Interviewer: Can a person who’s being investigated for a crime really trust
law enforcement to search for the truth?
Tipon: Look, this isn’t NCIS starring Mark Harmon. This isn’t CSI
Miami. That’s all television. When law enforcement is investigating
you and suspecting you of a crime, they’re out there to make a case
for the prosecution. They don’t suspect you of being innocent. They
suspect you of being guilty. And everything that they do, every step of
the way is to build a case for the people they work for: the United States
military. And what they’re trying to do is convict you and put you in jail.
So, is law enforcement who works for the military on your side? Are they
really looking out for your best interest? Are they looking out for the
truth? We like to hope so, but the reality of it is that they’re
out there to get promoted. They’re out there to make a case so that
you get convicted and you go to jail.
