Why Police Lie Under Oath

Thousands of people plead guilty to crimes every year in the United States because they know that the odds of a jury’s believing their word over a police officer’s are slim to none. As a juror, whom are you likely to believe: the alleged criminal in an orange jumpsuit or two well-groomed police officers in uniforms who just swore to God they’re telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but? As one of my colleagues recently put it, “Everyone knows you have to be crazy to accuse the police of lying.”

My experience, and it's much more extensive than I like

is that cops begin by telling a small false hood and if there is any type of defense will proceed to all out perjury to protect their self from any type of legal ramifications. There is to my knowledge absolutely no exception to this rule. Juries are as much to blame as the cop's, I was 52 years old with absolutely no criminal record when I started sticking my nose into some unsavory politics in my County and locality. A couple of Judges whom I tweaked the nose's of have been recently sent to the slammer for the wholesale locking of juvies up in a facility they had a financial stake in. Before this happened I and my wife were harassed at home by a group of juveniles. Although I was the only one assaulted the police deemed it necessary to force my arms behind my back to cuff me. I have severe arthritis from a screw inserted in my right shoulder in 1973. They destroyed my shoulder in doing this and charged me with resisting arrest due to my arm not being flexible enough to go back without resistance. The lies began immediately which was not the worst of it. It was discovered that the instigating officer was not a legal police officer under registration requirements in the state. This was brought before the jury yet I have become the first person in this state to be convicted of resisting arrest by an individual who had no more power to lay a hand on me than an average Joe. The sitting judge in the case manipulated time as well as refused to allow me to interview witness's. Keep the jury sitting until about 20 minutes before lunch, his almost two hour delay in appearing in court while we were all chilling our heels,assured what time the case would conclude, send them to deliberate and don't be surprised they come back quick with a verdict allowing them to go home. I'm also pretty certain that the jury foreman was a plant, thats how things are done in Luzerne County Pa. To add insult to injury I was cruising around the internet and found a site of supposed registered sex offenders which to my dismay had my name on it, it seems that screaming out the word FXXX while your shoulder is being torn out of it's socket is enough to categorize you as an offender. I can no longer find this site so hopefully this was an temporary aberration. BTW even after the judges were sentenced to lengthy prison term for their slavery scheme, the DA who was in the middle of all this and who had to be aware was elected to a judgeship, so much for responsible voters.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

That's horrible

And thank you for fighting for the truth. It's a shame the very system that is supposed to do this is the biggest perpetrator of wrongdoing.

What is the punishment for saying FXXX when a pretend police officer twists your bad arm behind your back? How long, fines did you receive? Appeal?

I recieved 6 months probation

And never paid a dime for the trial, the supervision or any of the fines levied, kind of strange if you ask me. As far as appeals, the President Judge of the State Supreme Court is from my municipality and is as corrupt as they come. I instructed the attorney to file an appeal but guess what, never happened. This clown was assigned a judgeship to replace one of the clowns they locked up.

I am a huge fan of VICE.com. Kinda ironic they posted their own story on this same subject yesterday:

My experience..

I've had the four cops lie under oath on 3 occasions.

Cops lie for a living.

The bigger the government gets, the more problems that we will have with false charges and nuisance suits. It is a lot cleaner than drones.

Jury Power

It's important that everyone understands the importance of jury duty which can stop corrupted police:

"The primary function of the independent juror is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from the tyrannical abuses of power by government."

The Constitution guarantees you the right to trial by jury. This means that government must bring its case before a jury of The People if government wants to deprive any person of life, liberty, or property. Jurors can say no to government tyranny by refusing to convict." See: www.fija.org

The Jury Attempts to make sense out of the witnesses & evidence.

The judge is responsible for order in the court.

The lawyers seek payment.

The jury must make sense out of this circus as presented in court. They work to reach a verdict. Most jurists have sympathy for the court recorder. The recorder dutifully scribes truth or lie & all stretches in between... w/o break... w/o prejudice.

I have never seen nor heard:

    "The truth, the whole truth. Nothing but the truth, so help me God."

If I ever had witnessed even the first chapter or two, I never made it to the end of the truth. Suspect none have... Lest none have & lived to tell me about it.

How do I keep missing this stuff?

This was my conversation and I wasn't even in it!

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Police who lie should get the same punishment that they intended

for their victim.

Plus they should be fired without exception and denied future employment in law enforcement.

However if we enforced this mostly biblical principle, we would lose most of our ineffective government work force.

Amen.....

I Second The Motion

It is called "testilying". It is also called bearing false witness against thy neighbor. Repeated use of this technique could cause a person to be sentenced to an eternity in hell.

Zero police on the force. Even have a Mayor-for-the-Day free.

Police? If they show up, it is as a volunteer. Even robbers do volunteer work here.
