What kind of a Police Force is it when you don't even check the record of it's potential people that would be working as Policemen, and further cannot resolve a simple crime within it's own inner-offices?

And all he gets is probation? What is wrong with the so called system???? A police chief STOLE evidence pleads guilty and gets no jail time, just a slap on the wrist. Doesn;t shock me though. If it was you or I we would be in jail, but if a cop does it, it's OK. This is why cops the couple good cops get bad names. CHRIS WADE IS A FRAUD AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
