Senate cuts police funding; shortly after cop tickets cars parked near statehouse....incoming
A Boston police officer has been suspended for ticketing a slew of vehicles parked near the Statehouse on the same day the state Senate cut funding for a police education bonus program.
Police department spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll tells the Boston Herald that internal affairs is investigating whether the ticketing spree was "improper use of authority." Commissioner Ed Davis told WBZ-AM radio that Officer John P. Mullan has been suspended for two days.
Mullan handed out 15 tickets on Wednesday, the same day the Senate slashed $51 million in funding for the Quinn Bill, which boosts pay for police officers with advanced degrees. The newspaper reports that Mullan earned an additional $13,000 last year based on the bill.
Some of the tickets were put on cars belonging to legislative staffers that were parked legally with legislative stickers. Driscoll says all the tickets will be reviewed.
Calls to a telephone listing for a John P. Mullan and the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association were not immediately returned Friday morning.

Well, if the cars were ticketed LEGALLY...he's a dummy and shouldn't have done that.
If they were ticketed illegally, too bad so sad. Even if he had some sort of ulterior (sp) motive for writing the tickets.....a parking violation is a parking violation. Take your ticket a move on.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13
