An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.
Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.
The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack. Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request. According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank. http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/05/police-officer-pushes-over-man-in-wheelchair-doesnt-get-fired-4787679/
Oh, but thank god we have government to protect us and look after marginalized people.
At least his coworkers realize he did something wrong
This is fucking disgusting. And I agree with the person above me…at least the rest of the department is just as appalled by his behavior. What a scumbag
I’m pretty sure everyone has that ONE person they follow that when you see a super weird post on your dash that makes you go “oh lord what” and want to unfollow them, you hover up your cursor and realize it’s THEM. THAT PERSON! and then it becomes okay.
And if you can’t see that one person, it’s probably you.
this game is a terrible influence haha. no bearing on actual warfare
It is a video game, fictional.
i miss the old battlefield Nam, we had a teacher who was a Nam veteran and he would jump in on our games and say hilarious shit. he was terrible though
I love this anime so much.
In just a couple of days, a videogame streaming website with an unhealthy fixation on a beared Texan raised just under $25,000 for paediatric cancer.
I remember when Rev streamed a 24-hour Boat-O-Cross marathon and raised just under $2k, and how big a deal that was. Look at where we are now.
