An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.

Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.

The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.

The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack. Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request. According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank. http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/05/police-officer-pushes-over-man-in-wheelchair-doesnt-get-fired-4787679/

Oh, but thank god we have government to protect us and look after marginalized people.

my mom is trying to pick a colour for her new wheelchair and me and my dad are telling her to get black and she’s just like “but how will I know if someone is stealing it” and my dad is just like “because you’ll be sitting on the floor” and she slapped him

The Veiled Ghosts of  Livio Scarpella

The work of Italian contemporary artist Livio Scarpella turns good and evil into delicacy.  This group of sculptures, named “Ghosts Underground”, depicts lost souls anguishing beneath the effect of a thin veil.  Scarpella’s interest in this subject was inspired by a trip to the Sansevero Chapel in Naples, home to Antonio Corradini’s “Veiled Christ”.  Before that time, he mostly exhibited paintings for a decade. By mixing influences of Rococo sculptors like Corradini with modern iconography, Scarpella explores a struggle with religious faith.  He couples his “blessed” and “damned” figures with light and dark colored mineral rocks, like amethyst and quartz, inside the chest.  They are hardened hearts that embody the ghost hidden within. Reminiscent of Michelangelo’s The Prisoners, these gentle busts unveil the ghost within. Scarpella takes this idea to a new level in his recent work. His exhibit “Fuori dal Tempo” (“Out of Time”) now showing at Gallery Gomiero in Italy, looks at the theme of sin without repentance.  Undeniably, Scarpella pursues a morbid imagination dominated by smug virtue and natural beauty.

“Fuori dal Tempo” by Livio Scarpella is on view at Gallery Gomiero in Milan, Italy
