This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

Another jail guard goes down, a probation officer may need probation himself, and a Florida sheriff's officer was looking up information he wasn't supposed to. Let's get to it:

In Jacksonville, Florida, a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office patrol officer was arrested last Thursday as part of a federal drug roundup that netted 13 people. Officer Michael Rounsville, 46, is charged with unauthorized use of the National Crime Information Center database. He allegedly used it to check an undercover agent's criminal history without authorization. Others in the case face drug trafficking and money laundering charges.

In Charlotte, North Carolina, a Mecklenburg County probation officer was arrested last Friday on heroin and pain pill charges. Justin Shame McGlamery is accused of buying heroin four times in the past two weeks and selling hydrocodone and oxycodone. At last report, he was still trying to make a $125,000 bail bond.

In Tecumseh, Nebraska, a Nebraska prison guard was arrested last Saturday for allegedly offering to sneak marijuana in to a prisoner last year. Guard Michael Splittgerber, 21, went down after an inmate ratted him out. When authorities searched him on the job, they found a joint inside a state-issued plastic glove on him. At last report, he was in jail and trying to make bail.

Police Corruption

A private investigator friend of mine has told me that of all professions in the USA, the occupation of law enforcement is in the top 5% of "occupations inundated by corruption."  What a terrible record!  Our record in America is about on a par with the Gestapo, the Cossacks, Roman Centurions and soldiers, the German Stasi, the KGB, the Mexican Federales, and many other banana republic nations.  It is time to weed them out, before America ends up being a nation of pitched battles in the streets.  Wait......  It is already getting that way.
