A lesson for the ACPO from America

When politicians in
America of whatever rank are caught with their
fingers in the till, the FBI upholds the constitution and the laws of the land.

Rep. John
Doolittle, whose house was searched by the FBI in an influence-peddling
investigation, said Thursday he will step down temporarily from the House
Appropriations Committee. 

The announcement
by the nine-term California Republican came one day after the disclosure that
agents had raided his home in
Oakton, Virginia. In the search last Friday, the FBI had a
warrant for information connected with a fundraising business run by
Doolittle's wife, Julie, that had done work for convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff. 

Doolittle's ties
to Abramoff have come under scrutiny in the corruption investigation that has
sent one former Republican congressman, Bob Ney of
Ohio, to prison on a guilty plea to charges of
conspiracy and making false statements, and produced convictions against two
senior Bush administration officials and several congressional aides. (source).


We say to the
ACPO: Learn the lesson from the Americans, If you know that our politicians are
engaging in corrupt acts then go get them. Start being the Policemen that you
are paid to be, instead of the political flunkies that you appear to be.
