The @AP headline is misleading.

Pantaleo was suspended following the judge's recommendation that he be fired.

There has been no decision on whether to fire him.

Since he was already suspended, he'll likely be fired; they just have to jump through procedural hoops.

@AP Anyways, when are we going to talk about how difficult it is to fire a police officer in this country?

And even when one is fired, how come it's so easy for them to just hop into another jurisdiction and get another policing job?
@AP When de Blasio was pressed on why he hadn't fired Pantaleo at the debate, I actually felt a little bad for him.

He has no power to fire police officers due to union contracts his predecessors signed (not sure why he didn't say that, though).
