After a dispute at a bar for alleged underage drinking, 20-year-old Rodolfo Lopez Castaneda, who police have not yet confirmed was involved in the drinking incident, was offered a ride home by Lee County sheriff's deputy Michael J. Ronga. Rather than drive him to his home, Ronga allegedly drove him to a secluded area and beat him up, then stole his cash and his phone.
The victim, 20-year-old Rodolfo Lopez Castaneda, told deputies he was at Maria's Restaurant in Bonita Springs where deputies responded in reference to a disturbance early Sunday morning.
Deputy Michael J. Ronga is now facing a robbery charge, and he's been placed on administrative leave without pay.
To answer Rodolfo's question, cops are employed not to protect and serve the public, but to protect and serve the state.
Of course, in practice, as this case illustrates so starkly, they act to serve themselves first and foremost.
