Leland Police Department of North Carolina Complaint - Police officers of Leland are allowed to lie?

Review by sharig on 2007-06-06
LELAND, NORTH CAROLINA -- I filled out a complaint on one of Leland's police officers. I gave my statement in all truths in hope that all would come out of it was for the officer to know how his rudeness affected me. I wanted that officer to be aware of how ugly and rude his was. In return, an investigation was done. Two of the officers lied!! They had said that I was in the wrong and that I was talking so ugly that they were about to arrest me!!! How can they be allowed to lie on me?? I'm the one who needed their help! I will never call on help from the Leland police department of North Carolina.

No surprise there; cops stick together. "To serve" themselves "and protect" their own pockets.

Lids', I think this is your backyard?

What's on the video camera that is in every police vehicle? They have sound also. Just curious, on some TV show, they always show unruly people being arrested, and it's always caught on tape. I am not saying you were unruly.

So how did it affect you from them being so rude??
Why were you being detained? Traffic incident??

adzidek, quite a broad statement you have there. One that I do not agree with.

Posted by Skye on 2007-06-06:
I have to agree with emt. The first people called when someone is in trouble, are the police.

I love the police. I think they are very brave to serve and protect the public, whom are all basically strangers to the police.

I like to hear the otherside of the story: how did you come into contact with the police?
Posted by Skye on 2007-06-06:
Me too. Do tell.

Two sides to every story, and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

How do we know you're not the one who is lying?

Posted by Skye on 2007-06-06:
We need the "whole" story.

Thank you.

Let's have the facts, ma'am. Just the facts.

Leland is just outside Wilmington NC a very small town. They have a nice racetrack there. I use to have a few girl friends there many years ago.

But to the point, the police were OK when I lived there in fact most were friendly. Now a day it is true, the Police can lie and/or do just about anything they want to you and there isn’t much you can do about it. But it is also true that it is against the law in all states to lie to the police and you can and will be put in jail for it.

The police have way too much power in today’s world but then, what you going to do. There are still a lot more good cops then bad and even if they don’t treat people right, they still come when you call, most of the time.

It’s a hard one to say when is it wrong or right but when you are complaining about any group of people that work together they are very apt to lie to save one another.

Bottom line it’s all your word against there’s!

If your going to accuse cops of anything...you better have videotape and/or lots of witnesses!

As always I gotta agree with ejack on this one.

Lidman, the membership is growing a bit tired of your "I've been there done that" tall tales on every single review. It's obvious you pull 85% of this crap out of your rear. You don't have to be mr know-it-all done-it-all to be respected... just be yourself and it'll be okay.

Stew, One day I am going to come to OKC and find you. Then we can either have a beer and I will tell you all the things I have done in my life or we can do it another way, your choice.

I am not telling you anything I haven't done if you don't believe me then just STFU and mind your own business. Because you google 98% of everything you say and in truth you really don't say much at all but if people can't see through you its not my problem.

So Stewie, what will it be? PS. I believe I said the same thing as Ejack.

Lidman, Struck a nerve, did I? I have no desire to be bored with the fanciful fantasies of a braggart or participate in geriatric abuse. Yeah, let me guess, you're a 50th degree black belt in every known martial art, your hands are registered as lethal weapons with the FBI, and you have an inside connection into the CIA cyber-terrorism unit. Oh my, I'm shaking in my little white Reeboks. HaHAHA… Oh Liddy, you crack me up.

No little Stewie, but I am not a coward that runs and hides either and I also said we could drink a beer or another way. If you interpret that as a threat then maybe you have something to hide?

I am not any of the things you say but it does appear you are somewhat of a redneck if I read you right, and I do.

Stew, I stuck out the hand to shake and this is what I get back? Shame, shame!
Well you stay in your safe little world and hide behind your computer, make funnies all day at work and cost your company money then. Just remember, I offered the handshake and you tried to be a drama queen to save face. * tears *

Yes, there are indeed two sides (or more) to every story. Having been an officer myself, I would like to hear the whole story, and both sides. I, myself was occasionally accused of being rude, when in fact what I was being was efficient in the performance of my job. If I had a dime for every DUI I arrested who made the accusation I treated them like a criminal, I could have retired years ahead of time. I had a lawyer in court try to say that I was known to discriminate against Hispanics. Aside from the fact that our county is predominately Hispanic, the judge checked my arrest redcord, and found that I was much harder on caucasians than blacks or Hispanics. Lawyer had to eat crow. In some cases, the police are allowed to lie to a suspect, but it is a tactic not used too often, so it will not become too old. I never had the necessity to lie to anyone, but saw our detectives do it. But I sure aqs heck had people lie to me. I really enjoyed picking their lie apart, with the evidence, which does not lie.

Skye, I was not going to say anything, as I do not wish to embarrass you. But there is not a camera in every police car. Our county here in Arizona does not have cameras in the patrol cars, but I understand we do have the computer terminals now. They are supposed to get cameras in a year or so. When I was on the job, if you had a shotgun in your car, it waas most likely your own.
Posted by adzidek on 2007-06-07:
starlord, why were you harder on Caucasians? What ever happened to fair and equal treatment of everyone, regardless of race? This really drives home my point. I don't want to open up a can of worms on this one, but sufficed to say justice is definitely not blind. And I believe the OP was referring to lying to protect their actions, not lying to extract information.
Posted by Skye on 2007-06-07:
Starlord, that wouldn't embarrass me. I appreciate you clearing that up. I don't have any experience with the police, so I just figured in this day and age, every patrol car was equipped with a video camera.

Thanks for clearing that up!!

Liddy, did you have all those girlfriends at one time?
Posted by Skye on 2007-06-07:
Of course he did. That's his style. And I don't believe he lives in NC, I think it's Utah, and he has many wives.
Posted by D. on 2007-06-07:
Then he better have many checkbooks! LOL...How are ya Skye!

Why yes DB I did at one time and now you know why I had a heart attack.

Skye, I do live here and I gave you my number too. Why did you get married before we met?

To all of those who read my comment before:
You are surpose to trust the police, and I always have. I have over 12 who are officers...and I love them to death! Some worked for the same police sation as the one I delt with...Im just saying that they are here to protect us!!! They lied on me on a statment! That is against the law. They are the law....they cant be allowed to do that to someone. I dont trust my own police dept..and thats sad

Sharig, they are NOT the law they are hired to enforce the law. The biggest problem is most don't know what the law really is just like the rest of us. The blame is on their boss's and our so-called elected officials.
