Taxpayers Shell Out $175K for Brave Cop Fired by Dept. for Refusing to Kill a Man

Recommended Posts

As TFTP reported last year, former Weirton police officer Stephen Mader sued the city after he was fired for not killing a suicidal man who needed help.

It was reported this week that Mader will be receiving $175,000 in a settlement as a result of his unnecessary firing.

“At the end of the day, I’m happy to put this chapter of my life to bed,” Mader said. “The events leading to my termination were unjustified and I’m pleased a joint resolution has been met.

“My hope is that no other person on either end of a police call has to go through this again,” said Mader, who still lives in Weirton with his family but now drives trucks for a living, according to WPXI.

As we reported at the time, on May 6, 2016, Mader responded to a domestic call about a suicidal person. When he arrived on the scene, Mader confronted 23-year-old Ronald D. Williams who was armed and mentally distraught.

This just continues on with the discussions yesterday have cops not killing people. Maybe because this is what happens when they don't kill them... geez. This is discouraging correct policing....by proxy. They are supposed to lead by example and be rewarded not discouraged.

Actually, some of my very best friends are cops, real, regular, down to earth, give a guy  that’s had one too many a ride home types. If they weren’t like that I wouldn’t even glance at them let alone speak to them or hang out with them. I know a few assholes too,.

Just reading the craziness today is pissing me off to the point of not wanting to read any at all.

Luckily this guy was a military cop before and has good training as well as a heart or we would be bitching because he shot an unarmed man.
