Cop Lied About Being Shot At To Cover Up Car Crash – Town Locked Down, Massive Manhunt Ensues posted 09/03/2015, 7:17 PM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Millis, MA — A new cop on the Millis police force put a whole neighborhood on lock-down and initiated a massive manhunt when he fabricated a story to cover up his car accident.  The officer, 27, said someone in a pickup truck opened fire on his vehicle as they passed in opposite directions on Forest Road.
“My cruiser’s been shot at. I’m at Forest Road. It’s going to be a dark maroon pickup,” the officer radioed to dispatch at 2:17 p.m.
As the story goes, he spun around to avoid the gunfire and seek shelter, whereupon his vehicle slammed into a tree and caught fire.  The fire part is true, as the photo shows, but the gunshots were all his own.
“We have determined that the officer's story was fabricated. Specifically, that he fired shots at his own cruiser as a plan to concoct a story that he was fired upon," Millis Police Sgt. William Dwyer said. "The evidence indicates the shots were not fired by a suspect, and there is no gunman at large in or around the town."
The officer was evaluated for injuries at a local hospital and released.  Sgt. Dwyer said his employment will be terminated.  The officer's fabrication resulted in a giant waste of money and manpower, put residents in a state of fear, and caused a huge embarrassment for law enforcement.

"I am very upset and don’t know how to feel right now.  The public is safe and should feel secure in their homes and the community,” Dwyer said.

It appears the rookie officer may have been playing upon an earlier scare in town.  A bomb threat was called in to Millis Middle School on Wednesday morning, after an anonymous call warned about an imminent crime in town.  No device was found at the school.

The taxpayers of Peoria, Illinois, will be footing the bill for the bumbling thuggishness of their thin-skinned mayor and an all-too-compliant police force.
