Why American cop and whistleblower Mark Dougan turned to Russia for sanctuary
Editor’s Note: This new documentary from RT features Palm Beach Sheriff Deputy Mark Dougan, a whistleblower-turned-political emigre. It illustrates the corruption of a local law enforcement agency and the very real dangers of running a blog critical of one’s publicly-elected employer. If the United States had a truly free press Dougan’s story wouldn’t be suppressed. Note that RT is, of course, a “Kremlin-funded” news outlet.
While flying close to a small airstrip just over the US border with Canada, the passenger aboard a small Cessna seemed to have a heart attack. After an emergency landing, he miraculously recovered, jumped out of the plane, threw some money at the pilot and ran away. A few days later, he resurfaced in Russia. It may sound like a spy novel plot, but it’s just one episode in the true story of real-life American cop-turned-whistleblower, Mark Dougan. After exposing endemic corruption in the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, he had to fled the United States and found refuge in Russia.
After leaving the US Marine Corp in, Dougan wanted something more adventurous than an office job and became a police officer. After six years, he left the PBSO, appalled by the blatant criminal activity that he saw within the force. He later started a blog, giving honest cops a forum where they could anonymously discuss and expose illegal conduct by senior law enforcers, who predictably, hated it! After being hounded, harassed, and placed under surveillance for six years, The FBI raided John’s home and seized all his digital equipment; they even gave him his own code name; Bad Wolf.
That was when the whistleblower realised he had to flee and escaped to Russia, leaving behind his wife and young children. RTD’s new and exclusive film, Breaking Bad Wolf, tells his incredible story.
A body found late Tuesday night in the Chattahoochee River is that of missing CDC scientist, Timothy Cunningham, who allegedly revealed that the flu vaccine was causing the flu outbreak.
Timothy Cunningham went missing more than a month ago. The CDC scientist disappeared on Feb. 12 after leaving work at his Chamblee office early in the day following complaints that he did not feel well. Much suspicion surrounds the disappearance as Cunningham seemingly vanished into thin air with his keys, phone, car, and dog left behind at his residence.
On Feb. 27, Atlanta Police said on the day he went missing, Cunningham had a meeting to discuss a potential promotion.
“That meeting was to explain a promotion that he did not receive to a branch manager. He had been informed the previous Monday that he was not getting the promotion, but the explanation occurred on the morning of the twelfth,” authorities said in the February press conference.
The CDC denies Cunningham was eligible for a promotion.
On Tuesday night, fishermen contacted authorities after discovering a decomposing body in the Chattahoochee River near Donald L. Hollowell, approximately 400 yards upstream from the bridge. The body has been identified as 35-year-old Timothy Cunningham. Rescuers were unable to determine how long the body had been in the river.
