I can not believe that a police officer can blatantly lie and get away with it so easily. It is always the circumstances surrounding an incident like the teaser of a young man by a police officer, that gets a little hazy-- because of all the excitement (seemingly caused by the police officer), but the facts stand out for themselves. It seems to me that when all is said and done, it was still proved by more than one witness that the officer in question did teaser the man and then lies about it on the stand. Even the officer’s superior seems to have suggested that she cover-up her misuse of a teaser and her unprofessional behavior. If it was an ordinary citizen they would be faced with perjury without the benefit of a statement contradicting the officer’s guilt by the presiding judge. Any one committing perjury is making a mockery of our criminal system and especially when it is a police officer. When a person commits the offence of perjury, they should have their guilt left-up to a jury or a presiding judge in court especially if the accused is a police officer. Their case should not be decided ahead of time by the statement of a judge in a newspaper article. When will the citizens of Portland see equal justice for all?
