I am a recent retired cop from one of the best police organizations in the country. We got that reputation by all of us working our butts off to provide the community with the best police service possible.
I do not believe it is possible for anyone who has followed the recent negative publicity the department has received both locally and around the country, to understand how one officer (I use that word loosely) can use his position as president of PLEA to turn a department upside down. Spencer, like many of the officers who have commented in this section have already stated, is the worse self-centered repulsive, brain washing, dishonest person I have ever witness rip apart such a great police department.
Spencer's claim that he is a preacher is one of the lies that disturbs me the most. He uses that lie whenever he has his back up against the wall. I personally have seen him throw out verses from the bible that would make the Pope puke. As many negative things Spencer has done over the years to destroy our department, this lie about being a preacher will be the reason Spencer will burn in hell.
I have had numerous dealings with Spencer prior to my retirement. I am no doubt one of the two people (Jack Harris is the other person) Spencer disliked the most because we both put Spencer in his place and held him accountable for many things. Spencer had a knack for trying to keep officers on the department that should not work as an officer on any department due to their conduct. This was one of the agenda items Spencer used to make a name for himself to get elected. He would do unspeakable things to keep officers who had found themselves on the other side of the badge.
I know the time will come when Spencer will have to answer to a higher power ( althought he thinks he is the higher power) for all of the things he has done over the years. He will take a tumble before it is all over.
To all the men and women on the department, keep doing what you do best and be safe!!
