    You do realize Gamaldi, the HPOU Prez, is also national VP of the FOP?

    He has to zealously represent his membership.

    There is a big difference in vigorously defending the membership and accusing the prosecutor of a felony.

    I concur, but that’s where my last statement comes into play.

    I think it will come back to bite them. If he was announcing an FBI investigation into her wrong doing? Maybe then. Otherwise, not wise.

    I can remember many times when I would get into a conversation with my union president and she would admit that she really wished a particular officer or agent would just resign. She was often forced to defend people who were so dirty or incompetent that neither the union nor management thought they should be employed with the bureau. But she was stuck. Sometimes my heart really went out to her.

    Interestingly, there’s a lesson in loyalty here with Gamaldi.

    Remember, he was on Fox earlier this month representing the FOP and saying it’s unfair that all LEOs were being judged by the action of one. The MN Police Officer’s Federation (union) is not an FOP affiliate.

    Once apon a time I had a CSM that was an insufferable bastard I didn't get along with one bit. One day, during family day, I had my 4 year old daughter in tow and was speaking with the battalion LTC and the CSM walked up and asked who the adorable little girl was. I introduced them and my daughter didn't miss a beat in asking "Daddy, is he the asshat?" I just had to shake my head. Needless to say, a crappy relationship totally went to hell with the CSM.
