Los Alamos County has agreed to a $600,000 settlement with a former police officer who claimed in a federal lawsuit that he was involuntarily locked up in a mental institution through the December 2012 holidays.

John Schamber resigned from the force this week, according to his attorney, John Day, and has moved with his wife to another state to “rebuild his life.”

    Again police officers shown in a bad light. Absolute power corrupts absolutely glad Foster was fired. Maybe these lousy cops will start to learn some respect but I doubt it!
