PHILLY OFFICERS CLEARED BY GRAND JURY

PPD Arrest

I posted this at SYLG, but it deserves repeating here.

A grand jury has cleared a group of Philadelphia Police officers accused of assaulting three suspects in connection with a May 2009 shooting.

Following a year-long investigation, the grand jury concluded no criminal action is necessary against the officers involved in the arrests caught on tape following a triple shooting.

The report read in part:

“We found that the police on the scene used only the amount of force — and no more than the amount — that they reasonably believed was necessary to bring under control and into custody three suspects in a shooting who had tried to elude capture, who were resisting arrest, and who were creating a potentially significant danger to police” (LINK)

Hey Commissioner Ramsey, you may want to start that reinstatement paperwork for the four officers you summarily fired – without an interview, investigation, or hearing – right away. Douche.

    Wyatt,

    Will those Officers be re-hired? Has there been any talk about it?

  2. Wyatt Earp says:

    The grand jury recommended that the disciplinary action be “addressed,” but since Ramsey doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the average police officer, it’ll be up to an arbitrator.

  3. Rick says:

    Hopefully these officers get their jobs abck.

  4. Ingineer66 says:

    They will likely be reinstated and paid back pay. So the city will be out the money for the salaries and they could have been getting more police work out of them for the past year. Sounds like Ramsey is a total tool.

  5. I would just like the record to reflect I said as much when this first happened.
