Cop Arrested After He Was Caught Looting and Assaulting Protester During Brutality Protest

 A 11-year veteran of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department was fired, and charged with assault, filing a false police report and looting in reference to an event at an enormous sports equipment store amid George Floyd protests on June 1.

During the Floyd protests, which spanned from coast to coast, countless stores and businesses were looted and lots of of them burned to the bottom .

While the bulk of the protesters remain entirely peaceful, these criminal factions discredit most everything the protests represent .

When cops being participating within the criminal activity also the road gets blurred even further.

Erdem Gorgulu, 46, responded with other sheriff's deputies to a call of looting at the shop .

Upon entry Gorgulu encountered Juan Martinez, 28, who was allegedly mistreated by Gorgulu in an excessive use of force incident.

Another deputy reportedly witnessed the incident and crossed over the skinny blue line to report the interest the police watch commander who promptly opened an investigation.

Gorgulu's car was searched after a warrant was obtained and items, belonging to the large 5 from 2150 East Highland Avenue, were located in his vehicle.

Deputy Gorgulu was later fired and charges of assault and looting soon followed.

Amazingly enough, Gorgulu was turned in by a fellow cop.

Erdem Gorgulu charged with assault with a deadly weapon, looting, and other charges.

Charges against Martinez were later dropped for lack of evidence.

San Bernardino County Sheriff John Macmahon weighed in on the incident in support of the officer who turned in his fellow boy in blue.

I will not allow criminal acts to travel unchecked and assure the general public our deputies are going to be held to the very best standardI applaud deputies for standing up for what's all along with the overwhelming majority of enforcement officers across this great nation who do the proper things for the proper reasons a day .

The criminal acts committed by Gorgulu while serving in his capacity as a deputy are inexcusable and undermine all the great , valuable work deputies do every day Although Gorgulu's acts were unacceptable and disheartening, this incident is an example of how deputies are willing to return forward and report unethical behavior.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney's office appears willing and ready to prosecute Gorgulu.

When it are often proven beyond an inexpensive doubt during a court of law, we'll prosecute those liable for committing criminal acts, no matter who they're .

Curiously silent within the matter of a sheriff's deputy charged with serious crimes is that the police officers' union which matches by the title The Sheriff's Employees' Benefit Association.

A search of Gorgulu's name on their website came up empty, indicating the union will likely side with Gorgulu if he's one among their members.

It's unclear at now if Gorgulu's firing, arrest, and charges are simply a show of force against alleged corruption or if the sheriff and therefore the DA will plow ahead with prosecution.

As we've reported within the past, repeatedly when deputies are charged with crimes, not only are the fees later dropped, when all the eye to the case diminishes, but they often times get their jobs back and go right back to abusing the supposed authority given to them by way of their badge.
