Law Enforcement: This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

A Dallas deputy gets busted, so does a Sacramento jail doctor, and a crooked cop in Miami is headed for prison. Let's get to it:

In Dallas, a Dallas County sheriff's deputy was arrested Monday on federal felony drug charges. Deputy Standric Choice, 36, is accused of possessing cocaine with the intent to distribute and conspiracy to possess cocaine with the intent to distribute more than 500 grams. Choice was arrested with two other men after meeting with an informant and plotting to rob a cocaine dealer and steal his four kilo stash. Unfortunately for Choice and his crew, the cocaine dealer was actually another agent. Choice was busted at the Dallas Sheriff's Department when he went to work after the robbery.

In Sacramento, California, the medical director of Correctional Health Services for the Sacramento County Jail was arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of writing bogus prescriptions for Oxycontin, the powerful prescription pain reliever. Dr. Peter Dietrich had been under investigation since July 2008 because of the large number of prescriptions he had been writing. Authorities were uncertain whether Dietrich was consuming the pills himself or diverting them into illicit markets. He has since bailed out of jail and is on paid administrative leave. (Of course, there's always a chance that Dietrich was practicing pain medicine the way it should be, as opposed to what is tolerated -- always something to bear in mind with opiate prescribing.)

In Miami, a former Miami police detective was sentenced January 8 to nine years in federal prison for his role in protecting what he thought were shipments of cocaine and stolen goods. Jorge Hernandez had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. He was one of two Miami police officers arrested last May in an FBI sting in which an undercover agent lured them into using their police car to escort shipments of supposed drugs and stolen goods.

And marijuana is the problem....interesting

no doubt, could be the

no doubt, could be the solution for alot of things as we all know, it's not all about smoking it, although that is a another wonderful aspect - 99% small gov't minds dealing w/this "problem"; get some perspective on this, someone in those ranks of the "powers that be"!

pain doc

I am sure the doc would be a great supporter of MJ for pain. Writing fewer prescriptions keep you off the radar. But, occasionally, I imagine a doctor might be dumb enough to write phony scripts to get rich.? But wait! Now that I think about it, why in the world would a doctor destroy his practice by doing something so stupid? I guess I have to think about that a lot more. I agree that it is, most likely, he was busted the same as a lot of other compassionate doctors who listen and treat their patient's pain. But, we all know the DEA and its goons know how to practice medicine better, without even attending one medical school class! NOT!!!

I have been on the other side of that equation! Never got arrested, though!

crooked cops

and we trust our lives in the hands of these people??

OH!!! the wonderment

The wonderment of a whitewashed mind as of the so called professionals that work for our Government aand all around the medical professions. If this way of thinking hadn't been drilled into their minds they might be able to look at the myriad of sides that aren't always crystal clear, nor a part of the mainstream so they get ignored. Ignorance could be a valid reason as to why these "powers that be" do not look at the benefits of a harmless plant like marijuana, but would rather classify it as "devil weed" when it is no more harmful as alcohol or nicotine, if not less.

Oh the wonderment redux

Our politicians are afraid of a relatively harmless plant because the harmful stuff like tobacco and alcohol have big money behind them, and these same people are entrenched in their thinking. I say, let us make up our own minds regarding what we want to use for recreational purposes. Many adults who smoke marijuana are hard-working, productive, tax-paying citizens who would rather come home from work and smoke a bowl than crack open a brew or swig some scotch. Why are we penalized like this?
Also, I don't understand why the DEA is so hot to stop medical marijuana for patients who may not be able to tolerate other pain medications? Can anyone out there explain that to me? I sure would like to know.


Because the drug warriors "know" they are right. About everything! And it's their way or the highway! Keep supplying, easily accessible, drugs to your kids!!? (and a million other reasons they have for supporting the drug cartels) STUPID!

You Think That's Bad Try Living In Colorado...

Here 1 in every 32 people are now either in prison, on parole or on probation...That is over 3 times the National average...And our National average for people incarserated in this country is 5 times that of any other industrialized nation in the world...It is even higher than that of the former Soviet Union...This is partially because of the mandatory parole in Colorado. The reasoning behind that is the Judges and Politicians in this state and their families all own controlling interest in the 7 private prisons and halfway houses (which are all privately owned and operated)...This was brought up with the out of state documents supporting the claim to the State Attorney General a couple of years ago and the group who brought it to the attention of the the Attorney General was quickly destroyed by the powers that be...And their members were charged with filing experious liens against government officials...I have never hear of such a thing but indeed in Colorado it is a Class 4 felony...Just as you can be hung for stealing a horse...Not only is that backwards but it is corrupt...And it gets worse...They state the Prison System is not a money making endeavor...I beg to differ...There is NOT a private corporation in the world that would fund $100,000,000 project without expecting (actually requiring) a payoff on the investment and a profit within 5 years...

So they just keep lying to us...But the one thing they seem to have forgotten is it is our tax dollars that pay their salaries and we vote them into office...THEY WORK FOR US...Not Us Work For Them...We Need To Always Remember That...
