For anyone who is not paying very close attention there has been a recent rather large influx of the Law Enforcement oriented conspiracies, where various different branches are getting caught left and right for crimes they are committing while on the job.
If you ask me it sure is reminiscent of the Star Wars themed Great Jedi Purge.
This is the dreaded "Order 66" where Emperor Palpatine orders the Jedi slain.
I am of course utilizing this as a metaphor of course, because of the rise of these particular stories caught my attention immediately, and them being caught would be a metaphor for being "slain" by getting caught.
I am of course speaking in term of years here not just in the last few months.
There has been a pattern, if you will, a disturbance, in the force.

Of course, if you were in their position, you probably would have made dumb decisions too. That is, if you were intending to cover your tracks.

Chalk another one up for the LEOs.
How many times does something like this have to happen before people wake up to the fact that we are living in an increasingly obvious Police State?
Cops seem to act with little to know impunity when they screw up.
Not saying that this cop was a bad cop, just that the system is such that when he makes a critical error, his automated response is to cover his tracks.
That is disgusting.
It is amazing. We had a case here in Arkansas a few months back where a crooked cop in a small town shot the FIRE CHIEF IN COURT. The fire chief was pleading a case on behalf of his son and he was shot in court.
The reason I bring it up is because I tried to investigate this myself over the phone and I was stonewalled.
The judge resigned his seat and they just decided to zip their lips over it. I still don't know what is happening with that case, although admitedly I did just sorta give up on it when I became infuriated with the run-around.
Anyhow, what a disgusting display. I believe the man should have just shot the burglar. Of course, I'm sure he agrees in retrospect.

This might surprise many of you.
The officer in question has been cleared of any wrong-doing by a police review panel.

What's the shock all about? If people still can't figure out that law enforcement murdered and tortured some famous religious figure called Christ, continued to burn innocent ladies at a stake in witch hunts and continue to be the biggest criminals against humanity to this day, let it ride.
Let them continue to rape, murder and assault with impunity. Let them continue to frame people and harrass anyone they don't like. Let them continue to work with the media in suppressing truth and broadcasting their lies and deciet. Bottom line, they, with the prosecutors, judges, correction guards, social workers and other authority minded idiots are as evil as any murderer or rapist.

Just for the record I hope these cops get what they deserve.
