Police Impersonator who Robbed Couple at Gunpoint had just Resigned from Force

Just over two weeks after resigning from the Atlanta Police Department to avoid being further investigated for crimes committed while wearing the badge, Justin Thorne was caught on camera committing more crimes while wearing the badge.

Thorne was in full uniform when he allegedly robbed two people at gunpoint inside a Comfort Inn hotel room on October 17. He made off with $800 in cash and a $700 iPhone. He was arrested Friday after a joint investigation between the Cobb County and Atlanta police departments.

Thorne, 22, was hired in October 2017. Earlier this year, internal affairs began investigating for offering to take money from a suspect in exchange for making the warrant “go away,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

He remains in jail with no bond on several felonies, including armed robbery, impersonating an officer, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
