Suicide

http://www.aol.com/article/2015/11/04/hero-officer-staged-suicide-embezzled-from-youth-program/21259104/

A police officer embezzled thousands of dollars from a youth program.  There is no doubt about his guilt.  He stole the money by falsifying documents and some of that money he used to buy pornography.

He pretended to be chasing criminals and then he faked an attack on himself and committed suicide.  As a result of the fake call, a thousand police searched for three criminals who never existed for several days.

He violated his oath of office by stealing.  We are all weak, sinners, and subject to temptation.  Still, he should have turned himself in and taken his punishment.  He may have been able to make a deal with the DA and avoided jail time.  Instead he killed himself and frightened a lot of people.  He also made a lot of officers have to race around looking for killers that did not exist.  He dishonored his badge and dishonored his memory; that's what the SGT Says.
