Top 5 Most Corrupt U.S. Police Officers Of All-Time

Prior to my first hand experiences I always had the utmost respect for police officers serving the community in what I feel is one of the hardest and most dangerous jobs possible, now I feel as though many police are just as bad if not worse than many criminals.

I am sure there must still be some police officers that are honest and upstanding and in the job for the right reasons, but they are very few and far between.

In America, our cops are becoming less and less distinguishable from the security apparati of 1970s-era petty dictatorships in Central and South America. Where once they wore uniforms which were appropriate to civil servants, albeit ones with guns, they now don the habiliments of what more closely resembles a paramilitary organization, and they have the bullying, menacing, we’re-above-the-law attitudes to go along with them.

1. Robert Gisevius, Kenneth Bowen, and Anthony Villavaso

Robert Gisevius, Kenneth Bowen, and Anthony Villavaso were members of the New Orleans police department during Hurricane Katrina. They were charged with first degree murder for killing seventeen-year-old James Brissette who was innocent and unarmed during Hurricane Katrina on the Danzinger bridge. Brisette was simply looking for shelter in the Hurricane and cops pounced on him.

Bowen, Gisevius, Faulcon, Villavaso were found guilty of falsifying reports and false prosecution in the conspiracy to cover-up the shooting and may face the death penalty.

2. Jon Burge

Jon Burge is a former Chicago Police Department detective who oversaw the torture of hundreds of Black men resulting in false confessions between 1972 and 1991.

Burge would burn suspects with radiators and cigarettes, and electrocute their testicles.

Although Burge was protected by the statute of limitations for his crimes, he was convicted for lying about the torture in January of this year.

3. David Mack And Rafael Perez

David Mack and Rafael Perez worked together for the LAPD Rampart division, but also worked for Death Row Records and were members of the Bloods gang.

Mack would receive the LAPD Medal Of Honor for killing a drug dealer who allegedly pulled a gun on him. But he would also later be  convicted of robbing a bank and be implicated in the murder of rapper, Notorious BIG.

Perez shot and framed an unarmed gang member during his tenure, and stole eight pounds of cocaine from an LAPD evidence locker.

4.  Joseph Miedzianowski

Joseph Miedzianowski was a Chicago police officer labeled as the most corrupt cop. Miedzianowski served as both police officer and drug kingpin using his knowledge of the streets and gangs to shake down drug dealers.

For most of his 22-year career, Miedzianowski would run the Chicago Gangs Unit, while running his own drug gang at the same time. Miedzianowski would be convicted of 10 counts including drug conspiracy and racketeering in 2001.

5. Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa

Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa worked for the NYPD but in reality, they worked for the mafia. Caracappa was a member of the Organized Crime Homicide Unit investigating the very people he was working for.

The two former partners were taking orders for the Lucchese crime family and served as hitmen as well as moles in the NYPD. In 2006,  Eppolito and Caracappa were convicted of racketeering, obstruction of justice, extortion and eight counts of murder and conspiracy.

Police corruption is a major problem in the United States. Some police officers turn bad to make money through ripping off drug dealers and even dealing drugs themselves. Some try and cover up their own acts of brutality, murder and even torture.

Police corruption happens in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans and every major U.S. city and is conducted by officers of all races, creeds and colors.

Police brutality and use of excessive force has been one of General Strike USAs campaign on human rights violations in the USA. General Strike USA.com documented patterns of ill-treatment across the USA, including police beatings, unjustified shootings and the use of dangerous restraint techniques to subdue suspects. While only a minority of the many thousands of law enforcement officers in the USA engage in deliberate and wanton brutality, General Strike USA.com found that too little was being done to monitor or check persistent abusers, or to ensure that police tactics in certain common situations minimized the risk of unnecessary force and injury. The report also noted that widespread, systematic abuses had been found in some jurisdictions or police precincts. It highlighted evidence that racial and ethnic minorities were disproportionately the victims of police misconduct, including false arrest and harassment as well as verbal and physical abuse.Police brutality has become the focus of acute national attention due to several high profile cases, including the fatal shooting of an unarmed West African immigrant, Amadou Diallo, in New York City in February 1999. Four white officers from an elite crime squad looking for a rape suspect fired 41 shots at Diallo, striking him 19 times as he stood in the vestibule of his apartment building. The shooting highlighted not only the tactics of the crime squad itself (which had been the subject of repeated complaints) but wider concern about police unjustly targeting black people and other minorities as potential criminals.

And yet nothing is being done. The police become more militarized and more brutal. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We are not safe from criminals with the police and we’re not safe when we call the police.
Neither City councils or state legislatures seem willing to act, it is left to the people to bring justice! We have given them every benefit of the doubt, every chance to reform, we can not in good conscience continue to wait and hope. The time is now, we must act.
