From Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage --
Some Alaskans see this guy on TV more often than they see their own parents. His name has appeared in nearly 600 Daily News stories since 2008 -- Sarah Palin territory. One time he Tasered a bear.
Omnipresent Anchorage police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said Friday he’s retiring at the end of the year. “I put in my papers today,” he said.
Parker is an ordained preacher and, unlike spokespeople at many police departments, a badge-carrying cop. His last day will be Dec. 31.
If I worked at a local TV station, I’d be piecing that blooper reel together now.
As you all should know Parker helped sweep Todd's involvement with the hooker ring under the rug. He had a hand in harassing Shailey Tripp who has spoken out against the Palins.
Now with Sean Parnell turning up the heat on sex trafficking in Alaska, Parker must have decided to bail out now.
