Florida Pastor / Police officer - Vernon Allan Richardson - Killed himself rather than face what a hypocrite he is/was - 2019

Children’s Pastor and Police Officer, Kills Himself After CHILD PORN is Found on His CHURCH Computer

In Florida, a police detective and children’s minister, committed suicide rather than face his peers and show what a hypocrite he is/was after he has been under investigation for having child pornography.

Detective Vernon Allan Richardson, who is/was children’s minister and award-winning veteran officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, has killed himself on Tuesday. He made this decision to end his pathetic life because the authorities investigated him for possession of child pornography, some of which was found on his church computer. He choose the coward’s way out rather than face a jury of his peers and being found guilty of being a hypocrite!

The Pastor of Riverstone Community Church in Jacksonville, Pastor Ricky Baldwin, did not know his children’s minister was in possession of child pornography until he heard about the suicide. Richardson had been with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office for 17 years (wonder how many people he set up for exactly the same crime) and served as Riverstone’s children’s pastor for eight years.

Guess those sex offender registries really are as useless as the studies show time and time again! This fine office was NOT listed on any registry and he was a police officer and a church pastor working with CHILDREN! 

Richardson had been married for more than 30 years and his son is an officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office.

“Never in a million years would you ever thought that was possible. That’s why it’s so hard to believe now. I don’t know what all is going to come out, or what is yet to come out. I don’t know any of that. But we loved him and we love his family and plan to stick by his family,” Baldwin said.

The Florida Times-Union reports that Richardson was found dead shortly before noon in some woods off Tynes Boulevard near Pine Ridge Parkway on Tuesday from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

ANOTHER ARTICLE ON THIS HYPOCRITE…

From Article:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a decorated Florida police detective killed himself just before he was to be arrested on charges that he possessed child pornography.

The Florida Times-Union reports that Jacksonville sheriff’s Detective Vernon Richardson killed himself Tuesday, shortly after detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest.

The neighboring St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation in December after receiving a tip he had child porn on his computer. Detectives found an image of two adolescent boys having sex. He was questioned Feb. 1 and denied looking at child porn. Investigators say his computer was seized and two photos of naked children were found.

Richardson was the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s local officer of the year in 2012 for his work finding missing children.

 

Yet another article on this decorated Police Detective and Church pastor – HERE

“Detective Vernon Allan Richardson, an officer since 1999 who was last working as a burglary detective, was also in charge of the children’s ministry at Riverstone Community Church in Jacksonville with his wife, according to the church website.

Richardson’s computer was seized by investigators, and two images deemed to be child pornography were found, according to the Sheriff’s Office. One was of a nude boy 7 to 9, the other of a nude girl of the same age range, the records said.

Detectives sought an arrest warrant on two child pornography-related charges against Richardson, but he was found dead before they could take him into custody, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

The Sheriff’s Office said Richardson worked at a church, where computers were looked at by investigators. Riverstone Community Church’s website says Richardson and his wife had been involved in the children’s ministry for more than four years and have served in this area of ministry for well over 10 years. They had been married for 29 years, with grandchildren who also go to the children’s ministry, named The Filling Station.

Of course this is only the tip of the iceberg and a single example of sex offences by the police – there is NO shortage of  them! Just cut out the middle man and put all of them on the sex offender registry to save time and money! Seems like a lot of them belong there – and they are the ones watching the others – hiding in plain sight. Registries do NOTHING except divert attention from REAL SEXUAL PREDATORS such as Detective Vernon Richardson! End useless sex offender registries and save children!
