One more corrupt Police Chief.. FBI and DA will investigate

In a stunner, even for Massachusetts, a Salisbury Police Chief has been fired by the Town Manager for exchanging drugs and favors for sex with at least 4 women. It appears that many in the community (58 witnesses) knew about this, even rank and file members, (14 officers) for a long time,(2006) but did nothing to stop it or investigate it. The code of silence is alive and well in Salisbury.

Look for charges, a lengthy trial, lots of witnesses and jail time for one who once again, abused and gamed the system.

Just one question for you Jim. Why is this a stunner, isn't this pretty much the norm for cops in MA, they are corrupt?

Actions of second cop scrutinized » Local News », Newburyport, MA
The report, written by retired Salem police Chief Robert St. Pierre, points to a close relationship between L’Esperance and Detective Mark C. Thomas. St. Pierre states that Thomas — who got his law degree in 2008 and owns a downtown Boston law firm that specializes in criminal defense, personal injury and a variety of other legal areas — was granted special favors by L’Esperance.
Among those favors was permission to study for the bar exam during hours when he was officially “on duty,” the report states. Thomas studied in an Amesbury office and was given permission to go into Boston to access a law library. He failed the bar exam in 2007 but passed it the following year, the report says.
The report also states that L’Esperance sent a letter to the FBI that misrepresented Thomas’ position within the police force. The letter was part of an application for Thomas to attend the National FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., which St. Pierre described as “a prestigious institution and admittance to the academy is a coveted law enforcement experience.”

Detective Thomas will soon come out clean as a whistle and the real focus will go on the report writer, Robert St. Pierre and the current Town Manager, Neil Harrington.
