Editor’s Note: The staff and owners of Conservative Hideout 2.0 have nothing but the utmost respect for Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, Firefighters and the Military. We understand that the vast majority of police take up that calling to serve their fellow man and to try and make their corner of the world a better place.
However when one of the boys in blue over-reaches the bounds of his/her authority as laid out in our United States Constitution, they make the rest of the LEOs look bad. Further, when video evidence of that crosses our desk here at CH2.0, we show it in hopes that shedding light on bad behavior will help to correct it, in the long run.
Be warned, the video shown below is not safe for work, or to be viewed around little ones with big ears.
Yesterday police were contacted in regard to a video posted online which appeared to show an inappropriate interaction between an on-duty member of the Sheriff’s Office and a civilian, resulting from a suspicious vehicle complaint in the Town of Halfmoon.
The Sheriff’s Office has identified and interviewed all parties involved in the interaction and as a result, the police officer has been suspended without pay effective immediately, pending the outcome of the investigation and possible disciplinary action.
The Sheriff’s Office takes matters such as this very seriously and does not in any way condone anything less than professional behavior from our members. Sheriff’s wish to thank the members of the community who brought this to light and cooperated fully with the investigation.
At this time, this is an internal personnel investigation as there is no criminal complaint from the involved civilian. No additional information will be released until the investigation is concluded.
Epic Times had this to say about the incident:
A recent video appears to show an inappropriate interaction between an on-duty member of the Saratoga, NY Sheriff’s Office and a civilian – the officer has been suspended without pay. Do you think he went too far?
