    The page which was asking help to fight possible legal costs:


    Is also reporting that the policeman lost his job. And there is a video of an interview with the chief of police here:


    which also confirms that the policeman was fired.
    It looks like justice has quickly triumphed here.
    The first web site suggests that people contact the chief of police and the mayor to thank them. The contact information is here:

    what an insane story! I know I would have been arrested right along with that mom, there’s very few of us that would just stand by while some stranger was assulting one of the kids from a group we belonged to. I’m glad this didn’t end up taking weeks or months to find a solution.

    Considering that the cop assaulted a teenager and a mother with a babe in arms, I would certainly hope they file charges against the bozo ex-cop.

    I, too, am glad I wasn’t in that situation, as I would have likely physically removed the attacker from my child, and it could have gotten much worse…

    I’d really like to hear the cop’s side now, because I want to know just what the hell he was thinking.
