Oh, yeah! Remember when Palmdale/Lancaster was a nice place to live? Can we assume by "forged documents" that the arrested are some of the crimmigrants?

I wonder how many of these cases will be dropped or thrown out due to the hand full of badge wearing criminals that are assigned to the Palmdale and Lancaster sheriff stations. Fabricated witness statements and falsified evidence are the name of the game in the Antelope Valley.
It doesn't matter what happens or what the truth is; it's how they write it up.
I'm all for stopping the criminals but law enforcement officials should not be fighting crime with crime.

Are you referring to the "day-laborers", who gather at the liquor store at 55th East and Pearblossom Blvd. referred to as 4 Points? It's the Caucasian rednecks who steal mail, break into cars, beat up their old ladies and slam and smoke meth. Palmdale and Lancaster are:

I concur. People do not realize that police and sheriffs are just people doing a job. Just because they are police officers and sheriffs does not make them more honest than the next human being. There are lots of bad law enforcement officials out there that are doing dirt and never have to answer for it. I am not saying that all law enforcement officials are dishonest. I am sure that there are a lot of good people in these agencies, but when the good ones see the bad ones doing things they shouldn't be doing and don't say anything about it or report it, it makes all of them look bad.

And what would you consider to be the real criminals? Since its obvious that arresting gamg members who provide nothing but intimidation, violence, drug dealing, burglary etc arent really criminals.

Im not going to deny that racial profiling doesnt happen yet when I see minorities pulled over for the most part they had been driving like retards or chances are something came up on the computer leading to the stop. People need to stop pulling the racial profiling shit and realize that a huge majority of the time the people are getting pulled over or arrested for the right reason.
