MAY, 2019 – V.I.P NEWS
BREAKING NEWS 5/30/2019
[Scumbagged is working directly with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other unnamed law enforcement jurisdictions into a corruption probe pertaining to Portage County. This will usher in a new article that will be featured shortly that show’s an Ex-Commander having taking pictures of an undercover ATF Agent, missing money from evidence rooms, burning of confidential informant information and a letter from a Portage County Drug Task Force officer who witnessed paperwork trails being destroyed. We’re connecting the dots with a huge amount of tips and official documentation and evidence that has been provided. Exclusive coming soon.
The Akron Fire Department Chief sent us a letter commanding us to redact an article. In his letter he rebuffed several statements that were made on the site and called them “false” – also within the same letter he contradicts himself and admits to the facts that we divulged. Exclusive coming soon.
A Northeast Ohio Police Chief (active) is in some serious trouble. We can’t speak too much on it yet, but we have the inside scoop on the situation. The chief liked sexual favors in exchange for letting women off the hook and even instructed his officers that they were “off limits”. This will be a good one, unfortunately due to the underlying investigation we can’t run with this story yet. Look forward to this potentially sometime in July.
A Judge in Summit County is investigating the accusations made against Lawyer Eric E. Jones. There’s other women that have contacted us about inappropriate actions taking place as well. Justice is coming for the woman that was accosted and sexually assaulted as well as the numerous (that we presume are out there) that have been subjected to his unwanted sexual advances. Follow up coming soon.]
