“Authorities in Florida have arrested a former sheriff’s deputy after an investigation found he routinely pulled over drivers for minor traffic infractions and then arrested them after planting drugs inside their vehicles, officials said.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said in a release that agents arrested 26-year-old Zachary Wester on Wednesday morning on felony charges of racketeering, official misconduct, fabricating evidence, possession of a controlled substance and false imprisonment.
The former sheriff’s deputy was also charged with misdemeanor perjury, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The office said the arrest came as a result of an investigation it launched at the request of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office last year.
“The investigation shows Wester routinely pulled over citizens for alleged minor traffic infractions, planted drugs inside their vehicles and arrested them on fabricated drug charges,” the department said. “Wester circumvented JCSO’s body camera policy and tailored his recordings to conceal his criminal activity.”
You just can’t make up some of the sick. twisted shit that people on power trips will do. From beating old ladies to shooting dogs and children, their is no end to their feeling of self empowerment. Think I am exaggerating? Go to this site’s search bar and enter the term “Rape”. Who ever would suspect that people who want to control others for a living would be so sexually violent? One of my personal votes for the Golden cop award (Besides the one above) is the Alabama cop who pulled over a man for loud music and forced him to perform oral sex at gunpoint in the back of his squad car. https://deborahleejarrett.com/2016/12/09/cop-pulls-man-over-for-loud-music-forces-him-to-give-him-oral-sex-at-gun-point/ ……….A few bad apples my ass. Were that the case then I would have a hard time running this website. Unfortunately for myself and you and our families, it is all too easy. And don’t forget the rest of the old adage….” A bad apple Spoils the whole bin
A former Louisiana deputy was arrested with child pornography charges in relation to an infant rape.
St. Gabriel Police chief Kevin Ambeau said former Deputy Shadrick Jones is accused of coercing a mother to perform a sexual act on her one-year-old son to avoid being arrested for not appearing in court for a traffic violation.
Police say the incident happened on June 6 about 30 minutes after Jones’ shift ended. He was working for the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The mother has been identified as Iyehesa Todd. According to NBC affiliate WVLA, Todd was arrested and charged with first-degree rape and incest. She was booked into the Iberville Parish jail.
Police say Jones filmed the rape on his personal phone. They confirmed the video belonged to Jones.
“I’ve never seen anything so disgusting and sickening in my life,” Ambeau said. “I’ve also reached out to the Baton Rouge of Homeland Security to see if we can bring in federal charges.”
Ambeau emphasized that there are more good police officers than bad, but “this Jones is a bad apple.”
What a douche sweetheart this hardened law enforcer is. How many people have had to deal with her on the streets? Think they got a little attitude and maybe some made up reports? And if you read up on her a little more you will find that she has been on “Limited duty” for a year and a half. She wasn’t allowed to carry a gun after a domestic incident. That’s right, they knew that she was a psycho yet still allowed her to remain on the force. Why not? She is in good company
“A New York City cop has been arrested in a murder-for-hire plot aimed at her ex-husband and her boyfriend’s daughter, federal authorities announced Friday.
Valerie Cincinelli, 34, was charged with conspiracy to commit murder after allegedly trying to enlist her boyfriend to hire a hit man to kill his “minor daughter” and her former spouse, Isaiah Carvalho Jr. She was immediately suspended without pay following her arrest Friday by the FBI and the department’s internal affairs unit, an NYPD spokesperson confirmed to The Daily Beast.
Cincinelli’s boyfriend will not be charged and is cooperating with investigators, the spokesperson said.”
“According to a complaint filed in U.S District Court in the Eastern District of New York, Cincinelli “requested” that her boyfriend “hire a hit man to murder” the pair, to which he responded that he “knew someone who would do it for $7,000.” On February 17, Cincincelli allegedly withdrew the cash and converted it into “gold coins.”
On May 8, the complaint alleges, her boyfriend expressed concern over the two murders happening in the same weekend, so Cincinelli advised him to “have the hit man kill [the daughter] over the weekend and then wait a week or a month to kill [her ex-husband].” She allegedly added that they would be murdered in “separate locations” since the daughter “was in New Jersey during the week and in New York on the weekends.”
“Cincinelli further stated that, if questioned about the murders, she would have nothing to worry about because she would be at home at the time of the murders,” the complaint alleges.
In another conversation, Cincinelli asked her boyfriend how the “hitman was going to carry out the murders” and discussed their respective alibis if they were “questioned by the police,” the complaint states.
While discussing how the hitman did not want to murder the girl near her school, Cincinelli allegedly responded: “[r]un her the fuck over, how about that.”
If you still think that this is just a few bad apples then I have a bridge to sell you in New York. Enough of the default hero status because they strap on a gun and hang a badge off their shirt. These are people who have chosen this job so they could control others. They have been handed more power than anyone in that position ever should have. What could possibly go wrong? I think this shows what. Don’t forget that whatever this chief, or any cop anywhere, reports is given the weight of truth. If some lying scumbag cop says that you shoved him, spit on him etc. It is up to you to prove that you didn’t . Unless you have video rolling, you are screwed. You will be in jail. The chief got away with this simply because they chose to believe his lies. It tells you as much about them as it does him
“AMSTERDAM, Ohio – In the days after they ousted their police chief, the leaders of this town realized that the real mess he’d made wasn’t the jumble of trash and misplaced evidence that cluttered his office. It was what was buried underneath.
There they found forms featuring the mayor’s apparently forged signature that David Cimperman used to add more than 30 officers to the town’s police roster – one for every 16 residents. Many never did any paid police work for the town, logging hours instead for a private security business that state investigators say Cimperman ran on the side. He tried to outfit them with high-end radios. The riot gear and other surplus military equipment he bought with taxpayer money are missing.
What they didn’t find was evidence that the police force built out of fear of being without help in an emergency did much actual police work.”
“Even now, the people who hired Cimperman don’t know the depth of what went wrong in the part-time police force of this small town in the hills of northeastern Ohio. The new chief says he’s consulted with state criminal investigators to help figure it out.
What they know is that they could have prevented it all with a single phone call. They hired a chief without knowing he’d been fired for perjury, quit a job as his bosses started investigating missing police equipment and was charged with a felony for tampering with police radios to make untraceable phone calls.”
“Cimperman’s journey from disgraced police officer to police chief is a surprisingly common one, a USA TODAY Network investigation found.
Misconduct that might disqualify someone from being hired as a rookie cop hasn’t stopped officers from taking the top jobs at law enforcement agencies throughout the USA.”
“Police forces – and the officers they employ – have come under intense public scrutiny in recent years after a succession of high-profile scandals including questionable shootings and commanders who have themselves become criminals. The USA TODAY Network gathered misconduct records from hundreds of police departments and state licensing boards in nearly every state to shed light on the profession, amassing one of the largest stores of information on police wrongdoing.”
“The USA TODAY Network identified 32 people who became police chiefs or sheriffs despite a finding of serious misconduct, usually at another department. At least eight of them were found guilty of a crime. Others amassed records of domestic violence, improperly withholding evidence, falsifying records or other conduct that could impact the public they swore to serve.
In North Dakota, officials picked as their sheriff a man who’d led his co-workers on a 100 mph chase after drinking. A dispatcher summoned him to assist in his own pursuit. In Georgia, an officer fired from the state police after investigators found he’d carried out numerous on-duty affairs and lied about it landed a job as a small-town chief. A Washington trooper who was convicted of rendering criminal assistance in a case involving his son found work leading a small department in that state.
Those chiefs almost certainly represent only a small glimpse at the larger issue, because the records reporters were able to examine cover a small fraction of U.S. law enforcement agencies.”
Excerpted from here with a heads up to Bob for his help:
Now let this sink in…. They had this information in hand when he was charged and went to trial. The cops knew, the D.A knew, the prosecutor knew and so did the judge. They covered the best they could for this state sponsored psychopathic thug….. His only undoing was that there was raw video of him committing murder. Don’t think that this is an isolated incident , because it is not. Cops will lie every time…And why? Because they can. They are on the brutality end of the state’s protection racket. Because of the “Heroes” out on the street, the state is able to generate enough income to keep them all in giant paychecks and run the prison industrial complex. Change? My ass. There are billions and billions at stake and they won’t give up a dime or a dram of power. Change will only come when enough people are so fed up that they finally storm the Bastille and hold all personally accountable. Change is not going to come by cops, prosecutors and judges investigating cops; They all have too much vested in the system as is clearly shown by this case.
“According to documents released last week under a new California police transparency law, former BART police officer Anthony Pirone assaulted 22-yer-old Oscar Grant, called him the N-word, and lied about what led to another officer eventually opening fire and killing the young father, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Pirone claimed that he was “fighting for his life,” according to documents stemming from an internal investigation completed by an outside law firm after Grant’s death in 2009. In reality, Pirone instigated the incident with “repeated and unnecessary use of force” with Grant, along with his use of racial slurs.
Grant was pronounced dead nine hours after the BART shooting, in one of the first cases of extrajudicial murder to be caught on cellphone video and circulated via social media. Grant’s family were awarded more than $2.5 million from BART.
“Pirone was, in large part, responsible for setting the events in motion that created a chaotic and tense situation on the platform,” the document states, “setting the stage, even if inadvertent, for the shooting of Oscar Grant.”
Johannes Mehserle eventually shot and killed Grant. He served the minimum two-year sentence after being found guilty of manslaughter. Mehserle said he believed he had pulled his taser when he pulled his gun, though documents also suggest he was aware he was pulling his gun.
Mehserle can be seen, as the document states, “standing over Grant,” before reaching for his gun and “firing one round into the back of Grant.”
WYANDOTTE COUNTY, KS (KCTV) – A Wyandotte County deputy was booked into jail midday Tuesday on charges of rape and sexual exploitation of a child.
Michael Mastel,52, is charged with raping someone under the age of 14. Prosecutors said the criminal actions were all involving a single victim.
Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office District Attorney Mark Dupree said the incidents happened at least three times from December 2011 and between March and June of last year. The victim came forward to tell what happened and authorities got involved.
“The defendant is alleged to have committed these acts with a child he knew and interacted with not in the course of his work with the sheriff’s office,” Dupree said.
Mastel began working for the sheriff’s office in August of 2008 and is now on administrative leave without pay.
