– Very difficult question, why I’m here. People do not understand, but we in the United States, too many problems with corruption. Seven years ago, when I worked as a police officer, I was faced with a violation of human rights. I did not want to be part of it. When I started complaining, I was forced to leave. I opened the Web site where other police officers began to share what they had experienced corruption, as well as their thoughts on this issue – said Dugan.

– A lot of situations that I have encountered. I am firmly convinced that the murder, crimes against children, theft, rape – this is a very serious crime – told the former police officer. – Open a lot of terrible cases. So, what ordinary citizens do not know. Our news did not report such cases, it turns out, cover the crime.
– Recently we got a recording in which a detective with the FBI investigator discussed that I would have to removed, imprison or eliminate other way. They want to harm me, in general. That was 8 months ago. They came to my home and took all my computers. We were trying to show the truth, but my country’s policy is that it is unprofitable, – said John Mark Dugan.
