What Gives Good Cops a BAD NAME?

Be ALLEGED of domestic violence and suffer a 209A restraining order in Massachusetts, or one of those new thingies, where whoever goes to court first can get a Restraining Order against ANYBODY for ANYTHING, and you will never get a decent job ever again.STEAL from a citizen business as a PUBLIC SERVANT, and another taxpayer funded government agency will hire you……

MASSACHUSETTS — You don’t have to be INSANE to live here, BUT IT HELPS…..!!!!


You’re a corrupt cop who was stealing.

You lost your job…………..

So who will hire you??


You can’t make this UP……………………..from Don S.

Former Mass. police officer caught stealing groceries, hired by sheriffs department

January 26th, 2011 (1) Comment


The Norfolk County Sheriffs’ office has confirmed that it hired a former Walpole, Mass. police officer, who resigned from the department after he was accused of blatantly stealing groceries from a local Stop & Shop market.

In April 2009, David Haddigan was placed on administrative leave from the Walpole Police Department, after authorities said he repeatedly filled up shopping carts with food while in uniform, and left without paying. Store employees did not stop or report him, for fear of retaliation. Other officers in the department learned of his actions, and turned him in.

Haddigan resigned from the force on July 1, 2009 after a number of meetings with police and town leaders, during which he was confrontational and uncooperative.

Haddigan could have afforded to pay for the groceries, having earned a total of $129,000 in 2008.

A sheriffs department spokesman, David Weber, released a statement saying they were well aware of the alleged thefts before they hired Haddigan. His eight years of service as a correction officer with the Suffolk County Sheriffs Office prior to working in Walpole demonstrated to us that he has the ability to perform this job,the statement read. Mr. Haddigan has a masters degree in criminal justice and he underwent the same evaluation and assessment procedures that all of our recruits undergo prior to their appearance into the academy.

Despite the alleged crimes, Haddigan did not face criminal charges after his co-workers reported the thefts.

Following Haddigans resignation, Walpoles Police Chief, Richard Stillman, said that it was better for Haddigan to quit, rather than pursue legal action against the officer and incur a lengthy and costly battle in courts and with the police union. That was the best thing for the department. He was removed and hell never be a police officer again.

That is, until 2011.

Wicked Local Walpole

    That’s nothing. READ the investigation on this guy and know he still hasn’t been charged and is still out wondering around intimidating the public while they’re being asked to come forward next Monday night before the Selectmen who did nothing about this guy. You DO have to be insane to live in Mass, or plan on becoming insane for living here . . . that is, at least, if you believe our public officials care about their constituents who are being intimidated and harassed by corrupt police as a way of life.
