Stupid cops

A cop from nearby Chatham (yes, Cheryl, your town), got suspended for leaving his loaded gun in a backpack in our town, after a night of drinking. Yes, the off-duty cop was drunk, and the Westfield police had to call a “responsible adult” to take him home (after getting complaints by locals).

The next day, a Westfield resident called the cops to report a backpack in front of his house, containing a loaded handgun and the cop’s ID.

The cop, who earned $102,432 last year, was demoted from seargent to patrolman, suspended from work, had to pay hearing costs, and got a salary demotion to match his new job title.
