you know what? you're right. Something stinks about the entire situation. And I will even agree with you that despite an internal affairs investigation, with discipline applied, the lack of DUI and the lack of the officers termination doesn't pass the smell test.
But a single isolated incident does not reflect the majority of law enforcement officers.
I mean, the fair result should be anyone in that town should be able to drive around drunk, then get helped out of their vehicle when they passed out and not expect to get into any trouble.
