The "C" in "Cop" Stands for "Cruelty" and "Corruption"Becky Akers

Is there no end to copsí cruelty and corruption? (Rhetorical question as we all know there isnít.) While we focus on copsí cruelty in Ferguson, their brothers elsewhere uphold the standards on corruption. Houstonís fleece taxpayers, on some of whom they already literally commit highway robbery, with scams for overtime pay.
Hereís how it works: the thug issuing the ticket lists a fellow thug as a witness, regardless of the fact that Thug #2 is miles away. Thug #2 later shows up in court and then files for overtime.
Nor do they limit the game to a couple of players:
Öthree officers at once allegedly were in on it along the Katy Freeway. At 11:30 p.m. at the 610 Loop, Officer Manzanales listed Garcia as a witness on his ticket. But at 11:31 p.m, Garica also is a witness at Beltway 8, on a ticket Officer Rosa wrote. But records show at 11:31 p.m., Rosa is a witness over at Highway 6, on a ticket written by Officer Garcia.Naturally, the union defends these criminals. So does the chief thug, and on similar grounds:
Ray Hunt, president of the police officer's union, told KHOU that these officers are considered "innocent until proven guilty."Um, excuse me. Isnít assuming that citizens are innately and unquestionably guilty without any evidence precisely†how cops operate? One writes a ticket that alleges speeding or some other infraction, and bingo, the taxpayer is automatically guilty.
I say Houstonís PD can jolly well take what itís been dishing out †lo these many decades. And Iíll bet Monnie Matthews, who sent me this story, agrees.
