He's a proven "controller", practically a made man.

Of course he’ll get his job back; he’s a loyal apparatchik.

The caption says the deputy, whose hands appear to be around the suspect's neck, rendered the student unconscious. [AP]

He should just man up and accept responsibility for what he did.
And then jump off a bridge.

You know, he could probably get a job in any number of podunk towns and go on his merry way. This one is an especially dim bulb.

The important thing is that the officer got home safely to his family.

Good to see that comment popping up in local papers...the word is spreading.

Maybe he should go home and wash his mouth out with his service revolver.

It’s from the movie Ready to Rumble.
If you haven’t seen it and you like wrestling, you got to check that one out.

Also, he’d probably make a great prison guard.
