Since police and court records are a matter of public record they can and are reported by the media. In this instance, had the media not reported this incident, the public would have cried that the involved police agencies were trying to protect "one of their own". All of that being said, it is sad that anyone going through personal issues has to have them publicly aired. Hopefully, Mr. Bush, with the support of his family and friends, will get help, heal and live a good life.

Taxedenough let me tell you a thing or two. bush is full of hate. have u been harassed or arrested by him. No. all of the personal issues he was having at home he would take out on the community of Jamestown. Ive asked other cops whats this guys problem and they would Say " file a complaint with the Lt." if u were ever harassed by him or any other cop on multiple occasions u would feel the same way I do. I'm not a coward I'm just a happy man. He has pulled me over at least 9 times for no reason and searched me and my car. I've had the same federal job for 13 years. I never once got a ticket. I told mike this the last time he pulled me over "karma is like a rubber band it can only stretch so far before it comes back and smacks you in the face" ... he laughed when I told him that. Well guess Who's laughing now. Me and all the people her harassed. Mike-" what goes around comes around lol. the seed you plant is what you'll get in return. start treating others how

just because he's a police officer doesn't mean that he's not subject to the same policy & public scrutiny as any other man or women.

also, just because he's a police officer doesn't mean he is not entitled to be innocent until proven guilty & to be human. he should be allowed the same compassion as you & i would hope to have when under immense amount of personal pressure.

i understand he's a police officer but he might also be a father, a son, a brother, a neighbor. just sayin.

justicefubu what kind of a coward does it take to post something so ignorant and full of hate as what you did? This man has some personal issues that he was dealing with and should be given the same privacy and respect that any of us deserve, but a low life coward like you is going to hide behind a veil of anonymity and throw baseless accusations and lies? I would much rather have someone like Bush as a neighbor, even with his emotional problems, than I would a low life coward such as yourself. Absolutely disgusting to see what we have living in our community.

This is the most racist cop In Chaut co. I'm glad he got arrested and I hope he resigns soon. He has done a lot of dirty things to people. And when u do wrong you get wrong in return. I'm so happy. And I hope someone was sleeping with his wife. That way he would know how it feels to have someone your suppose trust do you wrong. Mike you got what u deserved and I'm glad. Now call ex officer smeraldo for some advice on what fired cops do with there life. You loser. This man has harassed me and ruined my good. I'm glad he's done. I don't have to worry about him anymore

The headline could have read, New York's new Safe law claims first incident for mental illness... Thanks Gov Cuomo for taking one more "bad guy" (sarcastic voice) off the streets...

Unfortunately, this guy has many issues, in his life that we all no nothing about. The fact that he is a police officer is irrelevant. He is also a human. Also, the gun has nothing to do with anything. He could have used a knife or just about anything else to do himself harm. I hope he gets the help he needs.

There is no way in*****that this began at a 3 hour standoff. This has been going on for years. It just has never been acknowledged or addressed. Similar to Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner, James Holmes, Dylan Klebold, Eric Harris, etc, his problems have been ignored. Not one person has tried to help him. Now everyone is shocked and confused. I'm sorry but America's biggest downfall is the American ego. We all have problems, but some people have serious ones. Why don't people actually look out for each other? Because we all have been taught to "see the good" in someone, optimism is a killer. Let's take a walk with reality for a few.

Sorry guys...he may have been going through alot, but when you have a 3 hour standoff with police..you should expect it to make the news. Thats common sense and life.

What would the NRA say? Clearly a mental issue, and clearly has access to guns. Should all police have armed guards watching them now?

Ok he messed up who's life was he threatening? His own! He obviously needs help. remove all the guns from his possesion get him help!!! You know this is the kind of thing that is a precurser to a real bad incident. ITS NOT THE FACT A COP DID BAD! ITS THE FACT THAT SOMEONE WHO IS HAVEING MENTAL ISSUES. The JPD being his employer and sticking their nose in his business is responsible for this man now!!!!!!!!!

Do you all realize that if this had been you or I we would have been charged with a lot more. The swat team was there along with approx 8 cops now that sounds like my tax dollars being spent. Not to mention this happened during his kids birthday party and he should have been charged with endangering. I understand he needs help but the PJ reporting it is their journalistic duty and our right to hear how our tax dollars are working.

Guilty until proven innocent. I love how the media ruins our judicial process and embarasses people during their lowest and most private moments. Shame on you JPD and the PJ for reporting on this.

Really?? Was this necessary to report on? I find it incredibly disheartening that this man clearly is dealing with some things and rather than offering the support he deserved he is made out to be some sort of a criminal. This is ridiculous and hardly "breaking news". Is this the message we are sending to those in need of help? We have no idea what he is going through and should be embarrassed to so quickly make public his personal struggles. This is not news...I would have hoped more would have been done for someone who "protects and serves"
