Milwaukee Cop Richard Schoen was fired in May of this year after his superiors saw a dashboard-camera video that shows Schoen climbing into the backseat of his cruiser to repeatedly punch a handcuffed woman in the face. He's now getting his job back despite the objections of Milwaukee's police chief and mayor.

According to a FOX 6 story published upon the video's release, Schoen arrested Jeanine Tracy for being “argumentative and us[ing] profanity” during a traffic stop. While in the backseat of the police cruiser, she yelled and stomped her leg, complaining that it hurt.

Well they got it part right...

"I think it sends a bad message both to the community and to the members of the Milwaukee Police Department," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Yeah and the message is what?

The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office told TODAY'S TMJ4 they got the case last year and they also consulted with the U.S. Attorneys office.

See they get a taste of what we have known all along. THE CORRUPTION IS IN LOCK STEP ALL THEY WAY THROUGH THE JUDICIARY AND THE STATE AND THE FEDERAL AGs.

See, Mayor, Police Chief, you aren't part of the system, YOU ARE THE SYSTEM. LOOK IN THE MIRROR. THIS IS YOU. Been waking up on the wrong side of the bed your whole career and never knew that.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Good cops should

frag this POS. That would be justice.

What would the Founders do?

I'm with the police chief and mayor..

What about the woman's "Bill of Rights?"
