  • Un-biased Investigation

    Good job Alaska State Troopers. Sounds like it was a good un-biased investigation.


    Location: Fairbanks
    Case number: 07-34187
    Type: Sexual Assault 2nd Degree
    Text: On the evening of Thursday, May 3, 2007 Alaska State Troopers in
    Fairbanks received information alleging that an off duty Alaska State
    Trooper had sexual contact with a 16 year old female. A criminal
    investigation was initiated by members of the Alaska Bureau of
    Investigation which is a bureau of the Division of Alaska State Troopers.
    On May 5th, upon conclusion of the investigation, Trooper Junior
    Anthony, age 34 of North Pole, was arrested at his residence without
    incident. Following his arrest, Anthony was transported to the Fairbanks
    Correctional Center where he was booked on one count of Sexual Assault
    in the 2nd Degree. Sexual Assault 2 is a class B Felony offense.
    Junior Anthony is an Alaska State Trooper assigned to uniformed patrol
    in Fairbanks; he joined the Department of Public Safety in August, 2004.

    OK, what do you base your "un-biased" investigation on? No one likes an LEO to break the law but what do you base you claim on that is was an unbiased investigation in 2 days?

      Where did you learn about this? I didn't see anything about it in the Anchorage or Fairbanks newspapers.

        It's in the Fairbanks Newminer paper. It's on the AP site. I learned about on the DPS website. Check the Public Information Office.

        "what do you base you claim on that is was an unbiased investigation in 2 days?" AST conducted an investigation in a matter of two days which resulted in an arrest. They must have had enough evidence in order to charge a person with a B felony. Rarely during the course of a felony investigation does enough evidence present itself in two days to make an arrest. I would think that the person most likely confessed. Doesn't seem that they allowed him any slack since he is a trooper. That makes it a good un-biased investigation.

          I see the article on the web site now.

          That sucks, but I'm glad they caught him. It always sucks when one of us screws up, but it sucks worse when one of us keeps screwing up rather than be called on it.

          I'm glad I didn't have to do the investigation.

              Jakflak, I agree with you. It would be very hard to have to conduct an investigation like that. I wouldn't want to do it either. It sucks that that happened. I knew him and he was a good trooper.

                Is it just me? Or does it seem like an awful lot of Alaska State Troopers end up in trouble or jail?

                  It's just you. There are always going to be bad eggs; 99% of them get weeded out before hire. It just seems more common among police officers because it makes the news every time one of us screws up. You never hear press releases about a pizza driver who gets arrested for assault IV DV or DUI, but if a cop does it's all over the news.

                    I bet (if I were a betting man) that police officers overall are more likely NOT to do crimes (petty or otherwise) than the average population and like jakflak says it just hits the news.

                    The bottom line is there are no real reliable tests for personal ethics. You can do all the interviewing, psych exams and polygraphs you want and they won't be able to determine who is ethical behind closed doors and who is not. Cops, like all people are flawed so it really impresses me overall just how ethical most cops are.

                    One bad apple does not spoil the bushel.

                        Un-Biased Investigation

                        When I graduated in Sitka, Alaska from the DPS academy in July 1974, we were told the AST was a hard organization to get into but real easy to get out of. It still holds true today.
