stay woke people
okay but there needs to be more context cause it’s even worse than it sounds (if you can believe it)
A group of up to a dozen police officers on a specialized narcotics team were found to have planted drugs and weapons on young black men for years. They were supervised at the time by Lt. Steve Parrish, current Dothan Police Chief, and Sgt. Andy Hughes, current Asst. Director of Homeland Security for the State of Alabama. All of the officers reportedly were members of a Neoconfederate organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center labels “racial extremists.” The group has advocated for blacks to return to Africa, published that the civil rights movement is really a Jewish conspiracy, and that blacks have lower IQ’s . Both Parrish and Hughes held leadership positions in the group and are pictured above holding a confederate battle flag at one of the club’s secret meetings.
The documents shared reveal that the internal affairs investigation was covered up to protect the aforementioned officers’ law enforcement careers and keep them from being criminally prosecuted.
the cover up had been going for nearly 20 years
Beginning in early 1996, the Dothan Police Department received complaints from black victims that drugs and weapons were being planted. Specifically young black men who had clean records were targeted. Police Chief, John White, allegedly instructed senior officers to ignore the complaints and they willingly complied.
in which we can’t’t tell the law enforcement professional from a wingnut in a white supremacist militia. The sad thing is this sort of confirmation of the worst ethical breaches and abject corruptibility (in Alabama) as it relates to race isn’tshocking enough to register on a national scale
DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW SKEWED CRIMINAL STATS ARE AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE WHEN THIS HAPPENS? That’s why I always ignore white people when they bring up crime as a reason why Black people should be harassed and even murdered by police. This doesn’t just happen in the South. This happens everywhere.
Even in liberal ass NYC, police have been caught planting evidence, falsifying reports, targeting Black people out of quota and more.
There’s no such thing as a good cop.
This is our police.
