Police Officer Fired

In Austin, Texas, the AP reports a police officer has been fired for taping the mouth of a belligerent teenage suspect shut. The suspect was asked repeatedly to “please be quiet”; after he continued his behavior, the officer taped his mouth shut.

Sounds like something the boy’s parents should have done long ago. In true modern form, the parents elected to file a complaint against the officer instead. One doubts this was after a thorough examination of the facts of their son’s actions
