GERMANTOWN — Germantown Police Officer James Kensinger has been fired.
Thankfully a step in the right direction.
His employment was terminated last Thursday.
The spokesperson said this decision was made by the police department and is supported by the city.
Way back in April, Kensinger was arrested by Memphis Police officers and charged with aggravated rape, aggravated assault and domestic assault.
In April? What the heck took this so long? He’s been on paid vacation this whole time?
Damn, how much tax money was wasted on paying a reported rapist vacation time?
The City of Germantown suspended Kensinger, pending the criminal investigation.
The victim went to the Rape Crisis Center to report the crime according to an affidavit of complaint.
According to reports, Officer Kensinger yanked the woman inside of a house, ripped the clothes off of her body, and forcefully penetrated her, raping her as she begged and screamed “stop!”
A nurse who specializes in treating victims of sexual assault said that wounds were found on the woman’s private areas.
“I mean I think that it’s kind of shocking,” said a neighbor.
“I mean if someone who’s supposed to be protecting us–to go and rape somebody. It doesn’t make any sense to me at all.”
In 2005 Officer Kensinger was assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division.
Kensinger is currently free on $70,000 bond.
If you live in the area make sure you bring attention to the situation so he is never in uniform again.
Only three out of every 100 rapists will ever spend even a single day in prison, according to a new analysis by RAINN of Justice Department data.
The other 97 will walk free, facing no consequences for the violent felony they have committed.
Because rapists tend to be serial criminals, this leaves communities across the nation at risk of predators. Again, please stay armed and protect yourself.
The 3% that do get convicted get to spend about an average or 6-7 years in jail.
I bet this ex police officer gets a slap on the hand IF THAT.
I bet Kensinger will not spend one day in jail, he might even be hired on another department somewhere in a few years and strike again.
We see this all the time.
Police officers will get removed from a department and another one will accept them back in.
There should be a point in time where you just are not allowed to ever where the badge again.
With ultimate power there is ultimate responsibility.
