Wow, some harsh crits here. At least this ended up being a <i>charge</i> and therefore a public record, unlike what happens to some politicians (e.g. Czarty's now infamous and vanished domestic abuse case). We'll see what happens to the officer in court.
For my own record of opinion, I don't believe the officer should lose his job, but there are restrictions here. If he loses his license, then he cannot retain his patrol-car duties for the period of the suspension. We have bike patrols, so maybe he can be temporarily assigned there. He could also "drive a desk", since we still have desk jobs that uniformed officers are filling.
I'm basically saying that once he's punished and serves his punishment, he fulfills his duty to us and should not be thrown out (with all his knowledge and training going with him) with a termination of his employment. In fact, this should apply to every one of us, once we serve time or pay fines in restitution for our crimes.
