    Doesn’t Get Fired

    Los Angeles, Ca — Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy faces multiple charges after attacking his live-in girlfriend and mother of his child, torturing her as he held her head over a stove, lighting her hair on fire.

    The Orange County district attorney’s office reports that Deputy Alejandro Flores will appear in court Tuesday to face a litany of charges, including

    “domestic battery, aggravated assault, dissuading a witness, criminal threats, false imprisonment and assault likely to produce great bodily harm.”

    According to Deputy Amber Smith, Flores has not been fired for lighting another human on fire but instead placed on administrative leave. The LAPD can be very understanding when it comes to their boys, because come on, everybody makes mistakes, right?

    I would think an off-duty brutal assault would be grounds for immediate dismissal.

    Police unions run most big city police departments.

    Isn't it standard for departments (and many others) to place people on leave, often with pay, unless and until they are found guilty? Then they have to pay the department back if they are found guilty?
    Which makes sense. They aren't working, but neither is the department punishing them for a crime before they are found guilty of one.

    And this isn't the first time:

    He's suspended now, according to the article, and good - last thing you need is another crazy cop running around. I wonder how well they psych screen these people. There's a cable show here that features all these people that were kidnapped, raped, and/or assaulted but escaped before they were killed and at least half of them later on become cops. I don't know if that's such a good idea, an anger problem and a badge are a poor mix.
