Florida hero in blue arrested for stealing money and property from motorists

“Today, the Justice Department announced that a grand jury in the Southern District of Florida charged Miami Dade Police Department (MDPD) Detective William Kostopoulos, 47, with using his law enforcement authority to violate motorists’ civil rights.

The indictment charges Kostopoulos with making traffic stops of three motorists in order to steal their money and property, in violation of the motorists’ rights under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to be free from unreasonable seizures of their property.  The indictment also charges Kostopoulos with making misleading statements in order to prevent the communication of information about his alleged crimes to federal law enforcement officers.

Just a few bad apples? I don’t think so. Especially in Florida there is a culture of corruption.

Remember the next time a cop is accusing you or someone else that it is just as likely that they are actually the crook

But hey, as long as they go home safe, that’s all that matters.

Right?
