N.J. Cop who Claimed Sgt. Left Him In Wreck Gets Settlement

September 13, 2011  | 

Edison (N.J.) Police officer Joseph Kenney has received $250,000 from the city to settle a harassment claim that arose after he rescued two men from a smoking auto wreck.

Officer Kenney, now 60, crawled into a vehicle that had flipped over to save two men on July 3, 2008. At some point Officer Kenney became wedged in the vehicle and radioed for help. He claimed Sgt. Glinsky responded to the scene, and declined to help him out of the vehicle because there were "dirty (expletive) Indians" in the car.

Officer Kenney emerged from the vehicle and after filing a complaint about the incident was slapped with insubordination charges and placed on leave. He eventually sued the department, claiming he was ridiculed, harassed and pressured to retire.

I don't understand how any officer could refuse to help any person in need no matter if the person is a good guy or bad guy. and if its another police officer shame on you.
