Cop Gets $98,000 of Taxpayer Money After Raping an Immigrant, Meanwhile Innocent Citizens are Locked Up

An internal affairs investigation ensued soon after.

DNA samples from Graves’ bullet-proof vest confirmed that there had indeed been sexual contact.

In March 2014 Graves was arrested and imprisoned in the Santa Clara County Main Jail, but he continued to be on the department’s pay roll until he was fired last week.

It is estimated he has received at least $98,000 since his arrest.

This money was, of course, taken out of taxpayers’ pockets.

The case illustrates how fundamentally flawed the criminal “justice” system is, given that it allowed this officer to still receive all that cash after being charged.

Meanwhile, ordinary citizens who don’t enjoy government privilege are locked up, with their lives permanently ruined, for such minor offenses as possessing cannabis.

Sometimes citizens are framed by cops just so cops can meet quotas and fill cages in for-profit prisons. The more arrests cops can make, the more they score points back at the department and become eligible for career boots and monetary awards.

In one case, they falsified evidence against a man and actually coerced him into confessing to a crime he never committed, according to reports. That man was Rodney Roberts, who then spent the next 18 years torn apart from his family and trapped in a lonely prison cell.

We guess the cops who framed him slept comfortably at night with their own families and received praise from their communities for being “heroes,” while Rodney endured all manner of horror and abuse.

DNA testing just recently proved that Rodney was innocent, as he maintained all along, and he was released. But that will never bring back the nearly 20 years that he lost in life, for doing absolutely nothing at all.
