The time is right. The West Virginia State Police are under the microscope in Calhoun AND Roane Counties. The common citizens of these counties are discussing the problems. Not just radicals and malcontents, but ANYONE who follows the news. They are being talked about in coffee shops, the library, the post office, on the street.
Investigations are being conducted, lie detector tests are being done. And so, now is the best time for ANYONE with a complaint or problem to CONTACT the proper authorities. At this time they WILL listen, perhaps more so than at any other time.
It is time to stop being scared. It is time to stop being apathetic. It is time to stop feeling like nothing can be done. It is time for WV citizens to EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS! Take back your peace of mind AND your counties. Let the powers that be know you are sick and tired of being intimidated and threatened by State Troopers.
Imagine what could possibly be accomplished if the Governors office and the Professional Standards Section of the State Police office in Charleston were FLOODED with complaints…
There is no point in contacting your local State Police Barracks, as the individuals who work there could be part of the problem and your complaints may go unheard. Go over their heads!
Documentation is the key. One person making a complaint cannot expect to see immediate results, but if enough complaints of State Police misconduct are recieved and documented there is far greater probability that something positive will be accomplished. There is power in numbers.
We are already seeing some juries who are not accepting everything the State Police say as gospel. This is a VERY GOOD SIGN! It means people are thinking. Now it is time to take things to the next level.
Contact the Professional Standards Division AND the Governors office TODAY. Encourage your friends and acquaintances to do the same. Pass on this information to as many people as you can.
Contact the State Police Professional Standards Section at 304.746.2110, or by mail at: West. Virginia State Police Professional Standards Section, 725 Jefferson Road, S. Charleston,WV, 25309-1698.
