The state of the Rule of Law in the United States:
Several Durham police officers lied about non-existent 911 calls to try to convince residents to allow them to search their homes, a tactic several lawyers say is illegal. The officers targeted residences where individuals with outstanding warrants were thought to be living, and told them that dispatch had received a 911 call from that address, when no such call had been made.
No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht. This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. ((Hey, it’s only been 431 days since this came to light… — Jemison)) Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.
So on the one hand, you have law enforcement agents deceiving residents into unwittingly waiving their Fourth Amendment rights so the government can poke around. On the other, you have law enforcement agents strangely uninterested in talking to people who could provide relevant information to an investigation of alleged Federal misconduct.
Nothing to see here… move along…
