DIRTY COPS

   Wish I had someone to help me with the dirty cops in Jacksonville.  After seeing a hit and run, and getting a photo of the tag and trying to give it to the victim, the thug follows us back to the scene and attacks my friend breaking 3 ribs and puncturing a lung. UNBELIEVABLY, the Dirty Cops  falsify OUR STATEMENTS, and even one dirty cop I never spoke to FABRICATED MY STATEMENT to make US look like the bad guys, which is what the one cop said he would do ''if you want to push this, we can write the report to make you the agressors''.  Internal affairs lied along with the manager, who was the victim, and the thug WAS HER EMPLOYEEE, who she just ran off for doing a poor job.  They let the thug off with the FELONY ASSAULT AND HIT AND RUN, and onlly got tickets for  Improper Backing, NO DRIVER'S LICENSE AND NO PROOF OF INSURANCE...   My friend was told point blank by the Dirty Zone Commander ''I will not take your assault and battery complaint''... and the Dirty State Attorney's office in Jacksonville Fla won't even talk to us, as the dirty cops won't even send the dirty cop reports to them to look at.. CORRUPTION OVERFLOWS IN JACKSONVILLE FLA......  Try to be a good Samaritan and YOU BECOME THE BAD GUY... I WOULDN'T STOP TO PISS ON A COP IF HE WAS ON FIRE....
