Officer once fired for lying resigns after military service questioned.

| October 10, 2018

Skidmark sends us the story about a San Antonio police officer who won his job back last year after being indefinitely suspended that has now resigned from the department amid new allegations and is now facing criminal charges.


Questions arise about Martin’s service in U.S. Marine Corps

In the arbitration ruling it was stated Martin “spent approximately 4 years honorably serving in the United States Marine Corps,” which he followed up with a stint in the US Secret Service “as a highly trained member on the presidential protective detail.”

In March of this year, the Defenders received an anonymous letter which raised questions about Martin’s military service.
The letter stated: “This is not true. I find it interesting and quite upsetting that someone would lie about serving in the Marine Corps, but apparently this is just what officer Martin did because I can assure you he was not a Marine.”

A search of Martin’s official Texas Commission on Law Enforcement records revealed more troubling information.

Records show Martin began working for the Wilson County Sheriff’s office in January 2017, during his suspension from SAPD, and that he has continued to be employed there for a year and 8 months, which overlapped his service at SAPD when he was returned to duty.

SAPD said it did not approve Martin to work for an outside agency.

The Defenders have asked the Marines and the U.S. Secret Service for Martin’s service records which have not yet been provided. A person who works in the records department, however, confirmed Martin joined the Marines in July 1997, but said it appeared he never graduated from boot camp.

The Defenders have tried to contact Martin through his attorney for a comment, but he has not responded.


Stolen Valor is only the tip of the iceberg.  Some guy used to say that around here a lot.  Thanks to Skidmark for the story.

Dave Hardin, If you do F/B, Vietnam Reflections T.T.E.- The Post Exchange has video, from KGW8 of Deputies and staff in Clackamas County Ore. and their treatment of PTSD Army Vet Bryan Perry 31, Purple Heart recipient, and the help he received in their custody, died from overdose after finally taken for medical treatment. No Vet should die this way regardless of his life circumstances.

    I just read the report on why this guy was initially shit-canned. ( Apparently, he was watching a drug house and caught a guy doing a buy, then pulled him over for unregistered car and open warrants.

    During the stop, he found a few bags of weed in the car, and after talking to the female passenger, she freely admitted to him that she had a small amount as well and gave it to him because she was worried about her kids waiting at home with a babysitter. Rather than bust her for a tiny amount of weed, he threw it in with the other bags he found and just charged the driver.

    Fake Marine and Secret Service agent? double-dipping at two PDs? Grade-A Shitbird. But I’m on the fence about the original charges against him. It seems like he was caught cutting someone a break and they dropped the hammer on him.

    Obviously, a brave patriot that somehow had his service erased and reputation destroyed by infiltrators bent on destroying this country from the inside.

  8. Booted out of Boot Camp. I wonder what that was all aboot.

    What an idiot. I can’t begin to describe how abundantly stupid this guy was. It’s like he was going out of his way to get fired and charged with a crime.

      Oh, I don’t know. If you review the facts as presented, his dept ate it all and asked for second helpings. It was an anonymous letter that got him. Arrogance well explains the undoing of many.

    What retard hired this turd? They should get the boot too. A basic background investigation would have prevented all of this.

    Nothing but a load of shit. Tarnishes honorable LEOs, the vast majority of whom just want to do a good job and go home alive. I wish there was some way this turd could do jail time. Just pure shit.
