HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!
I read this story last week and couldn't stop laughing. Police officers don't have instant credibility just because they are police officers. Most are honest, but there plenty of dishonest ones. Being a correctional officer certainly doesn't give you credibility. Many of them are completely unbelievable - although I have also met many who do their jobs well.
What has happened since?
As soon as he heard Whitton’s Bigfoot was a big fake, “I terminated him,” said Police Chief Jeffrey Turner said Tuesday.
“He’s disgraced himself, he’s an embarrassment to the Clayton County Police Department, his credibility and integrity as an officer is gone, and I have no use for him,” Turner said. “His behavior is unbecoming of that of a police officer.”
“This turn of events from hero to someone who defrauds a nation is just baffling. I don’t know how he got from one point to the other,” Turner said.
I was tempted to make a joke that even now most of the judges in Georgia still believe in Bigfoot, but I don't think that that would be appropriate or fair.
This is great news if you are a defendant pending trial and the police officer was the main witness against you.
