Do any of you remember Officer Travis Ludwig? He was the one who was selling Cocaine out of his patrol car while on duty, his punishment was to resign, he moved to New Mexico, I was told by a friend who lives in N.M and works for the agency who receives background checks for state and municipal employees,that he was applying for the police department there the same week he arrived there, haven't asked if he got a job, but most likely did, I probably shouldn't find out because then I would feel bound to let the police department there know what they hired, and basically it isn't any of my affair, sure is a shame he got to just walk away though, no justice for dirty cops.

I'm not sure how short the investigation was cut, but I know a lot of charges were thrown out on all of them. This is so bad when the people who are given the power to enforce our laws are not held to the same standard and judgements, if anything they should be punished more severly than regular citizens just because so much trust is given to them as police officers, it is sickening and no doubt makes it much easier for anyone to commit crimes because how can you have respect for the law when they are as bad if not worse than the criminals? Society is truly breaking down.....

The investigation was cut short far too early; there was still a lot of house cleaning to be done. TPD leadership is unrepentant, like an alcoholic denying a drinking problem. There wont be any real reform until all the chiefs are replaced with those that don't put high drug arrest numbers above all else.

Justice? No, there is none, if any citizen had done what these cops did, they would never see the light of day again, I don't think judges always have concerns about the age and health of suspects, do they? Maybe I am wrong, but I can't remember a single case where the judge apologized to the criminal because he had to sentence him for drug,bribery, corruption (minus the firearms charge he didn't charge Wells with). I'm sorry, I don't even know why we have judges, they don't do their jobs,there is no equal justice practices or enforced any more, so why do the taxpayers pay them? Why do we as a society of laws keep pretending this country has equal justice for all? It's a freaking sick joke and an outright lie.

Why should anybody be surprised at Prohibition's innate ability to corrupt entire government agencies? It's more than fairly evident, and especially to those of us whose survival doesn't depend on the continuation of Prohibition, that even if we could afford to put Narcs on every single corner, it is extremely likely that at least half of them would very soon become dealers themselves. So it begs the question: Why on God's green earth do we continue as a nation to foolishly shoot ourselves in both feet? An appeal to all Prohibitionists: Even if you cannot stand the thought of people using drugs, there is absolutely nothing you, or any government, can do to stop them. We have spent 40 years and over a trillion dollars on this dangerous farce. Practically everybody is now aware that Prohibition will not suddenly and miraculously start showing different results. So why do you wish to continue with a policy that has proven itself to be a poison in the veins of our once so proud & free nation? Do you actually think you may have something to lose If we were to start basing drug policy on science & logic instead of ignorance, hate and lies? Maybe you're a police officer, a prison guard or a local politician. Possibly you're scared of losing employment, overtime-pay, the many kick-backs and those regular fat bribes. But what good will any of that do you once our society has followed Mexico over the dystopian abyss of dismembered bodies, vats of acid and marauding thugs carrying gold-plated AK-47s with leopard-skinned gunstocks? Kindly allow us to forgo the next level of your sycophantic prohibition-engendered mayhem. Prohibition Prevents Regulation : Legalize, Regulate and Tax!

IM very happy they got caught. Just because they are police doesn't give them the right to break the law. Cops get away with to much. No wonder people find it hard to trust the system, when the system is corrupt.
