‘Most Wanted Deadbeat’ Joseph Stroup Found After 20 Years …

Joseph Stroup was ordered to pay child support after he divorced his wife in 1989. The judge ordered him to pay just $100 a month to his ex-wife, but Stroup claimed he was medically disabled and jobless, according to the Calgary Herald. The judge at the time was accommodating and even lowered his monthly payments to just $14.

Stroup, however, allegedly didn’t make the payments, and by 1998 an indictment was filed against him in federal court, according to the Associated Press. The southwest Michigan man wasn’t broke by that point. In fact, he sold an internet business for over $2 million in 1996. Then, he allegedly fled town.

After being wanted for nearly two decades for failure to pay child support, Stroup was found in Alberta, Canada, under the name Joop Cousteau. Restaurant owner Scott Winograd was handed paperwork by Stroup with the name Joop Cousteau on it after Stroup allegedly claimed that

Armed School Officer Resigns After He Did Nothing During Parkland Shooting

A school resource officer was armed during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas and didn’t take action. Officials believe that Scot Peterson was armed during the Valentine’s Day massacre and failed to disarm the shooter’s weapon, according to The New York Daily News. That shooting took the lives of 17 people.

This information came to light when video surfaced of the incident. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel relayed that Peterson is seen standing outside the building for about four minutes. Inside, alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz was firing students and faculty with an assault rifle for approximately six minutes.

“Never went in,” Israel explained in a press conference on Thursday. “What I saw was a deputy arrive at the West side of building 12, take up a position and he never went in.”

Israel, who has been outspoken following the shooting, believes that Peterson should have went inside the building and faced the attacker. “Went in,” Israel

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens Indicted with Felony Invasion of Privacy After Affair

Eric Greitens, the GOP Governor from Missouri, has been indicted on a charge of first degree felony invasion of privacy on Thursday, according to the Missouri court system. He has been charged in St. Louis with knowingly photographing a woman “in a state of full or partial nudity, without the knowledge and consent” of said woman and “in a place where a person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy.”

This news comes on the heels of looming allegations of sexual misconduct and blackmail after the governor admitted to an affair last month, according to CNN. However, Greitens maintains that there has been no crime, just a lapse in judgment in his personal life.

“As I have said before, I made a personal mistake before I was governor. I did not commit a crime,” Greitens said in a statement released on Thursday. “With today’s disappointing and misguided political decision, my

Backlogged Rape Kits Are Finally Being Tested. Now What? | Crime …

As social awareness of the ubiquitousness of sexual assault becomes a discussion topic accross the country, a far more obscure issue pertaining to the widespread mishandling of sexual violence is now receiving some much-needed attention. Decades worth of rape kits, which number in the tens of thousands, are finally being tested. But now a bigger question is presenting itself: what are the next steps in dealing with the results? An extensive Washington Post report by writer Jessica Contrera details the substantial issues surrounding the rape kits.

Rape kits are essentially a collection of evidence obtained by investigators from a victim shortly after a sexual assault occurs that contain photographic and DNA evidence. Because there were no national requirements on how this evidence should be handled or tested (leaving individual police departments to decide how to manage them), an overwhelming amount of rape kits began piling up, with a substantial

Cops Let Intoxicated Paramedic Off The Hook Before He Causes Fatal Crash

A paramedic from Indiana was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and with reckless homicide last week for allegedly causing an accident which killed a couple. Tron Gorbonosenko, 40, was off-duty and allegedly driving his Ford Mustang with a blood alcohol level of .17 last month when the crash occurred, according to WNDU.

Don and Angie Kaczmarek, two local business owners, were inside a Honda Odyssey van when they were hit. Both died at the scene. Gorbonosenko was critically injured but released from a hospital about a week later.

Now, details are emerging that reveal that three police officers allegedly encountered Gorbonosenko before the crash, to investigate him for another fender bender. According to the Herald Argus, the cops investigated him just 90 minutes before the Kaczmarek couple was killed. That publication obtained a tort claim notice which accuses the police officers of “failing to perform their statutory
