Utah Officer Fired For Arrest Of Nurse, Recorded On Video

quote [ Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown says his detective was wrong when he roughly arrested a nurse who tried to explain hospital policy for drawing blood from an unconscious patient.

The video, recorded by a police body camera, of the rough arrest of University Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels went viral, drawing widespread condemnation and renewing the national debate over the appropriate use of force by the police.

Salt Lake Police Chief Mike Brown relieved Detective Jeff Payne of his duties and disciplined his watch commander, Lt. James Tracey, by demoting him to the rank of officer. ]

Has a week to appeal it, so, stay tunes for the shitstorm...

He's just going to quietly move to another police department in a month.

I'm glad to see shit rolled uphill, even if not very far.

I still love that name every time I see it. Wubbles.

Nurse Wubbles and Detective Pain do sound like an attempt to explain the incident to a small child.

He would have gotten away with it if he had just shot her.

Not the right racial persuasion to volunteer for bullet insertion.
