Cop Who Filmed Himself Raping Women & Children On Duty, Found Dead in His Cell

Ste. Genevieve County, MO — On Saturday morning, Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Major Jason Schott announced Marty L. Rainey, a former Gasconade County law enforcement officer facing state and federal charges involving a series of assaults on women and children, was found dead in his cell.

The sheriff’s office is remaining tight-lipped on the details for now, only saying that “At this point, it appears to be a suicide, but the investigation is ongoing.”

St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:

Asked if Rainey had been on suicide watch, Schott declined to answer, citing the ongoing investigation and saying he would not answer any specific questions. He said that video from jail cameras was being downloaded and staff was being interviewed.

For years, this predator used his badge and gun to inflict his sick desires on countless victims.

In August 2014, a co-worker discovered a thumb drive belonging to Rainey that contained photos and videos of his victims. Police then raided his home seizing multiple computers, cameras, flash drives, and other storage devices.

According to the court records, Rainey used his authority to sexually abuse women and children. He was indicted on multiple counts of felony deprivation of rights on the color of law for crimes involving “acts of aggravated sexual abuse” against four women and the enticement of a minor to engage in prostitution.

This ‘hero cop’ was also charged with multiple sexual assault counts and acceding to corruption by a public servant as well as statutory rape and use of a child in a sexual performance.

As if the horrific abuse of authority on women and children wasn’t bad enough, Rainey also went after the mentally ill. In promising to help a mentally ill woman who’d been the victim of a crime, Rainey began to stalk her and send her sexual pictures. He then told the mother if she wanted help solving her crime, she’d have to force her young daughter to strip for nude photos.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rainey wasn’t alone in his abusive endeavors.

Rainey’s friend, Jonathan Pohlmann, 47, pleaded guilty Monday to a federal charge of conspiracy to violate civil rights. Although his plea agreement was sealed, he was accused of conspiring with Rainey to “injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate” women with whom Rainey came in contact while on duty. The acts “resulted in bodily injury,” charging documents say.

One need only perform a simple Google search to see the atrocities carried out by this nation’s public servants. On a daily basis, police officers make the digital blotter with stories of sexual assault, molestation, child porn, and worse.

Not only are police involved in the illegal version of rape, but they are not afraid to legally rape individuals in search of a plant. Last year, the Free Thought Project reported on the horrific case of Charnesia Corley, who had her vagina penetrated by police in a public parking lot because they smelled weed.

It is no wonder that if this group of people can consciously carry out forced vaginal rape in search of a plant, that they are far more likely to commit sexual assault than the average American.

The rates of sexual assault and domestic battery within the ranks of police officers are almost double that of the average citizen, according to a study conducted by Bowling Green State University.

The Free Thought Project covered 40 cops involved in different incidents from child rape to sexual abuse in just a 30-day period.

This prison food contractor is funding efforts to keep marijuana illegal

Keep prisons full by keeping nonviolent offenses illegal

Most Americans support legalizing marijuana, but there are some noteworthy exceptions.

I wrote last month about how some beer makers are lobbying to keep weed illegal because they believe it will be a competitor and lower their profits. If anyone could understand the dangers of prohibition, you’d think it’d be the alcohol industry, but somehow they’ve managed to combine crony capitalism and an appalling ignorance of history in one terrible package.

Now it seems those beer lobbyists will find strange bedfellows in the prison industry, as a prison food contractor in Arizona is spending big bucks to stop marijuana legalization—and thus keep the prisons full of profitably hungry people. RT.com reports:

A company that makes money selling food to prisons is helping to bankroll the effort to defeat marijuana legalization, a review of new campaign finance records shows.

Services Group of America, whose subsidiary Food Services of America prepares meals for correctional facilities, gave $80,000 late last month to a campaign committee opposing the legal cannabis measure on Arizona’s November ballot.

This isn’t just politics, and it’s worse than mere self-serving crony capitalism like beer makers’ support for prohibition. No, this is actively campaigning to keep nonviolent people locked up, ruining their lives, just to make a buck.

That goes beyond differences of opinion about the drug war. It’s morally grotesque.

Now more than ever, Arizona should vote YES on Prop. 205.

Amy Goodman Is Facing Jail Time for Reporting on the Dakota Access Pipeline. That Should Scare Us All.

“The charges against Goodman are a clear attack on journalism and freedom of the press.”

“Goodman had the audacity to commit this journalism on September 3, when she was in North Dakota covering what she calls “the standoff at Standing Rock”: the months-long protests by thousands of Native Americans against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The $3.8 billion oil pipeline is slated to carry barrel after barrel of Bakken crude through sacred sites and burial grounds of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, and tribe members fear it could pollute the Missouri River, the source not only of their water but of millions of others’, should the pipe ever rupture. Their protests, which began in April and ballooned through the summer months, represent the largest mobilization of Native American activists in more than 40 years—and one of the most vital campaigns for environmental justice in perhaps as long.”
