Title: Cop Will Get $57k a Year in Disability for ‘Stress’ of Shooting Unarmed Man in the Back

Deer Brown, WI — If you need an example of the ridiculous police state circus that is the land of the free, the following case should do. A former Deer Brown police officer — charged with a felony for shooting an unarmed man in his back — will receive $57,000 a year, tax free, in disability payments for stress she endured after trying to kill a man on his way home from work.

Former Deer Brown officer Devon Kraemer, 30, has been collecting the payments for nearly a year and, according to reports, could receive them for the rest of her life. According to Kraemer, the aftermath of the shooting and the subsequent trial for aggravated battery for shooting Manuel Burnley Jr. was too much to handle, and she will need compensation in the form of 57,000 tax free dollars every single year for the rest of her life.

Kraemer is only 30-years-old. If she lives to the average life expectancy of 80, she can expect to receive nearly $3 million if it is not adjusted for inflation—for shooting an unarmed man in the back.

During her trial last year, Kraemer was not convicted of aggravated battery because the jury was hung. Instead of seeking a retrial, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said his office would not retry the case. The news of getting away with attempted murder  after being on paid vacation for two years was apparently too much for Kraemer to handle, so she resigned on July 9th, filing for disability three days prior, contending the stress of the shooting and its aftermath had left her unable to work as a police officer, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

According to the report:

Kraemer’s new benefits were revealed in court records recently filed in a civil rights lawsuit filed by the man Kraemer shot, Manuel Burnley Jr.

Duty disability insurance, or retirement, provides income replacement for police and firefighters who can no longer do their jobs because of injuries suffered on the job. For most police officers and firefighters outside Milwaukee, the program is administered through Wisconsin Employee Trust Funds.

In Milwaukee, several officers suspected of misconduct had claimed debilitating stress as the basis for collecting, sometimes even citing the department’s investigation or media coverage as the cause of their stress. The city’s Employee Retirement System adopted changes to close the loopholes that allowed that in 2013.

Showing just how unnecessary it was to shoot Manuel Burnley is the fact that it started over a bus fare dispute. On March 14, 2016, Burnley was escorted off a Milwaukee County bus after the driver claimed he was being loud and unruly while arguing over a bus fare. By chance, the bus driver waved over two cops, one of whom happened to be Kraemer.

After the officers escorted him off the bus, threw Burnely to the ground, they attempted to place him in handcuffs. Without warning, as Burnley lay face down on the ground waiting to be cuffed, Kraemer pulled out her service pistol and shot the unarmed man in the back. Much of the incident was captured on video, showing what happened.

As the Journal reports, Burnley, now 28, was hospitalized for 12 days and lost part of a lung. The bullet remains in his body. He sued Kraemer and the Village of Brown Deer in March.

Now, after the taxpayers were held liable in a settlement to the victim, because the victimizer had a badge, taxpayers will also shell out $4,800 a month to her for the rest of her life. And we refer to this process as “justice” in the land of the free.

Another reason for women to stay home and clean house.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

I'm of the opinion that prosecutor are generally not enthusiatic about prosecuting cops. Consider that prosecutors would be at least somewhat familiar with at least most cops in a given station as they are constantly working with them and calling them as witnesses and such. For prosecutors, cops are professional teammates.

Devon Kraemer's father is also a cop.
