Police Busted Framing Innocent People

Documented Corruption In Law Enforcement

Police have been busted framing innocent people in numerous ways.  For example:

  • A New York police investigation supervisor for criminal investigations in seven counties admits that he and another lieutenant faked fingerprint evidence so often that the New York Times called it an “almost routine fabrication of evidence in criminal case”
  • A former New York City narcotics detective testified in court that planting drugs on innocent people was common practice, a quick and easy way to boost arrest numbers.
  • A deputy sheriff in Florida said: “Planting evidence and lying in your reports are just part of the game
  • A Pasadena, California police officer bragged on tape about how he framed innocent folks
  • A Michigan policeman admitted to framing an innocent man for drugs

They’ve also been busted planting weapons on people, as “justification” for shooting them.

Postscript: Most police officers are honest. But given the enormous power they yield – and since the risk of being killed by law enforcement is much greater than being killed by a terrorist, at least for some sectors of society – there should be zero tolerance for police corruption.

    Why are you trying to cast aspersions to our system? Don’t we have enough problems here in America? What is your point!?

      if the goal is democracy, then an informed populace is necessarily the first step.


    And, then there are those who trust the System? Therefore, it is precisely these types of people ” Believers” who foolishly believe in a system of debauched cruelty that make it impossible for change. Then, there are the “Day Dreamers,” who want to live in a Lie. Truthfully, this article does not suprise me, I expect it, and much worse.

    Beg to differ. Not one honest cop.
    In each of the cited cases the police, their colleagues and superiors resisted the investigation and prosecution of their peer’s criminality and misconduct.
    In none of the cited cases did police colleagues or their uniformed superiors initiate the arrest or investigate the criminal misconduct of fellow policemen.

    it’s become a machine, in much the same way as the ‘health care’ industry. in the eyes of the pharmaceutical companies, doctors exist solely to write prescriptions. they are awarded with actual cash bonuses for meeting quotas.

    in the eyes of the private prison corporations the criminal ‘justice’ system exists solely to fill cells and increase profits: 23 cents an hour: The perfectly legal slavery happening in modern-day America

    In skyrocketing prison populations, corporations and the government have a pool of powerless, exploitable workers

    the natural outcome of running healthcare/criminal justice/etc. as a machine is the creation a class of self-anointed bearded sages who intone ‘take your statin’ even though you need to treat 60 people for a period of 5 years in order to prevent just one heart attack. or, from the criminal justice machine: Predicting Recidivism Risk: New Tool in Philadelphia Shows Great Promise

    Tool uses random forest modeling to identify probationers likely to reoffend within two years of returning to the community.

    …what is unique is that the tool uses “random forest modeling,” a sophisticated statistical approach that considers the nonlinear effects of a large number of variables with complex interactions.

    (how is this not today’s version of phrenology???)

    the damage done by these pseudo-scientists is incalculable.

    Chemist who falsified drug tests in criminal cases goes to jail herself

    Judge Carol S. Ball, who delivered Dookhan’s sentence in Suffolk County Superior Court in Boston, said in her ruling that “the consequences of her behavior, which she ought to have foreseen, have been nothing short of catastrophic.” She continued, “Innocent persons were incarcerated, guilty persons have been released to further endanger the public, millions and millions of public dollars are being expended to deal with the chaos Ms. Dookhan created, and the integrity of the criminal justice system has been shaken to the core.”

    As of Friday, the state had spent a total of $8.5 million responding to the drug lab crisis, AP reports, and another $8.6 million was authorized to be spent in the current fiscal year, according to Alex Zaroulis, spokeswoman for the state Executive Office for Administration and Finance.

    How the flawed ‘science’ of bite mark analysis has sent innocent people to prison

    In 2009, the National Academy of Sciences published a congressionally commissioned report on the state of forensic science in the courtroom. The report was highly critical of a wide range of forensic specialties, from fingerprints to hair and fiber analysis to blood spatter analysis. It found that many of the claims forensic analysts have been making in courtrooms for decades lacked any scientific foundation to back them up. Yet judges and juries have taken and continue to take those claims as foolproof science, often because the experts themselves frame them that way.

    There is no better example of the pitfalls of allowing junk science into the criminal justice system than bite mark analysis: The field has helped convict a disturbingly high number of people later proven to be innocent. The National Academy of Sciences found it to be lacking of any basis in science. And its members have a poor track record of policing themselves.

    This nation claims to be a nation of laws – yet the practice of law is finding arguments to get around the law and undermine fairness.

    “Most police officers are honest” ????
    If most police were honest, they would report and arrest the ones that are not.
