The case of sleeping police officers and their stupid defender

This is from AFP:-

A Bulgarian police spokeswoman was sacked on Thursday after calling a man who took and circulated a photo of three policemen sleeping in their car a "peasant fool," authorities said.

The image of the three men in uniform snoozing in their patrol car in the eastern city of Varna appeared in Bulgarian media and went viral on the Internet in recent days, even though it was taken on July 2.

Asked to comment earlier this week, Varna police spokeswoman Kalinka Pencheva lashed out at the picture's author Boyan Boozov in a television interview.

Prime Minister Boyko Borisov personally ordered her dismissal for the "inadmissible" comments, calling them "damaging to the interior ministry's reputation."

No disciplinary measures have so far been taken against the sleeping officers.
