The New Hampshire Police Commissioner who aided the duck killing State Representative has resigned

February 7, 2014

 America’s Watchtower has been covering the story of State Representative David Campbell and his duck killing controversy. David Campbell ran over some ducks in the parking lot of a Nashua hotel horrifying guests who were outside feeding the ducks at the time.

  Witnesses said that it appeared as if David Campbell was intoxicated at the time, however a field sobriety check was never performed because before the police could arrive Nashua Police Commissioner, and lawyer,  Thomas Pappas came to his aid after receiving a call from David Campbell. He brought David Campbell inside and informed the police department that he would bring him in for questioning in the morning, presumably after he slept it off.

  Naturally the Nashua Police Department said that there was nothing wrong with this:

“The fact that Mr. Campbell was a state representative, and that he reached out to an attorney/friend who happened to be a police commissioner, had no bearing or influence whatsoever into our responsibility to look into this matter.”

  Of course they didn’t think this was an issue. It is kind of like the IRS investigating itself over the targeting scandal, or the Injustice Department investigating itself over Fast and Furious, the results must be taken with a grain of salt.

  Today it was learned that Police Commissioner Thomas Pappas has tendered his resignation for his role in the incident.

A police commissioner resigned from his position after he assisted a New Hampshire state representative who ran over and killed several ducks in December.

Nashua Police Commissioner Tom Pappas wrote a letter to Gov. Maggie Hassan citing that he regrets his role in the incident, WMUR reported.

“I deeply regret my part in the events of December 23, 2013, and apologize to you, the Nashua Police Department and the public for the disruption that has occurred as a consequence of them,” Pappas wrote in the letter, according to WMUR.

  This of course was necessary for how can a Police Commissioner who apparently helped a friend cover-up a crime be trusted to uphold the law going forward?  He has lost the trust of the people and today he did the right thing.

  This is a step in the right direction but it is still to be determined if Thomas Pappas has committed a crime, and it seems to me on the surface that he has, and the State Attorney General has released a statement saying they are investigating the case to determine whether or not to bring charges against Thomas Pappas.

      Thank you.

        You’re welcome.
        Kind of what we discussed. There was a working relationship that caused what was believed to be obligations, and it came back to bite him in the ass.

        And hopefully it will bite him again im the form of criminal charges.

        That will result in a “deal” of “all forgiven” when he threw his papers in. When it’s politics involved, the path has to be cleared for future cooperation or it would cause some political enemies and grief all around for everyone. He covered, and the butter on the slice of bread will be done. Plus extra goodies. Paid to end of contract, vacation to end of contract. sick days, terminal leave, uniform allowance, longevity increase compounded, built in overtime, compounded, retirement benefits paid five years in advance, paid holidays to end of contract, retirement bonus. Did I miss anything?

        Sadly you are right, now that he has resigned this will likely be swept under the rug. And no, I don’t think you missed anything.

    Surprised Campbell hasn’t sued the dead ducks for impeding the progress of an elected state official.
