Video Catches Police Informant Planting Cocaine On Shop Owner Before Raid

Chris | InformationLiberation

A police informant was caught on video planting cocaine on an innocent business owner's store counter, the informant then took photographs of the planted drugs and gave them to police.

This manufactured "evidence" was then used by the police as a pretext to raid the innocent shop owner's business, shut it down and throw him in jail.

This same informant, who has since "gone missing," had already assisted in the take-down of seven other victims who have all been notified since this evidence surfaced.

This is a perfect example of how drug laws are being used to shut down law abiding citizens' businesses under the flimsiest of pretexts.

From the Daily Gazette:
SCOTIA — The Scotia shop owner cleared of drug charges earlier this year by his own surveillance system has filed the precursor to a lawsuit against the two police agencies that worked on the investigation.

Meanwhile, Schenectady County District Attorney Robert Carney said the informant used in the case — who is seen in store surveillance video planting the evidence — was a factor in drug and weapons cases against seven defendants. Attorneys in each of those cases either have been notified or are being notified of the informant’s involvement.

The existence of the notices of claim was disclosed Tuesday by shop owner Donald Andrews’ attorney, Kevin Luibrand, who played the surveillance video for members of the media. The video shows two visits by the wired, unidentified informant, with the videos both showing the informant retrieving something from the back of his pants. In the second visit, when Andrews had his back turned, the informant placed what was identified as cocaine on the counter, secretly photographed it and later presented it to investigators as evidence.

Luibrand said Andrews wanted his story and the video made public to prove that he was innocent and that people are set up. He also wanted it publicized to give more credibility to those in similar situations who don’t have a multi-camera surveillance system to prove their innocence.

“This is the first occasion that I’ve seen in 30 years where this has been captured on video,” Luibrand said. “It’s alleged, it’s talked about, lawyers often hear ‘I didn’t do it, he set me up.’ Well, there’s Exhibit A. That’s how it’s done.”

Andrews is the owner of Dabb City Smoke Shop in Scotia, a store that sells pipes, T-shirts, hookahs, incense, ashtrays and other items. He was accused of selling cocaine to the undercover informant twice in late March. His shop was then raided in early April, and he was arrested.

He spent the weekend in jail before he could come up with the $30,000 bond. When he realized what he was being accused of, he had investigators examine his surveillance system, which was among the items seized in the raid.

When they did, the charges against Andrews were dropped and the informant himself was sought on drug and perjury charges. The informant, who is not being identified, remains at large.

17884 Guess who is enforcing the informant.
That's right.
Note: There is no such thing as a corrupt police department/-man in the US, of course.

678 @Story: The informant, who is not being identified, remains at large.

Gee, all of a sudden they won't say who he is and can't find him. Gave him a ticket to Vancouver and shoved him on the bus...typical damage control.

65110 So this is how it works. Such people plant false proof which then leads to the arrest of the targeted innocent individual.

17375 All governments fucking suck! (Seriously, they are parasitic by [un]nature).

@65110, define: "innocent."

"I bet they don't teach this in public schools." - 65110

Most criminals hone their skills in prison; such are public schools these days. Here in Zeitgeist (aka exter california) all the schools, k - 12, have fences with locked gates round them. The government says it's to prevent "school shootings," but, I say, "it's easier to shoot a chicken in a cage." (I think my notion speaks to this "story" though, you could also use the metaphor: "sitting ducks.")

If we were talking "reich philosophy," this story shouldn't come as a shock to anyone.
Apply a great deal of pressure, make the strong carry the weak, the strong in-turn eliminate the weak, then, the strongest will, themselves, be eliminated.


You know, if you stop reading these stories, they'll cease to exist; same logic can be applied to governments, laws, hierarchies.....
