    Bump to all the comments. 30 days without pay is very steep! Don't know too many professions that would dish out such punishment (non LE included).

    This Sgt was wrong for doing this but 30 days without pay, man that is pretty steep! With him being a Sgt. they have other options such as a 3 day without pay suspension and reduction in rank, or a week or maybe as much a two weeks without pay and being allowed to use his vacation days to even a probationary reduction in rank etc. A month without pay is pretty darn tough. Maybe the Deptartment never bothered to tell them it was legal to film and/or photograph Officers. Depending on this Sgt's record I would go as little as a weewithout pay and allow the Sgt to just lose a weeks vacation AND probation for his Sgt rank for 6 months to as much as two weeks unpaid suspension and reduction in rank and that suspension could still be a two week loss of vacation.

    If a month off without pay doesn't get your attention I don't know what will. I once got 3 days off without pay for going off during roll call, all I did was raise my voice while giving my opinion abt what I thought was wrong, I never cursed or made any threat of any kind. They also sent me to anger management. Needless to say, that was the 1st and last time I do that.

    This kind of action and behavior only fuels the publics distrust of officers!
