LARGO – A Pinellas County detention deputy has been suspended for using the sound of his stun gun to try and wake up an inmate.
According to an internal affairs report, Deputy Michael Kenefic thought the crackling sound of his Taser would rouse inmate Robert McAllister on July 27. It did not.
McAllister had fallen asleep at on the floor of the jail’s intake section.
Kenefic, a three-year veteran of the agency, received a 15-day suspension. His punishment also includes a charge of misconduct for falsifying a report.
The falsifyiing of a reports by policemen have always bothered me. If they are willing to lie in that particular part of their work, they have no business being in law enforcement. Police should be held to a very high standard.
Pinellas County detention deputy Michael Kenefic doesn’t just get a fifteen day suspension, but is also today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
