Glad the correct decision was made regarding the officer. They're waiting to file a lawsuit? They're probably better people than me, but I'd have already done that.
It's unfortunate but it seems the only checks and balances we have are video tape and lawsuits. The only thing that enacts change in this country is if you take money away from someone.
He deserved firing. So did his Lieutenant, who was only downgraded in rank. Respondeat superior. I think the Lt. should have punished at least as seriously as the officer, who did, after all, only follow the Lt's. orders.
Sue, Alex, sue.
Not sure the original source but I read a tweet today about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. "He didn't get fired because he was a sexual predator. He got fired because we found out."
I think a similar statement might be made here. He didn't get fired for manhandling a nurse, he got fired because the public found out.
