Heroes one and all : 9th officer arrested on federal corruption charges linked to Gun Trace Task Force

“A former Baltimore City police officer who is currently a police officer in Philadelphia was arrested Tuesday in connection with an investigation into illegal activities of former members of the Baltimore police Gun Trace Task Force.

Officer Eric Troy Snell, 33, of Philadelphia, was arrested on charged of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine.

Snell has been employed by the Philadelphia Police Department since September 2014. He was most recently assigned to the 35th Police District. As a result of the criminal investigation and indictment, Snell will be suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss.

According to court documents, Snell attended the Baltimore City Police Department Training Academy and was a Baltimore police officer until March 2008. While he was in the academy, Snell met co-conspirator Detective Jemell Rayam. Snell became an officer in the Philadelphia Police Department in September 2014.

According to the indictment, between October 2016 and June 2017, while Snell was with the Philadelphia Police Department and Rayam was with the Baltimore Police Department, Snell and Rayam discussed and planned with each other the sale of illegal narcotics, including cocaine and heroin that had been obtained or seized by members of the Gun Trace Task Force in Baltimore.

The indictment alleges that in October 2016, Baltimore police Sgt. Wayne Jenkins, Rayam and detectives in the GTTF, engaged in a high-speed police chase where the driver of the vehicle threw more than 9 ounces of cocaine out of the window of his vehicle before crashing near Mondawmin Mall in Baltimore. The officers retrieved the cocaine and Jenkins told Rayam to sell most of the cocaine and give Jenkins proceeds of the sale, which Rayam agreed to do, federal prosecutors said.

Later that month, after learning from Rayam that he had cocaine, Snell asked Rayam to provide him with the stolen cocaine instead of submitting it as evidence to the Baltimore Police Department, and Rayam agreed to do so, federal prosecutors said.

Rayam then traveled to Philadelphia and met with Snell at his house. Rayam provided the cocaine to Snell, who arranged to meet with his brother, who was going to sell the drugs, federal prosecutors said. According to the indictment, Snell, his brother and Rayam met, and Snell provided his brother with the cocaine. The three men discussed the price at which the cocaine would be sold and the amount of money that Snell and Rayam would receive from the sales, federal prosecutors said.

In addition to the cocaine, court documents allege that Snell also agreed to sell 80 grams of heroin that Rayam had received from Jenkins.

According to the indictment, Snell deposited thousands of dollars in cash in Rayam’s bank account from the sales of illegal drugs, including deposits on Oct. 28, 2016, and Nov. 9, 2016. Snell also paid Rayam cash from the sales of illegal drugs when he met him on Nov. 11, 2016, federal prosecutors said.”

Hero of the week: Decorated officer cuts off GPS device and flees before trial for rape and kidnapping

And then the scumbag meets a fitting end… Suicide while waiting out a SWAT team. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. In the end you cannot hide who you are. A real tough guy bully who obviously had to have it his way.   No warning signs here, I am sure the guy’s behavior was perfectly normal. As a matter of fact the  Cleveland police officer who won the department’s distinguished service medal in 2009.    A regular good apple right? Yeah, sure thing.  That “Few bad apples” thing is a myth. It takes someone corrupt to work in the culture of violence and corruption that exists in America’s P.D. s.      Adios Amigo and good riddance.

“Authorities said Tuesday a former Cleveland police officer who allegedly cut off his GPS tracker and went on the run one week before he was set to go on trial for rape and kidnapping has killed himself after a standoff with police.

Tommie Griffin, 52, was wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office for the bond violation, according to Pete Elliott of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Griffin was tracked to a house in Cleveland, where Cleveland Police SWAT was called in, Elliott said Tuesday. Police tried to call him out of the house, but received no response from him. When police entered, they found Griffin dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest, police said.

Elliott said Griffin had an accomplice in his escape. The accomplice took Griffin to a motel for Saturday and Sunday night and then to the home — described as that of a friend of Griffin’s — where SWAT surrounded him. Elliott said on Tuesday the accomplice would be charged, but provided no further details.

Griffin was arrested for rape, assault and kidnapping after allegedly attacking his girlfriend in January, The Associated Press said.

He allegedly pistol-whipped her and fired two shots next to her, the AP said.”

Disarm the police


It’s very simple

There is no reason that a guy doing traffic stops or doing routine duty needs a gun

The biggest fear that an officer has is that he will be disarmed and shot with his own duty weapon

Only the smallest percentage of calls ever end up in using a gun and often times it is the gun itself being drawn that escalates the situation

Let them keep a gun in their car just like many citizens do

If it’s needed ; It is close by

If a violent situation arises, send cops wearing guns

It is ridiculous that a cop would have a traffic interaction with an 80 Yr. old woman and have a gun on his hip

It is ridiculous that a cop just walking arounb in public has a gun on his hip

Do you want to stop people being needlessly shot?

Then let’s start with the shooters

Remove the threat that they feel

And remove the threat that they are

Ex-police officer arrested near White House with arsenal of weapons

Special rules for special people.  What do you think his retirement for “Medical ” reasons was?     I think you guessed it. But do they turn the nut case in to make sure that he is disarmed?     Certainly not, not to one of their own.   There are special rules when you are on the other side of the “Thin blue line” and they will do what they can to protect you.

“A former Tennessee police officer was arrested outside the White House Sunday with an arsenal of weapons in his car, authorities said.

Timothy Joseph Bates allegedly told authorities that he came seeking for help to remove a chip implanted in his head.

Bates was reportedly stopped near the White House. He told officers that he was “blackjacked” in the head by the Memphis Police Department and a chip was implanted in his head, FOX5 reported.

Bates allegedly told the officer that he was offered $28.7 million by the Department of Homeland Security and the state of Tennessee to participate in a special C.I.A-managed project called “MK Ultra.”

He also said to have travelled to Washington, DC. “to speak with Adm. Mike Rogers and Gen. Jim Mattis for advice on missing paychecks and how to get the dog chip out of my head”

“The Memphis Police Department confirmed that Bates had been a police officer for 13 years before resigning in 2013. Court documents revealed the Tennessee man was allowed to retire for medical reasons”
