SSCC Honorable Mention–Chalfont

A Chalfont police officer was not shot by a group of assailants as he claimed, but instead staged the shooting himself, according to authorities.

Jon Cousin, 30, of New Britain Township was lying when he said he was shot in the chest while investigating a suspicious vehicle at a swim club about 3:16 a.m. Monday morning, they said.

This is certainly better than many of the other attempts by officers to “be a hero”.  Thankfully he has been arrested and charged though he is currently only on administrative leave.

SSCC HM: Jon Cousin

Because sometimes you want to go out looking like a hero.

    My question is how did this guy get through the psyche eval???

      [snark]Very carefully?[/snark]

      Honestly I’m not sure. There was a note in the article he was suffering from depression as well as other issues at the time. You would think the psyche eval would catch it. Then again it may just be hand waving to make us proles feel better.
