Frederick police officer resigns

By Washington Post editors

Frederick police Capt. Kevin Grubb confirmed Friday night that Megan Mattingly, a Frederick police officer being investigated for perjury allegations, resigned at noon Friday, the Frederick News-Post reports.

Mattingly's resignation comes a little more than five months after Chief Kim Dine reassigned her to administrative tasks on May 25 after her testimony in a drug case was called into question.

Although no criminal charges had been filed against Mattingly as of Friday, according to court documents, a perjury investigation was being pursued by police and prosecutors in Montgomery County. At least 19 Frederick County drug and prostitution cases have been dropped in the wake of allegations that Mattingly perjured herself on the witness stand May 20 during a preliminary hearing in Frederick County District Court, according to court records.

Not surprising. In the last ten years, the corruption in police officers has gotten out of control. After 9/11, they believed they had free reign to do whatever they wanted in the name of "security."

And now what do we have? Cops making $200k a year, retiring after 20 years with a pension at 90% of their final salary.

They then get another government job and bleed taxpayers again. This is an injustice perpetrated on the people by those who are supposed to stand for "justice."

Unrecognized by citizens that have been willingly snow jobbed by elected representatives (they get payed off with one govt program or another), is the fact that they are "100% captured clients" of the state.

However, the day will soon arrive when the unfunded pension liabilities created by the crony capitalists will come due and the system will collapse.
