There are corrupt police officers in every department and the higher up you go the more vicious they can get – although not all officers are evil it is problem in America – all because of moral degradation.
It is important that True Believers in Jesus Christ stand up to injustice, follow the law but also be obedient to authority.
There are way too many innocent people being harmed by corrupt lawyers, police officers and judges who are in it for money.
Proverbs 29: 2 – When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn
Unfortunately, America is getting the government the people deserve. If people began to go back to Jesus Christ, repent of their sins, clean up their act we wouldn’t have such corruption running around the streets of America.
Proverbs 28:2 – For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
2 Baltimore Detectives Caught in Decades of Heinous Crimes, Racketeering, Robbery and Planting Fake Evidence
Two Baltimore police detectives were convicted of robbery, racketeering, and conspiracy Monday in a trial that’s part of an ongoing federal investigation into corruption among rogue members of the city’s beleaguered police force.
On Monday evening, acting U.S. Attorney Stephen Schenning said he was hopeful that the police corruption case “will begin a long difficult process of examining how” the Baltimore force polices its own.
“We hope that police officers live up to the honor and privilege of the badge,” Schenning said on the courthouse steps.
The trial was dominated by four ex-detectives who testified that the police department’s elite Gun Trace Task Force was actually made up of thugs with badges who stole cash, resold looted narcotics and lied under oath to cover their tracks. They detailed acts of astonishing police criminality, including armed home invasions, stretching back to 2008.
“We recognize that this indictment and subsequent trial uncovered some of the most egregious and despicable acts ever perpetrated in law enforcement,” DeSousa said.
Much of the testimony during the trial focused on Gun Trace Task Force members who pleaded guilty, including the out-of-control unit’s onetime supervisor, Sgt. Wayne Jenkins. He was portrayed as a wildly corrupt officer leading his unit on a tireless quest to shake down civilians and find “monsters” — bigtime drug dealers with lots of loot to steal.
His subordinates testified that the onetime amateur mixed martial arts fighter told his officers to carry BB guns in case they ever needed to plant weapons and occasionally posed as a federal agent when shaking down targets.
Former colleagues said Jenkins’ sledgehammer approach to policing extended to having actual sledgehammers — along with crowbars, grappling hooks, black masks and even a machete — stored in his police-issued car to ramp up illegal activities.
Public defenders say there could be a few thousand tainted cases stretching back to 2008 involving the jailed members of the disbanded Gun Trace Task Force. So far, roughly 125 cases involving the eight indicted Baltimore law enforcers have been dropped.
