    As far as I can tell, the Masonic CHP patch does exist, but I haven't found evidence it was ever uniform. It may have been created as a novelty or for a Masonic lodge made up of officers. I have ties to the CHP and will dig deeper.

    From the thread "POLICE STATE? How it came about in the US of A" OP:

    Quote After that, the Bonesmen fathers picked who was allowed to be in charge of the policemen in the neighborhood of Yale and eventually in the whole state, just for good measure. After a Harvard girl of very wealthy parents disappeared into the crypt in about 1932, never to be seen again alive, the fathers extended their coverage to Massachusetts. By the end of WWII, they bragged that they had 24 States sewn up against possible murder reports originating from their activities that included drug running and the stealing of girls to sell into sexual slavery. Because the stealing and selling of American children as sex slaves increased, they needed more men to do the kidnapping and transporting of them. It was also helpful to have a border with another country close by to skip over, if one side got onto you.
    ... what better ways than having some kind of "brotherhood" in charge of the hiring of key police forces...

    So, can one conclude from this disturbing series of posts that psychometric testing must be employed to identify the right sort to join the serve and protect gang. Therefore leaving the ration of good cops to bad cops a mere anamoly in the yet to be perfected selection procedure?

    In other words, how can the selection process for new police officers (apparently) so selectively weed out the guys (and girls) that would say "Woah! Wait a minute, this isn't right!"

    They even refer to themselves as "Loyal Knights". I wonder who or what they are loyal to.

    Freemasons in British police ‘obstacle’ to reform – ex-chief

    RT
    Published time: 2 Jan, 2018 10:28

    © Arno Burgi / Global Look Press

    Reform in policing is being blocked by Freemasons, the former chair of the Police Federation has said. Steve White claimed the fraternal organization may undermine attempts to recruit women and those from minority communities.

    White, who resigned from his post after three years in service, claimed there have been times when members of the police who were also Freemasons were considered an “obstacle” to reform.

    Freemasonry can be viewed as an international organization with an estimated 200,000 members worldwide. It is the oldest and largest non-political organization in the world, whose members call each other ‘brothers’ or ‘brethren.’ Sometimes confused or conflated with the Illuminati, Freemasons are a society who believe the universe has an architect, though Freemasonry is not considered a religion nor its Lodges places of worship. It has been criticized for its secrecy and accused of serving the interest of its members over the public.

    At a time of scandals and controversies, when the Federation was being threatened with takeover by the government, White became its head. He told the Guardian: “What people do in their private lives is a matter for them.
    “When it becomes an issue is when it affects their work. There have been occasions when colleagues of mine have suspected that Freemasons have been an obstacle to reform.
    “We need to make sure that people are making decisions for the right reasons and there is a need for future continuing cultural reform in the Fed, which should be reflective of the makeup of policing.”
    Masonic police officers have been accused of giving preferential treatment to their brethren over more talented, non-Mason officers. White said:
    “Some female representatives were concerned about Freemason influence in the Fed. The culture is something that can either discourage or encourage people from the ethnic minorities or women from being part of an organization.”
    One previous Metropolitan Police commissioner, the late Sir Kenneth Newman, opposed the presence of Masons in the police.

    White claimed there are a number of Freemasons members holding key positions in the Federation, but fell short of naming them.
    “It’s about trust and confidence. There are people who feel that being a Freemason and a police officer is not necessarily a good idea,” the former police chief said.

    “I find it odd that there are pockets of the organization where a significant number of representatives are Freemasons.”
    Mike Baker, spokesman for the United Grand Lodge, rejected all claims of interference, seeing no reason why its members should not be part of the force.
    “Why would there be a clash? It’s the same as saying there would be a clash between anyone in a membership organization and in a public service.

    “We are parallel organizations, we fit into these organizations and have high moral principles and values.”

    Many years ago, a drunk man crashed his car into a shoe shop in Carlisle, a local policeman did the masonic handshake and let him go. Freemasonic corruption is commonplace, globally prevalent, politically foremost including blackmail, nefarious cover-ups, in fact, worse than the mafia. Do you know a member, a puppet, a socially vulnerable target for these pariahs? They are like piranhas, mass in on an innocent subject, to compromise them forever. Utterly vile, totally evil, but they relish that power. Sacrificing themselves and their families to servitude to the ‘dark side’. Time to ‘out’ these social vultures.
