An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.
Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.
The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack. Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request. According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank. http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/05/police-officer-pushes-over-man-in-wheelchair-doesnt-get-fired-4787679/
Oh, but thank god we have government to protect us and look after marginalized people.
At least his coworkers realize he did something wrong
This is fucking disgusting. And I agree with the person above me…at least the rest of the department is just as appalled by his behavior. What a scumbag
you know, when I see a collection of fat bald scumbags in uniform assaulting a disabled person the words “Police officer” aren’t the ones that spring to mind
“Harry Potter is symmetrical.”
Not just symmetrical - this is ring composition, favoured by Homer and other good writers. The 4th book is at the centre of the ring.

Reblogging because I like that phrase a lot.

I love how dementors are synonymous to Umbridge. I agree with this completely.
This… is really amazing. I-… wow.
The technical term for this is a chiasm. Props to JK for using a great old storytelling technique.

So today as a prank I made a sheet music print out of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball but replaced the name with “Christmas Time Meditation” and deleted the words and I’m going to put it in the with church music and see if the pianist notices.
He noticed and I can now add “Yelled at by two priests at once” to my list of accomplishments

IKEA should make an app that’s basically the Sims but only the interior design part and it’d be all ikea furniture.
I’d play the hell out of it.
Amie, you know that IKEA came out with a Sims 2 stuff pack that was just IKEA furniture, right?
Ok but it needs to be a solo app game that’s like $5
