So you actually think you are safe when a guy with a gun and handcuffs pulls you over on a lonely highway? How about your daughter, your sister, your mother or your wife? It couldn’t happen to them because this is just a couple of bad apples, right?      Well let me ask a quick question: If that is the case then why have I been able to compile so many pages of filthy criminal conduct?    I will tell you this much ; For every story I post about a scumbag criminal cop , I pass on 20.     I don’t have enough hours in the day to chronicle all that I read.       These officers are not heroes. They do not “Risk their lives every day”. Their job is not even in the top ten most dangerous. These are people who have chosen to control others as their career choice. These are people who wish to force their will on their fellow citizens and do so with the threat of force.    The next time you see a cop, take a good look at him and his attitude . Don’t look at the uniform or the badge look at the man and then see if you like what you view. 

Excerpted from here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/11/02/nypd-detectives-raped-a-teen-in-the-back-of-a-police-van-after-her-arrest-prosecutors-say/?utm_term=.a1a9372cad1e

“Two police officers accused of raping a teenager while she was in custody resigned on Monday, the New York Police Department said.

The two former NYPD detectives — Eddie Martins, 37, and Richard Hall, 33 — are facing dozens of criminal charges and a possible $50 million lawsuit after the teenager accused them of raping her while she was handcuffed inside a police van. The indictment followed a weeks-long investigation of the two former officers who, prosecutors said, pulled over a car driven by the 18-year-old, arrested her for drug possession, then took turns raping her in the back seat.

The resignation came three days before the officers were scheduled for a departmental trial, a separate proceeding from a criminal trial. During that process, officers are tried on charges of misconduct. A trial commissioner decides if they’re guilty and makes recommendations to the police commissioner.”

“Martins and Hall, who were members of the NYPD’s Brooklyn South narcotics unit, have been charged with rape, sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, official misconduct and coercion. In total, they are facing 50 charges each.

DNA recovered from the victim after a rape-kit test matched samples taken from Martins and Hall officials said. Surveillance footage also showed the teen getting out of the police van about 40 minutes after she was pulled over, prosecutors said.

The arrests and the former officers’ arraignment hearing on Oct. 30 capped off weeks of serious allegations of misconduct that have been circulating in the media.”

“Prosecutors said the crimes occurred the night of Sept. 15, when the officers were riding in an unmarked Dodge Caravan as part of a buy-and-bust operation in South Brooklyn. The two detectives, who were in plain clothes at the time, left their post without their supervisor’s permission at about 7:30 p.m. and drove to a park in Coney Island, according to the Brooklyn district attorney’s office.

A little later, the officers pulled over the teen, who was with two male passengers, and found marijuana in the cup holder next to the front seat, prosecutors said. (The Washington Post generally does not identify people who are or may have been victims of sexual assault.)

They then handcuffed her and let the two passengers go before driving off with the teen in the back of the van, prosecutors said.

Before they left, the officers allegedly told the passengers to pick up their friend at the Coney Island police precinct in three hours.

While in the van, Martins called the teen’s friends from his cellphone and told them not to follow the police vehicle, Assistant District Attorney Frank DeGaetano said during the hearing, according to the Times.

As Martins sat in the back seat with the teen, he told her that he and his partner were “freaks” and asked what she would do to get herself out of trouble, prosecutors said. Martins then forced the teen to perform oral sex on him and raped her while Hall drove and watched in the rearview mirror, prosecutors said.

The teen cried and pleaded for the officer to stop, DeGaetano said in court.

The van allegedly stopped in Bay Ridge, roughly four miles from where the teen was pulled over. There, the officers switched places and Hall forced the teen to perform oral sex on him, prosecutors said.

The detectives then drove to the Coney Island precinct and dropped the teen off after ordering her not to talk about the incident, prosecutors said”
