I love the new training they give these guys. My brother was a sheriff deputy who died in the line of duty and officers like this guy bring shame to all of you because if it wasn't for the camera i wouldn't be typing this comment right now!!!!!!

I reviewed the tape of the officer assaulting the 15yo girl. Yes a 15yo can be annoying and yes she did commit a crime. The sheriff should immediately fired and his pension taken away. Obvioulsy, he is not in the habit of his actions being videotaped as his past brutalities have gone unpunished.

All I can say to this officer is "Smile you are on Candid Camera!"

The man is a Bully. Bullies will try to get jobs where they are in a position of authority and they will use that cover to abuse their authority upon others that are less well position. Usually, most police departments will try and filter out these B#stards but, a number of them get through the screening. This should be a hands down firing offense especially, with his previously suspected behavior.

I am a retired State Police Captain with the Delaware State Police with 35 years of service. King County has a severe problem in lack of training,supervision etc..From a few cases I have seen it make me very angry that in the law enforcement community we have these type of thugs in uniform.Many of the King County Deputies would have NEVER made it as a State trooper.
