    Wow, a lot of media outlets picked up on this story:


    Sun Herald:
    Sarasota Sheriff's major disciplined for belligerence at ball game

    Sarasota sheriff's office suspends high ranking major for drunk and belligerent behavior

    Major with Sarasota County Sheriff's Office suspended for "conduct unbecoming"

    Can someone who is tech savvy post online audio recordings of all the witnesses? Hearing is believing. Doh!

    • There is a scripture that says: "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word (Romans 10:17)."
    • There is a similar LEO saying: "In God we trust. All others we investigate."
    • Here is the SSO translation: "Public knowledge comes by hearing IA's audio-recordings of Paul Richard AND witnesses."

    The audio recordings are destroyed by state law after how much time elapses?

    The major takes a drunken golf trip with his friends at the sheriffs office to serve his suspension given to him by the Sheriff. Maybe the major needs to spend some time in the “Recovery Pod” at the Sarasota County Jail, attending dailey AA meetings?

    This investigation was very limited in scope for a reason. After reading that IA investigation it leaves a lot of questions unanswered. A lot of witnesses that were there should’ve been interviewed and we’re not in violation of state statute. Someone needs to pull the audio tapes of every witness to learn what really happened. Remember any three disciplinary standard violations within two years could result in
    potential termination.

    Could the major have been terminated?

    From experience

    Civilian employees get the BOOT for doing a lot less. If a civilian speaks up about upper Brass, a case is built and eventually they find a reason to get rid of them. Each level is afraid if the level about finds out anything bad, they will not look bad in Knightmares they are not supervising properly. Firing civilians get fired often for speaking bad of the Brass.

    One thing is clear here, no matter what admin does they are protected. If a road deputy acted this way I can only imagine how bad it would be. This Major apparently has a really bad history, it may be time for the public to demand action.

    This is from the comments section at the bottom of the H-T article:

It would have taken about 6.5 hours (estimated weight of 180) for him to become completely sober. In people with a high tolerance, it takes more alcohol to produce the outward signs of intoxication. It takes 30 to 60 minutes, after you stop drinking, for your BAC to reach its highest concentration.
    Even non-LEOs understand the outward signs of "drunk and disorderly conduct."

    Anonymity can be a good thing.
