While he was demoted, I have very strong feelings about this. Although I beleive people make mistakes... I believe that as LEO's, we should live our lives as examples.

He got pinched for an OVI. He either took the chemical test to contradict SFST's, and prove his innocence, or refused because he knew he was guilty. For the majority of offenses, I can give the benefit of doubt, but this is a black and white issue. Wrong is wrong, and right is right.

By being demoted, it seems that he may argue that any additional departmental punishment is double jeopardy.

Being at the top, and handing out discipline, he should have been the epitome of an example to the people under his command. He wants to posture ethics, and does this? The only honorable thing for him to do is to resign.
