The Cop Who Documented Her Own Police Brutality

Senior Corporal Cat Lafitte of Dallas claimed she was acting in self-defense when she threw her boot at a hospital worker. Unfortunately for her, her Facebook posts tell another story. Lafitte thought it would be a good idea to brag on Facebook, "I threw my boot at him, Jerry Springer style, and nailed him in the face. It broke his glasses and cut his face and bruised it up real good." Lafitte also posted to Facebook a photo of a small black boy surrounded by police officers and the comment, "Quick . . . sprinkle some crack on him!" An equal opportunity offender, Lafitte also disrespects homeless people and described herself on Facebook as an "Official Bum Roller." She was fired for the attack on the hospital worker and for Facebook posts that put the department in a bad light.
