lol he's wearing a sweater vest.

Yeah, I saw that.

That's horseshit. Cops NEVER pose with celebrities. EVER!

Anything you do in uniform can bite you after the fact. On-duty or not, you have created a nexus to your employment.

I have random people want to rake their pic with me all the time.

I couldn't tell you what celebrity had a conviction and who didn't. Good grief.

Yay Texas muh freedom!

So he's supposed to shun him because he smokes dope? I see it's a good thing. Keeps cops from being hated so much.

I'm glad the state public safety officials in Texas have solved the border problem so they can now go after these types of crimes.

The trooper is in trouble with posing with a known pot smoker. A pot smoker! Those filthy criminals! THERE OUGHTA BE A LAW!

I think it's the posture of the picture that did it. If the officer had his elbow on Snoops shoulder instead of the other way around I bet it would have been kosher. Police take PR and perception very seriously.

Complete bullshit, he was working security and snoop dogg asked to take the photo. I'm going out on a limb and say there is a good chance a Middle Aged white cop in Texas with a big cowboy hat on doesn't know snoop dogg from scooby doo.

I bet if he'd refused, he'd still be in trouble too.... just for different reasons.

Tx Troopers have a extremely high personal conduct code.

So high on some things it's moronic.
But they are one of the best L.E. agencies in this country.

Just don't get stopped by them speeding, your more likely then not going to get a citation.
I think some would write their on mothers a speeding ticket.

The Department of Public Safety holds some tight regulations about the behaviour of our troopers.
I knew a DPS trooper a number of years ago that moved in with his girl friend and after a few months the upper command found out and gave him the choice of resigning or moving out or get married.
All these people know about the conduct standard so there is that.
Link Posted: 4/2/2015 7:58:29 AM EDT
That seems asinine. Around here it would be considered good public relations.

Heck, there's a picture of me (in uniform) and L'il Wayne somewhere out there.
Link Posted: 4/2/2015 7:59:01 AM EDT
Would the Trooper had gotten into trouble had it been, say... Will.I.Am or Jay-Z?

Is it the fact that he's a felon that is the source of contention?

What if the Trooper had his picture taken with some other random felon, say Bill Ayers, who then posted the pic to his instagram? Same rules in effect?

Or is it the combination of a)- famous person, b)- felon, c)- black = disciplinary action.

So much WTF. Had the Trooper asked Snoop for the pic, and then posted it to HIS OWN (the troopers) instagram account, then yah, I see a potential issue.

This is the complete inverse of that. How the fuck is that the Troopers fault?

So glad I don't work for a .gov agency. Fuck that noise. Total lunacy.
Link Posted: 4/2/2015 7:59:52 AM EDT
Give me a break! Some people can find wrongdoing and take offense to almost anything. We all need to lighten up. Bonus points to the cop because he went against his natural instincts and did not shoot the Dogg.

The only difference is that the cop probably knows who willie nelson is and what he looks like. That guy has no clue who snoop dog is.

"While working a secondary employment job, Trooper Spears took a photo with a public figure who has a well-known criminal background including numerous drug charges," says the order, which was made available by Spears' lawyer, Ty Clevenger.

Clevenger claimed the order was retaliation for Spears reporting misconduct in 2014 by an officer at another Texas law enforcement agency, NBC reported.

I would think there are far more important things to worry about...I feel bad for the officer..maybe snoop will pull some strings and go to bat for the officer...

The deputy didn't detect the presence of an odor that (due to his training) he recognized as marijuana?

That's odd, because I'm pretty sure Snoop had at least a quarter ounce of Kush in his left hip pocket.

This is the new thing employees do-a counseling, with a written notice if it.

But it's not a disciplinary action group notice their it can't be challenged it appealed. But it can go in your personnel file.

Liberal leaders in law enforcement are the most crooked people on earth.
