Police Suspensions

Remember the big stink regarding the mass arrest of people loitering around Westheimer parking lots in Houston last week? Well, the police captain in charge has been suspended and 12 others relieved of their duties.

Houston’s police chief is running for cover too, stammering he knew nothing about the officer’s plans.

The fact of the matter is that it was a stupid career move to arrest all of those people. Anyone should be able to see that. But nobody got roughed up, apparently, and a large number of those arrested very likely needed to be rousted before trouble broke out. Let’s move on.
