Witness with horror the psychological maturity of the mental deficients who think they have a right to use violence against strangers. You'll be glad to know they're not firing this degenerate outright, instead they're giving her a paid vacation while they "investigate."
The AP reports:
DALLAS — A Dallas police officer has been placed on paid administrative leave after bragging on Facebook that she cut a hospital worker's face by throwing a boot at him during a dispute, one of several inflammatory posts by the six-year veteran. [...]These are your so-called "protectors."
...The Dallas Morning News reported that Lafitte posted a picture of a small black boy surrounded by officers with the comment, "Quick . . . sprinkle some crack on him!" That item had apparently been removed Friday. [...]
The 32-year-old officer also has posts disparaging homeless people, including a description of herself as an "Official Bum Roller," a police term for dealing with the homeless. [...]
Five days after the Feb. 9 incident at a hospital in suburban Plano, Lafitte posted that an employee "wanted to tackle me because I was cussin out my Lieutenant on the phone."
"I threw my boot at him, Jerry Springer style, and nailed him in the face," Lafitte wrote. "It broke his glasses and cut his face and bruised it up real good."
According to a police report, the incident started when Lafitte began to scream and curse while on the phone with a supervisor. A paramedic told police that she attacked him when he tried to calm her down and tell her security was on the way.
