A Massachusetts bill aims to fire cops who swear on the job, obviously generating a passionate response from LEO’s across the state.
“Take a model officer, a 10-year veteran. One arrest and he drops an ‘F’ bomb. And we’re going to fire him? I think that’s over the top,” said Everett Police Chief Steven Mazzie, president of the Major City Chiefs. “Police departments wouldn’t tolerate any of that behavior anyway. … But I think it’s extremely difficult to legislate civility.”
