Officer Jerk Back On Patrol

Remember Officer William Figueroa, the pepper-spraying cop? If you need a reminder click here: Why Is This Cop Macing Motorcyclists?, and here: Pepper Spraying Texan Cop’s Excuse Is Complete BS.

It’s been reported by CBS DFW that Officer Figueroa is back on patrol in Texas. His story hasn’t changed. “While attempting to make contact with the driver, multiple motorcycles would not vacate the lane closest to my marked patrol car. I deployed my pepper spray into the lane closest to me at which point approaching motorcycles began to vacate the lane allowing me to conduct a traffic stop.”

The internal investigation into Officer Jerk has concluded, with any punishment being left to the discretion of his superior officers (uh, sure). For now, it appears that deploying pepper spray into the path of approaching motorcyclists is an acceptable practice in Texas. Another reason in a long list of reasons to stay the hell away from Texas.
