Cumberland County Police Behaving Badly

In Cumberland County, something smells fishy. According to, a county deputy investigated a police officer for the Village of Toledo. The sheriff’s department suspended the deputy for ten working days and the Village of Toledo fired the police officer.

This story makes me wonder if the deputy’s only misdeed was breaching the Blue Code of Silence. It will be interesting to see where this story goes.
