Once again special treatment is accorded to those who are supposed to "Serve and Protect."
The April 15 article, Veteran cop granted bond in U.S. drug-running case, reports that Lt. Ralph Mata is accused of running dope, smuggling arms and plotting to murder two drug dealers.
This “outstanding” police officer was afforded bond for his actions that never would have been offered to a non-law enforcement citizen.
The justification was given primarily because he had 22 years on the police force.
He should have been held to a higher level because he had so much experience as a cop and knew better.
