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.”

Hero of the week 10/24/2017 : Correction officer arrested for rape, oral sodomy and eight counts of lewd, indecent acts with a child under 16.

Well, this guy gives new meaning to the old “Stop resisting!” phrase doesn’t he? But remember this: Only one hour before this scum was busted, he was “A sworn officer of the court”.   If it was his word against an inmate, he was given the weight of truth.     That is how much that oath and badge are worth.  Do you think that this guy is an anomaly? Just one of the “Few bad apples?” well he is not.   The dirty little secret is that cops are more likely to commit crimes of violence than the average person.  That’s right, the guy with the gun and the badge who pulls you over on a dark highway could well be  a psychopath looking for victims.     Stay safe and stay away. Any encounter with ANY LEO could end your life or freedom. Teach your children not to put themselves in danger. Call an adult if approached by LEO and make sure that EVERY encounter is recorded no matter how minor.

“The Oklahoma Department of Corrections reports a corrections officer has been arrested for first-degree rape, two counts of forcible oral sodomy and eight counts of lewd, indecent acts with a child under 16.

Christopher Adams, 46, was taken into custody on Friday by the Oklahoma City police and DOC Fugitive Apprehension & Investigations agents. Adams is currently in the Oklahoma County Jail.

The OKCPD got in touch with DOC on August 1st, requesting his employment information. On October 12th the Oklahoma County district attorney notified DOC they were filing charges against Adams.

Adams was removed from contact with inmates, according to DOC Communications Director Matt Elliott.

“We have cooperated and will continue to assist in any way we can with this investigation,” DOC director Joe M. Allbaugh said. “We are not aware of any other potential victims. If there are any, we encourage them to come forward.”

Adams was employed by DOC in November of 2014 and served at the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, as well as security for hospitalized inmates.”

The usual : Federal investigation finds corruption at the highest level of law enforcement

This is not a few bad apples. This is what happens any time you turn over the LEO bushel basket. This is who these people are and it pervades the ranks from top to bottom.   Go from one state to the next and the story is the same: Anytime they are investigated widespread corruption is found.   As Americans, free men and women, is this what we signed up for? Corrupt and violent thugs roaming our streets and controlling our cities?  How many people must die and be imprisoned before we as a people say that “Enough is Enough?”

      Well, that time is coming. In the video age, they can no longer hide who they are. 10 Yr. old kids now pass video links around of cops beating people, shooting pets and abusing the citizenry in general.

That time is coming and it is up to all of us to do our part. Do not be silent. Do not let them have default “Hero” status. Video every encounter with them that you see and spread it around. Do not look away anymore and let them be who they are. Stand up… And do what is right, because they won’t.

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/36601661/fbi-arrests-hpd-officer-tied-to-kealoha-mailbox-scandal-corruption

“A Honolulu police officer and retired major appeared in court Monday after being charged as part of the years-long federal investigation into public corruption at some of the highest levels of Oahu’s law enforcement.

Former HPD Maj. Gordon Shiraishi, 61, and HPD officer Bobby Nguyen, 43, are the first people arrested in a corruption probe linked to former Police Chief Louis Kealoha and his wife, Katherine, a deputy city prosecutor.

Shiraishi has been charged with obstruction of justice, while Nguyen has been charged with conspiracy to obstruct.

“Corrupt activities, such as those alleged to have been committed, erode the public’s faith in law enforcement,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul Delacourt, in a news release.

“The citizens of Hawaii demand and deserve diligent police officers who adhere to the highest standards of conduct. Police corruption is among the FBI’s highest priorities and we are committed to investigating and prosecuting to the fullest extent those who violate the civil rights of others.”

In detailed complaints unsealed Monday, Kealoha is identified as “co-conspirator 6.” It’s the first time the former chief is identified in court documents as a player in the conspiracy to lie to federal authorities.

The former head of HPD has not been arrested, but attorneys for people involved believe the arrests of Nguyen and Shiraishi send a message.

“This matter has not concluded… if they don’t cooperate they will be arrested,” says Myles Breiner, attorney for the Kealohas.  Breiner says he is not surprised by the arrests but did question the need to execute them on a Sunday believing it was a way for the prosecution to get more attention to the case.

“If it happened on a Friday, or a normal business day, the arrested would have been processed and they would have been released immediately. To do it on a Sunday, on a slow news day, so it would get the most attention.  So it was the top story,” says Breiner.

In court Monday, special prosecutor Colin McDonald said Shiraishi and Nguyen violated the oath they took to protect the people.

The case is tied to the theft of the Kealohas’ mailbox in June 2013, a crime the FBI says was made up to frame Gerard Puana, who is Katherine Kealoha’s uncle.  At the time, the two sides were involved in a bitter family dispute over money.”

“Puana’s attorney, Ali Silvert, says the charges against Nguyen and Shiraishi are significant, and just the beginning, “This has been a long time in coming,” Silvert says, “Mr Puana feels very vindicated and very happy at this point that the prosecution has moved to this stage.”

In December, a retired Honolulu police officer pleaded guilty to lying under oath as part of the conspiracy to frame the Kealohas’ uncle. Niall Silva was a detective in CIU. Silva is now a key witness in the case. He is awaiting sentencing for his role in the alleged fake mailbox theft, but that can’t happen until after he testifies against the others. His attorney, Bill Harrison, says Silva is anxious to get that done.

Disarm the police

636023202644237140-1022172843_disarm20police

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
