Meddling Kids: And They Would Have Gotten Away With It … 7/27/15

Every week at CopBlock.org we bookmark many stories of police abuse, corruption and brutality; as well as other stories of an entire justice system gone awry. Unfortunately we do not get to write about all of them in detail due to time constraints. Yet we often feel like we forgot something at the end of the week by letting all of these stories go untold to our readers. So in the interest of exposing more of the police state folly we now bring you this weekly column of headlines of law enforcement and its corollaries in the news around the internet.

July 20th through 26th, 2015

“When police took Valencia to the jail he had severe, infected sores on his face.

That they just don’t have the time or the manpower to take a suspect like this for treatment and then back to jail.”

Family of Hit-and-Run Victim Distrust Police Investigation
“On July 9, police officials said they were investigating a Tampa police officer after forensic evidence matching [the hit-and-run victim’s] DNA was found underneath a department vehicle. The next day, police identified 26-year-old Jeremy Dabush, an officer on the Tampa Police Department’s Rapid Offender Control team, as the vehicle’s driver. Police said Dabush was on duty in the unmarked police vehicle at the time McIntire was run over.”

‘Whistleblower’ John Connors Sues Police Chief, Two Commissioners & Portsmouth
“Through attorney Paul McEachern, Connors claims he’s been unlawfully deprived of his “constitutionally protected right of speech as a whistleblower for publicly disclosing unethical activities of employees of the Portsmouth Police Department which he observed as a citizen and next door neighbor of the elderly target of those activities.” He claims that police officials and the city acted in concert to deprive him of his “well-established right to speak publicly on a matter of public concern guaranteed to all citizens by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.”

Indianapolis Police Chaplain Faces Prostitution Charges
“Well he tells me we have a lot in common. And I said, ‘Oh we do?’ And he said, ‘What do you think I do?’ And I really didn’t care you know. We weren’t there for that, but he intently wanted to share. And he goes, ‘I’ve seen a lot of things like you Susan.’ And I said, ‘Oh really?’ And he said, ‘I’ve seen a lot of bloody things in my field and really bad crimes.’ And then he goes, ‘Can you figure out what I do?’ And I said, ‘Are you a policeman?’ And that’s when he showed me that gold and blue badge. And I go, ‘Oh you’re a police officer.’ And he goes, ‘Well I’m a chaplain.’ And I said, ‘Oh that’s why you see so much.’ And he said, ‘Yeah we have a lot in common, we like to help other people.’ And I said, ‘What you do has gotta be very difficult.’ And he said, ‘Well, what you do Susan is very difficult too.’ And I said, ‘Why are you telling me this?’ And he just goes, ‘I feel really comfortable with you.’ And he said he just wanted to get really emotionally close with me. And he goes, ‘Well we can be best friends.’ And I hesitated and said, ‘Well maybe.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

The Police Are Still Out of Control – I Should Know by Frank Serpico
“Even now, I do not know for certain why I was left trapped in that door by my fellow police officers. But the Narcotics division was rotten to the core, with many guys taking money from the very drug dealers they were supposed to bust. I had refused to take bribes and had testified against my fellow officers. Police make up a peculiar subculture in society. More often than not they have their own moral code of behavior, an “us against them” attitude, enforced by a Blue Wall of Silence. It’s their version of the Mafia’s omerta. Speak out, and you’re no longer “one of us.” You’re one of “them.”
