A costly police officer for Philadelphia

`Police Officer Kenneth Fleming has cost the City of Philadelphia and an insurance company nearly $1 million in legal settlements.

In one case alone, $750,000 was paid to settle a suit brought by a minister who was nearly paralyzed when Fleming threw him to the ground at Philadelphia International Airport.

Fleming has been suspended for punching a court officer in front of a sitting judge, and for performing a strip search in public. He’s been called a liar by the Police Department’s own internal investigators.

And, yet, the 24-year veteran of the force remains on the job.’
