Yeah wonder if this will go anywhere in the legal process. This deputy is the son of a Alameda County Sheriff Capt and the grandson of the Alameda County Sheriff Office undersheriff. Get the broom, this is one definitely swept under the carpet.

Hey Retired Leo (glass house), nowadays cops seem to be held accountable for criminal conduct, as reported in the news. I wonder how things were handled in your day? Oh wait, I already know.

Please follow the case closely and you’ll see that you are wrong on this one wrong.

Hahahaha. I got to respectfully laugh at your glasshouse/cops being held accountable for criminal activities slam at me. it appears your belief that accountability for cops related to command staff of a law enforcement agency is normal these days is a little bit of a fantasy in your rose colored lenses you view through. It appears this deputy is now back on the job after spending his last 30 days at rehab, in Maui. Yep that's right, Hawaii and paid for by your tax $$$. Not bad. Have dui crash, assault citizens, fight with arresting agency, and have drugs in your car (cocaine & marijuana edibles) to get trip to Hawaii and keep working in a position of authority enforcing the laws you break while earning $100000 a yr. So research before you speak my friend "friend of LEO"

If true. Completely unacceptable. Gives good cops a bad name and furthers the community divide.

Yes Pleasanton Parent, it is every bit true. Lots of problems in that sheriff office culture. Too bad. It was once an honorable policing agency back when sheriff Plummer was at the helm. Those were the days when people were held accountable.

Thanks, Retired LEO. When working cops are unwilling to testify against other officers, they become as guilty of the crime as well. This is all too common in police-involved shootings. And it hurts ALL cops. How can I trust one when I don't know if he has covered for another one?
