Former Victoria officer that tazed 76 year-old man hired in Beeville

Former Victoria Police Officer Nathanial Robinson has a new job with the Beeville Police Department, according to a Corpus Christi news station.

Robinson was fired in December after dash cam footage showed him stopping 76-year-old Victoria man Pete Vasquez, throwing him toward the ground, using a stun gun on him and later arresting him.

He was fired from the Victoria department after violating its police conduct, use of force and arrest policies and procedures.

A grand jury decided not to indict Robinson.

Beeville Police Chief Joe Trevino said Robinson won't immediately be placed back on the streets, KIII-TV reported. The 23-year-old will go through a 12-week training program, which will include learning department policies and procedures, and retraining on using tools and weapons, the chief told the TV news station.

2. Yes, just an hour away from Victoria on Highway 59 (due to be I-69 in the future)

I'm amazed by the poor judgment shown by Texas law enforcement.

3. Said police dept should be and hopefully will be sued OUT OF EXISTENCE the first time

this piece of shit brutalizes someone.

Then open a new police dept, with human beings


Perfect case too, they KNOW he is going to harm someone unnecessarily and hired him anyway

4. Put a Google alert on this fine specimen

Because you just know he's going to turn up doing something similar in the near future. They can't help it.
