Last week we reported about the firing of the Hurst police officer who was videotaped in November cursing and threatening a teen during an arrest.
Since then, we've gotten a copy of Officer Disraeli Arnold's "letter of indefinite suspension" in which Police Chief Steve Moore explains why the four-year veteran was being fired.
Arnold was seen on a videotaped YouTube posting threatening and taunting 17-year-old Andrew Rodriguez. The officer dropped several F-bombs along the way.
At first we didn't see a lot of new information in the chief's six-page letter to Arnold, but something toward the end caught our eye.
Moore wrote, "I am deeply concerned by a written comment you included in your response to Lt. Pell duirng the Internal Affairs investigation. You stated 'Regarding my use of strong language during this incident, although I believe it was helpful in the circumstance, in the future, I will stay away from the use of profanity unless I feel it is absolutely necessary.'
"I do not believe the use of the profanity, and threats were necessary during this or any incident, and I am concerned you will repeat this behavior again."
