  • I can’t believe that is all this piece of shit got! Probation? Anyone else who pulls a gun on someone would have gotten worse. What the F is wrong with the pansy ass judicial system here? He has a history of pulling shit like this, now he is free to keep doing it, albeit he won’t be hiding behind a badge for a while. Let heroin dealers go and now let a bad cop back on the streets. SMH

  • Such b.s., 3 years probation, wtf?

  • How Kevin made it to a police force is beyond me, he has prior DV cases in humboldt, he has been through numerous DV classes and nothing works, he is a time bomb just waiting to explode, just approach him and you will see the fire in his eyes, I’ve known Kevin for 15 years. He’s a violent man. Just ask his two kids, he was a punk at the rodeo this year with all his buddies by his side even tho he was fired. Good ol boys my ass
    Ps: he was graham hills brother in law, Kevin beat up grahms sister and still became a cop

    • So many punk cops with bad attitudes. At least this POS got caught.

      • caught and slapped on wrist. i cant believe that ex wife and witness would agree on such an easy punishment. pull a gun on me and abuse your kids, oh hell no! wtf were they thinking

  • Hasn’t he been arrested for this counseling I’m sure won’t work.hes a hot Father was a wife and child beater and if never stopped till he stabbed her and myself,so this is bullshit.JAIL
