As if we haven’t all noticed, politics, that is bitter partisan politics, has reached a crescendo while infesting aspects of our lives in unprecedented ways. We cannot get away from it, try thought we might. Just for one example, look at law enforcement.
Whether a public official is pursued for alleged crimes is dependent on his or her political support and whether there are power structures in place to encourage or quash the investigation. One need look no further than Hillary Clinton who in a normal universe would be under so many indictments it would be hard to figure out where to start.
For another example, considered DNC staffer Seth Rich who was murdered. Law enforcement claims it was a robbery, but it turns out he was in communication with WikiLeaks shortly before he was killed. Is there anyone who doubts the impact of politics in the this case? Who might not want the facts to come out?
We’re dealing with the murder of a public figure that occurred almost a year ago, and still no answers.
“Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich’s work at the DNC.”
Normally, calling something a conspiracy theory is a good way to kill a story, but perhaps not in this case since “[j]ust two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich’s death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right.”
Here’s the suspicious part: “Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.”
And this is where our problem of the politicization of law-enforcement comes in.
“Now, questions have been raised on why D.C. police, the lead agency on this murder investigation for the past ten months, have insisted this was a robbery gone bad when there appears to be no evidence to suggest that.
“Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective, is running a parallel investigation into Rich’s murder. He said he believes there is a cover-up and the police department has been told to back down from the investigation.”
Here’s the information, which if true, is the clincher:
“Wheeler also told us, ‘I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, “Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.” Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].'”
Why was Seth murdered? Why has law-enforcement sat on the case for almost a year? What is the connection with the DNC and with WikiLeaks? And if the story is true, why was the DC Police Department told to “stand down” on this case, and who told them to do that? It must have been someone with enough political power to make it stick.
A man has been murdered and his killer or killers are still at large. Can anyone doubt that the corrupting power of politics is involved in this case?
