“Fake Cops” Robbing Citizens At Gunpoint Turn Out To Be Real Cops Robbing Citizens

Very bad boys!

When Detroit citizens found themselves held up at gunpoint by officers who demanded their valuables, they thought they were impersonators. But they were wrong.

Some Detroit police officers are being accused of robbing citizens at gun point, in uniform. So what do you do if you are pulled over and don’t believe the officer has good intentions? Local police have issued a statement saying that you have permission not to stop if you don’t believe a real police officer is trying to pull you over. They say to call 911 and ask a dispatcher for assistance.

But what if the cops who arrive rob you?

And these are the same clowns who shoot your dog in a no knock raid. If I sat on a jury for someone who shot a cop in a no-knock raid ESPECIALLY a wrong address no-knock raid .... NOT GUILTY

My friend who was living in St. Louis, MO. at the time had her home broken into and robbed, as did several of her neighbors.
Turned out it was the police doing it.

If you don’t stop and they are real cops they will chase you, lay out tire spikes, do a pit maneuver to make you spin out, then drag you out of your car window, slam you to the pavement, and kneel on your back and chest. And if you resist, they will tase/pepper spray you. I advise you stop.

I recently read some stuff about NYC in the mid 1800s. The “cops” were part time, mostly at night, and barely paid.

So, in many instances, they conspired with burglars in hitting merchants’ businesses at night, then ransoming the goods back to the merchants. Then came the reforms and Teddy Roosevelt...

In this particular case in Detroit, the cops were “merely” retrieving the stolen property of a cop’s daughter, avoiding all that messy and cumbersome paper work.

With a 58-minute response time for a 9-11 police call, it could be a long drive. Just saying.

A friend of mine in the Gary-Calumet Region (around here known as “The Region”) told me a story how years ago, Gary PD responded to a burglar alarm at a shoe store. Someone had broken the store window. The cops rolled up and started helping themselves to “free” shoes.

Nothing new in these hell-holes.

likewise if someone being robbed by a uniformed person feels their life is threatened (guns were pulled) is deadly force justifiable - hell yeah - now the precedent has been set that people in uniforms are robbing us and threatening our lives

This happened to me in San Francisco on the street.

I have no tattoos, no gangsta gear, no swagger, no attitude.

I couldn’t believe it.

Were they in uniform? Yes.

Asked for my wallet, they emptied that cash and handed it back.

COPS LIKE THIS DO EXIST IN THE USA.

Maybe not *common*, but it’s not only Mexico, now.

Just the no-knock raid is enough for me. No amount of drug dealers caught or dope confiscated justifies the use of no-knock raids and the many innocent lives lost in wrong address no-knock raids IMO.

The ninja para-military wannabe police need to be rolled WAY WAY back. They are no longer the "serve and protect" corner cop of yester year. They are now more of a self serving revenue enhancing menace to the public and are certainly no ones friend outside of their ranks. My apologies to the last few remaining "good" cops ... you are a breed quickly being replaced by wannabe members of the standing army our forefathers so adamantly warned us against.

Detroit’s not the only place. At several locations around the country over the past few years, drivers have been pulled over and robbed of tens of thousands of dollars in cash under a general pretense of assumption that the drivers were doing something wrong with the cash. The problem with that excuse is, for example, so many public officials in various locales openly and notoriously doing drugs.

And the problem won’t be solved, until the Public Integrity Section in the Justice Department starts doing its job. But that won’t happen, until government receives enough demands from constituents to start prosecuting public corruption. Too many have been fooled by Hollywood’s glorifications of organized, illegal, white collar activities.

Well, they follow the democrate leadership. What else the IRS has become but a cop robbing you to pay EBT terroristas like Tsarnaev?

But the supremes still rule Obama legit for asking for help, Trayvon pixie dust in the neighborhood for your safety.
