The brass is way outta if she had said your gonna get boy....then they would have some grounds for disaplinary action. Just referring to a younger person as boy is over reaction at its worst.

Agree over reaction. Seems like the brass just dont want heat from the media

It wasn't even racial. It was like saying "oh boy". People are way too sensitive.

I don't necessarily think this was an overreaction. I also do not think that the term, "boy" was the only reason disciplinary action was taken.

The officer laughed after nearly striking the suspect, and things she said to the man also reflected her more of a street gangster than a police officer. I support the blues all the way, I always have. However, in this incident I have to agree with the brass.

They felt that the way that her behavior was detrimental to the image of the department, and the idea of a model police officer. I don't always agree with 'em, but in this case I do.

I expect this from media and others who don't have a clue about police work, but not from the brass.
