    There must come a real conversation about the policies that allow criminal behavior to go unaccounted for. equal Justice For all is the basis of the 14th amendment. That includes being held accountable. No is supposed to be above the law.

    While city leaders bemoan the lack of funds to invest in community programs, they’re paying for law suits caused by irresponsible law enforcement. The Council should vote to contract with the OC Sheriff Dept for services, stipulating in the contract that existing city officers be phased out, i.e., distributed among OCSD countywide, to break up the cabal in blue. SAPD brass should also be replaced. The good thing about OCSD is that officers and brass can be moved around the county, thereby preventing the establishment of cliques behind the badge that controls the city.

      OCSD is no better.

      Haven’t you been paying attention to all the jail scandals (illegal informants, mistreatment of inmates, jail escapes, etc….)?

      You’d just be jumping out of one fire and right back into another.

    Holy Sh*t we are screwed. We need PUBLIC SECTOR REFORM- now! This is the craziest thing I have ever heard!

    The best part was “…claims the Officer ate MJ brownies…DA did not prosecute, but did not say if they were drug tested…”

    Really?

    It’s on the video isn’t it?

    The cops got a pass from ol T-Rack on that one.

    • LFOldTimer

      That’s laughable, isn’t it?

      The cop got caught red-handed on camera eating munchies that were property of the weed dispensary and was never drug tested??? HA!

      The system protected the cop. Logically speaking – the system is dirtier than the cop. And no one can really argue with the logic. It is what it is.

      They always tell us that the large majority of cops are good. Then why don’t any of the so-called good cops ever snitch off the bad cops? Any cop who refuses to drop a dime on a bad cop is a bad cop.

    As I’ve stated so many times, the fix is in.

    Now the courts back a cop caught on video during a search warrant destroying privately owned video equipment and consuming products (of unknown origin) owned by a private business.

    It’s one thing not being able to trust cops. It’s a whole different matter being unable to trust the courts.

    We live in very dangerous times.

    The criminals in blue win again, while the public and citizens lose on a multitude of levels; as does the rule of law. This is becoming a similar story played out over and over by the ruling corrupt and criminal overlords throughout OC government, and their lapdog public employee and union segregates.
