Veteran Maine cop first on scene of deadly mass shooting slams state police ... trends now
A police officer who tried to stop Robert Card’s gun rampage through his home town has lashed out at Maine Police and accused them of bungling the search for the mass killer.
Sergeant Jon Guay of Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office described Maine Police as ‘utter clowns’ and said they could not be trusted to run a Dunkin Donuts after they took 48 hours to find the killer who left 18 dead last week.
The Lewiston-born officer accused state police of keeping local police in the dark in an impassioned post on Facebook.
‘Radio silence is the best phrase to describe the amount of information the Maine State Police shared with the hundreds of law enforcement officers who responded to assist with this manhunt,’ he wrote.
‘The upper echelons of the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit and Command Staff are utter clowns and I wouldn’t hire them to manage the morning rush at Dunkin Donuts much less an investigation of this size.’
