You Lie, You Die’: Cops Admit to Lying About Raid that Left Innocent Couple Murdered

2년 전

 Houston, TX — A botched drug  raid last month shook the nation as a couple was killed by police in  their own home and four officers shot. Now, after controversy and rumors  have swarmed the case, the Houston police department has admitted that the entire raid was based on the lies of one of their own. 

As TFTP reported last week, one of the officers involved in the raid  was suspended and the department refused to elaborate as to why. Now we  know. This criminal cop, lied on the sworn affidavit that led to a raid  in which two innocent people were murdered by Houston police officers. “That’s totally unacceptable. I’ve told my police department that if you lie, you die,”  Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said Friday. “When you lie on an affidavit, that’s not sloppy police work, that’s a crime.” As KHOU reports,  

The case agent obtained a search warrant to conduct the no-knock raid on Jan. 28 after he swore a confidential informant bought heroin at the home the night before. He said the informant told him he saw a 9mm handgun and a large amount of heroin in the house. Turns out, there never was a drug buy at the house or an informant who saw a large amount of heroin and weapons. When detectives with HPD’s Special Investigations Unit interviewed  the veteran case agent at the hospital, they asked for the name of his  informant. The officer wasn’t able to talk, but he wrote down the name of an  informant he said bought the heroin. Investigators then interviewed that  informant, who told them he wasn’t involved in a drug buy on Harding  Street. He also said the case agent sometimes paid him for work he  didn’t do, according to the affidavit. Investigators interviewed the case agent again and said he wrote down  a different informant’s name. That informant said he worked with the  case agent on a buy on Jan. 25 but it was at a different house in the  Third Ward, about five miles from Harding Street. Both informants named, along with all other informants the case agent  had worked with in the past, were shown photos of Tuttle and Nicholas  and their home. None recognized the couple or the home, according to  investigators.

As we reported last week, after this cop was suspended, professional  instigator and champion of the police state, Houston Police Officers’  Union President Joe Gamaldi doubled down on his claims that his hero  cops did nothing wrong and alleged that the suspension had something to  do with the officer’s injuries. “The department made the decision to relieve the officer of duty  while a thorough investigation continues,” he said. “Rumors will  undoubtedly continue until the case agent is able to be interviewed. 

 Unfortunately, his gunshot wound has resulted in him being incapacitated  while surgeries continue. Any assumptions or conclusions made prior to  the interview taking place are just assumptions.” 

Now, this tyrant who called for silencing and going after those who  push for police accountability is forced to eat his words. Naturally, he  is still reluctant. “If these allegations are true, it is certainly concerning and  disturbing,” said Gamaldi. “But I want the public to know this does not  reflect the hard work of the men and women of the Houston police  department.” Since this tragic incident unfolded last month, TFTP has been  reporting that this raid was likely based on false information and that  all of this would eventually be exposed. Sadly, we were right along with  all of their neighbors and now it appears that an innocent couple was  murdered by police—because they lied.

 “The truth will all come out,” neighbor Sarah  Sanchez, 42, said last week. “It’s not going to bring them back, but  it’s going to clear their names and bring them justice.” She was right. Now the question remains of whether or not this cop will be charged  with the murder of these two innocent people who did nothing wrong but  defend their home from armed invaders who kicked in their door and shot  their dog. Will the other officers, who unquestioningly took the word of  this criminal cop be held accountable for their role in this murder?  

Or, will this single cop be used as a scapegoat, be written off as a bad  apple, and the taxpayers foot the bill? From the start, this case reeked of corruption and cover ups. The  couple was smeared by police in the media, called dirt bags and those  who questioned the official story accused of waging a war on cops. Now  that the department has admitted this couple was killed over their lies,  will they issue an apology? Even if they do apologize, no amount of groveling and atoning will  ever bring back the lives of Dennis and Rhogena Tuttle. This is why the war on drugs needs to be brought to its knees, now.

your primary possession is your own body.
if your dont own it and dont have the right to do whatever you want to it, then in fact you have no rights at all
thats the main reason why the drug war is criminal and morally insane
imagine being thrown in a cage when you didnt harm anyone or steal anything its a complete farce
there are only three laws stealing destroying property and agressing against someone everything else is complete bullshit
i was telling this to mepatriot just earlier today
just cause someonedoesnt do drugs doesnt give them the right to make the govt force people what they can and cant do to their body if they are not hurting anyone
and they say we live in a free country what a bloody joke
even good people think the govt should ban drugs alldrugs should e legal there is no crime if there is not a victim
