Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials created an elaborate sting operation to investigate whether a respected captain was secretly passing information to a suspected drug dealer, according to records reviewed by The Times.

Capt. Bernice Abram was believed to be giving information to Dion Grim, the suspected drug dealer.

In April 2011, sheriff's officials placed Abram on leave and for more than a year afterward her ties to Grim were investigated. Prosecutors recently declined to file charges against Abram, saying they couldn't prove the captain knew that Grim, a documented gang member, was involved in illegal activities.

The headline is inaccurate. The article doesn't state that the Sheriff's Department closed its probe; it states that the District Attorney's office declined to file charges. In fact, the media coverage on the topic states that now that the DA's office has declined to file, the departmental IA investigation will proceed, as well as the federal one.

The Times story, if accurate, and I was lead to believe to never believe what the print media says, well, at least 95% of it, puts her tit in the wringer to use a very old cliche. But what 'they' want you, 'they' will try and get you. Just read www.whenlawmenlie.com
