I don’t normally post about police officers losing their job, but when I do, it’s because of something that’s really screwed up. A Superior police officer won’t lose his job after admitting he stole more than $5,000 from fellow officers in the department. Officer Kirk Babic, is a 20-year veteran of the Superior Wisconsin police department. He is accused of theft and obstructing officers in their investigation of the theft.
Babic admitted to committing the offence of stealing more than $5,000 from fellow officers through an account established for voluntary contributions to maintain and equip the law enforcement fitness center. The civil review board in the city said it wouldn’t fire him despite the criminal misconduct because, they say, it would be unfair to fire him when the department never fired other officers for breaking the law.
What kind of laws did the other officers break exactly? well, a police captain admitted to drinking and driving when he was involved in a hit and run accident, then you had an officer accused of an incident of road rage, and another officer who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after a charge of domestic abuse fifth-degree was dismissed, and lastly, an officer found guilty of providing false statements in court 17 years ago.
With cops like these, who cares about criminals. Via: Telegram
