MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police released on Friday the squad cam video which shows the conduct of a fired officer. 42-year-old Richard Schoen was discharged on May 1st for his involvement in an incident that happened in September 2011.
As the video just below demonstrates, Schoen hit a female prisoner who was handcuffed in the back of his squad. Officials say that’s a “violation of the core value of restraint, as described in the department’s Code of Conduct.”
The woman who was struck by Officer Schoen had been pulled over near 51st and Fiebrantz just after 9 p.m. on September 22, 2011. Officials say she had become “argumentative and used profanity” — both which led to her arrest.
