Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy James Lee who arrested Mel Gibson is being fired from the force

The deputy who accused the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department of retaliating against him after he arrested Mel Gibson in 2006 on a drunk-driving charge is being fired, an official said.

After arresting Gibson, Deputy James Mee sued the department, alleging his supervisors targeted him because he resisted requests to remove the actor's anti-Semitic slurs from an initial arrest report.

Earlier this year, he reached a settlement agreement for $50,000.

Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore would not comment on the details of the firing, but he denied it was retaliation for Mee's lawsuit.

"It has nothing to do whatsoever with the Mel Gibson arrest," he said.

Richard A. Shinee, Mee's attorney, said the department has been after Mee since the Gibson incident.

"Now they’ve put together this extremely flimsy case against him. This is a guy who had an outstanding career, a leader in street safety," he said. "He was well-respected until after the department got embarrassed by the Mel Gibson case, and they have pursued him relentlessly ever since."

Shinee said the department is trying to fire Mee over a June 17, 2011, pursuit of a drunk driver who slammed into a gas station, causing a fire. Mee received a letter dated June 7 notifying him the department intended to fire him, Shinee said.

Steve Whitmore voted for Obama then told him his vote had nothing to do with the Mel Gibson arrest.

Not a fan of Gibson but he may have a 'bone to chew'. Recent proof that John Travolta is quoted as saying 'Hollywood is run by old Jews who trade sexual favors for power'.He told his gay consort that.Maybe MG is getting back at what he HAD to do to launch his career. I know someone is the biz as a producer and they say it happens.
Therefore sexual crimes are involved, correct? What goes on in Hollyshit stays there and he be damned for breaking rank. Rhianna? She f'd and s'd her way all the way.Christina A. was forced ( in her contract) to marry the Jew for 5 years. He was the son of the label owner..so do not be naive. It's a human dump.
Wake up.Mel Gibson tried to become a Jewish Cleric once against his fathers wishes..read wikipedia.

So cops get semi famous themselves if they arrest famous people? Is that how it works?

No offense to LEOs: Why the fuck does the firing of some cop in LA make my radar here in Chi? If not for the fact this cop locked up Mel, why would I want to know about him?

Please remind readers to drink anything but Anheuser-Busch products when in the city of Shitago (Chicago).

Revenue goes straight to the Jackson family.

The Honey Badger should bite him for wearing that damn purse. The Honey Badger don't wear a purse and don't care.

Time for more Captain Crunch, in mommy's basement, of course.

What jag-off would write Mel Gibson... I'd guess he's a funny mother-fucker to hang out with. Nice fag purse homo.

Fuck that jagoff 'cop'. The mother fucker is the typical publicity hound cop that would lock up his mother if it would get him recognized, under the guise of , 'the law is the law'. He violated policy that ended tragically (pursuit) and was terminated for disobeying an order. He's the exact reason why police work has become harder with so many policies.
Fuck him.

OK, so where do you hide your off duty/ backup gun in the summer?

It is easy in the winter to hide a Sig 220, what do you do when it is a hundred out?

I would rather wear a large t-shirt and belt a gun to my shorts before I put on one of them cutsie fanny-packs.

In 1991, a couple of cops from California came to our tact roll call and tried to sell those fag bags. Not one sale. We did take them over to Beatrice's and found them a couple of real women, "Hoots" Halloran and "Crabs" Corcoran.

They showed them what women Really want!!!!!

Mr. SouthSide said...

Those guys did mention that they sold a lot of them on the north side. Figures.
