The description of the crime I am about to give is disturbing, but I think that it is needed, so that we all can understand the nature of the evil that we are looking at here.

A police officer in Bartow, Florida has been arrested after he went to a party and had four girls naked in his home in Lake Wales: two were 18 years old, one was 17, and the last was 16 years old. All were nude, all of them were high school students, and he gave them alcohol and marijuana before he directed the 17 year old to perform a sex act upon one of the 18 year olds. He had sex with all four girls, and even choked some of them.

He compounded this by recording the entire thing before showing the recording to his police officer coworkers. I guess he felt that the blue wall of silence was strong enough that his fellow gang members in blue would support him. At least one of them was brave enough to come forward, and for that I recognize that there is at least one cop with a conscience in the Bartow police department. As a result the police chief turned this over to the Polk County sheriff’s office, and Grady Judd himself made the arrest announcement. Judd, who occasionally does the right thing and never misses a chance to look tough on camera, then ran with it.

I know from personal experience that Bartow cops doing the right thing isn’t always the case, since one of them was part of a scheme to get me in some serious hot water a few years ago. That failed for two reasons:

What is most revealing about this, is that the cop thought that he would be safe in telling other cops about molesting kids, and that they would be OK with it. It makes one wonder what the police culture looks like, and how many crimes cops ARE cool with covering up.

Still, in this case, the police who decided to do the right thing are to be commended.

How many examples do people need? Apparently that number is infinite. People simply can’t get it through their heads that this story, and others similar, is not an aberration, but the norm in cop land. Get rid of qualified immunity and most of this criminal behavior goes away. Cops are like kids in a candy store with a free pass, they’re not going to pass up the candy when there’s no repercussions for taking the candy.

I think this is merely a fractal of the rest of our world.
Look at what’s been revealed about The 3 letter federal agencies in the last few years? OMFG… they are not at all what we’ve been led to believe, is the politest most succinct way I can express it.
Look at our view of history, how warped it is – CIA admitted it killed Kennedy this year, after denying, lying, obfuscating, and JAILING people for suggesting otherwise, for the last 60 years. Talk about inverting…
There’s a litany of examples. I can’t type them all, and shouldn’t need to for this audience.
So, a cop was caught finally, ONE cop had enough of a conscience to say something, and low and behold, we’re all shocked to learn that the curtain has been pulled back and the tinfoil-hat crowd was right all along.
How many times in life does this happen to you before you start to question things? Serious question. I grew up thinking the FedGov was benevolent. I grew up thinking all cops were good. I grew up thinking our military was the bestest evvvaaarrrrr!!!!
All of these things I grew up believing are not true. In fact, what I believed was inverted from the truth (on purpose, but I digress). After a lifetime of this treatment, I no longer accept what I’m told at face value.

ZOMFG, a dirty cop was hidden from the light of day by… other dirty cops?
Really? You’re really shocked by that revelation?

I’m more shocked one of the other cops finally said something!
The thin blue line bullshit’s been protecting them for decades! Body cams started catching them planting drugs all the time, so now they conveniently forget to turn it on when they’re about the commit a crime. THIS IS PREMEDITATED. You exit your cruiser w/o that camera running you’re fired, how’s that fit ya?

The Praetorian guard is not on our side. People really need to grok that. The ignorance of the masses is staggering… What’s worse, is they’re mal-educated. They’re told they’re smart when they’re not. Told they are educated, when they are ignorant. They’re told cops are there to protect them, when they are not. Then they run around thinking they’re smarter and better educated than everyone else, despite the opposite being true.

Most people truly do not understand the volume of dead bodies we’re going to have to deal with in the near future. Mountains. Daegle was right.

    “Most people truly do not understand the volume of dead bodies we’re going to have to deal with in the near future.”

    As I understand, getting rid of 6 million bodies isn’t really that tough. One or two cremation ovens, just a few years of operation, and that mountain of dead bodies will conveniently disappear. Just saying.

      Big Ruckus D · June 19, 2024 at 8:25 pm

      Heh, nicely played. If only the wholesale disposal of corpses was as easy as the tribe has (tried to) lead us to believe. Dead bodies are nasty, stinking, oozing disease ridden things that require prompt and effective disposal. Incinerating them sounds great until you factor in the time and energy needed to run them at that scale.

      Oh, and a hard learned lesson to the pig here: it’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. Gotta be a fed before you can fuck minors on video and brag about it to your colleagues with impunity.

I worked as a civilian in a major Southern Sheriff’s Department in the 80s. The old Sheriff lost the election and the new Sheriff wanted to replace us with cronies but was told we’d all been hired away from the Feds and training new people how to search and read fingerprint cards( the days before everything was computerised) would be expensive.

It was rumored that for a contribution of a mere $3500 you could be appointed Deputy or Special Deputy and get a gun and a badge. The Feds got onto the schemes his Administration had going and he committed suicide and several of his cronies went to jail.

Copland has always been corrupt.

Jonathan · June 19, 2024 at 11:09 am

i wonder if anything will happen to the cop who reported him, officially or unofficially?
I’ve heard of lots of stories of cops who stood against bad behavior being punished and harassed.

dave in pa. · June 19, 2024 at 12:55 pm

I grew up in philly back in the 1960’s when Rizzo was running things- the cops.
trust me, no kid in that town/city had any love for the cops. unless your dad was a cop.
those kids got away with everything. anyone one else. not really. they where a night stick/blackjack happy bunch who got away with beating the shit out of anyone they wanted too.
and for setting people up ? they where masters at that shit.
one reason why so many guys from philly joined the military was to get away from that shithole. and getting a carry permit ? yeah. right. you had to know someone and pay bigtime
to get one. anyone with any brains left that place years ago. if it wasn’t for the big schools there, it would be a ghost town by now. BTW. they keep the crime stats hidden very well.
can have daddy knowing the chance of his kids getting raped or robbed at 80% or better in the first year there. and that after they pay 40 grand and up per year there ?
used to be, that pennsy collage had the 4th largest police force in the state. and Temple has a shitload of cops as well. doesn’t help all that much really.

    The use of capital letters is the difference between “I helped my uncle Jack off his horse” and “I helped my uncle jack off his horse.”

I have been saying for quite a while now that we need to go back to something more resembling, if not the actual, colonial model that the founders gave us. Have a single elected sheriff that can deputize from the population on an as needed, and temporary, basis. I believe the founders were opposed to standing law enforcement, which is codified in their stance against standing armies, as at the time, the military was the govt. law enforcement; we didn’t have standing “police” until the late 19th century. I also think you can make a 4th-A case against police. The amendment states (to the effect, not exact quote) that you shall be secure against siezure (arrest) unless a warrant has been issued that is based upon sworn statement before a grand jury. Back in colonial times, if you believed you were wronged by someone (crime committed) you could make your case before a local grand jury, and if they agreed and issued a warrant, the sheriff (and his temporary deputies =, i.e. men from the community) could apprehend the person and a trial be held or they could resist and likely get killed in the process. What the amendment doesn’t say is that unless a State agent ‘thinks’ that you have committed a crime.

Another thing is that the State was rarely involved in any sort of prosecution, and even then it was pretty much limited to high profile crimes like major bank or train robberies. The current system of the State versus YOU didn’t exist and it shouldn’t exist today.

Mr. Blow said (above): “ZOMFG, a dirty cop was hidden from the light of day by… other dirty cops?
Really? You’re really shocked by that revelation?”

I’m reluctant to say “all cops are dirty” but enough are that is the way to vote, and much too often, “not dirty” does not mean “uncorrupted” or “not incompetent;” and that goes all the way from the local beat cop up to the vaunted fed dot gov agencies.

The question remains, as it has for, well, forever: Who watches the Watchmen? And when discovered, how is problem correction implemented?

Officer was prosecuted because he didn’t follow procedure, he was supposed to bring everyone in on an airplane. Made his coworkers look shabby, and didn’t even invite them.

I’ve been watching the Karen Read trial in MA, which is a great example of police corruption and double standards. Boston Cop and his gf are drinking at a suburban bar with some townie cops, a state trooper and 1-2 feds. At closing, the party continues at a townie cop’s house, but the Boston cop’s GF is a college prof, and calls it a night, drops him off. The Boston cop is found dead on the townie cop’s lawn, frozen to death, covered in defensive lacerations.
Of course the townie cops say the GF ran him over and the stiff was never in the house. But the homeowner mysteriously gives away his german shepherd with a history of biting people, and rips up a new hardwood floor to replace it and sells the house. A state trooper finds broken taillight pieces in the yard AFTER seizing the gf’s car and after CSI found no pieces and the camera footage of her car in the impound yard mysteriously disappears for the first 42 minutes it is in the yard, and the state trooper ‘accidentally’ mislogs the arrival time of the car which for some reason took 4 hours to travel about 25 minutes away,
Oh, the homeowner’s wife asked google “How long to die in cold” about in the middle of the night for some reason and the reporter who first uncovered this spent 60 days in jail for ‘intimidating a witness’ after asking one of the people in the house what happened.
The US attorney is investigating the prosecutor’s office AND the officers involved, over their handling of this.

There you go. You can identify the better cops because they’re prosecuting their wildly-criminal coworkers. But none of them obey the Bill of Rights, you cannot obey the Bill of Rights as a LEO and stay employed. Constitutionally they’re all standing on air like Wile E. Coyote.
