SRO Appeals Firing for Flashing Speedo
June 06, 2012
A school resource officer with the Provo (Utah) Police Department has appealed his department's decision to fire him for flashing a green speedo and dancing suggestively at a school secretary's birthday party.
Cody Harris was dismissed last month.
"He was supposed to be a frog," said Robert Gentry, interim superintendent at the district, told the Associated Press. "We feel like he was a very good resource officer and did an outstanding job. He interacted very well with the students. This was just so out of character."

A guy in my academy class got fired a week before graduation for a stunt like this in a public bar... Only he wasn't wearing a speedo.

It depends on where this took place. If this was at a party held at the school or a party that was a 'come one, come all' type then yes, he should be fired. If this was a private party at this teachers home then no, as this is a 'private' affair. Either way the Officer used poor judgement.
