Baltimore Cop Fired In YouTube Skateboarder Flap Wants Job Back

February 28, 2011  | 


A veteran Baltimore Police officer who was fired for berating a teenage skateboarder after a video clip of the incident was posted on YouTube is seeking to regain his position.

On Monday, a judge sided with the city's decision to dismiss the officer, reports WBALTV.com.

Salvatore Rivieri, a 19-year veteran, was fired in August amid public outcry over the incident. Officer Rivieri is seen pushing the 14-year-old and berating him. The officer had instructed the teens that they could not ride their skateboards in the area.

The officer was disciplined for failing to document the 2007 encounter in a written report, reports the Baltimore Sun.

If there were a National Officers Wall of Shame, Rivieri would be a good candidate for the poster boy. What an absolute disgrace to the many law enforcement professionals across this country. Oops, I better becareful not disrespect Rivieri, did you see what a tough guy he is when he took that 14 year old skate boarder down?
