Feds Arrest Va Sherrif's Dept
Last week, The Feds broke an 8yr investigation wide open when the US Attorney announced 20 indictements against the Henry County Sherrif's Department to include the Sheriff himself plus 13 other officers or government workers. This indictment alleges that the Sheriff's Department removed guns and drugs from the Police Property room and either sold or used them on the street starting in 1997 until the present.
This breaking news hits home for Winchester Va residents and many families who have fallen victim to government corruption. The Winchester Police Dept has been the center of strickingly similar allegations but continues to dodge bullets of accountability and responsibilty by allowing the officers to resign or retire. Illegal activity such as rape, Breaking and entering, having sex with informants, lying under oath, falsifying police documents, missing transcripts and many other allegations have yet to stick, however, with the emergence of the recent FBI roundup in Henry County hopefully the City of Winchester will take responsiblity for its misconduct by holding the responsible agents of law accountable for their actions. Time will tell.
