Something from our neighbor to the east, North Carolina
Police union official in North Carolina wants feds to launch a criminal investigation of the people in his town who criticize police officers.
Evil forces are conspiring against the fine police officers of Fayetteville, North Carolina. In that community, a three-time winner of the All-America City Award (and what greater endorsement is there?), “police officers are under attack by drug dealers, lawyers representing drug dealers and by the City of Fayetteville.” Well, at least that’s according to John C. Midgette, Executive Director of the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association, and a man who brings a strong dose of crazy to his organization’s campaign against the establishment of a citizen review board — and of any criticism at all of the thin blue line.
And he’s probably still a few years early on calling for federal investigations of people who merely voice their dissatisfaction with law enforcement.
I should point out that this kind of crazy may be contagious. Ed Krayewski found a similar case in Philadelphia.
