Cops Doing Home Invasions, Claiming Drug Raids - Robbery Ring Disguised as Drug Raids Nets Convictions for Former LA Cops The War on (some) Drugs. The general feeling of "we are above the law." And probably a code of silence thrown in for good measure.
William Ferguson, 35, a former Los Angeles policeman, and his 33-year-old brother, Joseph, a former Long Beach officer, were convicted of charges including conspiracy to deprive people of their rights under color of law and conspiracy to possess marijuana and cocaine.
. . .
Prosecutors said the ring conducted about 40 robberies from 1999 to 2001 in which members would steal cash and drugs, then sell them on the street.
As Uncle asks, are we winning the war on (some) drugs, or is it killing us?

Anyone want to claim it is an isolated incident?
