    repost? i searched :o



    MIDLAND, Texas — An embarrassed Sheriff Gary Painter fired one Midland County deputy and suspended three others without pay after a scantily dressed waitress holding a rifle posed for photographs on the hood of a patrol vehicle.

    Round Rock officers were dispatched to the restaurant after someone reported the waitress with the weapon, which had been given to her by one of the deputies who had been attending a training session near Austin.

    The incident occurred last week in the parking lot of a Twin Peaks restaurant, which promotes its "fun, friendly and sometimes flirty atmosphere!"

    The deputies told Painter that they had about three to five beers each.

    A fifth deputy who remained inside the eatery got a letter of reprimand.

    Since he got suspended for it, hopefully he got to fuck her.

    She must be a ticket, because she has FINE written all over her.

    Lies. She's clearly on the trunk, not the hood.

    I've done similar stuff training or at "choir practice" after roundups, but photo documentation and interaction with the public should be avoided

    I wouldn't expect any different..... but like you said, discretion I would think would be required. Wonder if they were still in uniform.

    The chick's nametag says "Bambi". :rofl: God, can you imagine the irony if she'd accidentally been shot?

    On a more serious note, I think she has a future doing ads in Soldier of Fortune magazine.

    if you read the article there were numberous officers involved. one got a letter of reprimand, one was fired, and a couple were suspended without pay.

    I know, but the article makes mention of a "series of photographs" so I'm guessing there's more.:x:

    Maybe fired for drinking while out in a patrol car, but not for the waitress thing. That's just dumb.

    I'm pretty sure the problem wasn't taking pictures of the waitress, it was willfully rendering a firearm to a civilian. People get their pictures taken with cops all the time, but you never give someone your gun even as a prop.

    Reminds me of the Corvallis PD guys who went to a complaint of a loud party. Ended up being a "PJ" party with a lot of college girls in lingerie. Girls swarmed the cops to take pictures, agreed to quiet down, and the cops left. A few weeks later someone sees the pics on Facebook and it all blows up, cops get reprimanded, city is pissed. Retards are writing into the paper daily. But, those guys kept their jobs and have one hell of a story to tell.

    I agree, sounds like it had to do with them letting people handle their rifles...NOT their guns....

    Yeah, I remember those photos, blown out of proportion in my opinion.
