Read the story below and let it sink in. 18 years he was on the force. That is who these people are. ” Multiple horrible choices” tells you that they knew exactly who this guy was and what he was up to. But you know what? The day before he was arrested he was a “Sworn officer of the court”. With full knowledge that this guy was a dirtbag he was still tasked with enforcing the laws of the state. That is the guy you see who straps a gun and badge on every day; The state enforcer. The blunt instrument that the state uses to bend it’s citizens to it’s will. Do they care if their blunt instrument is also a criminal? Not at all. Not one case that this guy testified in will ever be undone. The state got its money, the judge got paid, the prosecutor got paid and some defense attorney got paid. The system thrives on low lifes like this because they will unthinkingly carry out their thuggery. Then why was he arrested? Because he got careless and got himself caught on camera. No matter how much you might want to look the other way it is impossible when it is caught on video

“An 18-year-veteran of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office faces possible termination after his arrest Tuesday.
Officer Thomas McDonald was arrested for simple battery after he was caught on video inappropriately touching a woman’s breast at Five Points bar Birdie’s early on Sunday morning.
JSO Undersheriff Pat Ivey announced the arrest Tuesday afternoon. He said McDonald was talking to the woman and her boyfriend, whom he knew previously, when he playfully invited her to punch him. After she did, McDonald responded by touching her “upper breast.”
“She was pissed. Her face had a very shocked look,” Ivey said. “You can tell by her response that it was a totally unwanted contact by Officer McDonald.”
Ivey said she immediately punched McDonald — for real this time — before calling police after the incident.
He said McDonald was already facing a 15-day suspension in a separate case when he was arrested for the bar incident.
“This is something that’s not connected to anything else. This is not corruption. This is an officer that made a horrible choice, and if he’s an officer that made multiple horrible choices in the last four years, five years, so be it. We deal with it,” Ivey said.
Ivey said McDonald previously served a 10-day suspension in another case as well.
He is the eighth JSO officer arrested this year.”
