Jeremy Yachik was a cop who brought his brutality home. His psychopathic behavior led to him being caught on video kicking and beating his 15 year old daughter for the crime of "eating carrots."
According to court records, the girl told Loveland police investigators that Yachik abused her almost daily for years. The abuse allegedly included restraining her hands with handcuffs or plastic zip ties and then slamming her head into a wall hard enough to leave a hole and choking her until she blacked out, according to a Loveland Police Department arrest affidavit.
The girl also said he beat her with ropes, restricted her food, shackled her in a darkened room for hours and force-fed her "ghost pepper sauce" that's roughly 10 times hotter than habanero peppers, the affidavit said.
When asked why he was doing these things to his daughter he said that the teen "won't communicate" with him, according to the affidavit.
Luckily his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Saint-Roberts, caught one of these abusive fits of aggression on video and turned it into police. However, when the allegations were first brought forward, the department tried to cover them up.
After showing the video to Glen Johnson, the Police Chief, Saint-Roberts said they failed to respond and she was forced to find another venue to expose this abuse.
Yachik even called Saint-Roberts and told her: "'Nice try…trying to get me fired…it's not going to work" according to the reports.

Yes, there are plenty of bad people in this world who are not law enforcement officers. However, this person was a cop, he had the authority granted to him, to arrest you and/or kill you. To add insult to injury, his fellow cops covered for him when they knew he was torturing his 15 year old daughter.
If they get off with no jail time, what does that say about the justice system in the US?
