Some people at ORYR are still clueless about the legal status of posse members.
Brian Reilly, former Cold Case Posse member reports
Yes, Zullo is a volunteer. He is conbsidered “law enforcement support.” Posse members who show their badges inappropriately can be charged with impersonating a police officer. The investigation began at the direction of the Sheriff to look into the authenticity of the BC as it related to AZ criminal statutes. On March 1, 2012, the MCSO announced that PC existed that crimes had been committed. However, recently they are saying that the Sheriff never promised to file a criminal complaint, with a switch to focusing on taking the documentation to Congress. In the past 21 months, the entire Congress has not been formally approached by the MCSO CCP.
I was told that it is MCSO policy to have a real, sworn, paid MCSO Deputy travel with volunteer Posse members when they travel out of state. That is why a real Deputy went on the Hawaii trip with Zullo as I understand it.. As I understand it, no sworn MCSO Deputy travelled with Posse Volunteers, Zullo and Jeffreys on their recent trip to Missouri. I am told this is a violation of MCSO policy.
“For sometime now radio personality Carl Gallups and Mike Zullo have been hyping a meeting with VIPs and people of standing to look at the evidence that the Cold Case Posse developed regarding President Obama’s long form birth certificate. Is this the event that we’ve been waiting for? How will this event result in a criminal complaint being filed in Arizona with the proper authorities? We can only hope that there will be something more that comes out of this conference than a 20 minute speech by Lt. Commander Zullo. With probable cause determined by the MCSO CCP nearly 14 months ago, that felony crimes were committed regarding the Obama birth certificate and his Selective Service System registration form, why hasn’t a criminal complaint been filed by the MCSO CCP in Arizona? Hopefully, something meaningful will be accomplished by Zullo in Missouri at the end of this month. A meaningful conclusion to this investigation would be a welcome here in Arizona. Good luck Mike! Time for a criminal complaint to be filed.” [ ] – Brian Reilly
