Trigger Happy Cop
We’ve probably all heard about the Buena Park, CA off-duty policeman who threatened a shopper with a gun because he (wrongly) suspected the man of - gasp - having stolen a packet of mints.
The Buena Park PD seem pretty sorry about the whole thing, but the incident is sadly indicative of a prevalent style of policing in this country - coercive, violent, and punitive.
Write or telephone the Buena Park Police Department to complain about the officer’s behavior. The Police Chief is Corey S. Sianez if you wish to write to him personally.
