Ex-Mo. Sheriff Gets 18 Months, Snapped Pictures of Womens’ Breasts During Illegal Searches

Former sheriff of Worth County, Mo. Neal Wayne “Bear” Groom was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months in prison followed by a year of supervised release for violating the civil rights of several women by getting them to expose parts of their body, according to a statement from the Justice Department.

Following an FBI probe,  Groom pleaded guilty on August 17 to coercing women into exposing body parts to him, in violation of Fourth Amendment protections from unreasonable search and seizure. Groom also admitted to taking photographs of the women’s exposed or partially covered breasts.

Groom often said he was looking for domestic violence injuries or drug injection marks to force women into revealing their flesh, though he admitted in the plea that he conducted the searches for no legitimate law enforcement purpose, according to the Justice Department.

U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri Beth Phillips said in a statement:  “We will not tolerate law enforcement officers who take advantage of the individuals whom they are sworn to protect.   Such individuals shake the public’s confidence in law enforcement and thus harm not only the victims they target but also the community at large.”

FBI Arrests NYPD Cop For Abusing Position

Nobody f–ks with Admir Kacamakovic’s cousin’s place.

That’s what Kacamakovic, a seven year veteran of the New York Police Department, told a patron of his cousin’s Brooklyn bar in the 62nd Police Precinct, according to the New York Post.

On duty and donning a full uniform, Kacamakovic assaulted, pepper sprayed, handcuffed and illegally detained a patron involved in a dispute over a parking spot in front of the bar in 2008, according to an FBI affidavit by agent Warren Y. Chiu.

Another individual was assaulted with pepper spray by Kacamakovic during the incident, according to the affidavit.  FBI agents arrested and charged Kacamakovic with civil rights violations.

Federal authorities are also accusing Kacamakovic of obtaining information from an FBI computer database regarding his cousin, who was the focus of a federal narcotics trafficking probe, for which he later pleaded guilty to in July 2010,  according to an FBI affidavit.  He is also accused of obtaining information from law enforcement data base on the individual involved in the parking dispute after that individual filed a formal complaint against the officer.

Kacamakovic was charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors.
