    Aren’t we leaving something out?

SPORTS WATCHING STANDARDS, really? Is that a class at USF in his masters program? That dude has lost his mind. Couldn't just say, yea a screwed up and take you punishment. Had to deflect and try to put it on others. Bottom line Paul, you were drunk and out of control, again. This time people saw it and you are now accountable for your actions. We'd say take it like a man, but you can't do that.
    Some things that are obviously missing in this case. What about excessive use. HE WAS OPENLY DRUNK AT A PUBLIC VENUE ACCORDING TO 11 WITNESSES. That is still a violation of our G.O’s. Why wasn’t he hit with that? Did they interview his wife? WE HAD A DUI HOMICIDE LEAVING THE PARK THAT DAY. DID THE MAJOR DRIVE HIS VEHICLE HOME? That is a violation of our G.O’s. WAS IT HIS PERSONAL VEHICLE OR WORK VEHICLE?
    If these questions were not addressed during the IA, then the IA is not complete! If it was a regular Deputy I Guarantee that those questions would’ve been asked and the deputy would’ve been terminated.

    Thumbs up Misfeasance in public office

    https://www.heraldtribune.com/news/2...-game-incident
    PAUL RICHARD DRANK 5 AND 1/2 BEERS IN ONE SITTING (IN SIX PACK TERMS):

    Mr. Knight, let's break this down into lay terms that are easy to understand:
    • Paul Richard told you that he drank four 16 ounce beers.
    • From a six-pack point-of-view, where each beer is 12 ounces, Richard drank 5 and 1/2 beers in one sitting.

    Mr. Knight, your statement that Paul Richard "only had 4 beers" is a conniving malfeasant minimization of the facts. People cannot take you as a credible arbitrator because you minimize and stretch facts to suit your desires.

    DEFINITIVE EVIDENCE:

    We have the following witnesses, all testifying that Major Paul Richard was "drunk and disorderly" in public:
    • 1 on-duty NPPD police sergeant
    • 1 off-duty BPD sergeant
    • 2 children (why would kids lie?)
    • 11 WITNESSES IN TOTAL

    Mr. Knight, your misfeasant statement that there is "no definitive or credible evidence" that Richard was drinking is disingenuous.

    INVESTIGATIVE SUMMARY:

    • QUESTIONS: (1) Did Richard drive himself home and (2) was this question asked during the IA?
    • MISFEASANT ANSWER: Mr. Knight said that there is no credible evidence that Richard was drinking. Therefore, Mr. Knight has concluded that Richard was authorized to drive himself home [sic].

    This is indicative of the current leadeship of the SSO. If caught doing something wrong lie about it. If questioning continues blame somebody else. Paul, it's called integrity and you don't have it. By promoting people like PR, DT, JW, Sheriff Knight does not only support this behavior but encourages it.

    Good question

    Something that should be looked at by the interviews that were done. Maybe the press will look a little deeper.

    Tom knight arrested for drunk and disorderly? Yes

    Wasn't Knight also arrested by VPD for disorderly conduct at a bar after drinking too much alcohol?
    The answer is yes and by Venice Police Department. Maybe that’s why he downplayed richard’s arrest. Birds of a feather.

    Was that question asked during the IA interview?
    1. A CD audio of the interview would have to be obtained.
    2. Then it would have to be transcribed (put into writing into a Q&A form) ***OR*** does a secretary transcribe that stuff? If so, then getting a copy of it will be easy.

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

Obviously, the guy pre-gamed [his drinking].

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.

    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.

    Thumbs up 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 eyes.....like they are not supervising properly. Firing civilians get fired often for speaking bad of the Brass.
