It certainly doesn't sound good

My county police have a Twitter feed now and they linked to this story in the New York Times. It's about a police officer who said some things online that came back to haunt him when a defense attorney dug them up. Here's a quote:

Then Mr. Lesher tracked down comments Officer Ettienne had made on the Internet about video clips of arrests. An officer should not have punched a handcuffed man, Officer Ettienne wrote. “If he wanted to tune him up some, he should have delayed cuffing him.”

He added: “If you were going to hit a cuffed suspect, at least get your money’s worth ’cause now he’s going to get disciplined for” a relatively light punch.

Words fail me.

Hi Georgiana lee, Not a comment for you post,but only way I could see to contact you. Been following you on twitter. Your horse picture & bio caught my attention. We have 3 wonderful horses. Read your tweet on the fire & wanted to drop you a direct message but realized you were not following me. From one horse lover to another just wanted to say we are glad all is well. Take good care, Judi Heimpel(Qivana) on twitter.
