Detained Dreamer's Lawyers Say Government Doctored Document to Justify False Gang Affiliation

The erased part says "I came in and the officer said", followed by (intact) "I have gang affiliation with gangs..." Pretty fucked up.

I'm guessing that doctoring a legal document is not legal.

The law enforcement officer who falsified that document is the only person in this case who belongs in prison. For a long, long time.

Ohhh somebody's got some explaining to do. That is not the smoothest evidence-tampering effort I've ever seen.

@6 Just out of curiosity, what is the smoothest evidence-tampering effort you've ever seen?

Someone is spending their Friday morning talking to lots of lawyers and bosses at ICE.

@7,

I had a friend in middle school who once received a report card with a D and three F's for his letter graded courses. He changed it to a D+ and three B+'s before presenting it to his rather clueless mother.

If this is "doctored" then these are the dumbest humans to walk the planet. I don't believe anyone is so dumb to try to pull this off. It looks more like, the kid erased his own thing but what he left behind was ambiguous - something I do all the time when I write so it seems like a very reasonable mistake that someone else could make. It then appears that ICE used the technical ambiguity of it to hold him - something that prosecutors do all the time anyhow.

@11, I don't believe anybody so stupid as to believe this is ambiguous. Just dishonest enough to claim it is. There are plenty of stupid enough immigration officials to attempt this. Shit, the chief executive is this stupid.

@11,

Spoken like somebody who has never seen the business end of our law enforcement apparatus, am I right?

@13 assume whatever you like :)

@12 yes, precisely my point - they're taking advantage of the "technical ambiguity" - but that doesn't amount to doctoring. They're interpreting in a way that that suits their desire the most, just like many here are so excited to call this a nefarious perversion of justice when it's actually just a banal perversion of justice.
