This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

This week, we have a grab bag of crooked law enforcement types, including a big city cop, a probation officer, a prosecutor, and a TSA agent. Let's get to it:

In Durham, North Carolina, a state probation officer was arrested last Thursday on drug trafficking charges. Todd Tronzo, 35, faces four counts of trafficking Schedule I drugs, two counts of possession with the intent to manufacture, sell or deliver Schedule I drugs, two counts of maintaining a vehicle for the sale or possession of controlled substances, and one count each of trafficking by transportation, trafficking by possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was being held in the Vance County jail under a $1 million bond. Police said the arrest was part of an ongoing investigation. Tronzo has been a probation officer with the Division of Community Correction since February 2007 and is now on "unapproved leave."

In North Bergen, New Jersey, a North Bergen municipal prosecutor was arrested last Friday on charges he was involved in a marijuana distribution network that shipped up to a thousand pounds of pot from Northern California. Marcanton Macri, 44, is charged with money laundering and financial facilitation. Macri was caught up in the investigation of two local men who were making regular trips to California's Emerald Triangle area and sending weed back to Jersey from various Northern California post offices. That pair used the services of a local assistant bank manager to help deal with their cash, and Macri is accused of facilitating that relationship. He has been suspended from his prosecutor's gig.

In New Haven, Connecticut, a former Transportation Security Administration officer pleaded guilty Tuesday for his role in a pain pill trafficking ring. Jonathan Best, 30, copped to a single count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute oxycodone. He accepted $2,500 from a trafficker and $1,000 from an undercover law enforcement officer to allow the trafficker to pass through security at Palm Beach International Airport with thousands of pills that he believed were to be sold in Connecticut. But the trafficker was a snitch, and Best went down. He's looking at up to 20 years.

In Houston, a former Houston police sergeant was sentenced last Thursday to 15 years in federal prison for taking a bribe and, while in uniform, using his patrol car to escort a load of cocaine. Leslie Aikens, 47, was convicted of corruption charges last fall after getting burnt in a sting operation by the FBI and the Texas Rangers. Investigators had received a tip that Aikens was dirty, and arranged for him to escort a load of 15 pounds of cocaine coming into Houston.  In return, he was to be paid $2,000. Aikens' defense argued unsuccessfully that he didn't know drugs were involved and he thought he was escorting a load of beer.

I'm sure these are just the

I'm sure these are just the very tiniest tip of a much bigger iceberg.  It is sad that the good cops have to suffer because of the scummy ones that keep doing crap like this.  That is why most of us don't trust cops and other judicial officials.  I have seen first hand how they lie and manipulate, abusing their power with little regard as to whom they hurt. 

THERE ARE TEN COMMANDMENTS

THERE ARE TEN COMMANDMENTS MANY PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK OUR CREATOR WAS A MAN AND THINK MAN MADE RULES WILL STICK  NOTHING STAYS THE SAME EXCEPT THE BIBLE AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AND I CAN TELL YOU I HAVE BEEN THE VICTIM OF THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS..IT DOESNT MATTER IF SOMEONE IS A COP OR A BANK TELLER WE LIVE IN A VERY IGNORANT AND UNEDUCATED WORLD WHERE WOMEN ARE PIT AGAINST EACH OTHER BY JEALOUSY AND MEN END IN PRISONS FOR LIFE OVER A PIECE OF ASS....

ASK YOUR BANKER WHATS ON THE BACK OF A NICKEL AND 8 OUT OF TEN SAY A BUFFALO

HUMAN NATURE IS TO OBTAIN MATERIAL THINGS RATHER THAN THE RICHES OF GREAT FAMILY RELATIONS WITHOUT SOME FORM OF SICK SECRETS

NO ONE PERSON IS SINLESS NOONE IS A JUDGE GOD IS THE JUDGE AND RECENTLY FOR THOSE WHO TRUST IN GOD FOR OUR VENGEANCE WE KNOW THAT WE MUST LOVE THY ENEMY..AT TIMES THE ENEMY CAN PUSH US BEYOND TOLERANCE, YET ULTIMATELY AND WITH  TIME THE TRUTH COMES OUT AND AS THE SAYING GOES

 

THOSE WHO POINT A FINGER USUALLY HAVE FOUR FINGERS POINTING BACK

 

WE ARE RUNNING INTO A CULTURAL DISASTER WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT/LANGUAGE BARRIERS/UNEDERPAID HEROS AND OVERPAID CORRUPT COPS

WHETHER ITS A DIRTY FBI AGENT GONE ROGUE WHO CHOSE THE DRUG CARTELS AND LA STARDOM OVER WHATS RIGHT IN THE WORLD WHO HAS EXTORTED AND KILLED THE CHILDREN OF OVER 20 FAMILIES...............

 

GOD PROMISES.............PATIENCE IS HONOR AND HONOR IS THE FOLLOWING OF INSTRUCTION AND HONORING GODS INSTRUCTION BRINGS ACT OF GODS NOONE CAN EXPLAIN TO JUSTIFY YOU HAVING EVERLASTING LIFE AND RESPECT IN A MANNER YOU WILL BE ACCEPTED INTO HEAVEN WHILE THE OTHERS ON THIS EARTH WILL APPEAR TO BE IN COMMUNISTIC CONTROL YET FALL APART AT THE SEEMS BECAUSE THY HAVE NEVER HONORED GOD THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AND WILLEVER UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF SEED TIME HARVEST     AMEN

They said they were delivering a traffic warrant and shot him in the back 3 times at point blank range within 1.5 minutes of arriving at the house. Christopher did not deserve to die. Please help me help our city and good police officers by signing the petition at the link below - PLEASE. Christopher was only 1 of 18 fatally shot in the last 2 years. 26 have been shot.
