The arrest of James Burke, the former Suffolk County Police Chief, has sent shockwaves through the community.
Burke, who was heavily criticized for derailing the Gilgo Beach murders investigation due to his connections to sex workers, has now been arrested for soliciting a sex worker. This stunning development occurred on Tuesday morning at Suffolk County’s Vietnam War Memorial. The timing is particularly significant, as Burke’s involvement with sex workers during his tenure as Chief from 2012 to 2015 raises suspicions about his mishandling of the Gilgo Beach murders investigation, considering that all the victims were sex workers.

This recent arrest is not the first time Burke has faced legal trouble. In 2015, he was arrested for brutally assaulting a suspect in custody. Following his conviction, he served a sentence of 46 months in prison. These previous incidents only add to the mounting concerns surrounding his credibility and judgment.
