  1. It makes me wonder, how long public officials’ antics have been
    swept under the rug before KCE started digging.

    Another fine piece of sleuthing, my friend.

    1. KCSO didn’t dig anything. A complaint was made to RCSO, RCSO won’t investigate their own, so they call in an outside agency.

  2. Is it me or are more cops being outed as POS scumbags?

    Don’t trust cops or minorities. You shouldn’t be picking one side or the other.

  3. Are there any follow ups with this article? I haven’t seen ANY mention of this anywhere on RCSO or Kenosha Sheriffs sites.

    1. It doesn’t matter. We need to support him no matter what he may have done. That is the word of the Lord. Read Romans 13.

  4. When no one wants to be a cop or firemen they scrape the bottom of the barrel. When no one can even pass a physical agility test to be either PD or FD, they also hire whatever they can. Unfortunately.

    1. Your statement is true. I remember 500 applicants taking the written test for Kenosha Police.
      Today it is tough to get 100 to apply. How do you think former KPD Officer Joshua Sylvester was hired? Dig into KCE to read about his disgusting behavior.
      Thanks Obama and Brandon. Evers. Mandela Barnes. Louis Gates. The “Gentle Giant.” Floyd. Jacob Blake. Oh. BLM. Antifa. This list of losers is MUCH longer. These people plus the anti-police media are why no one wants to apply.

  5. And warrants in other counties. Look it up!! Cops or deputies are no better than anyone else. The badge is just a power trip🤣🤣 but kenosha county does have a few great deputies

      1. What did he do? Does anyone he hasn’t been charged with anything? Did Lt. Mike Luell of the RCSO release a statement?

  6. To me, this is bad reporting you don’t have all the facts he hasn’t been charged with anything I can’t find any charges but yet you’re going to report on it? some comments are horrible to judge somebody who puts their life on the line! No statement from Lt. Mike Luell of the RCSO as stated. All the people saying horrible things about this deputy should be ashamed of themselves. Everybody should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

  7. I hired an electrician once who I found out later had a couple of drunk driving convictions. This means all electricians suck and shouldn’t get hired.

  8. Bottom of barrel for hiring most likely. With BLM, not supporting police for decades what else is there to pick from anymore. Departments that had 1000 plus applicants now are lucky to get 100 applicants. This was caused by the hatred of police by certain minority groups that got their way. Sad butctrur.Wake up people!
