    An openly gay sheriff's deputy in South Florida who fought homophobia within the police department was actually a calculating sex offender who attacked illegal immigrants, according to court documents.

    Jonathan Bleiweiss, 29, allegedly targeted the immigrants because they were afraid to go to the police, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel said, citing the records released Tuesday.

    Authorities say he scared at least eight different men he pulled over during traffic stops into performing sex acts with him, and demanded their phone numbers and contact information.

    He'd then put on the act of a scorned lover when they stopped returning his messages, court documents show.

    Bleiweiss was arrested Monday on 14 charges, including sexual battery by an authority figure and stalking, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

    His attorney, Eric Schwartzreich, contends there is no "physical evidence to support the allegations" by "undocumented aliens," the paper said.

    Bleiweiss was removed from patrol duty last month, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

    Jonathan was a roommate of a friend of mine. I met him occasionally when visiting the friend. He seemed to be a very nice fellow. The report in the local newspaper contained a link to the affidavit filed to obtain the arrest warrant. I read it and was struck by how similar all of the different alleged incidents were...same words, same actions...the thought crossed my mind that it might be a set up by the illegal aliens. Perhaps one was angry and arranged friends to help set up the deputy. I have no facts to back that up...it was simply a thought that crossed my mind. In any event, we need to give the guy the benefit of the doubt...even a deputy is innocent until proven guilty

    A set up by illegal aliens?

    Are you kidding me?

    So they met at the club house after school and organized this whole debacle. Hmmm, sounds sensible.

    Well I saw on the local news last night that an officer somewhere did the same thing with women. He pulled them over and sexually assaulted them, and of course they were afraid to alert authorities because of possible repercussions.

    Nice to see the police are getting their's. I'm so glad my tax money goes toward their salaries so they can rape people as they patrol.

    This was the opening paragraph to the story?
    WTF?
    Even if this guy is guilty the homophobia of this story rips right off the page
    Leave to FAUX News to write a piece like this

    Good thing we have the cops and military so you can write your dumbass comments like this. What's too bad is when you need the cops, that this post doesn't automatically pop up for them, so when you are crying about how your boyfriend hit you or someone stole your stereo, they could ask you about how much you hate them.

    I'm not sure what you do, but I doubt it's a job that if someone in your career does it that it's part of the headline. A guy could have been a cop 20 years ago and commit a crime today and the headline is "Former cop..."

    There are over 675,000 sworn cops in the US... and when one is a perv and does something stupid it makes the headlines nationwide and people like you make comments generalizing all cops. The good thing is when you need help, you'll still call 911 screaming for it... and we'll still help you.

    Is it wrong that when I read that I was thinking to myself, "This actually sounds like it would be a great porn flick"?
    /Seriously though that is messed up.

    I doubt very seriously if this Sheriff Deputy becomes the poster child for the great men and women in law enforce who actually do a great job any more than he would be the poster child for gay men.

    We have sick and depraved men and women in all walks of life. They are every where it's just sad when things like this happens. When you prey on those who do not have a voice. It just doesn't get any lower than that.

    It's that old saying when one person doesn’t something wrong in the family it's makes the whole family looks bad and in the case we got a double WHAMMY!icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

    My heart really goes out to them victims as well. Can you imagine how powerless you would have to feel to beg some one to stop assaulting you and they won't. Given that this turns out to be true!

    I just read this story. And because of these charges, at least 14 current DA cases where he's a witness are likely to fall apart.

    Totally the kind who give cops a bad name. Hope he has plenty of time to contemplate his self-loathing sitting in prison.

    That is was soooo tragic about this matter, because there could be guys locked up who should not be and there could be those who really should be in jail could have there convictions over turned! Good lord.

    I know in Oz there are networks (many religus) That help illegal immigrants to connect, and support each other. They are even very well informed.

    So I don't see why it would be any diffrent in the US of A. Not sure it can be ruled out, not sure it's true either, but it's possible.

    I know that when I had my cell still up it only took one pic,one message and pushing two buttons to let everyone I knew who to give hell to,so it may be unlikely but not impossile that all of them did get together to do something.

    So much judgement before the guilty verdict. Go the land of the free!

    Are we faster to pass judgement because he's gay? Maybe. These forums get pretty judgemental pretty fast.

    Wow! The victim said that Jonathan said, "Quiero tu leche/I want your milk." Poor guys. I have sweated my ass off plenty of times when stopped by the police. An erection would be the last thing possible. How in the hell did they manage to get one? They should have farted while he was down their blowing them. icon_biggrin.gif

    That's really awesome, you sitting there putting words in my mouth and drawing all kinds of conclusions based on a deadpan comment I made that may have been a bit thoughtless, I can admit that. But I really intended no harm and I didn't mean to generalize. Where the hell did I say anything about the military? I didn't. The XXXXville police department and the US military are two completely different things. Maybe your ego's creating a bit of a communication barrier.

    Maybe talk with me via a pvt message before you attack me. I'm a reasonable guy, I can admit when I'm wrong. However, since you decided to attack and judge me in here, then the comment's staying unless you can talk with me respectfully without blowing a bunch of hot air. Perhaps it's you who should check yourself before you go to jumping to conclusions and making generalization about me which seem to encompass blanket stereotypes of the gay community such as squealing and crying if my boyfriend hit me.. Oh and speaking of which I really don't appreciate you wishing something like domestic violence upon me whether or not it's personal or with the purpose of painting the cops as my potential hero. That could happen...it depends on the cop.

    If you had read my first paragraph you would realize that it's 2 out of 675,000 people. But we all know it's way more than that don't we. People get into these public service positions either because they care about helping others and keeping the streets safe and clean or they want to use their power to exploit others or for alterior motives that aren't in the best interest of the communities they serve. I do believe the latter is very much the exception, but It is still a position which is easily abused if granted to the wrong person. Yes I do hold the cops to a higher standard because if they use poor judgement when they're on the clock the bad guys will feel safer and the law abiding citizens won't feel safe at all.

    That's all I have to say.

    You are posting in a public forum, so why should I private message you? I didn't attack you, nor did I wish for your boyfriend to kick your ass... I see you took offense to that and not the stereo being stolen, so they were both examples of when you could be calling the police.

    I frankly don't care if you take your comment back. You said what you were thinking, and I was calling you out on it. I won't defend a cop who does something illegal, but will defend the profession as a whole when people decide to generalize and stereotype the whole profession, or blow things out of proportion.

    And I know you didn't mention the military, I did. Mainly because both are instrumental in protecting your freedom as I said.

    It's ironic that you want to get all bent out of shape over what I said to you as stereotyping the gay community, but you chose to stereotype all cops as going out and raping on the taxpayer dime. And I think you were the one with the hot air.

    You can dog the cops form your example and this story all you want, or all cops in general if you want, that's your right... just as it's my right to call bullshit on your statements.

    That's all I have to say

    Whatever, arguing on a forum is pointless. Once again, I apologize for my statement, it was a reaction, and not a reflection of my true belief system.

    I still don't agree with the way you addressed me in your initial response and I'm not sure if I fully buy your justifications because the tone of your posts really don't indicate that I should.

    How am i supposed to interpret this.

    Hmmm123What's too bad is when you need the cops, that this post doesn't automatically pop up for them, so when you are crying about how your boyfriend hit you or someone stole your stereo, they could ask you about how much you hate them.


    If you can blow up your interpretation of my exasperated sarcasm as an assault on all officers from the heart. Don't expect me to take the way that this was worded as simply a good natured hypothetical example.

    But it's said and done, not really worth worrying about on either end.
