Serial Killer, Molesting Kids, Selling Drugs: 10 Things Cops Got Caught Doing This Month

Serial Killer, Molesting Kids, Selling Drugs: 10 Things Cops Got Caught Doing This Month

“By demonizing the police,” right-wing commentator Tomi Lahren screeched this week while scolding celebrities for raising awareness about police violence, “you’re putting the communities you claim to care about at risk because it’s our officers who protect those communities and all communities.”

As it turns out, cops are putting communities at risks all by themselves. Here are ten instances just from the last few weeks that show cops are earning their bad reputations:

1. A New Jersey police officer was arrested Friday amid charges of selling narcotics out of his police car. While the entire premise of the drug war and prohibition is highly questionable, so is a sworn officer of “the law” directly breaking it. This is not an uncommon occurrence, as officers around the country have made a habit of dealing substances they throw people behind bars for possessing or selling.

2. Late last week, an LAPD officer was arrested on suspicion of three counts of murder and three counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and drunk driving causing injury after he drove drunk and caused a fiery crash that killed an entire family. This, too, is a pattern among officers, and while this particular officer was fired, some are allowed to return to their jobs despite flagrantly endangering the public.

Teacher Accused of Assaulting an 11-Year-Old Who Didn’t Stand for Pledge

Teacher Accused of Assaulting an 11-Year-Old Who Didn’t Stand for Pledge

A middle school student at East Middle School in Farmington Hills claimed this week that a teacher assaulted him for sitting during the pledge of allegiance. Following the incident, during which he says a teacher “snatched” him from his seat, his father is going to bat for his son, asserting his civil rights and freedom to opt out of the nationalistic ritual.

According to Brian Chaney, his eleven-year-old son Stone “was in homeroom class the first week of school when a teacher snatched him out of his seat and forced him to stand for the pledge,” Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ reported this week.

Stone started sitting out the pledge in second grade after his father explained to him he had the right to not participate. Stone says he only pledges allegiance to God and his family, not the flag, and his father says it hasn’t been a problem until now.

“For him to be violently snatched out of his chair by a lady and order him to stand and for her to just glare at him, it’s wrong, it’s a violation of civil rights,” Brian said.

Stone says other students simply snickered at him, so after the incident, he put his head down in class. He also says another teacher reprimanded him for sitting out the pledge that same week, demanding written permission for refraining.
