This guy has to be trying to get arrested... Does he go around showing cops his ID and asking them to look it up?

Hey, 100k for a few days in jail... seems like a profitable hobby.

This is why they have punitive damages. But what do you do when punitive awards fail to change the behavior?

/Yes, I know it was a settlement the first time
 
2010-02-03 06:36:42 PM
How often does this guy run into the cops where they ask him for ID?
 
2010-02-03 06:36:54 PM
awesome , wish i had his problems ...
 
2010-02-03 06:36:57 PM
120,000 for 28 days in jail? I'll take it.

Headline: $100,000
Article: $120,000

Conclusion: Headline not only refers to the NYPD, it also refers to the Submitter.

After the first pay-off, probably four times a day. I know I would.
 
2010-02-03 06:38:48 PM
Ooooooh, they gave him $120,000 in the first lawsuit... He's REALLY gonna clean up this time. I bet after the amount he's awarded this time they're sure gonna remember him. Oh yes indeed.

I can only imagine 2 scenarios. The first would be that the police are actively searching for the real felon and coming up with addresses in this guys name and then tracking him down and arresting him. Which would be massive fail on their part for not checking it's the right guy. The second is that the guy just tracks down police officers and shows them his ID just to get arrested.

Either way this guy is going to end up a millionaire if they don't stop arresting him soon.

Yeah. That's going to be one upset jury unless there's something going on here that the article doesn't mention.

How hard would it be to give the doofus an FOP card that says "I'm not the Dude vonDudemeister you're looking for - don't believe me

Headline says PROFIT, not AWARD. I assume his lawyer cost more than a few bucks.

C) Police run his plates a lot, see his name and associated red flag on the name? He could be black and drive a nice car.

That was Sgt M O'Malley, Sgt's C,D,E,F,Gr,Go,S,R,To and Ti O'Malley all still work in the 12th.

It's not that this guy is being arrested, it's that he is being detained for several days. How long would your employer tolerate you being in jail ... again? Ff the NYPD cannot even correctly identify this one guy after multiple attempts how will they catch the actual bad guys?

Anyway he probably is a scumbag and deserves everything that is coming to him and more. Ya thats it. (sarcasm)
 
2010-02-03 07:03:53 PM
I knew a guy with similiar experience -- same name as a wanted felon -- but it happened in Los Angeles where we apparently have smarter cops, who didn't put him in jail every time they pulled him over or showed up at his house to arrest him. Finally, the chief of police gave him a letter to carry with him to show officers that he wasn't the guy they wanted. He had a really weird last name, too.

After seeing a few NYPD traps (and I don't just mean speed traps), they deserve what's coming to them at times.

You know this lawsuit isn't getting settled any time soon.
 
2010-02-03 07:10:22 PM
That would be easy money. Just take a vacation from work and run a red light in front of a cop. Sure, he gets a ticket, but they also run his name and arrest him. I'd pay a Few hundred bucks for a ticket to get a 100,000 payout
 
2010-02-03 07:15:41 PM
maybe he should invest some of that money in some plastic surgery---change his looks so he doesnt look like the other guy.

i once had sheriffs deputies knock on my door and try to arrest me for non-payment of child support. the fact that i've never had children (and have a different SSN than the perp in question) seemed to blow their fragile little minds.

/true story, bro.
 
2010-02-03 07:17:24 PM
That's it, I am doing some research and changing my name. This seems all to easy.

pudding7: How often does this guy run into the cops where they ask him for ID?

More than likley the cops search the databases since it was a warrant, and do a warrant roundup. He tells them they got the wrong guy the cops smirk and say yeah sure fella what ever like we havent heard that one before. The city looses alot of money and the cops maybe get a slap on the wrist.
 
2010-02-03 07:28:19 PM
After awhile, there's gonna be a big red flag that pops up whenever anyone checks his ID and it'll get to the point that he'd be able to rob a bank or ravish a nun and walk up to the cops and confess, and they'll say "Yeah, pull the other one, buddy."
 
2010-02-03 07:36:01 PM
He could become a successful bank robber and let the other guy wrack up plenty of extra convictions.
 
2010-02-03 07:36:31 PM
ugh this happened to my dude...he had the same name as a murderer on the loose. hauled to jail a couple of times, cops raided the crib late at night...just bad times all around. they had different middle initials & had about 8" height difference, but hey, black people all look the same, right?
 
2010-02-03 07:39:36 PM
why should he change his name. i have the same name of some felon just like this guy. the only reason i don't get hualed off to jail is i'm white. this is obserd. i once spent 4 hours on the side of the road for speeding 7 miles over the limit cause of this crap. the only reason i did not go to jail that time was cause i had a ct drivers lic. and the guy they want is from dc. now i live in wv and am praying one of these dumbass cops try anything. this guy gets the guilty for being black crap and everyone is like change your name. how bout the cops make damn sure they got the right guy before they haul him off like they do for me.

You sound like a guy who has never been to jail.

2010-02-03 07:48:42 PM
1. Be slightly disrespectful to any cop you come across.
2. Have the same name as a felon.
3. Profit.
 
2010-02-03 07:49:46 PM
His lawyer probably turned him in the second time so he could get another fee for representing him.
 
2010-02-03 07:56:43 PM
I really don't understand how be spends weeks or even MONTHS in jail at a time?! Wouldn't he be in front of a judge for a hearing 9 o'clock tomorrow morning? Worst case, he gets arrested at 9:00 Saturday night and has to wait until Monday morning. That's 36 hours, tops.

Secondly, at some point, wouldn't they at least, oh I don't know, perchance maybe, fingerprint him? He's in jail for a freaking month and they haven't so much as booked him, yet?!

*

An acquaintance once told me he basically has to report to the police station once a month or so and get fingerprinted, or the computer recognizes his name and sends cops to his address. When I related this story on fark, someone told me he was probably on probation and just didn't want to tell anyone. Now I'm not so sure.

I love how the Homeland Security Real ID database is indexed only by first and last name, as if these were absolutely unique. Seriously, WTH?

This is exactly why I named my kids Charlie Manson, Elizabeth Borden, and Jack Theripper.
 
2010-02-03 08:01:15 PM
The guy is probably also a lowlife thug since he keeps getting stopped by the police.
 
2010-02-03 08:04:11 PM
Happened to my dad once. Dude was wanted for rape and had same first and last name and middle initial. Too bad they didn't check to see that they had two different middle names. Oh and not to mention the guy they wanted was a black man.
 
2010-02-03 08:09:21 PM
Perducci: This is exactly why I named my kids Charlie Manson, Elizabeth Borden, and Jack Theripper.

I don't think the cops are looking for Jack or Lizzy anymore..

//and they KNOW where Manson is.

Panty Sniffer: The guy is probably also a lowlife thug since he keeps getting stopped by the police.

probably not. my whole 4 hour deal had NYPD all over it. nowhere else has my name popped up yet. it happens cause NYPD runs a NAC/LIC check of the database when they pull you over which popped my name up with the idiot who shares my name. the only other time my name came up was when i got custody of my daughter they ran a home inspection which required a fbi check and bamm up popped a intent to sell drugs warrant. which requiered me to get a lawyer to threten them with a defamation suit if they did not fix the report. funny thing is i hold a top secret clearance with the gov. which you can't get if you have a felony.
