Assclown Of The Day

PORTLAND, Oregon — A Gresham police officer fired for driving drunk in an unmarked police car has filed a $6 million lawsuit against the city, the police chief and others, alleging his rights were violated under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The lawsuit filed in Portland says Jason Servo was suffering from alcoholism, a recognized disability under the act, and shouldn’t have been fired.

The suit also alleges Servo was denied due process, and the police union failed to represent him adequately.

Servo was arrested in January 2011 after he crashed into a ditch while off duty. The lawsuit says he had spent the day at firearms training and then went out to eat and drink with fellow officers.

As a life long imbiber, I’m very aware of the militant and aggressive prosecution of drinkers.  This, of course, is carried out by police officers. 

There’s something really special about a law enforcement officer who violates the law and then wants rewarded for it.  It wasn’t even his car, it was the city’s!!! 

A cop, driving a city owned car, gets drunked up, wrecks the car and thinks he shouldn’t be fired.  Not only that, he thinks he should be rewarded for his reckless and illegal behavior!  One has to wonder how many drunk drivers this assclown has cuffed and stuffed throughout his career. 

Don’t get me wrong.  If you drink and then wreck, you should be cuffed and stuffed.  It’s just that there ought to be a special little place where we put people like Servo. 

It’s stuff like this which causes people to lose faith in the system.  Alcoholism is a disability?  Yea, baby!!!!!!  Retirement, here I come!!!!!

    I love it!
    A Gov.Agcy. were I work documented a guy drunk on the
    job many times and fired him.A year later a slick lawyer
    gets him reinstated with all back pay and leavetime. the
    guy goes on vacation with all that money and never comes
    back. Oh did mention the Union was so proud of their victory.

    It is Oregon- he will win.

  4. don’t think I have ever agreed with you more. I am very dubious of all these disabilites and diseases. that said i am no fan of the criminal justice system, but I don’t care how you got to be an alcoholic or what treatment you might get from a caring therapeutic nanny state, you CAN’T be a police officer if you gotta drink

    Imagine the boost to the economy if he wins 6 million and blows it all on booze and hospital stays.

    ‘a recognized disability under the act’

    I wonder if they get their own parking space.

    I’m a bit confused about the hat tip..is it for a different Scott? Did you do a search for this after my tangle with PhD where I asked about drug addicts being given a free pass because they were born with a predisposition for such behavior?
