    With pay? If anyone else assaulted a customer, fellow employee or what have you while on the job / duty they would be fired on the spot with out question. Sure this is under investigation, but when he is proven guilty in a court of law what do you thing his charges will be? A simple slap on the wrist and told to be a good boy and sent right back to work like it never happened. The people need to join together and fight against these double standards. Just because they were a badge doesn't make it okay. The general public needs to remember the police are public servants and they are their to serve and protect the public, not the serve, assault and mentally and physically abuse the public. Stand up now becuase with police like this you might not be able to tomorrow. These are your rights that are being violated not just the victim in question. When the police abuse and assault one memeber of the public the police abuse and assault your rights as a part of that public.
