Philadelphia Cop Previously Charged Twice For Assault Is Arrested Again

How much longer do we as a society continue to cling to the notion that corruption and brutality in law enforcement isn’t a national, widespread problem?

Via Free Thought Project:

Philadelphia Police Officer Deric Lewis was recently arrested for the third time, after being arrested on two other occasions and losing his job as a result. In his two previous arrests, Lewis was charged with assault and reckless endangerment, and was reported as being violent in both situations.

As a result of the first two arrests, he lost his job. However, shortly after, he was rehired, only to be arrested again.

In his most recent arrest, he was booked for domestic violence after his wife called the police on him.

While on the phone with the 911 operator, his wife claimed that he was trying to kill her.

“‘Please hurry. He has a gun and he’s going to kill me,’” she told the operator.
