“LOS ALAMOS COUNTY, New Mexico — Sporting an orange shirt and striped pants issued by the Los Alamos County Detention Center, Rio Arriba County Sheriff James Lujan was arraigned and released from custody Friday, after being arrested the day prior for failing to comply with a search warrant.
Española police and Taos County deputies arrested Lujan when he refused to unlock a cellphone officers believe was used while Lujan obstructed an active SWAT standoff in March.
The arraignment was moved to Los Alamos after both magistrate judges in Rio Arriba County recused themselves.
Los Alamos Magistrate Court Judge Pat Casados said Lujan would be released on his own recognizance. Under his conditions for release, Lujan is not allowed to possess a firearm, consume any alcoholic beverage or enter a liquor establishment.
However, Lujan and his attorney Nathaniel Thompkins said the sheriff would need his gun while still working as the head law enforcement official in Rio Arriba.
“I understand that you are an officer,” Casados said. “It does worry me, but I’m going to put that you can have a weapon only at work.”
Casados also said Lujan could enter a liquor establishment if required to do so while working as a law enforcement official.
Ninth Judicial District Attorney Andrea Reeb, who will prosecute Lujan in a separate obstruction case in district court, said she was not surprised that Lujan was allowed to keep his firearm, but that most police officers would have been put on administrative leave and had their gun confiscated.
She also said it’s unclear exactly when Lujan would be off duty, since many sheriffs are on-call at all hours.
State Attorney General Hector Balderas appointed Reeb to prosecute the case against Lujan after 1st Judicial District Attorney Marco Serna recused himself. Balderas also granted Reeb the authority to prosecute any charges stemming from Thursday’s arrest.
Reeb said she will file to combine the charges, meaning Lujan will face three charges of resisting and obstructing officers.
So far, five of the eight judges in the 1st Judicial District Court have recused themselves from overseeing Lujan’s case. ”
Who wants power and control over others? Who chooses a career that allows them to be an authority figure? Who has more in common with bullies, wife beaters and child molesters? That’s right, your neighborhood hero in blue. Remember that the next time you get pulled over on a dark highway.
“A Mississippi police officer accused of soliciting a 16-year-old girl for sex was identified by the victim’s attorney Tuesday and later ordered to stay away from the accuser and her family, officials said
A Jackson police officer was arrested Saturday and charged with exploitation of a minor, news outlets reported.
On Monday, the Jackson Police Department said a patrolman was arrested and later placed on administrative leave. The department hasn’t identified the officer nor has it released details regarding the case. A mugshot of the officer wasn’t released.
A May 9 affidavit accused the officer of coercing the teen and giving her a cellphone so she could later meet with him to engage in “sexually explicit conduct,” The Clarion-Ledger reported.
The victim’s attorney, Lisa Ross, identified the officer on Tuesday. She later accused the police department of giving the officer special treatment because he was released from jail Saturday on an unsecured $50,000 bond, news outlets reported.
Police Chief James Davis responded at a separate news conference by saying the department arrested the officer once it learned of the allegations, adding that the department does not “deal with” bonds.”
LAKELAND, Fla. — A video showing what appears to be a Polk County deputy punching a handcuffed suspect two times before placing him inside the back of a marked deputy cruiser is making rounds on social media.
The graphic video, sent to ABC Action News on Thursday, shows a man wearing a neon green t-shirt, later identified as 20-year-old Fernando Jimenez, being taken into custody by two Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
As one of the deputies holds Jimenez to the back of the cruiser, the second deputy appears to have punched Jimenez twice before placing him inside.
One of the punches appears to have hit Jimenez in the head.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the deputy punched Jimenez “whenever he was trying to get him under control.”
Who would guess that a guy who wants to control people for a living would end up being a child molester? The other cops like to do the high and mighty because he is a child molester , but….. According to the purple Berets , a women’s advocacy cops are 4 times more likely to commit domestic abuse (And six times less to be prosecuted) than the average citizen. Additionally , according to a national police chiefs survey, 47 % of cops witnessed activity by other cops that was illegal and did not report it. (Add the 47% to the ones actually doing the deed and that is a large number) It is the nature of the game that attracts the animal and in this case it attracts bullies, wife beaters, sadists, power mongers and the occasional child molester. The good cops? They are the true rarity and they usually get out of the game when they figure it out . And yes, his name really is Wigglesworth
“Wigglesworth was arrested by the FDLE, which charged him with two counts of sexual battery of a child younger than 12 and three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12. According to Sheriff Mike Prendergast, Wigglesworth was hired July 2, 2018.”
“Wigglesworth was booked into the Citrus County Jail and ordered held without bond until after first appearance, which is scheduled for Saturday. The case will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office, Fifth Judicial Circuit.”
Sounds like a coincidence doesn’t it ? Make sure that the cops don’t have body cams so they can lie, cheat, steal and beat the crap out of people with impunity. But, welcome to the cell phone age because you are on camera. People have had enough of the police state and enough of out of control cops. It is time for them to be reigned in and reminded that we not only pay their salaries, but out number them a 1000 to 1. Smarten up bully boys because you are soon to reap the whirlwind.
“St Johns County deputy sheriff Anthony J Deleo, Jr hit Christopher Butler 19-times with his baton and kicked him in the head twice while Butler was unarmed; and Historic City News readers know this because it was captured on video taken by an alert citizen using his smartphone. The technology for police to create their own video using body cameras has been a possibility since the early-2000’s.
Deleo’s boss, lame-duck sheriff David Shoar, withdrew Deleo’s commission today, ending his employment with the sheriff’s office. Shoar also filed a criminal complaint with the State Attorney of the 7th Judicial Circuit who will review the case and decide if the charge against Deleo will be prosecuted. Deleo is facing a charge of aggravated battery, a second-degree felony, for his use of force against Christopher Butler during the December 29th traffic stop.
Two other deputies who were involved in the incident, Joseph McGinnis and Patrick Ponticello, were placed on paid administrative leave after the video surfaced. Those deputies will not face criminal charges, according to Shoar; but their actions are still being investigated by internal affairs. The trooper who pulled Butler over and used his Taser on him was not disciplined, according to televised reports from an unnamed spokesman with the Florida Highway Patrol.
Butler’s lawyer, Attorney John Phillips, said he is looking into filing suit against the sheriff’s office, as well as the deputies involved. He claims that the lack of camera, particularly with St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office that refuses body cams, and the lack of video oversight, is an attempt to gain immunity.
In a public statement from Phillips, he said that he hopes more arrests are not coming. “We hope reform is coming. This is the first step towards justice. If you have information or have been abused by the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, please come forward.”
Shoar made a front-page splash recently accompanied by his delegate, St Augustine Beach police chief Robert Hardwick (who is concurrently Robert Hardwick candidate for sheriff). Both men and St Augustine City Police Chief Barry Fox arrogantly proclaimed that body cameras, which monitor an officer’s activity during a shift, invade personal privacy, come at a high cost, and lack sufficient accuracy.”
Don’t worry at all when you get pulled over on a dark highway. That guy behind the badge and the gun is a regular hero. He risks his life everyday to keep you safe. He and his brethren in blue are all that stand between society and anarchy…….So, don’t be afraid when he says that he wants to handcuff you…. Just for his safety. I mean really, what could possibly go wrong ?
“EATONTON, Ga. – A former Eatonton police officer arrested last week on domestic violence charges has been arrested and charged in the murder of his wife.
Michael Seth Perrault, 43, was arrested Wednesday, Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills confirmed late Wednesday evening.
His wife, 44-year-old Amanda Pardue Perrault, of 133 Long Island Drive, Eatonton was found dead of a gunshot wound at the couple’s home near Lake Oconee on Monday afternoon.
She was shot once in the head with a .380-caliber handgun, according to Sills, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The shooting, which happened in the couple’s bedroom, stemmed from a domestic argument between Amanda Perrault and her husband, Michael Perrault, then an officer with the Eatonton Police Department, Sills told reporters at his office Tuesday morning.
Sills said Monday that Michael Perrault told him that he witnessed his wife shoot herself.
After the shooting, Michael Perrault telephoned Eatonton Police Chief Kent Lawrence to report what had happened.
The police chief then called Sills to inform him.
Shortly after 1:30 p.m. deputies and Detective Lt. Harry Luke and Detective Chris Harper along with Sills arrived on the scene and discovered the victim in the bedroom.
Sills said he later made a telephone call to the GBI office in Milledgeville to request the assistance of their crime scene unit.
Just last week, Perrault, 43, was arrested at his home on misdemeanor charges of simple assault under the Georgia Family Violence Act and cruelty to children in the third degree.
A short time after being taken to the jail, Eatonton Police Chief Kent Lawrence said he placed Perrault on administrative leave without pay, pending the completion of an internal investigation.”
Go figure. Other than cops, who likes to have power and control over others?
VERONA, Pa. —
“Verona Borough Council voted unanimously Tuesday evening to terminate Verona borough police Officer Anthony Ogline, who is charged with child pornography.
Borough Manager Jerry Kenna said the actions of Ogline do not represent the borough of Verona. Ogline was arrested and charged last week with child pornography. He was immediately suspended without pay.
On Jan. 16, Whitehall police were investigating after a 16-year-old boy walked away from his school at midday and got into a black sedan.
Police tracked the boy’s location to an address in Verona borough Jan. 17. According to the criminal complaint, the address was owned by Ogline, a Verona borough police officer.
As police attempted to make contact, Ogline arrived in his car with the boy.
Police said Ogline had picked the boy up from school and provided him with alcohol and marijuana and exchanged pornographic images with him.
Ogline said he did provide alcohol to the teen, but denied smoking marijuana and said he would consent to a drug test to prove that.
Ogline has been charged with possession of child pornography, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors and several other charges.”
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.”

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/
