flags and paraphernalia.
As embattled San Leandro Narcotics Det. Jason Fredriksson ambled into Hayward Superior Court this morning, sources with decades of law enforcement experience tell The Citizen, numerous photographs on the officer’s personal blog raise serious questions of impropriety.
The blog, unfortunately named, “F–k the Factory” and written under Fredriksson’s handle as “Big Dirty” features photos featuring numerous Nazi-related flags and banners, San Leandro police officers imbibing alcohol and images of bikers with tattoos, sources say, are common in prison culture, namely a spider-web design typically centered around elbows.
Just the photos posted on the web of police officers posing with cups of beer, in most jurisdictions, said a former cop, would illicit a suspension in any other department other than San Leandro.
One person seen in a photo drinking beer jokingly off the back of another person apparently acting as a table, is believed to be the nephew of San Leandro Police Capt. Steven Pricco.
There is also a belief the arrest of John Fredriksson, the father of Jason Fredriksson and also a former police officer, on eight counts of child molestation in Walnut Creek just a week after news broke of his sons arrest for allegedly selling a pound of marijuana to an undercover cop is no coincidence.
