Florida "cop of the month" rapes woman while on duty

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/fla-month-rapes-woman-patrol-car-hood-cops-article-1.1994103


A Florida Cop of the Month allegedly raped a woman on the hood of his patrol car while he was on duty, police said.

Boynton Beach police arrested their own Stephen Maiorino Thursday for the alleged incident.

The eight-year force veteran — who earned an "Officer of the Month" award in 2010 and appeared on two national TV shows for his all-star cop accomplishments — will be fired, Police Chief Jeffrey S. Katz said in a statement.

Police said the 35-year-old cop picked up a woman earlier this month, raped her while holding a gun and threatened to arrest and kill her.

The nightmare started around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.

A 20-year-old woman was a passenger in a car, but the driver was arrested for DUI, leaving her stranded, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Maiorino, who was on duty, responded to the scene and said he'd take her to police headquarters so her family could pick her up.

2. How does someone like that become a police officer?

There is something very wrong in our law enforcement culture these days and simply offering more training won't fix it.

11. Places Like Florida

 

They seek people like that for the job. Who else would go along with oppressing an entire population?

12. It's a prerequisite.

 

WANTED: Low IQ Cops & MORE

Can I Be a Cop With PTSD?

- They want them slow and slightly warped/damaged. But not too warped/damaged.....

21. Smart and sane people never apply for the job

 

Also departments tend to like to hire a lot of former military...and some of these guys have PTSD.

5. Makes me wonder about that motto ... "To protect and to serve."




Does that mean he was wearing a condom?

Not joking at the victim's expense. In fact I think whenever LEO's, teachers, or
anyone else in a position of authority betrays that authority with the commission
of a felony they should get a more severe sentence than anyone else if found guilty.

7. only fired?

The eight-year force veteran — who earned an "Officer of the Month" award in 2010 and appeared on two national TV shows for his all-star cop accomplishments — will be fired, Police Chief Jeffrey S. Katz said in a statement.


It was rape pure and simple. I think it warrants more than being fired. What about being charged for rape and thrown in Jail ?

8. He has been arrested and charged with multiple counts.

Officer Stephen Maiorino, 35, was charged with armed sexual battery, armed kidnapping and unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior Thursday by the state attorney’s office. Maiorino was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, according to jail records.

9. great

Excellent. I misread the op it would appear. I do not know why the chief of police felt the need to say he would be fired. Sounds like it would be automatic if he was arrested for felony rape.

10. I wouldn't make that assumption. They seem to get away with murder

quite often.

14. How many other crimes did he commit?

Someone who could and would do such an evil act, probably has done other stuff that only he knows about. How many other women did he rape? How many burgleries did he do? How much drugs has he stolen. How many innocent people has he framed? How many times did he falsify a police report of purjure himself in court.

18. No suprise, but he isn't being charged with rape.

He's being charged with 'sexual battery' instead.

Pretty sad to see the city still willing to cut em slack for this heinous of a crime. But considering what else comes from Florida, I can't really say I'm surprised.
