Serpico 2 in the Works


The NYPD officer who had hundreds of hours of conversations recorded proving the police department was under reporting crimes is now suing the city for 50 million dollars after they had him commited. He was forcibly put into a psych ward for six days after coming forward with the tapes. Could turn out to be a huge pay day for dropping a dime.

One of the biggest crimes they didn't report was they hired a rat.

I listened to his story on npr a while back.  The way they treated him was the same way that the guy who wanted a complaint form was treated.  But i still don't understand why he expected his superiors to address his concerns.  He kept secretly recording his conversations with them and was very passive aggressive on the tapes while his sergent and captain would say things like oink oink oink, or ask him pointed questions about tapeing conversations like oink oink?

 @myleslasco The this american life episode is amazing! I highly suggest everyone listen to it. Really fucked up when you listen to it. Crazy that this amount of corruption still occurs. I always knew about quotas, which is not that big of a deal, but the downgrading of crimes that went on is wild.
