The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Pinellas County detention deputy Michael Kenefic. He gets the award for the following-

LARGO - A Pinellas County detention deputy has been suspended for using the sound of his stun gun to try and wake up an inmate.

According to an internal affairs report, Deputy Michael Kenefic thought the crackling sound of his Taser would rouse inmate Robert McAllister on July 27. It did not.

McAllister had fallen asleep at on the floor of the jail's intake section.

Kenefic, a three-year veteran of the agency, received a 15-day suspension. His punishment also includes a charge of misconduct for falsifying a report.

The falsifyiing of a reports by policemen have always bothered me. If they are willing to lie in that particular part of their work, they have no business being in law enforcement. Police should be held to a very high standard.

Pinellas County detention deputy Michael Kenefic doesn't just get a fifteen day suspension, but is also today's Knucklehead of the Day.

I would think that once an LEO has falsification of a report on his disciplinary record, his future in law enforcement is pretty bleak, since it would be bound to come up in cross-examination in any testimony that he gives.

He got in trouble for using the sound to wake up the inmate? That's pretty weak. I thought when I scanned the word Taser that he used it as a wake up tool. I am so disappointed.
