Law Enforcement: This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

A sticky-fingered North Carolina deputy gets busted, so does a Florida sheriff's evidence tech, and a home-invading, drug dealer-robbing Philly cop gets sent away for a long, long time. Let's get to it:

In Whiteville, North Carolina, a local police officer was arrested Monday on drug trafficking charges. Gregory Campbell, 40, is accused of breaking into Fair Bluff Discount Drugs and stealing prescription opiates. He is charged with burglary, larceny of opium-based prescription medications, three counts of drug trafficking, and possession with intent to distribute the drugs. He was a Tabor City police officer from May until September, when he resigned to join the Fair Bluff Police Department. He was fired from that gig after being arrested Monday.

In St. Augustine, Florida, a St. Johns County Sheriff's Office evidence tech was fired and arrested Wednesday for stealing drugs. Paul Robinson, 38, went down after a departmental supervisor began investigating his paperwork and was told he was taking home pain relievers for his own use. He is charged with grand theft and official misconduct.

In Philadelphia, a former Philadelphia police officer was sentenced Monday to 30 years in federal prison for an attempted home-invasion robbery in Pottstown and the robbery of a major Philadelphia drug dealer. Former officer Malik Snell, 37, was convicted in June of robbery, attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and using and carrying a firearm during the commission of a crime.

corrupt cops

this is happening all over our states.the reason why we dont hear more of it is because weve got even more corrupt people hiding it.some of our worst people are those in office.oh-its ok for them or their family to do things.they get away with it.but let someone that isnt related or isnt friends with them do something against the law.i see it all the time here in my town.i say legalize marijuana.our country will be out of debt for sure.the herbal natural plant is alot safer to humans than harder drugs or alcohol or tobacco.marijuana has never killed or contributed to anyones death as it has with harder drugs,alcohol and tobacco.those are the things that you should worry about and make illegal."we the people" should be able to choose what we want to partake in.marijuana also has healing properties and other medical reasons for using it.thats why medical marijuana is legal in 13 states and counting.
