    It’s about time. When my daughter was in middle school, many years ago already, there was already many questionable issues with this officer. And that was over 10 years ago. Now that it’s on the table, I hope all you girls come forward that had any issues from this officer that worked at the school to “PROTECT” the kids there. A badge is not a free pass to break the law and get away with it. It’s an honor and a duty to uphold the law. Too many times we’ve seen it look more like a tool for some officers to do as they please, not as the law states it must be done.
