Yep, I'm serious. I have over 13 years of service without committing a crime. I have uncles, cousins, and a brother in law who have all worn a badge and not committed crimes. One cousin who screwed up ended up getting fired, which was a slap on the hand that should have gotten him in deeper shiat.

I have zero love for dirty cops and wouldn't think twice about turning one in. Actually had a few former coworkers who are currently or have been in prison for criminal acts committed on or away from the job.

If this were true of every police officer in this country, we would be damn close to a passable Paradise.

In all, a dozen officers tied to the narcotics unit have been indicted after their work came under scrutiny following the January 2019 drug raid in which Dennis Tuttle, 59, and his wife, Rhogena Nicholas, 58, were killed.

Brosephus: I'll inject this bit about Gerald Goines early in the thread...

A 16-year-old drug case involving George Floyd was among the hundreds of cases connected to ex-Houston police Officer Gerald Goines that are being reviewed by prosecutors, according to Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg.

Speaking to Khambrel Marshall during an interview that will air on Sunday's edition of Houston Newsmakers, Ogg said that Floyd, a Houston native who died while being detained by police in Minnesota on Memorial Day, was convicted by Goines as part of a single-witness drug case in 2004.

There are likely dozens upon dozens of people with criminal records who have been victims of dirty cops and the system screwed them over. There should be some severe type of punishment for dirty cops to make others fear the consequences themselves.

Dun-dun-DUN

Why is it that the war on drugs creates narcotics units that are just as corrupt, incompetent, and brutal as the people they're trying to "protect society against" in the first place?

/its a trick question - we know why, we're just saying the quiet part outloud now.

George Floyd did not die while being detained George Floyd, he died while being tortured in order to compel him to get in the back of a police vehicle.

That anyone is okay with torturing someone simply to get them into a vehicle is ridiculous.
Anyone okay with that should punch their own face.

I wish I could believe you, Serpico. I really do. But police have their own law of omertà, and just like in the military where we are told we must disobey illegal orders it's far easier to claim that you would do something in theory than it is actually doing it in practice.

In a statement Monday, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo blamed the faulty search warrant on Goines and Bryant and said the other officers, including Gallegos, "responded appropriately to the deadly threat posed to them during (the warrant's) service."

But they didn't react appropriately did they? You want us to believe it's appropriate to return fire when YOU ARE THE AGGRESSOR but it's not. The point of a no knock warrant is to save lives. Clearly they don't work, as it's not safe to attack a house unannounced and there's no way to make it safe.

Stop swat style training. Stop no knock warrants. Teach police officers to respect the system and believe in it.

All anyone has to remember is that HPD is still going with the story that a disabled vet, with debilitating injuries from later car crashes who allegedly sat around and smoke MJ all day shot 4 officers in during a chaotic non knock raid with this 6 shot revolver.

The Houston police chief used to be the Austin police chief. Austin hired him because they thought having a hispanic in charge would lead to less police violence. Instead, it went up, because cops are cops first, and what ever else they are second.

The two civilians they shot were white. So there's gotta be consequences. Next time, cops need to stop with this PC bullshiat and stick to lying about drugs being sold only in homes of black people.

The messed up part is the bullet that killed the husband had the wife's DNA one it, and the gun said the be used by the husband was not of the same caliber that hit the cops. Also let us not forget, the cops killed the family dog during the raid.

Jeebus.
Not that I didn't already know just how pointless the war on drugs is, however the realization that it was simply the form that Jim Crowe took after the civil rights movement ended sundown towns and segregation came later in life.

I love stories like this and want more of them.  Busting bad cops is the only way for a society to work properly.

This kind of reminds me of MLB back a few years ago.  They were getting criticized every time someone new got hit for steroids.  I looked at it the other way.  Seeing oversight where there previously hadn't been any is a big step in the right direction.

That is how much a badazz, hard corps, drug dealing gang banger Tuttle was.  He could shoot other caliber bullets from his magically appearing 6 shot .357 and hit 4 targets while under assault from multiple fronts.  Dude had to be a stone cold, highly trained Project Treadstone killer.   The police really should be answering to the NSA now for retiring one of their assets without authorization.
