I was so appalled by this officers behaviour, that I had to put keyboard to screen and send the Arizona Police Dept a mail as to my thoughts, i will
post it here for you to see, i am sure it will just get tossed in the bin, but hey I tried. I wonder if i will now appear on a list somewhere even
though i am not from America?.
I am not from America, and this is the first time i have ever felt the need to put keyboard to screen as it were.
I Wanted your management to know that it is appalling that one of your so called police officers(Peace officers) can treat a vulnerable young girl in
such a way, Clearly the girl presents no threat to him and is walking away from the situation, so he may have told her to stop a couple of times, and
she may have ignored him, knowing she was drunk, this should have registered in your officers tiny brain that she would not be acting normally. So
instead of being a peace keeper he takes on the role of being a bully and a law breaker.
How can you contemplate keeping this excuse of a man employed as an officer with your dept.? I see he is a 6.5 year veteran of the service, clearly he
believes the girl to be trash, and decides to throw her to the sidewalk(no doubt where he thinks trash belongs) if in his estimation everyone is scum,
then quite clearly he needs to go and take a job of which he is more suited, a few good options may be 1. Mugger 2. Robber 3. violent street attacker
for whatever reason.
Sarcasm aside, you give this man a badge and allow him to carry a gun? i think a psychological evaluation needs to be done here as a matter of
I have a relation here in England who is in the police force, and he is a credit, he uses his intelligence to control the situation, and treats people
as he finds them, he is what i would call a true peace officer, and firm when he needs to be in other words, he changes his approach to whatever
situation he is in.
I understand that sometimes situations can and do get out of hand, however clearly this (and i use the term loosely) officer was way out of line, i
trust that he is going to face criminal charges on a level with the seriousness of the assault that he committed?
The other part i found hard to believe is that no one appeared to question why the officer did that to her at the scene, his partner did not appear to
say a word and it appeared to be accepted that this was a normal reaction , the citizens did not appear to have a problem with it either(or perhaps
they were scared of being shot if they opened their mouths)to my mind his partner is just as guilty, his duty was to step in and protect the girl. As
i understand it an officers duty is to protect the citizens of your country, not knock them out by bashing their heads against a brick wall.
Now i wish you to understand me clearly here, i have the utmost respect for the officers on your force that do there jobs day in and day out with
utter devotion and who try to make some difference in the local community in a positive way, and follow the remit of the job. i.e upholding the law, I
think it would be more fitting for this officer to have a swastika for a badge rather than a police badge.
I understand that the police are not social workers, but even to my untrained eye, the girl is drunk and no threat to someone of his size, i am sure
your officer that deals with these incidents day in and day out should have had a lot better judgement than to do what he did, he could have quite
easily killed her,He is what 6 feet tall and 15-16 stone, each time i watch this video, it makes me more angry. what if this had been your
Finally, this officer is a representative of your city, i personally have posted this as my facebook profile to my friends, and i know some of them
have done the same to there friends, I am sure i am not the only person to have done this in the world, what message does this send to the world about
your city and your police dept? i know it makes me not want to visit.
I truly hope that whatever investigation you carry out that it is done with complete openness and said Patrick Larson is punished accordingly, he is
an embarrassment to your police dept, as is the officer that stood by and watched. You are accountable to the people of your city here.
