Watch out for the Reno Police. They have a tendency to put exaggerated charges on people. Not saying this guy didn't commit a crime or even of a similar nature. They are corrupt and money hungry. They will add additional charges and even make up things and plant evidence to bump up the charges in attempt to extort money from relatives and loved ones of those who arrested. They get the Prosecutors office to collaborate with their lies and when you ask any questions about the charges then they say they can't talk about the case to make protect everyone involved and any evidence prior to court. Mind you the charges, the accused, and the crime are plastered all over the news media and in the paper. Mark my word you will see this police department on the national news sooner than later right along with Ferguson,Mo. Chicago, Philly, Baltimore, LA and many other cities. The motive in Reno is monetary. No state taxes, they are trying to generate money to make up the difference. Jails and prisons are big, big business and Reno is a downtrodden city. It's charges and fines are substantially higher than cities that charge state taxes. If this man is guilty he should serve his time and pay his dues to society. He should not receive additional charges by law enforcement just because they can get away with it and no one questions them! Also do NOT trust the public defenders office in Reno either, especially if you are a minority! They will sell you out then throw you under the bus!
