    Sticks and stones................considering that there are 2 sides to every story I have to admit this seems weak on the dentation officer’s part. As an officer we have to take verbal abuse, that is just the way it is. Henry admits to calling the dentation officer a dumb A^^ and telling him that he is a f*&%ing idiot coupled with the explanation the Chief gave to justify the action leaves one to think that the dentation officer got his feeling hurt and lashed out at Henry.

    The chief said Henry was “using abusive language," "Was verbal" and "making comments about our officer's weight." He went on to say the dentation officer felt "threatened and protected himself in the process." Based on that I can't justify using physical force. There is no threat that was made.

    If I "protected" myself in that situation I would be looking at some suspension days. Smacking someone in the mouth because they have a "big mouth" shows a lack of dicipline.

    Read it again.....the Chief Deputy did not condone the punch because he didn't like what was said about his weight. He said it MAY be self defense, the "VICTIM" advanced towards the Deputy for a reason, probably not a handshake is my guess, at which the deputy defended himself.

    Heavens forbid if a big mouth wanna be tough guy gets smacked in the mouth!!!! What is wrong with this country? What ever happened to consequences and accountability for your actions??

    darsavmo, I was wandering if any one else would comment on what he chief deputy said. You are so right, it seems he thinks its ok to punch someone because they say something you didn't like.

    While it may be funny, what if everyone who didn't like what was said to them about their weight or anything else and reacted like this deputy? What if the situation was reversed and the Deputy was punched in the mouth for a comment he made, I'm sure an arrest would have been made? And, the Chief Deputy's comments were also out of line as they appear to condone assault and battery in reaction to offensive words...

    Guess the so called victim should have kept talking at a distance. At some point as he approached close enough to be punched...the threat level would have gone up. I probably would have ignored the loud mouth in the first place because of dealing with some of the verbal taunting I have dealt with during my career. Guess most of us have developed thick skin.

    The so-called victim needs to look at himself before making fun of other people's weight.

    "If your feeling froggy, go ahead and jump!".... That's a classic! He also could have went with "Get up in my face, you best knuckle up"! (lol)
