Lawrence Taylor, a dui trial attorney in California writes about a Wyoming state trooper a who was recently fired for making false reports to Wyoming’s dial a drunk reporting center. It appears that the cops had some type of tip that a vehicle on the roadway was carrying a large amount of cash. Mind you if the police had reliable sources they could have simply gone to the courts and tried to get a warrant to stop and search the vehicle. But they did not. Instead it appears that the officer simply made up a story, lied, about the vehicle being a drunk driver. In Wyoming and other states, including Texas, the governments have set up 1-800 numbers so any person can simply call and report somebody. In theory it might be good but the problem is these are annanomous calls so there is no way to check the credibility of the caller. I already see these lies from police officers in Lubbock dealing with drugs. The mentality is find or make up any reason to stop somebody and when you do then search to see if they have drugs. Finally I wonder why no charges have been filed against this officer. In Texas it is against the law to make a false report, isn’t this exactly what the officer did? Oh well, again the ends justify the means right.
