Waiting on line at post office, corrupt NYPD cop (vanity)
Myself | 4/17/2012

Posted on 04/17/2012 5:40:52 PM PDT by GreaterSwiss

Waited on line at post office to mail ira deposit today. Line was about 40 people long because of taxes. A NYPD cop just skips the line and walks to the counter. As he was walking back I said, "corrupt cop". He said "he's busy". Like none of the private sector people aren't busy. Then as people started questioning him, saying "aren't we busy too" he said I know, "you pay my salary" and laughed.

I don't have a problem with this.

People have the police force that they deserve.

When you finally got back outside, had he shot your dog?

That's usually what happens.

The arrogance of a unionized government employee.However,there are NYPD cops who die in the line of duty and others who literally save the lives of otherwise helpless civilians.If this cop belongs in that category (and I know that not all do) then cutting in line at the Post Office might be a price worth paying.

You’re lucky he didn’t arrest you.

Well I don't think that would make me mad actually and can you really call him corrupt because he cut in line. Be thankful he didn't shoot you (just kidding). I just remember my dad saying to me “Don't sweat the small stuff” In light of all the crap that our government is shoving down out throats seems like this is small although it may be irritating.

"As he was walking back I said.."

Good work speaking up. Next try it before the act. "Hey you! Get out of my face!" is better than "Ouch! That hurt, you meanie!"

I grew up in small towns and we always had good cops.

In my hometown our local cop often imposed his own community service on us delinquent teenagers. Painting the bleachers at the softball diamond or mowing grass around town were pretty fair punishments for being caught underage drinking.

If you put up with the little stuff, then they push the big stuff. Sorta like the GOP-e is doing with Romney.

I believe the time to speak is in the first instance.

And if the cop had waited in line, everybody would have been bitching about how crime was happening while he was wasting his time in said line.

We use to select one member of our squid to stand in line for all and would contribute to his/her next meal. Worked great.

It makes life so much more pleasant. Our little post office is the local gossip shop where was all hang out and talk local news. I like it, its like Petticoat Junction.

I agree with you. Some “hero” shoots a basketball through a few hoops and earns millions of dollars. Police Officers put their lives on the line day in and day out to protect the public. . .Personally, I think their pay is extremely low for what they do.

Is "squid" Navy term or is it a typo for "squad"? I know nothing about the Navy...I was Army.

My returns were filed electronically a week ago but the last time I was the post office was a week ago right after 4 pm where it really builds up the line. That’s my fault for being there at that time. But no worries...karma’s a bitch. What comes around, goes around for this donut eater.

You must be a New Yorker, no one else anywhere says “wait on line” (outside of the computer realm) I’m from Conencticut, and even there, no one uses that turn of phrase.

"you pay my salary"

Did you tell him you are going to dock his pay and a penalty for doing personal business during work hours.

There is no lunch break in the traditional sense. You eat while in service and you catch a call, you go. Or hopefully you got a buddy that will shag the call for you.

Citizens understand that coppers got to eat, but doing your taxes on the citizen dime equals bad PR. That just shows poor planning on that officer’s part.

Yes, cops are allowed a lunch break. So are Firemen.
I always my offer place in line to the uniformed cops and Firemen I encounter at restaurants, convenience and grocery stores.

As far as I know, the Post Office doesn't offer food for sale...

“wait on line”

What else would you use in place of it? Or is it only NY'ers who have to wait on line?

Corrupt? I don’t see it that way.........all I see is a bunch of rude people who have rightly given New Yorkers a bad rep as rude people.

I say that as someone who was born and raised in Brooklyn and who comes from 3 generations of NYPD.

The vicious comments on this thread are beneath contempt and more appropriate for DU - I have always expected better of FReepers

A lot of excuses for corrupt police behavior here. Cops cutting in line is not appropriate. It’s an abuse of authority. I’m glad you said something to the idiot.

Agreed. Too much cop bashing. All industries have their cream of the crop and the sediment on the bottom. I think its wrong to lump them all with the sediment. People need to get a grip and stop complaining about every liitle thing they don't like and worry about their own actions.

“Did you tell him you are going to dock his pay and a penalty for doing personal business during work hours.”

And if he’s done the math,,he’ll tell you he makes 65k,, and there are a few million people in NYC,, meaning your contribution to the pay of any individual officer is a fraction of a cent. He might flip you a penny and say “here’s your refund, keep the change”.
Cops are not all rocket scientists,,, but they do learn to handily deal with a lot of smart-ass remarks.

Well baby, many of us don't loan that money to Uncle Sam. And we wait to the last minute to pay what we owe. Interest free I might add.

Thanks,Gabz.

One of my sons has been with the NYPD for 19 years.

The cop hating threads here on FR are just as bad as the one on lib sites.

I don’t hate the cops, but I think this was wrong of the cop to do.

He should not act like he is above the law. He should stand in line like everyone else. It just breeds resentment for him to do that, and it is arrogant of him.

People want to offer him a place, buy him a meal, tell him thanks, give him their parking spot, more power to them. But he should not just take it.

Thank you both.

I know there are bad cops, but they are a very, very small percentage - and my late grandfather, my dad and my kid brother would all be the first to tell anyone that.

I’m the first one to condemn a corrupt cop - but I will not stand silently by when the good ones are being condemned for no bloody reason.

Mears - thank your son for me. Being NYPD is not an easy job - even on the good days!
