Law Enforcement Officers should be fired when they need to be. But there should always be a well documented reason. They should have the right to appeal to a higher source, independent of the one that fired them, to review the facts.
I don't know the situation here. All I know are good things about Sgt Tully, and Sheriff Ingram. It's a shame, that in this state, many deputies and police officers, are fired at the drop of a hat, and no reason even needs to be given. This invites corruption. Look at the situation in Leland, and the Brunswick Sheriff's Dept, under Ronald Hewett, less then six years ago.
