So you can do it without getting fired, but if you say you can do it, you get fired. Got it.

Hope he remembers this when he's applying for his next job at the food court at the mall.

"Paid leave pending investigation" is a phrase that comes to mind.

My take too. But, in position of authority, you can't joke about some stuff.

Was he fired or did he resign before being fired? Reading conflicting reports various news sites. I am NYT subscriber. Thank you!

Although he shouldn't have said it, if you watch the full thing he was obviously being sarcastic

The officer was wrong but I know what he was doing. He was trying to humor the woman & get her to do the right thing.
