ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND — A Maryland jury found former FBI Special Counter-Terrorism Agent Gerald John Rogero, 45, guilty of second-degree assault on Friday. Rogero's charge stems from a December 2014 incident, during which he was filmed shoving a then 15-year-old boy to the ground and then drawing his gun on the teen.
Rogero was reportedly angry that the ex-husband of a friend of his was late dropping off a child. In the video, Rogero yells at these people who are only tangentially related him over a matter that has nothing to do with him.
Rogero screams, "It's about respect!" before losing it when the teen mouths off. This bad cop actually tells the teen, "If I have to shoot you, I will. Don't make me shoot you."
Rogero was found guilty of second-degree assault on November 6, but he should be grateful he was acquitted of charges related to the use of a handgun in the commission of a felony. His sentencing is scheduled for January 2016."
