Meet Stephen J. Maiorino, the Florida cop who raped a 20-year old woman at gunpoint while on duty. By the way, he was previously named “Officer of the Month” by the department in 2010, and has appeared in the TV show “Cops.” You can’t make this stuff up.

From the Sun-Sentinel:

Boynton Beach police officer has been arrested after he allegedly raped a 20-year-old woman at gunpoint while he was on duty, police said.

Officer Stephen J. Maiorino, an eight-year veteran of the department who was in an episode of the TV show “Cops” in 2010, turned himself in to the Palm Beach County Jail on Thursday. He is now on unpaid administrative leave and “will be fired,” Police Chief Jeffrey Katz said.

Maiorino, 35, was charged with armed sexual battery, armed kidnapping and unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior, according to a statement from Boynton Beach Police.

The alleged incident happened Oct. 15. The woman had been left stranded in Boynton after the driver of a car she was riding in was arrested on a DUI charge. The driver’s car was towed.

Once at the department, she tried to get out of the car, but Maiorino grabbed her by the wrist and demanded she perform oral sex on him, she told investigators. He told that if she didn’t comply, she would face a DUI arrest herself, the affidavit said.

She told investigators she complied out of fear. But it didn’t end there, according to the affidavit.

Maiorino then drove her a short distance from the department building. There, she was forced to strip down and was held face down on the hood of a police-marked vehicle, the affidavit said. His right hand held her down during the sexual assault, the report said.

She told investigators she could see the gun in his left hand. Later, when the woman got dressed, Maiorino pointed a gun at her and told her he would kill her and her family if she told anyone, the police report said.

Six hours later, she made the complaint.

The next morning, the woman took investigators to the crime scene, where they found a condom wrapper and a condom, police said. Preliminary results Monday found that the woman’s DNA was on the condom, as well as on the condom wrapper and on his underwear.

At 6:36 p.m., he called out over his police radio that he was taking the woman to the police station. At 7:30 p.m., he dropped her off at the station, police said. The police report noted that 54 minutes had lapsed, even though the location where he initially picked up the woman was only 20 city blocks from the station.

Maiorino, who according to court records is married, declined to speak to investigators in the case. However, he did consent to a DNA oral swab and to handing over his clothes for the investigation, a police report said.

“This is a dark day in the history of our department,” the chief said.

His personnel file, which the city provided to the media, shows he has received numerous commendations, including “Officer of the Month” in March 2010. But problems with his performance started appearing routinely in 2011, the records show.

  1. In case anyone still had any doubt that “law enforcement” has degenerated over the decades, read this.

    How to serve a warrant: 1972 versus today, by Lt. Harry Thomas
    The transformation of law enforcement in my lifetime

    Bio: Lieutenant Harry Thomas is retired from the police department of Cincinnati, Ohio. A former member of the boards of the National Rifle Association and the Ohio Gun Collectors Association, he was twice the victim of assassination attempts by his own superiors for his stance in support of gun ownership and against police excesses. He now resides in the Greater Indianapolis area.

    • @Bevin – Bingo!
      “This past week I was over on Officer.com trying to convince some hot-headed, patriot-hating young cops that the Constitution is actually the law of the land. I failed. One of them refers to open carriers as “attention whores.” I was denounced as a traitor to law enforcement for insisting that gun owners actually have rights that LEO’s are legally and morally bound to respect. “

  2. I’ve watched Cops here a few times in Australia. Most of the cops on the show act goodie 2 shoes. I’ve often wondered how many of those cops abuse people. Now I know. I also heard recently that a cameraman for the cops show was shot and killed by a cop after they filmed a robbery in progress.

    Cops are definitely psychopaths. Especially in the “good ol’ USA”!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Yup.

      The video of the NY “hero” I posted last night is a textbook case. Overweight bully with a low IQ – and a hard-on to fuck with any peon who does not defer to his authority.

      That piece of shit would, I expect, act rather differently if he had to deal with someone his own size, absent his badge and gun and “back-up.”

      I pine for that day.

  3. So even buddhists have shitbird cagefetish conservatives infesting their flocks? How can that be?

    Gerry Rafferty/Joe Egan – Stuck In The Middle With You (1972)


    Well I don’t know why I’m online tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain’t right,
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you.
    Wondering what it is I should do,

    Well we started out with nothing,
    And we’re proud that we’re all self made men,
    And our friends, they all come crawlin round,
    They slap us on our backs and say,
    Please…. Please…..

    Trying to make some sense of it all,
    But I can see that it makes no sense at all,
    Guess its cool to go to sleep on the floor,
    ‘Cause I don’t think I can take anymore,,,

    clowns… jokers… here we are… still stuck…

  4. Sometimes it helps to think about how it used to be not that long ago. And maybe how it can be once again. Listening to this song by Gerry Rafferty is especially effective. It transports me away to Baker Street where it’s still 1978. And where all of this still hasn’t happened and is never going to happen.

    This city desert makes you feel so cold. It’s got so many people, but it’s got no soul. And it’s taken you so long. To find out you were wrong. When you thought it held everything. You’ve got this dream about buying some land. You’re gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands. And then you’ll settle down. In some quiet little town. And forget about everything.

    And when you wake up, it’s a new morning. The sun is shining, it’s a new morning. And you’re going, you’re going home.

    • Hi Tor,

      That song brings back a lot of great memories; I was 12 – and spent many weekends during the late ’70s at the local indoor ice arena (I played hockey). That song was constantly on rotation… a better time, indeed.

      • Yep, I didn’t even listen to the radio back then, just got turned on to good music by the crowd I hung with and this is one of the good ones from then. He’s a rollin, he’s a rollin stone…….. and so was I. I often feel like this is the website of the rollin stone
