Detective Stephen LeBert is getting destroyed in the national press. It is time for Chief Leo Sacco to remove LeBert.
The 839 comments on Yahoo thus far are beyond damaging to LeBert’s career. He’s “all done” to quote LeBert himself to the driver who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, facing the psychotic LeBert in all his raging bull glory.l
The crackpot cowboy, LeBert, has quite the resume, and this waterfall of bad news for Muccini-Burke and McGlynn comes just 97 days before election 2015. Perfect timing to help finally remove the last remnants of McGlynn’s ugly Administration.
The Atlantic calls LeBert’s actions road rage in its glaring headline:
I am sick and tired of the brotherhood of police officers who protect each other when they do bad stuff. the time for this type of stupidity is over. you are civil servants, you are to protect civilians, not each other.
The police officer had no right pulling anyone over in an unmarked car. the rule is in place like that to protect people from non cops pretending to be cops. NEVER pull over for an unmarked car, even if the officer is in uniform, call 911 immediately and move to a populated area.

Is it a coincident that the only two things this detective ever did wrong just happened to be caught on camera? Definitely not! This Medford cop has a bad reputation. Reports also say Lebert was drunk. I am told he does things all the time that put grime on the police badge. Look at the you tube video of the incident where he says “railroad tracks and tell him to lie down”. You can see it in Detective LeBert’s face that he was so mad that he was being video and Lebert wanted to do more but had to restrain himself because of the camera. He even makes accusations that the video taker takes drugs. Lebert instigates the person videoing. Medford is not the best area. It’s a shame that Lebert makes the Medford police look bad. There are so many hard working good Medford police officers. The “put a hole in your head” incident is why I just purchased a dash camera.
I was taught while serving a 22-year career in the military that in order to get RESPECT, one needs to EARN it. Police Officers today appear to me to DEMAND respect. WRONG answer, folks. As long as Law Enforcement Agencies across the United States allow this type of “Abuse of Authority” continue, rogue cops will surely continue to bully citizens, just like the #$%$ in this story.
