At least the officers, who framed the Colon brothers will have a Very Interesting life behind bars.

I can’t think of a profession where there are no idiot crooks. Being police officers, they should get extra punishment for violation of trust.

Let’s hope so. I’m not optimistic. :(

I am sure they will be welcome at all the tables in the chow hall of the state prison.

The undercover NYPD officers are seen on video dancing in the street

Sounds like that musical police series which played for a couple of months back in the 90's.

According to the following article, one of the detectives involved here has already moved on and gotten another job with the Nassau County police:

Trust NYC cops? Maybe one out of every 100 or so.

This is why I favor humane prison conditions.

Single cells, reasonable medical and dental care, safe environment, education and work opportunities for the well behaved, an hour of sunlight each day.

There are innocent people in prison. At the very least, they should not be subject to abuse.

"As a result of his ordeal, Maximo Colon has lost trust in police officers.

That must be the understatement of the year.

Boy! That's some assessment. Just how many NYC cops have you had contact with?

I absolutely agree. Sure, cops are humans and can make mistakes and should be treated equally under the law; however, when a cop abuses his position and violates others' rights under the color of law, I think their punishment should be perhaps double of what a civilian's penalty would be.

LEOs get special treatment and privileges in many ways due to their position and I don't begrudge them that; however, it's a 2-way street. If they abuse their position, they should get "special treatment" of a different sort.

What makes you think so? These guys will walk with a slap on the wrist and they'll move on to some small town police force and just get on with their lives. Show me the last time you saw an LEO go behind bars for this?

This next line tells the whole story, disgusting as it is... "The NYPD is investigating the officers involved in this incident. Two of the officers are reportedly on modified duty."

Modified Duty? and only two of them? Four officers swore to the buy that never happened. Four officers should be behind bars with a girlfriend named Bubba.

Oh, give me a break. This is a story about crooked cops. Drugs just happen to be what they used for a false arrest. If it werent' drugs, they could have easily come up with something else if they were determined to do so. Don't try to hijack this thread and turn it into a tirade for legalizing drugs. Go start a new thread where all the potheads will suck on their bong and join you with glee.

Sounds like another excuse for Ron Paul idiots to light one up.

Indeed there are. Imagine even spending as little as six months in prison on bogus charges. For many of us, a "short" six month stint behind bars is long enough to cost someone their job, deplete their savings, get their car repossessed, lose their home and all their belongings through foreclosure, and destroy their credit. Imagine trying to repair all of that once released? And those are just the financial costs. I hope these guys sue and collect big.

I grew up in Brooklyn and I go to NYC on some normal basis. Some of them look like they want to pistol whip somebody.

I think there are a lot of cops out there that really try to be honest, fair, decent, moral, and professional....trouble is, I am not sure they are in the majority....
