BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – A man was arrested in Brevard County on suspicion of drug-related trafficking while he claimed to enjoy beating and killing cops, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies pulled Willie Jackson over for a traffic stop Tuesday and saw that Jackson had heroin and drug paraphernalia in his vehicle, reports show.

Deputies said Jackson refused to exit the car as instructed and instead put up the window.

Reports indicate deputies broke the window to his car afterward, at which point they found more drugs in his car and on his person.

Jackson told deputies during this time about “how he likes to beat up cops and even kill them,” the sheriff’s office stated.

Deputies said Jackson was arrested and taken to the Brevard County Jail on a total bond of $121,000.

However, in a social media post, the department announced that Jackson “should have never been out on the street,” criticizing sentencing by judges.

“He has been charged with over 40 crimes and has 14 felony convictions for various crimes, including narcotics violations, battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and so on!!” the agency wrote. “Why is someone who has that many charge and convictions out on our streets where he can do more harm? When are these freaking judges going to learn that their job is to put bad people away where they can’t hurt anyone else!!”

Deputies stated Jackson faces charges for trafficking in heroin and alprazolam, possession of cocaine, resisting an officer without violence and possession of a controlled substance while in control of a motor vehicle.
