& # 39; Hilarious how EVERYONE has anything to say AND Nobody asks about my safety … Well, this is what happened … I caught the officer sniffing a line cocaine from his hindquarters, & # 39; is the Facebook message.
& # 39; When I said something about it, he pulled a small gun out of his bag and said: & # 39; I would not like to say that you had this and you would fill it with my Mag & # 39; [Magnum gun]. I walked to the door looking for another officer. He was the only one. During one of his episodes. I was alone and in fact walked out the front door & # 39 ;.
The message continues: & # 39; I WILL NOT GET ANOTHER NUMBER IN THE POLICE POLICYBOARDS … DO YOU REALLY THINK I WILL WALK THROUGH A BREACH TO A PROTECTIVE ORDER? & # 39;
