When They Can't Find Something To Charge You With, They Make It Up

Chris | InformationLiberation

While many law enforcement officers reach into their "felony grab bag" to find some crime (out of hundreds of thousands) to charge tax-slaves with, others don't go through the trouble, choosing instead to simply charge people for crimes they know they didn't commit.

Cpl. Lisa Steed, the Utah Highway Patrol's 2007 "Trooper of the Year," allegedly chose the latter, and while her higher-ups were aware she was likely falsely charging people who were not intoxicated with DUIs, they allegedly hid the evidence from her victim's defense attorneys, despite being required to inform the defense of the evidence against her by law.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:
A supervisor warned in 2010 that Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Lisa Steed, who is under investigation by her own agency, was frequently arresting people for driving under the influence of drugs who had no drugs in their systems.

The supervisor, Sgt. Rob Nixon, wrote a memorandum discussing the questionable arrests and implying Steed was falsely accusing drivers of impairment. Nixon wrote the memo after reviewing 20 of Steedís arrests for drug DUIs.

In seven of those cases, toxicology tests showed the driver had only metabolite, Nixon wrote. Metabolite is the remnants of drugs or pharmaceuticals in the bloodstream, though not necessarily the illegal kind.

Four other drivers had no drugs in their system, according to Nixonís memo, a copy of which was obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune.

Yet in every case, Steed wrote reports claiming the drivers showed signs of impairment, such as dilated pupils and leg and body tremors.

Nixon referred to "a pattern" of conflicting information between Steedís arrest reports and the laboratory results.

"This is something that needs to be addressed before defense attorneys catch on and her credibility along with the DUI squadís credibility is compromised," Nixon wrote.

A UHP spokesman declined to comment on the memo Wednesday.

"Weíre considering that a protected document so weíre not at liberty to discuss the document," said Dwayne Baird, the spokesman.

[...] [Salt Lake City defense attorney Joseph] Jardine said the memo shows the UHP hid Steedís problems from defense lawyers. Legal precedent requires prosecutors also to have been aware of the memo and disclose it to defendants, Jardine said.

"Thatís crazy," Jardine said of withholding the memo. "Thatís exactly contrary to what the law requires them to do."

Steedís credibility was compromised in April. One state judge in Salt Lake County and one in Davis County found Steed had been untruthful on the witness stand during DUI and drug possession cases. The rulings led to a dismissal of charges against both defendants.

Soon after the rulings, the UHP removed Steed from road duty and began its own investigation of Steed. Itís unclear when that investigation will be completed. Skordas said Steed has been reassigned to an administrative job ó out of uniform and without a gun ó while the investigation is under way.

[...]In every case he reviewed, Nixon wrote, Steed claimed the suspect had dilated pupils. Jardine said a check of pupils is a standard part of a DUI field exam and something that cannot be corroborated by a lab test or dashboard video.

"Itís a clever lie because nobody can verify it," Jardine said.

Nixonís memo doesnít say how many of the 20 cases resulted in convictions.
Yeah, well who knows, and who cares, right? God forbid a tax-slave be informed the trooper testifying against them is being investigated for being a known liar and a fraud, what's one more innocent person being jailed for no reason really matter in the bigger picture?

Joking aside, the Massachusetts crime lab was recently ensnared in a similar situation on a much wider scale, Annie Dookhan, a now disgraced analyst at the lab may have tampered with a possible 64,000 drug samples involved in some 34,000 cases, allegedly doing so, among other reasons, to secure longer convictions.

Her higher-ups were no doubt aware of the fraud, yet they covered it up.
In 2004, for instance, Dookhan whipped through some 9,239 samples while her colleagues averaged only one-third that number of drug tests. Last year, the Department of Public Health discovered misconduct by Dookhan, but downplayed it, telling law enforcement mistakes had occurred on only one day and had only affected 90 cases. The department also waited six months before alerting police and prosecutors to the problem.
Of course, the drug laws themselves are the biggest fraud of all, kidnapping and caging someone for consuming plant substance because a group of alcoholic criminals arbitrarily deemed them "illegal" is a crime in itself.

It's time to free the drug users and pack the prisons with the "law enforcers," and throw the criminal congress in there with them.

18444 These police and lab tech falsifying evidence or filing false charges should be in prison for life without parole. They constitute a very real threat to society.

I seriously despise what our government and police have become. Our founding fathers are probably rolling over in their graves.....

6477 Low esteem - yeah, especially these days.Nowadays police departments are known to refuse to hire anyone with an above-average I.Q., and they aggressive cops, not peacemakers. When NYPD first got their new black, S.S.-like uniforms, I think it was the state governor who commented "People aren't afraid enough of police anymore like they ought to be," or words to that effect, and felt the new uniforms were a help in that direction. They're actually arresting people now for "resisting arrest" and getting away with it, nevermind the gratuitous violence for "contempt of cop" (not grovelling abjectly enough)! I've also seen - in court! - a cop say he noticed the person's pupils were dilated, so he knew she was using heroin or something like it. I was working ambulance at the time, and later on I went to the defense attorney and told him that opiates, ALL opiates, cause pupils to constrict, not to dilate; amphetamines cause pupil dilation, and so can LSD. I suggested that he get that cop back on the stand and ask him to define the word "dilate". If he defined it correctly and still insisted that his client's pupils were dilated, then she couldn't have been using opiates. I suggested that he ask if her blood had been tested for opiates (turned out that no, it hadn't been, and he found no drugs or paraphernalia either). The attorney did, the cop was an ignorant thug and stepped all over himself on the stand and the (quite pretty) young lady was found innocent. It was far too late to do any drug testing at that point. As she had been saying all along, the cop was pissed because she'd turned him down, and he'd made up the charges, not really understanding much about drugs. He still went back out on patrol, no penalty.

The drug war is for keeping the price of drugs on the street high so the CIA and the Black Ops it helps to fund have plenty of money, and it's also a great government scam for control of the populace, for removing ever more "rights", and for filling the prisons of the private prison industry, which also adds to the income from the slaves the prisons rent out to industry, and on and on. For the government, it's all gravy - and power. For us, especially since Common Law isn't so common anymore, it's "Heads they win, tails you lose" in court now. If they want you, they lie. That's all it takes. Evidence? Why bother?

1747 This kind of misfeasance harms not only its victims but also the perpetrator's fellow officers as they are all tarred with the same brush and for good reason. Just consider the number of times these miscreants have been backed and protected by their police unions and their fellow officers. These policing organizations don't have the intelligence of a turkey. Why don't they understand that rogue officers hurt them as well as the general public?

97117 It's most likely too late for the American people to take a stand and make a difference as the us military and local law enforcement are basically one in the same. To take a stand would mean that you open yourself up as a target. It's time to go underground. The constitution is not upheld any more. There is no justice. Geez is this why people become terrorists? Not me, I will gladly choke down some cops dick and ratt out my brothers! Fuck you all nazi fuck cunts!
