WATCH: Cops Do Nothing as Fellow Cop Snaps, Pulls Gun, Threatens to Kill Innocent Woman

West Baton Rouge, LA — A Brusly Police Officer has resigned after body cam footage leaked on LiveLeak has surfaced revealing just how angry some police officers can become when police affairs involve personal relationships.

Cpl. Shellie Maranto can be seen flying like a bat out of hell into a gravel parking lot in her unmarked SUV police cruiser. She jumps out of the vehicle and begins her verbal tirade which also involved deadly threats.

No less than five times did Maranto declare she was going to kill another woman. She even took her service pistol out of its holster and pointed it at her. “I’m going to f__ing kill that whore,” she kept repeating. “I’m going to f__ing beat her ass,” she would also say. Clearly, the corporal had lost all sense of control, but what’s the real story behind her manic rage?


The woman, whom the officer promised to kill, was actually a family member, her sister-in-law, who was apparently stepping out on her brother. The out-in-the-open supposed philandering of her sister-in-law was enough to throw the veteran police officer into a violent rage, the consequences of which are still being played out for all to see.

Maranto has resigned after evidence of her violent outbursts, death promises, and gun waving were released to the general public. The woman, who initially wanted to press charges, changed her mind after she reportedly said nothing would happen with any internal investigation. Apparently, the victim was right too — as Maranto, even though she resigned — has yet to receive so much as slap on the wrist for assault with a deadly weapon, felonious threats, and official oppression, all of which were caught on video.

It is also important to point out that while Maranto was committing all of these crimes, the cops who surrounded her did nothing to stop it. In fact, one officer can be heard laughing as Maranto brandishes her service pistol and aims it at her sister-in-law. Had Maranto not been wearing a badge, those officers would’ve likely killed her.

The incident took place on March 31, and was released to the public this week. Brusly Police Chief Jonathan Lefeaux said Maranto resigned instead of waiting for the firing party as the town was prepared to end her employment. Lefeaux said he had no idea what had transpired until after he watched the body camera footage. “She just lost her cool. It’s a shame…She essentially, ruined her career,” he said. He told reporters:

Unfortunately, incidents such as this are going to happen in any profession, no matter what type of controls are instituted to prevent them…We as police officers must honor today’s society’s calls for these matters to be handled swiftly and with 100 percent clarity to work toward bridging the gap of mistrust between police and the community.

The old adage states “blood is thicker than water” and such appears to the be the case of the angry sister-in-law cop who chose to threaten her brother’s wife rather than quietly deal with personal family matters.

Marano was a 15-year-veteran of policing and had been at the Brusly Police Department for four years. It’s unclear if she will pursue a career in law enforcement following the scandal. However, because she resigned and wasn’t fired, she can still return to law enforcement as a career. It’s unclear which police chief or department would take her on the force with the knowledge she’s threatened one of her own family members with death.

As for our work at TFTP, we see certain patterns of behavior among police officers. First, they seem to bully the public into 100 percent compliance with their demands. Sometimes, officers like Maranto cease being demanding and cross the lines of behavior into criminal actions. We hope she never returns to law enforcement, and, instead, gets help for her emotional issues.

    Look at all them good cops protecting the bad cop. No wait they are all bad cops.

    Body cam strikes again.

    Crazy ass bitch! This piglet still a cop?

  • REALConservative

    Well you can take the trash out of the trailer park, but….

  • Heretic Jones

    The police chief said “incidents such as these are going to happen in any profession”. A person of any profession can lose his or her cool, but I’d say incidents such as these are pretty much confined to police departments and post offices.

      Of course, crazy ass MFs exist in every occupation. The difference is, when any occupation other than cop does it, they get arrested and charged, and if it’s on video, convicted.

      But, unless you are a cop, you will be shot at and convicted.

  • Amor Terra

    Those idiots standing there permitting felonious assault–those are the “good cops.” This has been a public service announcement.

    • Anonymous

      They did nothing to stop it. That makes them all bad cops.

      • Amor Terra

        That’s kind of what I meant. Sarcasm, you know.

        • Anonymous

          But, there are those who would seriously say they are good cops.

          • Amor Terra

            I know there are. That’s why we have so damn many of them.

            We are not talking about the cops saying they are good cops when they do nothing to stop this. That part goes without saying. EVERY cops thinks “I’m a GOOD cop!” But, we are talking about civilians. We know someone who said that “a good cop is one who just keeps his head down and doesn’t report or try to stop the bad cops.” Well, that is NOT a good cop. People need to stop forgiving these bastards and start demanding EVERYONES heads on sticks! That is the ONLY way this crap is going to ever stop.

          • Amor Terra

            You’re repeatedly arguing with someone who has a long history (including on this thread) of saying exactly that. WE are responsible for this BS, by our reaction to every tiny problem being “there ought to be a LAW,” and by letting these cretins get away with murder and not storming every cop shop, state legislature, city council, and courthouse until it stops. You seem to just want to argue.

            We know what you are saying. We are just emphasizing it. The sad thing is that there are people who really do forgive these cops for their silence. And, as you know, silence is consent. We need to get the message across to those who don’t seem to get it, that if you are silent when you see a bad cop do something wrong, you ARE just as guilty. We are open to proposals on how to do this.

            Also, another part of the problem is that people aren’t getting angry. That is what brought change to Foolerton, everybody raising hell over Kelly Thomas murder.

            The big problem is that here, we seem to always get cop suckers on every jury. They are afraid to convict because it might disparage all cops.

    oh yeah, America’s got plenty of white trash, some wearing the badge, some not.

    Don’t forget we were basically a penal colony for 200 years as England and other Euro countries dumped all their street criminals & degenerates on us.

    Did you every wonder WHY we’re so different and backward compared to western Europe?

    • Andrew Muise

      Australia was an ACTUAL penal colony, but you don’t see bullshit like this there. The US truly is a shithole.

      • Bob Btme

        >>>In 1615, English courts began to send convicts to the colonies as a way of alleviating England’s large criminal population. This practice was unpopular in the colonies and by 1697 colonial ports refused to accept convict ships. In response, Parliament passed the Transportation Act of 1718 to create a more systematic way to export convicts.

    I don’t know why she resigned. She probably would have been promoted and voted “Officer of the Year”

  • Johnny Owens

    That was a family thing, not a cop thing.
