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.
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.
