Brevard county ” heroes in blue” linked to prostitute who was involved in near fatal shooting of deputy

“Two central Florida deputies were fired after being exposed as clients of a prostitute involved with a police shooting.

A Brevard County officer was critically shot on Aug. 20, while trying to arrest Mary Derossett during a prostitution sting operation. Her uncle, John Derossett opened fire during the arrest, hitting the undercover john, police said. The two were arrested following the gunfight, with Mary facing prostitution charges and John charged with attempted murder.

While investigating Mary’s phone records and text messages, cops found her clients’ names, including the two fired deputies, Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said at a press conference on Sunday morning.

One deputy had been a 14-year veteran with the department, while the other served for almost two years. They both admitted to being Mary’s customers, Ivey said.”

“The two disgraced deputies’ names are being withheld because of Florida’s statutory policies, Ivey said.”

Don’t be fooled because they wear a badge and a uniform

Most of them are no better than the “criminals” that they are after

Special privileges for them and theirs

They can speed if they want to and all they have to do is show their badge

Domestic battery?

Look at Drew Peterson

Cops responded 19 times to his house for domestic battery complaints

Of course he was never arrested

Yeah, they are after these two cops now because it is out in the open

But they still get the special privilege of not having their names released

Does that work for you or I ?

Of course not

Remember who these people really are if you ever sit on a jury

Do you think that every one that Drew Peterson testified against have been exonerated?

They haven’t

Another one of Florida’s finest !

Don’t ever doubt the word of a Florida cop

I am sure that they are telling truth

A few bad apples?

I don’t think so

Check the below

“Here are some facts about the heroes in blue

“The sampling of current officers was comprised of 2,698 fulltime officers from twenty-one different states. A total 1,116 of the 2,657 officers asked to complete a confidential questionnaire, did so. This equates to a response rate of 42 percent. An additional forty-one officers provided confidential interviews. The following facts were revealed.

  • In response to “Please describe the first time you witnessed misconduct by another employee but took no action,” 46 percent (532) advised they had witnessed misconduct by another employee, but concealed what they knew.
  • In response to the question “At the time of the incident occurred, what did you think would happen if you revealed what had taken place?” the five reasons listed most often were: I would be ostracized (177 times); the officer who committed the misconduct would be disciplined or fired (88 times); I would be fired from my job (73 times); I would be “blackballed” (59 times); the administration would not do anything even if I reported it. (54 times)
  • 73 percent of the individuals pressuring officers to keep quiet about the misconduct were leaders.
  • Eight percent (40) of the 509 officers who admitted to intentionally withholding the information about officer misconduct were upper administrators. The upper administrators of the average American police department comprises only five percent of the agency.
  • Of the 532 who confessed they had participated in the Code of Silence, 252 were pressured to keep quiet by the officer(s) who committed the misconduct and 118 felt pressure from uninvolved officers. The remaining 162 officers advised they covered up the incident even though they were not pressured.
  • Excessive use of force was the most frequent situation over which the Code of Silence occurs, with 217 were excessive use of force

Police deaths at historic lows, safer than being a bartender

“Despite what the media would have you believe, 2015 is actually the safest year for police officers in 20 years. Meanwhile, police killings of citizens are at a 40-year high.

While citizens and social justice groups seeking to curtail the trend of growing police brutality and state-sanctioned murder, police supporters around the country are seeking to debunk these reports with a combination of marketing, cherry-picked statistics, and misplaced nationalism formerly reserved for members of the military.

The following graphics combined show how serious the problem of growing police violence has become, and explain the false-narrative that has been constructed to convince America to ignore the problem”

“With the rise in the reports of people being killed by police, much has been made of the danger police face every day in the line of duty. It has become the easy explanation in an attempt to justify the erosion of civil rights in the name of job safety for those who “protect and serve.” But a recent report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that last year almost 4,600 Americans were killed while working, but only 79 were police officers. That figure places police officers outside of the top 15 most dangerous jobs in America, behind garbage collectors, taxi drivers, and bartenders.”

If you don’t believe it, just watch this video

Not only are they safer than bartenders, but look what happens when they commit crimes

“When police are charged with misconduct or the killing of citizens, there is a tremendous double standard as to how they are prosecuted, and sentenced. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, only 1/3rd of charges against police lead to a conviction, while the conviction rate for the general population rate is more than double that. Additionally, of the officers actually convicted, only 12 percent are sent to prison, while the rest of the country has an incarceration rate 400% higher upon conviction.”

Heroes in blue : 12 Florida troopers caught bilking overtime

“A dozen Florida Highway Patrol troopers from Tallahassee to Miami were fired, forced to retire or otherwise disciplined after an in-house investigation into whether they were billing the agency for hours they spent working from home, eating at restaurants and visiting girlfriends and relatives.

The disciplinary action came as part of a probe into the agency’s Statewide Overtime Action Response program, which is designed to beef up traffic enforcement in high-priority areas, including Interstate 10 in Leon County. Troopers, who are paid time and a half to patrol the areas, are expected to aggressively enforce traffic laws when working SOAR.”

“Several of the troopers were longtime veterans of the agency, with 30-plus years of service.

  • Troopers reported SOAR overtime while visiting their parents, wives or girlfriends at their homes and workplaces.
  • Troopers claimed regular and overtime hours while they were at home and restaurants.
  • Troopers failed to radio in that they were going off or back on duty while taking meal breaks at restaurants.
  • Troopers failed to activate their Automatic Vehicle Locators, designed to track their movements, and in some cases deactivated them.

Great guys huh? These are the same people that a judge will believe because they are sworn officers of the court

But in the end the judge doesn’t really care

All he cares about is the system working because that is how revenue is generated

And without revenue he/she doesn’t have a job

Remember that the next time you sit in judgement of someone accused of something

It is just as likely that the cop doing the accusing is the one who is actually the criminal

Another Virginia cop charged with murder

Another Virginia police officer has been indicted for murder in the shooting death of an unarmed man, this time in Portsmouth, which appears to be quickly gaining infamy as a hotbed of police misconduct. On September 3rd Officer Stephen Rankin of the Portsmouth Police Department was indicted for first degree murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony for the death of William Chapman II. According to a leaked autopsy report, 18-year-old Chapman had been shot in the face and chest from a distance, not during a physical struggle, as Rankin told investigators.

Stephen Rankin's First Degree Murder Indictment

Stephen Rankin’s First Degree Murder Indictment

On April 22nd Officer Rankin encountered Chapman in a Walmart parking lot while responding to a report of suspected shoplifting. There is no video of the incident, but according to the Portsmouth Police Department, there was a struggle between the two men, during which Rankin shot and killed Chapman. Unidentified police officers performed CPR on Chapman, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. “Scuff-like abrasions on the 18-year-old’s face and chest indicated he was rolled on to his front, cuffed, then rolled back again, after being fatally shot,” but there is no indication of whether this was done before or after CPR was initiated.”

A few bad apples?

Or just  bunch of power hungry psychopaths?

How many times will people have to hear stories of ruthless beatings, shootings, lying and corruption before they realize that this has become endemic?

A few good apples maybe, but even then that is becoming less and less because they don’ want to be around the corruption

This is going to have to come to an end and if they don’t don’t end it from within

We will have to end it from without

We are after all the ones who charter and fund these agencies

Florida state trooper sentenced for selling accident info to tow truck drivers

A former state trooper who sold accident reports for thousands of dollars was sentenced Thursday to more than four years in prison.

Kirk Chambers, who resigned as a Florida Highway Patrol trooper in March, pleaded guilty in May to an extortion conspiracy charge in Miami federal court.

Chambers, who worked the north end of Miami-Dade County, moonlighted for years as a corrupt source of information on car accidents for “pirate” tow-truck drivers, according to federal prosecutor Anthony Lacosta.

In his plea agreement, Chambers admitted that he schemed with a local towing operator, Guillermo “Tony” Sepulveda, to sell hundreds of confidential accident reports for $6,200 to a fictitious “Russian chiropractor” in a sting operation run by the FBI.

Chambers, who became a state trooper in 2004, was convicted of accepting $5,000 in bribes in the undercover operation. Chambers made more than $48,000 a year as a trooper.

Sepulveda, accused of pocketing $1,200 in the alleged scheme with Chambers, also pleaded guilty in May. He was sentenced to three years in prison earlier this month.

Florida law prohibits the release of crash reports to third parties before a 60-day period. Providing access to such reports within that time frame is unlawful for the purpose of soliciting business, such as towing, auto repairs or medical care.

Chambers and Sepulveda were arrested in April as part of an FBI investigation into Miami-Dade tow-truck operators suspected of paying bribes to police officers, public service aides and FHP troopers “to steer illicit business in their direction,” according to a criminal affidavit written by FBI special agent Donald Morin.

During the probe, investigators have learned that “corrupt” local police officers, aides and troopers “can earn money by misusing their official position to assist ‘pirate’ wreckers,” Morin wrote in the affidavit.”

Wow, Florida’s finest sure can innovate when it comes to corruption

You shouldn’t really be surprised though, seeing how they are always innovating with their testimony in court

Florida just seems to keep getting worse

And now they have added even more room for corruption as their cadre has grown

Florida fish and wildlife commission has now been given law enforcement powers

More people to compete for those corruption dollars!

They are now doing traffic stops on the highway in addition to the parks

In the parks they are pulling people over claiming that they smell the odor of burnt marijuana and that gives them probable cause to search

Now they have been released on the general population

Way to go Florida you didn’t have enough corrupt thugs as it was

Video of unarmed man with his hands up being shot by 2 cops

Now this is an actual case of “Hands up don’t shoot”

They actually wait until he raises his hands before shooting him down like a dog

Do they think that doing more of this will make the back lash less?

The #Blacklivesmatter crowd needs to jump on this one with both feet

They could use the “Hands up don’t shoot”narrative and if they dropped race from the equation have a lot more support

Orlando Florida cop caught on video beating homeless man bloody

“Video has surfaced showing an Orlando cop beating a homeless man bloody as he tries to defend himself in a vacant lot near the corner of Ossie Street and Parramore Avenue on Wednesday.

The footage shows 44-year-old Terre Johnson mounted by officer James Wilson who pins him to the ground, grabs his head and grinds it into the pavement as the man attempts to ward off the cop.

Bystanders who can be heard on the video protesting the officers actions say the attack was completely unprovoked and that Wilson started the fight.”

Florida is a great place to be cop. That is if you like to lie , cheat, steal and beat people half to death.

Every single day more than one of Florida’s finest is arrested for some type of corruption

And every day those very same cops sit in the court room and give testimony against citizens

It’s their word against yours and they are ” Sworn officers of the court”

Trust me, they would never lie

(That’s why they have a word for it “Testi-lying”)

It has gotten so bad that the old adages”A few bad apples” no longer applies

Now it is a couple of good ones are left and they can’t wait to retire out
