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/
(2) Seriously just read the pages on this site . https://deborahleejarrett.com/
Just a few bad apples right? Of course it is and that would explain why I have hundreds of pages and thousands of stories posted here. These cops lying, stealing and worse are not anomalies, but rather the norm. Why tell the truth when you can lie and it will believed because of your blue privilege? Why not swagger and throw your ass around when you are backed up by all of your cohorts who do the same? It is not a far jump from that starting point to theft, cover up and civil rights violations. Any time you are in contact with LEO, both your life and freedom are in danger.You never know the true face that hides behind that badge and gun….. Until you see it.
“A Paterson police sergeant was arrested Tuesday as part of an internal affairs and FBI investigation into corruption within the city’s department, authorities said Tuesday.
Sgt. Michael Cheff is the eighth city police officer arrested in the FBI’s corruption probe that began three years ago, Police Director Jerry Speziale said.”
“Cheff is accused of civil rights violations and falsifying police reports. According to an FBI complaint, Cheff is accused of stealing more than $2,000 from the safe of an alleged drug dealer and sometimes falsified paperwork to cover up the thefts of money that other officers stole.”
“The investigation has focused on police officers who allegedly stole thousands in cash from people after illegally stopping and searching their vehicles.
Last year, Officer Daniel Pent admitted to being part of a conspiracy in which the officers routinely illegally stopped residents, both in their vehicles and on the street, and stole money and other items from them.
Cheff, who has been on the job since 1996, was the sergeant who supervised five former patrol officers who have pleaded guilty to taking money from motorists, passengers and other people they illegally stopped.”

“A Baltimore police officer caught on tape last year beating a suspect went to prison this year. A veteran police sergeant filmed allegedly arresting, threatening and harassing innocent men faces a slew of charges. And more officers tied to the Gun Trace Task Force were charged or sentenced in federal court.
A violent 2019 in the city was also a busy year for prosecutors, internal affairs detectives and others charged with policing Baltimore’s police. Court records, sentencing memorandums and Baltimore Sun archives show that at least 20 Baltimore police officers — including some who are no longer with the department — were either charged, sentenced, or suspended during 2019.
The scope of the crimes and allegations are broad and follow a particularly notorious 2018, which included federal arrests and trials of officers of the GTTF, and another officer charged with drug trafficking. This year’s charges range from drunken driving to an officer being sentenced to five years in prison after nearly running over a man in a crosswalk, then drawing his gun after the man spilled tea on his car.
The public relations damage crested in October, when Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said she had a list of “hundreds of officers” with alleged credibility issues.
A total of 305 officers were flagged in Mosby’s list that was forwarded to the department this month.
Baltimore police officials say they are working to address not only problems in the department, but also to become more responsive to members of the public. Police Commissioner Michael Harrison released a staffing plan last week that calls for more than doubling the number of internal affairs detectives to help reduce backlogs and respond more swiftly to complaints against officers.”
Are you surprised that he lied about it? Why shouldn’t he, he is after all a “sworn officer of the court” . He lied because he could; he lied because he had blue privileged. As long as “They go home safe”…. Right. Any time you are in contact with LEO you are in a lot more danger than they are. You are about to be subjected to an armed power monger and it can go very badly if it doesn’t go your way. Maybe he will feel like being the nice guy that day and you drive off…. Or maybe not. Maybe you will get to meet the man behind the badge and find out why he chose to exert control over people for a living. Think about that the next time you have cherries flashing in your rear view.
“Philadelphia Police Sgt. Jason Reid — who a judge said committed “outrageous” misconduct by assaulting a man and covering it up — was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with assault, tampering with public records, false reports, and obstructing the administration of law.
Reid, 42, a 16-year veteran of the force who spent much of his career in the Highway Patrol unit, was suspended from the department with intent to dismiss after 30 days, according to a police spokesperson, who declined to comment further.”
” District Attorney Larry Krasner said the arrest followed an Internal Affairs investigation of an incident that took place June 8.
On that day, Reid placed Ronald Wallace in handcuffs in the back of a police car — and then, body camera footage showed, held Wallace’s head with one hand and punched him in the face with the other. Reid then arrested Wallace for threatening an officer and resisting arrest. In paperwork, he reported that Wallace’s injuries resulted from Wallace repeatedly hitting his own head against the car window.”
“According to court records, at least five other people had previously filed complaints with Philadelphia police saying Reid punched them in the face or head — but none of those complaints was sustained by the department’s Internal Affairs unit.”
“The charges echo repeated allegations made by defense lawyers over Reid’s unusually long history of citizen complaints, including 10 allegations of physical abuse, and uses of force, including the shootings of six people in the course of duty. None of the complaints against him were sustained, according to the documents. All of the previous uses of deadly force were deemed to be within department guidelines.
In May of this year, Reid received an official commendation for his role in a traffic stop: a Medal of Bravery “for the performance of an outstanding arrest where the officer’s effort is met by an armed and dangerous adversary.” That was the January 2018 arrest of 22-year-old Stefon Crawley, whom Reid and another officer, Timothy Stephan, shot a total of five times after finding a gun in his possession during a traffic stop.”
Just remember, any time that you get pulled over, that the man or woman with the gun and handcuffs may have the moral integrity of these two cretins. Your freedom or possibly your life could be in jeopardy any time you have contact with them. Hero is an action, not a color.
From the Dallas times
Joseph Bobadilla and Rebecca Evans were charged with theft. Bobadilla is accused of stealing items from the leveled store and exchanging them at other stores for credit, sheriff’s office says
Two Dallas County sheriff’s deputies were arrested Thursday after they were accused of stealing from a Home Depot store destroyed by a tornado last month.

The sheriff’s office said Bobadilla had been working off-duty guarding the Home Depot store after it was destroyed.
“During his shifts, Bobadilla would take items from the store and later exchange them at another location for in-store credit, subsequently purchasing items with the in-store credits he received,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release. Details on Evans’ arrest weren’t immediately available.”
