A quick update before the post: I am finally recovering enough from that damn root canal this past Wednesday. The procedure took almost 4 hours and I had to go back for 'problems' Thursday morning that just were part of the deal, it seems. A nasty bit of business this one was. No sense going into details about this. I will gradually be working back into getting posts up. Thanks for those who have been and continue to pray for me! PatriotUSA
Denver cop fired for driving drunk at 143 mph wants job back
By Tom McGhee
The Denver Post
"Derrick Curtis Saunders, who had previously been cleared of charges he pointed a gun at a McDonald's employee in 2009, was arrested for speeding and DUI by the Colorado State Patrol. He couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday."
This guy was policeman in the first place? How arrogant and ignorant can one be in asking for their job back after such an incident? Seems he was cleared after pointing his gun at a McDonald's employee to 'speed up his order' back in 2009.
Not the first time he has had some 'problems ' on the job. Just the type of exposure unions need. He is a embarrassment to those that he worked with and are still on the DPD taking their jobs seriously to serve and protect the public.
Mr. Saunders is a danger to the community he wants to go back to work for. It is very clear he CANNOT be trusted with major responsibilities, carrying a weapon or even driving ANY car, let alone a police cruiser. He lacks anything close to the judgement and character one must have to be a policeman or in law enforcement at all, on or at any level.
If he gets re-instated back into his former job, it will be at the expense of the taxpayers of the city of Denver.
The judge needs to be looked at as well for handing down such a lenient sentence to Mr. Saunders. "An Arapahoe County Court judge sentenced him to five days in jail, fined him $300 and ordered him to perform 100 hours of community service, according to court records." He got off way too easy.
The union should wash it's hands of this loser.
"The penalty is "disproportionate to the offenses alleged and/or is excessive so as to be punitive rather than corrective in nature," according to the appeal, filed by the Denver Police Protective Association's lawyers.
Stolen from Knuckledraggin' my life away.
