Copper fired after Facebook blunder

An American police officer had to resign from his post after he rather foolishly wrote on Facebook that there should be a law that allows police to arrest people for being stupid.

Cody Anderson, who was a copper in Bozeman, in the Hicksville state of Montana, decided to hand in his badge after causing a bit of a stink with his daft comments, and giving an ironic twist to his comment; surely he’d now be liable for arrest after this act of mental deficiency.

Bets of all, the comments may never had come to light had he and his colleagues (as well as the city) not had a lawsuit filed against them by a local man who claimed he was wrongly arrested and that his civil and constitutional rights were violated. Oh dear.
