I don't believe Smitty did anything. I don't know all the facts but I believe this was a set up or a witch hunt. He never ever, ever, struck me as that type of person at all... Something stinks.

Well 12 hours come again this time I hope the officers have another voice to cry out on their behalf now that they were able o silence Dwight. If he was set up so was shame with Anna Nicole and he still on his seat. I hope the persons responsible for the witch hunt realize when digging ditches dig and the female complainant get everything she was promised.

I think it's horrible that a distinguished officer such as Dwight Smith is paraded handcuffed in front of the news media, and doing the perp walk. The Police should have handled this matter in a more professional manner and handled it as and internal matter. It's so sad that what appears to be a retaliation move on the part of the police establishment to try and keep one of their own from seeking a nomination to a executive office could have disgraced him to this point. I do believe that Commissioner Greenslade could have done a lot more to bring this situation to a better conclusion than this. Shame on you Greenslade

They setting Dwight up because they know he will resist the government putting back the 12 hour shift. Which actually does nothing, they just do it so it could look like they doing something. Plus the association have elections coming up soon to, so a little internal politics might be at play as well.

What appears to be happening her is exactly the point I was making the other day, about our people. We are willing to do anything! If he is guilty as charged, then he should not have been in that position, because this kind of action should have been known long ago. So, someone was covering up something. If he is not guilty, and this is all a set up, then those who have set it up should not be in the positions they are in. It seems that we are so willing to do wrong, and think there would be no consequences. This is at the root of what is wrong with our country, and the criminals see it, and then decide, well if they can do it and get away with it, then why can't we? For things to change, we must first be willing to acknowledge that there is something very wrong! If he has been an officer of the law in the position he is in, for so many years and there was no known complaint against him in this regard, before now, then shouldn't we question, why now? Is it because he is speaking out? I don't know all the facts in the case, but something seems very fishy to me. I see in the news that we are focusing on getting rid of all the illegals in our country, because they are the problem. I dare say, they are a direct result of our willingness to nurture a culture of criminality and lawlessness, from the Judiciary, including those involved in politics, straight down to the little drug peddler on the street. Yet we expect this "Christian Nation" to reap the benefits of Peace, in its communities. It's not going to happen, until we are willing to admit what is wrong, and then change. We will continue to put a Band-aid on something that has a deadly wound.The programs that we are implementing will only address the effects, they will not and cannot fix the cause. And, we will continue to turn a blind eye to the wrong we do. We want to appear to be doing something about crime in our country so that people will continue to vote, and hope, something will change.
Just thought I'd give my two cents.
