Austin officer found with prostitute fired

An Austin police officer was fired Friday after police say they found him with a prostitute who said he paid her $10 to perform oral sex, according to a memo from Police Chief Art Acevedo.

Police detained Officer Manuel Garcia about 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 2 at Fiesta Gardens on Comal Street in East Austin, where his car was parked in a dark, unlit parking lot known for drug use and prostitution, the memo says.

Garcia told police that he knew the woman, according to the memo, which describes her as a known prostitute and narcotics user. Garcia said he was taking her to get something to eat and that he had tried to help her out in the past because she was going through hard times.

He told police that he knew she was a prostitute but that he didnít know she used drugs, the memo says.

1. I wish the police officers who beat/spray nonviolent people

would be fired.

2. When you're trying to help someone, you DON'T take anything in return for the money

I sure don't want someone with judgement like that to be legally allowed to shoot you!
