Philadelphia Cop Arrested for Beating Woman

A Philadelphia cop was arrested and is facing assault charges after being involved in a physical altercation with a woman.

[__CBS__](http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2015/12/01/philadelphia-police-officer-arrested-charged-with-assaulting-woman/?utm_source=hootsuite) is reporting that officer Joseph Sees, 48, was allegedly involved in a heated spat on Thanksgiving with a woman that resulted in bruises to her face and possibly a broken nose. The incident came to light when neighbors heard “violent fight like sounds” from the home and alerted the police, according to [__Penn Live.__](http://www.pennlive.com/news/2015/12/pa_cop_allegedly_beats_injures.html)

Sees, who is a 17-year veteran, was charged with simple assault and harassment.

Sees was suspended for 30 days by Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey with the goal of having Sees dismissed from the department.

According to [__NBC__](http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Philadelphia-Police-Officer-Sees-Bensalem-Domestic-Assault-Arrest-359643271.html), Sees faces a preliminary hearing in December.

“[Sees] has been a dedicated and well respected member of the Philadelphia Police Department for close to two decades,” said See’s attorney, Fortunato N. Perri.

“This is an unfortunate incident and we hope to resolve this matter favorably for everyone involved,” Perrin added.

The Philadelphia Police Department [__have a page on its website__](http://www.phillypolice.com/programs-services/domestic-violence/) providing detailed information on how to protect yourself from domestic violence.

However, like many police departments throughout the country, they frequently arrest their own for domestic violence, including Philadelphia police officer Joseph Griffin in [__September 2014__](http://www.phillymag.com/news/2014/09/11/philadelphia-cop-joseph-griffin-arrested-domestic-violence/), and Philadelphia police officer Michael Alice in [__July 2015.__](http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Philadelphia-Officer-Charged-in-Assault-on-Girlfriend-311554531.html)

Then there was Philadelphia Police Lieutenant George Holcombe, who had abused the mother of his children for years, prompting numerous complaints from his wife, which apparently did not result in any arrests until he assaulted two fellow cops who were responding to a complaint.

That incident was captured on video, which is not very clear visually because it’s dark, but it captures Holcombe threatening to kill his wife before he ends up handcuffed.

Holcombe was charged with several crimes, then fired from the department before a judge dismissed all charges except disorderly conduct.

But a prosecutor refiled the charges, which led to his suicide in [__March 2015.__](http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/dncrime/Fired-police-lieutenant-found-dead.html?c=r)

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
