Troubled Cop Shoots Boy Hiding in Shed

SAN ANTONIO (CN) - A 14-year-old boy got into a fight at a school bus stop and the school district's police officer responded by shooting him to death, the boy's mother says. She says the cop had been reprimanded 16 times in the previous 4 years, suspended without pay 5 times, and "recommended for termination for insubordination," but the school kept him on the force "without remedial training."

It's bad enough when police get away with all sorts of crimes, up to and including murder, time and time again being shielded by the Blue Wall of Silence. But here in this case, we see that the officer in question was already such a loose cannon that even his own department could not handle him, yet he was still on the job, and again refused to follow orders on the day this boy was shot dead.

"In approximately a four (4) year period leading up to the shooting, defendant Alvarado had been reprimanded sixteen (16) times," the complaint states. "Specifically, he had been reprimanded for insubordination and failure to follow supervisors' directives seven (7) times. Due to his poor service record, Alvarado was suspended without pay on five (5) occasions. On May 21, 2008, Alvarado was recommended for termination by Page. Despite being recommended for termination for insubordination and for refusal to follow supervisor directives, Alvarado remained on the force without remedial training."

Rather than fire Alvarado, the district transferred him to patrol, "an area of duty with less supervision," according to the complaint.

The San Antonio Police Department have indicated the shooting was "justified," however Alvarado has been moved to administrative duty. Probably so that the veteran can make it to the 20-year mark and retire, like this guy just did...
