RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- Former Reno Police Sergeant Jim Stegmaier has been ordered by a judge to stay away from his ex-girlfriend and Reno City Hall, as well as surrender his guns until February of next year.

The judge granted a new restraining order against Stegmaier following claims that he harassed and stalked his former girlfriend. The judge also ordered Stegmaier to get rid of any guns that he owns. Stegmaier told News 4 that he is complying with that order by turning his guns over to a family member. He wouldn't tell us how many he has.

Stegmaier resigned from the Reno Police Department after he was accused of pointing his guns at other officers while on duty.

Stegmaier has demonstrated a distinct lack of character and moral turpitude for many years. I am not a cop hater, quite the opposite. If JS is currently "paying his dues", he still has a huge deficit. It's newsworthy because when he turned on his buddy, Deputy Chief Dave Evans, a lot of information could no longer be buried in IA or the hallways of the station. JS and DA apparently thought they were untouchable. Glad to know the department is rid of at least two who drug their badges through the mud. They give all the other wonderful men and women a bad public image.

"Speed", Just like you, I look to Police officers as the men and women who can be counted on to do the right thing,to show by example the benefits of honesty,integrity and a good set of values. However, when it comes to personal "matters of the heart" NONE of us are immune from losing control and doing something we could regret later. All I am saying is in these issues a cop should be treated JUST like any other person. No favorable treatment but also NO roasting on a spit of public "cop hater" opinion (which is usually done). Why is this newsworthy? If it was an office clerk, a construction worker or a waitress, this news story wouldn't exist. This is the RJG roasting Stegmaier on the spit of public opinion. Leave him alone, he is paying his dues.

See-the thing is,when a Police officer takes the job,he IS,or SHOULD BE held to a higher standard than others. Sometimes it isn't fair,and I'm sure it's never easy,but that's how it plays out. People should be able to look to Police officers as the men and women who can be counted on to do the right thing,to show by example the benefits of honesty,integrity and a good set of values. At least that's how it was-apparently now A Police officer doesn't have to be a better grade of person than any other schmoe on the street. This must be "Progress".

Cops are NO different and anyone else. They are human and just as suseptible to the romantic conflicts and stresses that everyone in the human race faces. He was a professional and did his job to serve the community the best he could. His "fall from grace" is no greater or different that your next door neighbor who might be an office clerk, or construction worker or waitress.
