Double Standards of Justice June 16, 2010
Harold J. Wolfe 508-877-5541  
We learned back on May 8, 2010 that two Framingham police officers, Sgt. Scott Brown and Detective Lenny Pini, were being investigated for waving guns, threatening to shoot people and exposing themselves at EZ Storage in Framingham.

If I had been waving a gun and threatening someone or exposed myself, there would not be any internal investigation. I would have been arrested and incarcerated until I could pay bail and would subsequently be tried in court. The notion that the police are conducting an internal investigation while the two officers are free to do as they wish and are being paid by the taxpayers, shows a distinctly unfair double standard of justice. There has been plenty of time to conduct an internal investigation. It's becoming clear that this incident will be suppressed and hopefully forgotten by the media and citizens of Framingham.

Neither officer has been arrested and there might not be any publicly acccessible record of this incident in the courts which can be perused by citizens of Framingham in the future.

Both officers have been on paid administrative leave since May 6, 2010 at taxpayers expense. Are they enjoying their paid vacation on the cape? May I suggest that both officers be thrown off the force in such a way that they can never again be hired as police officers anywhere in this country. Perhaps, the Israelis might hire them near the Gaza strip.

Ironically, both officers were given an award on May 18, 2010 for teamwork. . Receiving the Chief's Unit Award, given to a department or shift that recognizes exemplary teamwork, were given to Detective Sgt. Scott Brown, and Detective Lenny Pini.
