For the second time in less than three weeks, an Upstate, New York
police officer has been charged in a hit and run, and receives a paid vacation.
In my March 7th blog, I told you about Rochester, NY Police Sgt.
Christopher Brown, who struck a pedestrian then left the scene.
Brown was later charged with leaving the scene of an accident, and
was suspended with pay.
Or as I like to call it (what it really is), a paid vacation.
Well, this time it's Geneva, NY Police officer Robert Peters who is getting
paid to sit at home.
Officer Peters, who has been on the GPD since 2008, was suspended
with pay after hitting a parked New York State Gas and Electric truck on
Castle Street, while work crews were working nearby, on March 5th around
Peters also hit another vehicle near Geneva City Hall.
That vehicle was also parked.
Unlike Rochester, NY Police Sgt. Christopher Brown, Geneva Police
officer Robert Peters was off duty at the time he decided to flee.
Perhaps Scott MacCollum says it best in a facebook comment he left
regarding officer Robert Peters.
"Wonder what his BAC was?"
I'm sure we'll never know.
