CHP helps pull the carpet out from under Schwarzenegger in the north state
CHP protected network of politically driven narcotics dealers
Pioneer Press by John Martinez 11/16/07
During the past several years Jon Lopey was the Captain in charge of the Yreka CHP office. During his tenure as CHP Yreka Area Commander many complaints were filed against an officer in the Happy Camp area. Each of the complainants have conveyed to me that it appears that Yreka Area Office and that of the Northern Division in Redding apparently engaged in a pattern of conduct by covering up for the serial misconduct of one of its own. Now, it appears the cover goes all the way to.
The cover up was simple and indeed malicious and harmful to the economic and social well being of private citizens. Refusal to protect citizens against malicious actions of their own officer by allowing repeated threats by third parties directed against complainants at the behest of sworn personnel, misusing federally funded tribal programs by denying and/or threatening to deny services to Native American citizen complainants and their families, allowing sensitive drug informant information to be given to area drug dealers and other forms of abuse of authority are the backbone of the conspiracy to harm private citizens. The derelict and malicious nature of the leadership within the CHP is evident through its unofficial policy of promoting its own that protect its own.
Since the alleged cover up, that includes top brass in the Northern Division and now at the state level, we have just discovered new information that open the CHP to civil action in the form of a class action suit. The Yreka Area Commander Captain Jon Lopey's promotion was no accident. Was Lopey's promotion in connection to a broad cover up executed by politically motivated CHP personnel from the Northern Division and Sacramento?
Based on numerous complaints gross negligence by the CHP Northern Division borders on systematic and ongoing public corruption. In protecting its own at the risk of private citizens one thing is clear - - the CHP during the past several years in Yreka and the Northern Division has empowered at least one of its officers to engage in political activities that aid the narcotics trade and target first amendment rights. Now Sacramento is facilitating the pattern of gross misconduct.
The same groups the CHP has empowered through negligence have trashed the governor over his policy to allow certain forms of recreational mining. The links are obvious and perhaps through civil legal action and criminal investigations handled only by the federal authorities will we discover the naked truth about the political machine we have come to know as the CHP.
