The Veterans In Politics International filed an Ethics Complaint against former Clark County District Attorney David Roger

Roger has violated the public’s trust

Clark County Nevada, There has been dozens of police shootings by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officers. There have been 12 fatal shootings by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officers in 2011.

The Clark County District Attorney’s Office investigates officer involved shootings and they also provide evidence to the Coroner’s Inquest procedures.

The Clark County District Attorney David Roger has been involved in negotiations with the Police Protective Association (PPA) for months to be their General Counsel, while his office investigates police involved shootings. To spell it out as a District Attorney one of the responsibilities is to investigate police shootings and now David Roger is taking a job that is directly opposite of this. This alludes to the idea that unethical practices have been in place throughout.

Roger announced his resignation on November 1, 2011 sighting family was the reason and indicated he had an offer from the PPA.  Roger officially resigned on January 3, 2012 and on January 5, 2012 he accepted the position of General Counsel for the PPA.

Roger has violated the public trust and has broken the following Nevada Revised Statues:

 

NRS 281A.020  Legislative findings and declarations.

      1.  It is hereby declared to be the public policy of this State that:

      (a) A public office is a public trust and shall be held for the sole benefit of the people.

      (b) A public officer or employee must commit himself or herself to avoid conflicts between the private interests of the public officer or employee and those of the general public whom the public officer or employee serves.

2.  The Legislature finds and declares that:

      (a) The increasing complexity of state and local government, more and more closely related to private life and enterprise, enlarges the potentiality for conflict of interests.

      (b) To enhance the people’s faith in the integrity and impartiality of public officers and employees, adequate guidelines are required to show the appropriate separation between the roles of persons who are both public servants and private citizens.

 

NRS 281A.170  “Willful violation” defined.  “Willful violation” means a violation where the public officer or employee:

      1.  Acted intentionally and knowingly; or

      2.  Was in a situation where this chapter imposed a duty to act and the public officer or employee intentionally and knowingly failed to act in the manner required by this chapter.

 

There is a major conflict of interest on the part of David Roger investigating police shootings and negotiating for a job as their General Counsel.
