@ Joe Santer, just do it. don't release little blurbs to "PNS". The next time we hear about this it should be final!

If theft doesn't qualify as a firing offense, that tells you that a cop can get away with anything. Any of us "civilians" would have not only been fired but sent straight to jail.

Theft alone is enough to qualify as an offense that should result in termination. Convenience store employees would be fired over theft, and here we are talking about someone who has sworn to uphold the law! Not to mention, can anyone name me a professional industry (aside from ***********) in which it would be acceptable to download *****graphic images on a laptop owned by the respective company/agency? I know of people who have been fired from their jobs for misuse of email! Meanwhile, Parkersburg citizens get to pick up the tab for this clown receiving his salary and benefits while this all gets figured out, when it's pretty black and white! He should have to pay it all back if the appeal goes the City's (and the citizens') way.

Interesting... PN&S can print p.o.r.n.o.g.r.a.p.h.y. in the article, but the same word can't be used in comments. Stupid.

If my boss caught me stealing or watching p o r n on the company's computer I would be fired so fast it wouldn't be funny. That firing would even be held up by unemployment. So how can an officer of the law not be held accountable as private citizens. Uphold the firing and make him pay the back wages and legal fees to the city. Law enforcement should of all people be held to the or higher standards than regular citizens.

The city is just upset because his lawyer played his cards better than them. Most of the city's leadership and this idiot should all be canned. The system is so corrupt its silly

all i can say is WOW. theft and downloading*****to a colleagues computer arn't firable offenses? the thing that struck me is that the theft took place while the so called officer of the law was conducting a traffic stop meaning he used his position to pull over his "mark" and stole from a citizen he was sworn to protect. this alone is disgusting and should earn him a stay at the gray bar inn. also if he is on adminastrative leave then he should be required to clean up trash along the streets and the park or some other dirty job our city needs done to earn the money he otherwise doesnt deserve. and where is hindsight101 on this subject? he is always quick to remind us that he is the police's right hand man on the street. what no pithy comment from you? or do you only speak when the police look good? you phony

how can there only be 12 comments about this story? the public should be absolutely outraged that an officer sworn to protect the public preys upon it and then has his firing overturned! are we really so used to this sort of behavior from our police force that hardly an eyebrow is raised anymore? remember the old saying "if you dont stand for something then you will fall for anything"!

I agree there should be more comments. I've said this before, he should be fired and made to pay back the money he's been receiving for doing nothing. If he keeps his job he will receive no respect from the public. By the way, wonder who paying for his lawyer?
