He'll be punished with two weeks of paid suspension.  That will teach him.

He'll need to start carrying cash to the massage parlors.

Banned from serving in any position in which he may carry a weapon... that would be best.

That was my question - "Removed from duty" as in paid admin leave, or "Removed from duty" as in fired?  Because I gotta say - if one of my employees said "Go fark yourself" to a member of the public while on the job, I'd can them so fast their head would spin.

Or, y'know, arrested like I would be if I threatened to farking kill him.  I mean, I'm not holding my breath, but still.

Now I know you're crazy.... a cop arrested for doing something while on the job?  That's insane!

There's nothing really wrong with paid leave as long as it's followed up by proper investigation and discipline.  It's not (supposed to be) the punishment.  It's the getting of someone out of a position to do more bad things until you know for sure if he did bad things.  I'm a fan of it, as long as it's done right.  Whether or not it's usually done right, I dunno.

I can't say I have a bunch of confidence in this group do manage ANYTHING, at the moment.

It does happen.  Sometimes.  In some places.  But yeah, I wouldn't EXPECT it to happen.

THIS.

at the worst, he will be "Let go" and move to a new town, where he will get a job with another department, and carry on like nothing happened.
 
2014-08-20 05:34:20 PM  
Also, if Officer GFY has been relieved of duty, someone should know Officer GFY's name.  Has that been noted anywhere?

He'll be a police chief in Alabama by the end of the week.
 
2014-08-20 05:39:04 PM  
I still want to know what his bond was to get out of jail.
 
2014-08-20 05:39:21 PM  
Know what? Fark that guy. I hope his punk ass ends up in a jail with people he has arrested. 
Big man with a gun. Pansy.

/not all cops are bad, but this guy sure is.
 
2014-08-20 05:40:17 PM  
Because last I saw, "...under color of law" was still a thing.

He should have been removed from duty just for pointing a gun at innocent people.

But cops have a dangerous and stressful job!  They get up every day to protect us and just want to go home to see their kids at the end of their shift!  Why do you hate America's heroes!  MUH FEELINGS!
 
2014-08-20 06:41:21 PM  
The response by the journalists was hilarious..
 
2014-08-20 06:49:26 PM  
I'm thinking the entire police force should be removed from duty in Ferguson. They really ought to dismiss them all and start over. The whole situation is so poisoned that they simply cannot continue once this is resolved.

The entire country needs to hit the reset button on how the PD's handle shiat. These "few bad apples" only continue to pop up because they constantly get away with it.  And it starts and ends with the Unions strong-arming everyone.  I can't imagine and rational police chief wants a hot head asshole like that on their force.

I think we need something like the Lawyers Bar for Officers. First, you have to qualify at a level that permits you to work within the state as an officer, and then if you are found to have failed your duty  to a criminal level, you will no longer be allowed to be an officer in that state, and other states are allowed to deny you the right to test to be an officer for their state.
 
2014-08-20 07:09:54 PM  
He'll get over it.

They must be getting paid six figures.  If they were getting paid what other non-college jobs are paid, they all would have quit before now.

Walker: Officer Go F*ck Yourself just threatened to kill me.


why the hell is he pointing his gun at those people like that?
 
2014-08-20 07:17:48 PM  
Did they address a backhanded statement to the protesters when they suspended him, or did they actually do something correctly for once and keep this quiet?
 
2014-08-20 07:20:18 PM  
Meh; talk to his union rep. He'll probably get a promotion and a farking medal.
 
2014-08-20 07:20:48 PM  
Can we get a link to an actual article instead of a video link?
 
2014-08-20 07:21:03 PM  
That cop needs to get a job at the Post Office.  They are big on customer service there and can help channel his anger.
 
2014-08-20 07:23:07 PM  

BalugaJoe: He should join Islamic State police force.


That wouldn't work.  Those guys have a thing about pigs.

2014-08-20 07:24:44 PM  
Wow, that is awesome. Who cares if it's all for show and nothing really happens to his badge.

The guys with the cameras got a guy with a gun who usually has all the power, taken off the front lines. Sure he won't learn a real lesson, but if it grinds his gears and he gets made fun of by fellow nutbag officers for being taken out by 'thugs armed with phones', then I can live with it.
 
2014-08-20 07:24:49 PM  
Is it against the law to threaten someone with a gun and specifically say you're going to kill them?

Getting fired isn't enough. He should be arrested
 
2014-08-20 07:24:54 PM  
By "removed" you mean "transferred to another department with a promotion after a two-week vacation".
 
2014-08-20 07:26:50 PM  
And I'm sure he'll be arrested in 3.. 2.. 1.. never.
 
2014-08-20 07:27:45 PM  
He has proven he can keep a cool head under stressful situations.

\Officer Go f**k yourself gets to keep his job?
 
2014-08-20 07:28:23 PM  
What about officer 'Bring it you Fing animals'?
 
2014-08-20 07:28:42 PM  
Supposedly, this whole situation started, because a cop lost his temper and got violently aggressive with someone he met on the street.

Bozos like this guy are only serving as an example of how possible that is.
 
2014-08-20 07:29:18 PM  
In his defense, he is burdened with an awkward family name.

What about the...

white mayor; a school board with six white members and one Hispanic, which recently suspended a highly regarded young black superintendent who then resigned; a City Council with just one black member...

That might explain why Ferguson PD is only 6% black while Ferguson is majority black.
 
2014-08-20 07:30:42 PM  
Although it's okay to do that if it's a Super Soaker filled with tequila.
 
2014-08-20 07:31:05 PM  
The protesters were being really obnoxious... but as a cop you can't talk to people like that. Shouldn't they get training to redirect people and not take shiat personally?
 
2014-08-20 07:31:07 PM  
Might wanna add a NSFW language to that. I watched that during the live stream, so I knew what was coming. Waited for the kiddo to go inside to watch the video.

Just another trained officer of the law deescalating the situation,  nothing to see here, move along.
 
2014-08-20 07:33:46 PM  
At this point does anyone think FPD hasn't been trying to escalate the situation to paint the black community as irrational?

That 6% figure is familiar to me...
