ARE “LAW ENFORCEMENT” OFFICERS STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY?
by Sue Richard
(May 20, 2011) — I posted the following on the Daily Bail on Thursday, May 18, 2010 in response to the Channel 5 story a while back about East Tennessee police competing for drug trafficking money on the I-40 Westbound, while ignoring the drugs coming to the area on the I-40 Eastbound. Please consider checking out the Channel 5 video about this story on on the Daily Bail website. It is amazing. Following are my comments to it, which address some of the other corruption taking place in Tennessee.
In response to the above noted video story, this is exactly what is going on in Tennessee with regard to “traffic tickets.” I see and hear about it all the time. Traffic stops are often more about “making money” than making sure the roads are safe. I know this for a fact because I have been pulled over for no reason….then ticketed for speeding! Every Sunday morning on my way to church in N.E. Tennessee, the cops are in “their usual spots” pulling churchgoers over on their way to and from church. Perhaps the cops have found that the churchgoers will pay their tickets and not argue with them out of fear or just not wanting to be deemed a problem. I don’t know, but I did argue with them and told them that I saw exactly what they were doing. I haven’t been pulled over since.
Do the cops here really find the “light Sunday morning traffic,” consisting mostly of churchgoers driving to and from church, “a safety issue” that justifies this heavy Sunday morning presence? You would think the police presence would be more visible on late Friday and Saturday nights when the “drinkers” are out on the roads. Nope. Their presence is far more visible on early Sunday mornings. Almost every lady in my Sunday school class has been pulled over for speeding on her way to church. Hmmm, isn’t this interesting. The cops here seem to be more concerned with generating revenue for the local corrupt government than they are about “protecting and serving” the citizens. Perhaps the local government is putting pressure on them to do this. Whatever their motivation, the fact is this….When someone is pulled over without due cause and ticketed on false charges, clearly your constitutional rights have been violated by the same authorities whose duty is it to protect your rights.
The honest and decent police officers need to expose this unconstitutional and illegal behavior or else ALL police will be eventually categorized as “corrupt” by us citizens. We need our police, but we need “honest” police. The corrupt ones are ruining the reputation of all and causing law-abiding citizens to not trust any of them. This is going to lead to tyranny in this country. To all the decent cops: you need to “man-up” for truth and justice. To all the corrupt and indecent cops: you should be ashamed! This is not what our forefathers died for. And we still have boots on the ground today fighting for our freedom while corrupt cops chase “money” down on the freeway at the expense of taxpayers while ignoring real “safety issues” like the drugs coming in.
For the bad cop such as those who are aware but do not expose this, your day of judgment with your Creator might be the only justice you ever witness. This is something that you might want to consider. Please also consider that it is never too late to change your ways and/or stop this by exposing it. I will pray for the police and the victims of their unconstitutional and illegal acts of treason on this country and in our local communities. Most importantly, I will pray for our troops who are fighting an enemy outside this country while our most damaging enemies are within. Perhaps this is why most of our troops are overseas. I say, “Bring some of them home to “clean up” the terror that is inflicted upon the law-abiding citizens of this country by our own government.” Otherwise, how else are we going to get out constitutional rights back in the hands of “We the People”? Our leaders are failing us miserably! Those exposing the Truth, such as The Post and Email, are our only hope of getting the truth of what is going on out there to the people. It is up to the people to start demanding some honest accountability from their local and federal governments. Otherwise, we can kiss our freedom goodbye.
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
