Better be careful who you say that to. An analyst, Rochelle Wyler, at the Connecticut Police Academy allegedly got mauled by a co-worker who apparently took her at her word. The co-worker, Captain Francis Woodruff, has been charged with disorderly conduct.

Wyler has bruises and teeth marks on her arm. She alleges that Woodruff annoyed her by referring to her as a ‘clerk.’ Woodruff said he was just kidding around. He is a training coordinator with the 130 member police department in Meriden, Connecticut, which is south of Hartford.

So what do we have here? A touchy analyst with a limited sense of humor? A police captain with poor judgement? Do these people understand how ridiculous they look to the rest of the world?

I never realized saying “Bite Me” could bring about such a violent response. I am going to throw that T-shirt in the trash!

11 Thoughts to “Bite Me!”

  1. Alanna

    I had a co-worker, who, after being bit by his toddler daughter, actually bit her back.

    Does this remind anyone of a famous boxer? jeesh…how disgusting. Surely you can find something better to post Moon… that is more in line with the needs of the nation like the economy, Korea, the treasury or fed reserve, or status of the ARRA funding stream and what it is or is not doing to help Americans…

    Michael, if you do not like what is posted here, find another blog.

    Moon, I like what you post most of the time, just can it be more relevant to life? I’m not criticizing, just suggesting…

    Alanna, how risky these days–if their pediatrician or babysitter had seen the bite marks, I’m sure social services would been at the door. But I’ll bet she thought twice before biting again.

    Human bites are very susceptible to infection. Biting is encouraged in most self defense classes.

    I feel certain that the Connecticut police department is embarrassed by the behavior of its employees. I expect that Francis Woodruff understands existentially, the meaning of career breaker.

  7. Alanna

    I was appalled by it. The reaction by the person being bit should deter most kids from doing it a second time. This reminds me that my nephew bit one of my daughters. It’s usually the toddler age when kids don’t have the verbal capacity to express themselves that they resort to this behaviour.

  8. Juturna

    It’s a crude expression used by certain elements in our society. She deserved it. As for the parent and I use that term in only a biological sense, they’ve listened to too much talk radio.

  9. Moon-howler

    What elements? Dogs and cats?

    Teething children will bite when they aren’t even angry. I suppose it feels good on those teeth coming in.

    Dogs or cats I guess! I believe Greg sent that response once to an interrogatory filed by an attorney.

  11. Moon-howler

    Do I even want to ask how the attorney responded?
