The Dallas police officer who pulled over the Houston Texans’ Ryan Moats, pointed a gun at his wife during a traffic stop, and prevented Moats from visiting his mother-in-law on her deathbed may have been spoiling for a fight. Busted Coverage unearthed this Internet posting by Robert Powell, the officer in question, written during his academy days:
“The count downs begins:
18 days of work then the real work starts and I can shoot people.”
It’s possible he was joking, but it’s also possible he’s a sociopath.
