Rosenbaum Backlash

After two D.C. mayoral candidates called for the “resignation or firing” of D.C. Fire Chief Adrian H. Thompson due to misconduct in David Rosenbaum’s death, Thompson is now fighting back. The Washington Times reports that the crew of Engine 20 was “charged with failing to follow medical protocols and obstructing the investigation” into Rosenbaum’s fatal beating.

Department spokeswoman Kathryn Friedman would not confirm the charges, but she said Thompson had taken action against the crew.
