Former Kenosha Fire-Fighter and EMT Kerry Poltrock II admitted under oath that he battered his then-wife. Racine’s progressive DA, Patricia Hanson gave Poltrock a break. She charged him with six counts of domestic violence, but dismissed them as a part of an agreement that she frequently does for first-responders. Poltrock was also investigated for molesting one or both of his daughters. A Kenosha Judge recently found the allegations credible although Hanson refused to charge him criminally. He was stripped of all custody and placement with his daughters.
Poltrock was suspended for the domestic violence and also for knowingly working as an EMT when his license was suspended. The City of Kenosha’s City Administrator, John Morrissey intervened in this matter and opened another investigation recently. According to Morrissey, the city intended to fire Poltrock. He chose, however to resign effective October 11, 2022.
The Kenosha Fire Union, Local 414, supported Poltrock until the end. Here are the members of the executive board who ostensibly supported Poltrock until the end and ignored many requests for comment:
The Kenosha News never published one word about Poltrock.
The monster in a fire-truck, is gone.
