Fire and Police Commission Fires Officer Again
MILWAUKEE---The fire and police commission reveresed its decision Tuesday and fired Richard Schoen from the Milwaukee Police Department.
Just last week they voted 2-1 to reinstate Schoen with a 60 day suspension.
Schoen is the officer caught on dash cam video striking a handcuffed female suspect in the face.
The reinstatement infuriated community activists.
The fire and police commission said it did not bow to public pressure or protests. They insist a better understanding of the rules helped them reach their new decision.
