I am very concerned with the Saturday, December 10, 2016 Triplicate article that reported CHP officer not guilty. Apparently, the evidence locker was busted into and robbed several times. There was some sort of substance on the floor that had a woman’s size 8 footprint impression and the officer in question wears an 11 shoe. There was something about his wife being a suspect? I think the attorney was going for the infamous, “if it does not fit, you must acquit” defense.
Many of the TV crime shows show surveillance cameras being very useful in identifying who broke into and who stole items. I understand they are not that expensive. Probably cheaper than the numerous investigations from the numerous break-ins. I don’t know who broke in. I do know that the incompetent officer in charge needs to be replaced.
Also, how often are the CHP, Sheriffs and police drug tested? That needs to be increased.
I am very tired of watching tax dollars being swindled by the corrupt in the name of justice.
While on the subject of swindling tax dollars, does any body know who is accountable for how bond money is spent? Is there a requirement that a record must be kept and what are those requirements?
