My question involves police conduct in the State of: It does happen to people who have worked in either law enforcement or other facets of government who either pissed someone off, irritated an agency, or blew the whistle on someone.....it is not necessarily at the federal level....it's been happening to me at the state level for decades and I, too, am in the west, though it happens all over the country not just in the West.....they blacklist you from getting decent jobs(or any jobs at that), discredit you, tell others you are insane and that you lie, tell people to stay away from you so you cannot have a personal life and pursue your personal and professional goals. It happens all the time....and it has nothing to do with public safety, that is the lie they pull to justify it, it has to do with getting "even". There really is no way to take legal action because those in on it are way too afraid to open their mouths that if they "come clean" the powerful ones will do the same thing to them. It is a very sad, unfulfilling way to live life, especially when you were one of them and they chose the dark side over you. They state the blue wall protects those who are working for them......not when you are a female and not sworn.
