So if an organization knowingly does something illegal, dealing with the obstruction of justice, which causes them to financially prosper…. they can be found guilty under the RICO Act.

Like say, police ignoring a mandate of the Attorney General, in order to ensnare more ‘criminals’. Then using those numbers, knowing they were created illegally, to file for grants to fund the police themselves. Then repeating the process, thus effectively creating an illegal conspiracy.

NO! Not all cops are bad. But having met some dishonest ones now, my faith is shaken!

One thought on “What a Racket!

  1. Those HONEST cops that do nothing about the bad apples in their profession, they are no better than the bad apples. They are apathetic to the wrongdoing making them as culpable for the damage their peers cause, no matter if they agree with it or not.

    Do not let them off so easy, there isn’t a single police officer that is your friend, they are not there to find the truth, they are there to close cases by any means necessary.
