Grace: Lesson is to act as if being watched
A frame grab from a video posted on YouTube shows Omaha police officers during the March 21 arrest on Seward Street in Omaha. On Friday, four officers were fired and four others were under investigation for their possible roles in the incident, which members of the man's family say involved excessive force in the course of making the arrest.

An authority figure berates some young men, hits and pushes them and calls them names. This is captured on video. The man is fired.
He is not an Omaha police officer. He is Rutgers University's men's basketball coach Mike Rice, who the school forced out last week after a public outcry. Three others, including the athletic director, are also out of their jobs.
