Retired Cop Richard DeCoatsworth Honored by Obama, sat with FLOTUS – Arrested For Raping 2 Women

May 18, 2013

Richard DeCoatsworthYes, dammit! I blame Obama, I don’t care what anyone says! What did they do to this poor guy!!!!

As a rookie cop, he performed a deed which earned him an invitation to attend President Obama’s first congressional address, and sat next to the First Lady Michelle Obama during the president’s address. After being shot in the face by a suspect, he managed to chase him down for several blocks before collapsing. However, DeCoatsworth called in enough information by radio that police were able to track down and arrest the suspect later the same day.

See, it all went wrong from there.

However, since 2009, various incidents demonstrated a slide in DeCoatsworth’s behavior as a cop. For instance, in 2009, local witnesses said that DeCoatsworth acted recklessly, along with another cop when bystanders said that a suspect they were tailing did nothing wrong, which ended when he and another fired while children were nearby.

In November, 2011, Internal Affairs investigated an alleged scuffle between him and another officer. DeCoatsworth also reportedly amassed nine citizen complaint, accusing him of assault, abuse and misconduct, before retiring from the police force on disability in December, 2011.


In February, 2012, an arrest warrant was issued for DeCoatsworth after he allegedly threatened a woman in Port Richmond, NBC10 Philadelphia also reported.

    Is there even one ~ just ONE ~ person of honor and integrity who voted for Barry? It’s mind-numbing how many liberals are also thugs.

    • Jackie says:

      1st of all the writer is being satirical about it being President Obama’s fault. 2nd you do not know how this former officer voted for, or if he actually voted. 3rd, the fact that you call the President of the United states Barry out of disrespect shows you are not the brightest of the dim bulbs you hang with at tea party functions and you are too disrespectful for me to call an American. Go to Canada!!! Colon Powel voted for President Obama, as did a lot of other very intelligent and hard working people. John Wayne Gacy was photographed with a president. That does not mean the President had anything to do with killing 33 men and boys. My God man, buy a brain, or at least buy a book.

      • Just Sayin says:

        At the age of 18, Gacy became involved in politics, working as an assistant precinct captain for a Democratic Party candidate in his neighborhood. This decision earned more criticism from his father, who accused his son of being a “patsy”.[15] Gacy himself later speculated the decision may have been an attempt to seek the acceptance from others that he never received from his father.

        Your kinda making his point here.

        Just think about this for a second:
        Did you ever see anyone arrested
        wearing a Bush T-shirt,
        or for you older guys and gals,
        an Eisenhower,
        Gerald Ford,
        Ronald Reagan,
        or even Nixon,
        or Bob Dole shirt.
        There MUST be a message here,
        but I can’t quite grasp it.

        Another dumb liberal making excuses for another dumb liberal. SHUT UP already! His real name is BARRY SOETORO, get over it. He changed his name to a MUSLIM name because 1. he is a MUSLIM 2. Because Senator/President Soetoro sounded boring and it wasn’t cool enough! 😉 Why can’t we see ANY of his records he had sealed with to the tune of 1.8 million? On the hot seat for 3 very damaging scandals and more to come I’m sure. You morons will keep making excuses for this sorry, lying excuse of a President all the way to your graves.

        • Angelina M says:

          You are right on target with your comment, Libs! If people would just research their news, they might be a little more informed about reality. Once again, you are right about them going to their graves with their blind support for him, which I simply cannot wrap my head around.
