Accessory after the fact, Police, Judges, District Attorney, Prosecutor, Mayor, Unions and Governors help criminals
Ever notice how some people get long prison terms for minor crimes while some killers get no prison time at all? How can two police officers who were caught on video and audio beating to death an unarmed, disabled person who was no threat to them? Fact is most of the time killer cops never spend one day in jail.
Definition of Accessory After The Fact?
Every person who, after a felony has been committed, harbors, conceals or aids a principal in such felony, with the intent that said principal may avoid or escape from arrest, trial, conviction or punishment, having knowledge that said principal has committed such felony or has been charged with such felony or convicted thereof, is an accessory after the fact to such felony.
The California Penal Code defines accessory after the fact as any person who helps a principal felon avoid, or escape the following set of four actions:
- Conviction, or
- punishment after the felony has been committed.
For example, if your friend has committed a burglary and you sheltered him in your garage to help him avoid the police, you would be charged with being an accessory after the fact.
Kelly Thomas is a perfect example of the problem
“I’m just horrified. They got away with murdering my son,” Cathy Thomas, the victim’s mother, told reporters after the verdict was read.
The victim’s father, Ron Thomas, said that everyone now needs to be afraid.
“This is carte blanche to police officers to do whatever they want,” he told reporters.

With over 900 people killed by police in 2015 as of today and 1108 Killed in 2014
how many of these officers are getting away with murder? Ask the families, view the audio and video evidence of police killing unarmed, innocent people. Officers who commonly abuse the “I feared for my life” excuse. Police departments all over America who investigate themselves and always seem to find their killer cops “Justified”. Fact is everyone else who commits similar crimes is polygraphed, jailed, not allowed time to make up a story, not given administration leave pay, no tax payer paid legal representation and no huge tax payer pockets for settlements.
Tax payers are murdered and then tax payers are forced to pay.
No accountability, personal liability, transparency and too many benefits and rewards for committing an obvious wrong. Murder
It’s all about protecting that officer, getting him back out on the streets, delays and destroying the character of the victim to rationalize the crime or killing.
Think what happened to Kelly Thomas is only one incident? Think again and see just a small percentage of other cases where cops walked free
