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

Becky Akers

Is there no end to cops’ cruelty and corruption? (Rhetorical question as we all know there isn’t.) While we focus on cops’ cruelty in Ferguson, their brothers elsewhere uphold the standards on corruption. Houston’s fleece taxpayers, on some of whom they already literally commit highway robbery, with scams for overtime pay.

Here’s 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:
…three 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."

Police Chief Charles McClelland offered a similar perspective to KPRC-TV. "I can't assume there's an irregularity. I can't assume the officers falsified a government document. I can't assume anything until I have proof or evidence," he told the news station.
Um, excuse me. Isn’t 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 Houston’s PD can jolly well take what it’s been dishing out  lo these many decades. And I’ll bet Monnie Matthews, who sent me this story, agrees.
