Kentucky now has the reputation of being the most corrupt state and has the highest attorney suicide rate in the nation. These things are verifiable. High-level professional relationships are falling apart internally. People in high places are going to the Feds, telling on each other, to beat the others to the punch. Some of these cool fools who THINK they are running the show would be surprised to know what their wives are really up to, with multiple guys, simultaneously. Yes, there are pictures. These big fish in the small pond are owned by something bigger than they could ever imagine, and the lodge won’t protect them. Condensed evil ready to be served to cool fool players, under the table, of course…

Good thing it wasn't a ky . constable who did all that You people would want to hang him, that's what all that so-called training gets you, an excuse to get by with anything. The state boys, the sheriffs asses, the dept. Of justice, the county attorney s and the county judges, all are a bunch of clowns and losers!

There are more involved in this child molestation ring then just cops. The special prosecutor Tom Wine is doing all he can to keep this quiet. Even the Judge demonstrated his desire to cover up and keep this disgusting scandal hushed up when he rubber stamped a UNSECURED 10k bond to release these perverts(and agreed with the defense and the prosecuting attorneys to gag all proceedings). That was his rubber stamp of approval for child rape by cops or OTHER political figures. A teacher, coach, minister, EMT worker any one else besides cops or judges that had abused their position to molest kids and boom media all over it and a no tolerance automatic 100k up bond. Double standards for police, judges, special prosecutors it seems. Food for thought. The 1st 2 special prosecutors appointed on this case ran like scalded dogs and resigned(something scared the hell out of them). 3rd pick was a charm. KSP is extremely pleased with Tom Wine's selection. Meaning they and the judges can work with him and this will all be covered up nicely.

It is a cover-up and the Meade County Messenger is also guilty of not even trying to report on this!!! What a pathetic rag. What kind of newspaper wouldn't do all they can to get to the bottom of this - instead they hide anything they report now in the back pages. "News" my ass!

This is a huge problem for the Kentucky State Police as well as the rest of us.
As recent as two weeks ago, this same thing happened again in Western Kentucky…..another KSP officer involved romantically with a minor.
When is KSP going to realize that they have a statewide problem and fix this?
Doesn't the Kentucky State Police teach its officers that it isn't okay to touch women (or men) who are under the age of 18?
If so, then why don't the officers listen and adhere to policy? If they are trained, then clearly we have either a comprehension problem or we have a disciplinary problem…..either one of which must be fixed immediately because these men and women (KSP Officers) are supposed to be ensuring the safety and good conduct of the public.
If they DON'T teach the officers that it's not okay to touch people who are underage then we have another problem……a TRAINING deficiency on behalf of the State of Kentucky.
So, which is it and why aren't there investigative reporters digging into this and uncovering the real problem?
If it happens once, I would say that it is an individual problem, but when two officers have been fired and then investigated and then the very next year it happens again and ANOTHER OFFICER (D. Crawford) is being investigated for the same thing, then I would say that it is a systematic problem, not an individual one.
Why isn't the KSP acknowledging the bigger problem?

How many other cases have already happened and then been covered up?

I see where another of your so-called trained officers was arrested for shoplifting. How long will it take for those clowns and losers at the DOJ realize this crap goes on all the time. Oh thats right they are the ones who in charge of the training. Will they write a over 100 pg. report on theirpeople , hell no they won't. The spokesman for the dept. had the Gaul to say that these incidents were extremely rare. What an idiot! What in the holy hell are they training these idiots to do? What a bunch of clowns and losers!

They have blacked their own eye. Nobody even cares so they just gonna get away with it. Its not fair at all. Shouldve never even have made it an issue if they wasnt gonna do anything. Crooked aSS government. Setting the bar high. All about the prestige of being a trooper. On the other side that curtain.

Well if anyone personally knows the not so innocent girl, Devan Harris, you would know she loves attention and she's a whore. Todd Matti picked her up 2 Halloween's ago and she was dressed slutty wearing a short skirt. She would go around bragging about sleeping with all these cops. They gave her the attention she wanted. She told them her age. They thought they would never get caught. Her mom, Kim Harris, is a drug addict. Anything she can get her hands on is her drug of choice. It's such a shame.

Stupidity speaks pretty loudly. If you actually knew what the hell you were talking about you'd know none of the officers were employed by Butch. Get the facts before opening your mouth.

Unbelievable. I hope nothing ever happens to your retarded kids. I unfortunately have the displeasure of working at the same job as one of these pigs- Stratford Young- and he is a narcissistic sociopath. Funny though, he probably won't be there much longer, he has a trial coming up. His wife seemed barely able to work with him because he can't seem to be appropriate around other women. He has a young, school-aged daughter. It's pathetic

Sophisticated and well-coordinated pedo ring that was swept under the proverbial rug that involved politicians. Senator John DeCamp of Nebraska worked the case but it got shut down because of the people involved with the crimes. It is not some crazy conspiracy theory. The system protects certain high-level bad people everywhere but always ready to throw the book at commoners as quickly as possible to fill up “them der” jails. The high-level people who have protection are the ones who invest in prisons on the stock market. Yes, some people make money by filling up prisons just like some people make money from war. These people who make money from war are in clearly in upper levels of society and their children are not fighting in wars. Their children are attending elite universities (Transylvania & Center) that protect the wealthy and reward them with high grades and connections to good jobs with protection. It is a rigged game but these hypocritical who try to hide behind JEEZ-US will be punished to the fullest extent in the next world. When you create misery and make money off others misery eternal damnation is guaranteed. This has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with natural law.

When will they have the fake trial where they get off on a manufactured technicality? We all know the reality: Cops sharing a minor. The minor became part of a deal. How did the young girl end sleeping with the police? This is known too, right mommy? Any common person would have been in prison months ago by simply being accused of what we know they did.

Have fun pretending the law is applies equally to everyone. Wonder how it will work out for these criminals with authority once they meet god?

I can hear them now:“I’m sorry Jeez-us for having sex with minor as policemen many times.”” Will you forgive me?” LOL! LOL! LOL! Sick souls waiting for to be burnt to a crisp forever, hypocrite hogs. This is as real as it gets.

It don't matter . The pigs molested a.kid . No excuses . They deserve to be sexually emasculated They should receive 10 times the punishment what a civilian normally ends up with . A cop got away with killing an unarmed girl recently in Boone Co. Something has got to be done about these scum of the earth .
And this truth-hurts sounds like a baby raper !!!!!
