SSCC #519 – Minneapolis

A Minneapolis police officer is in jail after his arrest for allegedly having off-duty sexual encounters with several girls between the ages of 12 and 14, according to the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators from the Brooklyn Center Police Department were alerted that Bradley Schnickel, 32, used social media to contact a female and sent inappropriate messages to her. The investigation widened and multiple possible female victims were identified, authorities said. Cmdr. Paul Sommer of the Sheriff’s Office declined to provide a number.

Remember though, those in law enforcement should be given a monopoly on force.  They are anointed and could do no wrong against the rest of the public.

As usual he’s on paid administrative leave but given the number of officers who have done this while working as school resource officers, he’s on the count.

State Sponsored Criminal #519: Bradley Schnickel

Because a position of trust is so easy to use to manipulate people who are young and naive, especially when that position is instructed by many to be obeyed without question. 

SSCC #484 – Wicomico County

Kendall Elmer West, 44, Salisbury was indicted by a Wicomico County grand jury this week for second-degree assault and fourth-degree sex offense — just days after he quit his job of 13 years.

According to court documents, West met the victim when she was 15-years-old through his position at Parkside High School.

Remember though folks, in response to a horrible tragedy people are not only screaming to ban guns, but throw more officers into the schools.  While not every officer is evil, it does increase the probability for a predator to end up among the sheep.

Because predators need easy access while in a position of authority.

SSCC #450 – Colorado Springs

Former Colorado Springs Police officer Josh Carrier has been found guilty on dozens of counts related to molesting boys at a middle school in the city, where he served as a volunteer wrestling coach.

Honestly this one’s a bad one.  Bad enough that you can just go read the details if you want.  Since he was in a position of authority and could have just as easily accomplished this as a school liaison officer, he’s on the count.

Because when you’re a cop, no one will suspect you.

SSCC #398–Rockwood

"It is alleged that Zieminski engaged in inappropriate sexual contact using force or coercion with a female prisoner who was in his custody at the time," Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Maria Miller said in a release issued Tuesday.

Couldn’t get any worse than that right?

This is the second time that sexual improprieties while employed as a police officer have led to Zieminski’s firing.

(Emphasis mine.)  Yeah, I think the state is culpable for round two.  It is worth noting the following as well about the prior incident.

Zieminski was fired by the Rockwood Police Department on July 6, though Rockwood Police Chief Stephen Rowe declined to state the reason, according to the News-Herald, and once before in 2006 when he was 28 and worked in Brownstown Township as a police liaison at Woodhaven High School, during which time a 17-year-old female student reported having inappropriate contact with Ziemenski.

Are we surprised a sexual predator would want to be in law enforcement where his position would give him “unquestioned authority”.

State Sponsored Criminal #398: Christian Zieminski

Because evidently the city of Rockwood feels that it is a smart idea to place a sexual predator around people while giving him a badge and a gun to coerce his victims.

SSCC Update–Columbus

This incident is going from bad to worse.

“There is an ongoing investigation to (determine) the identity of other potential victims,” Squires wrote in a motion. “There is evidence indicating there is at least one additional potential victim.”

The additional details confirm my thoughts as well.

Last week, a federal grand jury indicted Smith on two charges of attempted production of sexual photos or videos of minors and one charge of coercing a minor to have sex with him.

There is evil in this world, and some times the evil tries to appear as the good.

State Sponsored Criminal: Todd L. Smith

Because there is no doubt when others say the following:

“Smith abused his position of trust, which was to guard safety and security of children at school,” Squires wrote. He said Smith encouraged one of his female victims to “film sex acts with another adult.”

That position of trust was created and managed by the state.

SSCC Honorable Mention – Chillicothe PD

A Chillicothe police officer who retired this year has been charged with sex crimes involving a 15-year-old girl.

This one is unlike the others in the fact that this one doesn’t involve an officer being assigned to a school.  However this is yet another example of a predator looking to hide in plain view.  Even more than just hiding in plain view, they are seeking positions which will provide them a blanket of trust.

McKee served on the Chillicothe police force from 1986 until he retired on March 1. The allegations against him did not arise until after his retirement, Schmidt said. McKee also has been a minister with Liberty Hill Christian Union Church since 2009.

Not only was he a cop, but a minister too.  Both of those positions people provide a blanket amount of trust and the serious predators know it.  I wish that the world was a better place, but human nature means that some are predators, some are sheep, and some are sheep dogs.  The most dangerous predators know to appear as a sheep dog.

State Sponsored Criminal Honorable Mention: Richard Eric McKee

Because sometimes the best place to hide is in plain sight.  Even better is to compound positions that will induce trust.
