Respect for the law

A Brooklyn, New York police officer is being investigated after writing (under a pseudonym) on the internet that he beat suspects, falsified parking tickets, and regularly ignored calls to his precinct for help.

    “So I have come up with a better way of writing tickets. I just write down the plates of the cars that cut me off the the (sic) parkways and I send them a bogus parking ticket in the mail. The person will then have to deal with the Parking Violations Bureau and not me. Problem quickly resolved. So, in other words, be careful who you cut off on the road. They might be an off duty cop and they could write your plates down and write you a $150 parking ticket. Have a nice day.”

    “Sitting behind a desk and looking pretty is not my style,” he stated. “I am the type of person who loves getting my hands dirty whether it is chasing someone down a street or just giving them the ‘good old fashion nypd beat down.’ I hope you didn’t think those beatings don’t really exist do you?”


    On a separate posting detailing his desk duty, he wrote that when people called the precinct trying to report a complaint, his pat response was ” ‘I will send a patrol car there immediately’ but in reality I will wait for them to call back at least 5 times before I really send someone over there.”
