I saw this story online, and it’s a good story of police arresting one of their own.

Sebastian Police (Florida) Sgt. William Grimmich arrested and charged with Trafficking Oxycodone $100,000 bond, Felony Tamper or Destroy Evidence $50,000 bond. He is still in jail to this date. Below is a link to the arrest affadavit, and the news story.

According to a post at WPTV.com by Jason Davis:

Sebastian Police Chief Michelle Morris stated that, “routine accounting and auditing procedures earlier this year revealed discrepancies in submission of controlled substances placed into the evidence room.”

The Chief requested an investigation following this discovery by an outside agency.

Robert Vester, Marshall County (IL) Deputy Sheriff, Complete Abuse of Power

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

The information below was shared via CopBlock.org/Submit by Allison Griggs, who seeks to inform others in her community about the subpar actions of someone who – at least according to the website of his employer – protect the citizens of Marshall County.

Date of Interaction: 05/01/2014
Individual Responsible: Robert Vester
Outfit: Marshall County Sheriff’s Department
Phone: (309) 246-2115

This deputy sheriff, Robert Vester, from Marshall County, Lacon, IL, is posing here in this picture, pretending to be a disabled person. This is one of the only pictures you can see on his Facebook page.

Robert, not only was pulling multiple cars over at the Summercamp Festival, but he was doing illegal searches and confiscating phones, etc. After he arrested multiple people for no reason, we started investigating him because of the way he treated people (along with his co workers). Compete abuse of power. He is messing with people’s lives and costing then gobs of money.

Nowhere is it ok to imitate a handicapped person, let alone someone in his position to be doing it. He is supposed to be helping the community, not hurting people and making fun of the helpless!

Please, please, post this picture and bring awareness to this horrible situation!

Editors Note: Prior to posting this I checked the Marshall County Sheriff’s website, to confirm that Robert Vester was in fact employed there. Upon finding that the site lacked the employees’ names (save for the head-honcho Robert E. Russell). Thus, I decided to call to confirm. On Saturday, September 20th, I called the Marshall County Sheriff’s Outfit (309.246.2115)and asked the gentleman who answered the phone whether a man by the name of “Robert Vester” was employed there. I was greeted first by silence then was asked my identity. I stated that who I was not important to the information sought, which should be public. I again asked if Robert Vester worked there and was again asked my identity. I then asked the gentleman I was speaking with if he was Robert Vester and was told “No.” I then asked if he had a colleague named Robert Vester and after a silence, was hung-up on. I called back, and someone else answered. I asked that person if a Robert Vester was employed there and was told “Yes.” Why the difficulty

Peaceful Walker Illegally Disarmed and Falsely Charged by Kenneth Sessions, Atmore Police Employee

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

Chad Thrower shared the content below via CopBlock.org/Submit – if you have a moment please give the Atmore police a call and question why they targeted a man who did nothing criminal.

Atmore-Police-Department-PatchDate of Interaction: September 3, 2014
Police Employees Involved: Officer Kenneth C. Sessions;
Police Outfit: Atmore (AL) Police Department
Phone: 251-368-9141

My brother and I recently started walking for exercise the week the incident occurred. We went fairly early in the morning/late at night to avoid the daytime heat, usually between 1:00 am and 4:00 am. I carry my pistol with me for protection. I let my concealed carry permit expire a few months back, so I was carrying the pistol openly, as Alabama law allows.

When we were about approximately three or four blocks from home a police car came up behind us and began following us. He was creeping slowly behind us for about a half a block. He then pulled up near us and asks where are we headed. I respond with, “that’s none of your business.” He gets out of the car, flashlight pointed at my firearm and seemed angry because I refused to answer his question.

At gun point, he orders me to put my hands on the car, takes my pistol, and searched my person after I refused to give consent to a search of my person. He called backup and about five or six other officers soon arrived. They all huddle up and talk awhile. After they finish the same officer returns to me and puts me in handcuffs.

I was told I was under arrest for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, which is a total fabrication. My pistol was in a holster, my shirt was tucked behind the pistol, and was plainly visible.

Editors Note: If Chad was conceal carrying, as was claimed by Kenneth C. Sessions, how was his firearm spotted? It’d be interesting to read the twisted “facts” of the police report he submitted… Also, to think that one can only carry an item of their own property a certain way (concealed) after gaining permission from others who position themselves as “rulers”, fuels the idea that there are two classes of people, which is not conducive to a free society.

In the future, Chad, and everyone else reading this, is encouraged to always carry a video or audio recording device on their person, and to use to capture an objective record should a police interaction occur.

OpenCarry.org describes Alabama as:

Alabama is a traditional open carry state. The only thing preventing it from being one of our “Gold Star” open carry states is their prohibition against carrying openly in a vehicle without a permit.
