A drug court probation officer parties down with one of his clients, a Georgia cop goes to prison for ripping off a drug dealer, and so does a Philadelphia cop. Keep an eye on Philly. The stench is really rising there.

In Philadelphia, a former Philadelphia narcotics officer pleaded guilty Monday to attempted robbery and firearms charges for stealing $15,000 from a Southwest Philly drug dealer after planting cocaine in his car. Jeffrey Walker, a 24-year veteran of the department, also agreed to testify against his former colleagues in a widening federal probe of corruption in the dope squad, and his lawyer said his crimes paled in comparison with those of other implicated officers.

In Atlanta, a former Clayton County police officer was sentenced last Friday to 10 years in federal prison for conspiring with a drug dealer to do a fake traffic stop on a car so they could steal the cocaine inside. Dwayne Penn copped to one count of conspiracy to distribute over five kilograms of cocaine.

In Springfield, Illinois, the former head probation officer for the Adams County drug court was sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail and 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to turning his home into a “drug house.” John Grotts was arrested in April 2012 after a search of his home turned up meth and a female drug court probationer, who was also arrested.

    You know the evidence has got to be very compelling and indisputable for these cops to plead guilty. Normally they get away with things like this even with evidence that’s irrefutable because the district attorney’s don’t press charges and neither does a grand jury. It’s ultimately the fault of the DA’s and grand jury’s for creating and sustaining the current culture of LEO’s being above the law and doing whatever they want.

    Cops are not learning. They still believe they are unaccounantable. The tide is turning. Americans are winning the battle against bad cops.
