"Preview: Dilemmas of Democracy
Race & Police Brutality in the USA - 2012!"



Runtime: 01:34:30 (Link to Movie)

Description: In the United States, race and police brutality continue to be closely linked, and the phenomenon has sparked a string of race riots and general uprisings over the years. During the Vietnam War, anti-war demonstrations were sometimes quelled through the use of billy-clubs and CS gas, commonly known as tear gas. The most notorious of these assaults took place during the August 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The actions of the police were later described as a "police riot" in the Walker Report to the U.S. National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence (See Documentary). One recent and notable uprising was caused by the arrest and beating of Rodney King on March 3, 1991 by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department. The police officers' brutality had been videotaped by a bystander and widely broadcast (around the world) afterwards. When the four law enforcement officers charged with assault and other charges were acquitted, the 1992 Los Angeles Riots broke out (See Documentary). Copyright © 2013 Streat Beatz™.

"Dream Act" Meth!

October 24, 2012

CHICAGO,Ill. (WCJB) -- Naperville police are investigating what is described as DuPage County's largest meth bust, and authorities warn it's a growing problem. Edgardo Rodriguez-Sanchez, 20, and Jesus Rubio, 25, are behind bars after police say they were found with 19 pounds of methamphetamine in bags. Bond was set at $1 million for each man. The two men, who live in Des Moines, Iowa, were arrested Tuesday near Route 59 and North Aurora Road following a routine traffic stop by Naperville police. The police say the suspects tried to hide the drugs under a pile of shingles. A trained police dog sniffed out the meth, according to authorities.


"I'm fairly confident that they were headed for surrogates of the cartel that are here working in the city," said Jack Riley, Special-Agent-In-Charge, DEA. Riley says in recent weeks similar large meth busts have been happening with more frequency. "Alongside heroin, I've often said this: if I can think of anything that is likened to a weapon of mass destruction on a family, on a community, on social services, it's methamphetamine," he said.

Meth has long been a problem in rural communities where mom-and-pop meth labs have thrived in remote areas. But Riley says what's now invading Chicago is being produced and delivered by powerful Mexican drug cartels, which have been partnering with Chicago street gangs to sell large quantities of heroin. "Now the cartels, with their hubbing of much of their business out of the Chicago area, they're now taking an opportunity to try to get a new product on the streets," said Riley.

Illinois State Police says seizures of meth on highways has increased five-fold in recent months. "It can be buses. They'll bring it in on rail. They'll bring it in on rental cars. We've seen motor homes," said Master Sgt. Frank Spizzirri, Illinois State Police. "These organizations, in my opinion, are probably the most well-organized, well-financed, vicious criminal entities we've ever seen in this country," said Riley.

My Dear Lady!

Published: 9:34 AM EDT, Tue May 29, 2012 - Modified: 10:14 PM PDT, Thur May 31, 2012 Bali, Indonesia (WCJB) -- Lindsay June Sandiford, 55, a British woman, could face the death penalty after being found with an estimated $2.6 million worth of cocaine in her luggage by Indonesian authorities. Sandiford was found to have blocks of cocaine weighing almost 4.8 kilograms in her suitcase after she arrived on the island of Bali on a Thai Airways flight earlier this month, government officials said. Sandiford, described by British media reports as a housewife, did not speak as she was paraded at a press conference Monday wearing a prison-issue orange t-shirt.
Under Indonesia's extremely strict drugs laws, Sandiford could face execution, according to the head of Bali's Customs and Excise Agency monitoring division, Made Wijaya. "The main reason is because narcotics can massively endanger the young and, thus, whoever is caught with drugs should be severely punished. If three people can consume one gram of cocaine, then this operation has potentially saved up to 14,000 lives," Wijaya told journalists at Monday's press conference. "This is the biggest drug bust this year, and this is the first cocaine smuggled into Bali in the last three years." Three other Britons -- one woman and two men -- and an Indian man are also being questioned, Bali police narcotics chief Mulyadi told reporters. They are accused of being part of an international syndicate, he said. The four were shown to reporters at Bali's police headquarters wearing balaclavas on Monday. The British Foreign Office said it is "aware" of the arrests and is "ready to provide consular assistance." Mulyadi -- who like many Indonesians uses one name -- revealed Sandiford was detained by customs officials on May 19 in the departure hall at Ngurah Rai International airport in Bali. Officials seized her black suitcase, which contained several packages containing cocaine. He said Sandiford claimed the suitcase was to be delivered to an unknown person as ordered by a British woman identified as RLD. According to Mulyadi, Sandiford then agreed to cooperate with Indonesian authorities and a meeting was set up with RLD on the island two days later. Police were then able to arrest RLD along with her British partner, identified as JAP, another British man known as PB, and an Indian man identified only as NA.

Da' Secret "Escort" Service!

Published On: May 21 2012 07:28:32 PM EDT Updated On: May 21 2012 08:57:06 PM PDT Washington, DC -- Four Secret Service employees have decided to fight their dismissals for engaging in inappropriate conduct in Colombia last month, a development that could unravel what has been a swift and tidy resolution to an embarrassing scandal over agents’ hiring of prostitutes. Several of the implicated agents have told associates that the facts of what happened in Cartagena differ from initial media accounts describing a group outing of a dozen men in search of prostitutes. Instead, the men went to different bars and clubs and met women under a variety of circumstances, in some cases resulting in voluntary trysts that did not involve money. One 29-year-old field agent assigned to the Washington office, who is single and who resigned under the threat of being fired, told investigators in a polygraph examination that he did not think at the time that the two women he brought back to his hotel room were prostitutes. He is among those seeking to overturn their dismissals, according to three people familiar with his case. The agents are arguing that the agency is making them scapegoats for behavior that the Secret Service has long tolerated. According to interviews with multiple former and current employees and people briefed on the inquiry, the Secret Service agents involved brought women to their hotel rooms without hesi­ta­tion. The agency says it was clear that employees should not do anything unbecoming of a Secret Service employee. Current and former agency employees say sexual encounters during official travel had been condoned under an unwritten code that allows what happens on the road to stay there. They also contend that this tolerance is part of the “Secret Circus” — a mocking nickname that some employees use to describe what ensues when large numbers of agents and officers arrive in a city. Shortly after landing in Cartagena at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 11, the 55 or so Secret Service members had down time to explore the Caribbean resort. They were there to provide extra security for Obama’s visit for an international summit but had two days before the commander in chief arrived. In Cartagena, prostitution is legal in designated “tolerance zones.” Secret Service supervisor David Chaney, 48, had spent two decades with the agency and was among the most senior on the plane. He headed out that night to a strip club called the Pley Club, with junior agents in tow, according to two people with knowledge of the events. Chaney has been married for 20 years, but that night he and his colleagues paid the Pley Club a small fee to take at least two of the performers back to the Hotel Caribe, where they and other members of Obama’s advance team were staying, according to the two people familiar with what happened that night. Separately, a pair of married Secret Service agents who worked together on the agency’s tight-knit, elite counter­assault team — Arthur Huntington (pictured left: ex-Secret Service Agent Arthur Huntington with Kelly Scruggs.) and Joe Bongino — headed to the historic old city of Cartagena. They hit the Hard Rock Cafe, which had been recommended in the briefing guide prepared by the State Department, but it was dead. They moved down the street to Tu Candela, a popular bar and disco. In Cartagena, while at Tu Candela that Wednesday night, Huntington asked Dania Suarez, a 24-year-old prostitute, to spend the night with him. She agreed in exchange for a “gift” of $800, she later told a television interviewer. Her girlfriend agreed to join Bongino for no charge, Suarez said. People briefed on the investigation corroborated this version of events. The morning after the carousing, the party ended for all when Huntington refused to pay Suarez and, she said, pushed her out of his room into the seventh-floor hallway, setting off the dispute that would lead to the exposure of the misconduct. What none of the agents realized was the extent to which the Secret Service already had irritated the hotel manager, even before the hallway disturbance. The manager, according to people familiar with the investigation, was infuriated by the noise the agents made at the hotel bar and the inconvenience they caused other guests. Outside the Hotel Caribe, Secret Service officers had repeatedly allowed their bomb-sniffing Belgian Malinois shepherds to defecate on the lone grassy patch along the hotel’s beach front property — directly in front of the hotel manager’s apartment. The manager did not respond to e-mails and phone messages seeking comment. After Colombian police alerted the U.S. Embassy, a Secret Service official dispatched to the hotel to investigate found the manager waiting with a clipboard full of complaints and quick to provide names. Although the service warns agents in training seminars that extramarital affairs could expose them to blackmail, some married agents are widely known to cheat on their wives. The Colombian hooker wasn’t the first lady — or the second. Kelly Scruggs, whom Huntington cruelly blew off after being introduced to her mother, said she has no sympathy for the philandering fed who broke her heart in 2008. “I don’t feel sorry for (him). I think he’s a total creep now,” the blond-haired, blue-eyed Southern beauty told media sources. “A total jerk.” Scruggs was quickly joined by a third: Holly Snow, 41, who met the horny Huntington on the day of Jenna Bush’s May 2008 wedding, around the time of his break-up with Scruggs. Associates said Huntington, 41, was one who acted differently on many of his trips than he did at home. While growing up in upstate New York, Huntington went to North Star Christian Academy and attended Roberts Wesleyan College to study criminal justice. He started out working as a security guard at Greater Rochester International Airport, relatives said, until he landed a job as a cop near Tampa, Fla. Huntington’s extramarital conquests began during the George W. Bush administration, when he did the Texas two-step with a pair of Lone Star lovelies. While one knew the amorous agent was married, the other says she was seduced with endless lies by the man who lost his job for stiffing a Cartagena prostitute last month. Huntington picked up both in the same Waco, Texas, club about a year apart. And Snow learned during their affair that he kept women “in all 50 states.” He was at least chasing them on three continents: In addition to North and South America, the media reported that the agent was on the prowl during President Obama’s trip to Ireland last year. All the while, his loyal wife, Jolie, and their two sons were waiting at their suburban Maryland home. Huntington — who would soon his job after giving the Colombian (escort) prostitute (pictured left) just $28 for an $800 night of carnal delights — actually told Scruggs that he was divorced. Huntington even referred to his “ex-wife” Jolie by name during their heart-to-hearts. One of the implicated men has told associates that a senior security supervisor had advised agents to follow loose guidelines when spending time with women they met on the road: One-night stands were permitted, this supervisor explained, as long as the relationships were cut off when the agents left the country. Three of those implicated, including Bongino, were cleared of serious misconduct charges. In addition to the four who are challenging their dismissals, at least four others were forced out: Chaney, who immediately took early retirement; Huntington, who was pushed to resign; and two others, who were also dismissed. The fate of one agent is unknown. One of those cleared is a single agent who speaks Spanish, and who picked up a local woman at the same bar and took her back to his hotel independent of his colleagues, according to two people briefed on the incident. He — along with Bongino and another colleague — kept their jobs after proving that they did not pay for sex. But both the Spanish-speaking agent and Bongino have been shifted off the elite counter­-assault team, those briefed on the incident said. The 29-year-old agent has told investigators a similar story: that he took two women to his room without realizing they were prostitutes. He maintained, under a polygraph exam, that he told the women to leave when they asked for money for sex, according to associates familiar with his account. He has withdrawn his resignation. Only one agent was completely cleared, after proving that someone else had improperly used his name to register a female guest. The scandal has badly damaged the Secret Service’s reputation, and the fallout has spread to other federal agencies. A dozen members of the military also are accused of hiring prostitutes on the trip, and the Drug Enforcement Administration is looking into allegations, made by a Secret Service agent during the investigation, that DEA members had previously brought prostitutes to their apartments in Cartagena. The confirming allegations by the four agents is a charge that Director Mark Sullivan may have to address when he appears before a Senate committee Wednesday. He has not spoken in public about the controversy, but according to his prepared testimony, he plans to tell Congress that there was no breach of operational security.

Domestic Service!

Published On: May 21, 2010 - Updated On: May 23 2012 03:37:06 PM PDT Lake Ronkonkoma, NY -- The United States Secret Service came to Gatelot Avenue Elementary School Thursday afternoon. No, President Barack Obama was not in attendance, but one of his presidential limousines was. As part of Operation Safe Kids, the Secret Service hosts programs nationwide to fingerprint and photograph children in case they go missing, according to Mike Seremetis, a resident agent in charge with the SS. Students were treated to an assembly where Special Agents Joe Bongino (pictured left) and Steve Chaklos spoke about their daily responsibilities, which include more than just the few who men and women tasked with being on presidential detail. The parent of a student notified the school about the program after reading about it in a newspaper. Gatelot applied and everything came together. "The benefit is multifaceted," said Leslie Arent, the school's social worker. "It makes kids more aware of safety. It also makes them understand technology and how it works for their safety." "They did an amazing job and worked well with the children," said Gatelot principal Denise Kleinman. "The benefits are insurmountable. God for bid a child gets lost or stolen or kidnapped, it's so much easier to try and find them." Seremetis said they've fingerprinted about 80,000 children in the course of 500 events.

Da' DEA in Cartagena!

Published On: May 21 2012 07:28:32 PM EDT Updated On: May 21 2012 08:57:06 PM PDT
"Not good! It's disturbing that we may be uncovering a troubling culture that spans more than one law enforcement agency. In addition to the Secret Service scandal, we now learn that at least two DEA agents apparently entertained female foreign national masseuses in the Cartagena apartment of one of the agents. The evidence uncovered thus far indicates that this likely was not just a one-time incident." -- Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, which on Wednesday will hear the first testimony from Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WCJB) - Three Drug Enforcement Administration agents are under investigation for allegedly hiring prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, a congressional source confirms to media sources. According to this source, House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King, R-New York, and committee investigators have been "aware of this for some time." News of the investigation comes on the heels of a prostitution scandal involving U.S. military and Secret Service agents who were detailed to Colombia in April in advance of President Barack Obama's trip to the Summit of the Americas. Several Secret Service members have been dismissed as a result of investigations. Media sources spoke with three senators -- one of whom asked not to be identified -- who confirmed the investigation concerning the DEA agents. Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the Judiciary Committee chairman, said senators found out about the matter a week ago but were asked to keep it quiet until the agents were removed from Colombia. DEA spokesman Rusty Payne said the matter has been turned over to the Justice Department inspector general. "The Drug Enforcement Administration was provided information from the Secret Service unrelated to the Cartagena hotel Secret Service incident, which DEA immediately followed up on, making DEA employees available to be interviewed by the Department of Justice's Office of Inspector General. DEA takes allegations of misconduct very seriously and will take appropriate personnel action, if warranted, upon the conclusion of the OIG investigation," Payne said. "Not good," said Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, which on Wednesday will hear the first testimony from Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan. Collins released a statement later Monday, saying, "It's disturbing that we may be uncovering a troubling culture that spans more than one law enforcement agency. "In addition to the Secret Service scandal, we now learn that at least two DEA agents apparently entertained female foreign national masseuses in the Cartagena apartment of one of the agents. The evidence uncovered thus far indicates that this likely was not just a one-time incident," Collins added in her statement. In addition, Collins and one other senator told media sources that one additional Secret Service agent has come forward in recent days and volunteered to his superiors that he paid a prostitute while in Colombia in advance of President Obama's recent trip there. An aide to Collins said the Secret Service is telling the senator's office that the agent says he thought he was paying for a massage, not for prostitution. Because that agent came forward on his own, he will not lose his job, one of the senators said.

"P.I.C."

Posted: Fri. May 4, 2012 17:54 PDT - Updated: Fri. May 4, 2012 22:28 PDT OAKLAND, CA -- The stardom-seeking private investigator at the center of an East Bay law enforcement scandal pleaded guilty Friday to seven criminal counts in an agreement with federal prosecutors. Christopher Butler, 50, pleaded guilty to charges including extortion, robbery and conspiring to deal drugs during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Oakland. Butler had sought fame - and a reality television deal - by hiring "Mommy P.I.s," attractive women whose job was to lure men into cheating on their wives. But Butler was exposed for using actors to fake some of the stings. He and Norman Wielsch, a former state Department of Justice agent who led an anti-narcotics task force in Contra Costa County, were indicted last year. The two once worked together as Antioch police officers. Butler and Wielsch were accused of crimes including stealing marijuana and methamphetamine from police to sell, embezzling cash and opening a massage parlor in Pleasant Hill that served as a front for prostitution. Wielsch, 51, has pleaded not guilty to similar charges and remains free on bail. In court Butler also admitted to bribing a Contra Costa County sheriff's deputy, Stephen Tanabe, with cocaine and a gun to make drunken-driving arrests of men he was investigating - so-called "dirty DUI" stings. Tanabe, who is no longer a sheriff's deputy, has also pleaded not guilty. Butler also admitted to carrying out a fake arrest of the teenage son of a client who suspected the boy was selling drugs, and setting up 75 to 100 illegal wiretaps as part of his private-investigator business. Butler said he and Wielsch had stolen methamphetamine from police evidence lockers and sold at least a pound of the drug for $9,800. Butler also admitted to conspiring with Wielsch to establish the Pleasant Hill brothel, and to collecting more than $10,000 from the business that allegedly went to Wielsch in exchange for protection for the operation from law enforcement. Butler's sentencing is set for Sept. 11, and prosecutors would not say what term they would recommend. The drug charge against him carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum of life. Two defendants left In the same courtroom Friday, an associate of Butler's, former San Ramon police officer and vice cop Louis Lombardi, was sentenced to three years in prison by U.S. District Judge Saundra Brown Armstrong. Judge Armstrong, a former Oakland police officer, also ordered Lombardi to pay $7,500 in restitution to the city of San Ramon. As part of his sentence, he must undergo drug treatment while in prison. "It is a sentence that allows everyone to start healing and moving forward," his lawyer said. "Mr. Lombardi has worked very hard since being arrested to right the wrongs he committed." Lombardi had admitted to nine felonies, including stealing $40,000 in cash while on the job and pocketing drugs during searches. Lombardi, 39, worked as Wielsch's second-in-command on the now-disbanded Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team from 2005 to 2009. He was arrested in April 2011, two months after Wielsch and Butler, and pleaded guilty in January. Lombardi admitted that Wielsch had once given him half a pound of marijuana, which he then sold to a confidential informant in Arizona and split the profits with his former boss. In court papers, prosecutors depicted Lombardi as an opportunistic man who used the power of his badge to steal large sums of cash as well as petty items, including a bottle of whiskey and a pair of sunglasses. But in court, prosecutors asked the judge for a lenient sentence, explaining that Lombardi was cooperating with law enforcement and accepted responsibility for his crimes. Lombardi tearfully apologized to his family and to police officers for "destroying" the reputation of law enforcement. "There's nothing I can do to bring that back," he said. "I'm deeply sorry." Lombardi's lawyer said the former officer had begun taking drugs as a form of self-medication after rupturing a back disc during a 2008 arrest. Butler's attorney, said he hoped his client would receive a similarly lenient sentence. He said the private eye has also cooperated with prosecutors, and that much of the case against Wielsch is due to the "candor of Mr. Butler." He said Butler had fallen in love with the spotlight - the "Mommy P.I.s" got him on the Dr. Phil show and brought a write-up in People magazine. "I think good judgment was just overcome by the desire for notoriety," the attorney said. Butler was stoic during Friday's hearing. After he pleaded guilty, he removed his jacket and tie, handed it to his attorney and went with the U.S. marshal taking him into custody.

Federal Thievery!

Posted: 05/04/2012 11:36:34 AM PDT - Updated: 05/04/2012 2:20:35 PM PDT
OAKLAND, CA -- A former San Ramon police officer and co-defendant in a notorious corruption scandal involving a Contra Costa drug task force was sentenced Friday to 36 months in federal prison, and one of the scandal's ringleaders is poised to follow in his footsteps with a guilty plea of his own. Louis Lombardi (pictured below, center) a 39-year-old Discovery Bay resident, pleaded guilty Jan. 26 to stealing methamphetamines, marijuana, $43,000 in cash, jewelry, whiskey, and sunglasses, while executing search warrants as a police officer and as an agent for the Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team. In addition to the 36-month sentence, Lombardi and was ordered to complete a drug-treatment program.
Of the four officers charged in connection with the scandal, Lombardi was the first to take a plea deal. His former vice squad commander, Norman Wielsch, and former private investigator Christopher Butler have given lengthy confessions to prosecutors and are expected to follow suit. On Friday, Butler was in the same Oakland courthouse as Lombardi, and is expected to enter a plea. Funded by the Department of Justice and manned by officers from Contra Costa police agencies, CNET was suspended in February 2011 when Wielsch and Butler were arrested on suspicion of selling stolen drug evidence. A fourth defendant, former Danville Deputy Stephen Tanabe, is also being prosecuted for alleged crimes involving Butler, including a purported scheme to set up men going through divorces for DUI arrests that could be used against them in family law court. Tanabe denies the charges.

Da' FBI & Friends!

Posted: May 22, 2012 12:24 AM PDT - Updated: May 22, 2012 12:24 AM PDT
"Dear Edgar, It has come to my attention that the son of a lifelong personal friend has applied to become a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation..." -- August 1, 1968, U.S. House Speaker John William McCormack writes a personal note to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover on behalf of a constituent (John J. Connolly, Jr.). Connolly, Jr. was appointed to the FBI in October 1968.
Boston, MA -- A judge told FBI agent John J. Connolly, Jr. that he had ‘crossed over to the dark side’. Connolly, Jr. is an ex-FBI agent, who was convicted of racketeering and obstruction of justice convictions stemming from his relationship with James J. "Whitey" Bulger, Steve Flemmi, and the Winter Hill Gang. Connolly was indicted on December 22, 1999 on charges of alerting Bulger and Flemmi to investigations, falsifying FBI reports to cover their crimes, and accepting bribes. In 2000, he was charged with additional racketeering related offenses. He was convicted on the racketeering charges in 2002 and sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. Connolly would later tell reporters that as a boy, his first memory of James "Whitey" Bulger was "Whitey" using his illicit earnings to buy ice cream cones for all the boys that swarmed around him in adoration. Stephen Joseph "The Rifleman" Flemmi (born June 9, 1935) is an Italian-American mobster and close associate of Winter Hill Gang boss James J. "Whitey" Bulger. Beginning in 1965, Flemmi was a top echelon informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Despite delivering a great deal of intelligence about the inner workings of the Patriarca crime family, Flemmi's own criminal activities proved a public relations nightmare for the FBI. For this reason, he was prosecuted under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and sentenced to a long term of incarceration. This scandal was the basis for the book Black Mass and is alluded to in the 2006 crime thriller film ‘The Departed.’ Damon plays the part as a Massachusetts State Trooper detective who plied his (childhood) Mob links with information. Connolly (pictured left) graduated from Boston College and attended law class and then briefly, unhappily, attended Suffolk University Law School for a Bachelor of Law in the same class as John Martorano's brother, James Martorano. (Connolly is the brother-in-law of Arthur Gianelli, who was later indicted with Joe (Joey Y) Yerardi, who oversaw John Martorano's criminal operations when he was a federal fugitive in Florida between 1978 and 1995. In 1989 the DEA was probing the Winter Hill Gang for suspected drug trafficking. Arthur Gianelli and Connolly purchased adjoining property in Lynnfield, Massachusetts from Patriarca crime family extortionist, Rocco Botta. Retired FBI Special Agent Joseph D. Pistone wrote in his book, The Ceremony, "The reign of the Patriarca crime family is ended. A substantial amount of the credit for the demise of that mob family must be given to one man, Special Agent John Conolly." Louis Litif, one of the top bookmakers and Winter Hill Gang mob associates was one of Connolly's handball partners at the Boston Athletic Club.) He later withdrew from Suffolk University and went on to earn a graduate degree in Public Administration from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. Before he became an FBI agent Connolly worked as a teacher at South Boston High School and Dorchester High School. (In 1965, Flemmi was secretly recruited as a confidential informant by FBI Agent H. Paul Rico, giving the agency inside information about Boston's gangland. However, Flemmi allegedly used his informant status to get important members of the rival Charlestown Mob arrested and to protect his allies.) In 1968 he met with H. Paul Rico's FBI partner, Special Agent Dennis Condon, and Boston Police Department Detective Edward Walsh, an old friend of the Connolly family. Both Condon and Walsh would later brag that they had 'recruited' Connolly. Then he stopped by his old neighbor and state representative Billy Bulger (Whitey's brother) to discuss career opportunities in law enforcement. On August 1, 1968 U.S. House Speaker John William McCormack wrote a personal note to J. Edgar Hoover on behalf of a constituent. The letter began, "Dear Edgar, It has come to my attention that the son of a lifelong personal friend has applied to become a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation..." He was appointed to the FBI in October 1968. He began his FBI career in Baltimore field office and then San Francisco field office before he was transferred back to New York City where he helped break up a child pornography ring. During his career in the FBI, Connolly investigated organized crime and over the span of his career received eight commendations from every Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from J. Edgar Hoover through L. Patrick Gray, William Ruckelshaus, Clarence M. Kelley, James B. Adams, William H. Webster, John Otto and William S. Sessions. In 1973 he was the first agent assigned to the FBI office in Boston and maintained an office at One Centre Plaza in Government Center, Boston. Boston FBI Special Agent Robert Fitzpatrick said, "Connolly just became a force unto himself, a vortex in a constantly changing system. He stayed put as new agents in charge came and went. And he could take care of other agents. He became the guy who could get you sports tickets. He could help you get a day off through the secretaries. He made no secret that he could help you get a job after retirement through Billy Bulger [Whitey's brother]. But he wasn't that much of an agent. He couldn't write a report. He was no administrator. He was just this brassy bullshit artist. We enabled him to some extent. No one had the stomach for examining what he was up to. We just never came to grip with that guy." In 1990 after he retired from the FBI, Billy Bulger (Whitey's brother) lobbied with Boston Mayor Ray Flynn to have Connolly appointed Commissioner of the Boston Police Department. Flynn instead appointed Francis Roache. However, upon his honorable retirement from the FBI in 1990, Connolly accepted the position of Director of Security/Public affairs for Boston Edison, from former Boston FBI Special Agent John Kehoe. FBI Supervisor John M. Morris, who would also face charges of corruption, was Connolly's supervisor during much of his time working for the FBI. As an agent Connolly was also one of the primary agents involved in developing the Top Echelon Criminal Informants Program in New England. In 2005, Connolly was indicted on murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges in the 1982 slaying of Arthur Andersen certified public accountant John B. Callahan and the 1981 murder of Roger Wheeler, owner of the World Jai Alai sporting corporation. Connolly stood trial in 2008 in Miami. Throughout a two-month trial in Miami, Florida, a panel of judges heard that Connolly, 68 was on the Mafia payroll, getting money from infamous Mob head James "Whitey" Bulger (pictured left) who ran the Winter Hill gang in Boston in the 1980s. The evidence presented in court demonstrated that as the FBI handler for Bulger and Flemmi, Connolly (who had grown up in the Old Harbor Housing Project with Bulger) had been protecting them from prosecution by feeding Bulger information about possible attempts to catch them, in addition to leaking the names of informants. Callahan was murdered by John Martorano who shot Callahan and left his body in the trunk of his Cadillac in a parking lot at Miami International Airport. Prosecutors alleged that Callahan was killed on the orders of Whitey Bulger and Stephen Flemmi after Connolly told them that the FBI was investigating his ties to the Winter Hill Gang in their ongoing investigation into Wheeler's death. Wheeler had been killed by Martorano in Tulsa, Oklahoma in May 1981. (FBI Civil Trial Lawsuit Photo (Monday, July 20, 2009) -- A federal judge is demanding the families of two women butchered by James “Whitey” Bulger (pictured right, center) and Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi (pictured far left) justify why he shouldn’t toss their lawsuits against the FBI when they waited nearly 20 years to cry foul. The issue is expected to be addressed as the wrongful-death trial of Flemmi’s lovers Debra Davis (pictured right, top) and Deborah Hussey (pictured right, bottom) resumes today. Arguments to U.S. District Court Judge William G. Young supporting the lawsuits include new details suggesting the mob monsters’ lust for revenge was rivaled only by their psychological cruelty. Flemmi is described by his former mistress Marilyn DeSilva as mild mannered and personable. He was a childhood friend and mentor of Richard J. Schneiderhan, who later became a Lieutenant in the Massachusetts State Police. In April 2005, Flemmi was deposed in New York City by a group of lawyers representing the families of his and Bulger's victims, who are currently suing the federal government. Among other things, he testified that he and Bulger had been paying off six FBI agents in the Boston office. Those who could be reached issued denials.) During Connolly's criminal trial, Bulger associates Stephen Flemmi, Kevin Weeks and John Martorano testified for the prosecution detailing Connolly's ties to Bulger and Flemmi. Flemmi testified that Connolly warned them that the FBI wanted to question Callahan in the death of Wheeler, telling them that Callahan "wouldn't hold up" and would probably implicate them. Kevin Weeks, Bulger's right-hand man, testified that Bulger boasted that he had corrupted six FBI agents and more than 20 Boston police officers. At holiday time, Bulger stuffed envelopes with cash, Weeks testified. "He used to say that Christmas was for cops and kids," Weeks said. Also testifying against Connolly was his former FBI boss, John Morris, who admitted that he accepted $7,000 in bribes from Bulger and Flemmi. He stated he began leaking information to them after Connolly delivered a case of wine and an envelope stuffed with $1000 cash from the pair.
(In 2006, Weeks sat down with media sources to talk about his former mentor. Weeks described Bulger as a "disciplined" man who dedicated his waking hours to the pursuit of crime. He didn't enjoy alcohol, drugs, or gambling. According to Weeks, Bulger found enjoyment and "stress relief" in the act of killing: "He stabbed people, he beat people with bats, he shot people, strangled people, run them over with car," Weeks told Bradley. "After he would kill somebody, he'd--it was like a stress relief, you know? He'd be nice and calm for a couple of weeks afterwards, like he just got rid of all his stress.") Testifying for Connolly was former U.S. Attorney and current U.S. District Senior Judge Edward F. Harrington who testified that Connolly was a star agent who was credited with using informants to help destroy the New England Mafia. On November 6, 2008, a jury convicted Connolly of second-degree murder. According to the prosecutors, Connolly faced a possible sentence of 30 years to life in prison. Connolly was due to be sentenced on December 4, 2008 but sentencing was postponed until January while the judge in the case, Circuit Judge Stanford Blake, considered a motion by the defense to dismiss the case. The defense argued that in Florida, the statute of limitations had expired for second-degree murder when Connolly was convicted. On January 15, 2009, Blake sentenced Connolly to 40 years in prison, saying that Connolly "crossed over to the dark side." The judge agreed with the defense's argument involving the statute of limitations, but noted that their motion was past the deadline for such motions. The judge accepted prosecutors' argument that Connolly abused his badge and deserved more than the 30-year minimum. The 40-year state sentence will run consecutively with the 10-year federal sentence, all but assuring that Connolly will die in prison. Connolly insists he had nothing to do with the Callahan murder. With Bulger's capture on June 24, 2011; Connolly's attorney said his client would appeal if Bulger corroborates Connolly's claim of innocence. Connolly was released from federal prison June 28, 2011 and was transferred to Massachusetts state prison to serve the remainder of his sentence for his 2008 second degree murder conviction. Edward J. MacKenzie Jr., a former drug dealer and enforcer for Bulger, predicted that Bulger will disclose new details about FBI corruption and how agents protected him for so long. "Whitey was no fool. He knew he would get caught. I think he'll have more fun pulling all those skeletons out of the closet," MacKenzie said. "I think he'll start talking and he'll start taking people down."

G-Murder!

Posted: 05/16/2012 6:39 PM EDT - Updated: 05/22/2012 2:20 AM PDT
Boston, MA -- The family of one of James “Whitey” Bulger’s alleged victims today asked a federal judge to allow a lawsuit they filed against four FBI agents to proceed in the courts, saying they are continuing their long, frustrating journey to hold the agents for responsible for protecting the notorious gangster. The family of Michael Donahue and the family of Edward “Brian” Halloran had won multi-million-dollar lawsuits against the federal government for the FBI’s role in protecting Bulger during his alleged murderous reign in Boston’s underworld. But an appeals court threw out the case, and on Monday, the US Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal by the Halloran family.
Halloran, 41, a Bulger associate, was getting a ride home from a bar on Boston’s waterfront from Donahue, a 32-year-old Dorchester truck driver, when Bulger and an unidentified associate allegedly opened fire on May 11, 1982, killing them. Bulger allegedly acted because he had been tipped off by a corrupt FBI agent that Halloran had become an FBI informant. Bulger himself was an FBI informant who allegedly used his protected status and relationships with corrupt agents to his advantage. Donahue’s family took a different legal path and argued today before a federal judge in Boston that they should be able to continue their lawsuit against the four agents. But an attorney for the one of the agents, Lawrence Sarhatt, argued that the Donahues could not continue their case after the loss by the Halloran family. “You can’t get a second bite at the apple,” he said. The other agents named in the lawsuit are John J. Connolly Jr., Robert Fitzpatrick, and John M. Morris. US District Court Judge William G. Young took the matter under advisement after a brief hearing. Posted: October 7, 2011 - Updated: October 9, 2011 4:05 PM PDT BOSTON (WCJB) – One of the judges involved in a federal appeals court ruling that denied the families of two of Whitey Bulger’s alleged victims of an $8.5 million award against the government says the FBI, “has gotten away with murder.” (Whitey Bulger, pictured above, right) In a scathing dissent, Judge Juan Tourella wrote that the moral of the ruling seems to be, “that crime does pay, at least for the government.” On Thursday, the US First Circuit Court of Appeals voted 3-3, supporting the earlier decision that the statute of limitations had expired. A majority is needed to grant a hearing for an appeal. The money was supposed to go to the families of Michael Donahue and Brian Halloran. Both men were killed back in 1982. Halloran was the target. Donahue was only there because he offered Halloran a ride home.
Read the full court opinion (.pdf)
After the federal government was found liable in the deaths of the two men, their families were awarded the $8.5 million in 2009. But that was rescinded earlier this year. Under federal law, the statute of limitations under the Federal Tort Claims Act is two years from the date of accrual. Judge Tourrella pointed out the government was covering up their dealings with Bulger as late as 2005. “The government’s claim that the Donahue and Halloran estates filed their claims too late rests on an astonishingly one-sided understanding of what reasonableness requires,” Tourrella wrote. “The government had repeatedly assured them over the years that someone else was responsible. Is it so unreasonable for citizens to rely on what their government was repeatedly asserting as the truth? Can the government be allowed to benefit from its own perfidious conduct in duping its own citizens with stonewalling and outright lies?” Pat Donahue, Michael’s widow called the ruling an injustice. “If there are other avenues I’m interested in going with that. I don’t want the government to get away with murder,” she told media sources. “I feel like if the judges against us really did their homework, there should be no question about giving us a hearing. This is just a hearing. To think our case isn’t important enough, what kind of case would be?” Donahue’s attorney called the Donohue’s story an American tragedy. “The poor fellow gets killed by this own government, and then his own government tells him we know we did it but we’re not going to compensate you for it,” he said. The attorney who represents the McIntryre family also called the ruling outrageous. “The government admitted it was complicit in the murder of these poor people, and the government now says we did it, but we’re not going to pay for it because you should have known about it earlier,” the attorney said. Congressman Stephen Lynch also expressed his opposition to the ruling and even suggested passing a law to change things. “These families deserve justice and the Appeals Court decision is very disappointing,” he said in a statement. “I would be supportive of legislation if the families choose to pursue such a remedy. I am not certain that the House rules would permit a personal relief bill to proceed under these circumstances but this case is compelling and I am willing to make the effort.” The U.S. Attorney’s Office had no comment on the decision.

Da' Secret Service '63!

Posted: May 22, 2012 12:24 AM PDT - Updated: May 22, 2012 12:24 AM PDT After the death of John F. Kennedy, Vice President, Lyndon B. Johnson, was appointed president. He immediately set up a commission to "ascertain, evaluate and report upon the facts relating to the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy." The seven man commission was headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren and included Gerald Ford, Allen W. Dulles, John J. McCloy, Richard B. Russell, John S. Cooper and Thomas H. Boggs. Lyndon B. Johnson also commissioned a report on the assassination from J. Edgar Hoover. Two weeks later the Federal Bureau of Investigation produced a 500 page report claiming that Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin and that there was no evidence of a conspiracy. The report was then passed to the Warren Commission. Rather than conduct its own independent investigation, the commission relied almost entirely on the FBI report. Clint Hill, Roy Kellerman, and William Greer after giving evidence to the Warren Commission (March, 1964) It is believed that J. Edgar Hoover either knew of plans to kill Kennedy and did nothing to stop them, or he helped to organize the assassination. One unnamed author provides information that Hoover and the Federal Bureau of Investigation helped to cover-up the real identity of the people who assassinated John F. Kennedy. Another author claims that members of the Secret Service agents were involved in the killing of Kennedy. This included providing the assassins with a good opportunity to kill Kennedy. The author was highly critical of the behaviour of Secret Service Agents William Greer, Roy Kellerman and Winston G. Lawson during the assassination. The author believes that after the assassination of Kennedy they hijacked the body in order to alter the corpse. One other author writes: "I have discovered at least fifteen indications of Secret Service complicity in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, from the absence of protective military presence to a lack of coverage of open windows, to motorcycles out of position, to Secret Service agents failing to ride on the Presidential limousine, to the vehicles arranged in an improper sequence, to the utilization of an improper motorcade route, to the driver bringing the vehicle to a halt after bullets began to be fired, to the almost total lack of response by Secret Service agents, to the driver washing out the back seat with a bucket and sponge at Parkland Hospital, to the car being dismantled and rebuilt (on LBJ's orders), to the driver giving false testimony to the Warren Commission, to the windshields being switched, to the autopsy photographs being taken into custody before they were developed." The Zapruder and other films and photographs of the assassination clearly reveal the utter lack of response by Secret Service agents Roy Kellerman and William Greer, who were in the front seat of the presidential limousine. After the first two shots, Greer actually slowed the vehicle to less than five miles an hour. Kellerman merely sat in the front seat, seemingly oblivious to the shooting. In contrast, Secret Service Agent Rufus Youngblood responded instantly to the first shot, and before the head shots were fired, had covered Vice-President Lyndon Johnson with his body. Evidence of four police officers protecting the motorcade about what the presidential car did when the shots were fired in the Dealey Plaza. James Chaney (motorcyclist on motorcade): "From the time the first shot ran out, the car stopped completely, pulled to the left and stopped." Bobby Hargis (motorcyclist on motorcade): "The car stopped immediately after that and stayed stopped for about half a second, then took off." Earle Brown (police officer on overpass): "When the shots were fired, it (the car) stopped." J. W. Foster (police officer on overpass): "Immediately after Kennedy was struck... the car pulled to the curb."

Drug-Dealing Cops!

March 5, 2010 SCITUATE, R.I.—Three Providence police officers, including a narcotics detective and a school resource officer, were arrested Thursday on charges that they helped with a cocaine-dealing operation. Detective Joseph Colanduono, Patrolman Robert Hamlin and Sergeant Steven Gonsalves were arrested at police headquarters and have been suspended without pay, said Providence Police Chief Dean Esserman, who called it a "hard day" for his department. The officers either used the cocaine or helped arrange the drug deals, police said. "These actions that we saw are an offensive display of a violation of trust that we cannot and will not tolerate," Attorney General Patrick Lynch said. The arrests followed a more than four-month investigation that began with information from a state police detective and involved wiretaps and intercepted phone calls. Police seized several hundred grams of cocaine and firearms as part of the probe. Three other men were arrested, including Hamlin's brother, Albert, who police describe as a major cocaine dealer and the primary target of their investigation. Police say Robert Hamlin, a school resource officer at a Providence high school, helped his brother avoid getting caught by giving names of narcotics detectives and providing descriptions of their police cars, said State Police Capt. David Neill. The media reported that Gonsalves is a former driver for Providence Mayor David Cicilline and the husband of the mayor's executive assistant, Xiomara Gonsalves. The media said the mayor described his assistant as "incredibly heartbroken." Cicilline's spokeswoman, Karen Southern, did not return calls seeking comment Thursday night. Also arrested was Khalid Mason, who in 2007 faced drug dealing charges that were dismissed by a federal judge after a Providence police sergeant testified at a pretrial hearing that he didn't have any notes or reports from his investigation. That case is not connected to the current arrests, police said. Mason supplied drugs to Albert Hamlin, who would purchase one kilogram of cocaine at a time for about $35,000 and break down the drugs into smaller quantities, which he would then sell, police said. Gonsalves, 47, is charged with soliciting another to commit a crime. Robert Hamlin, 33, is charged with conspiracy to possess cocaine, and Colanduono, 44, is charged with conspiracy to deal cocaine and compounding and concealing a felony. A phone message left with the police union was not immediately returned, and it was not immediately clear if the officers had lawyers. Gonsalves was released on personal recognizance by a bail commissioner Thursday evening and is due in court March 18. The other five defendants, including the two officers, are being held without bail overnight and will be arraigned Friday in Providence District Court. State Police Col. Brendan Doherty told the media that at least some calls were made when the officers were on duty, though police say there's no evidence that any drug dealing took place at a school. Cicilline called the arrests "gravely disappointing" and said the officers deserve to be prosecuted aggressively. The investigation is continuing and more police officers are expected to be arrested.

Questions Abound!

Posted: 7:33 AM EDT, Thu March 27, 2014 - Updated: 6:00 AM PDT, Thu March 27, 2014

Windermere, Fla. (WCJB) -- Brandon Goode, 18, and Alexandria "Alex" Hollinghurst, 17, both of Davenport, Florida, are accused of fatally shooting a police officer before apparently committing suicide. Windermere police Officer Robert German called for support after witnessing Goode and Hollinghurst -- who had been reported missing -- walking along a street early Saturday. But when backup arrived, German was found lying on the ground, suffering from a gunshot wound, according to Polk County authorities. German, 31, was later pronounced dead at an Orlando hospital; the teens' lifeless bodies were discovered under brush not far from where German had been shot, county authorities said.

The days leading up to the celebrated officer's death weave a complicated web that has left investigators puzzled over what happened. A five-year veteran with the Windermere Police Department, German had just returned to the force after being on "light-duty status" following surgery for an injury he suffered several months ago, Windermere Police Chief David Ogden said. Just two days before the shooting, the two teens ran away from home, leaving only letters behind for their families to find. "To my loving parents, I am sorry for all the pain and misery I have brought you both, not just now but from these past few years as well," begins Brandon Goode's note, hand-written in neat, even letters. "I don't want to go through life knowing because of my mistakes that I amounted to nothing and was there fore (sic) a disappointment. Don't take that as me putting the blame on you because that is the furthest thing from the truth. Both of you have been so amazing with your constant help and support through my life."

"I love you with all my heart," the letter reads. "Please don't be sad, this is what I want now, I get to die peacefully with the woman I love, the woman of my dreams, my fiancé (yes we were engaged!). I miss you both so much already." Hollinghurst penned loving missives addressed to her sister and father, but to her mother, she directed a bitter letter that suggests the two had a turbulent relationship. "Thank you, for trying to talk and understand me after me being honest, after trying to fix things, thank you for turning a conversation about depression and suicide into something about you," the letter says. "If I had stayed another minute I would have painted the walls and stained the carpets with my blood, so you could clean it up." Once the letters were found, the couple's parents called police to alert them to the teens' disappearances.

Using cell phone tracking technology, Kissimmee police officers found the two parked in Goode's car. When the officer asked Goode to step out of the automobile, he "cranked the vehicle, put the vehicle in drive and sped away," according to a Polk County Sheriff's Office incident report. Later that day, Kissimmee police filed a warrant to charge Goode with resisting a law enforcement officer without violence and reckless driving. The next day, German encountered the duo in Windermere, just west of Orlando. German stopped them and called for assistance, police say. The responding deputies found German "lying on the roadway, mortally wounded," the Orange County Sheriff's Office said. The deputies performed what is called a tactical rescue, using a patrol car to shield their fallen comrade. They allegedly heard two gunshots during this response. Upon searching nearby woods, Orange County sheriff's deputies found Brandon Goode and Alex Hollinghurst dead, lying in some brush, from what are believed to be self-inflicted wounds.

Unanswered questions remain after Brandon Goode's death and still haunt his parents. Goode's parents acknowledged the tragedy in their statement. "Words do not exist to express the measure of our sorrow and sadness," Ricke and Connie Goode said in a statement issued Wednesday to Corrupt Justice™ media affiliates. "Whether mental illness, substance abuse or something else, we are a family searching."

"We cannot comprehend the senseless loss of Officer German's life, the death of Alexandria Hollinghurst and for our family, the loss of our 18 year old son, Brandon," the note says. "Our deepest sympathy and our heartfelt prayers go out to the friends and family of Officer German. We are so, so sorry to them for what happened and they will be forever in our prayers. We know a community grieves and like everyone else in our community, we ourselves are struggling to understand this most horrific tragedy. We have no answers, only questions."
.
Goode was arrested earlier this year for possessing alcohol while underage and possession of marijuana and had been arrested in 2012 for an aggravated assault on his mother, according to incident reports from the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Memphis, TN -- A rape and incest case involving a Memphis police officer grew even more disturbing Wednesday when information surfaced that his parents also have been arrested in the case.


Henry Monger Jr. (pictured left) and his wife, Barbara, were arrested Oct. 18. Monger Jr. was charged with two counts of rape of a child, three counts of rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. Barbara Monger was charged with coercion of a witness in the case. Monger Jr. remains jailed on a $500,000 bond, while his wife has been released.

Police officer Cornelius Monger, 33 (pictured left) faces charges of rape, incest and statutory rape by an authority figure following an investigation by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office Special Victims Unit. He was released on $100,000 bond Tuesday after turning himself in to authorities earlier that day.

According to an affidavit, the elder Monger, 61, stands accused of raping three family members, beginning when each of them was a child. He allegedly began assaulting one girl at the age of 5, another at the age of 12 and the third at the age of 15. His wife, according to the affidavit, was aware of the actions and even witnessed at least one assault.

Records show that Cornelius Monger, who was hired by the Memphis Police Department in July 2006, performed adequately for the department, earning satisfactory marks in all evaluated areas of his performance.

However, he was issued a written reprimand last month when he failed to respond to a dispatcher who tried to reach him over the radio 26 times over a period of six minutes. Otherwise, Monger's file is clear.

Records show that Monger filed for a business license in April for Cre-8-tive Minds Day Care, although it was unclear whether he was actually operating the business.

He began studying at the University of Tennessee-Martin in the fall of 1998 and took classes until the spring of 2004. Monger earned college incentive pay from MPD for his university credits despite a 1.92 grade-point average.

Monger earned failing grades in introductory criminal justice and principles of law enforcement, but got A's in his karate, marksmanship and flag football courses. Monger also received an A in a class focusing on socially deviant behavior.

So far this year, 20 other police officers have been arrested for a range of criminal charges. Police Director Toney Armstrong promised to continue to "weed out" officers who violate the law. Both Armstrong and Memphis Mayor A C Wharton have promised sweeping reviews of the department's disciplinary and hiring policies following the spate of arrests this year.

Memphis, TN -- A Memphis Police officer has been arrested for rape and incest in a case involving a 16-year-old girl. Cornelius Monger, 33 (pictured above, center) has been charged with rape, statutory rape by an authority figure and incest. Monger turned himself in to authorities Tuesday afternoon, and is being held on $100,000 bond. This is the latest arrest of a Memphis police officer in a year in which at least 20 others have been charged with a variety of offenses.

In a statement, Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong condemned the officer, calling him a "criminal."

"It sickens me to know that an officer of the law has violated the innocence of a child. This individual calls himself a Memphis Police officer; I call him a criminal. The actions of this individual will undoubtedly bruise the image of the Memphis Police Department, but the citizens of Memphis must recognize that those officers that choose to violate the law only represent a small percentage of officers. Your Memphis Police Department is comprised of over 2,400 officers that choose to do good. We will continue to work hard to serve the citizens of Memphis, and we will continue to weed out those who violate the law."

The Shelby County Sheriff's Department's Special Victims Unit began investigating the case in October after multiple sources reported that Monger was engaged in "inappropriate sexual contact with a member of his family," according to a release from the Sheriff's Department.

Witnesses and a victim came forward to corroborate the allegations, the department said, adding that the abuse began when she was 16.

City officials announced last week that they would conduct a wide-ranging review of Memphis Police Department policies, beginning with discipline. Officials will also look at best policing practices in other cities.

Monger, assigned to the Old Allen Station, has been relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

He has been employed by the Memphis Police Department since July 10, 2006.

Georgia -- A police officer in Georgia is under criminal investigation for allegedly kicking a woman who was nearly nine-months pregnant in the stomach before charging her with obstruction of justice. In an incident report filed on Dec. 12, 2011, Dekalb County Police Officer Jerad Wheeler wrote that he gave "three verbal commands to 'Get back'" to Raven Dozier. The woman was in her third trimester at the time and visibly distraught over witnessing Wheeler taser her brother, Darius Usher, in response to a domestic disturbance. Wheeler wrote that Dozier began "moving aggressively," prompting the officer to "kick her in the stomach to push her back," just as he was "taught to do in the Academy," according to the report. "At the time of the altercation it was very dark and Ms. Dozier had a larger shirt on," Wheeler wrote in his report. "I could not tell by the sight of her at the time that she was pregnant."


Wheeler placed Dozier in the back seat of his vehicle and brought her to the police station. Authorities gave her a choice. "They asked me did I want to go to jail or to the hospital," Dozier later wrote in a complaint filed with the Dakalb County Police. "I said I wanted to go to the hospital." Doctors could already see contusions and spotting, according to her attorney. The attorney says that the infant became ill within the womb as a result of defecation from the impact. Following the hospital visit, police returned Dozier to the station "where she was refused by intake," according to the police report. Authorities gave Dozier a court date and released her. Two weeks after being kicked in the stomach, Dozier prematurely delivered her child by C-section.

Records show that Dozier filed a complaint with the DeKalb police department's internal affairs unit, but authorities never investigated the incident. Instead, four supervisors and an internal affairs detective approved the actions, stating that the use of force met policy, media sources reported. Approximately six months later -- following an overlooked internal affairs complaint and a premature birth by C-section -- Dozier is suing the county as the district attorney investigates Wheeler's actions.

"This officer is just another loose cannon," Dozier's attorney told media sources. "And I don't know how a 180-pound pregnant woman comes at you aggressively." The attorney says that Wheeler, at the advice of his supervisor, arrested Dozier because he would "need to be justified" for kicking a pregnant woman if "something were to happen to the baby." Police charged Dozier with obstruction and disorderly conduct, a "higher charge than the guy they tased," the attorney said. The Dekalb District Attorney's Office has since dropped the charges against Dozier, who is now suing a county where her attorney says police officers are "off the chain."


On Thursday, three other Dekalb county cops were charged with beating teenage suspects, some of whom were in handcuffs at the time, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Wheeler is also the focus of two other questionable incidents in which he is accused of killing an innocent family's leashed dog and forcing a 53-year-old woman's face onto a police vehicle.

"Child Whistle Blowin'!"

Posted: Posted on: 7:47pm on May 8, 2012| Updated on: 6:01pm PDT on May 13, 2012

Happy Valley, PA -- The Penn State football assistant whose report of Jerry Sandusky allegedly attacking a child in the showers led to Joe Paterno's firing said in a court filing Tuesday that he is suing the school. The "writ of summons" filed by a lawyer for Mike McQueary (pictured below, right) who described it as a whistle-blower case, but the brief document was not accompanied by a full complaint that would lay out the allegations. The filing was first reported by a local media outlet on its website. McQueary's attorney did not respond to a phone message at his office late Tuesday. His father, John McQueary, declined to comment on his behalf. Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre said school officials were unable to comment because they had not seen the complaint.

Penn State's trustees have said they fired Paterno as coach partly because of his response to the incident. Paterno reported the matter to administrators Gary Schultz and Tim Curley, which trustees have called "his minimum legal duty" and "a failure of leadership." Paterno was fired as coach in November and died in January of lung cancer. McQueary, then a graduate assistant, has said he complained to Paterno of seeing the boy in a locker room shower naked with Sandusky. He testified in December that he believed Sandusky was molesting the boy and "having some type of sexual intercourse with him," but added he was not "100 percent" certain they were having intercourse because of his vantage point. McQueary, who was a receivers coach, was placed on paid administrative leave by the school after the three men were arrested in November. All three have pleaded not guilty.

Pennsylvania prosecutors said Monday they now believe the alleged shower assault took place a year earlier than they first claimed. The attorney general's office said in a court filing that investigators concluded the alleged attack took place around Feb. 9, 2001. Previously filed court documents, including a grand jury report issued before Sandusky's arrest dated it March 1, 2002.

Child Lovin' Cops!


FBI Child Porn!

Posted: 5:04 PM EDT | Tue May 15, 2012 | Updated on: 10:20 PM PDT | Tue May 15, 2012 |

Carmel, Indiana (WCJB) -- A former supervisory FBI agent has been arrested and jailed on child pornography charges. Donald Sachtleben was taken into custody and charged Monday after a nationwide undercover investigation of illegal child porn images traded over the Internet. The arrest was a result a months-long probe, said the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, Joseph Hogsett. "The mission of our Project Safe Childhood initiative is to investigate and prosecute anyone found to (be) engaged in the sexual exploitation of children," Hogsett said in a news release. "No matter who you are, you will be brought to justice if you are found guilty of such criminal behavior."

A federal complaint alleges 30 graphic images and video were found on Sachtleben's laptop computer late last week when FBI agents searched his home, about 23 miles north of Indianapolis. According to the criminal complaint, a federal-state joint task force had been investigating an Illinois man allegedly trading child porn images as far back as September 2010. That suspect was arrested in January, and a search of his computer reportedly led to Sachtleben (pictured below, right) who was using the e-mail name pedodave69. According to the affidavit, an e-mail from that account was sent to the Illinois suspect last fall, along with nine images of child porn. "Saw your profile on (a file sharing network). Hope you like these and can send me some of ours (sic). I have even better ones if you like." Prosecutors say Sachtleben sent that e-mail. Sachtleben's wife was interviewed by agents during the execution of the search warrant and denied any involvement with child porn. She was not taken into custody. The 54-year-old resident of Carmel, Indiana, has pleaded not guilty and has a detention hearing in federal court Wednesday.

Sachtleben is currently an Oklahoma State University visiting professor, according to his online resume. He is director of training at the school's Center for Improvised Explosives, but all references to his work have now been removed from the university's website. There was no indication from the school as to whether it had suspended him. Calls to the university and his Indianapolis attorneys were not immediately returned. He had been an FBI special agent from 1983 to 2008, serving as a bomb technician. He worked on the Oklahoma City bombing and Unabomber investigations, according to his university biography. A separate LinkedIn profile filled out by Sachtleben says he is an "accomplished investigator with more than 25 years of experience in FBI major case management, counter terrorism investigations, bombing prevention, post blast investigations and public speaking." If convicted, Sachtleben would face up to 20 years in prison on the charge of distribution of child porn, and an additional 10 years for possession. The case is U.S. v. Sachtleben (1:12-mj-316).

FBI officials in Washington had no comment on the arrest.

Child Pornography PD!

Posted on: May 9, 2012 | 22:20 PDT | Updated on: May 12, 2012 | 15:35 PDT |

Long Beach, Calif. (WCJB) – Long Beach police say an officer who was arrested last month for investigation of possession of child pornography has been arrested again for several sexually-based offenses. A police department statement says Officer Noe Yanez (pictured left) was arrested Wednesday and was being held on $951,000 bail. Yanez was first arrested and booked April 19 for possession of child pornography following an investigation into alleged inappropriate contact with a minor. Authorities say Yanez was re-arrested after Long Beach police continued their initial investigation and interviewed additional victims. The department says Yanez has been suspended without pay since the first arrest, and will remain on suspension pending the outcome of the internal and criminal investigations.

Meemken House Predator!

Posted: 11:40 PM, May 7, 2012 - Updated: 05:40 PM, May 10, 2012 PDT

ANOKA, SC — Phil Meemken will lose his job as a Stearns County sheriff’s sergeant and will have to live the rest of his life as a registered predatory sex offender. Three young people who accused Meemken of sexual assault will have to live with the knowledge that he will avoid prison and the equivalent of a life sentence he could have gotten if convicted of the charges against him. The longtime Stearns sergeant pleaded guilty Monday to one count of felony fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and two gross misdemeanors for providing alcohol to minors. The felony conviction will mean the loss of his peace officer’s license and his career in law enforcement. The plea came as jury selection was about to begin in a trial that was scheduled to last at least two weeks. It also came with a lengthy explanation in court about why prosecutors in the Anoka County Attorney’s Office decided to settle the case.

The victims and Meemken (pictured left) were so drunk during the incidents that it would have been difficult to convince a jury of what really happened, Anoka County prosecutor Wade Kish told Stearns County District Court Judge Vicki Landwehr. The incidents weren’t reported right away, and then there were significant delays in getting the case to trial. It led to a plea that clearly didn’t sit well with the victims who were in court Monday. And Paul Young, head of the violent crimes division in the Anoka County Attorney’s Office, understands. He was involved in the decision to settle the case short of trial. “We hope over time (the victims) can sit back and say that we did the best we could in a very challenging case with a lot of evidentiary issues,” Young said outside of court. “No result is perfect. But the certainty here, based on the evidence, is the best of a bad situation.” And prosecutors involved in the negotiations that led to Meemken’s guilty plea Monday will have to live with a difficult decision to take a plea that sees 21 of the felony counts against Meemken dismissed.

Forged Credentials!

OLD FORGE, Pa. - Officials in an eastern Pennsylvania county have announced the arrest of a local police chief in an indecent assault case involving a minor. Lackawanna County officials told media sources on Wednesday that Old Forge Police Chief Lawrence Semenza (pictured above, cuffed) was charged with aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault and related counts. Officials said in a news release that the charges stem from incidents involving an underage girl between November 2004 and March 2007.

A 23-year-old woman walked into the district attorney's office during the first week of May (2012) to report that she'd endured years of sexual abuse inside the police and fire departments of a northeastern Pennsylvania town. Within days of the report, state police had arrested the police chief, a captain and a former volunteer firefighter in Old Forge, a Scranton-area borough with about 8,300 residents. The FBI has joined the investigation, and Lackawanna County prosecutors say there may be still more arrests as authorities work to confirm details of the accuser's story.

Deputy District Attorney Jennifer McCambridge said Capt. Jamie Krenitsky, 34 (pictured below, left) and a former volunteer firefighter, Walt Chiavacci, 46 (pictured below, right) both of whom were arrested last week, are also facing charges. McCambridge declined to say whether any additional accusers have come forward, but confirmed the investigation is ongoing. "It's certainly possible there could be other charges or other arrests," she said. McCambridge, the prosecutor, said the suspects' jobs played a role in the alleged abuse. "Your moral compass isn't developed at 14 and we can't expect them to look at things through the same prism of wisdom and experience that we as adults do," she said. "That's where their positions of authority would have had such a huge impact on what happened."

The woman approached prosecutors on May 2 and told them she'd had sexual contact with members of the police and fire departments starting in 2004, when she was 14 years old. An arrest affidavit says that Semenza, then a police sergeant and fire captain, met the teen when she became a junior firefighter. Semenza trained her and became a mentor, and soon was taking her out for coffee and buying her expensive fire equipment, including a helmet that cost hundreds of dollars. Within months, the relationship turned sexual, documents say, with multiple encounters in the firehouse kitchen, living area and shower beginning when the girl was 15. Semenza plied her with jewelry, including a Claddagh ring and a Maltese Cross charm and gold necklace, according to police. It's not clear how the alleged relationship broke off.

Semenza was in custody and it was unclear whether he had an attorney. A woman who answered the phone at his home hung up on a caller seeking comment.

While none of the suspects are accused of using force, Kristen Houser, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, said child predators often employ more subtle forms of coercion. And there's an inherent imbalance of power between a police officer and any civilian, much less a minor, she noted. "I'm just not sure how any teenage child would feel like they have a right or a place to not comply with a police officer," she said. Such cases "become even more egregious and outrageous because what path is left to those victims? Can I report it, will people believe me, what kind of danger will I put myself in if I tell his colleagues he's been doing this?"

Old Forge, PA -- The second-highest-ranking member of the Old Forge Police Department and a member of the borough's volunteer Fire Department were charged Thursday with sexually assaulting the same 15-year-old girl between 2004 and 2005. Old Forge police Capt. Jamie Krenitsky, 34, 19 Casey Ave., Old Forge, was arraigned on charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault and corruption of minors and later posted $25,000 bond for his release from Lackawanna County Prison. Walter Chiavacci, 46 (pictured below, right) of Old Forge, was charged with aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors. His bail information was not available late Thursday.

Following each of their arraignments, preliminary hearings for Capt. Krenitsky and Mr. Chiavacci were scheduled for May 9.

Corrupt Justice™ does not identify victims of alleged sexual assault. The investigation began Wednesday when the victim, now 23, reported the sexual assaults to the Lackawanna County district attorney's office. In an interview with investigators Wednesday, the victim explained she and Capt. Krenitsky (pictured left) became friendly through her involvement with the borough Fire Department. In January 2005, about the same time Capt. Krenitsky was promoted to captain, their relationship became sexual, she said. Over the course of about six months, Capt. Krenitsky and the victim would walk into the bunk room of the Fire Department - which is in the same building as the Police Department, 310 S. Main St. - lock the door behind them and the on-duty officer would take off his police belt, according to the complaint. Then, the two would remove their pants and perform oral sex on each other, according to the complaint. After outlining the allegations during the interview, the victim placed a recorded phone call to Capt. Krenitsky during which he admitted to the sexual activity the victim had described to investigators and repeatedly apologized, telling the victim that he "never wanted to hurt her," according to the complaint.

Soon after, investigators were at Capt. Krenitsky's Casey Avenue home, where he agreed to come in for an interview at the district attorney's office. There, Capt. Krenitsky admitted to being in the Fire Department bunk room with the victim, according to the complaint, but denied performing oral sex on her. Asked if she had performed oral sex on him, Capt. Krenitsky responded: "I would have to say yes," according to the complaint.

Hours later on Thursday, investigators from the state police and the Lackawanna County district attorney's office took Mr. Chiavacci into custody and he agreed to speak with them about the allegations against him, according to a criminal complaint. Mr. Chiavacci told investigators that he was at a party with the 15-year-old in July 2004 and he noticed she was very upset over breaking up with her boyfriend. After asking her if she would like to go for a walk to talk about the issue, Mr. Chiavacci and the 15-year-old girl went outside in a wooded area near Burger King, according to the complaint. Mr. Chiavacci tried to kiss the girl, but she turned her head away, at which point Mr. Chiavacci put his hands inside her underwear and touched her inappropriately, according to the complaint.

Old Forge Mayor Michele Avvisato said Capt. Krenitsky was suspended without pay and that Police Chief Larry Semenza was put on administrative leave with pay because he is also under investigation, though she would not elaborate on why he is being investigated. When asked about Ms. Avvisato's comments, Lackawanna County District Attorney Andy Jarbola declined to comment on whether Chief Semenza was under investigation. A message left on Chief Semenza's cellphone was not returned Thursday. Mr. Jarbola said Thursday afternoon that the investigation remains open and that additional arrests may be forthcoming. He would not say whether any of the remaining persons of interest are also members of the Old Forge Police Department.

Officer Kim Buggey, a 9-year veteran of the Old Forge Police Department, was named officer-in-charge by Ms. Avvisato in Chief Semenza's absence. Chief Semenza's leave and Capt. Krenitsky's arrest and suspension leave the department with three full-time officers, including Officer Buggey, and 13 part-time officers, Officer Buggey said.

On Thursday night, Old Forge Borough Council held an executive session with borough solicitor William Rinaldi and Ms. Avvisato. After the closed-door meeting, the mayor made about a minute-and-a-half-long statement, saying she and council "are certainly concerned for the victim and her family." The mayor, who noted she discussed the arrest with borough officials during the executive session, also said they are "shocked" and cooperating with authorities in the investigation. The mayor added that Capt. Krenitsky is suspended without pay until council meets at its "regular meeting and takes further action." Council's regular meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 15. After reading her statement, she and council members refused to answer questions.

About a half-dozen members of the public attended Thursday's meeting. "I was looking for some answers," Eileen Stefanko said. "I'm very disgusted about this." Robert Hughes said he is outraged and "very angry." "They have no respect for the taxpayers whatsoever," he said. Capt. Krenitsky's arrest Wednesday night was not the first time he was accused of inappropriate behavior toward members of the opposite sex. In February 2008, a former part-time female police officer with the department filed a federal sexual harassment lawsuit against Capt. Krenitsky and the borough, claiming he had asked fellow officers, both via two-way radio and in front of her, if they would either marry or have sex with her. The former officer, Michelle Venturi, later settled the case out of court for $125,000 in January 2010. Mr. Jarbola asked that anyone with any information regarding the case and the Old Forge Police Department or Fire Department contact state police at 963-3156.

"I thought, 'That's not right.'"

-- Hebron (Ohio) Police Lt. Larry Brooks commenting that after Officer George Gibson left the Hebron Police Department, Brooks said he would see Gibson in the Heath area with the (minor) girl, who looked young. Most notably, Lt. Brooks failed to take action, or notify law enforcement officials.
HEATH, OHIO -- A former police officer accused of having a sexual relationship with a girl that spanned 10 years and led to three children while he was on the force was arrested Friday morning. George B. Gibson, 43 (pictured left) last known address 1595 Heather-view Lane, Heath, is suspected of engaging in sexual contact and conduct with a young girl between Aug. 21, 1993, and Aug. 31, 2003, Licking County Prosecutor Ken Oswalt said. The girl was 8 years old when the suspected sexual abuse began, Oswalt said. The girl, whom Gibson knew through her mother, was 15 years old when she first had Gibson's child, who now is 10, Oswalt said. They have two other children, ages 7 and 19 months, together, he said. Gibson worked as an officer for the Hebron and Union Township police departments while the suspected abuse occurred. His police officer certification was suspended in February 2006 because of inactivity, according to the Ohio Attorney General's Office.

During his time in Union Township, he was disciplined for failing to respond to dispatches, resulting in Licking County Sheriff's Office deputies being sent in his place. Gibson left the department after a disciplinary hearing, Union Township Police Chief Paula Greene said. Greene said she did not know what Gibson did with his personal life but was concerned the alleged behavior occurred while he worked for the police department.

Hebron police officers also were unaware of the alleged behavior at the time, Hebron Lt. Larry Brooks said. After Gibson left the department, Brooks said he would see Gibson in the Heath area with the girl, who looked young. "I thought, 'That's not right,'" Brooks said. The alleged behavior was uncovered during Licking County Child Support Enforcement Agency proceedings when officials realized the pair's oldest child was conceived when the mother was 15 years old, Oswalt said.

On Thursday, a grand jury charged Gibson with one count of gross sexual imposition, a fourth-degree felony, one count of rape, a first-degree felony, two counts of corruption of a minor, fourth-degree felonies, one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a fourth-degree felony, and five counts of sexual battery, third-degree felonies. The indictment was sealed until Gibson's arrest Friday morning because authorities were concerned he might leave the area, Oswalt said. Gibson has hired an attorney and has not made a statement to Heath police, who investigated the incidents, Oswalt said. A bond hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

Explicit PD!

PATERSON, N.J. - A New Jersey police officer sent a 12-year-old girl explicit photos of himself in uniform and tried to set up a sexual encounter with her, days after meeting the girl while assisting her family in an unrelated police matter, authorities said Wednesday. Woodland Park Police Officer Steven Vigorito Jr. (pictured left) pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges ranging from attempted aggravated sexual assault to luring and enticing a child. He was being held on $250,000 bail following his arrest while on duty Tuesday night.

Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes said the girl's mother complained to the police department on Monday that the officer had made inappropriate comments to her daughter, had given her his private cellphone number and had asked her to text him. Woodlawn Park Police Chief Anthony Galietti said they immediately contacted the prosecutor's office, whose detectives posed as the girl and started exchanging texts with Vigorito. The texts became increasingly explicit over the course of several days, prosecutors said. Vigorito eventually texted the girl photographs in which he was exposing himself while wearing his police uniform and arranged to meet her for a sexual encounter, prosecutors alleged. The girl was never in harm's way, and never exchanged texts with the officer, Valdes said. "What is so disturbing about this, is the person who was to assist the family, ends up preying on the family," Valdes said.

The 39-year-old Vigorito has been with the police department for 12 years in Woodland Park, a small suburb about 15 miles from Manhattan. The town, known until a recent voter-approved name change as West Paterson, is a bucolic, leafy borough of neatly landscaped homes adjacent to Paterson, a grittier, more industrialized urban neighbor. Vigorito, who media sources reported is a married father of two, was arrested Tuesday night in the police station while on the night shift, according to Galietti, who said the patrolman was suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

The arrest of one of the 25 officers on the force has shaken the small department, Galietti said. "It's very upsetting, when you have one of your own do something like this. It's very upsetting," he said. Galietti added that department officials had acted immediately upon receiving the family's complaint about the officer, and had no hesitation in alerting the prosecutor's office. "When this came to light we went into it head-on. We didn't care if it was one of our own," he said. "I'm the father of five kids, and this is wrong. It's a very inappropriate situation. Unfortunately, he (Vigorito) had a badge at the time."

Santa Fe, New Mexico -- Police sergeant Mike Eiskant in Santa Fe, New Mexico, was recently caught on video (below) masturbating while he was on duty. The video was filmed by the dashboard camera of his cruiser. The video released to the media does not show the inside of the cruiser, but the audio is explicit. While having a very graphic sexual conversation with himself, the officer can be heard saying: “Oh, show me those big beautiful breasts, baby.” Authorities speculate that Sgt. Eiskant was looking at pictures of naked women on his cell phone.


Sgt. Eiskant recently entered a no contest plea in Bernalillo County District Court for two counts of attempt to commit a felony for false imprisonment, one count of stalking, two counts of harassment and charges for larceny and possession of marijuana. A statement from New Mexico Attorney General Gary King’s office said that Sgt. Eiskant promised he “will never again become a law enforcement officer anywhere in the United States,” as part of his plea deal. When Sgt. Eiskant was promoted to the rank of sergeant, he was issued the badge number 69.

Cop Child-Rape Cover-up!

May 13, 2012Update!



Florida -- Disgraced former Windermere Police Chief Daniel Saylor was sentenced this morning to one year in the Orange County Jail for official misconduct. Saylor faced as much as 20 years in prison. Judge C. Jeffery Arnold recommended work release for Saylor. If he is found to qualify, he will be allowed to work during the day and be housed in a "secure facility" at night. Saylor also will be placed on three years' state probation after his release. He was ordered to repay $5,000 in investigative costs, as well as assorted court costs.

Saylor accepted a plea deal last month in which he pleaded no contest to two counts of official misconduct, solicitation to commit official misconduct and solicitation to tamper with evidence. He also lost his law-enforcement certification. In return, the state dropped charges of bribery and unlawful compensation for official behavior against Saylor. He appeared to be trying to maintain his composure as he was fingerprinted, handcuffed and led from the courtroom by deputies.

Saylor was arrested and fired after a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation accused him of halting a child-sex investigation into a friend and urging one of his officers to destroy records. Scott Bush, Saylor's friend whose case sparked his firing, is charged with lewd or lascivious molestation and two counts of sexual battery on a child younger than 12. He is awaiting trial.

A central figure in the continuing corruption investigation of former Windermere police Chief Daniel Saylor was arrested Friday after being accused of forging a motorist's name on a traffic ticket. Raul Carvajal (pictured above, center) who recently was fired from the Windermere Police Department for undisclosed reasons, was arrested by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on one count of organized scheme to defraud, a felony, according to FDLE. Agents arrested him shortly after noon and took him to the Orange County Jail, where he was booked and held on $2,500 bail.

The arrest is the latest in the wealthy Central Florida community's scandal that prompted a shake-up of its 24-member Police Department. FDLE continues to investigate accusations of bribery, ticket fixing and evidence theft as well as two child-rape investigations Saylor is charged with shutting down as a favor to a friend, the accused rapist.

Carvajal's role in the corruption investigation involves an allegation that he delivered a $1,000 cash bribe to Saylor during a party last December at the chief's Sanford home. The money was a bribe that Saylor has been accused of demanding in return for his promise to hire a friend of Carvajal's before the man's law-enforcement certification expired in December, according to FDLE records released by the Orange-Osceola State Attorney's Office. No criminal charges have been filed over the bribe allegation, which was documented by secretly recorded conversations between Carvajal, 40, and Officer Irvin Murr. Other secretly recorded conversations between Murr and Saylor led to the chief's arrest in January and subsequent firing, court records show. Before delivering the cash, Carvajal photocopied 10 $100 bills provided by his friend and police applicant Humberto Garcia of Kissimmee before Carvajal said he gave the money to Saylor.

Garcia was not hired by Saylor, who was arrested Jan. 12 on charges of giving unlawful compensation for official behavior and one count of official misconduct. Records show Garcia has never worked in Florida as a police officer and was turned down twice by the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.

In a later recorded conversation, Carvajal told Murr he had been questioned by FDLE about the $1,000 payment and lied to agents by telling them it was a personal gift to his boss. Last year, Saylor had promised to fire Carvajal in May after Orlando police complained that Carvajal needlessly triggered a countywide emergency response by making a Signal 43 — RUSH: Officer Needs Help — radio call while working off-duty without jurisdiction at an Orlando apartment complex. The next day, Saylor changed his mind and let Carvajal remain a Windermere police officer, according to Orlando police records

February 17, 2011Update!
"If they nail me for official misconduct, I will go to jail, they will arrest me, and I will be done," , according to FDLE documents. "I'd get rid of whatever you have … It's called a shredder … you know what I am saying. Build a bonfire in the backyard."

-- Windermere Police Chief Daniel Saylor to Windermere police Cpl. Irvin Murr on Nov. 14, 2010.
WINDERMERE, Fla. — Police Lt. Paul Conway resigned Friday from the scandal-rocked Windermere Police Department, calling his exit a selfless act to help heal the agency. "Paul was the number two man there and as long as he remained, a cloud would hang over him and the department," Conway's lawyer of Orlando, said Friday evening.

Police Chief Mike McCoy, who took command this week, accepted Conway's resignation after meeting with him and his attorney. The chief, who could not be reached Friday evening, replaced Chief Daniel Saylor (pictured left), who was arrested last month (January 2011) on corruption charges accusing him of shutting down a child rape investigation to help a friend. Conway had worked for Windermere for about 14 years. His resignation followed a meeting earlier Friday in which Shaeffer and the officer met with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which arrested Saylor.

Conway's attorney said he (Conway) will meet again with FDLE next week to demonstrate his complete cooperation with the investigation and willingness to testify in the criminal case against Saylor. No other Windermere police officers besides Saylor have been arrested. The attorney said his discussion with FDLE indicated, "There is no plan to bring charges against Conway either now or in the immediate future."

Court records released this week showed that a Windermere police officer who secretly recorded five conversations with Saylor for FDLE said Conway ordered him to tell the state Department of Children and Families that Windermere would not investigate the rape allegations against the chief's friend. Frantically trying to cover up why the rape investigations were dropped, Saylor began promising days off and even a possible promotion if the case detective would lie to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and destroy paperwork related to the case, according to records released by the Orange-Osceola State Attorney's Office. What the brash cop with a tarnished past didn't know was that every word was being secretly recorded. "If they nail me for official misconduct, I will go to jail, they will arrest me, and I will be done," Saylor told Windermere police Cpl. Irvin Murr on Nov. 14, according to FDLE documents. "I'd get rid of whatever you have … It's called a shredder … you know what I am saying. Build a bonfire in the backyard."

The release of more than 140 pages of tape-recordings and interviews by FDLE with current and former Windermere police officers revealed for the first time the broad scope of the corruption investigation in Central Florida's wealthiest town.

Under Saylor's leadership since 2002, Windermere became known as a department willing to hire officers who resigned from other agencies rather than be fired for a range of misbehavior. Saylor resigned from the Melbourne Police Department in 1996 after being stopped in Orlando with a prostitute, records show. Several current and former officers told agents they feared Saylor would retaliate by ruining their careers if he found out they had talked. Officers talked about an "unspoken 'code of conduct' in the town of Windermere that certain 'privileged' families are granted immunity from the WPD and Chief Saylor, simply for being long-time residents …" according to a statement to FDLE from former Windermere police Cpl. Carl Head.

Various officers told FDLE that traffic tickets were regularly voided for residents and government employees. Murr claimed Bush's landscaping service began working on Saylor's home in Seminole County shortly after 2009 child-rape investigations against him were shelved. Kristin Zeigler-Harris, a former officer who investigated earlier child-rape allegations against Bush in 2003, told agents Saylor ordered her to give copies of all the records to Bush, documents show. And a former head of investigations advised FDLE agents to use caution about what they told Town Manager Cecilia Bernier. "The town manager and Chief Daniel Saylor are good friends and they ride motorcycles together," warned Clark Egerton, who now works as a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.

Tuesday night, after the Windermere Town Council swore in McCoy as the town's new top cop, Bernier said she was not a friend of Saylor's, had not socialized with him or visited his home. She declined to comment on whether town police had voided traffic tickets for residents.

More charges possible

The investigation into Saylor began last summer when Head provided FDLE with a copy of the 2009 rape complaint that Saylor would not investigate despite requests by the state Department of Children and Families. FDLE investigative notes indicate agents intended to charge Saylor with witness tampering, a felony, for trying to persuade Murr not to assist in the state probe. Documents also show that agents intended to charge Saylor with bribery and tampering with evidence, both felonies. As of Tuesday, Saylor had not been charged with any of those crimes. Saylor's attorney could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

In October, Murr told FDLE investigators that everyone on the Windermere police force knew that Saylor and Bush were friends and that they rode motorcycles together. On several occasions, according to FDLE, Murr and others had seen Bush enter the Windermere police headquarters through a locked employee entrance that required a key, making Murr suspect that Bush "has a key to the department."

In a recorded conversation with Murr in November, Saylor promised Murr a day-shift job and discussed records in the Bush case that Saylor told FDLE were lost but that Murr claimed he had thrown away. "But what I'm saying Irv is that you know what, I never came to you to your face and said drop the charges right now, did I ever come to you and say drop the charges? No, did you know Scott was my friend, probably yea but did I ever said drop the [expletive] charges let him go."

Saylor, 44, remains free on bail after being charged Jan. 12, 2011 with unlawful compensation for official behavior and official misconduct. His friend, Scott Frederick Bush, 50, was arrested the same day and charged with sexual battery of a child under 12 and lewd or lascivious molestation of a victim under 12 - crimes that could land him in prison for the rest of his life.

Third World Cop



Description: Capone (Paul Campbell), a loose-cannon cop, returns to his home in Kingston to join the island nation's special forces. Immediately upon return, Capone discovers an operation consisting of illegal importation of guns via church charities. It's up to Capone to stop the importation of these guns; and this might mean going up against one of his childhood friends. (Runtime: 01:38:10)
