Rhode Island Cop Still Employed Despite Conviction of Kicking Woman to Head!


NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) -- Convicted Lincoln Police Officer Edward Krawetz was a no-show on the first day of an administrative hearing to determine if he can continue to wear a badge.

The 12-year veteran of the force is fighting to keep his job after he was convicted of felony assault in March. The case is best known for video from a security camera at Twin River in Lincoln showing Krawetz kicking a handcuffed woman to the head.

Under the Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights, a three-member panel of police officers will decide his professional fate after what is expected to be three days of hearings.

LEOs should automatically be

LEOs should automatically be fired for any serious conviction.

If he's fired, he'll just show up in another jurisdiction

Jail time in general population (in addition to firing) should be applied upon conviction.

3 Days of hearings!!!???

I need 3 seconds of that video footage to make this EASY call. STOP WASTING TAXPAYER MONEY and throw this psycho out. That kind of behaviour is inexcusable!
