Anchorage, AK — As TFTP reported in 2019, in one town in Alaska, the "bad apple" excuse goes completely out the window as every single cop on the force at one time, had been convicted of domestic violence. One of the cops was even a registered sex offender.

According to the report, Nimeron Mike was a registered sex offender and had served six years behind bars in Alaska jails and prisons. He’d been convicted of assault, domestic violence, vehicle theft, groping a woman, hindering prosecution, reckless driving, drunken driving and choking a woman unconscious in an attempted sexual assault. Among other crimes.

Nevertheless, when Mike put in his application, he was hired immediately. But Mike is only one of seven cops in the town who has a history of beating and raping women. Every other cop on the force, including the current police chief has a criminal record involving abuse of women, yet all of them remain cops.

This week, we have learned the inevitable and horrifying results of looking the other way as cops dole out violence on their families. Jalonni Blackshear, 39, has been transported back to Alaska after he was found hiding out in New York. He is currently in a cage — where he belongs — and is being held on a $15 million bond for horrifically unspeakable criminal acts against his own family.

According to police, Jalonni Blackshear had an argument with his 14-year-old daughter in March when she came out as gay.

“She was told that she could not be gay,” Jeri White, who is Raechyl Blackshear’s mother and Jayla’s grandmother told Superior Court Judge Kevin Saxby during an arraignment hearing Tuesday. “And then several hours later, he attempted to prove to her that she was not gay by doing these unmentionable, unspeakable things that good fathers would never do — that good fathers would actually lay down their lives to protect their children from.”

As Anchorage Daily News reports:

On March 30, the morning after the argument, Jayla told her mother she had been sexually abused in their home while Raechyl Blackshear was working an overnight shift as a nurse at a local hospital, according to a bail memorandum written by prosecutors last month and filed this week. The 34-year-old mother took her daughter to the hospital, and they were then directed to Alaska CARES, where a sexual abuse evidence kit was collected. Alaska CARES is a child advocacy center that focuses on helping children who have experienced trauma from abuse.

After the sexual assault allegations, Raechyl Blackshear and her children stopped staying at the home. She and Jayla were sleeping at a hotel, according to the bail memo. Jalonni Blackshear was at a hotel room with his brother and one of his children, the document said. Three of his sons were staying with a family friend.

Four days after officer Blackshear raped his own daughter, he threatened her mother and forced her to recant her statement to the police. On April 3, Jayla Blackshear went to the police department with her mother and retracted her statement, claiming the sexual abuse allegations were false.

Hours later, Blackshear would find his daughter and his wife at their home where he murdered them both with a shotgun.

He then stole his daughter's phone and began texting family — pretending to be his daughter — to throw police off his trail before fleeing to New York state. Because of this, their bodies would not be discovered for ten more days when a nationwide manhunt was launched for Jalonni Blackshear.

On April 20, he was found in New York and arrested. In charging documents, Anchorage police Detective John Kleinsmith wrote that the family had an “extensive history of domestic violence.” He had multiple charges pending from back in 2019. Why then, was he allowed to remain on the force?

As the Daily News points out, officials at the department, where he was employed as a correctional officer since 2018, were not aware of the ongoing investigation into the sexual abuse until after Blackshear separated from employment with the department on April 6 — two days after murdering his child and wife.

“Mr. Blackshear is the most sophisticated, manipulative, controlling and dangerous parent I’ve ever dealt with in the past 14 years,” one of the Office of Children’s Services investigators wrote.

Indeed.

Jalonni Blackshear has since admitted to the murders.
