Two years ago, I posted about a Florida deputy who was was recently caught planting drugs on drivers during traffic stops. He had apparently been doing it for years, and more than 100 people were charged based upon the drugs he ‘found’ in their cars. The pattern was the same- pull the car over on some pretext, claim that he could smell marijuana, and then meth would be found. Mysteriously, his camera would not be turned on until AFTER the drugs were found. In one case, he did leave the camera on, and it caught the drugs in his hand right before he planted them.
He was just convicted on 19 counts including racketeering, official misconduct, fabricating evidence, perjury, false imprisonment and possession of controlled substances and drug paraphernalia.
Before anyone says that this is because of “racist cops” the article from the Democrat shows 36 people who were victims of his scheme, and only four of them were black. Not racism, just an officer trying to make a name for himself.
