A veteran Philadelphia police officer was arrested last night after he allegedly beat his fiance with a handgun during a domestic dispute. Police were called to Waterview Lane near Woodhaven Road in Northeast Philadelphia shortly after 10 p.m., when an argument between the cop, Talib Muhammad, and his 47-year-old fiancee turned violent, said police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore. Muhammad struck his fiancee in the face with a handgun repeatedly and then fled, Vanore said. The victim was treated at Frankford-Torresdale Hospital for a laceration over her left eye. Police eventually caught up with Muhammad, 44, on I-95 near Washington Avenue. He was carrying two handguns, although it was unclear if the weapons were police-issued. Vanore said Muhammad, a 13-year veteran assigned to the narcotics field unit, was charged with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and possessing an instrument of crime. He will be suspended from the force for 30 days with the intent to dismiss, Vanore said. [LINK]

  1. I know the woman and it hurts me to my heart that the only punishment that this guy is getting is desk duty. As a young woman interested in law school and in american justice who witnessed first hand last year cops blatantly lie on a young african american male with no record because they beat him; it infuriates me that while we are told no man is above the law; various occurence shows that statement to be a myth. To conceal her info, i will be limited in my comments however i will say thit is eveident that they protect their own while they are employed; however once they retire or go out on workman's comp they revert back to the lives of regular citizens in which their lives are minor concerns in the eyes of some employed in law enforcement. So the next time you ask why won't or don't people trust the police? This is because the mission of to protect & serve has transformed and turned into a mission to harass and embarass. Not all that serves in these fields are bad, but rules and legal issues, or the lack thereof allow what we used to know as neighborhood heroes the choice of being the superhero or the alterego thereof.
