(ANTIMEDIA) At least one minor and at least one sex-worker were invited to a private party on a golf course that was held by members of the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Department in 2012. Witnesses reported that members of the party were openly using cocaine and that the woman who attended the party was walking around the golf course fully nude.
There is plenty of evidence proving that the incident occurred because the officers asked bartender Gino Defonzo to take photos of them with the woman. The woman is seen naked pictured between a number of officers holding beers, and one of the officer’s underage sons.
Major Robert Van Reeth of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Management Services Bureau, his underage son, Jeffrey Van Reeth, (who is currently a deputy for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office), Joe Van Reeth of the West Palm Beach Police Department and Lou Penque of the West Palm Beach Police can all be seen clearly in the photos that were taken by Defonzo.
Defonzo passed the photos along to the website PBSOTalk.com, an anonymous forum where cops can blow the whistle and speak about corruption at the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
The forum relating to this incident has been taken down, but the photos remained, and some of the top comments were recorded by SheriffBradshaw.com. A few of the comments read:
This is taken completely out of context, this woman was playing a round of golf when a gator attacked her,(no it was not Tim Tebow, so don’t comment with juvenile jokes) tore off her clothes and was about to do bodily harm to her until these brave men came to her rescue
As a cop, and a frequent poster of this website, I condemn this behavior. They should all have their certifications pulled and be indicted. This behavior is not excusable.
Hey Bobby – you get your kid a blowjob out of this? You should get the ‘dad of the year’ award. sick pervert.
This is shocking. it makes me wonder about those condoning this behavior. The Sheriff said these officers are free to do what they want in their private lives. really? that is your view on this? no wonder our county is so F’ed up.
There was never any official comment made by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, however, some of the comments within the forum suggest that the officers were not disciplined in any way.
