Action on cop for remarks about Houston’s body

A policeman lifted a sheet covering the just-dead body of singing legend Whitney Houston and made “inappropriate” comments including saying “Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?” another officer claims.
Beverly Hills Detective Sergeant Terry Nutall had “no legitimate” reason for the action or remarks, made at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11 last year, after she had been found dead in a bath, said a legal document filed by the fellow cop, published on Tuesday. A coroner subsequently ruled that the 48-year-old singing legend died of accidental drowning, with cocaine and heart disease listed as contributing factors, on the eve of last year’s Grammys show.
In the legal claim, published by the Los Angeles Times, fellow officer Sergeant Brian Weir alleges that he was stripped of various privileges when he raised the alleged misconduct with superiors.
“Nutall, for no legitimate (reason) knelt beside and leaned over the decedent (and) removed the sheet and/or other covering from the body of the decedent to an area below the pubic region of the decedent’s body,” it said. He then “came in close proximity to touching the body .. While making inappropriate comments to the effect .. That the decedent ‘looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state’ and ‘Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?’”
“Nutall... Treated the dead body of the decedent in a way that Nutall knew would outrage ordinary family sensibilities,” he alleged in the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles on September 11. Weir said he responded to the Beverly Hilton Hotel — where Houston was due to attend a pre-Grammys party that Saturday evening — as the senior patrol sergeant on duty at the time. Afterwards, he raised the alleged misconduct with superiors, but claims that the city of Beverly Hills and its police department “retaliated” by removing him from duty with SWAT and K-9 units, cutting overtime pay, withdrawing certain privileges and harassing him.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
