Rockville, MD — FBI agent, Geral John Rogero, 45, was accompanying a friend on her way to pick her child from her estranged husband when things got out of hand.
Rogero, unable to contain his divine authority, began to get a little too involved in this family matter. When the estranged husband is late, Rogero begins to chastise him.
Acting as nothing more than a strong arm for the mother, Rogero escalates the situation simply because that is what he is trained to do. Perplexed by the notion of the mother bringing an armed agent of the state to their hand off meeting, the 15-year-old son becomes agitated and asks Rogero why he is even involved.
Having a child question his authority, was enough to send the power-tripping FBI agent over the edge. Rogero then walks up to the child, who is half his size, and shoves him so hard that the teen flew back 10 feet before falling to the ground.
After assaulting the child, Rogero, so offended that someone would question his supreme wisdom, then attempts to arrest the 15-year-old for no reason.
When the child resists being kidnapped by this deranged lunatic, Rogero pulls his gun out. He then claims that he is going to arrest the boy’s mother who tried to stop him. Rogero asserts that a mother attempting to stop an aggressive maniac from assaulting her son is “assault on a federal officer.”
Of course, when the police show up, the boy is treated like a hardened criminal. The video shows one officer place his boot on the boy’s back. Had it not been for the person filming this incident, the entire situation could have turned out horribly for this family.
Only after authorities saw the compelling video, did they choose to charge one of their own. Rogero was indicted on three counts of first-degree assault, second-degree assault and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony.
This week, Rogero was found guilty of the second-degree assault charges, but was acquitted on the other two more serious charges of nearly killing an innocent child with a pistol. His defense team was able to convince a jury that Rogero legitimately “feared for his life” (seriously), and so he was justified in pulling his gun.
The defense claimed that the “life threatening” attack from the teen happened in the brief moments in which the camera panned away.
Resolute in the notion that he would escape all charges for his crimes due to his status of government enforcer, Rogero had a panic attack after the guilty verdict was read in the courtroom. He had to be transported to a local hospital after he was experiencing shortness of breath.
In spite of just being convicted of assaulting a child, it was announced that Rogero would remain in his job, on active duty, and keep his badge and gun.
