Officers Accused of Abusing Children Must be Fired

Target: Joseph Cafarelli, Revere City Police Chief

Goal: Fire police officers accused of child abuse.

Two police officers are accused of abusing two young children who belonged to one of them. Police Detective Marco Garcia, who is married with a child of his own, reportedly abused his girlfriend’s 6-year-old child. Officer Angela Halcovich, the mother of the two victims, allegedly beat her 6-year-old and 8-year-old son. According to reports, Halcovich stated that for the last two years, her sons were the victims of Garcia’s mental abuse and control.

The officers have already been released on bail, and Hacovich was arraigned on the two counts of assault. Instead of being fired, they were placed on administrative leave, but Garcia has resigned from the police department. Child abuse should not be tolerated, especially by members of the police force. It seems these police officers are being treated as if they’re above the law, considering they were only placed on administrative leave and not fired. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that these officers be permanently fired from working in a position of authority.


Dear Chief Cafarelli,

Two police officers are accused of child abuse. The victims, between six and eight years of age, belonged to the female officer. The male officer reportedly struck one of the children with a belt repeatedly.

Despite these serious accusations, both officers seem to be escaping justice as they’ve been allowed to post bail and were only placed on administrative leave. These police officers are supposed to serve and protect, and it appears that they failed miserably. We, the undersigned, demand that they be fired immediately and banned from ever serving in any position of authority.

    be nice to children

  2. Anne Moeller says:

    ANY person who abuses a child MUST be punished in the MOST way- jail them with an inmate who will abuse them in the same and even More way that they have done to innocent children!!!!

  3. Timothy Wood says:

    When they are found guilty, not accused, I will sign. We still live in a country where we are innocent until proven guilty. A leave is appropriate until proven guilty.

    My cousin was abused by a fellow officer {of my uncle} in Marin county back in the early 60’s. He threatened my cousin into silence.Apparently he was abusing several children.One child stepped forward. When the word got out the abuser fled, finally shot himself.
