Police officer sentenced in rape case

Posted by Deborah Lee Jarrett

“LIMA — Stripped of his badge and the honor that goes with the job, a fired Lima police officer learned Thursday his freedom also would be taken away for the next 14 years for raping a 16-year-old girl.

Justin Bentz, 28, was sentenced to prison for the June 11 rape at a home west of Lima where he lived with a roommate. In addition, he will have to register and report in as a sex offender when he is released every 90 days for the rest of his life.

Bentz sat stone-faced throughout the hearing and had nothing to say based on the advice of his attorney to remain silent. An appeal of the decision is being planned.

Before Judge David Cheney sentenced Bentz, the judge said he had tremendous respect for police and the job officers do. Cheney also said police probably are more criticized today by various groups, sometimes unfairly, than during any time in history. However, the judge said the Bentz case is not one of those. Cheney said this was a clear case of a crime by an officer.

“He was an adult over and above being a police officer,” Cheney said. “This girl looked like she was 12 years old and to somehow indicate one was mistaken about her age is on the preposterous side.”

Besides Bentz’ position as a police officer, Cheney said he was especially troubled by the fact that just hours before Bentz raped the girl, he attended a law enforcement class educating him about sexual assault, the effects of alcohol in such cases, and the pitfalls of prosecuting such cases.”


“Stripped of his badge and the honor that goes with it”

What a joke that statement is

If that were the case this website would not exist

Neither would the Cato institute police misconduct site which logs hundreds of incidents a month

Or Cop block which now has chapters in every state

Or PINAC (Photography is not a crime)

Or Bad cop no donut

Or countless other police abuse sites


“In a yearlong investigation of sexual misconduct by U.S. law enforcement, The Associated Press uncovered about 1,000 officers who lost their badges in a six-year period for rape, sodomy and other sexual assault; sex crimes that included possession of child pornography; or sexual misconduct such as propositioning citizens or having consensual but prohibited on-duty intercourse.”

“The number is unquestionably an undercount because it represents only those officers whose licenses to work in law enforcement were revoked, and not all states take such action. California and New York — with several of the nation’s largest law enforcement agencies — offered no records because they have no statewide system to decertify officers for misconduct. And even among states that provided records, some reported no officers removed for sexual misdeeds even though cases were identified via news stories or court records.”


Read the below and tell me that you get honor by putting on a badge

Just remember the guy with the badge and the gun who pulls you over or shows up at your house may or may not be one of these scumbags

The badge means nothing more than power over you

This is from a study by The National Institute of Ethics:

“The sampling of current officers was comprised of 2,698 full time 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.

To serve; Drinks that is.Florida deputy passed out drunk behind the wheel

“A Highlands County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested overnight for DUI.

Deputy James West was found stopped in the middle of the road “slumped over the steering wheel” on State Road 66 on the evening of April 14.

Sergeant Ahrens found him passed out in his truck with the truck running. He got West’s attention after many attempts and determined that West was under the extreme influence of alcohol.

Another deputy was called to help as it was determined that Field Sobriety Tests needed to be administered. After the tests, it was determined that West was under the influence and his normal facilities were impaired.

West refused to submit to a breath test. ”

To serve: Cop sentenced to 9 Yrs. for stealing from drug dealers

Posted by Deborah Lee Jarrett

“AKRON, Ohio (AP) – A former police supervisor in suburban Cleveland has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison on charges related to stealing thousands of dollars from suspected drug dealers.

A judge on Tuesday also ordered East Cleveland Sgt. Torris Moore to pay $37,000 in restitution

Moore pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy, false statements and other charges. Two detectives she supervised also were charged.

Authorities say the three officers conducted illegal searches and falsified search warrant affidavits while stealing from suspects and compromising legitimate cases. The officers were accused of reporting just a portion of money seized during drug raids.”


How about that for heroes?

Thank God that they all went home safe every night

Think that any cases these scumbags have brought are being thrown out?

Pretty doubtful

These sworn officers of the court have put plenty of people in jail

The next time you look at a cop remember these heroes

And wonder if they are cut from the same cloth

Scumbag child molesting cop now charged with witness tampering

Posted by Deborah Jarrett

“The world’s smallest police station just got a little lonelier, as a Florida cop working for the panhandle town of Carrabelle got nailed with a second round of felony criminal charges.

Now, the Florida cop is facing life in jail, after his state’s top law enforcement agency the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) added a felony witness tampering charge to the serious sex crime allegations 49-year old Glenn Darius Hampton May was already defending for child pornography and sexual battery with a minor between the ages of 12-18.

State authorities announced that their investigation showed May was communicating with the victim in his sexual battery case, which is being prosecuted by the state attorney Willie Meggs in Tallahassee.

FDLE agents believe he coached the victim by telling her what to say when interviewed by law enforcement.

So they charged May with first degree felony witness tampering, which is punishable by up to life in prison.

Carrabelle is best known as an idyllic beach town and fishing village, and isn’t exactly a hotbed of crime, but is famous in police circles for having the world’s smallest police station, which has been stationed along scenic Highway 98 since 1963.”

Florida Cop Nailed With Felony Witness Tampering Charge While Defending Underage Sex Crime Allegations

Below is the original story from 2015 :

What a hero

Molesting a child isn’t enough

He has to come back and try to control the kid

What is wrong with someone who wants to wear handcuffs on their belt?

What is wrong with someone who wants to control people for a living?

He is a hero, right?

Thank God he comes home safe at night

Every day he risks his life to keep us safe

Every day he puts on that badge and gun

Every day this sworn officer of the court keeps us safe

Either that or he lies,cheats and steals and molests children



“A Carrabelle police officer was arrested Thursday morning, Dec. 17 for sexual battery on a child, and possession of child porn.

Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, along with Carrabelle Police Department and Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Glenn Darius Hampton May, 49, of Carrabelle, on one count of sexual battery on a child over 12 years old, but under age 18, and four counts of possession of child pornography.

May began with the department on a part-time basis Jan. 7, 2013, and was hired on as fulltime beginning July 15, 2013.

In October, FDLE agents began investigating May at the request of Carrabelle Police Chief Gary Hunnings after he received an allegation May was having sex with an underage female. May has been on administrative leave since that time.

“I immediately contacted FDLE when I learned of this allegation,” said Hunnings. “May’s actions are unacceptable and appalling for anyone, especially an officer of the law. Now that an arrest has been made, I am moving swiftly to terminate May from our police department.”

May was arrested at his home in Carrabelle and booked into the Franklin County Jail on a $200,000 bond. The case will be prosecuted by the Office of the State Attorney, 2nd Judicial Circuit.”

Hero of the year award: Cop charged with 40 counts including stalking, menacing,tampering and sexual battery


“The Richland County Grand Jury indicted Mansfield Police Officer Michael Garn on 40 counts of criminal charges Thursday – 25 of which were felonies.

Garn, 41, was indicted for 17 counts of unauthorized use of Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway, 14 counts of dereliction of duty, burglary, trespass into a habitation, attempted gross sexual imposition, attempted sexual battery, menacing by stalking, two counts of tampering with evidence, sexual battery and public indecency.

The indictments come after an almost three-month investigation by detectives at the Mansfield Police Department into Garn’s behavior. Deputy Chief Keith Porch said Garn was put on administrative leave Nov. 26 pending a criminal investigation after a complaint of possible misconduct was received by police administration from other detectives and other officers within the Mansfield Police Department. The complaint initiated the investigation.

“The initial complaint came in of how the officer was conducting himself while on duty, which stemmed from inappropriate relationships with females along with an allegation of destruction of evidence,” said Porch. “As detectives were looking into that, it mushroomed into other areas.”

The dates of the incidents detailed in the indictments span from June 2012 through September 2014. The most serious charge against Garn is burglary, a second-degree felony, stemming from an alleged incident that took place between June 1, 2014 and Sept. 15, 2014. Garn is charged with three third-degree felonies, two counts of tampering with evidence and one count of sexual battery.

Garn is also charged with three fourth-degree felonies and 18 fifth-degree felonies, 17 of which involve the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway, an electronic information network used by law enforcement.

In addition to the 25 felonies, Garn is charged with 14 misdemeanors of the second degree for dereliction of duty, and one misdemeanor of the third degree for public indecency.”


Here is the latest update :

MANSFIELD, OH – Jury deliberations of suspended Mansfield police officer Michael Garn have gone on for 15 hours, still with no verdicts.

The 42-year-old faces 34 counts accusing him of improperly using the LEADS computer system, of failing to turn in drugs he had confiscated to the crime lab, and of attempting to use his position of authority to have sexual relations with women he had arrested.

Assistant county prosecutor Omar Siddiq told the jury Tuesday that police have a responsibility to perform their jobs within the law, and the public has the right to hold police who break the law accountable.

The jury will return Friday at 9:00 a.m.


Florida hero in blue punches, head butts woman in bar for saying something he doesn’t like

Posted by Deborah Jarrett


A Sanford police lieutenant was arrested early Saturday near Sanford, the Sanford Police Department said.

Sanford police Lt. Joe Santiago was arrested shortly after 5:45 a.m. near Interstate 4 and H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway following a night of barhopping in Daytona Beach with a woman, according to an arrest report.

The woman told deputies Santiago headbutted her at a bar after she said something Santiago didn’t like, the report said.

The woman told investigators the two later got into an argument and Santiago punched her in the face, causing blood to shoot from her nose, the report said.

Santiago, who smelled of alcohol, chose to not speak or answer any questions without a lawyer present, deputies said in the report.

The woman was brought to Central Florida Regional Hospital to be treated for her injuries, deputies said.

Santiago was booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, where he was jailed without bond. He was charged with felony battery.”


Here is a typical cop for you

He is such a good cop that he made lieutenant

But deep down inside e was still who he was

A bully

According to the women’s advocacy group the Purple Berets cops are 2 to 4 times more likely to be domestic abusers

Not only that, but they are 6 times less likely to be prosecuted

” Domestic violence is 2 to 4 times more common in police families than in the general population. In two separate studies, 40% of police officers self-report that they have used violence against their domestic partners within the last year. In the general population, it’s estimated that domestic violence occurs in about 10% of families”

That is not a hero in blue that risks his life every day to save the public

That is a bully with a badge and a gun who is a threat to anyone he encounters

Bullies are notorious for being cowards

If they are not positive that they can win they become frightened

And if a cop becomes frightened and ” Fears for his life”

We all know what happens then
