The truth is this officer wasn't fired, he resigned. He had an opportunity to stay on the department and face an appeal in an open hearing with the BOPC. The reality is that Straub used lethal force in Westport, when it was completely out of control. To blame anyone else for his departure is a deflection of his own unlawful actions. He doesn't get to re-write history here. We know the truth and won't let you change history. He opened the door to criticism. He should be thankful that his round didn't hit anyone, or his story would have been much different.

His departure is exactly what the community should want. An officer who made a horrible decision, and will never serve again. I am sure his story sounds sad, but his story should have started with "Once upon a time".
