I see that psychologically. The officer did not like being reminded of what the wars have done to people; in his name, with his money. If he could be counselled to understand that one must face the consequences of one's actions, however unpalatable, he won't do it again, I guess.

Maybe the officer could be made to apologize. But then again, he might have been on the net and saw Rumsfeld on the 10th September 2001, stating that Pentagon bureaucracy couldn't trace $ 2.3 trillion (yes, trillion) and he was extremely upset about the military hiding/losing so much money.

Police who disrespect veterans like this should be criminally charged and lose their jobs. We should brand them. Make them wear a mark that let's the public know they should be shamed

Dog is man's the best friend, but Personal Protection Dogs have much more importance than what their name refers to. They can do a lot more works if trained properly by Professional Dog Trainers.

The cop should be made to spend a day or two in a wheel chair. A little empathy might suit him better.

There are good and bad people in every profession. There are plenty of good people in need of jobs. This cop should lose his job and let someone better have his position.

Imagine serving 20 years for your country, only to come back and find that the police have taken over. Educating them won't do any good. They prefer being stupid and mean.

these scumbag cops need a refresher in the ADA and in protecting and serving us instead of the banksters

This just shameful behavior. I hope the cop loses his job. We don't need people like home to protect and serve.

These beach town hire rent-a-cops for the summer. They can deal with some drunk obnoxious Jersey kids at times . They however, the rent-a-cops, are looking for trouble themselves. Usually 20-somethings with a plastic badge on a power trip.

Is there a lawyer in the house?!?!?!
