Just another lowlife slime who was in uniform.

Police officer Jordan Lloyd Koch jailed for sexually assaulting teenage girl.

Though 3yrs and 3mths jail with a non-parole period of 20mths doesn't seem to be enough.

Isn't having 1 cop for every 5 residents in a small town a bit excessive? Well the crooked police chief didn't think so.

Texas town with 50 cops for 250 people just disbanded its entire police force.

Residents of a small Texas town that is famous mostly for a robust speed trap operation are worried after the city council disbanded the entire police force.

The mass firing came after an investigation by KHOU, a Houston-based CBS affiliate, which found that the Coffee City Police Department was employing 50 police officers, many with questionable backgrounds, to police the town of just 250 residents.

The force brought in more than $1 million in court fees from more than 5,100 traffic citations last year, which is the most citations for any town in Texas the size of Coffee City, the report says.

According to the outlet, the city's now-fired police chief, John Jay Portillo, who was hired in 2021, quadrupled the size of the police department in a span of just two years.

And a lot of those officers had troubled pasts.

More than half of Coffee City's cops had been either suspended, demoted, fired, or dishonorably discharged from their previous jobs in law enforcement, according to personnel documents obtained by the outlet.

And at least a dozen Coffee City officers had previously faced criminal charges, ranging from aggravated assault with a deadly weapon to endangering a child, KHOU reported.

Jeff Blackstone, the mayor of Coffee City, said in a September 1 press release that the city council had put Portillo on a 30-day suspension and would be conducting an internal investigation into his conduct.

Following that investigation, the city council on Monday voted to fire Portillo and temporarily "deactivate" the entire police department, according to a local CBS station. The city's investigation confirmed allegations that Portillo had received a DUI prior to being hired as police chief, which he did not disclose in his job application, according to the outlet........

Feds open investigation into claims Baton Rouge police tortured detainees.

The Justice Department has opened a civil rights investigation into claims that the police department for Baton Rouge, Louisiana, abused and tortured suspects, the FBI announced Friday.

Numerous lawsuits allege that the Street Crimes Unit of the Baton Rouge Police Department abused drug suspects at a recently shuttered narcotics processing center — an unmarked warehouse nicknamed the "Brave Cave."

The FBI said experienced prosecutors and agents are "reviewing allegations that members of the department may have abused their authority."

Baton Rouge police said in a statement that its chief, Murphy Paul "met with FBI officials and requested their assistance to ensure an independent review of these complaints."

In late August, Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced that the "Brave Cave" was being permanently closed, and that the Street Crimes Unit was also being disbanded.

This comes as a federal lawsuit filed earlier this week by Ternell Brown, a grandmother, alleges that police officers conducted an unlawful strip-search on her.

The lawsuit alleges that officers pulled over Brown while she was driving with her husband near her Baton Rouge neighborhood in a black Dodge Charger in June. Police officers ordered the couple out of the car and searched the vehicle, finding pills in a container, court documents said. Brown said the pills were prescription and she was in "lawful possession" of the medication. Police officers became suspicious when they found she was carrying two different types of prescription pills in one container, the complaint said....

Another candidate for castration.

Calls for a Victorian police ombudsman to tackle 'predatory behaviour', after senior officer jailed for raping junior colleague.

A senior police officer's conviction for raping and repeatedly sexually assaulting a "vulnerable" junior colleague has led to renewed calls for a Victorian police ombudsman, and a fresh focus on "predatory behaviour" by members of the force.

In the latest case, a leading senior constable from western Victoria was sentenced to almost five years in jail for multiple offences he committed one night in 2020 at his home, after he and his wife had invited the victim, her partner and her three children over for drinks.

A Victoria Police spokesperson said the force had "zero tolerance for employees who commit sexual assault including predatory behaviour", and offered support to anyone reporting such behaviour.

"Specialist support is available to anyone who wishes to make a report about a Victoria Police employee through the Sexual Offences and Family Violence Unit's (SOFVU) Witness Support Unit," the spokesperson said.

Jeremy King, principal lawyer and head of police misconduct at Robinson Gill, said he was "never surprised" to hear of misconduct or sexual harassment of junior women officers in Victoria Police.

But he warned the SOFVU "will never be able to properly address this because at the end of the day it's still police investigating their own".....

That another mighty white cop gone.

San Jose Police Department fire officer over 'disgusting' racial text messages.

But he'll likely head over the other side of the country where that mighty white sort of stuff is tolerated. :-(

The hypocrisy of law enforcement
He was initially sentenced to 60 hours of unpaid work and fined £1,384.
Nice. I've always said, the best way to stop is to hit where it hurts - in the wallet. It's even more effective today.
The Metropolitan Police, supported by the club, approached the UK Football Policing Unit to seek an appeal against the sentence and, as a direct result, the court issued the supporter with a three-year football banning order," Tottenham said in a statement on Wednesday.
Not nice. What a waste of taxpayer funds.
The club's response:
We thank the police for their cooperation on the matter. We should like to reiterate that the club does not tolerate discrimination of any kind and will always seek for the strongest possible action to be taken against those found responsible.
Hypocrites.

The best place in the world for these crooked pair to be as the last 1 loses his appeal.

Crooked cop Glen McNamara to die in jail after losing desperate appeal.

It looks like Queensland coppers really dropped the ball in this case that resulted in the deaths of 2 off their own and a neighbour.

Emails reveal Queensland police had detailed information about Nathaniel Train almost a year before Wieambilla attack.

Sent to Queensland Police at 11:57am on December 20, 2021, this critical email from Goondiwindi council officer Andrew Leach revealed an unstable teacher had just committed several offences before going on the run in the state carrying weapons.

Even the name of a potential witness who could confirm the offender's disturbed state of mind and firearms possession was provided.

“Hope this helps,’’ Mr Leach signed off before hitting send on the email to a local police officer.

Nearly 12 months later, Train was able to join his brother Gareth and ex-wife Stacey in a shooting spree killing constables Rachel McCrow and Matthew Arnold and neighbour Alan Dare at Wieambilla on the Western Downs.....
Now why were the warnings ignored need to be answered.

This scumbag at least saved taxpayers many $'s when he realised that his gig was up.

Tasmanian former police officer Paul Reynolds used positions of authority to abuse children for three decades, interim report finds.

Though he missed out on the fun time that he would've experienced in jail.

We've all heard of or know someone who has written to hardened crims in jail expressing their love, but in the U.S. they take it a step further.

30 prison guards had sex with inmates in Kentucky prison.

Now you have to ask if they're running brothels and drug dens in these prisons.
