I SUGGEST THAT HE PAY ALL THE MONEY IN THE LAST LAWSUIT -- NOT JUST HALF OF IT. FIRE HIM AND TRY HIM IN CRIMINAL COURT.

What kind of message does it send to give someone a paid vacation for threatening someone or domestic assault? Is this the same Kenneth Freeman that assaulted the greeter at Walmart in Collegedale? If so, sounds like he he has aggression issues & should not be a cop at all. Paid vacations just reinforce this behavior.

Chattanooga: Grand jury declines to indict Freeman

A Chattanooga police officer accused of shoving a Wal-Mart greeter to the ground on Christmas Eve 2008 will not face criminal charges.

A Hamilton County grand jury on Monday heard evidence of the incident but declined to indict Officer Kenneth Freeman, who faced possible assault charges after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation became involved in the case. Hamilton County Executive Assistant District Attorney Neal Pinkston confirmed Wednesday that the criminal case against Officer Freeman is closed but declined to comment further.

It seems to me that this officer has a serious problem. I can't understand why he's still on the force after his Wal-mart fiasco. Wasn't this the same officer whose son was wanted by the police? I see violence runs in the family. Good role model. well I hope the media keeps up with this character, going to be for some interesting news!!
