Cowardly Tin Badge Officers-Rape, Sex & Silence




Did the Florida State's Attorney's office make the right judgement call when they allowed a rapist who was a police officer to take a plea bargin deal? Maybe they didn't feel the victims would be able to go through with a trial and discuss what happened to them on a witness stand in front of a jury। And yet, had the case gone to trial Ragusa would have received life in prison। He'll be out when he is forty-two, and have the ability to live a good portion of his life as a free man। But, for rape victims, it is not so cut and dry। They will forever live with the trauma and fear of what was done to them for the remainder of their lives. They already have and will live the "crime victims prison", a place where the mind replays the criminal act in ways none of us can imagine. http://www.local10.com/news/15292315/detail.html -----------------------------




WINSTON-SALEM -- Former Landis police Chief Charles Childers will serve more than 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography and Internet-related sex crimes.
Childers stood before a federal judge in Winston-Salem and begged for mercy on Tuesday। Childers could have been given up to 45 years for the child pornography crimes।----------------------------------------------------

Susan, this is just a fine example of the Attorney's office not wanting to let one of their police offers face justice in a courtroom. They are giving him special treatment because of who he is. In a way its a lot like celebrity justice. Its absolutely outrageous and the public needs to stand up and speak out agianst it.

No, I am never for plea bargins. Nancy Grace has spoken out agianst this. Lazy prosecutors who don't wanna do their job accept pleas. I want justice in the courtroom. I want the sentence as long as possible. Prosecutors: Do your job! Stop the pleas! Prosecute.
