Just the type guy we need patrolling our streets for bad guys.
Although Luckhurst was able to have this suspension overturned, it's reported that he has a second indefinite suspension awaiting appeal from June 2016. Reports claim he and another male officer are accused of intentionally defecating in the women's bike patrol office restroom, smearing brown contents over the toilet seat and leaving defecation in the stall.
What’s this guy’s obsession with poop?
Tennessee sheriff's deputy indicted on 44 charges including rape, sexual battery amid ongoing lawsuits

A Chattanooga-area sheriff's deputy has been charged with more than 40 counts ranging from rape and sexual battery to oppression and extortion.
Daniel Wilkey, 26, was indicted on 44 charges stemming from allegations of inappropriate behavior and assault while he was working for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, the Associated Press reports.
Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond told news outlets he was notified on Tuesday that a grand jury had indicted Wilkey, AP reports.
Wilkey has been named, along with other HCSO deputies, in four lawsuits that accuse him of misconduct during traffic stops. The alleged misconduct ranges from a forced baptism, groping underage girls and an illegal, forcible drug search, AP reports.
In July, dashboard camera footage appeared to show Wilkey and another deputy involved in a strip search of a man on the side of the road in Soddy-Daisy.
Wilkey faces an excessive force lawsuit related to the stop in which the defendant says the effects of the search required treatment for anal contusions and surgery on a previously-untreated hernia.
Attorney Robin Flores told reporters this summer that the man shown in the video is his client James Myron Mitchell. The suit alleges the anal cavity search was unlawful.
The video also shows a deputy repeatedly punching and kneeing the man. In the affidavit the arresting officer says he continued striking after Mitchell was on the ground "until compliance was gained."
In October, a suit against Wilkey and the other deputy was filed in Hamilton County.
At the same time, Flores filed another suit on behalf of a woman who said Wilkey forced her into a baptism in a Soddy-Daisy lake in February instead of taking her to jail.
Shandle Marie Riley said Wilkey followed her to a friend's house from a gas station around 10 or 11 p.m. on Feb. 6, where he initiated a traffic stop, the suit states.
He told her he believed she was in possession of meth, and started to perform a search during which he groped her and ordered her to remove and shake out her bra, according to the lawsuit.
In her car, he found a single marijuana cigarette, which she admitted to having, the suit said.
Then, Wilkey told Riley she was a "piece of shit" and asked her if she was "saved" and believed in Jesus Christ, the suit went on. God, Wilkey allegedly told her, had been speaking to him throughout the interaction.
Wilkey then offered to keep her out of jail if she let him baptize her in Soddy Lake, in nearby Soddy-Daisy, the lawsuit claims.
The lawsuit says Wilkey escorted her to the Lake and stripped down to his underwear, while she refused to take off her clothes.
Deputy Jacob Goforth arrived at the lake in time to witness the ritual as Wilkey dunked Riley beneath the water, the suit says.
The lawsuits both detail years of reported abuses at the hands of Hamilton County deputies, alleging a culture of misconduct and an atmosphere from the sheriff down that led employees "to believe that abusive behavior would not be properly monitored, investigated nor punished and was tantamount to a policy of the county."
Wilkey was arrested and taken to the Hamilton County jail. His attorney did not respond to a request for comment, AP reported.
Hamilton County District Attorney General Neal Pinkston's office declined to comment. The sheriff said in a statement that he will cooperate with Pinkston's office and would schedule a hearing to address Wilkey's employment status.
I wonder if the next precinct he works at will have this information.
* police execute no knock warrant
* police shoot 16 year old, police shoot 3 year old
* police only stop shooting after 16 yells about the 3 year old in the other room
* police execute warrant because they knew there were drugs in that house in the past
* police used guns on a 16 year old who was just trying to protect his sister
* police told the 16 year old it was his fault she got shot
* the 16 year old is now in juvenile detention
MIDLAND, Tx. (KOSA) -- The Department of Public Safety is investigating after a 3-year-old was shot in an officer-involved shooting.
The girl’s family reached out to CBS7 and told us this all started when officers came into their house without announcing themselves.
Texas Rangers said they’re not releasing any details for now on how a 3-year-old ended up in a Lubbock hospital with a bullet wound in her back.
“She’s in a lot of pain,” the girl’s father, Luis Gomez said. “She just won’t stop crying, she’s shaking. She just keeps screaming every five minutes. Doctors said it’s going to be some kind of trauma. Like she’s going to be traumatized over it.”
But the child’s father said his 16-year-old son was home alone with the girl when something crashed into their window.
“And he heard the front door kicked in, so he thought someone was robbing us or something,” Gomez said. “So, he runs over there. I guess he had an object in his hand, I don’t know what he had or what. And when he ran that way, they just opened fire on him.”
Gomez said his son was struck in the arm when he took cover.
He said the teenager kept yelling that his sister was in the other room and when the gunfire stopped, she walked out with blood on her.
“They told my son this is your fault,” Gomez said. “It’s your fault she got shot. This is all your fault.”
Gomez said police have raided his house before and found drugs.
However, he said while the officers had a search warrant, they didn’t announce themselves when they came in.
According to Gomez, his son is now in a juvenile detention.
Why was he arrested? Oh his last name was Gomez? I see why now.
Cop Shoots Handcuffed Man to Death in Front Seat of Police Vehicle
handcuffed and wearing a seatbelt? JFC
I'm going to guess the guy was fucked up on only god knows what and probably bit the cop or something like that and the cop overreacted bc he was mad. How dare you bite him, right? That's all I can guess. Really looking forward to the "I was in fear for my life!" card when the victim was already cuffed and in a seat belt in the police car.
Update to this story...
Corporal Michael Owen Jr. is being charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and associated weapons charges in the fatal shooting of William Green.
Well I'll be damned.
Why arent these people working during off hours hmmmm
Unless they're just talking about the cops standing around
How does it take 9 years for this to get settled?
Wait, is the question why aren't people out working at night? Maybe life has worked out for them the correct way?
This is a failure of the justice system
I want to say unbelievable but I'm honestly not surprised at this point.
we should be more surprised if he caught time
I'm surprised it even went to trial. Progress?
My head said don't read the article. I did it anyway. Now I'm even more pissed. He avoided jail time because "you know what happens to policemen in jail" but he stopped being a cop the minute he raped someone.
Humanity is a mistake.
has this gotten coverage on TMB?
on-duty police officer was passed out in his vehicle in the middle of the road, car in gear but foot on brake. he admits he went home to drink during his shift and had a BAC of .43 at the hospital.
chief/sherriff guy demotes him rather than fires him because of how remorseful he was or some bullshit. i guess in the last day, the chief himself has resigned. still a bunch of horseshit, even how they sort of intentionally didn't show the cop in the body camera footage outside of one brief moment.
.43 while driving with a gun on his hip isn't criminal activity if you're a cop on duty. And cops are appalled that and wonder why a large portion of the community doesn't like or trust them.
Yup this was in my town. Cop who found him fucked up by the numbers and/or covered for him. DA was afraid to hurt his numbers so didn't proceed with charges
Police unions diving head first into the thin blue line stereotype is really unnerving
They are a gang. It's that simple.
That whole thing is so disturbing. That's a police union making public threats to their boss. The mayor should fire the entire police leadership and bring in outside people to run them, not hardos that came up through the ranks. They need a complete overhaul. I realize that's impossible bc of the very union making the threats though. idk what the answer is but that's not ok.
That account is absolutely awful. I've seen it over the past year and they do not mince words with their tweets about who they hate.
Yea I've seen it several times lately. If I talked like that to my boss, I'd be fired on the spot. It really is unnerving how above everyone they feel they are. They know they can't be fired and therefore don't give a fuck. I'd love for the Mayor to find a way to clean house. I really don't know how they can though. This is a case where unions are awful.
My God. That’s fucking disgusting on every level. Guess they didn’t kill the guy, so that’s good.
What the fuck.
Oh and fuck whoever wrote that article’s soft-peddling headline by the way.
Fuck this makes me angry
I still get a kick about being told on here that I exaggerate the dangers of raising a young brown man in America., I’ve had the conversation with my son about how to act around cops.
"Their excuse (for taking Butler into custody) was that they thought the bus was being held hostage.
I'm sure these cops will get like 30 days paid leave or something as punishment
I've lived a lifetime of this. Never close to this extent, but the fear of being a POC around police is very real.
I will say that what we see now is probably worse that 25 years ago and drawing closer to the Civil Rights Era. Not in the sense of segregation, but cameras everywhere are showing the horrors we have had like never before. Plus, the talent pool for cops seem to be at it's lowest in my lifetime.
That'll teach them.
Idk if it's better or worse, not my place to try to judge that. We definitely see more of it now bc of the camera phones and that's a good thing. Police violence against POC was a huge thing in the 90s in hip hop. Back then it was brushed away as them making up lies. That stuff didn't really happen. 25 years later we're able to see on video what they were telling us then.
I was a freshman in college when Rodney King happened. Even as a young black man I couldn't wrap my head around it.
The problem is that 30 years later nothing, including the punishments for that type of behavior, has changed.
The only thing I can think of that has changed at all is our ability to hold police (somewhat) accountable. And that's entirely due to technological advances and not at all due to police reform. And that's the problem.
The ability is there, unfortunately it's often not implemented.
