It took almost a month, but the young punk cop who tasered a 76-year-old man for questioning his questionable traffic stop has finally been fired, the Victoria Advocate reports.

The cop, 23-year-old Nathanial Robinson suspected 76-year-old Pete Vasquez of driving a vehicle with expired tags. In fact, Vasquez was driving a new car, all of which are exempt from having fresh tags, which Vasquez pointed out at the time he was stopped. Rather than check the law, Robinson responded by violently attacking and tasing his elder, throwing him to the ground and tasing him twice before placing him under arrest.

While the police chief criticized Robinson's actions at the time and said they would investigate, no details nor follow up was released until just yesterday. Here's an excerpt from their press release, which you can read in full here:
Chief Craig has announced the findings of the internal affairs investigation regarding Officer Nathaniel Robinson. Chief Craig has determined based on the evidence, that Officer Robinson violated three areas of policy and sustained allegations regarding violations of the following departmental policies.

1) Policy 0.216 - Conduct and Performance, Section 2.15
2) Policy 03.03 - Use of Force Section 1
3) Policy 0.0305- Arrest without a Warrant Section 3

Based on the findings of the administrative investigation, Nathaniel Robinson?s employment with the Victoria Police Department has been terminated.
Kudos to the police chief for doing what's right, including for faulting the officer for his false arrest.

Frankly, I find it abhorrent the mere idea a 23-year-old young punk could think a badge and a gun gives him the right to boss around a 76-year-old man because he has "expired tags."

It reminds me of a story about the late Steve Jobs. Jobs would buy a new car every six months to take advantage of a California law which makes you exempt from having to have a license plate for six months. Ever since I heard that story, I've thought about how any young punk rookie cop could pull over the great Steve Jobs and potentially put him through hell for not having a license plate, despite being entirely in the wrong.

The late H. L. Mencken believed government as an institution was a conspiracy devised by inferior human beings to rule over their betters. As he wrote back in the year 1919,
"All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both."
As one who chronicles stories of government abuse, which is mostly carried out by low-grade morons such as officer Robinson, this strikes me as accurate.

Of course, in the case above, there's a good chance Robinson will be rehired, with back pay, once his moron protection agency, a.k.a. the police union, files an appeal to get him his job back.

Link 99170The firing is just for show to take some heat off the chief and the department and make it look like they are responding to the concerns of the citizens. I dare say the cop and the chief both know the union only has to flex its little pinky and he'll be back in the saddle with retro pay and probably a medal and a promotion.

Link 9815The Police Chief set a high standard. Salient article on the problem. Bad people with money, controlling lawmakers and steering policy to protect their standard of living through oppression of the masses.

Link 7141"Kudos to the police chief for doing what's right..."? WTF!! What's right is to file assault charges against the cop and sue the snot out of him personally. Don't leave it for the taxpayer to pick up the tab.AnonymousPosted: Jan 06 2015, 10:42 AM

Link 6950What planet did this chief come from? It surely isn't zionist earth ChrisPosted: Jan 06 2015, 10:49 AM

Link Hey Anon, he still may be brought up on charges, the case is being "reviewed" by the DA. I'm not holding my breath the DA will actually do anything. I agree the cop should be personally liable for his criminal actions just as any commoner would be. AnonymousPosted: Jan 06 2015, 11:28 AM

Link 76121Yeah i can hear the music for sure,kinda goes with his actions on the elderly,pray to god my kid's dont get a badge and a gun.AnonymousPosted: Jan 06 2015, 12:51 PM

Link 10832I'm all about being able to listen to the type of music you so choose,but we all know that different types of music can sometimes alter our moods. So if you are listening to music that promotes violence and lawlessness and are a cop that is already mentally unstable you clearly are gonna do what you want and hurt people for ridiculous reasons. He probably his ass kicked everyday he was in school till he graduated and went into law enforcement. Victoria is notorious for drug smugglers but he is and was too much of a whimp to deal with them he has to pick on elderly and kids I'm sureAnonymousPosted: Jan 06 2015, 2:34 PM

Link 173190As the young cop obviously recently went through his education and training process to be qualified as a cop, we must conclude the cop knew his legal limitations, and the citizen's civil rights. Whenever a cop willfully violates a citizen's civil rights, he is no longer protected by 'qualified immunity' and is exposed to be personally liable. Not that he has any assets accumulated this early in life, but no doubt he can be sued for a percentage of all his future income.TomPosted: Jan 06 2015, 3:43 PM

Link 6742One of the benefits of my proposal to require all police to carry individually-purchased professional liability insurance is that this young cop could not just go to another city and get hired again without this following him. His insurance company would raise his premium, just like a driver who has been at fault in an accident. His insurance company might even see this moron as too great a risk and refuse to insure him at any premium, which would end his career.PutschPosted: Jan 06 2015, 3:49 PM

Creeping Insidious Collectivism and its attendant Stress with Tasing tossed in for Good Measure pretty much assure it. My Dad went downhill fast. This heavy handedness is wholly unacceptable. 200V Electrocutions for any who find Cattle-Proddings of the Elderly a valid Leadership endeavor.Tom Posted: Jan 06 2015, 6:43 PM

Link 71222The gangsta rap music this cop was listening to surely merits a notation regarding his violent actions towards this mundane. This cop is recently graduated and I can guarantee he was briefed upon Supreme Court case Castle Rock v. Gonzales. In 2005 the SC ruled that it is NOT the duty of police to serve and protect. This court ruling is probably the underlying cause of the upward incidents of violence against the public. New cops know they will never be held accountable for harm, destruction of property or death when they dish it out. However, what happened here was there were too many crimes and gross ignorance of the law and firing the cop is probably a City decision to attempt to lessen the upcoming consequences when this man sues the cop and the City.

Link 174134Fired!? Usually they get a long paid vacation. Oh right, that's only if he killed his victim. He was probably fired for leaving a witness.Comments 1 - 20 of 23Page 12 of 2 >
