Who’s pulling you over?: Hundreds if not thousands of lying, crooked cops allowed to keep their jobs and still testify in court

If you still believe that this is just a few bad apples then you are either a fool or a cop. Every week I peruse hundreds of stories about bad cops to post just one on this site.    For every article posted on this website I have passed on dozens of others that are current and relevant.    Lot of work, huh? Well that is what happens when a cop lies and the result is jail time for an innocent citizen. When self righteous, a person will go a long way to expose the corruption of those that persecuted them.    At one time I actually believed that whole ” Few bad apples” thing myself. Not any more. Because of misdeeds of various police officers, they have firmly put me in the camp opposite of theirs.  Nice job guys, keep up the good work.

Revat Vara should not have gone to prison.

One night in 2006, Houston police pulled him over for a missing license plate and told him to walk a straight line.

Vara said that he hadn’t had a drop to drink and that he passed the sobriety test. Officer William Lindsey said otherwise.

At trial, jurors were told about Lindsey’s expertise evaluating drunken drivers. They were told about Vara’s two previous DWIs.

What jurors weren’t told: Officer Lindsey had been found guilty of misconduct by his department 35 times. He was investigated for padding his overtime – by manipulating DWI arrests so he would have to be called to testify – among many other violations.  ”

“In a case that came down to one man’s word against another’s, jurors believed the police officer. Because of his prior offenses, Vara was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

What happened to Vara has been unconstitutional for more than 50 years.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1963 that prosecutors must tell anyone accused of a crime about all evidence that might help their defense at trial. That includes sharing details about police officers who have committed crimes, lied on the job or whose honesty has been called into doubt.

A USA TODAY Network investigation found that widespread failure by police departments and prosecutors to track problem officers makes it impossible to disclose that information to people whose freedom hinges on the integrity of law enforcement.

Reporters for USA TODAY and its partners, including the Chicago-based Invisible Institute, spent more than a year gathering Brady lists from police and prosecutors in thousands of counties to measure compliance with the landmark 1963 ruling in Brady v. Maryland.

The investigation found:

  • Thousands of people have faced criminal charges or gone to prison based in part on testimony from law enforcement officers deemed to have credibility problems by their bosses or by prosecutors.
  • At least 300 prosecutors’ offices across the nation are not taking steps necessary to comply with the Supreme Court mandates. These places do not have a list tracking dishonest or otherwise untrustworthy officers. They include big cities such as Chicago and Little Rock and smaller communities such as Jackson County, Minnesota, and Columbia County, Pennsylvania.
  • In many places that keep lists, police and prosecutors refuse to make them public, making it impossible to know whether they are following the law.
  • Others keep lists that are incomplete. USA TODAY identified at least 1,200 officers with proven histories of lying and other serious misconduct who had not been flagged by prosecutors. Of those officers, 261 were specifically disciplined for dishonesty on the job.”

Who’s pulling you over? : Cop accidentally shoots and kills 73 old wannabe C.OP. during”Shoot, don’t shoot exercise”

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (ETF:SPY), (INDU) - The Alfred E. Neuman ...

And this genius, whether just stupid or evil may be pulling you over on a dark highway or questioning you on a sidewalk.   This genius may be questioning your 14 r. old child about a burglary in your neighborhood while “Under suspicion.  Worst of all, this genius may be trying to teach your grandmother how to make breakfast or keep your neighborhood safe.    Blue? Not a hero; Maybe a dumbass, maybe a criminal, most certainly someone who wants to be in power.  Sorry Grandma.

 

“PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) – Prosecutors in southwest Florida have filed charges against an officer who accidentally shot a woman to death during a citizens academy “shoot/don’t shoot” exercise, as well as the officer’s boss.

State Attorney Stephen Russell announced Wednesday that Punta Gorda Police Officer Lee Coel has been charged with felony manslaughter and faces up to 30 years in prison. Police Chief Tom Lewis has been charged with misdemeanor culpable negligence and faces up to 60 days in jail.

Authorities say 73-year-old Mary Knowlton was taking part in a roleplaying scenario Aug. 9 when she was mistakenly struck with a live round. The retired librarian was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.”

Who’s pulling you over? : N.C. Sheriff arrested for plot to murder Deputy

Granville County Sheriff Brindell Wilkins

Don’t be afraid of the man with the gun when he pulls you over. He is a hero who risks his life every day. He is part of the thin blue line that keeps anarchy at bay. And just remember, what is really important; that he goes home safe every day. A hero, for sure until his badge and mask are off.   Remember this guy anytime you hear sworn testimony from a cop. The cop is probably far more likely to be lying than the defendant

“A North Carolina sheriff was  suspended Monday after he was arrested last week for allegedly encouraging another man to kill a former deputy who had an audio recording of him making “racially insensitive” comments.

Granville County Sheriff Brindell Wilkins, the county’s top lawman since 2009, was removed from his post at the request of county attorney James Wrenn, who filed a petition for the sheriff’s suspension, according to CNN.

Wilkins and his lawyer agreed to the move.

The sheriff last Monday was charged with two felony counts of obstruction of justice after he allegedly told an unidentified man in 2014 that he wanted former deputy Joshua Freeman dead, according to an indictment.

“The only way you gonna stop him is kill him,” Wilkins purportedly told the man during a recorded phone call regarding the alleged plan, which was ultimately not put into action.

In 2014, Wilkins learned that Freeman said he had a recording of the sheriff using “racially insensitive language,” which the deputy planned to release to authorities, according to the indictment.

Prosecutors claim that Wilkins’ “personal animosity” toward Freeman motivated him during an August 2014 recorded call to tell the unnamed would-be shooter to kill the deputy, clearly making his intentions known of not protecting Freeman or stopping the plot, the indictment states.

“If you need to take care of somethin’, just take care of something,” Wilkins told the man, according to the indictment.

The aspiring killer even gave Wilkins a time and location for when he planned to kill Freeman, as well as the type of firearm he intended to use. In response, Wilkins “counseled the individual how to commit murder” in a way to avoid being identified, including hiding the weapon used to kill Freeman and to simply keep quiet, the indictment continues.

“You ain’t got the weapon, you ain’t got nothing to go on,” Wilkins allegedly told the man before advising him to stay mum after the killing. “The only way we find out these murder things is people talk. You can’t tell nobody nothin’, not a thing.”

Who’s pulling you over? : Decorated St. Pete police officer arrested for child porn

Feel safe yet? Feel like getting pulled over on a dark highway? The thin blue line that protects us from anarchy…. And our children.   Do you ever wonder who the man behind the gun is? That sworn officer of the court, who’s word is given the weight of truth by a judge?   Well, we now know who this guy is; His badge and his mask are off. A real hero he was ; He managed to kill an 18 yr. old with his shotgun in a shoot out and got the highest award available. Wow! Color me impressed.

A police officer was arrested Thursday by Department of Homeland Security agents who said they discovered child pornography on his computer.

Officer Matthew Enhoffer, 33, is also accused of distributing pornographic images via text message, according to federal court records.

Following his arrest, the St. Petersburg Police Department placed Enhoffer on administrative leave without pay pending the outcome of the federal investigation. He had been placed on administrative leave with pay last week after federal agents raided his home on Sept. 11.

“It’s a shock for us at the police department,” said police Chief Tony Holloway. “The community does put a lot of trust in us. We have to earn that trust back with them. We’re just going to continue to keep building a relationship with our community.”

In 2015, Holloway stood on stage and handed Enhoffer the department’s highest honor, the Medal of Valor. The award stemmed from a May 17, 2015, shootout officers had with an armed 18-year-old. The gunman shot at Enhoffer, then shot and wounded another officer in the leg.

The gunman fired at Enhoffer a second time, who then fired his shotgun at the 18-year-old, fatally wounding him.

“He was an officer that risked his life when it was needed,” the chief said, “but at the same time this allegation is very serious so we’re looking into that.”

Who’s pulling you over? : Off-duty NYPD cop arrested for threatening motorist with gun

cops-on-steroids

Trust me, you have nothing to fear when you see cherries lighting up your dashboard. That is a sworn officer of the court behind you and anything that he says will be given the weight of truth.    Put your hands behind your back and let the man with the gun put you in handcuffs.    Remember….. You have nothing to fear….

” An off-dufy NYPD cop was arrested for allegedly threatening a motorist with his gun following a dispute at a red light in Queens, police said.

Officer Philip Case, 49, who was slapped with a menacing charge, got into an argument with another man at the corner of Van Doren Street and 108th Street in Corona about 10:15 p.m. Friday, authorities said.

With both cars stopped, Case flashed his gun and then sped off once the light turned green, cops said.

The victim called police and Chase was arrested a block away.

It’s unclear what prompted the argument, but police said both Chase and the victim remained in their vehicles during the confrontation.

Chase was released after getting a desk appearance ticket for the offense.”

Who’s pulling you over? : Idaho County Sheriff’s Office deputy fired following his arrest on multiple counts of underage sex charges

pervert

You should feel perfectly safe being pulled over on a dark ,deserted highway by a man with a gun and handcuffs. He’s one of the good guys, a hero and he keeps us all safe. He is part of the thin blue line that separates us from anarchy….. Right? Nothing to fear at all ….

” An Idaho County Sheriff’s Office deputy was fired Friday following his arrest on multiple counts of underage sex charges.

According to a press release from Idaho County, Nick Harris was arrested Friday in Siskiyou County, California, on two counts of lewd conduct with a minor under 16-years-old and one count of sexual abuse of a minor under 16-years-old.

Harris, who worked for the sheriff’s office for three years, was placed on paid administrative leave in May as an investigation into the allegations took place. He was in California as the investigation occurred, the release said. The Idaho State Police conducted the investigation.

Harris is being held on a $100,000 bond.”

Welcome to the American police state

Thomas Jefferson quote: Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted...

Definition of tyranny

1. Oppressive power exerted by government : The tyranny of a police state

When did it become the normal American state to exist in a state of “Diminished liberty” when in public?

When did our liberty fade so far that we cannot drive down the street or walk down the sidewalk without fear of being pulled over, stopped, frisked or searched?

We now live in a virtual police state with heavily armed domestic warriors ruling the public spaces that we occupy

Whether on land, sand or sea, you, and I, are subject at any time to inspection, search questioning or arrest

At any given time, with the amount of laws and regulations on the books, you are most likely in violation of some law

Even worse, with “Proactive policing” you are subject to questioning and a body search simply because an enforcer of the law believes that you might be suspicious.

The lawmakers that rule us have declared, via the supreme court, that during that search, if the heavily armed, bullet proof vested, arm of the local Government, feels threatened, you may be placed in handcuffs while being detained and questioned

That’s right

You as a free American, while having committed no crime, are subject to search, detainment and (for the moment) temporary imprisonment

I say temporary because at that point most anything you do can end with your arrest

For example, if you are vacationing in Florida and are looking at a boat that has floated onto the beach

Under the proactive policing guidelines issued by the U.S. DOJ, a police officer is obligated to investigate you to make sure that a crime is not being, or about (That’s right…About) to be committed

If that officer feels threatened, even if you are a group of middle aged disabled women in swim wear, you will be handcuffed for their safety

(Note: This is based on a true story)

From that point on your freedom is in his , hers, or their hands

In Florida to resist or oppose an officer is a crime punishable by a year in jail and a $5000.00 fine

Below is the statute

843.02 Resisting officer without violence to his or her person.Whoever shall resist, obstruct, or oppose any officer as defined in s. 943.10(1), (2), (3), (6), (7), (8), or (9); member of the Florida Commission on Offender Review or any administrative aide or supervisor employed by the commission; county probation officer; parole and probation supervisor; personnel or representative of the Department of Law Enforcement; or other person legally authorized to execute process in the execution of legal process or in the lawful execution of any legal duty, without offering or doing violence to the person of the officer, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

 

And here is the dictionary definition of resistance

verb (used with object)

1: To withstand, strive against, or oppose
2: To withstand the action or effect of
3: To refrain or abstain from, especially with difficulty or reluctance
But remember this; you are not under arrest, you are simply being questioned about a washed up boat that you are looking at
You could
The charge “resisting arrest” is long gone
Now the charge is “resisting /obstructing”
Simply opposing the officer that is questioning you about a crime that he thinks might be committed (But hasn’t) can end with you being imprisoned for up to a year
So if you are handcuffed, in the Florida sun and in pain because of confinement, be careful not to do anything that could be construed as “Opposing” the officer because “justice is extremely expensive” (1)
Although this is based on a true story that occurred in Florida* , it is not about Florida
It is about the basic human right not to be subject to unreasonable search or seizure
Not the 4th amendment right
That is the right that the Government has granted us
That right comes with limitations that are spelled out by the supreme court
DUI roadblocks, warrant-less cell phone data collection, email interception and many other instances
But the 4th amendment was written into law, not to make it have limitations, but rather to state the basic human right
Once written though, it has given those that rule ample opportunity to make excuses to legally side step it
Can you imagine the men who wrote that thought into a legal document being subjected to it today?
Seriously, The men who stood at Lexington to the withering fire of trained British troops?
The men who authored the Boston Tea party?
Can you picture Samuel Adams or George Washington, pulled from their carriages and handcuffed on the side of the road?
Forced to show their permission from the state to travel and summarily searched?
How have we come so far from freedom and so deeply into the hands of tyranny?
And tyranny it it is
What do you feel when you are driving down the highway and a law enforcer pulls up on your bumper?
Seriously, what?
Fear
Heartbeat
Adrenaline
Fear
And why?
Just a ticket right?
Or maybe not
Maybe more
Why fear?
There is a short and simple answer
Tyranny
The power of the Government is being exerted over you without your consent
Did you vote for a 45MPH speed limit?
Were you represented when it became illegal to tint your windows?
Did you beg “your” lawmakers for drug dogs to search vehicles at routine traffic stops?
For the safety of officers did you consent to being searched and handcuffed?
Tyranny, because any encounter can end with you in prison
Or worse, dead
You are at the hands and mercy of a state backed law enforcer
You hope that he will be lenient
The law right now is up to him
Anything that this law enforcer says in court is given the weight of truth
Because the state is on his side
He is not only the face of the state
But also the income of the sate
If you resisted while in handcuffs
It is because the law enforcer interpreted it that way
And only because the lawmakers that “Represent” you have written laws to make it possible
And you are now going to pay the state thousands of dollars
Fines, court costs, Etc.
All so you can pay for your own loss of freedom
It happens on the local level
The state level
The federal level
It is in its most base form
Tyranny
Resist it at your own risk
* In 2015 a group of disabled women were arrested by Florida Fish and wildlife commission  officers at Honeymoon Island state park in Hillsborough county Florida and detained in handcuffs for hours.  All three were charged with resisting/obstructing for refusing the search of a vehicle that two of them did not own. After filing complaints against FWC, one year later, the arresting officer was changed and the charge was changed. All three were later convicted and one served 30 days in prison.
