Sexually abused, a cop, and an Adad

Hmmm... I could have sworn I read this story-line before.

OOOOOOOH, that's right.... same general theme.... "good cop adopts", bad adopted child squeals.

See:  Boys adopted by William Fox.

Only this new Martinez case is a wee-bit different.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Martinez was abusing children as young as 12.

Investigators said the behavior went on for years, but the officer was repeatedly allowed to adopt children and bring them into his home.

Investigators said Martinez had several images if children on his iPhone and computer. They said he kept his phone locked all the time and only allowed the children to use the phone in his presence.

But according to the same report, this wonder-Adad did more....

he allowed his adopted children to physically abuse each other and never notified the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

Investigators said they seized videos from his home showing children getting "pummeled by other children" and "hit over the head by Martinez." A child said he had "food poured on him" and he was "locked outside," police said.

Since the investigation and Martinez's first arrest in January, police said he has accused of intimidating witnesses from cooperating with police, conspired with a teenager to break into his home and steal evidence before police could seize it and gave $400 to another victim to send him on a bus to Utah to obstruct the investigation.

Imagine.... a cop hiding evidence and/or obstructing justice?!?

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Not a cop who is also a foster/adoptive parent!
