SSCC #62-#73–Orlando Police

Prosecutors have dropped attempted murder charges against a man who was shot in November by Orlando police officers who claimed he tried to ram them with his van.

The decision came after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement obtained surveillance video that appears to show an Orlando police pickup truck pushing the van into other officers’ vehicles.

But wait, there’s more… (Emphasis mine)

The FDLE forwarded its findings to the Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s Office, which dropped charges of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and other serious felonies that could have led to life sentences. Prosecutors have decided to take no action against the officers.

So let me get this straight.  Cop A rams the citizen’s car into Cop B who then shoots claiming the citizen tried to run him over.  Seriously you can’t make crap like this up.  To then put the icing on the cake, they attempt to charge the man with attempted murder, which would have stuck had it not been for the surveillance tape.  Since the officers got busted lying, it doesn’t matter because it’s just business as usual.

Seriously no charges, none!?  Evidently anything and everything goes if you’re an Orlando police officer even if you get caught.  If you want some side income, become an Orlando PD officer and run a brothel.  If they don’t care about attempted murder, perjury, and unlawful use of force; why would they care about an officer running a brothel?

Every officer associated with this incident is guilty, due to the following, that ticker is rolling fast.

OPD is conducting an internal investigation of an undisclosed number of the dozen officers involved in the takedown in the Target parking lot on East Colonial Drive on the Sunday before Thanksgiving 2010.

State Sponsored Criminal Count: 73

Because when you feel the need to kill something, just stage the incident like you needed to use lethal force, it’s cool!
