This is so irresponsible. What the hell man. They couldnt protect the families of these guys if not them by not releasing their fracking personal info?
The 18TB figure refers to information that is classified or sensitive that I have in my possession (or is accessible to me) and that I believe has not yet been made public in any form. I have not made it public myself due to a few constraints or issues that I first need to research. I include this in my warning as any police found to be interfering with the free press or activists wanting to expose wrongdoing should know they will put their name at the top of the list for material releases by doing so. Turning the situation into a #-flinging battle won’t end well for either of us, so I would prefer all parties keep this civil.

This should be amusing. Can't wait to see what's in there. It would be fine to see FOP fall to a RICO suit, but as always, anything to do with cops will end up stalled until everyone forgets about it and then swept under the rug.

On March 14, 2013, The Florida Times-Union reported that the Jacksonville Fraternal Order of Police Foundation Inc. removed Nelson Cuba as its president "two days after Cuba was arrested as part of a $300 million racketeering and money laundering scheme" in relation to another nonprofit, Allied Veterans of the World.
The article notes that the "foundation received charitable donations from Allied Veterans of the World, the organization at the crux of the racketeering scheme. It was listed as one of two operators of a gaming center on Florida 200 in Yulee on a federal application for a search warrant." And the article says that the "foundation board also authorized an internal investigation of all spending." For more information, please see the Florida Times-Union article and our Donor Advisory for Allied Veterans of the World Inc. and Affiliates.
On January 6, 2015, the Jacksonville News reported that Nelson Cuba "was taking a plea deal that concluded his Allied Veterans of the World criminal case." According to the article, Cuba will get "one year of house arrest, four years' probation and no prison time. He also agreed to donate $45,000 to the Homeless Services Network of Central Florida, an organization that helps homeless veterans. He is guilty of one count each of the manufacture, sale or possession of illegal slot machines, operating an illegal lottery and illegally structuring a monetary transaction. The first is a second-degree misdemeanor and the other two are third-degree felonies. All other charges against Cuba were dismissed." For more information, please see the Jacksonville News article.
This is the exact kind of thing that I hope gets exposed and hopefully a whole lot of it!
The level of corruption that exists within the circles of those who are supposed to be protectors of the innocent is staggering.
How is he getting a year of house arrest and 4 years probation!? It must be nice to have racketeering/money laundering charges simply dismissed!
