MIAMI COP ARRESTED FOR SNORTING COCAINE IN CLUB

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018
The term “Turning up” is used by urban America that describes disorderly conduct via alcohol or illicit drugs. A Miami, Florida cop was arrested for “Turning Up” via snorting cocaine up his nose at a popular south Florida club known as E11even Miami.
The nightclub’s surveillance video confirmed his actions. The video hasn’t been released yet because it’s considered investigative file.

The City of Los Angeles Police Department and it’s Chief Charlie Beck have had one troublesome week but not as bad a Police Officer Robert Cain’s.

Monday, May 15th, 2017
A California deputy facing up to five years in prison for selling drugs seized during raids issued an apology in a Youtube video blaming satan for his misdeeds.

WATCH: Surveillance Video of Florida Cop Shooting Retired Librarian during “Shoot/Don’t Shoot” Training Exercise Released

Thursday, April 20th, 2017
The surveillance video showing Punta Gorda police officer Lee Coel shooting and killing a retired librarian during a “shoot/don’t shoot” citizen’s academy training exercise last year was obtained by a local television news station, showing the cop dressed in a hoodie and playing the role of a thug before pulling the trigger.
But it was obvious Coel was a thug long before he shot and killed Mary Knowlton, a 73-year-old retired librarian who joined the academy to show her support for police at a time when cops were receiving negative press for killing unarmed citizens.
However, these signs were ignored by

Ohio Cop Sexually Assaults Women with Sex Toy during Traffic Stop

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017
East Cleveland police officer Kenneth Bolton Jr. had no reason to pull the women over because they had already been cited by another officer 30 minutes earlier.
But he probably heard they were attractive, both of them in their early 20s. And he may have even heard they had a sex toy in the back seat.
Cops tend to get off on these things, so word spreads fast.
The 16-year police veteran then used the sex toy to grope both women between their legs during the February 23 traffic stop.
Now he is not only out of a job, but is facing ten

Monday, March 27th, 2017

A Louisiana cop who fatally shot a 6-year-old autistic boy five times on November 3, 2015 was convicted of the crime on Friday.
Marksville city marshal Derrick Stafford found himself in hot water before in 2011 when he was indicted on two counts of aggravated rape for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, but Rapides Parish assistant district attorney Monique Metoyer dismissed the charges without explanation.
During the recent trial, Stafford testified in his own defense and attempted to explain to jurors why he didn’t render any aid to 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis, who was riding in the passenger seat with his father

WATCH: Minneapolis Cop Charged for Kicking Man in Face and Lying About It

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

These days it is not uncommon for cops to get arrested for assault.
But Officer Christopher Reiter, 36, of the Minneapolis Police Department took things way too far when he kicked Mohamed Osman while he was already down on the ground.
Osman suffered severe brain injuries, brain bleeding and ended up with fractures in his face, including sinus fractures in his nose.
Because of the injuries, Osman is unable to work.
The on-duty assault occurred in Spring 2016, but Reiter was not arrested until March 15, 2017 after he and fellow officers lied about what had taken place that night – only for

Two NYPD Cops Indicted Twice in Two Months for Falsely Jailing Two Innocent Men

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Two NYPD cops thought they had an open-and-shut case when they arrested a man on drug charges, claiming he had seven grams of cocaine in his waistband, which could easily have sent him to prison for several years.
But now they are the ones facing a prison sentence after a surveillance camera proved they made the charges up.
The two New York City police detectives, Kevin Desormeau and Sasha Cordoba, both 33, were indicted Tuesday by the Queens District Attorney after a grand jury found enough evidence that they committed perjury and wrote false reports.

Minnesota Cop who Fired at Car for Mistakenly Backing into Him Charged with Felonies

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017
A Minnesota cop who shot at a car filled with young women after they accidentally backed up into his patrol car was charged with two felonies Tuesday.
It was a fender bender, but Minneapolis police officer Efrem Hamilton said he was in fear for his life when he jumped out his car and fired a single shot within three seconds.
The bullet struck the side of the car, not striking any of the six women inside, who had nothing to do with the nightclub fight he was responding to in November.
In fact, the women were following the orders of another police officer

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

The criminal trial for a Texas cop who searched the car of a PINAC reporter without a warrant after arresting him for recording in front of a police department begins today.
Galveston Police Sergeant Archie Chapman probably did not realize his unconstitutional actions were being recorded by a dash cam inside Phillip Turner’s car in November 2015, even as Turner sat inside a jail cell.

Matthew “Bo” Williams was a West Virginia cop who decided to run for Roane County Sheriff last year, winning the election in November before he was sworn into office on Sunday.
He was arrested Tuesday for stealing methamphetamine from an evidence locker at his previous job.
Police and prosecutors say he had been addicted to methamphetamine for more than a year, something he admitted to them in November.
But something he never disclosed during his campaign.

Massachusetts Cop Married to Police Chief Rapes Inmate in Closet

Monday, November 28th, 2016
What happens in the closet stays in the closet, right?
At least that’s what a Massachusetts cop was hoping for when he forced a drunk, naked inmate into a closet and performed oral sex on him before raping him on Halloween night.
Salem police officer Brian Butler, 56, said he simply “gave into temptation.” And insists the sex act between him and the 28-year-old man was consensual.
Considering he is married to the department’s police chief, he should be protected, right?
Except there’s video.
Police say a surveillance video confirms the victim’s allegations against Butler, which led to his arrest by Massachusetts State Police on

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016
Former Ohio Police Officer Ray Tensing is now a free man after shooting and killing Sam DuBose, a unarmed black man in July 2015.
At least for now.
Tensing, 26, was an officer at The University of Cincinnati when he was charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter based on evidence from his body camera.
But a judge ordered a mistrial Saturday after a Hamilton County Common Pleas Court jury remained deadlocked with eight jurors voting to convict him of voluntary manslaughter and four wanting to convict him of murder.
There were 10 white and two black jurors.

But prosecutors did not buy that story.

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Now the Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy is out of a job and will spend nearly a year in jail in addition to paying a $500 fine.
The embattled deputy has resigned from three law enforcement agencies since 2001.
