The country is focused on the ever-growing pile of bodies supplied by cops that shoot unarmed people. Cops have killed US citizens at a rate of three per day since the New Year. It turns out the complete lack of accountability within police departments has created a totally different type of victim: molested children.
Aaron Woodford Barnes, a Lake Wales, FL cop was arrested for 4 counts of sexual activity with a minor and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The victim is 17. According to the victim, Barnes asked her to babysit his son when she was 16, gave her wine, and started the seven-month sexual “relationship.” The victim states the sex was consensual; however the Police Chief pointed out that a 16-year-old cannot consent to a 37-year-old. Barnes denies the sex, but admits there are inappropriate messages from her on his phone.
Just in the last seven days:
James Edwards of Miami-Dade was arrested a second time. This time it was for 12 counts of child pornography. Last August he was arrested for lewd and lascivious conduct. He is accused of luring two underage boys to his home under the pretense of having the boys do some landscaping. He then allegedly gave the boys marijuana and Molly (a designer drug) before masturbating in front of them.
