Just remember this: The day before this pervert was busted, he was a hero. He was a bona fida kitten rescuing cop who could do no wrong.   The day before this slimebag was busted for perving on children , he was a sworn officer of the court.  That’s right, the day before, his word would be given the weight of truth by a judge simply because he was a “Sworn officer of the court”.     After his “Truthful” testimony, he could go home and masturbate to videos and images of small children.      This is the face of the police state and don’t forget it. It is not about who they are or what  do. It is all about blue and representing the power of the state.  If they beat brutalize and kill people in the streets they get a pass. Only when one does something so egregious that it cannot be overlooked is something done about it. They will lie about killings, falsify evidence and stonewall the public until truth comes out and they are faced with protests in the streets.     This guy’s crime? Well an outsider gave him up for uploading images. Look at the powerful language used when the official statement was issued by the PBSO ““The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office holds its employees to the highest standards and never forgets about its duty to preserve the public’s trust,” the sheriff’s office said in an emailed statement. “Unfortunately sometimes an employee makes a bad decision which leads to misconduct”      Seriously??? A bad decision? A bad decision is when you decide to continue a pursuit in the rain. This guy is a freaking child molester.      Remember this guy the next time you sit in a court room. Remember him anytime you hear “Truthful ” testimony given by LEO. Remember him the next time you hear “Sworn officer of the court”. But most importantly, remember him the next time you look at a cop. Look past the blue and wonder who that really is enforcing the laws of the state.

“A Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy had more than 30 pornographic videos and pictures of children on his laptop and cellphone, according to West Palm Beach police records.

Adam Godbey, 38, was booked Thursday afternoon into the Palm Beach County Jail on more than two dozen counts of possessing child pornography. Judge Caroline Shepherd ordered he undergo a mental health evaluation.

In late May, someone notified the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children’s CyberTipline about pornographic images of children being uploaded to a website.

A search of the IP address determined they were uploaded by a Comcast customer, whose IP address was linked to Godbey, a four-year veteran with the sheriff’s office.

On Wednesday, West Palm police searched Godbey’s home. Police found a cellphone and a laptop hidden above a kitchen cabinet. Dozens of images and videos found on those devices depicted young girls and boys engaging in sexual acts, records state.       ”

“Godbey, a road patrol deputy, was praised by the sheriff’s office in 2015 for rescuing a kitten from under a car in Belle Glade.

The driver reportedly told Godbey, “you are the best, I love the cops.”

“The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office holds its employees to the highest standards and never forgets about its duty to preserve the public’s trust,” the sheriff’s office said in an emailed statement. “Unfortunately sometimes an employee makes a bad decision which leads to misconduct. This misconduct was reported, investigated and determined to be criminal in nature, resulting in the charges.”

Update: Cop heard scary noise before killing Australian woman

What a bunch of insufferable cowards and bullies. Over in Afghanistan a U.S. soldier cannot shoot an enemy combatant unless they are actively holding a weapon.   In the U.S hundreds of unarmed citizens are gunned down every year because some “Hero” feared for his life.    This woman died because one coward heard a frightening noise.  Do you know what the difference is? In Afghanistan they are trying to “Win hearts and minds”.     Here, they don’t care because on their turf, you exist in a police state.  Don’t like it? Well you may well end up jailed on some trumped up charge if you tell them that. Resisting, obstructing, whatever charge they want to call it.     Then after you are processed by the system you get to appear before a corrupt judge who’s sole means of income is derived by the state collecting fees and fines from you and other fine citizens.    Sometimes along the way though, innocent people get killed. But hey, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.    This is America, land of the free.

“MINNEAPOLIS — Five days after the police shooting of Justine Damond in south Minneapolis, Police Chief Janee Harteau spoke publicly for the first time, CBS Minnesota reports.

Harteau has been out of town since Saturday’s shooting, but returned to work on Thursday.

The Australian native was shot to death by a Minneapolis police officer Saturday night, after she called police to get help for a woman she thought was being attacked in an alley near her home. She then dialed 911 to make sure authorities were responding to the correct address, CBS Minnesota reports. Damond was shot as she came up to the squad’s driver side window, by Officer Mohamed Noor.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) is conducting the investigation. Harteau said she’s asked that the process be expedited to provide transparency.

Harteau has been under growing pressure to speak out about her department’s officer involved shooting, with some in community questioning why she wouldn’t cut her vacation short and return with answers. Harteau addressed reporters just after 5 p.m., saying she was backpacking in the mountains, making it very difficult to return sooner. She said she had spoken with Damond’s fiance Don on Thursday morning.

Though she defended Noor’s training, Harteau says the shooting “did not have to happen” and that Noor’s actions “go against who we are in the department.”

“Justine didn’t have to die. Based on the BCA information, this should not have happened.”

“Noor’s partner, Matthew Harrity, told investigators that he and Noor heard a loud noise immediately before Damond approached the squad car.

The police chief was told by Damond’s fiance that people are scared to call 911 following the deadly incident, CBS News’ Jamie Yuccas reports.

The police chief is working to regain the community’s trust at this point and the chief reassured Damond’s family that she will do everything in her power to make sure justice is served for Damond, Yuccas reports.

Noor has been on the force for 21 months, while Harrity has been an officer for one year.

Damond, 40, was a yoga teacher and meditation instructor.”

Heroes of the week: Deputies pair with disgraced ex cop to distribute Marijuana

Marijuana, Meth and a multitude of crimes. It’s a good these these “Few bad apples” were taken off of the street . Now we have nothing to worry about, right? I am sure that they are going to throw all the cases out that these degenerates testified on, right?      Unfortunately it is no on both of those questions.  According to an internal survey conducted by the police themselves, 46% of cops have witnessed malfeasance by other cops and did…….Wait for it…..Nothing.    That’s right, it is just a few bad apples. You need to remember this the next time you have contact with LEO. Whether on a dark highway or listening to them testify in court. Hero is earned, not a color you wear.

Two former Kern County deputies have admitted their involvement in a corruption scandal involving a former Bakersfield police detective.

Derrick Penney and Logan August are each scheduled to plead guilty May 15 at the federal courthouse in downtown Fresno to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute marijuana.

The maximum sentence for the crime is five years in federal prison and a fine, but prosecutors will recommend a lesser sentence as part of the deal. Judge Lawrence O’Neill is not bound to follow the recommendation, but he did give lighter sentences to Damacio Diaz and Patrick Mara last year. Diaz and Mara, each former Bakersfield Police detectives, faced similar charges, though with higher maximums.

Court documents obtained Wednesday say that 10 times in 2014 August stole marijuana seized during sheriff raids. He gave the marijuana to a former confidential informant to sell and then received a $15,000 cut of the sales.

Between June 2014 and October 2014, Penney conspired with August, his informant, former Bakersfield police detective Patrick Mara and others to steal and sell marijuana that they took from a locked evidence storage facility. Penney profited $1,200, according to his signed statement of facts.

Public records obtained through Transparent California indicate that the two deputies each earned at or near $200,000 in pay and benefits during the year of their crimes.

It’s not just the cops, it’s the system: Man released after 2 decades in prison

A federal jury on Wednesday awarded a man more than $13 million after he sued thecity, seven Chicago police officers and two Cook County prosecutors over his conviction for the 1992 slayings of Jeffrey Lassiter and Sharon Haugabook.

Tears streamed down Deon Patrick’s face, and he clutched a photograph of his late mother that he wears around his neck, as Judge Ronald Guzman announced the award. Patrick wore a bright-green sweater vest to the courtroom and hugged his attorneys after the verdict was read.

“I feel like my day has finally come,” Patrick said minutes after the hearing. “They tricked me into believing it was over in 2014.

“To sit there for 25 years, and then to have to go through this all over again, and listen to the lies all over again,” he said after five weeks of testimony and more than two days of jury deliberation. “They made me relive it.”

Patrick spent two decades in prison before Cook County prosecutors dismissed the murder charges against him in 2014. He filed his lawsuit that same year.

The verdict comes four months after a federal jury awarded $22 million to Nathson Fields, an ex-El Rukn gang member who spent more than a decade on Death Row only to be cleared of a 1984 double murder.

Patrick’s case went to trial March 6 in front of Judge Guzman. Patrick’s lawyer, Stuart Chanen, told jurors during closing arguments Monday there was no physical evidence linking Patrick to the slayings.

“They fabricated evidence against [Patrick],” Chanen said of the police and prosecutors targeted by the lawsuit. “They coerced his confession. They manipulated evidence.

Corrupt lying cops, prosecutors and judges. It takes all of these to commit a travesty of that magnitude. From top to bottom it took hundreds of people to perpetrate this.    But once the system has become focused on someone it has millions of dollars and manpower to convict. All prosecutors care about are their conviction rate so they can further their career. They are no better than the cops and are actually the ones who empower their misdeeds

Veteran deputy in Marion County resigns after prosecutor refuses to use his testimony

Amazing…Lying cops. Who ever would have guessed? What this story isn’t telling you is that the Sheriff of the very same Dept. was forced to retire to avoid prosecution about a year ago for………. You guessed it; Lying under oath. The difference is that the Sheriff was lying about a different battery case where his deputies had beat the holy dog snot out of a guy who surrendered.      Real heroes, huh? Just because they wear blue. Well that blue privilege needs to be revoked. Do not ever assume that a cop is telling the truth. They are just as likely to lie if not more so than the average person. They have to do it all the time to cover their and their buddies butts and make stories fit the narrative they tell.

“A veteran deputy with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office has resigned after the prosecutor’s office announced it would no longer rely on testimony from him after truthfulness in question.

Joshua Parker

On Thursday, sheriff’s office administrators requested MCSO K9 Deputy Joshua Parker be at the MCSO Central Operations Center for the purpose of terminating his employment with the MCSO. Prior to being terminated, Parker submitted his resignation and has been separated from the agency. The events giving rise to Sheriff Billy Woods’ intention to terminate Parker arose from a Feb. 13 letter from State Attorney Brad King, advising that Parker’s testimony would no longer be relied upon by his office. The SAO discovered that Parker was untruthful in two recent cases and they could no longer accept Parker’s testimony to be relied upon for material evidence in any future case, intake, deposition, hearing or trial unless his testimony was corroborated by some other reliable evidence.

The SAO found that Parker gave false testimony during a deposition, and during the subsequent state felony battery trial, of former MCSO deputy Jesse Terrell. Upon receiving the letter of the SAO’s findings and determination, Sheriff Woods suspended Parker with pay. Sheriff Woods ultimately made the decision to terminate Parker from the agency, citing the insurmountable issues the State Attorney’s Office vocalized along with the liability and public concern that would be associated with keeping Parker as a deputy sheriff.

#Police officer that killed Autistic boy sentenced to 40 Yrs.

Scumbag cop got exactly what he deserved ; Essentially a life sentence. It wasn’t only that he opened fire, but he had to lie about and fall back on the “Feared for his life” defense. That’s just how heartbroken he is.     Not just that, but I love the way the defense attorney attempts to return him to hero status ” For more than a decade, Jonathan Goins told the court, Stafford “was putting his life on the line each and every night” while “we’ve been sleeping in our beds.”    Yeah, right. You never know when a 5 Yr. old Autistic kid may open fire on you.    It is more likely that he put his lies on the line every night.   Pulling over drunks and old ladies sure is some hazardous duty. Sounds to me like he was simply pissed because the driver would not submit to his authority and ended up killing the kid.        This shit is not for free anymore. If LEO has not figured it out; enough is enough. They are making war against the citizens that they are sworn to protect and the rubber is ready to hit the road.  People are up in arms, prosecutors are finally prosecuting and judges are handing out prohibitive sentences.       Put your life on the line? Keep shooting innocent and unarmed people and it will be. Just like Officer Stafford ; a life for a life. LEO has brought this on itself and it is going to take quite a bit to undo it.

“MARKSVILLE — Former Marksville deputy marshal Derrick Stafford was sentenced to 40 years in prison Friday, a week after an Avoyelles Parish jury found the 33-year-old former policeman guilty in the fatal shooting of a 6-year-old boy and the wounding of the boy’s father.

Stafford, who apologized to the boy’s father and asked for leniency, was convicted of manslaughter in the death of Jeremy Mardis, an autistic first grader, and attempted manslaughter in the wounding of Chris Few, the boy’s 26-year-old father.

But Judge William Bennett, who presided over the week-long trial, decided to impose the four-decade sentence — the maximum for manslaughter, and a prison term Stafford’s attorneys described at the hearing as essentially a life sentence — after reading an eight-page statement from the bench.

Bennett called Stafford “a good man” but described the hail of gunfire unleashed by Stafford and a fellow deputy, Norris Greenhouse Jr., at the end of a two-mile pursuit on Nov. 3, 2015, as “a senseless tragedy” for which Stafford was justly convicted.

“The shooting simply should never have happened,” Bennett said.

Stafford, shackled and wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, reiterated that he never knew the child was in the car and expressed remorse for the boy’s death. While standing before the judge, Stafford turned and, looking directly at Few, apologized for the shooting and the loss of Few’s son. “I have kids, man,” he said.

But Stafford continued to maintain that Few posed a threat when Stafford opened fire on his small SUV at the end of the chase.

“I did believe there was a threat and I tried to stop it,” Stafford said.

Both Stafford and his attorneys also stressed his 13-year law enforcement career during the sentencing hearing. For more than a decade, Jonathan Goins told the court, Stafford “was putting his life on the line each and every night” while “we’ve been sleeping in our beds.”

Valhalla

fvcugkew

VALHALLA

I will disappear in fog and night
Subdued in sleep and surprise
Blinding lights
Overwhelming might
They will spirit me away
And charge me with my crimes
They will call me many names
And some I might be
But none will be  my own
I will be a traitor or subversive
Or worse
Because I refuse to swear allegiance
To the police state
And fealty to the men
Clad in black
I will not submit
But they don’t know
That I stole into the great hall of Valhalla
And took with me
One of their mighty spears
Usurped their valor
And took it back with me
Now they will carry me on my shield
Though my burning bier
Be but a lonely cell
And tonight I will dine
In the great hall of Valhalla
That place that still lives on
In the mind of men
