Officer who wrote on his Facebook page that there should be a law allowing police to take people to jail for being "stupid" has resigned.
A Montana police officer who wrote on his Facebook page that there should be a law allowing police to take people to jail for being "stupid" has resigned.
Bozeman City Manager Chris Kukulski says Cody Anderson submitted his resignation Wednesday.
He says Anderson related that his resignation was in the best interest of the police department. Anderson apologized for his online comment last month, saying it didn't "reflect an attitude or atmosphere within the Bozeman police department."
His posting came to light last month when a Bozeman man filed a lawsuit against the city, Anderson and other officers, saying his civil and constitutional rights were violated when he was wrongly arrested.
The lawsuit alleges entries from Anderson's Facebook profile indicate he has a lack of respect for citizens' rights and a willingness to abuse his position of authority.

And people wonder why I don't have a facebook or myspace page. To me it just isn't worth it'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

I am constantly amazed at the statements made by officers I know on Facebook. What in the hell can they be thinking?*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

WTF!!! I arrest stupid people all the time. Business would be way down without them.

You know, I think Bozeman might be better off if their interwebs went away.
It was just this past June when the when the City Attorney was defending their policy of asking for not only usernames, but login information to Facebook, etc. We even discussed it at the time.
Now here they are in the news again.

I've said it before... I've got "nefarious" Myspace/Facebook pages. They don't count... They're infiltration tools.
I've got a "legit" Facebook page. It's set as private as I can; I'm picky about who gets on. Mostly family stuff, some fun. But little that could even loop back to work.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.

I can't help but wonder if the officer in question even had his page set to private.
As it is, even though I do have a private set myspace page, lately these days I hardly visit it. Unless it is to view a few conservative blogs that I subscribe to and catch up with a few friends. The only access that I have granted to my page is to family, friends that I can trust and that I know in real life, and to fellow posters from here and another LE forum site.
I have more fun over here anyways.
