It's official this morning on the Malden Patch that he got fired. How sad and unjust.

I don't think Officer Killion was ever charged with a crime . I don't understand why he was terminated. Usually when you're a union member there is a progressive discipline process. I don't know how it works for police officers. There is also usually an employees assistance program to help with issues such as addiction to drugs or alcohol and other emotional health issues. All I know is that Officer Killion was a good officer and I don't think he should have been fired I don't know if letters of support from the public who appreciated his service will help him.

You don't know him. His mother died that lives with him and he got married and had a child right away. Grated he should have gone to a doctor for the meds. He made a mistake. He probably was distraught. He has an excellent record as a police officer. He is a great father, husband, neighbor and citizen. How dare you make a judgment about him. We should be getting a petition together to get him back on the force. We need more experienced cops.

What about the Boston police. They have many who have horrific records as officers of the law. And, abuse their wives and girlfriends. The union needs to stand behind this officer who has almost 18 years on the force and no prior anything.

Because of the set of circumstances that Neighbor described makes me believe that Officer Killion should not have been fired Grief and depression does odd things to people including cloud their otherwise good judgment I disagress with Magda If it were you or I, we would not be fired We would get warned or suspended and be forced to make an agreement with our boss or.com pany to get help And Magda, maybe you would get fired because you are hard nosed about others so the same to you. Remember, there were no criminal charges brought I just think he desrves a second chance especially since he was a good officer

Since it was just announced that Officer Killion lost his job, I question if Officer Killion has the right to file a discrimination complaint for wrongful termination based on disability discrimination , major depression and failure to accommodate him especially if he was automatically suspended instead of the employer providing an accomodation that was known or should have been known to the employer or some other form of discipline with the employee agreeing to get treatment such as employee assistance program Here's a person who was down a good path all of his life and then was stricken with loss, grief and obviously severe depression, which had an adverse impact on his major life function, his job, Sometimes people aren't even aware of what is happening to them untl they do something that is repulsive and totally against the grain of their nature I hope Officer Killion fights for his civil rights The Malden PD cant violate employees' rights either while at the same time only point their finger at the employee. I also question if there was some job burn out going on prior to the loss of Officer Killion's mother passing. After all, he was on the job for 18 years and who knows what stressors he had. I think he should go to a reputable doctor, get a solid evaluation to dermine what happened to him factually and then re-evaluate his legal rights if he hasn't already done so.

Sorry I should have elaborated and said that the employer automatically suspended Officer Killion then terminated him without providing an accommodation. I'm curious to know when the last sensitivity training for employee issues was done within the PD .

I have not spoke to Officer Killion since he got suspended because I didn't know what to say. My husband and I just wave. We didn't want to interfere and what can you say really. I am too emotional and want to cry every time I see his wife outside with their beautiful daughter. It's heartwrenching!!!! But like I said in previous posts why wasn't this worked out and why was this guy fired????
