Fire Officers For Planting Drugs on Innocent Citizens

Target: Kevin Davis, Baltimore Police Commissioner

Goal: Fire the officers who allegedly planted drugs on innocent citizens and reform the department to eliminate deceptive police officers.

Officers at the Baltimore Police Department are accused of attempting to frame innocent citizens for drug-related crimes after two police body-camera videos have surfaced appearing to show officers planting drugs on citizens. This kind of crookedness is disrespectful and dangerous to the citizens these officers are sworn to protect. Demand that these officers are fired and the department is overhauled to eliminate dishonest police officers.

One video, which was released recently by Maryland’s Office of the Public Defender, shows the scene of an arrest where an officer appears to place a bag of white capsules in an alley and walking away before heading back into the alley to falsely discover the drugs.

The video of the officer planting the drugs was captured because the body cameras maintain recordings from the 30 seconds before the cameras are switched on. Because of the fake evidence, a man was arrested on charges of felony possession with an intent to distribute drugs.

The newest video released appears to show an officer planting marijuana and heroin inside a citizen’s car after police stopped her and claimed she smelled like marijuana. These and dozens of other cases relying on the testimonies of the police officers involved have been dropped due to lack of credibility.

These innocent citizens could have been locked away and fined because of the sickening and illegal lying these officers committed. Demand that the officers are fired and that this already troubled police station undergo a complete overhaul to wipe out unfit officers.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Davis,

Your dangerous and delinquent police department has been a problem for years, but now these problems are being caught on camera and cannot be ignored any longer. Racial profiling is already a huge issue across the country, yet your officers have managed to go even lower by planting drugs on innocent citizens.

There is absolutely no justification for the behavior of these officers, which fuels the already massive distrust of police not just in your city of Baltimore, but across the nation. An example must be made of these liars and others like them must be expelled from the department. I demand you fire these officers for their alleged illegal behavior and reform the department so only honest officers remain.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I don’t understand why this petition only asks the officer be fired. This man must also be charged with obstruction of an investigation and planting evidence. If a civilian did this charges would be laid against them. As an officer of the law this should be considered even a more serious crime.

  3. this was not done by anyone, except the police officers of Baltimore. They forget to turn off their body camera’s when they planted the drugs! We all have seen it. Baltimore the body camera’s always need to be turned. The company who makes them, in Sept. will have solved the problem you all seem to have – the camera’s can automatically turned! no room for human error anymore, this should solve your problem! Keep you from charging innocent people!

  4. THIS IS HORRIFIC CRIMINAL ACTIVITY BY THE POLICE THAT ARE THERE TO STOP CRIME & THEY ARE THE ONES THAT ARE DOING THE CRIMES, TRYING TO PUT INNOCENT PEOPLE IN PRISON WHEN THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG, FINDING THEM SELVES BEING CHARGED WITH DRUG POSESSION WHEN THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAS HAPPENED & CANT DEFEND THEM SELVES BECAUSE THE POLICE HAVE FRAMED THEM, THESE POLICE HAVE TO BE FIRED, CHARGED & PUT IN PRISON, THE POLICE ARE THE CRIMINALS, THIS HAS GOT TO BE STOPPED, I AM SO ANGRY & APPAULED THAT THIS CAN HAPPEN BY CORRUPT POLICE THE POLICE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE GOOD GUYS.

    • Carole – You expressed it well and I agree with you, and with the other commenters (so far).
      These cops are not just like a few mischievous little boys playing pranks on people. These are dangerous criminals who have committed very serious crimes.
      They have completely betrayed the public trust. They are framing innocent people and ruining their lives and their family’s lives – ALL the while making themselves look as if they are the good guys – the heroes, protecting people from these horrible criminals. It’s disgusting beyond words.
      And they are not the only ones doing this. They are just the ones that got caught.

  5. Signs of a society in disrepair, as USA is not the only country on this planet.

    There are plenty of dishonest police officers who must be eliminated from the service.
