That cop is a dick and he should be fired andb anned from law enforcement forl ife. He gives good cops everywhere a bad name.

He did get fired.

Dude needs anger management classes.

And I'd like to see his psych assessment. He seems questionable. He LOVES being the authority figure more than is healthy.

They suspended him *with pay*, but then the police commissioner stepped in and fired him.

Interesting bit at the end:

"What's most interesting in all of this, however, is that none of this would have happened if the incident hadn't been filmed and subsequently posted online. In fact, absolutely nothing did happen for many months until the video was posted online. Rather than causing problems, this video seems to have done exactly what many defenders of filming police have said all along: helped to display and call attention to abuse of power by the police, in a way that not only punishes those who did the abuse, but also which will alert other law enforcement officials to obey the limits of their profession. Judge Posner may regret that police can be filmed, but it certainly seems like a good way to keep police from engaging in the kind of harassment that they have been able to get away with for years."

Dave said if anonymous came looking for him to tell you he moved to Siberia. I think he doesn't want to talk to you.

Yeah, this is quite a few years old. I search his name every now and then to see if any further follow-up reporting is out there. There was another video of him being a dick for no reason to some other dude on the beach not breaking any laws. Pretty much power tripping.

Dahgts and I have both attempted to post the links to the columns.

The columns are up but apparently the To'pix website won't accept the links.

Bug peeps was offensive? I can't fathome how that would be offensive. And RACE is my friend - you don't need to slam the poor guy when he was simply asking a question in "layman's terms". Lighten up, Frances.

I was getting the offensive material warning when I tried posting the links. Figured they'd disappear. Ah well, columns are up though

Let's try to be a little nicer to our new posters. He's obviously the sensitive type and race was a bit out of line

Be nicer to our new posters? If they start out being nice, as several have ("Hi, folks, just wandering around this site, how are you all doing?"). But this one started out as an ass hat.
