Cop Praised as ‘Hero’ Just Arrested on Multiple Charges of Child Sexual Abuse

Just 10 months ago, the Fraternal Order of Police in Jacksonville took to Facebook to praise officer David Gedert for his heroism on the work .

This month they're quickly distancing themselves from the person after he was arrested for the alleged rape of a toddler under the age of 13.

On Tuesday, Gedert was arrested on two outstanding warrants for charges of criminal sexual misconduct with a victim younger than 13, consistent with the Jacksonville Sheriff's office.

It seems as if Gedert attempted to flee the pending charges against him as he moved to Jacksonville, Florida and therefore the charges were from Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Because Gedert had only been with the department for fewer than two years, he wasn't yet within the protected status and police could fire him.

"He is fired without question and can not function policeman here," Undersheriff Pat Ivey said, noting Gedert might be terminated immediately since he was a probationary employee and had no government officials protection.

The details of Gedert's charges are sealed thanks to the character of his alleged crimes and therefore the age of the victim.

Ivey said the department had no way of knowing they hired an alleged pedophile as long as the crimes that he was just arrested are imagined to have happened six years ago.

" I wish we could have caught this one within the processing, but again knowing the behavior was six years ago, there might not are an indicator.

Though these crimes are imagined to have happened six years ago, as TFTP has reported, pedophiles rarely act just one occasion and actually usually have dozens of victims over the course of their lives.

Ivey told reporters that Gedert's alleged crimes don't represent the department as an entire .

The canned excuse of Gedert "Is a singular case and a nasty apple," falls in need of explaining away this alleged crime because the Jacksonville Sheriff's office is rife with criminals.

As points out, Gedert was the fifth Jacksonville Sheriff's Office employee arrested this year, four of whom were police or corrections officers, Ivey said.

That includes two Jacksonville corrections officers arrested in March after a disabled inmate was beaten within the Duval County jail, the Sheriff's Office reported.

It is a tragic day when cops those who claim to guard us - are caught preying on society's most vulnerable.

There are tons of sad days as this example plays out sort of a broken record, over and once again .

Pedophiles often hunt down positions of power and authority over children in order that they are during a position to abuse.

Priests, teachers, coaches, cops , counselors, et al. are just a few of the fields during which pedophiles will plan to gain employment.

It's not the primary time we've reported on cops raping kids.

As TFTP has reported, a study exposed the startling incontrovertible fact that cops are arrested about 1,100 times a year, or roughly three officers charged a day .

Many of those arrests are over unspeakable sex crimes.

"Police crimes aren't uncommon," the study's lead researcher Philip M. Stinson concluded.

"Our data directly contradicts a number of the prevailing assumptions and therefore the proposition that only alittle group of rotten apples perpetrate the overwhelming majority of police crime." Although nearly 60 percent of the crimes "Occurred when the officer was technically off-duty," Stinson wrote, "a good portion of those so-called off-duty crimes also lies within the context of police investigation and therefore the perpetrator's role as a policeman , including instances where off-duty officers flash a badge, a politician weapon, or otherwise use their power, authority, and therefore the respect afforded to them as a way to commit crime."

According to a report from WaPo, in cases involving allegations of sexual assault , 72 percent of the officers were fired, and quite 80 percent resulted in convictions, the study found.

There were 422 reported cases of forcible and carnal abuse , 352 cases of forcible fondling and 94 sodomy cases over the seven years of the study, which Stinson called "Larger than expected supported the prevailing research." the info search turned up 174 samples of male officers arrested in cases of "Driving While Female," during which women drivers were harassed or assaulted.

About 82 percent of these cases led to convictions.

Despite the high rate of conviction, the sentences handed out are insultingly low.
