Evidence Tampering "Standard Procedure" says Hoover Police Chief

I think I might faint!

Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis has said that what Hoover Police did with the video of the beating of unconscious suspect Anthony Shannon Warren, is standard procedure.

What Hoover police did was to edit out the beating part, not report it to their superiors and only use the part of the tape that shows a Hoover Police officer (who was standing in the middle of the road during a high speed chase) being hit by the suspect who swerved to avoid a spike trip.

So, there you have it folks. Straight from the horses mouth. It is standard procedure for cops to tamper with evidence, not report police brutality to their superiors and only show the evidence that makes the police look good.

We already knew that....but hearing the police chief of the officers who tampered with the evidence in question actually admit such a thing is astounding.

But wait! That's not all...

The lawyer for the cops involved in the beating, Gayle Gear, said that police followed their training when they beat the unconscious suspect who had just been ejected from the van. No kidding. She said that.

So, police are taught to beat unconscious people and then tamper with the evidence.

Any questions?

That just boggles the mind. They admit that this wrongdoing is standard procedeure? Geeze they have emormous brass ones! The big question is will they get away with this yet again? The police are supposed to uphold law and order, yet they tend to get away with murder.

Ahhh the Hoover Police force...they are a rare breed. And Nick Derzis is the head ring leader of the whole dang bunch. As crooked as they come from my 39ish years experience of the fear of the goons. Counting the days til we are no longer residents ;)
