A report has surfaced that is probably one of the most hideous cases of police misconduct we’ve heard about in quite some time.
A journalist in contact with Counter Current News has reported that a police officer has been caught raping animals.
The officer, Robert Melia Jr, orally raped multiple cows, according to the report.
Reports say that Officer Melia forced as many as five young cows to take his penis inside their mouths for oral sex.
Not only did he sexually abuse cows, but evidently three young girls were also the victims of his sexual abuse.
Counter Current News reported as follows:
In Mount Holly, New Jersey, Officer Melia was indeed caught sexually assaulting a cow, but his sexual crimes did not end with non-humans. Melia was also charged, several years ago, with sexually assaulting three girls.
It was during the course of that investigation that police found a video in Melia’s home that recorded him… abusingmultiple cows. Apparently he was so proud of this abuse that he filmed it and saved it for posterity.
The incident was allegedly recorded on a South Hampton farm back in 2006. But a Superior Court Judge ruled in 2012 that prosecutors had failed to present sufficient evidence to jurors that Melia’s actions in fact tormented the cows.
Unbelievably — yet unsurprisingly — the charges against the officer were dropped.
The judge remarked, “I’m not saying it’s OK,” after dismissing the charges.
“This is a legal question for me. It’s not a question of morals,” he continued.
Apparently, it was perfectly legal for the officer to sexually assault the cows, since the cows “did not show enough torment.”
Just because the cows did not explicitly act “tormented,” that doesn’t mean that they consented to the officer sexually abusing them.
The cows simply lacked the higher-order conscious thought processes to realize they were being raped, as humans do.
But it does not follow from this that they weren’t abused. Animals can still experience states such as pain, fear, and shock if they are abused.
“I think any reasonable juror could infer that a man’s penis in the mouth of a calf is torment,” said Burlington County assistant prosecutor, Kevin Morgan.
“It’s a crime against nature.”
Despite the charges being dropped against the officer for having sex with cows, he was still charged with the abuse of the girls.
A jury found him guilty of six counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, plus aggravated criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child.
