The Philadelphia Police Department has reassigned a South Philly police captain who came under fire for his handling of the Christopher Columbus statue demonstrations in Marconi Plaza.
The move is one of several command-level changes in the department amid the third week of protests over police accountability that followed the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
PPD Capt. Louis Campione was caught on camera arguing with a man taping the protests and drew criticism over other videos showing a group of armed neighbors assaulting protestors. Police spokesperson Sekou Kinebrew confirmed that the 43-year veteran was reassigned from command of South Philly’s 1st Police District on Monday.
