Let's see......I'm having a lot of stress so maybe I can just steal something and I'll feel better. Sorry, ms defense attorney, stealing is wrong, immoral and a crime. I might feel somewhat differently if someone were stealing small amounts of food for their child to survive, but someone in law enforcement stealing prescription drugs? Somehow that's ok due to stress?

Okay, he is NOT a dirty cop. He resigned, so now he is just an alleged criminal who stole drugs.

Being a cop is a tough, dangerous and often thankless job, but the tiny number of bad apples who taint their reputation need to be dealt with under the law, and if found guilty, punished accordingly.

Many thanks to the "clean cops" but not so much to the occasional "dirty cop" or former cop who is alleged to be dirty.
