Well you believe what you want but the fact is the NYPD absolutely detests cab drivers so I absolutely believe what he told me. When I use to drive 20 years ago I got robbed by a passenger in the Bronx who asked me to change a 20, and when i took my money out he slapped me across the face, grabbed my money out of my hand and ran away, and just by chance at the same time a cop car was driving down the street. Godd luck right? Nope! I jumped out and waved them down, told them what happened, and right to my face they told me it was too late he got away and they drove off. Mind you, they SAW him running out of the cab! I don’t know if you live in the city, but next time you take a cab ask the driver what he thinks of the NYPD. I absolutely guarantee you he will tell you the same kind of stuff. When’s the last time you read about anyone getting arrested for robbing a cab driver or even killing one? There was one shot a few days ago. They’ll do nothing about it, you will never hear about this again even if he was killed.
That's well known. Hacks and cops are a mutual hatred society.
What I simply do not believe is that police officers would risk their jobs by doing something as ridiculous as making a hack pay money to a mugger.
If they were going to risk getting fired it would be to do something that profited themselves. This story makes no logical sense at all.
Also, if the cops came to a house where there was a burglar and an armed homeowner, they would not let the burglar go free.
They would arrest the burglar for burglary and arrest the homeowner for unlicensed possession of a weapon.
Why would a cop, who measures his promotions in arrests that stick, not make an arrest like that? It would be a layup conviction for him. Two easy collars for one incident.
This is yet another scenario where you imagine cops engaging in behavior that would be directly contrary to their own interests.
