Illinois Cops Caught Red-Handed Lying Under Oath In Marijuana Case

Chris | InformationLiberation

In order to get a young man imprisoned over petty marijuana charges, five Illinois police officers "allegedly" organized a criminal conspiracy to lie on the stand in order to falsely justify an illegal search of the man's vehicle.

From NBC Chicago:
The dramatic revelation that five officers had allegedly lied on the witness stand in a Glenview drug case, has called into question dozens of other cases which the officers have pending.

The Cook County State's Attorney's office will only say it is reviewing the matter, but privately, authorities are clearly concerned about a case which fell apart, when the officers were confronted with a video which contradicted their sworn testimony.

That moment came two weeks ago, when the officers, three from Chicago and two from Glenview, testified at the Skokie courthouse, in the case of a drug suspect named Joseph Sperling.

"All five officers were telling the same story word for word," said defense lawyer Steven Goldman. "They were caught in a lie."

The officers testified that they pulled Sperling over under the pretense of a traffic stop, asked for his license and insurance, allowed him to exit his vehicle and walk to the rear, then removed a duffel bag containing marijuana. Only then, they said, did they arrest and cuff him.

But Goldman confronted the fifth officer with the squad car video, which clearly showed the officers approaching Sperling's car and immediately taking him out of the car and putting him in handcuffs. Only then did they begin searching, finding the bag in the back seat.

Prosecutors did not even attempt to clean up the mess. They offered no closing argument, as the judge immediately announced she was granting a defense motion to nullify the case.


All five cops were stripped of their police powers, though perjury charges have yet to be filed.

7293 42 U.S.C. 1983, commonly referred to as "section 1983" provides:



Every person who under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, Suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.

7684 To Anonymous at 9:21:

A 1983 is a civil action, which means a plaintiff can only recover damages in the form of monetary compensation, and/or injunctive relief (a court order to cease a harmful and unlawful action); in layman's terms, the victim of police misconduct can sue the cop and/or the state for money and/or relief from the harmful action (if ongoing).

These criminal cops should be prosecuted by the state for crimes committed: conspiracy, perjury, etc. That's the only way they could be criminally punished, as they should be.

9773 Not a problem. Just hack off their pig heads and roll 'em down the street like bowling balls.
Do you expect anything else from the sadistic criminals we know as "police"? Americans better grow out of their kindergarten naivete regarding cops in our society, because we DON'T need them, and all they do is abuse the citizenry so they can squeeze money out of them.
As of right now they're killing about two innocent people per week and getting away with it, because one TV viewing idiot after another thinks "we need cops.....cops are the good guys" because the tube brainwashed them with that erroneous notion.

Be a man. Grow a pair. Defend yourself. Anyone who calls 9-1-1 is a traitorous POS who needs his head removed too.
