Cop Convicted of Making Child Porn While On Duty, Using Police Equipment

A former Florida police sergeant is facing up to 120 years in prison after he was found guilty of producing, possessing and accessing child pornography — all while he was on duty, using equipment provided by his department. Kyle A. Kirby, 37, was charged after an investigation into his patrol car computer in October 2015 revealed images showing young children involved in sex acts. The investigation concluded that Kirby had been using the computer to “download and store child pornography” since at least December 2014. A report from News4Jax noted: “According to court documents, FBI agents and other law enforcement officers searched Kirby’s residence as the result of an online child pornography investigation. That same morning, the Live Oak police chief authorized the agents to inspect and search the computer located inside Kirby’s patrol car. “A forensic examination of the patrol car computer used by Kirby revealed that it […] Read More

2016: Can’t Make This Up: Cop Caught Stealing Pot from Police Dept… on His Own Body Cam

by Matt Agorist Grants, NM — As the Free Thought Project pointed out many times before, police departments in America can legally discriminate against hiring individuals if their IQ is too high. Couple this with the fact that thieves aren’t always the sharpest tools in the toolbox, and you get the makings of a scenario like the one that unfolded in New Mexico last week. A Grant’s cop was caught on his own body cam stealing weed. Grants Police Department Sgt. Roshern C. McKinney, 33, was arrested last week after an investigation found that he’d stolen both money and marijuana from the police department. McKinney has since been charged with marijuana distribution, conspiracy, and felony embezzlement. State police also charged McKinney’s 23-year-old girlfriend Tanicka Gallegos-Gonzales, for drug distribution and conspiracy. Both were arrested in Albuquerque and booked into the Sandoval County Detention Center, according to KOB. Public Information Officer for the New Mexico State […] Read More

Disturbing Video Shows a Cop Brutally Beat a Child for Riding Her Bike, Charges HER with Assault

Tacoma, WA — On May 24, 2014, 15-year-old Monique Tillman and her brother were riding their bikes when they were stopped and this young girl brutally assaulted by Tacoma Police Officer Jared Williams. Tillman and her brother had done nothing wrong, and were merely targetted by this ‘public servant’ because they had the unfortunate luck to have crossed paths with him. As the duo travelled home, they cut through a mall parking lot, as they had done countless times before. However, this time, Officer Williams was in that parking lot, in his full Tacoma Police department uniform, yet off-duty, working as mall security. As the teens travelled through the lot, Williams began pursuit of these hardened criminals and accused them of trespassing. Knowing they’d done nothing wrong, Monique attempted to explain to the officer that they cut through the parking lot all the time on their way home. However, this tyrant was having nothing […] Read More

2016: Cop Sneaks Into Bed With 4-Year-Old Girl

Ontario, Canada — If you woke to find someone in your four-year-old daughter’s bedroom who refused to identify themselves to you or explain their presence in your house, what would you do? In the case of Cheryl Yurkowski — who lives in Ontario, Canada — you attempt to defend your child, your home, and yourself. Cheryl’s ordeal began after having an argument with her husband and his mother at a restaurant. Tired from the disagreement and wishing to avoid further conflict with the intoxicated man, she left separately to go home and go to bed. Not realizing his wife had already arrived at the home and was asleep, Cheryl’s husband began yelling on a phone call — but his raised voice concerned neighbors, who then summoned the Kawartha Lakes Police. Cheryl explained what happened next, from her perspective, in a self-made video and subsequent interview with Larken Rose: “I […] Read More

Police Fatally Shoot UNARMED Native American Woman Who Was Only Sitting In A Parked Car

It was right before midnight on January 28th, when a Tacoma, Washington police officer fatally shot Native American, Puyallup tribal member, Jacqueline Salyers. The Tacoma Police Department spokesperson Loretta Cool claims that police officers we conducting a search for one Kenneth Wright Jr. They tell us that he was wanted for outstanding warrants, and they emphasize that these included things like first degree-robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm and delivery of a controlled substance. But none of that had anything to do with Salyers. She was not who the police were looking for, and she had committed no crime. Still, police gunned her down and so far there is absolutely no one being held accountable. Cool states that two officers recognized Wright as the passenger of a parked vehicle. The officers then allegedly exited their vehicle and approached the parked car. “The driver (later identified as Jacqueline Salyers) stepped on the gas, and accelerated […] Read More

2016: F*ck The City of Cleveland For What is Doing to the Family of Tamir Rice

If killing a small child for holding a toy gun, failing to convict the police officer who shot said small child and refused to medically assist him afterwards wasn’t enough, forcing the family of the murdered child to pay for his ambulance ride and hospital fees appears to be the icing on the cake for Cleveland — now officially the worst city in America. The family of Tamir Rice, the young black boy shot to death by two Cleveland police officers in 2014, are to be sent a bill for $500 by for “advanced life support” and Rice’s ambulance ride after the city filed a creditor’s claim today at court. Reported Gawker: This afternoon in probate court, the city filed a creditor’s claim for $500, saying that Rice’s family still owes them for the ambulance and paramedics that tended to the 12-year-old’s body after he was shot by a police officer […] Read More

Mom Calls 911 for Mental Help With Her Son, Cops Show Up, Tase Him to Death While He’s Restrained

The parents maintain that the deputies were never in danger and that their son was not armed. Coweta County, GA—On November 20, sheriff deputies in Coweta County, Georgia were summoned to help subdue a man having a psychotic breakdown. They ended up tasing him to death. Chase Sherman, 32, his fiancée, and his parents, Kevin and Mary Ann Sherman, were returning from a vacation. During a layover at the Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta, Sherman started having hallucinations and acting agitated. According to his father, he “got nervous … about planes crashing, and he just didn’t feel comfortable on a plane…. He thought nobody recognized him. I said, ‘Chase, we’re fine. We’re going to get a car and drive home.’ He didn’t know where he was at.” They rented a car to drive the rest of the way to their home in Florida.  Sherman’s fiancée told his parents that he may […] Read More

State Law Makes It a Felony to Touch a Police Officer Even Off-Duty and Out of Uniform

In effect, the Oklahoma measure extends the cloak of ‘qualified immunity’ to cover every aspect of a law enforcement officer’s life. Two short-tempered men run into each other in a bar in Enid, Oklahoma. The combustible mixture of alcohol and ego produces the predictable reaction – a brief, stupid, and inconclusive fight in which neither side is seriously injured. When police officers arrive on the scene, onlookers expect that both parties to the altercation will be hauled away in handcuffs. However, after one of them produces a police credential, he is allowed to handcuff the other and place him under arrest for a felonious assault on an off-duty law enforcement officer. It doesn’t matter that the individual making the arrest might have been the same one who started the fight. This scenario is made entirely plausible by a newly enacted Oklahoma statute that makes any “assault” on an off-duty […] Read More

New FBI Report Debunks Mythical “War on Police”

Throughout the United States, Americans believe there is a “war on police.” A recent survey found 58% of Americans agree with this sentiment. A new, privately-funded billboard campaign hijacks the “Black Lives Matter” moniker to read “Blue Lives Matter,” highlighting powerful pushback from law enforcement sympathizers against activists. The FBI’s 2014 report, Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA), released this week, appears to support the notion that police officers are in danger and unduly targeted. The number of officers killed by individuals committing “felonious acts” jumped from 27 in 2013 to 51 last year, and police apologists are all but guaranteed to point to this increase as proof their concerns are justified. A deeper examination of the data, however, reveals that police are not only safe, but still running rampant in their liberal use of violence against the citizens they allegedly serve. In 2013, the FBI reported that 27 […] Read More
