Florida cops charged with official misconduct, perjury, and falsifying records, after surveillance footage contradicts their story

In one more example of how the Drug War corrupts character on the Blue side of the law, Florida cops were caught lying about the details of an arrest after footage surfaced contradicting their premeditated fabrications.  In a twist, however, they’ve actually been charged with a crime, and the innocent victim of their little escapade had his charges dropped.  Rare, indeed.

It can’t be pointed out often enough how artificial all these interactions between crooked cops and civilians are.  Without the Drug War, all the stings, no-knock raids, and undercover operations that police now engage in would never happen.  Police could deal with actual crime, rather than get sucked into the corrupting environment of black markets.
