Here's your Infocult headline for the day, courtesy of Yahoo News:
Aide to California state attorney accused of running an occult police force claiming to be 3,000 years old
In contrast the LA Times has a merely disturbing headline:
Aide to Kamala Harris, 2 others accused of running rogue police force
What kind of pulp Gothic criminal story is this?
Brandon Kiel, deputy director of community affairs at the California Department of Justice, and two others — David Henry and Tonette Hayes — reportedly face charges for their roles in the Masonic Fraternal Police Department...
"Following an investigation, officials said, sheriff’s investigators searched two sites in Santa Clarita and found badges, weapons, uniforms and law enforcement paraphernalia."
The LA Times adds a helpful Templar connection.
The MFPD had an informative website, including menu options for a "Clandestine List." That's where this post's image originates. They explain further:
The Masonic Fraternal Organization is the oldest and most respected organization in the “World.” Grand Masters around the various states are facing serious safety concerns for their Jurisdictions and their family members. The first Police Department was created by the “Knights Templar’s” back in 1100 B.C.
The Masonic Fraternal Police Department, (M.F.P.D.) is the Knights Templar’s!
When asked what is the difference between The Masonic Fraternal Police Department and other Police Departments the answer is simple for us. We were here first! We are born into this Organization our bloodlines go deeper then an application.
All punctuation and syntax as per the original.
Secret societies have long been part of the Gothic tradition, since 18th-century fears of Jesuits and Inquisitors.
