This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

The Tulsa police corruption scandal is the gift that keeps on giving, Jackson, MS, cops head to prison, and more cops want pills too badly for their own good. Let's get to it:

In Boston, a former Watertown police officer was arrested Tuesday on charges he stole a drivers' license and used it to fraudulently obtain oxycodone and other controlled substances. Joseph Deignan, 57, is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance by fraud and fraud in connection with identification documents. Deignan was working as the Watertown Police traffic supervisor when he allegedly stole the drivers' license. He's looking at up to 15 years in federal prison on the identity theft count.

In Stillwater, Minnesota, a now former Washington County deputy was arrested last Wednesday for allegedly stealing drugs deposited in a drug "take-back bin." Ricky Gruber, 43, is charged with drug possession, theft, and misconduct of a public officer. He went down after a sheriff's sergeant noticed the bin had been tampered with, and subsequent video surveillance caught him opening the bin and removing drugs. Gruber admitted he took the drugs for "personal use" and said he had been researching a medical condition present during "sexual intimacy." He said he took the drugs to help with his medical condition.

In Tulsa, Oklahoma, a former Tulsa police officer was held in contempt last Wednesday for giving false testimony related to a Tulsa police corruption case. Jeff Henderson got an additional three months added to his 42-month sentence after being convicted in 2011 on six counts of perjury and two counts of civil rights violations. He had been brought back to Tulsa in June to testify in the case of one of the people railroaded into prison by corrupt Tulsa police, but was found to have lied about who his informant was in that case. Two other Tulsa police officers and a federal agent have been convicted in the Tulsa corruption case, 46 wrongfully convicted people have been released from prison or had their cases modified, and at least 14 lawsuits have been filed against the city and individual police officers.

In Jackson, Mississippi, three former Jackson police officers were sentenced last Friday for accepting bribes from FBI undercover agents posing as drug traffickers. Monyette Quintel Jefferson, 27, and Terence Dale Jenkins, 25, got 10 years each, and Anthony Ricardo Payne, 25, got nine years. All three pleaded guilty last fall. They had accepted bribes ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 to protect what they thought were cocaine shipments.

Great musicians, such as Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Bruckner and Lanner lived and worked here, and their music is still performed at concert halls all around the world. And in the end of the 19th century the citys artists and architects, such as Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Joseph Hoffman, Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos committed cultural revolution which opened a new page in history of experimental and radical arts. http://www.docusys.gr/?p=nfl-nike-football-jerseys-china-nfl-jerseys-for-sale-in-australia.html http://christchapelbandera.org/?p=create-baseball-jersey-t-shirts-Jacksonville-Jaguars-jersey-kids.html Today, there are also regulations on the packaging and sale of many drugs and treatments. For example in advertising, a drug may not bill itself as helping with anything that has not been backed by clinical research and approved by a country’s drug regulation and approval board. Steep fines await any company that even tries to sell a product with an off licence capacity that’s a common practice. バッグ http://fashiontuesday.tripod.com http://www.ailpi.it/test.html http://www.punkoiuk.co.uk/email5.html http://www.educatio.co.at/Presse_Woman,17_8_27.php http://www.ailpi.it/test.html http://www.adrenalina.it/ita/intra/i-feed.asp http://www.equis-costa-rica.info/images/helen.asp http://www.prachanimit.com/ http://www.bcplumbingandheating.co.uk/gallery2718testimonals.html http://www.forschungsinfo.de/iq/suchen/zoom_red.asp mulberry710bagsS

Thank God Tulsa didn't elect Taylor as mayor- it was under her watch that this corruption occurred (not to mention the corruption in the utilities department with payoffs from contractors to public employees). toni
