Law Enforcement: This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

Another week's worth of law enforcement officers done in by the temptations created by drug prohibition, including a sheriff headed for prison for turning a blind eye, a prosecutor whose coke habit got him in trouble, a greedy Boston cop, and a pair of pill-peddling policemen. Let's get to it:

In Richmond, Virginia, former Henry County Sheriff Frank Cassell was sentenced to eight months in federal prison Tuesday for covering up widespread corruption in his rural department. Twelve Henry County sheriff's deputies were among 20 people indicted by a federal grand jury on charges they resold seized drugs, including ketamine, steroids, cocaine and marijuana, as well as guns, and engaged in money laundering. Cassell was not accused of participating in the corrupt activities, but of covering up for his deputies. He pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents investigating the case. Seventeen of the 20 arrested have now pleaded guilty, two are in diversion programs, and one faces trial next month.

In Council Bluffs, Iowa, a former Pottawattamie County prosecutor has been convicted of stealing drugs from the evidence room. After cocaine went missing, former Assistant DA Jeff TeKippe argued that he had lawfully flushed it down a toilet, but prosecutors presented evidence of cocaine residues found at TeKippe's house. Jurors convicted him on nine counts of theft, two counts of misconduct in office, and one count of cocaine possession. He faces 10 years or more in prison when he is sentenced October 24.

In Boston, a former Boston police officer pleaded guilty Monday to charges he hired himself out as protection for drug dealers. Former Officer Carlos Pizarro is one of three Boston cops caught in an FBI sting where agents posed as drug traffickers making cocaine shipments to Massachusetts. The feds had him celebrating a supposed successful run on videotape. He pleaded to two counts, including conspiracy to possess cocaine with the intent to distribute, and faces up to 24 years in federal prison. Officers Robert Pulido and Nelson Carraquillo, who were arrested along with Pizarro, face trials in November.

In Cleveland, Ohio, a former Parma police officer was sentenced September 5 to three years in prison for peddling prescription drugs. Donald McNea, Jr., 54, was arrested in December 2005 by state and federal agents after repeatedly selling Oxycontin and other drugs to an informant and a federal agent. He had been at it since at least 2003, before he retired on disability with a $63,000 a year pension. McNea and his lawyers blamed his drug dealing on a mind fogged by addiction caused by the physical and psychological pain he suffered fighting crime, but his former colleagues painted a picture of a cop with a long history of disciplinary problems. In addition to three years in prison, McNea must pay $27,000 in fines and repay the city $2,000 he got from undercover agents in return for drugs.

In Clarksville, Tennessee, a Clarksville police officer already on paid leave as he faces drug peddling charges is in trouble again. Officer Franklin Mikel was charged in April with three felony drug counts after Indiana State Police arrested him April 4 after he allegedly sold 30 morphine tablets to an informant. Mikel was arrested again Monday morning for driving while intoxicated, public intoxication, and two counts of invasion of privacy after he violated a restraining order taken out against him by his estranged wife. Prosecutors may now ask that his cash bond be revoked pending trial later this year on the drug charges.

This is going to blow your socks off. A story of police corruption, tied to escort agencies and encompassing three Kentucky counties. Even a murder of an escort agency owner when she threatens to turn them in. It goes on and on. You wouldn't believe the lengths and the things they have done to people to keep this under wraps. More details and the rest of the story soon.

Jenny Smith

Jenny anyone that knows you knows that your words mean nothing.You are a drug addict a whore and a people user.any so called woman that wood use poor people like Red Bolinger just to get his hard earned.You are TRASH.and if you are so upset with a little town like lakecity then you need to get the hell out.While your at it hell why dont you just leave the state of Tennessee.I am sure your kind of trash wont be missed .

u go girl

i completely agree this town should be turned over to the county, cause it
sure needs help. Lake City Police Dept is a joke. Their is suppose to be a law in this country about dad and moms taking children and not returning them at the end of their scheduled visitation. I think something should be done about these cops that have children and one or the other is a drug addict.

LAKE CITY POLICE

YOU TWO NEED TO LEAVE LAKECITY FOR REAL. MAYBE YOU NEED TO BE CUSSED. JUST DONT COME BACK,AND KEEP YOUR BASTARD SON AWAY TOO.

Lake City Police

I Love Lake City Police

Matter of fact I Love Lake City

I Love Mitch Wade

I Love Shelton I Love Greg Woods I Love Johnston I Love Shetterly

WE love you to Mike Nations also big David Campbell

We also are praying for Buck Wilson

Don't listen to everything you hear consider the sources where it comes from!!
I will be raising my children in this little town and I Promise they won't be on drugs

With Love from Chris&Christopher

What?

i would like to know what are these people talking about. i mean we should really be concerned about John Cena's injury.oh yeah i posted the last comment with my friend and i would like to say for the record that i did not have any sexual relations with that man. i may have put the apparatus to my lips but i didn't inhale. but back to main topic, lake city is a good place to live. i have been pleased with the way things are run like the new steam spa. i mean people see to get mad at the way things are run but you just can't give a guy the death penalty for showing up with his son 3 hours after visitation. this town is a great place to live. people may get mad at this town for their misfortune but they seem to forget why they have that bad luck. and i also think that if you think that this town owes you something then you moving is the first step to cleaning up this town and cleaning yourself. i also want to say that if you think this town is a joke then you need to get out because obviously you are not satisfied with the way it is run and if you don't like then meet me at the carwash. (it's going down). and for the record if you wanna get online and call people drug addicts then that calls for slander. i also believe that you shouldn't call people drug addicts whenever you might be one yourself. listen i don't like the drug addicts in this town either but you can't blame the cops for their problems and if you wanna blame them then tell your friends to quit making their job hell.i would also like to extend my thanks and gratitude to mike nations for straightening this town up and riddening it of evil. we should also pray for john cena. (he hurt his shoulder).
sincerely,
Christopher

Need advise about a fake cop

Hi. I am all too familiar with the way small towns and rural counties are run. I hesitate to say my county but I am in Tennessee. We have a police chief who was sent to the police academy 17 yrs ago to be certified. However, information came to light that he and the sheriff who sent him to the academy (his daddy, go figure, geeez) that both the sheriff and his son lied on the application. Now does this mean that since this dude was slick enough to cover up his scam for 17 yrs that he is somehow "grand-fathered" in? If so, can I practice law because I have filed a few pro se lawsuits? Any input would be welcome. I am working with an online newspaper who says they will expose this imposter of a cop but I have to do all the leg work. Contact me at [email protected]

police corruption in ohio

I am not going to post my name for fear of retaliation from the Van Wert police department,because the low lives that dont have the "right "last name have to fear them.I will say that I felt more violated and exploited by them than I did by the man that stalked me,broke into my home several times,in which all were reported.In 1997-1998 I had no one to turn to.I was basicly a prisoner in an apartment I rented.The man next door to me stole my identification birth records and credit cards along with my two sons birth certificates and threw all of these things into a fire in the basement of the apartment house,and in my apartment every cord to any appliance was cut with a pair of my own scissors all these things were done by a psycho next door,that wanted to be more than friends.When Id report these things the police would tell me to leave my home,instead of arresting the one who did the act and he was right next door!!!!So they are there to protect and serve those in need I wasnt a welfare mom,I pay taxe$ I havent had any faith in the police or any part of the judicial system since.I moved out of that place when i saved enuogh money,and the psycho still foound me .HE had theatend my life,and I again reported it they spoke to him at his place of emploment which was the at van wert newspaper .The next night when I returned home from work,I had a friend meet me at my home and we were waiting on another friend to get off of work and go out for awhile.March 28th at around mid night I heard a knock at the door thought it was my friend I was knocked to the floor and at this time the psycho was tearing up and trashing my home I was screaming get out! get out. Next thing I know I am in an ambulance with blood all over me.Several people called 911 that night and he was finally arrested.BUT its not over...He only get 6 months for an assult and he gets to walk to work everyday and I missed 2 weeks at my job ,and then I got hounded by the hospital to pay the bill i sued him in small claims for 1000.00 never saw a dime,WHAT KIND OF JUSTICE IS THAT FOR A SINGLE MOM ,all I can say that thats the kind of thing that makes people say Screw authority you werent there for me ...and by the way I am considered white BUT I have native american bloodline,I say this because its not always about race ...It has alot to do with M O N E Y $$$$$

Becky is a whore!!! She lets her mother keep those poor kids when they are scared to stay there....what does that tell you? Any mother who would allow their kids to stay somewhere the child is terrified to be, ain't worth the air she breaths. All she does is lay drunk at her apt. while them kids are being molested. Clean up your own home becky before you start messing up someone else's.

Defamation of character

Each of you better be really careful about what you post here. LE officers are sick and tired of being falsely accused of crimes and having their names and reputations defamed by idiots who can't stand authority figures. Officers are now becoming reminded that they have civil rights and are ready to start pursuing legal action against those of you who continually defame them so before you post something here, you better be sure you have your facts, have them documented and witnessed the incidents yourself or you will find yourselves paying for the damage you do to these men and women who risk their lives to protect you. If I were them, I would not respond to your 911 calls because all you cop haters are going to do after the fact is talk badly about them, especially if you didn't get your way. One L.A. officer has already successfully sued some chick who thought she could slander him and get away with it. I wonder how she liked paying out $5000 for lying and shooting off her mouth. Better make sure you have proof of your allegations because you are not as anonymous as you think on the internet and the allegations being made on this site and other like it are being researched for truth, so when these incidents are found to be untrue, we'll be looking for ya' to prove your story. When you can't, we'll be passing the info on to the officer(s) you've slandered. TTFN

Where's the missing information?

Where are the "This Weeks Stories about Cops Who Were Beaten, Killed and who's Civil RIghts were tossed out the Window" stories? Why don't you create some balance if you really want to be effective. But that isn't your goal here is it. Your goal is to incite citizens against law enforcement because you yourself have issues with authority. If you created balance by reporting the millions of good things officers around this nation do each year, I would have some respect for you but since all you do is defame law enforcement and try to justify illegal behavior within your community, I haven't got one ounce of respect or concern for you and your biased website. But we'll be reading and watching for accuracy in what you post and what each of your posters write here. And when there is defamation, we'll be on it. After all, isn't one of the things you are so concerned with civil rights. Guess what, the men and women who put on the uniform each day have them too and it is our mission to see that their rights are honored and protected from sites like this. TTFN

Cop corruption Sevier Co TN, shooting minors and covering it up!

My 15 year old daughter was shot in the head this and leg with a shot gun this past December by a crazed neighbor, whom, along with his family members, that also live in close proximity to my property, have been engaging in reckless conduct with weapons over the last year and a half. Two other minors present were also physically endangered when my daughter was shot, as they were only in feet of my daughter. No charges have been formulated for their endangerment. . On the day of the shooting, we reported to police when they responded that we found this incident to be intentional. Police immediately refused to acknowledge this, which was the initial red flag, and there have been many oddities since. Shooter was not arrested for a full 24 hours as the detective investigating this incident is friendly and acquainted with the shooters son. Defendant did not go to jail. Simply was taken to sheriffs office and processed. Defendant has been grossly undercharged. Defendants son is a county employee with the fire department, in addition to his other job. Political position here, granted to him, most likely for doing "someone a favor."

Local newspaper would not print this story. Odd indeed.

A full 10 days following the incident, the sheriff's detective took my daughters statement. At that time, he asked me to sign permissively for her to do so (give the statement) I signed a paper stating her name, her date of birth, and a sentence that indicated this to be her taped statement in relation to case # so and so. Detective then asked me to sign the opposite side of the paper, which was a waiver of rights.After reading this, I told him I refused to sign that, as my daughter was indeed the victim and not the perpetrator or criminal. He stammered and apologized. He did this in front of me as well as my minor daughter, and my adult daughter, which was also present, being she was to give her statement following the victim. Also very odd. When does an officer ask the victim to waive their rights, and what repercussions would have occurred following that, if I had?

I have been to the sheriff's office numerous times to obtain a complete copy of this form, and sheriff's office has denied me. I have solid proof of this denial and other strange behavior. Detective will not return my calls. Odd too.

I have also met with the District Attorney, who handles three counties here (Sevier, Grainger, and Cocke county), and asked him to amend the charges and formulate additional charges for the other two kids involved. DA talks in circles like a politician. I had asked the assistant DA to amend the charges before speaking with the DA. Man talks in circles too.

In the interim, defendant and defendants family continue to terrorize my children who are now afraid to go outside in their own yard and play or jump on their trampoline. Defendant and defendants family have shown no obvious remorse and continue to trespass on my land with their four wheeler with their weapons fully exposed, which I deem as intimidation and harrassment. No relief yet despite the fact I have reported this to the police and to the DA on three seperate occassions.

Defendant and/or defendants family will kill, it is simply a matter of time. There is a sheriffs report on file of the defendants son aiming a gun at my adult daughter less than 6 months ago. Undercharge is there to enable the defendant to plea bargain down, and keep his weapons, so we can go through this ordeal again.

Not a good situation. Sevier county TN is the home of Dolly Parton. Small wonder she left this place the day following her high school graduation, and did not return until she owned it! Corrupt then...still corrupt today.

There are many cover ups in this region of eastern TN, as the corruption is rampant throughout the sheriff's office and all other aspects of county government.. There is no anti-nepotism policy in county government here, despite many citizenry that have requested such. Those who are in office here believe they are invincible.

Many in this county have suffered here due to police corruption. This includes recent unsolved murders, in which the governor of TN has issued a substantial reward. Commendable. However if those cases have been handled or "mishandled" in this way (comparing how my daughters case has been handled ("mishandled"), it is small wonder that killers are running free! Those who are supposed to "protect and serve" have grossly failed.

Daughters case is not over, in fact it has barely begun...but rest assured the rest of the nation will know about this, by the time I am finished!

Doctors indicate the shot gun pellets cannot be removed from her body, which is causative of further problems. There are medical procedures she will never be able to have and she will have to wear a medic alert bracelet all of her days. And this is OK?

Assault and endangerment of children with a deadly weapon is bad, in fact tragic.

Covering it up is worse!

We cannot allow this, as corruption minimizes and negates real human beings. Where are we without our children. If we do this and get away with it, what will be next?

Cop Corruption in Sevier County TN, shooting minors cont.....

This is a continuation of story in Sevier County TN above. The saga is sordid and ongoing. Apparently the DA and cops have engaged in illegal and deceptive practices and lied to the grand jury, stating that no child was shot. Thus, no true bill.

Far from over!

pursecuted by one dirty cop in marion iowa

in december, 2009 i was pulled over by marion iowa police officer, mark kjermoe. for having snow on my back license plate. i was given a ticket for this, also i found to have no valid driver's license. my truck was illegally searched, the officer said he found a controlled substance in my vehicle, i was charged w/ pssession of controlled substance i was arrested and taken to linn county jail. at my first court appearance i was given a public defender and copy of the minutes of testimony . i told my lawyer that the dash-cam would prove, when a cop wants to impose some kind of revenge on you, just how fast you can be driving along in your vehicle and the next minute you can be shoved into the back of a police car. but more importantly, i did not have snow covering my plate. also that the minutes of testimony was a complete fabrication. 2nd and 3rd pre trial conferences go by, w/ no dash-cam present. the final pre trial conf. was may 20, 2010.the video is there, the county prosecutor admits the video proves what i said it would and is willing to drop the pcs charge, is this a voilation of my civil liberties. march 2008 was my first incident w/ officer mark kjermoe intiially i was pulled over for having no front plate on my little yellow truck, which had fallen off early that winter. i was subsequently charged w/ owi , having bac. of .127. as i was being hand cuffed i asked the officer " if you were behind my vehicle, how did you know i had no plate on the front of my truck?" that question set off all of these events, including the minutes of testimony in this case, the first complete fabriction of the truth as cop wants it to be. i did not received my copy of the minutes of testimony in this case nearly 50 days after being arrested. probably because there would have been indepentent video proving the cop was lying. so after not having all of information in this case ie. dash-cam video and receiving some poor advice from the public defender i took the pled of deferred judgement and all the bs that goes w/ that, in june 2008. feeling railroaded by system and the process , i filed a complaint against offer mark kjermoe at marion pd. this is when i actually got to see the dash-cam video of the night i was arrested. and after their 1 day self investigation, the marion pd found their officer did nothing wrong. but after seeing that video i was convinced i could prove this was lying about his probable cause and that i was actually targeted for arrest that night. so i filed a small claims suit against officer mark kjermoe. the summer of 2008 i was pulled over three different times on a bicycle, riding back and forth to work, once by officer mark kjermoe, once by the other officer that showed up the night of my arrest, and once by some other cop unrelated this first incident. in october 2008 we when to court, my evidence in ths case was simple, based on the tickets i received that night, which the offcier wrote, the minutes of testimony, of which the officer was the author, and the dash-cam video, the only evidence that could not be manipulated by cops. told of a very odd story, logically did not make sense. by this time i am physically sick, i had lost about 20 lbs. lot of sleepless nights, metally stressed all of my personal and professional relationships are suffering. i present my evidence to the court, only to have it ignored by the judge in this case. the unwillingess to see the dash-cam evidence, the allowance of legal council for this cop in small claims courtroom, i should have objected to. after 3 months of deliberating the judge renders a verdict of a non judgement, which was a mistake because this cops story was so far from the truth, that is why i felt like had to sue in the first place. the judge did not rule in either of our favor. in early spring 2009 i was pulled over on a bike by the other offier that showed up the night of arrest march 2008. i was ticketed for not having a light on my bike, i pled not guilty to this because i did have a light on my bike, i when to court, the cop did not bother to show up court, the case was dropped. in june 2009 i was pulled over by officer mark kjermoe while driving my little yellow truck, i was ticketed for having a loud muffler and no license. i pled not guilty, bcause in the middle of rush hour traffic, on the busiest street in marion, if this cop can pull you over, walk up to your vehicle, grab your muffler shake it loose and then write a ticket. the court ruled in his favor. this is a detailed account of the pers<c props="lang:en-US">e</c>cution that i have been living under in marion iowa, i regret buying a house in marion iowa. is this a voilation of my civil liberties
