The Sandy Post finally came out with an on-line article about Bergin's arrest: ( http://www.sandypost.com/news/story.php?story_id=122669848205315100).
The lead states:
"An investigation by the Gresham Police Department has alleged that a Sandy police officer obtained revoked, cancelled or suspended driver's licenses and gave them to a friend who may have used them so that minors could enter places where alcoholic beverages are sold."
But later in the story it quotes Deputy District Attorney Mike Regan as saying:
"Bergin is alleged to have kept driver's licenses in his coffee table drawer and then given two of them to a friend of his to use to get into under-age bars."
Did you catch that? Under-age bars?
I'm a bit confused. So which is it? Were these licenses used (or going to be used) by minors to get into alcohol-serving bars, or were they used (or going to be used) by older people to get into under-age establishments?
Could it be that the pool of sweet young girls for the local cops and other pedophiles to prey upon is too limited up here on the mountain? It seems they're going downtown to mine the underage clubs now.
Since the second statement was a direct quote from the Deputy DA, and the first was - apparently - a (mis?) interpretation of the details by the author of the story, I tend to lend more credibility to the DA's direct quote.
If that's true, which of Billy Bergin's adult friends would want to go to an underage establishment, and why? It's not really too hard to guess, since Bergin's LATEST investigation came from info found out in the investigation of Deputy Claggett's abuse and stalking of underage girls. According to this latest article:
"The investigation into Bergin's activities began when one of the witnesses in the investigation of former Clackamas County Sheriff's Deputy Brandon Claggett gave information that accused Bergin of illegal actions."
Those witnesses being, of course, the underage girls that Claggett stalked and abused. Obviously, Claggett and Bergin, (and perhaps how many others?) were in on this shit together.
But no, the cops and their cronies at the DA's office are unable (more like unwilling) to connect any dots - at least publicly. "We're talking about one discreet event," said Deputy District Attorney Mike Regan.
WTF?? Yet again, we get little more than a press release from the incurious stenographers at the Post. Pay attention, please, you allegedly professional newspeople! We want to know what's really going on, not just what they want us to hear.
And how come the comments section is not allowed on this story on the Post site??
Freedom of speech, my ass.
