Is Keith Herrera a liar or just a snitch trying to save his skin by telling the feds what they wanted to hear? Additionally the alleged ringleader, Jerome Finnegan has also cut a deal with the feds. Can Herrera and Finnegan be trusted to tell the truth? I don’t think so since their testimony is being bought by something far more valuable then gold, their freedom.
At stake are the very lives of their own brothers and teammates. Many of these officers may never live to see freedom again. Their families will be left in a shambles.
This 60 Minutes broadcast was more about a public relations publicity stunt between a Mayor and his new Superintendent of Police who is pulling strings at the Justice Department.
Herrera would never be able to talk to the media without total approval from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. As for me, I smell some real rats.
Watch the 13 minute orchestrated story.
