Just a few bad apples right? Of course it is and that would explain why I have hundreds of pages and thousands of stories posted here. These cops lying, stealing and worse are not anomalies, but rather the norm. Why tell the truth when you can lie and it will believed because of your blue privilege? Why not swagger and throw your ass around when you are backed up by all of your cohorts who do the same? It is not a far jump from that starting point to theft, cover up and civil rights violations. Any time you are in contact with LEO, both your life and freedom are in danger.You never know the true face that hides behind that badge and gun….. Until you see it.
“A Paterson police sergeant was arrested Tuesday as part of an internal affairs and FBI investigation into corruption within the city’s department, authorities said Tuesday.
Sgt. Michael Cheff is the eighth city police officer arrested in the FBI’s corruption probe that began three years ago, Police Director Jerry Speziale said.”
“Cheff is accused of civil rights violations and falsifying police reports. According to an FBI complaint, Cheff is accused of stealing more than $2,000 from the safe of an alleged drug dealer and sometimes falsified paperwork to cover up the thefts of money that other officers stole.”
“The investigation has focused on police officers who allegedly stole thousands in cash from people after illegally stopping and searching their vehicles.
Cheff, who has been on the job since 1996, was the sergeant who supervised five former patrol officers who have pleaded guilty to taking money from motorists, passengers and other people they illegally stopped.”
“A Baltimore police officer caught on tape last year beating a suspect went to prison this year. A veteran police sergeant filmed allegedly arresting, threatening and harassing innocent men faces a slew of charges. And more officers tied to the Gun Trace Task Force were charged or sentenced in federal court.
A violent 2019 in the city was also a busy year for prosecutors, internal affairs detectives and others charged with policing Baltimore’s police. Court records, sentencing memorandums and Baltimore Sun archives show that at least 20 Baltimore police officers — including some who are no longer with the department — were either charged, sentenced, or suspended during 2019.
The scope of the crimes and allegations are broad and follow a particularly notorious 2018, which included federal arrests and trials of officers of the GTTF, and another officer charged with drug trafficking. This year’s charges range from drunken driving to an officer being sentenced to five years in prison after nearly running over a man in a crosswalk, then drawing his gun after the man spilled tea on his car.
The public relations damage crested in October, when Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said she had a list of “hundreds of officers” with alleged credibility issues.
Baltimore police officials say they are working to address not only problems in the department, but also to become more responsive to members of the public. Police Commissioner Michael Harrison released a staffing plan last week that calls for more than doubling the number of internal affairs detectives to help reduce backlogs and respond more swiftly to complaints against officers.”
Trust me, you have nothing to fear when you see cherries lighting up your dashboard. That is a sworn officer of the court behind you and anything that he says will be given the weight of truth. Put your hands behind your back and let the man with the gun put you in handcuffs. Remember….. You have nothing to fear….
” An off-dufy NYPD cop was arrested for allegedly threatening a motorist with his gun following a dispute at a red light in Queens, police said.
Officer Philip Case, 49, who was slapped with a menacing charge, got into an argument with another man at the corner of Van Doren Street and 108th Street in Corona about 10:15 p.m. Friday, authorities said.
With both cars stopped, Case flashed his gun and then sped off once the light turned green, cops said.
The victim called police and Chase was arrested a block away.
It’s unclear what prompted the argument, but police said both Chase and the victim remained in their vehicles during the confrontation.
Chase was released after getting a desk appearance ticket for the offense.”
It’s real easy being a tough guy when you are all vested up and dealing with an unarmed person. As long as you have forty others to get your back, being the big dog is fun. Old ladies, teenage girls, speeders and the occasional shop lifter give cops plenty of room to feel empowered without back up (And their spouses on Saturday night). But let’s make it Mano E Mano and see what happens.In the normal Cop world they always win because they can call in 800 reserve cops, snipers, APC’s and SWAT teams. Barring that working they can have the Governor call in national guard troops. But when the chips are down, what will those hired to protect and serve do? Without back up who are they? If they don’t have muscle memory to be the better shooter, what will they do? Ask the Parkland parents; they know. A bunch of cops with less balls than a 19 Yr. old demented punk.
seek to harm, intimidate, or coerce (someone perceived as vulnerable).

“The arrest comes more than a year after the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
Multiple felony charges of child endangerment were filed Tuesday against the former Broward County sheriff’s deputy who hid while a man gunned down 17 students at a South Florida high school last year.
Scot Peterson, who was the school resource officer on duty on February 14, 2018, was terminated for his inaction along with a sergeant named Brian Miller.
But now the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has concluded its investigation and have charged Peterson with seven counts of neglect of a child, three counts of culpable negligence, and one count of perjury.
“The FDLE investigation shows former Deputy Peterson did absolutely nothing to mitigate the MSD shooting that killed 17 children, teachers and staff and injured 17 others,” said Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen. “There can be no excuse for his complete inaction and no question that his inaction cost lives.”
The fallout from the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland resulted in Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel being removed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and replaced by Gregory Tony.
“We cannot fulfill our commitment to always protect the security and safety of our Broward County community without doing a thorough assessment of what went wrong that day,” Sheriff Tony told WPTV. “I am committed to addressing deficiencies and improving the Broward Sheriff’s Office.”
You can’t make this shit up. Remember who the guy with handcuffs is when he shows up at your house or pulls you over and starts throwing his ass around. Where has he been and what has he been up to? Big man with a vest , a gun and a license to call in 400 other cops to back him up.
That’s right, they only got six from one department. Just a few bad apples right? Or how about , Just the tip of the iceberg. If they got that many bad cops in one sitting, then how many did they miss? This type of behavior is common place. Cops believe that because of blue privilege they are above the law. Every day nationwide they lie on reports, perjure themselves and abuse those that they are sworn to protect. The only problem these numbnuts encountered was they pissed enough people off who had money for lawyers to bring about their own downfall. Have fun in prison boys where you can now be abused by your fellow co-workers.

“On Tuesday, a sixth Paterson police officer was arrested at city police headquarters, the latest Paterson cop swept up in a more than two-year federal probe.
The officers are accused of — and some have pleaded guilty to — crimes including beating up a hospital patient and a string of illegal traffic stops in which officers allegedly stole money and drugs.
During his guilty plea in federal court, Bustios said the illegal stops started in 2016 and continued into 2018. At the time of his arrest in April, federal authorities had revealed only crimes that took place in 2018.
In his guilty plea, Bustios also implicated Paterson Police Officer Eudy Ramos and others for participating in the conspiracy with him. Ramos had already been arrested in the case, but authorities had not accused any other cops of making the illegal stops.
McAusland also admitted that in 2017, he pushed, punched and struck a suicidal patient while the victim was in a wheelchair and lying on a bed in a Paterson hospital. He said he then tried to cover it up by filing a false police report.
He pleaded guilty to one drug-dealing offense and conspiracy to violate the hospital patient’s civil rights — crimes that carry a total maximum prison sentence of 50 years and a minimum of five.
Pent was hired by the Paterson department in January 2014. He was in the same police academy class as McAusland and Ramos, two of the other police officers arrested in the probe.
The Paterson Police Department is suspending Pent without pay for 30 days, officials said. After that, he will be placed on paid administrative leave until the charges against him are resolved, officials said.
Pent’s salary is listed as $53,589 on city payroll records.
In April, Ramos was arrested by the FBI. Last week, Ramos was indicted on nine counts of civil rights crimes in the FBI probe.
The indictment alleged illegal traffic stops and shakedowns by Ramos. Additionally, it contained charges that Ramos conspired with four other Paterson police officers— including Bustios and Matthew Torres — to target vehicles for illegal stops and searches and taking occupants’ money.
He was in the same police academy class as Pent and McAusland, two of the other officers arrested in the probe.
Ramos is scheduled to be arraigned on charges Wednesday.
During his guilty plea, McAusland said that Then, his former partner, also participated in the hospital assault and coverup.
Then was accused of making a video recording of the beating, which was allegedly carried out by an unidentified city police officer, according to a federal affidavit establishing probable cause for Then’s arrest.
The officers’ alleged attack injured the victim’s face, and he needed eye surgery as a result of the beating, federal authorities said.
Then has been a member of the Police Department since July 2016.
It was the same incident in which McAusland was also implicated.
Then was the fourth Paterson police officer arrested by the FBI.
In December, Torres was arrested in the FBI probe. He was the fifth Paterson cop arrested in the probe.
