Frank Serpico: The Police Are Still Out Of Control
When Frank Serpico speaks, many should listen. He nearly died to uncover what he speaks about.


Earlier this year, I finally watched Serpico, from beginning to end. never saw the movie before, as I was a kid when it was released. In total shock after watching it, especially at how he was shunned by his fellow officers after uncovering truth AND nearly being killed on the job. I then wondered what happened to him. I found an article and posted it online in a few places. https://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/24/nyregion/24serpico.html Still in shock at how he still receives hate mail from law enforcement members.

Now, he's making news and trending and for all the right reasons. But I see what he's saying about corruption. However, it's no longer drug dealers, it's white collar frauds and corrupt companies in suits and ties, using our taxpayer-funded law enforcement to do their dirty work. And the irony is, these same corrupt companies will back lawmakers, who will then strip benefits (pensions, unions, health benefits and more) from law enforcement, to offset loss of revenue because of white collar fraud and corrupt companies.

Those that speak out should be rewarded and respected by their superiors, not punished. We're not there yet.

"As for Barack Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, they're giving speeches now, after Ferguson. But it's 20 years too late. It's the same old problem of political power talking, and it doesn't matter that both the president and his attorney general are African-American. Corruption is color blind. Money and power corrupt, and they are color blind too.

Only a few years ago, a cop who was in the same 81st Precinct I started in, Adrian Schoolcraft, was actually taken to a psych ward and handcuffed to a gurney for six days after he tried to complain about corruption – they wanted him to keep to a quota of summonses, and he wasn't complying. No one would have believed him except he hid a tape recorder in his room, and recorded them making their demands. Now he's like me, an outcast."

we're a longggggg ways from here, locally and nationwide... 😩😣

The sum total of all that experience can be encapsulated in a few simple rules for the future:

1. Strengthen the selection process and psychological screening process for police recruits. Police departments are simply a microcosm of the greater society. If your screening standards encourage corrupt and forceful tendencies, you will end up with a larger concentration of these types of individuals;

2. Provide ongoing, examples-based training and simulations. Not only telling but showing police officers how they are expected to behave and react is critical;

3. Require community involvement from police officers so they know the districts and the individuals they are policing. This will encourage empathy and understanding;

4. Enforce the laws against everyone, including police officers. When police officers do wrong, use those individuals as examples of what not to do – so that others know that this behavior will not be tolerated. And tell the police unions and detective endowment associations they need to keep their noses out of the justice system;

5. Support the good guys. Honest cops who tell the truth and behave in exemplary fashion should be honored, promoted and held up as strong positive examples of what it means to be a cop;

6. Last but not least, police cannot police themselves. Develop permanent, independent boards to review incidents of police corruption and brutality—and then fund them well and support them publicly. Only this can change a culture that has existed since the beginnings of the modern police department.

We must create an atmosphere where the dishonest cop fears the honest cop, not the other way around.

And Then, There's Always This...

Confederates are not heroes nor brave men! They're the worst of ANY society!
kkk LOSER and creep Nathan Bedford Forrest

Cretin-confederates WERE scheduled to be AND should have been banned from this country after the Civil War ended, if they did NOT pledge allegiance to the UNITED STATES. Low-life confederates have only pledged allegiance to the lost-cause-confederacy, thus all their confederate monuments, street naming, etc. during the Civil Rights movement. Low-life confederates have provided nothing but hatriotism with mass murder. President Lincoln, Secretary of State William Seward and Thaddeus Stevens were 100% correct about the evil hearts of confederates. Look at their hateful legislation TODAY, and everyday. Now, low-life confederates attempting to overthrow our government via courts/SCOTUS, on behalf of worst persons on earth, led by 🦇💩🤪🍊🤡! READ MORE...
