Cop Arrested Twice for Assaulting Women, Stayed a Cop and Was Just Arrested a Third Time

Deric-Lewis

Philadelphia, PA — Philadelphia Police Officer Deric Lewis was recently arrested for the third time, after being arrested on two other occasions and losing his job as a result. In his two previous arrests, Lewis was charged with assault and reckless endangerment, and was reported as being violent in both situations.

As a result of the first two arrests, he lost his job. However, shortly after, he was rehired, only to be arrested again.

In his most recent arrest, he was booked for domestic violence after his wife called the police on him.

While on the phone with the 911 operator, his wife claimed that he was trying to kill her.

“‘Please hurry. He has a gun and he’s going to kill me,’” she told the operator.

Police say that when they arrived on the scene both Lewis and his wife turned on the police. Lewis refused to identify himself and became belligerent with the officers and reportedly attacked one of them.

Lewis was arrested and charged with assault and two counts of harassment, which still seems light in comparison to what an average person would be charged with if they behaved in a similar manner.

When asked to comment on the case, Lewis’ wife told reporters that “I’m sure he doesn’t give a s**t about what you write. He’s on his way back to work right now.”

In his previous cases, Lewis was able to avoid prosecution because the witness never showed up for court.

Police spokesman Lt. John Stanford said that Lewis would not be getting off easy this time because the witnesses are police officers and will be required to be in court.

“This time, if the assault is against police, I’m pretty sure those officers will be responding to the hearing,” he said.

When pressed about why Stanford was rehired and allowed back on the police force, Stanford said that the matter was being investigated.

In 2010 when he was arrested, the victims in the case were girlfriends that he was involved with, meaning that he was likely manipulating or threatening them into silence.

Unfortunately, domestic violence is a serious problem among police officers, and in most cases they never see any consequences. According to recent studies, law enforcement officers beat their wives or girlfriends at nearly double the rate of the rest of the population.

Several studies, according to Diane Wetendorf, author of Police Domestic Violence: Handbook for Victims, indicate that women suffer domestic abuse in at least 40 percent of police officer families. For American women overall, the figure is 25 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to The Advocates for Human Rights Organization, studies indicate that police families are 2-4 times more likely than the general population to experience domestic violence, making the potential for disparities in protective success particularly troubling.

  • Wow…one of the worst cases I’ve seen yet

  • take off that badge and hes just another rapist

  • what a great cover for him… does what he wants and no accountability.

  • “How many times does a cop have to be arrested before they are held accountable?”
    What, you mean by the other cops, who are telling us they are the only parties capable of deciding if a cop is a criminal?
    Hmmmm…..

  • Hugging is good medicine. It transfers energy and gives the person hugged an emotional lift. you need four hugs a day for survival, eight for maintenance, twelve for growth. Scientist say that hugging is a form of communication because it can say things you don’t have the words for. and the nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one.

  • Interchange “cop” with school superintendent, senator, etc., etc., etc. Male dominated culture has its ins and outs.

  • the pays good i guess

  • takes 3rd time to be a charm?

  • Illuminate, they can do that.

  • They aren’t the police anymore. They are armed thugs protecting rich white guy property. Like a pimp’s heavy.

  • Lifetime free passes.. with pay.

  • I thought this was the USA, where people are innocent until proven guilty, but I guess I was wrong. The cop was arrested twice before, BUT NEVER CONVICTED. The charges were withdrawn so you can’t even claim conspiracy.

    • How many people in general get laughed at for saying just that? Not surprised he never was convicted. Just being that a cop was arrested, twice, is a pretty big deal. It’s usually paid vacation, maybe a transfer if they really blew it.

    • Yes, you are most definitely wrong with you notion of innocent until proven guilty.

  • What ever happened to tar a feath these criminals BASTARDS

  • Sounds like barbaric behavior.

  • The American police are so corrupt, its time they were exposed for the world to see and shamed into changing there ways, if that doesn’t work then America needs a people’s Revolution

  • :X

  • This scum thinks he’s untouchable , somebody put a stop to him

  • dick chopping time

  • Public perception of American police is being changed by the increasing number of shocking incidents now being shown. Sure, there are many, many more good cops, but the bad ones ruin it all, for everyone. Someone said recently that the press never shows the incidences of cops being good! Why on earth should they, cops are supposed to be good!!
