Busy, busy. A crooked FBI agent is wreaking havoc with drug cases in DC, rip-off cops get busted in Chicago and Philly, an Alabama cop gets nailed for making a woman cook meth for him, and more. Let's get to it:
In Washington, DC, a federal judge threw out 13 more tainted drug cases last Friday. US District Judge Reggie Walton dismissed 13 criminal indictments against defendants in major drug cases as a scandal around FBI agent Matthew Lowry, 33, continues to unravel. Lowry is accused of tampering with drugs, guns, and other evidence seized in the cases, but he has not yet been charged with any criminal offenses. A day earlier, prosecutors dropped charges against 10 other defendants, some of whom had been serving lengthy prison sentences.
This Is What Happens When “Good Cops” Call Out Corruption In Their Departments
Carroll County, KY — In another case in point example of why the proverbial “Good Cop” is such a rarity, a Sheriff’s deputy in Kentucky has been fired after blowing the whistle on his department.
Deputy JT Shaw had evidence that the Sheriff, Jamie Kinman, had planted drugs in another deputy’s car, so he blew the whistle and reported it to the state police.
Kinman was indicted last week on the charges of tampering with evidence and official misconduct. Shaw testified against him in front of the grand jury.
The original allegations came back in August and shortly after coming out against Kinman, Shaw was fired.
