Scumbag cop arrested in Florida for planting drugs on drivers

636023202644237140-1022172843_disarm20police

“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.”

Court rules to protect names of lying cops

You can’t have one without the other. The courts and the corrupt judges sitting on the bench need these lying cops to bring proceeds into their courts.   No lies, no convictions, no money to run a hugely expensive system.  The courts criminal courts have now become a self perpetuating bureaucracy.     Right or wrong does not exist only revenue does. Take a plea , pay the fine and pay the salaries of those set out to persecute you.

“The names of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies who’ve lied, stolen, falsified reports and committed other types of “moral” misconduct are confidential and cannot be handed over to prosecutors — even in pending criminal cases in which the deputies are listed as potential witnesses — a Los Angeles appeals court ruled Tuesday.

The decision by the state’s 2nd District Court of Appeal makes clear just how secret officers’ identities and personnel files are in California. The ruling is also the latest turn in the fight over a secret list compiled by Los Angeles County’s sheriff of 300 deputies whose history of misconduct could damage their credibility if they are ever called to testify in criminal cases.

“It’s a victory for cops everywhere,” said Elizabeth Gibbons, an attorney for the Assn. for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, the union that represents rank-and-file deputies.

Last fall, the union sued the department over Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell’s attempt to disclose the names to the district attorney’s office. The union had argued that revealing the names to prosecutors, even in pending cases, would violate state peace officer confidentiality laws and draw unfair scrutiny of deputies whose mistakes might have happened long ago.

The appeals court agreed on the strict confidentiality of law enforcement personnel files. But it left open the possibility that names could be disclosed pursuant to a court order.

California has some of the strictest protections on law enforcement officer records in the country. Discipline hearings, personnel files and even the names of officers accused in internal affairs investigations are secret.

“Notifying an outside agency, even a prosecutor’s office, that a deputy has an administratively founded allegation of misconduct involving moral turpitude cannot be characterized as anything other than disclosing information obtained from the peace officer’s personnel file,” the court said in its opinion.

But some advocates for police transparency slammed the decision.

“There should not be greater concern for protecting officers with histories of lying, domestic abuse, evidence tampering and other immoral conduct from public scrutiny than for ensuring that individuals accused of crimes receive a fair trial,” said Melanie Ochoa, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California.

The ACLU, along with other advocacy groups, filed a friend-of-the-court brief in March, asking the appeals court to reject the deputies union’s request that none of the names of problem deputies be sent to prosecutors.

Brady vs. Maryland

McDonnell’s effort to send deputies’ names to prosecutors had nothing to do with recommending that the officers be charged with crimes, the department contended. Instead it would have been a heads-up to the district attorney’s office that the deputies were potentially vulnerable to attacks on their credibility if they were ever called to testify, and that prosecutors would potentially have to alert defense attorneys about the names.

Under the 1963 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brady vs. Maryland, prosecutors are obligated to alert defendants to any evidence that could aid the defense. That evidence includes information that could undermine an officer’s credibility. Not doing so could result in wrongful convictions.

Right now, police agencies in at least a dozen counties in California regularly do precisely what McDonnell was attempting. Some departments, including those in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura, have been giving prosecutors the names of problem officers for well over a decade.

Legal experts say Tuesday’s decision could begin to change that.

Although the ruling pertains to the Sheriff’s Department, analysts say it could embolden police unions across the state to refuse a prosecutor’s request to identify problematic officers who might be called as witnesses.”

Off duty cop directing traffic fires into van full of children

And who would have guessed? The cowardly scumbag lied about the incident to try and justify it. He tried to use the old “Feared for his life” on a van full of children.     What a hero this guy is. The report states that he ran along side of the van and shot after it went around him. That’s right; he was pissed because the van didn’t stop and went around him.  This is the caliber of person you get who chooses a job controlling others at gun point.    Remember this guy the next time you hear a cop giving testimony. Chances are he is most likely to be the one telling lies.

 

ATLANTA – Channel 2 Action News has confirmed the Atlanta police officer who opened fire on a man driving a van behind the Georgia Dome has been fired for using excessive force.

Channel 2’s Nefertiti Jaquez has obtained documents that show Sgt. Mathieu Cadeau’s has been terminated from the department.

“The reality is, the physical evidence doesn’t lie,” attorney Shean Williams told Jaquez after reviewing the documents confirming Cadeau’s termination.

Williams represents Noel Hall, of North Carolina, who was shot by Cadeau while driving his van out of a motocross event at the Georgia Dome in February.

“The law is clear. You cannot fire. You cannot fire a deadly weapon without your life or someone’s life being in danger,” Williams said.

Jaquez spoke on the phone Thursday night  to Hall, who said he was pleased to hear Cadeau had been removed from the force.

“Extremely happy, I think it’s the first step in justice,” Hall said. “What would make him think I was trying to accelerate at him with kids and grandkids in the car?”

According to the documents, Cadeau was working an off-duty job directing traffic along Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard that night.

He told investigators he shot at Hall’s van because, “I was in fear of my safety, the safety of other traffic personnel and the pedestrians.”

“The driver looked away and then made a hard left turn with high acceleration,” Cadeau said in his report.


“If his life was in danger he would have emptied a clip in me, he wouldn’t have just shot one time,” Hall told Jaquez.

Investigators didn’t think Cadeau’s story added up.

They said he was standing near the driver’s side window when he fired at the van so he was never in danger of being hit by Hall.

They also interviewed a witness who said, “As the driver drove around the two officers, one officer ran alongside the van and ‘popped a shot off.'”

“There is no reasonable excuse for what happened,” Williams said.

Jaquez went to Cadeau’s home for comment, but no one was there.

Documents indicate that Cadeau was notified of the firing May 8, which will become effective on Friday.

Sources close to this case told Jaquez that the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office is now investigating whether criminal charges should be brought against Cadeau.

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.”

New York City’s finest Indicted in Bogus Drug Bust

More scumbag cops lying to make an arrest. So much for sworn officers of the court, Huh?

“Two New York Police Department detectives were indicted on a charge of faking a cocaine arrest in Queens, leading to a man spending more than 50 days at Rikers Island, the Queens district attorney’s office said Tuesday.

A Queens grand jury indicted Detectives Kevin Desormeau and Sasha Neve, both 33 years old and 10-year department veterans, prosecutors said. The officers face similar charges in connection with a different arrest in Manhattan.

Both pleaded not guilty Tuesday during an arraignment in Queens and were released without bail. Lawyers for the detectives didn’t respond to requests for comment. The NYPD said both were suspended.

The officers, who had been assigned to the department’s gang unit, arrested a man on Aug. 28, 2014, on charges of selling crack cocaine to a woman on a Queens street corner, police said. Det. Desormeau said in a court affidavit that he observed the man and woman exchanging cocaine, and recovered rock cocaine from the man’s waistband, according to prosecutors.

Surveillance video from inside a restaurant showed the arrested man playing pool during the time the cocaine sale supposedly took place. The video also shows the two detectives taking the man outside, prosecutors said.

The drug charges against the man have been dismissed, prosecutors said.”
