LFUCG doesn't want you to read this

Fayette jail whistleblower Cpl. John Vest said the following under oath in his multi-million dollar civil suit against the city of Lexington (LFUCG):
"I did my job really, really good and one of these days you'll find out how well I did my job. I upheld the oath that I took in the military to protect and defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I uphold the oath that Fayette County gave me when they commissioned me as a peace officer, a sworn officer. I took that oath. I upheld it. I risked myself greatly."

"And I want to tell you something, ma'am. Every day that I went to work undercover, I was scared to death, every day, and I watched things that still affect me to today."

"No pay; you're shunned by your government that you're working for; you're protecting the Constitution, but the government you're working for doesn't want to support you even though they could, and they want to do anything they can to slander you or put you down. They want to deny that I received any training whatsoever from LFUCG when I'm still a sworn officer."

"And ma'am, I am still a sworn officer today as far as I'm stil an employee. They haven't fired me. And if I had done anything wrong, I would have been gone a long time ago. And the FBI just doesn't walk into facilities like that and take a U-Haul truckload of stuff out. And it just doesn't take the FBI three nights to look at all that evidence. And it didn't take -- it didn't take me being a dishonest peace officer or being -- or not being credible to get a federal judge in Washington D.C. to sign a sealed search warrant to where they can walk in that facility and escort your director to master control and tell him, you open these doors and we are taking this stuff. That didn't happen because I was not credible, and that didn't happen because they didn't have evidence that supported a sealed search warrant, ma'am, and that search warrant's still sealed."

"You haven't even read that search warrant, have you, ma'am? It's not open. I was credible. I still am credible."
