Skip to comments.Deputy Received Complaints One Year Before Arrest (Racial Profiling Ignored)

The complaints against Broward County Deputy Jonathan Bleiweiss began more than a year before he was arrested on sexual assault charges.
An Oakland Park priest sent an email to the mayor, city commissioners and sheriff officials, informing them of a deputy that was abusing the homeless people who attended his churchs soup kitchen.
Father Bob Daudill had even posted a flier inside the All Saints Catholic Mission soup kitchen with Bleiweiss picture on it, warning the homeless to avoid that deputy, according to The Miami Herald.
Daudill sent his email in June 2008. Apparently nothing was done about it.
Not even an investigation.
In fact, nine months later, Bleiweiss ended up receiving the BSOs 2008 Employee of the Year award for the Oakland Park District.
It wasnt until an attorney contacted Fort Lauderdale police in April 2009, informing them about a Broward deputy who used his authority to fondle illegal immigrants, that an investigation took place.
Five months later, Bleiweiss was arrested, accused of coercing at least eight illegal immigrant males into oral sex or risk deportation.
The openly gay deputy would allegedly drive the streets looking for Hispanic men to pull over. He would ask for proof of residency, and if they didnt have it, ask for their leche, slang for semen.
He would pat them down and fondle them. He would make crude comments. He would demand their cell phone numbers and begin sending them text messages.
Meanwhile, his superiors thought he was doing an excellent job. Their only complaint about him was that he had horrible handwriting.
Other than that, he received a one-day suspension in June 2008 the same month Father Bob sent his complaint for improperly reporting an illness.
He was also featured in the South Florida Blade, a local gay oriented newspaper, after receiving his Employee of the Year award.
In the article, he was celebrated as a pioneer for gays and lesbians, having endured homophobic taunts from superiors early in his career.
He recalled how one sergeant even referred to him as a sex offender.
While that sergeant was reprimanded, he might not have been that far from the truth.
Disgusting. A real “pioneer,” all right.
Yes: The Government and the media are ignoring stories like these because they dont fit the liberal agenda.
“Has clearchannel and other radio outlets muzzled their hosts?”
I think they are scared of lawsuits from the homosexual version of race hustlers.
Was he black too? A double dip?
When homosexual conduct lapses into forcible rape by men who should be responsible, a par with Sodom has been achieved.
No way Jose!
(Coming from a retired donut-eater who has actually worked Internal Affairs!)
Yes, you are missing something.
We’re in the midst of a battle a million times as important as this case, and, THANK GOD, the radio ‘gods’ have their weapons trained on our enemies there.
If we loose that battle, this one won’t matter a hill of beans.
I have no illusions about cops, the whole law enforcement thingy....
In fact I worked in prolly the most corrupt Jurisdiction in the USA (see my homepage). But covering for a pervert? (Unless he was related to management).
True, cops be sensitive to those who have a alternate 'life style', i.e. any copper who happened upon lesbians doing the Wild Thing and who didn't quietly advise his peers via a modified APB of the action going on, would be shunned - abused. even to the extent of bad mouthing him to the groupies.
Again I don’t expect them to spend an entire show on this kind of thing but to totally ignore it especially given the added context and contrast of the recent Gates incident leaves me to wonder what is going on. When a small incident in Cambridge gets blown up so big even before the President comments on it and then have such a huge case in FL be totally ignored? This is not even difficult. This one I don’t understand. It should be on all major media including major conservative media. It isn’t like we can’t deal with more than one example of liberal hypocrisy at a time.
Why do conservatives ignore them? Drudge had link to this for one day and but he ran a gay exorcism video for nearly a week. Just troubling patterns. This is allowing the media echo chamber to have only one voice and that is the sexual activist voice and while I do not expect a devotion to such things. I do expect that when big controversial stories like this occur that they be at least be brought up. This is just an example of journalistic malpractice?
Look, not to be a smartass (again), but the health care thing is so huge, directly affecting every American, and millions of others around the world, that this story doen’t rate a shadow of a mention.
