We'll never know what set Flanagan off...maybe the wind blew, maybe a car drove by playing a song he hated...people like him don't need a reason to be a-holes. And to say that the town needs more like Flanagan...maybe you should move to Chicago where everyone is corrupt. Sounds like your kind of place...people with UncommonSense are the very reason why others get fed up and stand for what's right...Flanagan's actions most certainly warrant dismissal from his position. So targeting people for no*****reason makes sense?? Wow....

I don't care how many scumbags and doooche bags the police have to deal with, they need to be held to a standard that is higher than the average citizen Joe. That comes with the job.

I posted the video. I was an eyewitness to the event. A special needs woman called the police after a domestic dispute with some neighborhood women. She did nothing to warrant such an outburst from Flanagan. Her copanion, who Flanagan can also be heard speaking to, is stricken with MS, and would sit for hours on that porch and not say much of anything to anybody. These people did absolutely nothing to provoke the behavior heard.You can believe it or not. I don't care.

So who are these people that are protesting? Bellaire residents, or internet whackos who showed up to stir crap in a town they've never set foot in before and don't have a vested interest in? What happened before that video was shot? What set Lt. Flanagan off? Who were these people he was dealing with and what's their story and possible past history and dealings with the PD?

Did Flanagan use foul language? Yes. Should he have done a better job of controlling his temper? Yes. Is that video alone grounds for strong discipline or termination? Most likely not.

Lower level citizen is a reflection of a persons actions and life style, not income, don't cloud the issue. Remember those accusing Flanagin are the violators of the law, not the law abiding citizens.

What about the numerous other accounts of residents being harassed and bullied by Flanagan?? People being wrongfully arrested, targeted because of the color of their skin, being told by Flanagan himself that he could make them disappear and no one would care, he could are up a reason to arrest them?? To Protect And Serve?? Yeah, right. And just because someone's income status is lower than yours, Shemp, doesn't make them lower than you. Remember: citizens' tax dollars pay his salary, so he works for them.

Although unprofessional, absolutely nothing to warrant any job loss or even reassignment. Police Officers deal with these lower level citizens multiple times a week, maybe even the same offender. It is my understanding that the Bellaire Police have been called to this residence many, many times. If anything, they should cite these people for being a public nuisance. What we have heard is only a small part of this video or incident, much more to this story. I support Officer Flanigan, it is just unfortunate he sank to the level of the people he and other Officers deal with on a daily basis.
