"This has nothing to do with criminal charges against individuals or checking into their immigration status," said Strike Force attorney Joe Flynn - - - - - - - - this coming from someone representing a bunch of lying thieves. Why wouldn't anybody trust him?
They have been convicted? Guess I missed that...and they all did it...geeezzz....musta missed that too.
We get to see comments bashing law enforcement but we can't comment on the Al Flowers article. Is it because he is black and that would be racist?
I was thinking the same thing.
Sounds like this is a bonanza for the Lawyers. Whatever the cost is now to take care of this, you can multiply by at least 10.
They know where they got the stuff, who's it was and where they live. Maybe it would do the cops, who took the stuff, some good if they apologized too.
These "officers of the law" should be ashamed of themselves. Complaining about the cost of administration and the time it takes to do things properly. The police department actually created crime victims.
Here is a suggestion. FOLLOW THE LAW! Once you break the law you certainly should not complain about the time and money needed to correct your own mistakes.
Every time I see a statement from the police about the investigation I simply have to shake my head. Who do they think they are?
At least they picked the correct name for the department. The department was as close to organized crime as I have ever seen.
then you shouldn't get your property back. I feel sorry for the illegal aliens who would call if the circumstances were different, but maybe this will be a good wake-up call to fix your status or move somewhere were you don't have to live in the shadows.
Do investigators ask victims of all crimes to call the PD in order to recover their property? Or, does someone (officer, property officer, investigator) call the victim whose property has been recovered? It appears the citizens involved are either the owners of the (illegally) confiscated property or likely know the rightful owner. These citizens are also the "victims" of a crime apparently perpetrated by police/sheriff's deputies. What's missing in the statement from the "Trust Fund" is amnesty! Is each case in which property is not claimed, meaning no witness to the manner in which it was confiscated, minimize the chance to prosecute the involved law enforcement personnel?
maybe it's because they shredded all those documents (i.e. evidence) that they do not know who to call to return it.....
