SSCC #219 – Indy PD

A former Indianapolis police officer who set a string of apartment fires won’t serve time in jail.

The reason he’s not going to jail?

Judge Grant Hawkins expressed concern about Russell’s safety if he sentenced him to prison.

So remember, if you want to be a criminal, become a cop.  That way you can escape prison.  Not only that, but you can get your felony reduced after the fact.

If Russell successfully completes his probation he can come back to the court and ask for alternative misdemeanor sentencing.

Other than the anointed class, who else gets that kind of treatment?

State Sponsored Criminal Count 219: Jesse Russell Jr.

Because prison isn’t for bad police, it’s only for the the lowly peons.
