Police corruption has long been a major problem in the United States. Some police officers, of course, turn bad to line their own pockets through ripping off drug dealers and, sometimes, even dealing the stolen drugs themselves. Others try to cover up their own acts of brutality, murder and even torture. And then, there is the third and no doubt largest category, officers who knowingly arrest the wrong man (or woman) for offenses, write them up, and never blink an eye when the prosecutors bring a case against them. In fact, sometimes these corrupt officers will even offer false testimony against the innocent parties in a court of law.

No one group has a monopoly on police corruption. It happens in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans and every major U.S. city and is conducted by officers of all races, creeds and colors.

Casey Gane-McCalla of NewsOne Original brings us the following list of the top 5 most corrupt U.S. police officers of all-time:


5. Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa:

NYPDLouis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa worked for the NYPD, at least they punched a NYPD time clock,  but in reality, they worked for the mafia. Caracappa was a member of the Organized Crime Homicide Unit which meant he investigated the very people he was working for.

In reality, Eppolito and Caracappa took their orders from the Lucchese crime family for whom they served as hitmen as well as moles in the NYPD. In 2006, the two former partners were convicted of racketeering, obstruction of justice, extortion and eight counts of murder and conspiracy. They were sentenced to life in prison. On appeal, they convictions were upheld.


4. Joseph Miedzianowski:

joeJoseph Miedzianowski was a Chicago police officer who is sometimes considered to be the most corrupt cop of all time. Miedzianowski served as both police officer and drug kingpin and used his knowledge of the streets and gangs to shake down drug dealers.

For most of his 22-year career, Miedzianowski ran the Chicago Gangs Unit, simultaneously running his own drug gang. His corrupt run came to an end in 2001 when he was convicted of 10 counts including drug conspiracy and racketeering .



3. David Mack And Rafael Perez:

sugeDavid Mack and Rafael Perez worked together for the infamous LAPD Ramparts division. Oddly enough, they also worked for Suge Knight at Death Row Records and were members of the feared Bloods street gang.

Mack had the audacity to receive the LAPD Medal Of Honor for killing a drug dealer who allegedly pulled a gun on him. But he would also later be convicted of robbing a bank and be implicated in the murder of the rapper, Notorious BIG.

Perez shot and framed an unarmed gang member during his tenure. He also stole eight pounds of cocaine from an LAPD evidence locker. This is not what they teach you at the Police Academy.



Chicago2. Jon Burge:

Jon Burge is in a class of his own. He was a former Chicago Police Department detective who oversaw the torture of hundreds of Black men resulting in false confessions between 1972 and 1991.

Burge would burn suspects with radiators and cigarettes, and “put the juice” to their testicles.

Ironically, Burge was protected by the statute of limitations for his crimes, but was convicted for lying about the torture in January of 2011.


1. Robert Gisevius, Kenneth Bowen, and Anthony Villavaso:

orleansAt the top of our list stand Robert Gisevius, Kenneth Bowen, and Anthony Villavaso. They were members of the New Orleans police department during Hurricane Katrina. The three men were charged with first degree murder for killing 17-year-old James Brissette who was unarmed and innocent when they came across him on the Danzinger bridge while the waters were cresting. Brisette was simply looking for shelter when the cops pounced on him and  – for all intents and purposes — executed him.

Bowen, Gisevius and Villavaso were found guilty of falsifying reports and bringing false prosecution in their conspiracy to cover-up the shooting. They received sentences of 6 to 65 years.

    I and others are and were victims of a corrupt sting operation of which my wife and everyone on her side of the family joined into when my wife Joan Wagar worked at the Multnomah county jail kitchen!

    My wife Joan Wagar and her buddy’s in law enforcement coached our daughters to make false pedophile accusations about me after they murdered my father Don Wagar and they poisoned my mother Valerie Quigley and the police covered up my mother’s 911 call!

    Our daughter admitted in writing after the fact her charges were false!


    Officer Eric Carlson starts calling my wife Joan Wagar by the nickname Mrs Dash in love letters he writes her AFTER she poisoned me with antifreeze, I was a active plasma donor at the time!


    Joan Wagar admits she is a poisoner of a plasma donor in her diary and she also admits to her affair with a cop and admits I cannot get help from police and I cannot get a toxicology test at the hospital!


    After my wife bragged she is a poisoner in her diary and she battered me and her buddy’s in law enforcement assaulted me and covered up my 911 call Joan Wagar writes her infamous denial letter where she denies being a poisoner!
    Everything in her denial letter is a lie, the three men she names off as coworkers are actually the cops she and her daughters were sleeping around with, and at the time Joan Wagar wrote this denial letter one of her daughters was pregnant by one of those officer’s at the time of writing this denial letter!


    My wife brags she is a poisoner and admits she uses antifreeze as poison!
    I was bedridden at the time my wife wrote this, she tossed it at me like a Frisbee knowing I was so badly poisoned that I could not even read it at the time let alone get out of bed to find help!


    The hospital admits I had abominable pain and internal bleeding but fakes not knowing what’s wrong!



    OHSU hospital and police threatening me and covering up all my calls for help, even my 911 calls!
    Sgt Walker of the Portland police admits to covering up my 911 calls and calls for help and is admitting I am not welcome at my hospital.
    Sgt Walker is pretending nothing is wrong with me and is covering up the fact I was poisoned and is ignoring the fact my wife already confessed she is a poisoner and Sgt Walker is ignoring the abominable pain and severe internal bleeding I suffered!



    Police made sure I could not get help from any other hospital as well and no one will take a toxicology test!



    Officer Eric Carlson’s Death Threat He Put On Our Computer!


    Officer Eric Carlson And Joan Wagar Caught On Video Trying To Kill Me They Are Armed With Guns And Recording Devices And Their Caught Hiding In Ambush By My Front Door at 5:45 am and they are armed with guns and recording devices and flashlights and are using hand signals!

    Officer Eric Carlson and her lover my ex-wife Joan Wagar, now Joan Carlson were waiting in ambush on stairs next to my doorway!
    They would have shot me if I had not noticed people were diving behind that van and trailer across the street!

    Officer Eric Carlson stepped into sight after he realized I am not coming out while my wife continued to hide to shoot me if I did step outside, and after officer Eric Carlson got out of sight and in a shooting position my wife stepped away from the stairs and at first walked wanting me to recognize her and then she bolted into a run!

    Joan Carlson had a gun hidden inside her shirt in her left hand and she is recording with her cellphone in her right hand!

    The tall dude in the baseball hat is officer Eric Carlson’s partner Shannon and he is in law enforcement a well and he is not even hiding his face nor is he hiding the fact he wants me dead!

    None of the people in this video live there they were waiting for me to step outside to shoot me!


    Eric Carlson’s Buddy’s Caught Pedofying Me Outside My Home!
    These people were being paid by Portland police to pedofy me outside my apartment!


    Officer Eric Carlson and his partner Shannon brought over a couple of their girlfriends that have children and they were coaching those children to hand around the front of my apartment and officer Eric Carlson and Shannon and the females with them were coaching the children to call me a pedophile in front of my apartment!

    They are staging street theater tactics and staging crimes in front of my apartment and officer Eric Carlson is once again acting as a body double he was dressed up like me that day, and he was outside telling those children to look at his dick and such!

    The children were being coached by those officer’s and by the females with those officer’s to slap my window screen and to repeatedly harass me by ringing my doorbell!

    The children admitted in-between being directed by those officer’s that they were being paid ten thousand dollars to make me look like a bad guy and that I was going to be shot if I went outside to confront them!


    No one will take a complaint from me, all my calls for help are covered up and suppressed by police/local authority’s, and doctors refused me emergency services because of my wife Joan Wagar’s affair with a cop!

    I am not their only victim on average one family member per-year died during my wife Joan Wagar’s use of pills and antifreeze as poison, and three plasma donors lived under Joan Wagar’s roof when she tossed her written confession to using antifreeze as poison at me while I was bedridden!
