More than a Dozen Cops Charged With Rape of Children and Child Pornography Still Working on Force

NEW ORLEANS — A disturbing report has surfaced according to which a police department in New Orleans has not fired more than a dozen officers who have been charged with rape and child pornography.

The charges have occurred within the last year, but it appears that the officers who were charged are still patrolling neighborhoods with loaded guns and are not being convicted.

It is appalling that we are told these people exist to “protect us,” even though they are the same ones being charged with such sickening crimes.

In several cases the officers were not fired but rather placed on something the police are calling “emergency suspension.”

According to a report by the WDSU I-team, these “emergency suspensions” are limited in time and before you know it, the officers charged are back at work again.

One particularly egregious example involves Officer Bradley Wax, who was charged with 38 counts of possessing child pornography.

The crime was so serious that if Wax had not been a police officer, he would have faced more than 500 years in prison upon conviction.

The New Orleans Police Department assured the public that Officer Wax would be disciplined.


But it turns out that Officer Was is still on the job a year after the charges, according to reports.

“It’s incredibly hard to imagine anyone in that capacity would be back working and being paid for it at taxpayer expense,” says Dr. John Penny, a criminologist at Southern University.

Officer Wax isn’t the only one.

Officer Michael Thommassie was charged with aggravated rape and reports indicated that the victim was a child under the age of 10.

      Yeah. And do the math. One of those dudes was 54 years old and a 16 year vet of the force. I mean, this guy is no Colonel Kurtz. Just saying, the physical test for NOPD must not be too difficult if a 38 year-old slob can pass it.

      • Gary Williams Jr.

        actually cops EVERYWHERE have lowered their standards so low, that only a complete moron would fail the “test”. the average cop that gets hired these days, scores between 61-68%! they do NOT WANT anyone who scores higher. if you have an iq, that means you will likely question immoral orders. while the douche bag Rambo wanna bee’s will follow the order without question, because they enjoy the bullying, terrorist behavior they are inflicting on the American people, of ALL COLORS

        Really? Point out specifically WHERE that was mentioned….that
        someone who was not a cop would not get the same treatment as these two
        and would be in jail. It may have been alluded to, but was definitely

  • Dan Crocker

    Just stepped in a pile of dog shit (this web site) by accident. Remember that our society would degrade into anarchy where only the strong survive were it not for the decent men and women who wear the badge with honor. Granted there are bad apples, but most of the time, those bad apples are weeded out by their own. No society is perfect but I would rather live in this one than in some of the third world countries where life can be ended by being burned up in a cage or beheaded along with your buddies because of your religion. Class dismissed.

    • Tamra Louviere

      What a load of bull from a statist moron.

    • wolfenii

      You are as full of dog shit so how would you know if you stepped into more? There is NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD COP. Either they are criminals or they stand by and watch the criminals do their thing and say NOTHING. If there were no cops and people defended themselves, there would be far less crime as society would take care of their own.

      • JWHacket

        What a bunch of fat-bodies. No wonder they’re know as “pigs”.

      Go to https://www.facebook.com/PoliceOfficersRapingKids and take look through the years for your good cops doing their good work…..

    • John Dough

      Weeded out by their own?? The police have shown a pattern of sticking up for their own despite how heinous their crimes are! Until very recently the police could get away with anything and continue to commit crimes behind their badge. The truth is the opposite of what you speak. The police are currently plunging our society into anarchy. Decent cops are few and far between and there is absolutely no checks and balances to ensure the bad apples are weeded out. You read the article, not only did these rapists of children face no legal consequences but they are STILL working. I would rather live in a country where freedom is protected by the state than one where your life can be ended by the sworn officers of the state because of no reason at all. Class is in session, and you need a lesson; Dan Crocker, the man who support the right of the police to rape our children!

    • Don Nasca

      The argument that it’s better too suffer here than somewhere else which is worse is worthless. We are not somewhere else, we are here in America; the land where freedom and justice is supposed to mean something. It no longer means anything except to those who can afford freedom and justice and to those who have connections to get out of jail cards. America is far from the best place to live for average people. I have spent time in Europe and in developing countries without fear or incident. The Police were rarely seen. The people were good natured and supportive to one another. Their governments actually try to do what is right for the average person, not abuse them for profit or power. Our media and government has created a country divided entirely by wealth. The poor can suffer at every turn without hope, they are blamed for everything that is wrong with America. The well-off can do what ever they want. Teacher dismissed.

    • Kacy

      Yeah, good for you. Because cops make up all of America’s wall of defense. No. It’s the government at as a whole. You’re in painful, ignorant, denial if you’re really going to say “but cops are important!!!” and ignore corruption that’s there. They’re suppose protect us and many other cases like this go with minimal punishment. A cop in my town had kiddie porn and is on PAID LEAVE right now. Wait until the corruption reaches you while your guard is completely down. Then you’ll regret your blind following.

  • David Gilbert

    A cop who does this is worse than an ordinary child molester who doesn’t have a badge and a gun and the Louisiana Revised Statutes mandate life imprisonment at hard labour without benefit of probation or parole for rape. The statute doesn’t seem to indicate an exception for police officers.

      Pig apologist or pedo apologist?

  • Schrecklich Kindern

    If and when found guilty, they should be terminated without pay.before found guilty, i see no problem with pay continuing, minus theperks that go with the job, but they absolutely should have to surrender badges and be relieved of all duties and authority until and unless exhonerated. To do otherwise poses a threat to children and the community at large!

      Pig apologist or pedo apologist? I’m thinking pedo

  • Moe Jangles

  • The Rocket Kidz

    There is no immunity for police officers when their actions are outside of police work. So I don’t know what this article is talking about, if they are not being prosecuted, its not cause they are cops. There is something else going on

    If i was an attorney, i would be passing out all of my bussins cards in the prison afer this case is finished. Because you use this foi means of dimissal of cases. Im in the money■

    Police werent made to serve and protect. They were made to enforce and put people in their place. Swine merchant your time is near! F! with me your time will be now!

  • Steven A McGehee

    Well if Guilty they should fry I don’t care what job they do, but folks all I have seen is charges no convictions. You can’t fire them cause they were charged. Oh I guess cause they are cops they are automatically guilty. Everyone else says hey innocent till proven guilty. Yet these cops should be on desk duty with no shield or firearm. Not patrolling the street.

    • Kacy

      Lmao, they’re just convictions because they’re cops. How can someone “sorta have kiddy porn”. Child pornography is a serious thing not to be taken lightly, you pig guarding moron.

  • smackahead

    STOP BITCHING, HOLLYWOOD IS THE KIDDY PORN CAPITAL OF THE WORLD,,,,,,YOU STILL GO TO MOVIES ,,RIGHT?

    WITH 240,000 POLICE BRUTALITY VIDEOS, ON LINE,,,ITS NOT A SURPRISE THAT THEY’RE ALSO FUCKING LITTLE KIDS

  • sam

    smh and some old ass babyboomer was trying to tell me that people today dont respect cops like they deserve

    • The “old ass babyboomer” is probably right.
      If people “respect cops like they deserve” those people would be arbitrarily beating and killing them for sport – the same respect (or lack thereof) that they’ve been showing civilians for so many years now.

    Child porn is bad, but child rape is worse, both are incredibly lucky to even be out of jail, no less working as a police officer. Perpetrators always put themselves in a place where their victims are easily available to them, and as long as they wear a badge they can molest as many children as they want to. Serial perpetrators should be held in jail on a million dollar bail, just as killers are.

  • Mike

    I don’t understand. Maybe I skimmed this article too fast … You’re saying they are charged, but not convicted? Why would you fire someone who hasn’t been found guilty? Just because you throw around trigger words like rape and child porn doesn’t matter – if they are charged, they will be either convicted or not. Having an emergency suspension seems very reasonable when someone is charged of something serious like this. But that can’t be indefinite. The courts will decide their ultimate fate.

    • YouareDumb

      “Throw around trigger words” like they just sorta kinda raped a kid and owned only a little child pornography? Are you a pig apologist or pedo apologist? Both?

    NAAWP NEWS 06-06-2015: 3 killed, 13 wounded in
    Chicago weekend gun violence!

    Three people were killed and at least 13 others have
    been hurt in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.

    The most recent fatal shooting left a 17-year-old boy dead in the Bridgeport neighborhood early
    Saturday.

    Richard Edwards and an 18-year-old man had left a
    party about 2:15 a.m. after they were “involved in an altercation,” according
    to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

    As they were driving in a van in the 700 block of
    West 35th Street, a light-colored SUV pulled up and someone inside opened fire,
    police said.

    Edwards, of the 3900 block of South Lake Park, was
    shot in the armpit and was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

    The man was shot in the hand and shoulder and taken
    to Stroger Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.

    As police investigated, a woman who said she was
    the teen’s mother was a half block away on Halsted, crying and pleading with
    officers to let her see her son’s body, which was covered by a sheet.

    “I just want my child,” she said. “I need to touch
    him. I need to hold him. I need to feel him.”

    Late Friday, a 27-year-old man was discovered
    fatally shot in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

    Juan Ugalde was found unresponsive with a gunshot
    wound to the side of his face just before 10 p.m. in the 2300 block of South
    Washtenaw, authorities said. Ugalde, of the 2800 block of West 21st
    Street, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    A 33-year-old man was shot in the leg and was taken in good condition to Loyola
    University Medical Center. A 26-year-old man was also hit in the leg, and he
    got himself to West Suburban

    A 25-year-old woman was grazed in the shoulder by a stray bullet while she was
    driving in a car on Division past the party, Gaines said. The woman was taken
    to West Suburban Medical Center, where her condition stabilized.

    At the scene of the shooting, police officers cordoned off a section of
    Division Street.

    Several balloons, which said, “the party is here,” were attached to
    the black metal fence surrounding Davis Park, where the party appeared to have
    been held, police said.
