The police officer who threatened to tie a homeless man to a pole in the freezing cold should be fired from his job! This is no way to treat one of the most vulnerable members of our society! Other ways of dealing with this homeless man were possible--the police officer could have arranged for a social worker to take the homeless man to a shelter without being in a police car, or offered some other kind of help in a non-threatening way! Instead, the police officer chose to abuse his power, and has aggravated tensions between homeless people and the police through his actions!
