This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

A Texas cop gets caught pilfering pain pills, a Georgia sheriff's captain gets nailed for trying to frame a woman, and a Louisiana police chief is accused of having sticky fingers. Let's get to it:

In Canton, Texas, a Canton police officer was arrested last Thursday on charges he used his position as an officer to obtain prescription pain pills by fraud. James Melvin Bradshaw, 32, is accused of telling people with pain pill prescriptions that they needed to turn excess pills over to him on at least six different occasions. He now faces six counts of obtaining a controlled substance by misrepresentation. He's looking at up to four years in federal prison on each count.

In Atlanta, a former Murray County Sheriff's Office captain pleaded guilty last Wednesday to trying to set up for arrest a woman who had complained about sexual advances by a local judge. Michael Henderson and Murray County Deputy Josh Greeson had been fired in August after a local woman was arrested on meth possession charges in the wake of her complaints against the judge. Henderson had told deputies that a vehicle that fit the description of her car was carrying drugs, and Greeson pulled her over, found the meth, and charged her. An investigation found that the meth was planted in her vehicle, and the charges against her were dropped. Henderson pleaded guilty to obstructing a pending civil rights investigation -- he had lied to investigators looking into the case by denying that he had issued the heads up for the vehicle. The judge who was accused of sexual impropriety in the case has resigned after it was revealed he was also pre-signing warrants for officers to use. Henderson is looking at up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on May 31.

In Jennings, Louisiana, a former Jennings police chief pleaded not guilty last Friday to charges he stole items from the department's evidence room. Johnny Lassiter was arrested in January after an audit of the evidence room found several items missing, including seized drugs. He is charged with theft over $1,500, malfeasance, and obstruction of justice.

War on drugs breaches separation of powers

The defining feature of the global war on drugs is the reverse onus of proof: if prohibited drugs are found on your premises or among your belongings, and if you had no knowledge of the drugs, legislation requires you to prove your innocence. Whether the reverse burden of proof is a "legal burden" (proof on the "balance of probabilities" or the "preponderance of evidence"), or merely an "evidential" or "evidentiary" burden, there is no guarantee that an innocent person will be able to satisfy it. Thus the power to convict is effectively given to those who are willing and able to plant suitable evidence. This is clearly unconstitutional because it violates the separation of powers, according to which the power to convict is a judicial power and is vested exclusively in the courts.

War on Drugs

I am sorry I just can't find a power granted the the Federales regarding "Power" to impose any drug laws whatsoever.

I do remember when they outlawed Booze they amended the Real Constitution.  Then they re-amended the Real Constitution again, to re-legalize Booze again.  Amazing.

For nearly a century we have been living under the fake constitution since the Federal Reserve Act and the incorporation of the 14th Amendment by the Black Robe Evil Justices to expand federal jurisdiction and along with the infamous "Commerce Clause."  The Commerce Clause has no bounds according the the low-life court. 

Domestic terrorism by the court to destroy our rule of law has been complete.   Obama-Care or should I say totally control care put the final nail in the coffin.

We are finally doomed to fail, Fascism has been the rule of law for some time now. 

Peace

Drug Enforcement Scandal Erupts in West Valley, Utah

A big police drug squad scandal is brewing outside Salt Lake City.  Nineteen drug cases have been dismissed so far, and the total number of dismissed cases could exceed 100.  No one is saying much, yet. 

There’s also a suspicious police shooting that’s part of the investigation:
