    Cop plants meth during traffic stops on a regular basis

    Holy cow is this guy a scumbag. Should be in jail the rest of his life, no parole. I hope the law suits bankrupt Jackson county FL.

    A Florida cop planted meth on random drivers, police say. One lost custody of his daughter.

    That's absurdly ****ed up and the video from a link in the story is pretty damning. Stuff like that makes every other cop's job 10x harder than it needs to be and utterly destroys public trust.

    And people wonder why so many people don’t trust the police.

    This is not an isolated incident, planting of evidence has been a problem in certain sections of the police for a long time and some of it was done in an incredible scale.

    But don’t dare ask for greater police accountability though in terms of their things like this, use of lethal force, body cameras and police brutality, that is extremely anti-police...

    Why should the people of Jackson County, Florida be liable for anything?

    Yeah, there should be a sentence multiplier if you're a cop - like, 5x whatever time the judge gives you, if you commit the crime from behind the pretense of upholding the law. Hell, apply it to judges and politicians too, for that matter. People need to be able to trust the police. When that trust is broken, society is not far behind.

    They hired him, gave him authority and failed to enforce standards and policies (ie Body Camera usage) that would have caught this scumbag long ago. There failures caused pain and suffering to a large number of people. The county needs to be held accountable, so that it will ensure it hires better people, and ensures the jobs the people it hires do better.

    Without punishing the county, it can continue to hire scumbags that ruin peoples lives. The lawsuits will provide the required incentive to do better

    Agreed that this officer is pretty bad, and it will make the jobs of other officers that much more difficult. Those are the ones that will have to deal with the suspicion. We apparently have a slew of victims out there that also had their lives forever changed, that of course deserves the highest attention.

    However a "bankrupt Jackson county FL" is not the answer, what is the answer will come down to what they need to do in order to make this as right as they can by all these victims but they still have to deal with governance and services for Jackson county.

    As for this officer... I doubt there will be much leniency no matter what his defense is. He is looking at decades if not his entire life by the indictment count as it stands today before the investigation is all said and done.

    I guess the only reason would be if the county benefited from any property seizures that resulted
    from the fraudulent traffic stops. They might then have motive to turn a blind eye to questionable statistics.
