SSCC #490–IMPD

This one is in the count because of the ongoing history with the IMPD.  As I have said previously, an incident of blatant corruption usually indicates a deeper issue within a department and it appears we have another data point.

Detectives from the IMPD Special Investigations Unit arrested 40-year-old John Haggard of Indianapolis. He was arrested for burglary, criminal recklessness, criminal confinement, pointing a firearm, domestic battery and battery.

Details are light, but interestingly the IMPD is conducting the investigation.  I wonder if it will be like their DUI investigations.

State Sponsored Criminal #490: John Haggard

Because things like burglary and criminal recklessness are only crimes if you’re not anointed.  Being anointed means they give you a gun and are exempt right?

Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do it’s thing.

    I’m A Mooresville citizen ( where officer Haggard started his career) & know first hand officer Haggard’s history of using his badge as a shield. Not only does he have a history of domestic abuse, but the man has even threatened to sue his own family member for defamation of character concerning his own corruption. I’ve met a few police officers in my days, but this man has to have the biggest ego I’ve ever come across.

      Yup, another data point. I really wish these guys would get the ax instead of a pass to just go work someplace else.
