Video Shows Cop Shove Man Out Of Wheelchair, Ruled "Within Policy"

Chris | InformationLiberation

What does it take to get a police officer fired? Well, apparently shoving a disabled man out of his wheelchair then charging him with "felony battery against a law enforcement officer," a charge which was later dropped, isn't enough.

From JC Online:
The entire Lafayette Police Department command staff recommended that Lt. Tom Davidson be fired for toppling a man in a wheelchair into the street last year, but the department's Civil Service Commission decided instead to issue a 30-day suspension and place the officer on supervisory probation for a year.

Lafayette Police Chief Patrick Flannelly made that revelation Tuesday as he released a video of the wheelchair incident, which took place Oct. 1.

"It was just inappropriate," Flannelly said of Davidson's behavior, adding that it was especially egregious given the lieutenant's status as the highest-ranking officer at the scene.

The five civilians on the commission agreed that Davidson had engaged in conduct unbecoming an officer. They disagreed, however, on the second charge brought against him, voting 3-2 that his use of force in response to resistance was in line with LPD policies.

A similar incident to this occurred in Canada where a police officer and his brothers in uniform took up almost an entire sidewalk, then shoved a crippled woman with cerebral palsy to the ground when she tried timidly to squeeze through them.

The cops in that case were given a one day suspension, but it was later overturned.

Whoever said "crime doesn't pay" never worked for the state.

9815 This is absolutely horrible. My oldest son is a cop and my youngest is paralyzed. I feel like I have a voice, your motto is protect and serve COP is not spelt GOD. You couldn't get out of the way? That wheelchair weighs about 200 pounds so that was no love tap. This guy should know what life in a chair is like. He should have to piss in a bag for the rest of his life like someone in a chair. 30 day suspension what a joke.

66231 so unacceptable. this cop should be fired, the guy in the wheel chair should sue the police dept. and the officer. The cop is a loser, he probably beats his wife like that when she disrespects him too. Some guys should never be given a badge...they are already too full of themselves.

7565 Kevin is correct on both points: a 200-lb chair (some weigh even more) doesn't give a "love tap," and the cop had time to move and should have done so. Tom Davidson may be a Lt., but he's not an officer or a cop. He's a pig.

As history shows, it's inevitable that citizens will get rid of pigs if the good cops don't do so - and it's difficult for citizens to tell the difference when pigs and cops wear the same uniform. Don't let it happen. We need better screening for cop jobs, training in nonviolent resolutions, and unbiased review boards.

9639 It appears those bitches entrapped that person as it seems they were waiting for that person to come by. Why were all the pigs hanging out? Waiting at the city trough for more tax payers to feed their machine.
