On June 7, 2016, the Weirton Police Department fired Mader. The lawsuit, filed in May 2017, claims the department fired him because of "failure to meet probationary standards of an officer" and "apparent difficulties in critical incident reasoning."

In September 2016, Weirton City Manager Travis Blosser told CNN that Mader was fired not just for the Williams shooting but for "a totality of circumstances," which included a March 2016 incident where Mader allegedly entered a man's vehicle without a warrant to put a ticket on the dashboard and an April 2016 incident where Mader and other officers failed to report an elderly woman's death as suspicious. The woman's death was later ruled a homicide.

Mader told CNN that in the March 2016 incident, he was writing a second parking ticket for a vehicle when the owner came out cursing at him so he responded with using the f-word. In the April 2016 incident, Mader said emergency responders told officers that the woman died of natural causes.

When reached for comment Monday, Blosser said the city had "no comment regarding the settlement."
maybe mabye not...

reading the whole story, it seems that single incident was not the only reason they fired him... and quite honestly, he had no way of determining if the handgun of the accused was loaded or not from a distance... so when other cops showed up, he raised the gun at them and they shot, killing him. Thats logical and justified.

The Department failed to reprimand him for those other incidents and properly report them... so this last incident could have ended very badly for not only him but the other officers that responded if the gun turned out to be loaded after all.

Keep in mind this is CNN reporting... so research into the details of the case would shed more light into whether or not being fired for "not shooting" is the true title for this now ex-cops story...

You seem to still be in favor of the police.

That article says that civilians, other than the police, reigned in the department saying otherwise.

The bottom line is that this guy couldn't follow procedures, and put his fellow officers at risk by allowing the perp to pull a weapon. The perp clearly was looking for 'suicide by cop', and the chance of any other outcome was remote at best. This cop needed to be gone . . .

Agreed in full. Cop had issues, and the perp was a piece of dog crap.

LOL not working in Baltimore or other cesspool cities were the cops backed off on purpose so the scumbags would shoot each other. Murders are way up in these places, where stupid libtard politics held them back from doing their job.

well what would you prefer? whats your idea to solve this problem...

take away their guns, give them weekly cultural sensitivity training, estrogen shots, mandatory yoga and have them ride around in light blue and pink priuses with emotional support puppies?

then when they meet up with a bad guy say:
"I said please STOP.... or I'll be forced to say pretty please stop AGAIN!"

Watch at YouTube

Geee, I guess I've had the wrong idea all along . . .
I thought the purpose was to keep the peace . . .
. . . not use every lame excuse that comes along to kill someone . . .
. . . knowing that the prosecutor will do everything he can to rubber stamp your actions. (unless there's waaay too much bad publicity)

Probably shouldn't judge the LEO's if you haven't walked in their shoes.

like when a perp points a gun at you?... thats a lame excuse?...

or how about after a perp runs over a bunch of people to include women and children on a side walk during a holiday... thats a lame excuse?...

or how about after a perp robs a store at gun point, shoots the clerk in the stomach paralyzing him from the waist down then sodomizes a teen aged girl over the checkout counter?... thats a lame excuse?...

tell me Mr AirWolf... how would you address the issue... you complain alot, but dont offer any logical solutions...

other than smacking the criminal in the face with a rolled up newspaper and yelling "NO ... NO ....NO"...

You wana know why Gotham has problems? Cause Batman just cant come to terms with killing the Joker... never mind the joker pretty much kills people on a daily basis..

You characters need to come up with better come-backs.
Using obvious situations to excuse the questionable ones is an non-starter.
That only shows you don't understand the problem.

Statistically, how big is the problem you speak of? Do you expect 100% perfection or is 95% good enough.

YOU thought wrong. Their role is that of garbage men, they take out the trash, and if the trash fights back, the trash gets stepped on.

Here is a clue, don't resist arrest and you will survive.

There you go thinking again

YOU don't understand the problem, cops get tired of mopping up the garbage, and it is a war out there.

Sounds like you love criminals, and hate law, order, and reason and logic.
