I saw the ProJo alert this morning. On one hand, what else is new? On the other, is this guy legit? He’s getting fired and suddenly alleges a cover-up? I don’t know what to think.

This is what the modern usage of ACAB is trying to point a finger at. This union has a history of cover up and firing/demoting of whistleblowers to serve it's own self interests. And thus there's no such thing as a "good cop" because they rid them from duty when they stand up to bad cop behavior. It's a racket.

Is this guy legit? It remains to be seen but this is a familiar cycle.

I don't disagree with you but after reading on why this cop was fired, I don't think there's a good argument this cop was fired for retaliation. This is what got him fired

The only real question with that is how the fuck did it take 5 years

Yeah it's hard to parse out what happened since everyone has it in their best interests to lie in this whole story.
