If so, one has nothing to do with the other. The video and audio clearly shows the police officer was in the wrong. I do not even believe in the world that we clearly live in today where everyone seems to be suing for anything as a form of receiving a paycheck. But in this case, if this happen to me, and I received those injuries I would have waited it out, cause $250k would not have been enough. Also I would have made sure that the Beaver Police department and office publicly admitted wrongdoing and the office would not have had the opportunity to resign, he would have been fired and unable to ever work in law enforcement anywhere in the country. This officer has been in the news prior for his behavior. I also don’t understand why criminal charges was not brought up on this officer, his actions caused serious bodily injuries to a person, and he gets to resign and walk away? And a insurance company mist pay for his actions and the taxpayers mist pay $25K. Where is the outrage?

District Attorney Accuses The Beaver Countian And Attorneys Of Being Engaged In A Conspiracy To Undermine Justice.

Terrible for those that have to pick up the tab. Here is an example and lesson to be learned. Get to your council meetings, get involved, make people accountable. Madgar should be paying the approximate $25,000.00 or resign and Mayor Hamilton needs to speak with the BC,”THE ONLY REAL NEWS SOURCE IN BEAVER COUNTY,” on this matter.
Thank you John Paul and Co-Conspirators !

Very important to read BC archive. https://beavercountian.com/content/daily/man-who-was-attacked-by-beaver-police-k-9-during-traffic-stop-files-federal-lawsuit-alleging-history-of-excessive-force
Please refresh yourselves on this officers history.
Now it is time for Madgar and Hamilton to answer questions about any deals that may have been made, prior to Officer Wijnen-Reims resignation. Example: Resign ? Whoa Jeff, take some time off, you know, say you got hurt on the job. Oh and use up any vacation time you have coming. In the mean time I’ll get your health benefits and pension in order ..thanks bro, you’re savin’ our asses!
