LAPD's Joshua Chong: Got away with murder threats because he has a badge
In exchange for the Orange County District Attorney's office dropping two criminal charges--a felony and a misdemeanor, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) sergeant pleaded guilty to a third misdemeanor count of obsessive phone text harassing a woman who'd spurned his affections.

Thanks to the plea deal, Joshua Jinwook Chong--a 42-year-old Fullerton resident--won't have to pay for threatening to murder his ex-girlfriend and her male friend.

See? This is more evidence that cops*** can break criminal laws in California and escape punishment without even a slap on the wrist. Well, that's not exactly true.

Chong received a gentle, compassionate wrist massage with warmed Kama Sutra oil.

As punishment, he must endure . . . probation, eight whopping hours of community service and a domestic violence prevention class.

***The Cop Protection Plan (CPP) apparently does not extend to U.S. Marines. In March, a marine from Camp Pendleton was sentenced to three years in prison for making criminal threats in a murder plot.

LIKE I SAID Los Angeles WARNED YOU!

Not to Sould Like this Is new, but THiS happens ALL the time in Los Angeles(1992riot), ESPECIALLY TO BLACKS! "MAYBE" SOCAL should put this color thing aside! Because this Is an ongoing issue where POLICE BELIEVE THERE THE LAW and ABOVE it! And They always going to say somebody is a gang member! WHEN THE POLICE is the biggest and MOST RACiST(hents, it comes with the JOB)LOL! After all they get suspended with pay they never get any real punishment for the mistakes, but out to punish the mistaken!

Personally I think the guy should have received a harsher sentence but the reality is he got the same deal anyone else would have. he has no priors and is not a risk to re offend. The DA would rather settle a case than go to trial.

welcome to america where we pretend money, power and connections do not run our country while we point our fingers at other countries that dont give a poop about trying to hide this, knowing, their civilians are far more intelligent that most americans, they wouldnt even try to get away with what the usa does to its own.

He got the same deal as everyone else, I was convicted of making a terrorist threat and had to endure a fucking year in wifebeater school. It sucks.

Someone based at Camp Pendleton is going to be a Marine or sailor, not a soldier.

Law EnFORCEment Officers must be held to a HIGHER STANDARD.

 

Corrupt Criminal Cops deserve TWICE the punishment that an ordinary citizen would receive for the same crime.
