Welcome to Florida: Pinellas deputy resigns after investigation reveals racist, pornographic content on phone

   Yes that’s right: It’s only a few bad apples. And really, they are not racist at all.   That is why if you go to Google, Put in the search term “Officer arrested” and hit ” news”, hundreds of recent results pop up.     It is amazing what these heroes in blue are up to. Besides porn and racism they are being picked up for assault, battery, rape, child rape, robbery and even murder.  Don’t believe me? Go ahead and search for yourself.   You will find that when I post my “Hero of the week” segments there is no funny business concerning the amount of arrests.    This is what happens when you seek out people who want to have power over others.  No one just wakes up one morning and says” I want to wear a badge and a gun and exercise control over my fellow man”.     It is who these people are; And it does not make for good people. It makes for people who feel that they have a sense of entitlement. It  makes for people who have more in common with bullies and wife beaters than with your average person.      We do not need a police force full of domestic warriors terrorizing our streets.  We need public servants who are honored to do their only duty which is to serve and protect.    As long as the current trend in hiring continues this is only going to get worse. We now live in a defacto police state and serious change must happen or our very freedom is is gone.

PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. – A Pinellas County deputy has resigned after offensive content was found on his personal cell phone during a separate investigation into an alleged extramarital affair with a corrections deputy.

Shawn Pappas, 46, was employed with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office for 10 years before he resigned at the end of February. He became a corporal approximately 3 years ago.

The content on his phone was racist, sexist and pornographic in nature. There were dozens of pornographic photos of women and offensive memes that were sent and received while Pappas was both on and off duty.

One of the memes mocked the Women’s March in D.C. and said “In one day, Trump got more fat women out walking, than Michelle Obama did in 8 years.

Another showed a white child next to a monkey and reads “Stop Racism, black children and white children are the same.”

There were also memes sent that mocked people with Down Syndrome, gay men and American Indians.

Investigators also discovered videos Pappas made while on duty.

When Pappas was confronted about the content, he resigned from the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators say they would have fired him, had he not resigned.

Five Inglewood cops who killed unconscious couple fired

module-everyday-heroes-right
Posted by Deborah Jarrett

Surely when the truth comes out we will find out that they all feared for their life and they will be vindicated.  Maybe, knowing that they were sleeping in a bad neighborhood, the couple had painted eyeballs on their eyelids with marker. How else can you explain the volley of bullets unleashed by these fearless heroes in blue?     But on a serious note ; How is it that in a war zone in a foreign country, our soldiers have a much higher standard to shoot someone than does a LEO in our own country? In Afghanistan, simply “Fearing for your life” does not qualify  a U.S soldier to murder someone. That person, that potential foreign “Enemy combatant” in a war zone must actually have a weapon in his hands at the time of the shooting.     This is a real and present problem and it endangers every citizen who has an encounter with a “Hero” in blue. Make no mistake that every single encounter with Law enforcement could end fatally whether or not you co-operate with them.  Think I am exaggerating? Then read on. I have compiled here on these pages a body of work that firmly refutes the oft quoted “A few bad apples”. Do you Think that you are safe when you see cherries behind you on a desolate highway? Again, I challenge you to read what is on the pages compiled here.      Stay safe America and don’t get pulled over….. Or fall asleep.

“The five Inglewood police officers who fatally shot a young couple, firing 20 bullets into them as they appeared to be unconscious in a parked car, are no longer police officers in the city, Mayor James T. Butts said Tuesday.

The announcement marked the end of an internal probe of the Feb. 21, 2016, slayings of Marquintan Sandlin and Kisha Michael, but it offered scant information about the incident, which has stoked protest and calls for greater transparency in the Inglewood Police Department.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office is continuing to investigate the shooting.

“The officers involved in the incident are no longer members of the Inglewood Police Department,” Butts said in his statement. “The department’s report and any discipline that results from the report are confidential.”

Butts said the internal investigation into the fatal shooting of Sandlin, 32, and Michael, 31, was completed on Friday. His statement did not specify the number of officers or whether they were fired or had resigned.

The mayor’s spokeswoman, Jasmyne Cannick, later said that the five officers were “separated from service” after firing their weapons during the encounter with Sandlin and Michael.

All five held the rank of police officer, and four had been with the Inglewood Police Department for two years or less. One had been with the department for five years, Cannick said.

Cannick said the mayor was unable to comment further.

Although Butts did not name the officers, they were previously identified by the city, which initially refused, after a public records request. The five officers involved in the shooting were identified as Michael Jaen, Richard Parcella, Jason Cantrell, Sean Reidy and Andrew Cohen.”

Lying cop fakes body cam footage; Prosecutors drop charges

Believe me when I say this; You are never safe when you have an encounter with LEO. They will lie, cheat, steal and make fake body cam videos to prosecute you. It is not the gun nor the badge that makes them dangerous. It is the man. It is the type of person who chooses to control others as a career.    According to a study by the women’s advocate group, the Purple Berets, cops are 4 times more likely to commit domestic violence and six times less likely to be prosecuted than the average citizen. So remember this the next time you get pulled over. You are in danger; Don’t be fooled by the uniform. Not all abusers wear wife beaters.

“Prosecutors in Pueblo, Colorado are dropping felony drug and weapon-possession charges after an officer involved in the case said he staged body cam footage so he could walk “the courts through” the vehicle search that led to the arrest.

The development means that defendant Joseph Cajar, 36, won’t be prosecuted on allegations of heroin possession and of unlawful possession of a handgun. The evidence of the contraband was allegedly found during a search of Cajar’s vehicle, which was towed after he couldn’t provide an officer registration or insurance during a traffic stop. Officer Seth Jensen said he found about seven grams of heroin and a .357 Magnum in the vehicle at the tow yard. But the actual footage of the search that he produced in court was a reenactment of the search, the officer told prosecutors.

Cajar’s attorney said the development, which comes as more and more police agencies are deploying body cams, is a disturbing use of technology.

“Everyone who looked at the video believed it was in-time documentation of what actually happened,” lawyer Joe Koncilja told Ars. The video, he said, shows the officer is “surprised by the fact that he found the gun. It’s tampering with evidence.” The video was shown in court during a March preliminary hearing where a judge found sufficient evidence to prosecute Cajar.

The Pueblo Police Department has opened an internal investigation into the body cam incident.

The alleged police misconduct surfaced after the local prosecutor texted Jensen to make sure his report matched the body cam footage.

According to the Pueblo Chieftan:

Jensen replied back, saying, “For the search, the body cam shows different than the report because it was. Prior to turning my body cam on I conducted the search. Once I found the (expletive referring to evidence), I stepped back, called (a fellow officer), then activated my body cam and walked the courts through it.”

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.

Heroes of the week – 5/3/17 cops arrested for rape, child porn, violence etc.

 We are back for another edition of our heroes in blue and their malfeasance on the public dime. These supposed public servants could really give the criminals they are supposed to be after some really good lessons in general dirt baggery.    The only difference between these uniformed criminals and the ones who wear wife beaters is that you don’t have to worry about one of them pulling you over on a dark highway.

Birds of a feather: Sheriff’s Dept. hires cop just busted for pawning multiple duty weapons

So, they looked at this guy and thought he was A-okay. No alarms or whistles when he was interviewed. And why was that?  Because it is who they are. They are a personality type and are one and the same. Think you are above the law? Good, You are one of us. Of course when they get busted they can no longer cover and have to cut them free. This is the caliber of the individuals that choose this type of employ. No one just wakes up one morning and says ” I want to control people for a living”  Best of luck to you the next time you get pulled over. You never know who is behind that badge and gun.

“MEMPHIS, TENN (localmemphhis.com) – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained an indictment for a former police officer who is now facing charges of Theft and Official Misconduct.

At the request of 22nd District Attorney General Brent Cooper, TBI Agents began investigating Robert Jason Gann in January.

During the investigation, Agents developed information that, while a police officer for the Waynesboro Police Department, Gann pawned two department-issued weapons in Lawrenceburg on several occasions.

The final time Gann pawned the handgun, the investigation revealed he did not pick it up, and it was eventually sold by the pawn shop.

Gann resigned his job with the police department before information about this incident surfaced and took a job at the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department.

That agency’s leaders subsequently terminated his employment when it learned of the accusations involving Gann.”

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.

Cop shoots dogs leg off after drunken fall from motorcycle

And of course the Asshole lies about what actually happened. “Feared for his life” my ass. How many people and animals have lost their lives because some trigger happy coward “Feared for his life”? Now they have the dipshit on paid suspension instead of fired and warming up a jail cot.  It shows what they really think of his actions.

PURCELL, Oklahoma

“Officer Richard Kyle Glasgow has been charged with one count of reckless conduct with a firearm, according to court documents.

On Oct. 8, 2016 Glasgow told authorities he was riding his motorcycle in McClain County when he said a dog named Champion came out after his motorcycle and he feared for his life so he fired a warning shot into the ground and another shot at the dog. Champion was wounded and lost part of his right front paw as a result of the shooting.

Witnesses told police that Glasgow fell off his motorcycle while driving by the property where Champion’s owners lived.

A deputy called to the scene said, “While talking to Glasgow I could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person, and could hear slurred speech as he spoke.”

The charge alleges Glasgow demonstrated a conscious disregard for the safety of others and created a situation of unreasonable risk and probability of death or great bodily harm to others. ”

To serve: Hero cop lies about boyfriend beating her children

module-everyday-heroes-right
Posted by Deborah Jarrett

Seriously, these two would never lie about an arrest. At least not being the upstanding heroes that they are. Sworn officers of the court who’s word is given the weight of truth.   But the truth is that these cops lie all the time because they know that they have the benefit of the doubt.    How would you like to have an encounter with either one of these two on a dark highway? How about Officer “Disciplinarian? How would you like to be put in cuffs by him?      So, here is the problem: Any time you encounter LEO you have no idea who that person is. All you do know is that they are armed and have the power to arrest, and if they are in fear, kill you.    Makes you feel safe doesn’t it? Makes you want to recite the ” Few bad apples” mantra.    But unfortunately, that is not the case. On these pages I have a body of work that shows just the opposite.  Remember when you read here; I pass on 30 stories just to highlight one. And these are just the ones who have been caught.    Drive safe kids, your life could depend on it.

“A Massachusetts police officer accused of covering up the alleged abuse of her two children by her boyfriend, has officially been suspended without pay.

Angela Halcovich, 32, a Revere Police officer, was charged Jan. 27 with two counts of aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and two counts of assault and battery on a child for wantonly or recklessly allowing another person to commit assault and battery on a child.”

“Prosecutors said Halcovich told investigators that she beat one of her sons with a belt and she knew that Garcia was also beating her children.”

“She allegedly admitted to state police that she told her sons to lie about the beatings.

Garcia, who also faces child abuse charges after he allegedly handcuffed and whipped the 5-year-old with a belt because he would not eat his dinner, resigned from the force on Feb. 2.”
