By now, most of us have had it with this story. As reported on Yahoo news, and every other place on earth, former Milwaukee Police Officer Oscar Ayala-Cornejo decided to lie about his citizenship to allow himself to become a police officer. I can understand wanting a steady job to support your family, etc. Really, much of the time that is what gets me to work each night.
Now, because of his compelling motivations, there is a bit of support coming his way in the form of “critics” who think the deportation action was too harsh.
Sorry folks, but cops can’t be liars. Think about this. There is a real issue here not in Ayala wanting to work (I am confident he is a good person with pure motives), but in his falsifying a government application to get the job.
It seems like we have watchdogs drooling at the feet of anyone wearing a badge these days. I wonder if the concerned liberals — sorry — citizens would be so upset if this officer’s name was Muhammad?
Just a thought…
