An internal affairs report says a Daytona Beach police officer, Lt. Major Garvin, a 15-year veteran, demanded free coffee and tea from a Starbucks and threatened employees with slower emergency response times if they refused. He was fired July 8 after failing a polygraph test Garvin had insisted on taking.
The coffeehouse’s employees claim that since June 2007, Garvin had visited the store as many as six times a night while on duty. Besides demanding free drinks, workers complained that Garvin also cut in front of paying customers.
No more coffee donuts for that mannerless cop.

Apparently, an effort at fairness, justice, and responsibility has been made in the trial of a police office, Arthur Tesler. The Atlanta police officer has been sentenced to 4 years and six months in prison, six months of probation, and 450 hours of community service for lying to investigators after a drug raid ended in the death of a 92-year-old woman.
Kathryn Johnston died in a storm of bullets when raiding narcotics officers burst into her northwest Atlanta home on November 21, 2006, using a special no-knock warrant to search for drugs. Perhaps, this will serve as a reason to adjust this policy.
Tesler was convicted Tuesday of making false statements and was the only officer to go to trial.
