Rhode Island Cop Still Employed Despite Conviction of Kicking Woman to Head
A Rhode Island cop who was convicted of a felony after he was caught on video kicking a handcuffed woman to the head is still employed as a police officer.
Lincoln police officer Edward Krawetz kicked the woman in the head in 2009 claiming self-defense because apparently he was in fear for his life. He didn’t go to trial until March of this year.
He was convicted and sentenced to ten years in prison but because he is a cop, the judge suspended the sentence, meaning he didn’t serve a day in jail, even though he already had a prior conviction for assaulting a jogger.
He will also collect his pension once he reaches retirement age.
And now a panel consisting of three cops will determine if he gets to keep his job. And it will take them at least two months to come to that decision in which Krawetz will continue receiving cop benefits, even though he is not getting paid at the moment.
And to think that if it wasn’t for that surveillance camera, he would still be on the streets, unleashing his fury on more citizens.
