The father, Ronnie Bennet, was a Captain at the Harlan County Detention Center. His son, Kyle Simpson, was a Corrections Officer at the same center. We scoured both men’s Facebook pages, which were public, and found a trove of evidence linking them to cockfighting. We should note that it was apparently no secret in the detention center about Mr. Bennett’s illegal cockfighting, meaning that other law enforcement officers were aware and yet did nothing to stop the criminal activity.
Simpson is in the middle, Bennett is on the right.
