The mainstream media has been hellbent on portraying the brave men and women of law enforcement as degenerate, violent fringes of our modern society.
This is, of course, simply not true as anyone with any real experience with America’s police force can tell you. The law enforcement agents of our nation have a particularly dangerous and difficult task at all times, and not only when encountering social justice warriors and Antifa thugs.
In recent years, however, a new threat has emerged for our police officers in the form of a weaponized court of public opinion. Particularly at risk are officers who have been forced to make the unfathomable decision to discharge a weapon in the line of duty. In recent history, these public servants have been chastised and isolated as monsters who prey on a particular demographic within our society…at least according to the social justice/media “warriors” and the mainstream media miscreants who continue to prop them up.
While there are certainly bad apples in any profession, including law enforcement, there are always a disproportionate amount of good guys out there making up the difference. Such is the case of one officer in Massachusetts who recently was forced to take his superiors to court over their special treatment of a specific perpetrator.
“Massachusetts Trial Court officials and state police are defending their actions after a trooper filed suit alleging that top police commanders disciplined him and forced him to revise an arrest report for a judge’s daughter.
“In response to the suit filed Tuesday by Trooper Ryan Sceviour, state Trial Court officials say Dudley District Court Judge Timothy Bibaud never discussed the arrest of his daughter, Alli Bibaud, with court officials or state police.
“Trooper Sceviour’s lawsuit alleges that after he arrested Bibaud for driving under the influence near Worcester last month, he was told to revise the arrest report.
“In the initial arrest report, Sceviour wrote that Bibaud told officers she got drugs in exchange for sex and she offered Sceviour sex in exchange for leniency.
“Two days after Bibaud’s arrest, the lawsuit alleges that a trooper came to Sceviour’s house and took him to meet with top police officials. There, Sceviour says, he was told to falsify records and remove the references to sex and Bibaud’s father so as not to embarrass the judge.”
The age old tale of police corruption, specifically stemming from raging nepotism, has been a common trope in fictional representations of wayward policemen for decades. While there are certainly well documented cases of such horrific injustice, there are very few examples of officers employing the judicial system to attempt a remedy.
Sceviour’s bravery in the face of his colleague’s corruption is not only a wonderful reminder of the justice-minded individuals who find their calling in police work, but it also serves as a shining example of a public servant putting others first. In this case, Ms. Bibaud is certainly in a position where her life choices are not conducive to her future, and forced leniency on the young woman will do very little to correct her path.
In that way, Sceviour has gone far above and beyond his normal civic duty by attempting to correct this injustice.
