Two Cops Fired for Having Sex As Cops Across US Keep Jobs After Killing People

We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight. – John Lennon

San Antonio, TX — Here at the Free Thought Project, we’ve brought you case after case of police officers harassing, beating and even killing innocent people, and not only escaping charges — but keeping their jobs. Nothing highlights a sick society quite like government employees fired for having sex, while their counterparts keep their jobs for killing.

In April of last year, Officer Eman Fondren, a four-year veteran of the department, and Officer Rebecca Martinez, who had served in the San Antonio police department since 2010, were both handed down indefinite suspensions. In spite of the indefinite suspensions, which equate to being fired, being handed out in April, their details were not made public until recently.

The two officers were fired, not for beating a handcuffed suspect, or for stomping an innocent man’s face, but for having consensual sex while on duty.

Martinez and Fondren, according to KSAT, were fired after the department’s investigation, which focused on the text messages sent between the two officers throughout October 2015, determined that the couple conspired to have sex while on duty, then later carried out their plan on more than one occasion.

No one here is arguing that the officers were fulfilling their official duty while having sex. However, the fact that cops, including many cops within the SAPD, have been caught committing horrible crimes and allowed to keep their jobs, is infuriating and telling of a depraved society.

Around 2:20 p.m. on May 20, 2014, Roger Carlos, 43, was taking photos of a building while scouting a location for his wife’s medical practice. Suddenly, an undercover drug task force officer pulled up, exited his truck, and ordered Carlos to the ground. Before Carlos had time to comply, the undercover cop began beating him in the face with a weapon.

Carlos was severely beaten to the point of hospitalization and left paralyzed. He’d done nothing wrong. The San Antonio cops who left him that way are still on the job.

In February 2015, an SAPD officer held his wife and children hostage in a standoff with police. Because of the ridiculous system of justice, this cop gets to keep his peace officer’s license.

San Antonio police officers Cristina Gonzales, Roberto Mendez, Jennifer Morgan, Bettina Arredondo, Ronald Haley, Benito Juarez, and Robert Encina surrounded Jesse Aguirre, 37, on the side of the interstate in 2014. Dashcam footage showed them suffocate him to death — they all kept their jobs.

This list is as infuriating as it is long.

However, while all these cops who beat and kill keep their jobs, Martinez and Fondren are fired for sex.

“Looking at the totality of the situation, the conduct they were engaged in was not at all ethical, not at all professional,” said Sgt. Jesse Salame, an SAPD spokesperson. “Certainly that’s something that we’re not going to tolerate in this department.”

However, as we illustrate above, the SAPD has no problem tolerating vicious and dangerous cops who assault innocent people or get involved in SWAT team standoffs while holding their own wife and children hostage.

Martinez and Fondren embarrassed their department and for this they were fired. The irony here is that violence and excessive force, even against innocent people, are not at all embarrassing to police departments across the country.

In fact, in today’s society, violence is not only tolerated — it is glorified. Case in point below.

The full on destruction of a city, in which men, women, and children were blown to pieces by US bombs can be broadcast into every home across America, and this is good. Wholesale murder and violence, sanctioned by the state, is not only accepted, it is promoted like a football game.

No one who started these wars of aggression was ever punished, despite everyone finding out that their entire premise was based on lies. Thousands of Americans were killed, tens of thousands were permanently disfigured and left disabled, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis slaughtered, and this is good.

More than 1,000 people a year are killed by police in America and the number of cops convicted for murder on the job barely registers in the single digits.

A society that punishes the creation of love in public, while glorifying the slaughter of their fellow human is a society in a crisis of conscience — and this case is further evidence of that fact.

    This is actually as it should be, thought it DOES present a sickening contrast to the murder-with-impunity policy. Any one of us would be fired for the same offense, and rightly so. When you’re “on the clock,” you’re paid to be doing a job. I don’t really want police officers to feel encouraged to sneak off and fuck on the public dime. The whole appeal of doing it at work is the risk of getting caught and being “in trouble,” so this is one instance where the little thrill-gamble didn’t pay off.

    The answer to this horrifying double standard is to start PUNISHING COPS WHO KILL, rather than letting everything else slide in the name of “fairness” just because “at least they didn’t hurt anyone.” That’s a pretty fucking low place to set the bar. I expect cops to do MORE than just not hurt people, and they can START by doing their jobs when they’re on the clock.

      All Cops can’t keep saying they “Feared for their Life” to justify shooting someone. We must let a jury of their peers decide in each and every case, the prosecutors will have to work to Free a Cop! I can’t see how we let Prosecutors decide without a legal explanation!

    If the picture you’ve posted is of the two officers involved, I think it’s pretty obvious why they were fired and not merely reprimanded.

    Nobodies being beaten or killed when they are having sex! Halleluyah!

  • John C Carleton

    My daughter years back, was beat up by a San Antonio cop, for telling him not to use vulgar language on her, and for telling him when he escalated, when a female dared reprimand him, she told him he was number one with her finger, ( a constitutional right under the 1st amendment to tell corrupt government minions, that they are corrupt government minions.). The San Antonio Internal Affairs Division, covered his butt and allowed him to continue harassing people, hiding behind a badge. When my daughter told the Internal affairs cop when they were not going to do anything to him, “I am afraid to come down town now”. Cop said, “Well, maybe you should not come down town”. The SAPD, continued to protect him for three more years until he raped a transgender women in the back seat of his patrol car while on duty. City fathers got the News channels to drop it after the first day. They cut a deal with the County Prosecutor who was huge drunk, had a driver because of that, who gave him a year in a Country Club setting, for a year for official oppression. I investigated his back ground when he beat up my daughter, the SAPT had covered many such acts of his for the three years before he beat up my daughter. I think it was two, but i know one other person came forward with accusations of rape by him.

    Of course they got fired!

    Department regs clearly state if an officer is going to have sex on the clock it has to be coercive and preferably with someone underage.

    How many rules can you break and expect to keep your job – it doesn’t reflect well on your fellow officers.

    Just like how it took Milo Yiannopoulos to talk about how we should empathize with older men fucking young boys to get his book deal cancelled, get uninvited to speak at an conservative conference, and force him to quit being the editor at Breitbart. And not his flagrant racist ideas about African Americans or Arabs, or his Islamphobia.

    There could be one more reason why those two were fired. Look at them…now, I don’t know the ethnicity of these two officers, but the visual evidence is that one appears Black and the other one appears White. Knowing how racist some cops could be, an interracial affair by two of their young recruits may have been too much for the Brass (mostly old, WHITE guys) to put up with.

    Prejudiced pigs always reveal their “stripes”.
