Florida’s Corrupt Police Departments
A powerful public employees’ union, thousands of corrupt government bureaucrats who couldn’t get fired if they wanted to — you’d expect conservatives to jump on this story like flies on shit.
Florida’s police departments have a virtually non-existent disciplinary system for dealing with law-breaking officers.
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune goes into more detail.
One Florida cop has been arrested three times, fired five times and has been investigated forty times by Internal Affairs. A prison guard has been investigated repeatedly for forcing himself on prisoners, and he was arrested on suspicion of raping two teenage girls. Another cop has had numerous violent incidents at his precinct office, and was seen beating up his girlfriend at a crowded nightclub. Another one denied having sex with a 14-year-old girl but couldn’t explain why her DNA was on one of his sex toys.
All four of the above-mentioned officers still have their jobs. And Florida has thousands of others just like them. Over and over, they commit the kinds of crimes that would get a long prison sentence for most people. And yet here they are, still “serving” the public.
Again, why aren’t conservatives outraged by this corrupt union full of crooked bureaucrats? (Don’t worry, it was a rhetorical question.)
