A municipal police officer in the city of Baltimore, Maryland is headed to prison for selling heroin.
Daniel Redd, who is just 41 years old, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for distributing heroin while he was on duty in full uniform.
Redd received an additional 5 years of supervised probation to begin once he completes his 20 year sentence.
Wonder if Redd thinks it was all worth it!
Call me naïve, but who knew that the very individuals entrusted to clean up our streets, were actually adding to the filth?!
According to the United States Department of Justice website, www.justice.gov, Redd sold no less a kilogram and as much as 200 kilograms of heroin, armed with a firearm, while on duty, and in uniform.
Not to sensationalize the facts, but that’s what our tax dollars paid for.
This comes as a shock, particularly for those of us who were under the impression that police officers were employed to uphold the laws, not break them, not to mention corrupt the moral fiber of society and add to the increasing epidemic of addiction to illicit substances like heroin.
No judgment, just the facts! By the way, do you wonder what else police officers are getting away with?
