Cop who killed man in Kensington could see bail revoked – NBC10 Philadelphia

Philadelphia Police Officer Mark Dial is currently out on bond after being charged with the murder of Eddie Irizarry, who was shot during a traffic stop in the Kensington neighborhood on August 14.

Dial, 27, was charged on September 8 and handed over to police. He immediately posted bail at 10 percent of $500,000 to ensure his release.

However, setting bail may be considered unconstitutional because according to the state constitutionBail for capital crimes – such as murder – or “offenses for which the maximum penalty is life in prison” is usually prohibited.

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office has cited the state constitution in court documents to argue that Dial’s bail release should be revoked.

In fact, prosecutors have already appealed the $1 million bail originally set for Dial, but the bail was lowered to $500,000.

A hearing is now scheduled for Tuesday at 1 p.m. to decide whether or not Dial’s bail will be revoked.

Dial is currently suspended for 30 days for intending to shoot.

Unless that decision changes, Dial would be removed from the city’s police force by the end of this week.

The officer is charged with murder after killing 27-year-old Eddie Jose Irizarry after pulling him over for erratic driving in Kensington. In body camera footage released after the murder, Dial is seen firing multiple shots into a parked vehicle where Irizarry was, just moments after Dial approached the car.

Dial’s last words to Irizarry before pulling the trigger were, “I’m going to fucking shoot you.”

As the bodycam footage shows, Irizarry did not have a chance to speak to officers before his murder.

Police initially reported that Irizarry was armed with knives and lunged at officers before being shot. This information was later found to be false. Cop who killed man in Kensington could see bail revoked – NBC10 Philadelphia
