Did a Baltimore police officer plant a bag of heroin capsules at an arrest scene, then charge an innocent man…, or was he just “recreating” an actual incident wherein he found drugs and documenting it with his body camera?

A video is going viral of body cam coverage from a drug arrest in January, which shows Baltimore police officer Richard Pinheiro placing a bag of white drug capsules in a pile of debris in an alleyway, underneath an old, discarded ladder, as two other officers accompanying him stand by.

Since the footage has now been released, the Baltimore Police Department has suspended Pinheiro, who has been on the force since 2011, and placed the other two officers on administrative leave, while the matter is being investigated.

As Paul Craig Roberts has noted police departments favor sociopathic hires nowadays. And one should avoid any interaction with police. True, most cops are good people but one can guess there are many more sociopaths in police work than in the general population and the militarization of police work sine 9-11 has made things really bad. As for the differences between a psychopath (using the terms as they are applied in society) who might be a calculating politician or leader in a religious body the sociopath is far less predictable in their interactions with people.
