Sitting against a wall in full dress uniform with his hands cuffed behind him, this is former Philadelphia police captain Ray Lewis being arrested during the Occupy Wall St protests.

The ex-cop was taking part in the demonstrations in New York when he was detained by fellow officers who put toughened plastic bands around his wrists and shoved him to the floor.

If he's not been a cop since 2004 they should add impersonating an officer to the list of charges.

If the ex officer, at his court hearing plead not guilty for reasons of insanity, it would be an easy case for a jury to believe.
I'm sure his former fellow officers in Philly were watching his behavior on TV with their jaws dropped not believing what they were seeing.

What, Philadelphia isn't a high crime city??? If one was to go on his record before 2004 he's not such a shining star and may account for why crime was so high prior to 2004 (and it still continues).

Wonder how much his monthly pension check is.

More News, Pepper-Spray Cops Placed on Leave

Now for the pepper-spray fallout at UC Davis. Two campus cops involved in spraying seated students were put on administrative leave today, and the school's chancellor struggled to keep her job, the AP reports. Chancellor Linda Katehi rebuffed the faculty's call for her resignation, promising to assemble a task force of staff, faculty, and students to investigate the incident.

UC Davis Places Pepper Spray Police Officers on Administrative Leave
It's common practice for cops to be put on leave when they're under administrative review. The fact that they are on leave is by no means an indictment of any wrong doing on their part.

I spent a great deal of time in uniform and am at an absolute loss why anyone would be willing to work for the UC Davis PD. It's a lose/lose situation for officers. They're condemned for not keeping order and condemned for trying to maintain it.
