The three Tucson police officers who resigned last week over an in-custody death in April were cleared to return to the work almost immediately, and remained on duty for nearly two months before they were notified of their impending dismissal, the lawyer for the police union said.
Attorney Mike Storie says he wants Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus to publicly explain why TPD found no need to put the officers on desk jobs or administrative leave after the incident occurred, yet now says they are unfit for the job.
[They] were allowed to remain on duty after the first internal review into the death of Carlos Adrian Ingram-Lopez, 27.
