I Do Not Think the Word “Harsh” Means What You Think it Means

This is currently on the front page of the Houston Chronk’s website:


What might the “harsh punishment” be?

Life in a Texas prison?

Or even a day in a Texas prison?

Or, as we find when clicking the link…


And why, might you ask, did the cop taze the man?

A South Texas police officer who used a stun gun on a 76-year-old man during a traffic stop for an expired inspection sticker has been fired.

After Pete Vasquez was pulled over, he pointed out to [now-former Officer Nathanial] Robinson the dealer tags on the back of the car, making it exempt from an inspection. As Robinson proceeded to arrest Vasquez, a scuffle ensued and Robinson used the stun gun.

And yet, if Mr. Vasquez turns his back when next he’s at a parade in Victoria and members of the city’s police march by, take a wild guess as to who will be vilified.
