And there you have it; You never know who the man with the gun is. “He’s a cop, he risks his life everyday” “It’s one of the Heroes in blue..” It’s just a few bad apples”…. Bullshit and more bullshit. These are guys who choose to control others for a living. These are guys who are 2 to 4 times more likely to commit domestic violence than the average person (1). These are guys who routinely lie, beat and steal as part of their daily routine (2) These are guys that you may not want to be pulled over by on a dark lonely highway. Stay safe…
“A Denver police officer has been arrested and jailed on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman he had met last month while responding to a call at her home, the Denver Police Department said Saturday.
DPD announced in a news release that Johnny Leon-Alvarez, 29, was arrested after he was named as a suspect in the investigation of a sex assault reported early Friday. He has been a Denver police officer since 2018 and was suspended without pay after the arrest, the release said.
An arrest affidavit says Leon-Alvarez met the 27-year-old victim in December when he was among officers who responded to her home. She had called police “regarding an argument she had with her significant other.”
After meeting her, the affidavit says, Leon-Alvarez began contacting the woman.
“One of the officers who responded began texting her afterward to check on her,” the document says. “Over time the (texts) became flirty, until the previous evening (Thursday) when they arranged to go on a date.”
The woman told police that Leon-Alvarez took her to Dave & Busters, an arcade and restaurant, on Thursday night. She said she recalled drinking, and at midnight the officer drove her home, the affidavit says.
“She tried to say goodnight at the door,” the report says. “She did not remember how he ended up coming in the house.”
The affidavit says police were called to her home at 2:55 a.m. Friday, and it says the woman’s roommate corroborated some details of her report, including that the woman protested any physical activity.”
(1) ” Domestic violence is 2 to 4 times more common in police families than in the general population. In two separate studies, 40% of police officers self-report that they have used violence against their domestic partners within the last year. In the general population, it’s estimated that domestic violence occurs in about 10% of families” Purple berets, Women’s advocacy, http://purpleberets.org/
Remember the old adage ” A few bad apples spoils the bunch”? Well, when someone says “It’s just a few bad apples” remind them of the rest of the quote. The rest of the bunch has been spoiled. Crime , corruption, lying and abuse has become endemic in those that WE pay to serve and protect. Instead of serving and protecting, they risk their lies everyday to further themselves. They pervert the duty honorably bestowed upon them and abuse the trust of the people they are hired to serve. Duty becomes theft and rape and people shot down in the street. Protect becomes a racket that fills both their pockets and resumes and serve becomes them bellying up to the trough to get all that they can. Enough is enough and it it is time to serve our servants what they serve us; What’s good for them is good for you/
the officer asked, according to court documents. … On Tuesday, nearly 14 years after the inmate complained, Nordo was arrested and charged with dozens … Nordo include rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, official …
Of course he thought that he was above the law and the rules didn’t apply to him. He is after all a default “Hero” simply because he wears blue. His testimony in court, the day before the incident, would have been given the weight of truth by a judge because he is a” Sworn officer of the court”. So this type of person is the type that choose to be cops? Short answer… Yes. And that will never change as long as they are responsible for their own accountability. Took a pissed off citizen to bring this guy down.
KENNER – An intoxicated NOPD officer was arrested after leading Kenner Police on a high-speed chase that ended in a fiery crash.
Fifty-three-year-old Carlos Peralta got into an argument with the clerk at a CVS Drugstore in the 800 block of West Esplanade Avenue just before midnight on November 24.
The store clerk refused to sell Peralta alcohol because he was obviously inebriated already, according to the Kenner Police Department.
The clerk called the police, and Peralta got behind the wheel of his vehicle and drove away.
Kenner Police officers caught up to Peralta’s vehicle in the 1400 block of West Esplanade, where they observed Peralta driving recklessly.
Peralta initially stopped his vehicle when ordered to do so, but then he sped away, according to the KPD.
He led police on a high-speed chase on I-10 that ended with a crash in the 5700 block of Morrison Road in New Orleans East.
The vehicle caught fire after the crash, and a 15-year-old passenger who has been described as Peralta’s relative hopped from the burning vehicle and ran to safety.
Peralta, however, refused to exit the burning vehicle, and had to be forcibly removed by arresting officers.
This is what happens when you automatically assign truth to a person because they wear a uniform
This is what happens when “Sworn officers of the court” make reports and give testimony
They lie because lying is made easy for them
They cheat because cheating is made easy for them.
A few bad apples?
Not by a long sight
Maybe there are a few good ones left
Former Lake County, Ind., deputy police chief sentenced for lying to FBI
“A federal judge told a former Lake County deputy police chief that when he lied to the FBI, his turned his legacy into that of “a crook.”
Dan Murchek, 57, of Schererville, was sentenced to two years of probation by federal Judge James Moody on Wednesday in Hammond. The former top-ranking police officer was sentenced for lying to the FBI.
Murchek was indicted in April for allegedly making false statements to the FBI, according to court documents, and reportedly lied to investigators during an interview about towing operations under convicted former Sheriff John Buncich when the former deputy chief was asked about campaign contributions he received from a tow operator.
“You’ll be remembered as a crook,” Moody said.
“Yes, sir,” Murchek said.
Defense attorney Paul Stracci said Murchek always did what he could to serve his community throughout his more than 30-year career in law enforcement. Murchek was willing and ready to help anyone who needed it, Stracci said.
What got Murchek into trouble was that he doesn’t always think things through, Stracci said.
Had Murchek admitted to the FBI that he structured the campaign donation, Stracci said it would have been a Class B misdemeanor and he likely would have continued being a police officer.
“I think sometimes Danny doesn’t think,” Stracci said.
“Or maybe he’s just full of himself,” Moody said.
Stracci said Murchek knows his accomplishments and contributions to the community will be overshadowed by his criminal conduct.
“He will be punished forever for a lie, for an unexplainable lie,” Stracci said.
And here comes the comeuppance for the Jack booted thugs. Not in the streets , but in the court room; Convicted by those that they oppress. A road bandit with a rage to kill and a power trip will no longer walk away. The old saying , Lay down with dogs and wake up with fleas applies here. Everyone is catching on to who these people behind these badges are. Viral videos circulate among young and old alike , exposing rampant abuse and violence. We live in an age with no respect for the likes of those who patrol our streets and abuse our citizens. We live in an age when a bystander films as a cop is overcome by an enraged citizen and no help is offered. There are so many cases of shootings, beatings, lying and corruption to be seen that the moral high ground has been given over and no one just assumes the cop is in the right. Few are willing to give default hero status anymore based on the color of a uniform. They have brought this on themselves and in the coming times are going to be paying for it. Go ahead, enjoy your time as a tough guy on the street. Garner all the power you can, order, abuse and control ; Until it catches up to you and you get your day in court
“DALLAS, Texas —
Jurors are deciding the fate of a former Texas police officer who was convicted of murder for fatally shooting a black, unarmed teenager last year in suburban Dallas.
Wednesday marks the second day of the sentencing phase in the trial of Roy Oliver, who was convicted Tuesday for the 2017 slaying of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards. Edwards was killed when Oliver, a police officer in Balch Springs at the time, fired into a car full of black teenagers as it drove away from a house party.
In a rare guilty verdict in a police shooting case, the Dallas County jurors were not swayed by Oliver’s claim that he feared for his partner’s life when he fired into the vehicle.”
“But prosecutors described Oliver as out of control and looking for a reason to kill. They argued that his firing into the car wasn’t reasonable.
The shooting came after Oliver and his partner, Tyler Gross, had broken up the party. Both officers were inside the residence when they heard gunfire outside and responded. Authorities later determined the shots were fired near a nursing home in the area.
Oliver retrieved his rifle and went toward Gross, who was ordering the car carrying Edwards to stop. Oliver testified that he saw the car back up and stop for a second before moving forward and going toward Gross.
Oliver told the jury the car was about to hit his partner. Oliver said he felt he had no other option but to fire. Gross, however, testified that he did not fear for his life and never felt the need to fire his weapon. He also said he didn’t feel like the vehicle was trying to hit him.
Prosecutors said Oliver fired after the vehicle passed Gross. Investigators also said no guns were found in the teens’ vehicle.”

The police chief of a coastal North Carolina city and another officer have been arrested after authorities say an investigation found they were working at second jobs while on the clock.
Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David said at a press conference Thursday that the two Southport officers had a “habitual and repeated pattern” of leaving their police posts for work at a trucking company.
David said Police Chief Gary Smith and Lt. Mike Simmons left Southport and even the state at times.
Both face charges including obtaining property by false pretenses. It wasn’t immediately clear if either had an attorney. Attempts to reach them were not successful.”

But wait, a hero and sworn officer of the court wouldn’t lie would they? The police Chief? He must be some kind of extra hero , right?
No, they are just typical cops who think they are above the law and can make up a lie to cover whatever they do
Time after time, from beatings, to bad arrests, to the killing of unarmed citizens, entire squads of cops will lie to cover one of their own
I guess it gets easier when your word can’t be impugned and is automatically given the weight of truth by the courts
These guys just went a little too far and pissed the wrong people off

Go on, go on; Keep telling yourself that it is just a few bad apples
That’s easier than facing the truth about how corrupt the whole system is
It’s easier than admitting how much danger you are really in when you have an encounter with one of these road bandits on a dark highway
It takes a certain type of person to want to control others for a living and this is what you get in the end
In a survey by a National police organization 45% of respondents (Officers) stated that they had witnessed police misconduct and said nothing about it
Makes you wonder about a police culture that allows a scum like the above mentioned to rise to the top
Good luck and happy travels and here’s to hoping you won’t encounter any of this guys buddies on a dark lonely Texas county highway
