Nassau County Cop Suspended for Brandishing Gun

Posted on the 06 May 2011 by Mikeb302000
The New York Post reports along with a fascinating video.
To me it didn't look like the bartender was frightened or even surprised. I wondered if maybe they were friends and this was their idea of playing around. 
Whatever it was, it certainly merited suspension, don't you think?  And, naturally it makes you wonder how common is this behaviour. Would it be more prevalent among cops than among civilian gun owners?  What do you think?
