The issue I got from that Post was the fact that it showed how much power Post actually has over every LEO in the State Of Firestone. Max said that If you don’t say your Badge# and Name, he will outright remove your Certification. Now keep in mind this is done without your department head, your sergeant or any in the department having no say in the matter. The crazy part “by law he can”. Now let me first say up front I respect him dearly but the amount of power he has over every single person that has ever become LEO is not good and frankly is scary.
God forbid if he ever stepped down and someone power hungry took Post position they can fire each and everyone of you without the need of Court or speaking to any department head something max knows very well. This much power to someone no matter how much trust is never okay NEVER. If ever Max hated you he can take away your Post Certification effectively destroying your entire career is what he has and isn’t afraid to use it. He showed that in the Announcement he made. He essentially is the " Police, Jury and the Judge". That should never be ok and needs to be addressed and fixed asap.
Now for Solution, I believe if someone was going to lose his certification, then that person has the right to go to court and face his accuser and make his case to either Jury of his peers or A judge. 1 person should not be the dictator of everyone in the state of Firestone. I have spoken to the Governor on this matter and the courts and even senator.
I URGE EACH AND EVERYONE ONE OF YOU WETHER LEO OR CITIZEN ACT NOW AND VOICE YOUR CONCERN OVER 1 PERSON HAVING THE ABILITY “LIKE THANOS” WITH SNAP OF A FINGER DISAPPEAR YOUR ENTIRE CAREER YOU WENT FROM TIER 1 TO TIER 6 AND DID PAGES AND PAGES APPLICATION JUST TO LOSE IT BECAUSE THE PERSON DOESN’T LIKE YOU AND NOTHING COULD STOP HIM IS NOT OK. Use your voice and speak up before it’s you who is losing everything you worked so hard for. This is one of those make it or break it moment. You choose which side you want to be on and Act.
no cap. at least put a civilian over watch board, or senate. something to regulate and step in if they see fit. i think that’s what the senate tried doing (before max and everyone that approves of post having full control) harassed the senator in dms until he withdrew the bill. i don’t like how max (and post) can legit say ‘i don’t like you’ and remove your cert, then your dept has to term you. no, I’m not saying that’s happened but it might.
i mean, can your high school degree your diploma or college revoke your degree?
pls don’t harass me over this I love u max and everyone who reads this
POST have always had this power so why is it a concern now? All who have a POST Certification took an oath. Failure to uphold the oath results in certification being removed. I see no reason why things should change just because the Director made an announcement saying that all with a POST Certification have to follow the Constitution.
It’s a bit stupid indeed. Let’s say someone in DHS did something, people misunderstood it but DHS can’t explain the truth due parts of it being classified. The POST Director revokes the person’s certification. Now the issue is that DHS wouldn’t be able to explain to the Director why the agent from DHS was right, since it was classified.
This is an easy scenario but explains a lot.
One person shouldn’t be able to hold so much power… Support.
I have a solution of sorts. Currently Innovative and I plan to implement a system requiring hearings for revocations. The POST Director (or POST employee with revocation authority) will preside. A DOJ Representative and a LEA HICOMM member (though not one from the accused department) will also serve on the board. The accused will be allowed to come and give their defense, and the complaint may attend as well and give their piece. The board of inquiry will then vote on revocation, but must come to a 2/3 majority.
