    People like them should be locked up in different drug rehab Florida centers so they can see with their own eyes what drugs can do to people.I can't understand why people choose to use drugs because the "good thing" you get over drugs is just a delusion and nothing more.

    When I read this article I just feel like we have drug rehab centers for nothing. Policemen are doing their best to catch drug dealers and they get thrown to prison. I understand that they might not acted by the book, but still, we are talking about drug dealers here.

    The first time I read the title of the article I thought they got arrested for stealing some drugs for themselves but it's not because of that. Unfortunately they should have known better, breaking the rules usually gets you behind bars. At least they made that arrest, drug dealers are responsible for a lot of atrocities on the street, I've learned my lesson with drugs the hard way but fortunately I got my second chance in a drug rehab treatment.

    For you non-LEO verified individuals who are saying that the police are above the law, you're are the biggest losers. You are no better than the drug pushing POS.

    We don't need liars and people who break the law to get justice.

    Suspension with out pay is what they should get all that the other charges should not have applied. It's not like they took some for theirselves they gat drugs off the street and the person who was transporting, good job by all accounts, ok they should have change the report. Unless it was a set up the other officer should have sided with them, it's their word against the criminal three on one who would you believe. I don't think they should lose their job over that I know and have seen worse.

    I am sure the officer and detective were good cops. They survived several years on the department. One a detective and one a 'senior' road officer. What they tried to do was done wrong. Someone called the third officer a rat and probably never spent a day in the street or chased someone. The news report advised that the third officer was a School Resource Officer. That job is not given to someone who has not made arrests. How many officers volunteer for that job? I was an SRO and guys I worked with and knew from other departments told me that was the ONE JOB they would never want. One cop for perhaps 1000 - 2500+ students?? And before you ask, it was my job my last seven of my thirty-three years. Now, at the scene, there was a detective there. In departments I know of they are supervisors with a corresponding uniform rank of Corporal or Sergeant. Was the third officer right or was he wrong? If the third officer was wrong then the first two were right to falsefy a police report. Perhaps when the third officer said something to whomever, the first two were asked if the report was correct or did they want to change anything. A good supervisor would do this for his people. If they said no, that the report they wrote was correct, then they screwed up. Sooner or later, and probably in court, the truth would have somehow come out and then how would it look that the officers lied under oath? We have all bent a couple of things in our carreer but how many down right lied? And what did we, not even considering the public, what did/do we think of them? If any of my brothers or sisters lie to me about an investigation, how can I trust them anymore? What do you do when John Doe Citizen lies to you about a crime or about you in a crime?

    They made a mistake and lied...not good...i can see what they were trying to do..but for that rat fu@# cop just let that drug dealer out of jail and puts two good cops in jail. and a big law suit to its dept. I bet he never did a day in the street or chased a perp with a gun nor made any drug arrest. He could have done something at the scene, and not back at the station house, am sure there wa a sgt. or LT. ON THE SCENCE.

    Yes it was dumb to lie, and they should have been counseled as to proper procedures - perhaps a suspension had they not falsified the report. I never falsified a report or planted evidence, but I did bend a few laws, accomplished my goal, got a couple of letters in my jacket, and was never a favorite of upper level supervision - but I enforced the laws equally and fairly - It was never personal ( well except the guy who tried to run me over while helping a murder suspect escape and the judge gave him 3 years probation)
    Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Play it straight and let the cards fall where they will.

    Never lie. That is one of those things that wiull get your badge, and possibly locked up, quicker than anything else. They had the time to obtain a warrant or find some legal reason to enter the Apt. Heck even if they did what they did and had not lied about it they would still have a job and not have been arrested. Yelled at for screwing the investigation up maybe but not arrested! Rule #1, DO NOT LIE!

    It's to bad that for a small drug bust someone puts there career on the line. We all know what we will find when we get on the other side of the door but sometimes you just have to wait and take the longer approach! It's not going anywhere and then you dont put other Officers in an intergrity position! One I would never want to be in !

    I don't see why they rushed to get into the apartment rather than wait for a warrant. The guy they busted wasn't going anywhere and they could of had a marked unit sit on the apartment while a warrant was obained. Their thriftyness became their downfall in the end. By the book cannot be repeated enough!

    They had plenty of time for a warrant and chose the wrong path, the young officer did the right thing, the other two threw integrity out the window to make a bust. Careers and freedom down the drain.
