Serial Felon Tells Brevard County Sheriff’s Deputies He ‘Likes to Beat Up Cops and Kill Them’

Sheriff Ivey: Enough is enough, it’s time Judges across the country start holding criminals accountable
Willie Jackson has been charged with more than 40 crimes and has 14 felony convictions for various crimes, including narcotics violations, Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon, and more.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Willie Jackson gets stopped for a traffic infraction by one of our Deputies and then suddenly has a “stupid attack” where he forgets to properly hide the drug paraphernalia in his car, refuses to comply with the Deputy’s instructions to exit the vehicle, has trafficking amounts of heroin in his possession, and then to top it off, tries to act all tough by telling our Deputies he likes to beat up cops and kill them.
Apparently, he failed to realize that he is in Brevard County and the last guy that tried to kill one of us got a full magazine emptied into him and helped coin the phrase, ”Evil Can Never Be Dead Enough!”
This particular incident occurred this past Tuesday when Jackson was stopped by Deputy Michael Neill and Sgt. Corey Bertini who, during the traffic stop, observed drug paraphernalia in plain view in Jackson’s vehicle. Deputy Neill and assisting Deputies asked Jackson to exit the vehicle at which time he refused to exit and even went as far as to put the window up in the car.
I guess he thought we would just go away, or who knows, maybe he completely forgot that this is Brevard County and we don’t take crap off of criminals.
Not only did we not go away, we broke the window out of his car and snatched him out of it! To make matters worse, while Deputies were finding the various drugs in his car and on his person, Jackson decides to try and impress us by telling us how tough he is, and how he likes to beat up cops and even kill them.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that Jackson failed to realize just how foolish he looked trying to act all tough while sporting a purple rooster on top of his head and standing in hand cuffs on the side of the road.
To be honest though, the actual scary part of this story is not that Jackson had a really bad hair day or even that he claims he likes to kill cops, instead, it’s that this guy should have never been out on the street as he has been charged with over 40 crimes and has 14 felony convictions for various crimes, including narcotics violations, Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon, and so on.
Why is someone who has that many charges and convictions out on our streets where he can do more harm? When are these freaking judges going to learn that their job is to put bad people away where they can’t hurt anyone else.
Thankfully, once again our Deputies did their jobs by charging Jackson with six more crimes to add to his laundry list of charges and stuffed him in the Brevard County Jail on a total bond of $121,000.
Jackson was charged with Trafficking in Heroin, Trafficking in a Controlled Substance (Alprazolm), Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Resisting an Officer Without Violence, and Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance While In Control of a Motor Vehicle.
Enough is enough and it’s time that judges across this country start holding criminals accountable for their actions and putting them away for good where they can’t target anyone else.
