Sheriff Paul Bailey, one of the good old boys, is using his position inside Berrien County jail to run an actual sex to play operation inside Berrien County Jail.
The women are being sexually attacked and sexually exploited by Berrien County sheriff's deputies under Sheriff Paul Bailey's watch. There will be more than fifty sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations against Berrien County deputies.
The latest is that four more women have filed suits alleging two more Berrien County Sheriff's deputies sexually harassed them while they were jail inmates, joining 10 other women who have made similar allegations and fifty who have refused to file a complaint as of yet.
The latest complaint was filed on October 12 in U.S. District Court against former Sheriff Sergeants Brett McGrew and John McCoy who are no longer with the Berrien County department. Another former deputy, Keegan Trail, was named in the most recent action, but was removed from the lawsuit on October 19, 2016. He continues to be a defendant in the first lawsuit. If the plaintiff's attorney applies pressure to Keegan Trail, he will likely flip on at least ten Berrien County deputies.
Following an investigation last year by the Sheriff's department of his family and friends, Brett McGrew and Keegan Trail resigned and Sergeant John McCoy was fired for the sexual harassment that took place inside the jail while the women were under the Sheriff's department supervision. According to court documents in the latest lawsuit, three of the women allege that Brett McGrew made sexual advances towards them while they were inmates in Berrien County Jail under Sheriff Paul Bailey's watch, including inappropriate physical touching, hands down the pants contact. Several of the women claim that Sergeant McGrew was able to force them to submit to all of his demands. Another woman, who was in the Berrien County jail on several occasions from 2005 to 2013, claims that McGrew continued to contact her while she was in state prison from 2013-2016 and provided money to her.
Another plaintiff charged that she was incarcerated in Berrien County jail on various occasions from 2010-2014 and that Sergeant McCoy repeatedly made several sexual advances towards her. He contacted her through social media and continued his demands, even after her release from the Berrien County jail.
Berrien County deputies here in Berrien County jail were touching the women's private parts and smashing their breasts, like they belonged to them.
The Berrien County courthouse believe they are above the law. The law does not apply to Berrien County judges, prosecutors, and the sheriff's department under Sheriff Paul Bailey, yet they profess to uphold the law and to punish those who allegedly violated the law.
As the community across the country has noted of such hypocrisy, it breeds contempt for the law. It invites every man and woman to become a law unto himself/herself.
Dare to struggle, dare to win! All power to the people. We must stop this corruption at all costs. The hypocrisy in this country has no limits.
