A small-town North Carolina cop raped a 13-year-old girl while on duty, and the town hired him without any psychological screening after he had raped an 11-year-old, the teenager claims in court. Guardian ad litem James W. McGee Jr. sued the Town of Navassa, its Mayor Eulis A. Willis, the Navassa Police Department and former Police Chief Copelen L. Taylor, in state court. Former Officer Jaymin Lenwood Murphy was sentenced in December 2010 to 41 years in prison for sexual offenses against the two girls mentioned in this complaint, according to the Wilmington Star News. In a plea deal, the sentencing judge dismissed three counts of rape and two counts of indecent liberties with a minor, the Star News reported.
The girl says that Murphy "threatened her mother and herself with jail" so she "was too terrified and traumatized by her rape to report it to anyone." She felt safe enough to do so only after she "saw the news report of the arrest of Officer Murphy for another sexual assault of an earlier victim(s) (his aforementioned ex-girlfriend's daughter)," according to the complaint. (Parentheses in complaint.)
In prison, fellow inmates derisively call pedophiles "chesters," "tree jumpers" and "short eyes." Prison can be a menacing place for child molesters like the former Roman Catholic priest John Geoghan, who was killed in his cell Saturday — or for other alleged pedophile priests working their way through the criminal justice system. "If you take out a sex offender like this former priest in Massachusetts, maybe the person who took him out thought he'd make a name of himself," said Margot Bach, a spokeswoman for California Department of Corrections. "Taking [a pedophile] out would gain [the killer] a lot more respect among the other inmates."
At 10 a.m. Saturday morning, guards found him awash in blood in his cell. Police believe that two inmates, Nathan Mann and Michael Parr, attacked him with makeshift weapons consisting of razor blades melted into toothbrush handles. Detectives say Harrison wasn't just murdered; he was disemboweled and likely bled to death.

does anyone know if there is a screening process for pedophiles?
so some times they are found out just not always shanked
Several months into his term, Smith was confronted in the prison yard by an inmate who recognized him as a former officer, Chuck said. "He denied he was" a former officer, the lawyer said. "It was very scary because there were other people in the yard listening to this confrontation. "About the worst thing you can be in prison other than a child molester is an ex-cop," he said. "He lives in constant fear that he will meet someone in prison who will recognize him." Authorities moved Smith to another facility after the prison yard confrontation.
see that usually placed in gen pop until some one confronts them stupidly and neglects to shank them on site.
In the inmate pecking order in jails and prisons, former cops rank near the bottom, just above child molesters and rapists, authorities say. State officials say they do not keep track of how many former law enforcement officers make their way into California's prison system. Convicted cops usually are placed in the general prison population, but their law enforcement backgrounds are kept secret, state Department of Corrections spokesman Mike Van Winkle said. If it becomes necessary, they may be moved to other prisons or into a protective custody unit at the state prison in Soledad
so if they end up in fed prison they get thrown to the wolves as a policy until their is a threat and some times not even then.....
Police officers convicted of a crime in Maryland and sentenced to state prison are typically housed in segregated areas for their safety, far from most other inmates. But those prosecuted in U.S. District Court and sent to federal prison — like the 15 Baltimore officers recently convicted in a kickback scheme — will, for the most part, be thrown in with the rest of the convicts. "Whether [inmates are] high profile, law enforcement, whatever the case may be, we aim to treat them like anybody else," said Chris Burke, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
so protective custody is not always infallible its an incredibly hard search term to use on google as most of the results are for killers of cops or corrections officers i did find sever "suspicious cases" of officers who "died" in jail (one of them in the showers who was a rapist of children 11 counts) it seems to me that if the inmates manage to get one of the former cops shanked that prison officials would do all they could to cover it up so im not surprised they ruled it a natural death in that case
Meanwhile the rioters began taunting prison officials over the radio about what they were going to do to the men in cell block 4. But no action was taken. One official was heard to remark about the men in the segregation facility, "it's their a**". As dawn broke, an 'execution squad' finally cut through the grille and entered the block. The security panel controlling the cell doors was burned off. Victims were pulled from their cells to be tortured, dismembered, decapitated, or burned alive.
