Just think of the hurt and humiliation he put his victims through. The stress, the cost etc.....

I hope they put his as away for a very long time, painful time

Wester’s actions led prosecutors to drop charges in almost 120 cases that occurred between 2016 and 2018, including one man who lost custody of his daughter as a result of the false arrest.

In October 2017, Benjamin Bowling was falsely charged and arrested by Wester for possessing methamphetamine while driving to the store to pick up diapers, according to the arrest warrant. Florida's child welfare agency had recently awarded Bowling custody of his daughter after being released from prison on a DUI conviction, but as a result of the false arrest, he lost custody of the child.

People would consent, because they didn't have anything in the vehicle. That is until that ******* pos planted it!

A lot of cops all over the US would like to rip this guy apart. Glad the FDLE was able to nail him. What a POS.

One of the worst things that can happen in law enforcement is an officer that is dishonest. That officer throws the shadow on every other officer in the profession. If this officer did what he is accused of he needs to be convicted and sentenced to whatever the maximum sentence is, without any possibility of early release or parole. He is a disgrace to the profession and to human beings everywhere.

Additionally this officer now burdens the judicial system with review and action on every case he was involved with.

Then there are those people wrongfully convicted and incarcerated that deserve to be made whole, which is impossible. You can’t restore lost freedom.

Watch the video I posted, he calls a K9 officer to "walk" the car if you don't consent. Either way drugs WERE going to be found in your car, consent or not

They've already reversed 119 victims cases. I'm sure a civil suit is on the way; can't blame them

If any of the victims had a job that required a security clearance they would have been fired and lost their job. A really big financial hit.

That's another aspect. The dog handler can say the dog "alerted" and no one else could say it's a lie or truth, because there's no consistent signal such a dog gives, so it's very subjective. So they can have probable cause simply by saying the dog alerted any time they like.

The legal and civil suit fallout will be similar to what is occurring in Houston. Our society is centered around honesty and trust. When that fails, the delicate republic will fail. It is good to see these criminals caught and prosecuted. People in positions of trust and power that blatantly violate their oath need to be dealt with swiftly and justly. This goes for politicians as well.

I couldn't get the link to load on my ipad, but I've read of similar stories before.

The fallacy to your argument is video records that will show that the dog alerted the same way every time. When dogs are certified it is noted as to the way they alert. Do you even think before you type?

Has anyone noticed - How ptitty is so enormously ANTI-POLICE...?!?!?

He is always on a rant about law enforcement - no matter if there is wrong doing or not....
I don't condone corrupt cops, but I certainly see the continued attack of police by this Antifa member....

P-titty = Antifa

I understand your point but drugs WERE going to be found in that car, dog or not. That's the problem

Yep, for a minute there I thought that POS “retired” ******* from Houston had found a new job in FL.

Great wake up call. I’ve never been asked, but always figured I would give consent since I have nothing to hide. I believe I’ll go with the “ get a warrant” approach now.

I suspect a lot of people are like me: extreme on both ends of the spectrum, with no middle ground. I am very much pro po po because it’s a thankless job and they protect us. The case in Ferguson, MO is a prime example where I have no doubt that the cop was truthful and the dead thug needed to be dead.

On on the other extreme, I would like to see this POS and the one in Houston get maximum punishment. Lets go with adding up all of the sentences of his victims, double it, and give him that. CONSECUTIVELY.

Try him, and if he's guilty, give him life in prison. No excuses for behavior like this.

Exactly. Trust in law enforcement is of paramount importance.

This guy appears to been targeting no one in particular but instead fueling his ego as a LEO. He trashed the whole police force he works with and other honest LEO's outside his circle. I hope he gets a very long prison term and the lawyers are lined up outside the courthouse to right the wrongs this POS caused on people he came in contact with.
