Local Leaks has received a document that appears to come from the files of the office of the Commander of the North Carolina Highway Patrol. This document details a serious incident of abuse of power and conspiracy to violate the civil rights of at least two individuals. The document appears to be a photo copy of an authentic and confidental communication between an attorney and the Governor of North Carolina’s Constituent Affairs office.

Upon doing some research Local Leaks analysts found that the incident of misconduct described in this leaked document has been reported on by local jounalists:
One thing that Local Leaks investigators discovered in researching this disclosure is that just last year the Governor of North Carolina signed a new code of conduct for this police force in an attempt to curb rampant abuse and corruption. Apparently it didn’t do much good.
Given the past and recent history of this rather decrepit police force, the disclosed incident is not at all difficult to believe. Here’s hoping that this rather modest disclosure will encourage others in south eastern North Carolina with access to information on the North Carolina Highway Patrol or Governor to come forward and pass it to Local Leaks. Our analysis of this leak is that the document is genuine and relates an incident that in all likelyhood happened as described. It also proves that the Governor of North Carolina Beverly Perdue is aware of the problems in her police force, why doesn’t she act ? Perhaps it is because the Governor appears to owe some big favors to the North Carolina Highway Patrol:
A close analysis of this document reveals an interesting chain of custody. It is essentially a condidential report of an incident of abuse and misconduct transmitted and addressesd originally to the Governor of North Carolina, yet rather than take action and begin an investigation – she chose to forward it to the Commander of the Highway Patrol. Essentially she gave the cops (who she owes favors to) a heads up. It is the opinion of this editor that this whole thing stinks to high heaven, and again we encourage anyone especially employees of the Governor or Highway Patrol in North Carolina to disclose to us any evidence of wrongdoing they have access to.
