The news is out: [WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) — A suburban Milwaukee police officer who has fatally shot three people in the line of duty since 2015, including a teenager outside a mall in February, is expected to receive about $130,000 for resigning from the force.
The Wauwatosa Common Council approved a separation agreement with Joseph Mensah on Tuesday night, effective Nov. 30. The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has ruled all three shootings by Mensah were justified self-defense.
The deal calls for Mensah to receive 13 months pay, a severance payment of $15,000 and any pay before his resignation date, as well as accrued vacation and overtime. The city will pay $19,500 into his deferred compensation plan and pay its share of his health insurance for 13 months.
Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride said Mensah’s resignation will cost a total of about $130,000.]
Joseph Mensah is a disgrace to the skin he wears.
