Fired Orlando Cop Who Arrested 6-Year-Olds Has Discipline History That Includes Excessive Force, Profiling Claim

The Orlando police officer who was fired Monday for arresting two 6-year-old students at their school has a disciplinary history that includes an incident in which he stunned a trespassing suspect with a Taser five times and an allegation of racial profiling, according to records released Tuesday evening.

Dennis Turner, who retired from the Police Department last year and was working in the department’s Reserve Unit, was disciplined seven times during his 23-year tenure at the Orlando Police Department.
