It takes a very disturbed person to molest a 9-year-old girl and then not take credit for his actions even after being found guilty and sentenced to more than 2 life terms.
Deputy Joseph Pallante is that kind of person.
When Pallante walked into the courtroom he faced a room filled with supporters of the now-teenaged victim.
The only supporter he had in the courtroom was his mother. ‘Gee, thanks for coming, Mom.!
And then the victim had her say: “The only person that should take the blame is him, and he can’t even have the decency to own up to his own actions. He’s a disgusting and deceitful monster that should spend the rest of his life rotting in a prison cell.”
A jury found that Pallante forced the girl into sex acts beginning when she was 9-years-old and showed her pornographic videos to teach her what to do.
“That absolutely never happened. She actually looked up the pornography, and I caught her looking it up,” Pallante said.
“Since my son was a little boy, he was always respectful of others, and he is just truly a good human being,” Sharon Pallante said. Gee, thanks for being my only character witness, Mom.
Here at The American Police State we are glad when any police officer is put away for his crimes. And yes, we are very glad about Former Deputy Joseph Pallante.
But, why was Joseph selected for such drastic punishment when others cut from the same cloth don’t even get indicted by a grand jury?
Who did he cross, and what position did that person have that enabled him to see to it that a former police officer was sent to prison for the rest of his life?
That just doesn’t happen when a cop abuses regular working folk. That’s just the way it is. Someone had to know what strings to pull, and there were people listening to that person pulling the strings.
We have a good idea about what happened behind the scenes, but due to the nature of this crime and out of respect for the victim we are leaving this as it is.
