Pedophile Former Charlotte County Florida Deputy Sheriff Ken Barton Charged With Child Pornography – Previously Investigated After Affairs With Children

June 6, 2012

CHARLOTTE COUNTY FLORIDA – The Charlotte County Sheriff is giving us more in sight into the arrest of a former deputy who is now behind bars. Charged with possessing child porn, Ken Barton was accused of sexual misconduct while he was on the job. Allegations came to light in 2007 when a girl came forward calling barton “Uncle Ken” and claimed that in the early 1980’s when she was 6 to 10 years old, Barton had sexually assaulted her. The investigation into that accusation subsequently led to another accusation that Barton had carried on an affair in the early ’80s with a young lady in the Explorer program in Englewood which Barton was running.

An internal affairs investigation in 2007 of then deputy Ken Barton sustained the allegations of the affair with the teen, but back then the affair was not considered a crime.

“We did not have a crime so we were actually investigating policy violations,” said Sheriff Bill Cameron.

On the original allegation, The sheriff says the department found enough evidence to file a warrant request with the State Attorney’s office, but the State Attorney’s Office says there was not enough evidence to build a case a quarter of a centery after the alleged crime. They also pointed out that the memory of the victim left quite a few gaps in her story.

As for this latest case, Sheriff Cameron was quick to point out that his agency participated with the F.B.I. in Barton’s arrest yesterday.

“The innocent images task force that is doing these investigations- i have a detective assigned to that task force,” said Cameron.

He was also quick to distance his agency from Barton pointing out that the crimes that Barton have been accused of happened five years after Barton left the agency.

Pedophile Veteran Troy New York Police Officer Sgt. Patrick Rosney Suspended After Arrest In New York City While Seeking Sex With 14 Year Old Girl

June 3, 2012

TROY, NEW YORK – A Troy police sergeant has found himself on the other side of the law. Patrick Rosney was arrested by New York City Police. They say he entered a chat room this week and believed he was talking with a 14-year-old girl who was actually an undercover police officer.

He is accused of trying to solicit sex.

The 26-year veteran is charged with attempted dissemination of indecent material to minor and endangering the welfare of a child.

Troy Police Chief John Tedesco said the case is taking a toll on the department.

“Officers today after the arrest was made. We’ll continue to do so throughout the day at other role calls. As you can imagine, they’re angry. Certainly take into consideration sympathies for his family but we’re a strong agency, we’re an agency of character and we’ll get through this. We do expect a rough ride obviously but there’s a lot of anger,” said Chief Tedesco.

Rosney has been suspended without pay. He was taken to Queens on Friday for arraignment.

Crazed Volusia County School Officals Take Child’s Asthma Inhaler – Nurse Refused To Give It Back During Severe Asthma Attack – Mother Arrives To Find Son Collapsing Against Wall Of Nurse’s Office

May 23, 2012

DELTONA, FLORIDA – Volusia County School officials stand by a Deltona High School nurse’s decision to refuse a student his inhaler during an asthma attack, citing a lack of a parent’s signature on a medical release form.

“It’s like something out of a horror film. The person just sits there and watches you die,” said Michael Rudi, 17. “She sat there, looked at me and she did nothing.”

He said the school dean found his inhaler during a search of his locker last Friday. The inhaler was still in its original packaging — complete with his name and directions for its use; however, the school took it away because his mother hadn’t signed the proper form for him to have it.

School leaders called Sue Rudi when her son started having trouble breathing. She rushed to the office and was taken back to the nurse’s office by school administrators and they discovered the teen on the floor.

“As soon as we opened up the door, we saw my son collapsing against the wall on the floor of the nurse’s office while she was standing in the window of the locked door looking down at my son, who was in full-blown asthma attack,” Rudi said.

Michael Rudi said when he started to pass out from his attack, the nurse locked the door.

“I believe that when I closed my eyes I wasn’t going to wake up,” he said.

The Director of Student Health Services, Cheryl Selesky, said that parents must sign the medical release form each year, which allows students to carry their prescribed drugs with them in school.

This year, the district had no record of his Rudi’s signature, said Selesky.

“I mean its common sense if I saw an animal on the street in distress I would probably stop to help, why wouldn’t she help a child,” Sue Rudi said.

But Rudi is a senior, and his mother said the district has had records of his asthma throughout his years in the school.

She thinks her son could have died because of a technicality.

“How dare you deny my son something that we all take for granted, breath,” said Sue Rudi. “Why didn’t someone call 911?”

Selesky said the district is looking into whether proper procedures were followed by the school, and while nurses can’t give medications without the proper authorization, it is district policy to call 911 when a student cannot breath.

Selesky could not explain why 911 was never called.

“I understand if you can’t give it to him call 911,” Sue Rudi said. “Why did you not call 911?”

Sue Rudi said she worries about the next student caught in a similar situation, and has filed charges against the nurse with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

“I want to press child endangerment charges for something they did to my son,” Rudi said in the 911 call.

Local 6 reached out to the school district officials for more information, but they declined to interview.

TSA Labels 18 Month Old Girl A Terrorist, Removes Her And Parents From JetBlue Flight

May 10, 2012

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA – Eighteen-month-old Riyanna has been called a lot of things: cute, adorable and now … a suspected terrorist.

She was called that on Tuesday night at the Ft Lauderdale Airport. She and her parents had just boarded a JetBlue flight when an airline employee approached them and asked them to get off the plane, saying representatives from the Transportation Security Agency wanted to speak to them.

“And I said, ‘For what?'” Riyanna’s mother told only WPBF 25 News on Wednesday. “And he said, ‘Well, it’s not you or your husband. Your daughter was flagged as no fly.’ I said, ‘Excuse me?'”

Riyanna’s father was flabbergasted.

“It’s absurd,” he said. “It made no sense. Why would an 18-month-old child be on a no-fly list?”

ALSO: Man buys candy bar, then steals cash from register

Riyanna’s parents, who asked not to be identified, said they think they know the answer to that question. They believe they were profiled because they are both of Middle Eastern descent. Riyanna’s mother wears a hijab, a traditional head scarf. That’s why they have asked to remain anonymous. They said they’re concerned about repurcussions. That said, they are both Americans, born and raised in New Jersey, just like their daughter.

Riyanna’s parents said once they were taken off the plane, they were met by TSA agents and made to stand in the terminal for about 30 minutes.

“We were put on display like a circus act because my wife wears a hijab,” Riyanna’s father said.

Crazed Wichita Kansas TSA Agent Detained And Accused 4 Year Old Girl Of Having Gun – Declared Her A “High Security Threat”

April 24, 2012

WICHITA, KANSAS – Of all the many complaints about airport security and the TSA, one of the most common is that they make little distinction between plausible security threats and passengers unlikely to be doing anything wrong.

And a recent incident in Wichita, Kansas has reinforced that argument, as a four-year-old girl was apparently subjected to a humiliating ordeal after she hugged her grandmother while she was waiting in line.

The girl was accused of having a gun and declared a ‘high security threat’, while agents threatened to shut down the whole airport if she could not be calmed down.

When asked about the overbearing treatment the girl received, a TSA spokesman did not apologise and insisted that correct procedures had been followed.

Four-year-old Isabella’s horrific experience in Wichita earlier this month was recounted on Facebook by her furious mother Michelle Brademeyer.

The family was in Kansas for a wedding, and was travelling home to Montana with Ms Brademeyer’s mother.

Ms Brademeyer and her two children had passed through security when the grandmother was detained after triggering an alarm on the scanners.

Isabella then, according to her mother, ‘excitedly ran over to give her a hug, as children often do. They made very brief contact, no longer than a few seconds.’

The young girl was immediately detained by security agents, who apparently shouted at her that she would have to be frisked too, and refused to let her mother explain what has happening.

Ms Brademeyer wrote: ‘It was implied, several times, that my mother, in their brief two-second embrace, had passed a handgun to my daughter.’

In her terror, Isabella tried to run away rather than face a full body pat-down, which unsurprisingly enraged the TSA officers further.

One officer even told the girl’s mother that the airport would have to be shut down and every flight cancelled if the four-year-old did not co-operate.

They also apparently described the little girl as a ‘high security threat’.

As Isabella was taken into a side room for a pat-down, accompanied by her mother, she could not stop crying and refused to let the agents touch her.

An officer repeatedly said she had ‘seen a gun in a teddy bear’ in the past, in an apparent attempt to justify the situation.

Ms Brademeyer continued: ‘The TSO loomed over my daughter, with an angry grimace on her face, and ordered her to stop crying.

‘When my scared child could not do so, two TSOs called for backup saying, “The suspect is not cooperating.” The suspect, of course, being a frightened child. They treated my daughter no better than if she had been a terrorist.’

Isabella continued to cry, and officers said the family would have to leave the airport as the TSA was unable to frisk the four-year-old.

When a manager was called, he decided that the distraught Isabella could be checked alongside her mother, and let the family pass through security at last.

But their nightmare was not yet over, as on a connecting flight in Denver, an airport employee demanded to know which of the family was Isabella – and ‘looked really confused’ when the girl was pointed out to her.

Ms Brademeyer concluded her Facebook post by drawing attention to TSA rules against separating children from their parents, and added: ‘I feel compelled to share this story in the hope that no other child will have to share in this experience.’

When The Consumerist approached the TSA for comment on the bizarre incident, a spokesman said: ‘TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper current screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child.’

Last month the agency came in for criticism when a video of a three-year-old boy in wheelchair having a full pat-down and being swabbed for explosives circulated on the internet.

Pedophile Veteran Long Beach California Police Officer Arrested And Charged With Child Pornography After Seeking Sex With Teen While On Duty

April 21, 2012

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA – A nine-year veteran of the Long Beach Police Department has been arrested on suspicion of felony possession of child pornography after reportedly meeting a teenager while on patrol and soliciting explicit photographs of the youth through electronic messages, police said.

Noe Yanez, 40, was taken into custody Thursday evening by Long Beach police after an investigation that began earlier this month. The alleged victim had told a school resources officer about the messages and authorities were alerted. Detectives served several search warrants in the investigation of Yanez’s home and other establishments for records of the communications.

Yanez first came into contact with the minor during the course of his work as a patrolman, police said. He initially contacted the teen through text messages and subsequently solicited inappropriate photographs of the victim, according to the department. Yanez was suspended without pay Thursday pending the resolution of the criminal and administrative investigation.

Sources familiar with the investigation said detectives have not ruled out the possibility of other victims. Department investigators have obtained computer data and phone records seeking to verify the extent of the activity, the sources said.

“Not only are the actions of this officer a violation of the law, they are a violation of the community’s trust and a violation of the principles of this department,” Police Chief Jim McDonnell said. “The men and women of this department take great pride in the good work they do every day with the community, and we will not allow the actions of this one officer to compromise that relationship.” McDonnell said the investigation is ongoing, but authorities i believed an arrest was warranted at this time.

The accusation comes one year after another Long Beach officer was booked after his wife found him having sex with a minor. That detective, Erik Alvarez of Upland, subsequently resigned and was convicted of having a sexual relationship with the girl since she was 15. He received a two-year sentence in state prison.

Yanez was being held on $20,000 bail Thursday at the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail. Long Beach detectives are planning to present the case to the county district attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division, which specializes in prosecuting law enforcement officials and lawyers. Long Beach police declined Friday to release a photo of the officer or give more details about the victim.

Interrogation Of 7th Grader Without Parents Consent Included Secret Service And Tacoma Washington Police

May 17, 2011

TACOMA, WASHINGTON – A Tacoma seventh grader faced federal interrogation at school for what he posted on his Facebook page. His mom said it all happened without her knowledge or permission.

Timi Robertson said she had just finished lunch with a friend Friday when she got a phone call from her son’s school.

“I answered it, and it’s the school security guard who’s giving me a heads up that the Secret Service is here with the Tacoma Police Department and they have Vito and they’re talking to him,” Robertson said.

After Osama bin Laden was killed, 13-year-old Vito LaPinta posted an update to his Facebook status that got the Feds attention.

“I was saying how Osama was dead and for Obama to be careful because there could be suicide bombers,” says LaPinta.

A week later, while Vito was in his fourth period class, he was called in to the principal’s office.

“A man walked in with a suit and glasses and he said he was part of the Secret Service,” LaPinta said. “He told me it was because of a post I made that indicated I was a threat toward the President.”

The Tacoma school district acknowledged a Secret Service agent questioned Vito and that it was a security guard who called Vito’s mom because the principal was on another call. The school district said they didn’t wait for Vito’s mother to get there because they thought she didn’t take the phone call seriously.

“That’s a blatant lie,” Robertson said.

The teen’s mom says she rushed to Truman Middle School immediately and arrived to discover her son had already been questioned for half an hour.

“I just about lost it,” she said. “My 13 year-old son is supposed to be safe and secure in his classroom and he’s being interrogated without my knowledge or consent privately.”

The seventh grader said that once his mom showed up, the agent finished the interview and told him he was not in any trouble. Now he’s more careful about what he posts online.

His mother says she isn’t financially able to take legal action but hopes her family’s story raises awareness about the treatment she said her son endured.

The Seattle branch of the Secret Service did not respond to requests for comment.
