Your discretion is advised when people talk about cops and local officers, they like to think of polite, hardworking men and women who care about the well being of everyone in the society they serve and protect those who need it, and they always act with utmost kindness whenever they perform their line of duty.
Unfortunately, just because someone is an officer of the law doesn’t guarantee they’re a good person. It’s a reality and sadly, exists in most, if not all, occupations. There are nice guys and girls, and there are some who are not so nice.
Matthew Luckhurst of the San Antonio Police Department is certainly one of the latter. He was fired from the service in 2016 for giving a poop sandwich to a homeless man. A CCTV camera along an alley captured the disgusting incident washan pick up some dog poop, place it onto a piece of bread before placing the sandwich in a Styrofoam container of a half eaten meal provided by a local religious group for homeless people in San Antonio.
Matthew Luckhurst placed it next to a sleeping homeless man who would then wake up and probably pick up the container, looking at the contents and then eat them. No one knew what Matthew was thinking and doing such a horrendous thing, but there’s definitely no acceptable reason as to why someone would do something like that.
The incident became viral shortly after it was posted online, and members of the public did not hold back in their criticism of the officer, giving him a torrent of negative comments and hate online. Surprisingly, Matthew luckers managed to somehow keep his job over a technicality.
The officer was reinstated to his position after date discrepancy led an arbitrator to overturn his dismissal, enabling him to get off on a technicality, arguing that the incident fell outside the window for allowing him to be indefinitely suspended.
An arbitrator agreed with his appeal. The indefinite suspension was overturned due to the violation of the 180 days prohibition, the arbitrator wrote in his decision based on the rule that Matthew Luckhurst discipline fell outside of the time limit on penalizing his behavior.
The arbitrator noted that while the suspension was overturned, the penalty was reasonable based on just cause for Matthew luxury’s action, whether intentional or grossly inappropriate. Regarding the fecal sandwich being placed in a container close to a homeless person.
Matthew Luckhurst was notified of his dismissal on October 28 of that year, which fell within the 180 day window. If the incident happened in May as originally believed, but the officer reviewed his medical records that would challenge the assumption. According to the records, the officer had suffered an injury during a martial arts class that left him on light duty between April 6 and June 14, 2016 and would not have been able to ride his bicycle in Maine.
Witness and hearsay testimony in the record also provided vague or contradictory dates regarding the incident. There was no body Cam or video footage to corroborate the date and authorities were unable to identify or locate the homeless man reference.
His suspension was reduced to five days by the arbitrator for another incident where he failed to arrest another homeless person who had a warrant. While he won this particular case, the former officer has yet another poop related claim he needs to address. It seemed he did not learn his lesson.
Matthew Lockers was given a second indefinite suspension in December of 2016 over an allegation that he and another male officer had defecated in a toilet assigned to women in the bike patrol office and intentionally left it unflushed. This time he wasn’t able to find his way out.
Former officer Lockers may have gone away with his disgusting acts once but he certainly wasn’t lucky the second time around. Justice was finally served to this man.
