Folks some more SC*M in Law Enforcement. Central Florida is loaded with bad cops. My neighbor OPD Officer David Hayward got together with his crooked cop buddies and put together a Domestic Violence to our home in Dr. Phillips. Folks 8 cops plus showed up at our home for 4 hours. Cops even came back to our home 3 times after this? This was scare tactics because cops wanted my wife and I to shut our mouth about Hayward who is a crooked cops along with others.. While we had complaints files 3 Orange County Deputies attacked us at WALT DISNEY WORLD.. Disney claims they could not find any surveillance video's to show what happen?? LIARS!! Folks Corruption runs wide and deep in FLORIDA!! Central Florida is the worst area thanks to companies Like WALT DISNEY WORLD !! Look who the Sheriff is.. Oh folks Internal Affairs at both Police Department promote crime by filing false police reports and memo's.. Call Officer Mike Favorit and Jose Velez at OPD Internal Affairs and ask them if they know of any crooked cops?? Folks to show you how crooked cops are they tried to make me look like a wife beater,murderer,violent person and more. The real criminals are the cops folks.. Lets hope the Feds clean house in Florida..

too bad a few give the good a bad name. Its a hard job and to become one you have to go away to school for 6 weeks and pass many many tests. its not easy to become a correctional officer. There are a lot of dangers because of severe shortages in staffing because of budgets. I am the proud wife of a correctional officer that just happens to be a really good guy. The prisioners where he works respects him. He had been hurt in breaking up a fight. The good ones deserve our respect.

The only help you.ll ever get is is if you can find a lawyer that s got balls. I got a ticket from a n under cover cop , that was in a wrong lane,,in bacl of a truck so I couldn,t see him, he was in a turn lane , I was exiting right , he came from behind the truck and almost got hit., he didn,t even have enough guts to pull me over hisself , he called a friend to do it. Hah!!! try to press charges, thats a joke. as you well know.Sorry I see no sense in going after any one with athority here or any where else in this county.

i feel u. my son who has bi polar disorder was in the walker county jail and was beaten to the point of a broken arm by jail staff correction officers and wa not given the proper medical treatment until a few days later when they all of a sudden decided to go on and ship him to jackson, ga. where he had to have pins placed in his arm. trust me i am going to fight this kind of treatment...not only for my son, but for all of the injustice that goes on in all correctional facilities. by the way, this is located in nw georgia. i may be behind the scenes, but rest assured I'M ON IT!!! I WON'T REST UNTIL JUSTICE AND REFORM IS BROUGHT te TO THE OPEN PUBLIC. by the way contact your state representatives and lets demand that our 5th ammendment rights are protected.

I need to find a way to complain about the treatment that these so-called corrections officers give to us. I went to jail the night before last and the cop was a complete jerk. I jusst had been in an accident and I am completely legal(i.e.got insurance,valid liscense,ect.); but he swore that I was intoxicated and took me to jail. Upon arriving to jail; they slammed my face up against the cold concrete wall twice, grabbed me, threw me on the ground and called me every disgraceful name possible. I felt as if I were being raped. I have about 8 different bruises on my body. And as I was pushed into the door of the cell I was going to be in with the other girls; the CO told the girls to make sure they whoop my ass real good. Of course, the girls told me and we all got along just fine. But no officer should ever do that.I want justice. Oh, and when I left the next day, they conviently did not give me at least half of my shit back.

The good ones are powerless to do anything. Right here in Lake county the SO is a complete disaster. They have no leadership. The Sheriff (Jail experience only) has no law enforcement leadership ability and he put's a 24/7 drunk womanizer like Peyton Grinnell in number two spot. Grinnel jumped from sargent to chief deputy in one big leap because he put his nose in the right place. Sheriff Borders likes to hire 19 year old boys out of his private stock law enforcement academy. These kids like borders with no experience run the county in packs of 5-7 and don't have a clue what a criminal law violation consists of or how to make a case. I hope and pray everyday these untrained will not suffer violence like what happened to Koester and them. They think the power bestowed upon them will protect them. The hard core criminals don't care, they will hurt anyone who gets in their way. It will take more than just the good cops we have in central Florida to curb the ongoing corruption and sexual sickness right under our noses, but someday it will be cured!

Talk about crooked cops in central Florida apparently they are everywhere. These attached links are stories from last month about the Green Isle Boys Rank in Groveland, south Lake county. The place has been a hell hole fou teenage boys since 1989, rapes, sex abuse, boys mistreated and fed bad food. Now come to find out Lake Sheriff Gary Borders has been running this place since it opened. He claimed last month he was investigating it. Investigating his own self I guess. Another coverup in progress like many time before. Soon they will reopen with more fresh victims. What a shame more boys have to suffer at the hands of these sicko's. Check out the following stories. No follow up's provided, just dead end stories.

The information that might help you is a CCRBF. I'ts called a "civilain complaint reveiw board form". Look it up.Any jail guard who uses their power the wrong way, should be prosecuted to the fullest. There where 2 correctional officers just fired in fl for abusing inmates. They should get the penalty for it. They should be stripped of all benefits ,retirement,anuity.everything. losing their homes also.

I have a son that has 3 brain operations when he was 17 years old had an
accident, he is 42 now, he fell in the the dirty system and was charged for
petty and pills and was giving 30years to do although he never killed no one, rape no one but the judge was the worst ever here in dade county Fl. the he is now in Lake C.I. where the correction officers are abusing him constantly, leave him without food for three days do not want to give his property back, etc. he just wrote me a letter that was very sad, he also said that was the worst prison ever and the laziest officers, and the food taste like dirt, this is so wrong. These prisoners are humans and are our family yes they make mistakes but government instead of spending the money to punish them this way they should consider on rehabilitating those humans instead they are making them worst than how they came in. But of course the killers and rapists only do 5 to10 years or maybe let free but for stupid things they get xxxxx amount of years who understands this system of 'course we are the ones supporting these corrupted officers no one has the time to do anything about it. I think if we all write letters to the Governor or get together with a solution to this abuse lets HELP each other to help our family.
Also if you read on Henrry Farrell arrested 190 times in Boca Raton Fl.
you will see how the system works for others.
