The cop thing kind of surprises me... not that he was speeding, but that he got his job back afterwards.

Getting caught going over 100MpH is a big deal. In most states they impound your car right away and (I think) throw reckless driving charges at you. And if he was drunk while doing it I don't even know what else that would mean (public endagerment, etc).

My understanding is, having felonies under your belt pretty much kill your chances in GETTING a job as a cop. So I'd think getting them would also end your career... especially something like that.

Doing ONE of those, OK fine... maybe keep the job. But both of those at the same time probably warrants enough felonies to mean no police career.
Yes, it makes no sense until you factor in something as simple as corruption in the review commission. What sort of mental gymnastics do you have to engage in to decide to give a guy like that his job back, when his job is to protect and serve the public? It's beyond comprehension.
