Law Enforcement: This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

Posted in:

Some New Jersey cops got too friendly with drug dealers, while a Pennsylvania park ranger and a New Mexico jail guard got caught trying to be drug dealers. Let's get to it:

In Newark, New Jersey, six police officers were indicted Tuesday on charges they warned a drug ring about police raids in exchange for drugs. The six were arrested over the last 18 months, but officials only took the case public upon their indictment. Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay McCann said what began as "a social relationship" between the officers and their drug-dealing contemporaries escalated into law breaking and corruption. Those arrested were Pompton Lakes officers Dennis DePrima, 30, Robert J. Palianto, 29, and Michael Megna, 34; West Milford Officer Paul Kleiber, 26; West Paterson Officer Richard Beagin, 26; and Passaic County Sheriff's Officer Gerry Ward, 46. Each was suspended and faces charges including conspiracy to commit official misconduct; conspiracy to possess narcotics; official misconduct; witness tampering and hindering apprehension. The conspiracy unraveled after authorities figured out a suspect in a 2004 drug raid had been tipped off and investigated. The drugs involved included the prescription sleeping pill Ambien, cocaine, Oxycontin, and anabolic steroids.

In Altoona, Pennsylvania, a part-time state park ranger was arrested Saturday on meth dealing and related charges. William Ickes, 61, a ranger at Blue Knob State Park was charged with three counts each of possession and delivery of drugs, as well as additional drug and weapons charges. State officials allege that Ickes sometimes sold drugs in the park while in uniform. During an April raid on Ickes' residence, police seized a pipe bomb and various guns, plus methamphetamine, marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms and drug paraphernalia. Ickes is jailed on a $150,000 bond.

In Albuquerque, a Metropolitan Detention Center guard was arrested Monday night on charges he conspired to smuggle heroin into the jail. Guard Marcus Urias, 19, went down after accepting a pack of tobacco, a gram of heroin, and his $150 fee from a man who turned out to be an undercover agent for the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department. Urias faces charges of drug trafficking, conspiracy to traffic drugs, and conspiracy to bring contraband into a prison. Urias was jailed and fired.

gangs and the way to end them

First off is it is blood in blood out and they know this when joining so the US government should have a bounty on these scum and it should be as the old west dead or alive. They are a burden to all with their coward way in which they kill people. So if you have gang tats it should be open season on you!! Kill, mamie then deport them with their whole family back to their country of birth. If us citizen life in some form of internment camp where escape is a death sentance.

Stellaris makes it clear that

Stellaris makes it clear that she is not like everyone else, from the very beginning. Magnificent music, perfectly conveying the spirit of space exploration, and atmospheric art, dedicated to the landscapes of distant planets, await the player already in the main menu. Immediately recall the "Space Rangers" , the success of which became possible in large part due to the excellent work of artists and composers. Unlike most 4X, offering a pretty fresh gameplay, all based on numbers, graphics and tables, Stellaris does not forget about the mood and stylistics. As usual, a new game begins with choosing your own empire and the galaxy's settings, where the coming battle for domination in the universe will take place. The constructor of civilization is the most detailed: you can choose a race from six main species (there are even reasonable fungi), its appearance, biological features, ethics and, finally, the form of government. Want to make an empire of disgusting reptilian xenophobes, above all else putting military affairs, - without ceremony. Pretty little foxes-monarchists, friendly to other forms of life and worshiping the ancient god - without problems. Here, the preferred type of planets, the main weapon and one of the three possible types of interstellar flights are chosen. Play friv games All these features are needed for a reason - each of them directly affects the gameplay. For example, under the military dictatorship, the possible limit of the fleet has been increased and the cost of maintaining ships has been reduced, and peaceful ethics give a fine to the army's damage, but raises the increase in food. This is not all possible effects - a complete article will leave for a full description of the combinations. The choice of starting features is very important, and it must be done based on the supposed style of the game. Do not forget, however, about roleplaying - as in many strategies from Paradox , he and there will be a place.  When your empire is finally created, the number of future brothers is determined by the mind and the size of the galaxy, it's time to go to the unknown.
