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.

Innocent Man Raided, Tased, Beaten & Shot – Corrupt SWAT Team Lied to Get a Warrant

law enforcement immune to consequences

Houston, TX — A completely innocent man was shot, tasered, brutally beaten, and had stun grenades thrown at him by vicious and incompetent SWAT officers. Then, those same officers tried to cover up their mistake by charging the victim, Chad Chadwick, with six criminal offenses including felony assault on a police officer.

This incident happened in 2011, but it has taken Chadwick three years and his entire life savings, to finally beat the charges that he was falsely accused of. Last month, a jury found Chad Chadwick not guilty of interfering with police. With tears in their eyes members of the jury offered the exonerated defendant comforting hugs, according to My Fox Houston.

“They tried to make me a convict. It broke me financially, bankrupted me. I used my life savings, not to mention, I lost my kids,” said Chadwick.

Chadwick had been drinking and went to sleep in his bathtub on the night of September 27, 2011, when police were given a tip from a friend of Chadwick’s who said they were concerned with his emotional well-being. So naturally the police responded by mobilizing a heavily militarized SWAT team.

“They came in did what they did, figured out that they messed up and now they are doing everything they can to cover it up. They treated a normal American citizen like an animal. It’s not right,” Chadwick said in an interview with FOX 26. 

The SWAT team lied to the judge to get the warrant by telling the judge that Chadwick had hostages.

They told a judge I had hostages. They lied to a judge and told him I had hostages in my apartment and they needed to enter,” said Chadwick.

When SWAT broke down his door without identifying themselves, they launched a stun grenade into his bathroom, according to Chadwick.

“While I had my hands up naked in the shower they shot me with a 40 millimeter non-lethal round,” said Chadwick.

Another stun grenade was fired.

“I turned away, the explosion went off, I opened my eyes the lights are out and here comes a shield with four or five guys behind it. They pinned me against the wall and proceeded to beat the crap out of me,” said Chadwick.

 

That’s when SWAT officers shot Chadwick at point blank range with a taser in the back of his head.

“They claimed I drew down with a shampoo bottle and a body wash bottle,” said Chadwick.

Tased, shot and with multiple SWAT officers smashing him into a corner with a shield, a brutal beating ensued.

“They grabbed me by my one hand that was out of the shower and grabbed me by my testicles slammed me on my face on the floor and proceeded to beat me more,” said Chadwick.

Chadwick was then hauled off to Ft. Bend County Jail with a fractured nose, bruised ribs and what’s proven to be permanent hearing loss. He was kept in an isolation cell for two full days. Remember, Chadwick has never broken a law; he had committed no crime.

“Instead of apologizing to this man and asking let us see what we can do to help you to make you whole again, they concocted criminal charges against this man, one after another, after another,” said activist Quanell X, who believes the prosecution of Chadwick was designed to fend off civil liability.

The SWAT team that took Chadwick into custody and testified against him was comprised of officers from Missouri City, Sugar Land, Stafford and the Ft. Bend County Sheriff’s Department. To this date, none of them have faced any disciplinary action.

According to FOX 26, Ft. Bend County District Attorney John Healy declined to comment on camera, but did say he stands by his decision to prosecute Chadwick, despite the multiple no-bills and not guilty verdict. Asked how much the case cost taxpayers, Healy said “I wasn’t keeping a tally.”

Chadwick is now pursuing a civil suit against the police agencies involved and they will most assuredly know how much money that will cost the taxpayers.

Millions of Tax Dollars Spent to Defend Police Abuse – Your Money Squandered

Millions of Tax Dollars Regularly Spent to Defend Police Abuse

by Stirling Watts

Are you a tax paying resident in a large American metropolitan city?  Are you concerned about the accountability of the your hard earned tax dollars?

A recent Russia Today article revealed that in New York City alone over the last five years, nearly half a billion in tax dollars were used to pay settlements to plaintiffs in cases of civil rights violations against citizens – civil rights violations perpetrated by the police.  Yes, that’s right – legal settlements, payoffs, large sums of money paid from pubic taxpayer coffers to compensate for civil rights abuses wrongfully carried out by police officers.

Documents that were recently made available to the public by the New York City Law Department revealed that these payoffs totaled more than $428 million, and  were the result of more than 12,000 such civil rights cases that have been processed through the New York City court system from 2009 until now, October 2014.

Those are huge amounts of money for just one city to have paid out to compensate for abusive, illegal, actions carried out by paid professional police officers —- and we are talking about New York City alone.  Just imagine how much money is being squandered the very same way in other major metro areas of the United States.  If you’re an American, you know which cities I mean – the ones constantly in the news for police abuse.  Really, if you watch the non-mainstream news, you know that means that virtually all of our cities are guilty.

Let’s think about the basic moral aspects that drive this abuse of taxpayer dollars.  We’re talking about taxpayer dollars spent to defend countless unconstitutional actions carried out in supposed “good faith” by law enforcement agencies dealing with crimes which are, for the most part, completely victimless.

To begin with, how many cases of police abuse should we reasonably expect to hear about each year?  In an imperfect human world, we might expect that every law enforcement agency will experience at least a blip on the radar of individual problems with officer or agent misbehavior.  That’s just human nature.  But, shouldn’t the sum total number of abusive police actions reported every year amount to no more than a few isolated instances, caused by a tiny number of bad cops?

And when those inevitable cases of bad behavior do rear their ugly heads, shouldn’t we expect law enforcement agencies to implement immediate and appropriate correctional actions?  Why is it that following every deadly shooting by a police officer, regardless of the sequence of events that led to the incident, officers who have discharged their weapon killed someone are routinely put on paid administrative leave?  Isn’t something missing in the individual accountability and responsibility requirements expected of the average American law enforcement officer?

If that’s not a relevant issue, then how is it that just last year, New York City paid more than $96 million (yes, that’s right, $96 million!) in settlements to citizen plaintiffs whose civil rights were abused by NYC cops?  Even more amazing is that Mayor Bloomberg, at least according to the claims of the Russia Today article, regularly shrugs these numbers off as irrelevant.  As a taxpayer in New York City, would you also find these figures irrelevant?

A  bigger moral dilemma, and the “war on drugs”

This excessive abuse of taxpayer funds is only a part of an even bigger moral dilemma.  Is it morally sound public policy for police departments to pay off victims whose civil rights have been violated by police with massive amounts of money taken from the taxpayers – taxpayers who quite reasonably expect the responsible use of public funds?

On the other hand, when any citizen’s civil rights are violated as the result of irresponsible police behavior, are those citizens not rightfully due compensation for the wrongs done to them?  Of course they are, and who then is to pay for the wrongs committed by our public servants?

When anyone does wrong, is not the wrongdoer the final responsible party?  Why, then, is the responsibility laid on the taxpayers and not on the police officer?  It is simply because taxpayers are a convenient source of easy cash for large and powerful city operated organizations like police departments.  It is because we all know that the police department itself serves to isolate the officers within that police department, the officers who carry out these cowardly and irresponsible acts, from blame or guilt.

What might be done to begin to curb this massive financial fraud?   Change just might begin with ending the all too common unconstitutional practices of no knock raids, warrantless searches, reasonless traffic stops, unconstitutional checkpoints, and other many varieties of 4th amendment violations.  What is fueling that?

This alarming trend of police abuse and the constant daily violation of individual’s constitutional rights by police is fueled almost completely by a senseless “war on drugs”.

It’s time to stop that nonsense.
