'RAPE' COPS ON TAPE
NY Post ^ | March 2, 2009 | BRAD HAMILTON and MURRAY WEISS

Posted on 03/03/2009 9:57:58 PM PST by neverdem

A uniformed cop accused of raping an East Village woman in her apartment tried to hide from a surveillance camera while using a key to enter her building, sources said yesterday.

But what he didn't appear to know was that there was a second camera catching his and his partner's every move before and after the alleged sexual assault, the sources said.

The NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating a claim that the patrolman raped an intoxicated business executive after the cop and his partner responded to a cabdriver's 911 plea for help with his drunken passenger, the sources said.

Several sources identified the cops as Kenneth Moreno, a 17-year NYPD veteran who is married with two kids, and Franklin L. Mata, who has been on the force for three years.

The cops helped the disoriented woman to her fifth-floor apartment shortly after midnight on Dec. 7, and later returned to check on her condition, the sources said.

But when they came back a second time, Moreno allegedly raped the woman as his partner stood by, the sources said.

Moreno and Mata were caught on tape by a surveillance camera outside a bar called Heather's on East 13th Street, near the victim's apartment building.

The cops escorted the woman into the building at about 1 a.m. and stayed seven minutes before leaving, according to the bar's owner, Heather Millstone, who saw the tape.

They came back about 40 minutes later and stayed for 20 minutes, she said.

Then they came back 20 minutes later for a third time and stayed another 40 minutes, she added.

"When they leave the second time, one notices the camera, and they do their best to avoid the camera," Millstone said. "It's as plain as day. When they enter the building the third time...."

not sure about the sex, but the heroin will get the veteran cop fired. not sure about the rookie.

Investigators searched the cops' station-house lockers and found heroin as well as personal information of other women in the locker of the older cop, the sources said.

Both tested negative for illegal drugs, officials said. The cops met with prosecutors, but have refused to answer questions, according to the sources.

Not sure if you need ESL, but your writing would get anyone fired. You sure write like rookie.

I do look forward to seeing the FR members who defend LEO under every possible imaginable scenario spin this.

hopefully these 2 get life, or a number functionally equivalent. it is very unlikely this was their first time.

Do you mean that extremely long and well documented collection of isolated incidents involving police in ongoing criminal, violent or otherwise completely unprofessional acts?

Those isolated incidents?

If there is any justice remaining in the world, death for both of these soulless animals.

There is nothing that can excuse these men of this horrific crime even though I’m sure the Free Republic Jackboot Cheer Squad will be working hard to come up with something.

If the badge means anything, those who wear it must be held to a higher standard of conduct and punished accordingly when they betray the community they are sworn to protect.

Certainly. All of the incidents you mentioned have been documented as isolated for decades studying a very large sample base.

Excuse Me? “a 17-year NYPD veteran who is married with two kids” ???

Did he become police when he was 10 or something? And with “kids” plural?

You added an “old” that isn’t there.

“17 year”, not “17 year old”, he’s been a cop for 17 years.

Don’t worry about a thing. An “internal investigation” will take care of the whole thing. These guys are headed for a suspension, I’ll bet.

Heroin and personal information of other women?
Oh well, on the upside at least it wasn't a pack of cigarettes or a bottle of cooking oil with trans fats. Then they'd REALLY be in trouble.

And I'm glad Bloomie doesn't want to 'prejudice anything'. Too bad he doesn't think of that when he slanders gun dealers in Georgia, Alabama, etc. (frinken mutt)

“hopefully these 2 get life”

I think the 2nd guy should get 6 months. Apparently nothing was found in his locker or it would have been mentioned. The accuser says he did nothing but stand by and watch. And he may have been subjected to pressure by the veteran cop. Sure he should not have stood by and watched. But that is his crime, not rape or anything else.

“I thought veteran cops often kept a stash for their snitches?”

Or to sell or to use to set someone up. They aren’t supposed to be keeping heroin in their lockers. He should be charged with possession of heroin.

“Sure he should not have stood by and watched. But that is his crime, not rape or anything else.”

An accomplice is just as guilty as the main actor in the eyes of the law. He might be able to plead to something else if he agrees to testify against the other cop, if charges are ever filed.

So the cops will arrest a six-year-old kid for drawing a stick figure with a gun in school but they won't even arrest two cops that look like they've committed rape? Wow. What was the definition of 'police state' again?

What would a civilian get? Serious question, I don’t know. Even if it is something like that, needs to be a felony, not a misdemeanor.

Look for the “Blue Brotherhood” to close in around them. My apologies to good cops everywhere - but you have a duty to get rid of the scum amongst you and NOT protect them. By whatever means you deem necessary.

Take out the trash, and maybe Citizens will start to have faith in you again.

Pretty much like how the jihadist muslims ruin it for the rest of them. The FBI wouldn’t need to station informants in the mosques if the brotherhood of muslims was outing those who meant harm for this nation and recruitment for holy war.
