Apparently, it's OK to file a false statement with the New York State Police...
I asked the New York State Police to charge my accuser, who I had lived with for eight years, with making a false statement, and offered to show them the proof. They refused to even speak about it, and said "we don't do that".
Below the signature it states "False statements made Herein are punishable as a Class A misdemeanor pursuant to Section 210.45 of the Penal Law", and they "don't do that"? I was at the Trooper Barracks; you can be sure there's a video.
I then made a (futile) internal complaint to the New York State Police. As you can imagine, everything I said was, again, summarily dismissed.
A few weeks later, I was e-mailing a picture to myself; instead of going to my e-mail address, it went to his. Charged with harassment. A picture of me and my dog, that he took. Harassment?
I went to the trooper barracks to discuss the Complaint. The trooper told me none of the details. I represented myself in Court, and had the Complaint dismissed on procedural grounds. Since I did not have an attorney, I was not allowed to see the Complaint beforehand.
I was utterly astounded when I did receive a copy. He stated he had "unwanted communication" from me from January 2011 through November 2011.
It is beyond comprehension to me that the New York State Police take such a Complaint (from a friend) without ever being shown any proof.
I did not bother bringing these absolutely blatant lies to the attention of the New York State Police, since they had already told me they don't charge anyone with filing a false statement.
Last week the Department of Defense and the New York State Police viewed my website. The site presents all of the proof which the State Police would never look at, including 2 months of e-mail communication leading up to the time of the false statement, which is obviously "wanted".
Justice can still be served. Maybe they can make an exception for me, and charge someone with breaking a law they swore to uphold.
The statute of limitations does not run until December 28, 2013.
