I wonder if the WE BACK THE BLUE groupies will visit him in prison, take him cookies, give him alone time with their children?
The Ole Dog!
Bonner Springs, KS — As TFTP has previously reported, schools across the country are increasingly hiring police officers to do the job that teachers and guidance counselors once did. This is resulting in the criminalization of childhood as well as increased police violence against children. And, as the following case out of Kansas illustrates, these positions for school cops are being filled by child predators.
Officer Mark A. Scheetz, 40, with the Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools Police Department was arrested in 2019 over horrifying allegations of child rape and other sex crimes against children, according to the Kansas City Star.
This week, he received an unprecedented life sentence after he was found guilty of two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy with a child younger than 14, two counts of rape, sexual exploitation of a child and intimidating a witness. According to his sentence, he is eligible for parole but not until he’s served 50 years.
Scheetz was arrested in 2019 in Bonner Springs on suspicion of rape, aggravated criminal sodomy and aggravated indecent liberties with a child, according to the Kansas Bureau of Investigations.
The KBI noted that the crimes allegedly occurred while Scheetz was living in Norton County between 2013 and 2015 when he allegedly “engaged in sex acts with a minor, sent lewd photos to minors and used electronic devices to solicit sex with minors.”
After the period of the alleged crimes, Scheetz sought out a career in law enforcement and became a deputy with the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office from 2016 to 2018. He then found a job in the school district which put him in direct contact with children.
