Bad Cops With Big Quotas

Surprise, surprise — cops hassle and arrest innocent people to meet their numbers. Here’s a news investigation of the NYPD and their corrupt practice of violating the rights of peaceful citizens. Listen to the one cop with a conscience.

On a similar theme, this YouTube is rather telling (and chilling). A fella was legally engaging in open carry and was stopped and harassed by an agitated cop acting like King of the Hill. Listen to him repeatedly say that he was “violated” by the man who arrived on “his scene.” The words “my scene” are repeated close to a dozen times in this video. He calls for a backup, so then we have two fat cops trying to look like badasses harassing the man. The man doesn’t give in and show his ID, and he eventually walks away from the scene.

    The officer that initiated the consensual encounter with the open carry fella was ignorant of the law and used the traffic stop as pretext for the encounter even though the video showed he terminated the traffic stop.

    It could be considered a detention as a backup officer arrived and now two armed officers attempted to persuade the fella to show identification. The fella had the right to refuse to show his identification as he violated no law and had every right to walk away from encounter. The two officers knew it was a consensual encounter and/or a possible illegal detention. The video camera was a wise tool to have as it kept the officers at a distance and made them think of their actions. I believe everyone should stand up for their rights because if we don’t we will become a police state.

    I am a 21 year veteran peace officer ( Lean Primal build Karen ) and highly recommend that everyone read/buy the book, “You & The Police” by Boston T. Party.

    Almost all cops are ignorant of the law – and of pretty much everything else.

    They’re not ignorant of the law. They are lying and they know it. Courts have ruled that the police can lie in order to obtain information from you that they can and will use against you in court.

    They even lie in court.

    Regarding the first video, here’s what I see. Out of the entire NY police force, one single officer blows the whistle on the corrupt practices of the department.

    An analogy is a department with 100 officers. In that department, 10 of those officer accept bribes, and beat and plant evidence on suspects. All the other members of the department know what’s going on. Finally, some of the miscreants are caught on videotape. ( That’s about what it takes nowadays for a complaint to be taken seriously.)

    The MSM complains about a few bad apples. But the bottom line is that everyone in the department knows what’s happening, and yet they do nothing about it.

    So how may are really crooked? In some instances, turning one’s head to avoid learning the truth is tantamount to fraud on the part of the person who didn’t blow the whistle.

    Of course one is labeled a “conspiracy theorist” and branded with a name – like a “truther” or a “birther” if one questions the statist quo.

    Everyone in the department in the case is guilty of conspiring against the rights of the citizenry. And one officer spoke out. How many bad apples is that in the Big Apple?

    It appears that officer Polanko (sp?) isn’t cut out to be in the NYPD. After five years on the force, he learned that he has a conscience.

    You can bet he won’t last long.

    @M. Terry: I think another component of the “web of deceit” is the fact that a concerned officer might have legitimate concerns about his and his family’s safety. The whole thing is a lucrative racket for what you identified as the crooked “10%”. They’ll likely do whatever it takes to keep that gravy train moving along.

    BTW, I love the “statist quo” label. Not sure if that was a typo or not. ;)
