Last month, we did a couple of articles in regards of a former correctional officer turned whistleblower. This article is an update on their situation. We like to think that doing the right thing means being rewarded, this is not the case.
As you maybe aware, the whistleblower’s former department caught onto who they were. Once this happened, they were issued a cease and disist via email. However, the Department of Corrections didn’t stop there. Through a recorded phone call, we were able to verify that the former officer resigned due to ongoing abuse and unethical treatment from their acting captain. The abuse extended to not only inmates, but to officers the captain did not like.
Recap of the resignation
The officer, who we only identify as “whistleblower,” resigned in December, 2019. Through bank records, we saw what they identified as “the final straw.” The department deposited their paycheck into their account in late November. However, early December the same department somehow withdrew their entire paycheck out of the account. As of this time, the bank has refused to comment in regards to how this happened.
Further documentation has revealed that the department intended to place the officer on what they called “secondary” payroll, a move often done as a form of punishment. However, this never happened. What transpired can only be described as sadistic. Once the pay was removed, the captain, as verified in audio recorded calls, placed the officer back on “primary” pay. By doing this, it negated the secondary payroll, thus making it where the officer got no pay until January. The targeting didn’t end there.
Since leaving the department, the former officer has been deamed completely unhirable. Living on only the money saved in their bank account, the noose of time has a constant effect on them. Allegedly, the department has fabricated the situation, claiming the individual was terminated for violating a policy, one that we have already shown to not exist. We, as a media platform, have been assisting the whistleblower, locating potential places of employment in their area. At this point, we have began assisting with their bills when able.
This entire series has opened a floodgate into what happens to those who refuse to conform. It demonstrates a warning to anybody who seeks to be in law enforcement: “join the blue brotherhood or pay the price.” Sadly, this individual’s convictions caused them to be against this uniformed, unspoken code. However, this isn’t an isolated event. In the past, we have seen similar articles to this. It also demonstrates the amount of power behind these agencies.
