Undercover Cops Attack Innocent Woman, Shoot Good Samaritan Who Tried to Save Her

It’s hard enough to tell if a cop is going to rob, injure or kill you these days when they are in uniform, but when they’re dressed in hoodies and approaching people in the dead of night it becomes impossible. On July 30, local media reported that a man was shot by an undercover deputy in suburban Lake Worth and critically injured, nearly dying at the hospital.

The incident happened over an alleged drug deal that quickly turned to chaos before John Valderrama was shot in the leg in “self-defense,” according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s report. However, two sources inside the sheriff’s office have provided information to Jose Lambiet that suggests the three unarmed civilians were victims of poor police logic and excessive force. It seems that Valderrama was shot for trying to help someone whom he thought was being attacked.

Below is the original news report, in which it was immediately assumed that these cops were attacked for doing their jobs. However, as you will read below, that is not the case.

None of the three—John Valderrama, Richard Roll and Regina Betts—have been charged with a crime, and it is unlikely this will happen, according to the sources. The undercover deputies were identified as John Bango and Tom Kabis, who have a history of screwing up. In 2007, they arrested the wrong guy for alleged drug dealing, who wrongfully served eight months before being released.

Playing dress up and killing people. Maybe that's why citizens aren't "allowed" to carry guns? If a citizen saw a couple of punks wearing hoodies and beating people up, it would be perfectly reasonably to put a couple of rounds in their head. Ooops!! They're cops?! Sometimes "dress up" doesn't work out so well....
They put the wrong guy in jail for eight months??? No perjury there, huh? No falsification of evidence, either, right? No States Attorney looked at the "evidence" and said "WTF? This doesn't add up?
AND, these lying thugs with a badge KEPT THEIR JOB??
How many innocent people does a cop get to kill or imprison before they say "you aren't the right material?"
Then again, maybe that is what they re looking for.....
Two sets of laws.
You or I falsely accuse someone of a crime and SWEAR to the facts under oath (and they go to jail!), then are found to have lied, well, we better have a really good lawyer.
All the police need is a good cup of coffee to prepare for the next shift.
Two sets of laws. Right in your face. SLAPPING you across the face.
Keep cheering.
