MIDLAND, Texas — An embarrassed Sheriff Gary Painter fired one Midland County deputy and suspended three others without pay after a scantily dressed waitress holding a rifle posed for photographs on the hood of a patrol vehicle. Round Rock officers were dispatched to the restaurant after someone reported the waitress with the weapon, which had been given to her by one of the deputies who had been attending a training session near Austin. The incident occurred last week in the parking lot of a Twin Peaks restaurant, which promotes its “fun, friendly and sometimes flirty atmosphere!” The deputies told Painter that they had about three to five beers each. A fifth deputy who remained inside the eatery got a letter of reprimand. SOURCE: HuffingtonPost.com.
Really now? Is this what will actually get a cop fired and three others suspended without pay? Hmmm… good to know! Because my dumb azz was thinking that it might be I don’t know, let’s say… shooting a teenager in the back of the head while the kid was faced down and handcuffed. *Cop says to the public, “but I felt threatened* Or maybe tasering a grandmother, *Cop says to the public, “but I felt threatened* or may something like… shooting a man 56 times, *Cop says to the public, “but I felt threatened* or perhaps slamming an 87 year old woman to the asphalt who has alzheimers causing a serious head injury as her blood laid on the ground *Cop says to the public, “but I felt threatened*. And let’s not forget choking an EMT driver while in route to the hospital with a sick patient *Cop says to the public, “but I felt threatened*. It’s good to know that these are not the things to put our officers in check and begin to clean up this very corrupt system. Scantily attired chick sitting on a squad car with one of their firearms and their asses are outta’ there. Really fucking good to know!!!!
