New Jersey State Trooper Vinicius Vicente and Damon Crawford manufactured evidence and testimony in the Edison Municipal Court case of a 130-140 MPH high-speed chase on Route 287 which lasted for miles with Dwight Mitchell when this never happened. The fact is, none of this ever took place as evidenced by the patrol car video record on the night of the incident.

Although several appeals have been filed all the way up to the New Jersey Supreme Court, the Middlesex County Prosecutor and six Judges, have intentionally turned a blind eye to these illegal activities. Also, the Internal Affairs Office of the State Police have also turned a blind eye to the fabricated court testimony, manufactured evidence, and conspiracy caught on video disk evidence of the patrol vehicle.

Now, seven  (7) years later, with a Federal Civil Rights case in progress, both of these State Troopers are still free, working, and patrolling the highways of New Jersey. There has been no reprimand or reprisal when none of the illegal facts have been disputed. Of course the video evidence cannot be disputed, so why has nothing been done. Who is to say they are not doing to other drivers, what they have done to me.

As of October 2017, the New Jersey Attorney General's office is desperately trying to get the Federal Case dismissed and currently we waiting to hear if the Federal Judge will allow the case to proceed forward to trial.

I wrote the following letter to the New Jersey Attorney General, the US Attorney General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police;

Attorney General of New Jersey
Richard J. Hughes Justice Complex
P.O. Box 080

Dear Mr. Attorney General:

Enclosed please find the Municipal Court Transcript dated 9/14/2010, Patrol Vehicle Video dated 6/6/10, Defendants Appellate Division Brief 8/20/11 and Appellate Division Opinion dates 2/27/12. I requested the transcripts from my appearance before the Appellate Division panel, but was advised this was not available, so I am also enclosing my written Oral Argument that was presented to Appellate Division Court on 12/21/11.

On June 6, 2010 I was issued two summonses by Trooper Vinicius Vicente, one, SP4808341 for driving 130 mph in a 65 mph zone and the second, SP4808342 for Reckless Driving.

In the Appellate Division Opinion, the Honorable Judges affirmed the rejection of Trooper Vicente testimony by the Superior Court and dismissed the charge of Reckless Driving.

As evidenced by the patrol vehicle video record, Trooper Vincente’s manufactured evidence testimony of an alleged high speed chase of 130-140 mph which lasted for several miles never took place. There is an admission on the video record by Trooper Crawford that the alleged high speed chase never took place, yet Trooper Crawford expressed no opposition to the falsification of summonses when it is discussed in the patrol vehicle and instructed Trooper Vicente to issue additional tickets for offenses that were never committed. In fact, the entire speeding incident, which lasted only 6 seconds as evidence by the video record, was done after the Trooper was behind the defendant, because the defendant reasonable believed the Trooper was on his way to an emergency, and was getting out of the passing lane as quickly as possible.

Simply put, the two State Trooper are liars and if this blatant lying under oath of material fact was done by an ordinary citizen he would be indicted and prosecuted for perjury, therefore Trooper Vincente and Crawford should also be prosecuted for perjury.

Your office must formally investigate and address the abuse of power, malicious prosecution, and falsification of records, misconduct, civil rights violations and perjury by Trooper Vicente, Badge 7264 and misconduct of Trooper Crawford, Badge 6941 of the New Jersey State Police.
