JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Live Oak police sergeant was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges after federal investigators uncovered dozens of obscene images on his patrol car computer, according to the FBI.
Kyle Adam Kirby, 35, of Live Oak, was arrested at the Live Oak Police Department and is charged with possession of child pornography. Kirby faces up to 10 years in federal prison if convicted.
According to a 66-page federal complaint, FBI agents and investigators from other agencies raided Kirby’s home Oct. 22 in connection to an undercover online child pornography investigation. They found no computers at the home, according to the FBI.
The same morning, however, the Live Oak police chief gave agents permission to search the computer inside Kirby’s patrol car, where they found 87 images that “either depicted children engaged in sexually explicit conduct or that had titles” suggesting they contained child pornography, the FBI said in a release.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – An officer with IMPD was sentenced in court on Wednesday.
Justin Beaton, was sentenced on Wednesday to serve two years on home detention and one year of probation for criminal recklessness.
According to IMPD, in Feb. 2015, Beaton was arrested and charged with attempted murder, domestic battery in the physical presence of a child, pointing a firearm and obstruction of justice.
IMPD suspended Beaton without pay, pending his termination from the department. Beaton was a 10 year veteran with the department.
Court records show Beaton’s live-in girlfriend, initially told authorities that Beaton hit her with a bed frame he was supposedly moving in August of 2014. In Feb. of 2015, she went back to authorities recanting that story and claiming that Beaton shot her through a glass door with what she thought were blank rounds.”
“An on-duty Georgia State Patrol trooper was driving 91mph in a 55mph zone just five seconds before slamming into another vehicle, killing two teenage girls, Kylie Lindsay, 17 and Isabella Chinchilla, 16.
Trooper Anthony J Scott struck the 2005 Nissan Sentra – carrying Lindsey, Chincilla, Dillon Lewis Wall, 18, and Benjamin Alan Finken, 17 – when their car was attempting a turn from US 27 onto Holly Springs Road in Carroll County, investigators said.
Trooper Anthony J Scott was fired after it was determined that he slowed from 91mph to 68mph just before the crash that killed 17-year-old Kylie Lindsey and 16-year-old Isabella Chinchilla, of Paulding County, on September 26. No charges have been brought against the officer pending a Georgia State Patrol investigation. Prosecutors have not yet decided whether a grand jury should even consider bringing any charges.
Authorities say that Scott was on patrol, but was not answering a call or running the car’s emergency lights or siren when he slammed into the back of the Nissan at about 11.30pm.
‘At the time of the wreck, he was on no kind of emergency call, en route to no accident, not trying to stop a vehicle,’ Capt. Mark Perry told WSB-TV. ‘Turns out he was running at a high rate of speed through this intersection in a territory that’s he’s familiar with and should have known the dangers that potentially exist.’
It took the department six days to arrive at a decision that resulted in Scott’s dismissal.
He had been with Georgia State Patrol since 2011, new information has come to light that suggests he was a repeat offender. He had been responsible for two crashes prior to the tragic accident on Saturday.
Captain Mark Perry, Scott’s superior, commented that the prior instances did not have anything to do with speed and/or reckless driving; however, “misjudged clearance” was what caused the accidents.
He received a verbal warning for the first one and a letter of instruction for the subsequent incident.
Charleston, SC — The owner of a Charleston small business decided he was going to show that cops are not above the law.
In this video, Chad Walton of CWR Racing hooks his winch to a police cruiser that was parked illegally behind his business, with every intention of towing it to his facility. According to the posted sign, once an illegally parked vehicle is hooked for towing, it costs $250 to unhook. There is also a charge of $30 for every day the vehicle sits in the facility.
“This police car is illegally parked here. I’ve gotten a couple of tickets downtown, had my car booted, towed, um, all that good stuff. So we’re going to go ahead and return the favor. As soon as we hook up to it…just like they do to everybody in downtown Charleston…$250 before I disconnect, or we’re going to go ahead and tow it inside our facility over there.”
Mr. Walton points out that there are guns and other gear in the trunk of the police cruiser which could be stolen.
“If anybody would like a free handgun, a couple of shotguns, some lights, bulletproof vests and what not…all in the trunk of this car here. We’re doing a public service by pulling this car out of this dangerous neighborhood.
Mr. Walton and another person witnessed the cop park the car, get out and put his patrol belt into the trunk, then get into the car with another woman and drive off, saying they were going “car shopping.”
Within 20 minutes, six police show up on the scene. Car after car can be seen pulling into the lot, as if Mr. Watson was a suspect.

“As the officer was walking from the home to his patrol car, a woman a few houses away called out to him, saying her sister and the girl’s mother, Andrea Ellis, had cut herself.
The officer was at the doorway when a dog charged at him, Alex-Bouzounis said.
The officer fired once, missing the animal but striking the girl in the right leg. It was unclear whether the girl was hit directly or by a ricochet. The officer has not been identified.
Andrea Ellis was taken to OhioHealth Grant Medical Center for treatment of the cut.
Gary Parsley II said the officer was following up with him about Parsley’s being struck by a car a couple weeks ago. When the girl’s aunt called out to the officer, the officer walked over and Parsley returned to his house, when he heard a shot.
Neighbors say the officer walked back to his patrol car after the shooting.
“He seemed a little disoriented, like he was really bothered,” said Norman Jones, who called the police after hearing the shot. Columbus and Whitehall police arrived at the scene shortly afterward.
Neighbors say Ellis came out of the house saying her daughter had been shot.
“Family created a Facebook page for Ava. Her mother Andrea wrote her account of the incident in a post. She names the police officer who shot her child, Jonathan Thomas, and says that, as soon as he saw the dog, who was eight to 10 feet away from him, he fired — in the direction of her eight-year-old niece and Ava.
“Ava was crying and asking if she was going to die as her aunt Brandie, cousin Madison, big brother Clayton and little sister Mia watched crying in fear,” Andrea recalled.
Officer Thomas claimed that the dog charged at him, but Andrea’s sister Brandie denies this, and says the pet was in the house when he shot at it.
Andrea also revealed that the cop never apologized or asked if the four-year-old was okay and immediately left after shooting her. Neighbors have corroborated this account. Ava’s mother wrote:
“Officer Thomas then told my sister to stop yelling at him and walked back to his vehicle. Officer Thomas never said sorry, never said it was an accident, never said that he called for help or was going to call for help, never asked if Ava was ok, and never asked if he could check on Ava. Officer Thomas went back to his vehicle and started to pull away. My neighbors have even verified that he started pulling away before any help was there. Officer Thomas shot Ava and left knowing he shot Ava and not knowing the condition she was in.”
“A Lee County Sheriff’s Office corporal who resigned earlier this year after an internal affairs investigation found he lied on his timecard has been arrested on several counts of grand theft and official misconduct.
Former Cpl. Michael Schlosser, 46, was arrested at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday on one count of grand theft and seven counts of official misconduct for events dating to May and June this year, All are third degree felonies charges.
Schlosser, who had his first appearance in court Wednesday and remains in jail, faces $5,000 bail on each count. His arraignment is scheduled for Monday.”
“The internal affairs report said Schlosser charged an automotive auction business for 13 hours and 22 minutes of security detail work for which he was not present, that’s a total of $1,362 the sheriff’s office accuse him of stealing.
Between March 2014 and July 2015, he billed Manheim SWFL Auto Auction for 159 hours of security work.
Seven times between May 13 and June 24 Schlosser showed up to his detail late and left early but still charged the business for a full day’s work.
On June 24, Schlosser stopped by a lieutenant’s office for small talk while he was supposed to be at his detail. When the lieutenant asked Schlosser if he had permission to be late, Schlosser replied that he was “killing time.”
Sgt. Andrea Fisher said in her internal affairs report that Schlosser’s actions left him with five offenses, including conduct unbecoming of an officer, falsifying official documents and untruthfulness.”
I guess he must not have been well liked
Why would I say that?
Because Lee county is notorious for corruption
Had he been part of the old boy system, I’m sure they would have looked the other way
Google “Lee county Florida deputy” and see what pops up
These guys are heroes in the truest sense
You have Lieutenants charged with grand larceny
A deputy that beats and robs someone on duty
Another slob who is so lazy he just ignores a 911 call
Yet another one who forced an inmate to have sex with him
We even have one female officer who was caught up in an on duty sex scandal fatally shooting her cop boy friend
This isn’t just a few bad apples
This is systemic and endemic corruption
Again, Schlosser must have been on some bodies bad side to get taken down
Want to come to Florida?
Well you better hope that one of these degenerates don’t decide to pull you or one of yours over
“In the early hours of July 30, Napolitano responded to a robbery at a Spinx store, 3815 White Horse Road. Deputies used K-9 units to track the suspect and found him under a pickup truck at a nearby used car dealership on White Horse Road. The suspect, later identified as Brian Christopher Mickens, refused to comply with commands, and one of the dogs bit him, Loftis said.
Napolitano requested EMS to treat a dog bite on Mickens’ lower right leg. After Mickens was treated at the hospital, Napolitano told him it was time to go to jail, Loftis said.
Napolitano requested help because Mickens was uncooperative and threatened the deputy and hospital staff. Mickens was in handcuffs when the deputy and two GHS police officers tried to place him in a wheelchair, Loftis said.
At one point, Napolitano shoved Mickens in the chest and punched him twice in the face, Loftis said.”
“As a police employee, Daniel Holtzclaw has for years subsisted on extorting those in his community. While many, per decades of indoctrination, overlook that specific transgression (though that is definitely changing as more people become aware of that systemic double standard), it is his other rights-violating actions that as of late, have drawn the ire of many. Specifically, that he engaged in rape, sexual battery, forcible oral sodomy, incident exposure, burglary, and stalking while he donned a badge.
Holtzclaw – called “the Claw” by his friends, a nickname he was given when he played college football – is now being held with a 5-million-FRN bail.
Holtzclaw is charged with four counts of sexual battery, four counts of indecent exposure, burglary, stalking, four counts of forcible oral sodomy, and two counts of rape. Fifty-five witnesses are listed in the court documents…
According to a probable cause affidavit included in the charging documents, Holtzclaw stopped a woman walking in the area of Northeast 14th and Jordan on April 24. He located a crack pipe in her property. Instead of arresting her he allegedly took her home, forced her to perform oral sex and then raped her, making the statement, “This is better than the county,” referring to the jail.
Anthony Douglas, president of the Oklahoma NAACP told KOCO they plan to ask the U.S. attorney general to review the case and elevate the charges to hate crimes because the alleged victims are African-American.
In a classic attempt to circle the wagons, friends and family of “the Claw” started a Facebook page and GoFundMe campaign. As ostracism is important, feel free to drop by there and share your thoughts.
The former has as it’s banner image a quote from the head of the Oklahoma City Fraternal Order of Police John George, who notes that their outfit “stands firmly by its officers until a full investigation is completed.” Such is the norm in the thin blue line culture
“OKLAHOMA CITY – A former Oklahoma City police officer, who is awaiting trial on sexual assault charges, may end up costing the city hefty legal fees.
Last year, Daniel Holtzclaw was placed on administrative leave after several women accused him of rape.
Holtzclaw is charged with 36 counts of rape, sexual battery, indecent exposure and forcible oral sodomy after several women came forward, claiming the officer assaulted them while they were in custody or inside his police car.
He was fired from the force in January.
One of those women he’s accused of assaulting is suing both Holtzclaw and the city in a civil lawsuit.
The attorney representing the former officer in the civil suit is now asking the city to pay for his defense with taxpayer dollars.
The city council will consider that request next week.
And to top it all off he is given default hero status because he “puts his life on the line every day”
Even though being a bartender is a more dangerous job
Does it seem that I have something against cops?
At least the crooked ones
The ones who lie, abuse, steal, give false testimony, have child porn, rape women, burn children’s genitalia with blow dryers, do drive by shootings, drive drunk and try to badge out of it, murder, rape children,abduct people, shake people down on the roadside and so on
If you go through my stories here you will find all of those things including links to 11 cases of child rape and porn that happened in a short few week period
Again, Do I have something against cops?
No , not the good ones
But these days they seem like they are pretty few and fa between
“MIAMI (CBSMiami) — State agents arrested a South Miami police officer for allegedly having inappropriate interactions with underage girls.
South Miami cop Joe Mendez walked out of the Broward County Jail on $42,000 bond around 8 p.m. Tuesday. The officer spent hours at the jail being booked in, having his mugshot taken and awaiting bond. When he saw our cameras he had lots to say about the allegations that he possessed child pornography and contributed to the delinquency of a minor. Specifically, he had a message for the community.
“They know who I am,” he said. “They know I didn’t do anything.”
But the Florida Department of Law Enforcement says Mendez, the former coordinator of the South Miami Police Explorers Program for young people 14 to 20 years old, did lots wrong.
They accuse him of buying alcohol for a pair of underage female cadets, asking them to play truth or dare with him and asking to show him their private parts. Mendez denied all of it.
“Detective were you playing truth or dare with underage girls?” a reporter asked.
“I have no comment,” he replied.
FDLE says the allegations came to light by a fellow South Miami Police officer. We asked Mendez if he believes there’s a vendetta against him.
“What do you guys think?” he replied.
Authorities said a complaint of misconduct from a fellow officer in June 2014 triggered an investigation into allegations he had inappropriate interactions with a number of female cadets in the program and that the interactions may have been sexual in nature. He is also accused of buying alcohol for the girls.”
