Law Enforcement: This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

It never ends. Another week of greedy jail guards and thieving policemen. This whole cops robbing drug dealers thing is getting kind of old, too. But let's get to it:

In Carlisle, Indiana, a Wabash Valley Correctional Facility guard was arrested June 4 as he attempted to go to work carrying marijuana, cell phones and chargers, tobacco, and a video game player. Guard James Sheerin, 25, faces drug trafficking and possession charges. When investigators searched his car after his arrest, they also found cocaine, heroin, and more cell phones. Sheerin was last reported being held at the Sullivan County Jail.

In St. Louis, three jail guards were indicted by a federal grand jury June 4 for distributing drugs to inmates at the St. Louis City Justice Center. Correctional officers James Lamont Moore, Peggy O'Neal, and Marilyn Denise Brown are accused of repeatedly delivering what they thought was heroin to prisoners this year. In a sting operation, the hapless trio received purported heroin from an individual outside the Justice Center, along with cash, and secretly delivered the fake smack to an inmate inside. Moore and Brown face one count each of attempted distribution of heroin; O'Neal faces two counts. Each count carries a maximum 20-year sentence upon conviction.

In Philadelphia, a former Philadelphia police officer was convicted Monday of using his police badge and gun to rob drug dealers. Former officer Malik Snell was found guilty of conspiracy, attempted robbery, and a weapons charge for an attempted home invasion robbery in Pottstown. He was also convicted in another incident in which he ripped-off $40,000 from a South Philly drug kingpin during a bogus traffic stop. Snell had endured two earlier trials than ended in mistrials, but the third time was the charm. He faces up to 17 1/2 years when sentenced on September 9.

In Laredo, Texas, a former Laredo airport police officer was sentenced last Friday to 20 months in federal prison on cocaine distribution charges. Former airport cop Vidal Gerardo Sepulveda went down in an FBI sting after selling $700 worth of cocaine while in uniform.

In Benton Harbor, Michigan, a former Benton Harbor narcotics officer was sentenced Wednesday to 37 months in prison and four years probation for staging phony drug raids where he stole drugs. Former officer Andrew Collins, 26, went down after an FBI investigation found crack cocaine and other drugs in his locker. He pleaded guilty to intent to distribute more than five grams of cocaine.

Abuse continues in UK

Next thing I read is about UK cops waterboarding pot growers for information (from the Raw Story web page 6/10/09). Now the question is; is that torture? "Naw, they're pot growers so it's okay!" So now "we" are worse than terrorist!

WTG Bush! You just gave the okay to torture in the so called "free world." Sick.

Whut It Iz...

If you can't trust the police, who can you trust? Just rember,"The Policeman IS your friend...."

Try using paragraphs, capitalization, etc.

Patricia,

It seems like you have something worth saying, but I just couldn't stand to read through to the end. Please take this as constructive criticism -- format your post using correct grammar. Otherwise, people either won't read your post or just think that you are crazy.

David P. Folmar Jr

I just want to say everthing Patricia Brady said is right. United States what do you have to say about that. How can you put somebody in prison for breaking the law and one of your finest broke the law and nothing is being done about it. That is just like if I had license and left them at home and got pulled over by the police you all will charge me with driving without a license but nothing happens to him. Where is the justice.

DAVID FOLMAR

David folmar convicted my son in federal court by david folmar not been legally to prosecute our so.ns and daughters they need to be set free. because justice was not served lthey violated there rights and who ever hired them need to be fired and prosecuted to. they need to pay them for pain and suffering,and the families for putting them through this. because it is not right to take our sons and daughters from us .and it is not legal for them to do this. and everyone needs to be in court on that date to see what is going to happen with daivd folmar.

Folmar

WOW!!! You must be really proud. You have not one BUT TWO sons who are dope-heads and/or drug dealers. It's enough to make a grown Mom proud, ain't it??

David P Folmar Jr

I replied to Patricia's comments early this morning but dont see it now ...??? Patricia call me later ok ? I agree with you - Thank You for making comment to begin with & hope we can find out something ...It's just not right about Folmar ...

Anyone prosecuted by David P

Anyone prosecuted by David P Folmar from Nov 14 2003 - 2009 needs to contact a lawyer and see about filing a 2250 - Lot of paper work involved but may well be worth your efforts -

Davd P. Folmar Jr

Thank you AnonymousMomma for that info

David P Folmar Jr ***

David P Folmar Jr *** 2255 rather - sorry -

Thank you everyboby. I just

Thank you everyboby. I just received a call from my brother who was proscecuted by Folmar. After, the holidays I plan on contacting a lawyer and fined out more about the 2255 paper. I will pray that all of our loved ones will come home safe and SOON!!

BS

Our law enforcement is the reason why there even IS a drug war. Legalize weed and the problem goes away. Users will use the safe and now legal alternative, and hard dealers wont be able to sell their hard shit since the business will dissipate. Just look at Denmark, Jamaica, all the places where it is legal, you will see that there IS no drug war. It's dumb fuck cops that make up the entire war. Ive been a thug my whole life and never once fired a shot at a cop, yet there is a drug war? The drug war is cops against cops. The rest is kids tryin to make enough money to live.

Sadly marijuana is not legal

Sadly marijuana is not legal in those places. And they do have drug wars, though not so spectacular and horrific as what is going on in Mexico.

Marijuana legalization would go a very long way to stopping the violence that is associated with prohibition. But there is always going to be a certain amount of demand for harder drugs, so really ending the drug wars still requires ending prohibition of those drugs too.

Folmar

I have a loved on that was convicted by David Folmar. I don't know much about the system, so I am here to get some advice about what steps should be taken. He already has the 2255 paperwork, but he haven't heard anything from his court appointed attorney. Should we be looking for another attorney? Please help me I need answers....
