MILITARY POLICE COMMAND SERGEANT MAJOR

"He ought to be held to a higher standard. A staff sergeant would get slammed for D.U.I. Will this guy?" asked one of our readers at Ft. Meade in Maryland.
The MCC fan has a good point.
CSM Kurtis Timmer should be required to maintain a higher standard of conduct than say, a young PFC just off the farm, tasting his first hard liquor and stupidly getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
We all know the low-ranking G.I. would have been slammed. So would an E-6, or sergeant first class. It's when you get into the top NCO ranks of E-8 and E-9, that things get sticky.
Remember that saying: "Different spanks for different ranks?"
TOP MILITARY POLICE NCO
Timmer, being a career MP, makes it all the more obvious, something more than a slap-on-the-wrist is needed here.
Fortunately, no one was killed or injured when New Jersey State Police pulled over the top enlisted man in the 200th Military Police Command at Meade as he barreled down the highway in Southampton Township, not far from Ft. Dix..
He was driving "erratically" said the police report. It also noted the 36-year Army veteran "refused a breathalyzer test."
Timmer may have powerful pals in high places, but we think an example should be made here. It's time for the CSM to put in his retirement papers. We're sure all the soldiers Timmer busted for D.U.I. during his long MP career would agree with us on that one.
