I studied Criminal law in college and the case laws and history behind most of them. State side rulings and Supreme Court rulings. etc... There is more action taken against law enforcement officers now than before. From what I studied the domestic violence laws were tailored due to police officer abuse of the system. While in the process of a domestic trial, you can not carry a weapon etc. They abused the lein system so now it is a felony for misuse of the lein system. It was a majority opinion by Justice White because of police officers shooting fleeing suspects now called the "fleeing felon rule". You cant shoot someone in the back basically violation of the fourth amendment rights. Tennessee V Garner
They are held to a higher standard and should be but the job is very frustrating on both sides when they want to be part of the public but can not. Take it from me I studied criminal statistics and law violations are a lot more common than the news portrays. Officers I've befriended have all said in some way they wish they could do certain things if it wasn't for the career they chose.
Now this about Ronnie. Most union contracts do not have that provision for testing anabolics. Normally just the normal panel. Im sure his colleagues are aware of his usage but can not question him or he could file a grievance? Maybe a lawsuit? It's his way of using the law to his advantage. Im sure his superiors have always kept a close on eye on him and dont exactly condone his secondary career.
