The police practice what is known as testilying. These police departments are corrupt and bend, twist, distort, cover-up, and misrepresent the truth to make their lies acceptable to the Court, which takes the police departments word over any accuser 99% of the time. An innocent person doesn't have much of a chance of getting fairness and justice when going against the police department.

Police Departments are so corrupt that the Black Avenger or Black Rambo out in California is a very interesting case.

But to be sure, a bad cop getting killed for kiling a bad cop gets rid of two bad cops. Society wins.

I used to be a cop, about 23 years ago. I always wanted to be in law enforcement and to serve my community and to make a difference. I was about five years in when I realized that many of my "blue brothers" were as dirty as those that we were chasing. Further, there is a "blue line" that you do not cross. You never ever turn on your brother. That last statement is what drew me to police work in the first place. I was a college athlete and grew up in team environments where working as a team to achieve a goal was paramount. However, it became different in law enforcement when I was asked to look the other way, to forge documents, to lie under oath. Those things I could not and would not do because it was unlawful and just plain wrong. When I approached my C.O., i explained what I was dealing with and I was threatened. It was explained to me that if I "rock the boat" in any way shape or form that it would be bad for my career and me and my family's health.
Needless to say, that I resigned the next day because I just couldn't live my life that way. The corruption was so deep (I was on a department of 2000 cops) in the chain of command that I had no idea who to trust. I suspect that the TPD is much like the department I was on in that the trouble runs very deep.
