17 Baltimore Police Officers Arrested on Extortion Charges

Baltimore’s finest have shown themselves to be Baltimore’s dumbest.  They were making so much easy side money–which for most didn’t amount to more than gas money–through a scam they were running with a local tow and repair shop that they got sloppy…and they got caught! The police commissioner was so outraged by the caper that he made himself available to personally retrieve their badges.

According to local NBC channel WBAL, Majestic Body Shop is owned by two brothers, Hernan Alexis Moreno Mejia and Edwin Javier Mejia, who were paying police officers to drive business to their shop.  The officers would respond to an accident and recommend that the drivers use Majestic Body Shop for towing.  They would also promote the business for all the repair work and tell the driver that Majestic would take care of the insurance claims for them.  Normally, the police officers are supposed to recommend a “city-authorized” company, but they were writing false reports saying that the driver arranged for their own towing.  Then the police officer would show up to the shop to receive their payment–most in the amount of $300.

Federal agents raided the shop and the officers were ordered to meet at the city police academy under the guise of an equipment issue.  The police commissioner, Fred Bealefeld, was there waiting to personally snatch their badges from them.  “I will not tolerate any criminal activity that undermines the integrity of the Baltimore Police Department and the many sacrifices our officers make each and every day,” said Commissioner Bealefeld.  But, where is all this righteousness when police officers are authorizing drug sells in our communities? Has anyone seen The Wire?

In other words, there’s no great, historic, heroic bust here.  Yes!  The officers were wrong, so wrong that they got the attention of the FBI. But, with all the drugs on the street it makes me wonder why this particular crime got the attention of FEDERAL AUTHORITIES.  Could it be that the body shop was owned by Hispanics who owned up to the fact that everyone involved were people they knew from the Hispanic community?  Once again, minorities making themselves the example for the day.

  2. Hi Nice blog. Do you want to guest submit on my very own someday? In that case please let me know by means of e-mail or just reply to this kind of remark since I subscribed to announcements and definately will know should you.

  3. Corrupt police officers are protected by residents living ib drug-infested communities. Dealing drugs/soliciting to prostitution are ghetto-approved crimes. Residents view corrupt cops as one of them.

    A married D.A.R.E officer was terminated b/c he was caught either soliciting to prostitution or he solicited an undercover officer posing as a prostitute. He was suspended without pay for a year. There was a town hall meeting where so many ghetto residents attended and demanded that this officer be reinstated. Ordinarily, ghetto folks hate cops b/c they are criminals. But since this cop committed a ghetto-approved crime. These types of things occur all day, everyday in the ghetto among ghetto folks.

    Corrupt police see nothing wrong with illegal activity since they follow the urge to participate in it. And earn extra dough. It it only takes $300 for cops to , it shows you exactly what police will do for a buck. Personally, I could do without these types patroling our streets.
