Wow a Police agencies wonder why they often get sued and their agencies budgets take a major hit.
This tactic is so so typical. And Police agenices often deny there is no "code of silence" .......B.S!
This Reserve Sheriffs should be commended for his actions!!!!

District Attorneys "BRAND" individuals for life , even when with time they are found inncent.
This is the reason masses citizens should attack all District Attorneys with "EXTREME PREDIGOUS" and no reguard for their lifes. Let them DIE soon ! Give them DEATH. Without exception...
They will destroy anyones life for any reason, same as "GANSTERS" which they and their soldiers are !!!!

The Distict Attorney has "nothing" to do with the dismissal of this fine EX-Reserve Officer who turned in a crooked cop on the force.
To blame for this type of crap is: The Contra Costa Sheriffs Upper and Mid-Management, Internal Affairs Investigators, C.C.C Board of Syupervisors and the Contra Costa Human Reseources Management as well.
Hold these indivduals accountable for the their actions or "lack there of"!
Just think before you vote "YES" the next time there is a tax measure on the ballot requesting "US" tax payers to pay more for police services and equipment.
Its these types unprofessional tactics employed by Police Management that hurts the publics trust in the Contra Costa Counties area Police agencies as a whole.
They are sending us "the public' a mixed and distrubing message of trust and ethical behavior within their rank in file.
When they get sued again and loose by the case settling out of court its the Citizens' money that they are playing games with and waisting away.

The "District Attorney" is the responsible "ONE"... Who ever hold that title and posistion, is the "KING" of the County...
The "KING'S" men (Soldiers)are the "Sheriff" and City Police.
They are the weapons of Local Government. They are the one who "STEAL" Liberty...
Without "LIBERTY" there will be no "FREEDOM" !
"Liberty is Freedom"

When Governments get "SUED", that is a self supporting effort of misconduct. Which supports the Legal system of operations. Government wants to be sued. Sued till Freedom Falls. The ultimate Government is a "Dictatorship". Which is very near in Contra Costa. A Government which arrest for crimes one might commit in the future. THAT IS A DICTATORSHIP !!!
