Benevolent Misanthrope: Recine works as a part-time special police officer earning an hourly wage while collecting a $79,000 annual pension for his retirement as a police officer from Franklin in 2006. Helmetta is a small town of less than 2,200 people known for its police speed trap along the main drag.Sounds like he's par for the course in that town.
OtherLittleGuy: So, he'll be suspended with pay.
dantheman195: Why does Helmetta have more cops then most towns twice it size? It is a square mile with 2,200 residents, with an abandoned snuff mill in the middle and a general store across the street.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: He resigned today/my link went red//no surprise there
jake_lex: I bet if you asked this guy "Please give an example of a way in which President Obama has 'decimated' the Constitution", you'd probably either get a variation on "Study it out", or you'd get your ass kicked. Or both.
Gyrfalcon: The guy with the camera was a confrontational douchebag seeking an argument.What he got instead was an asshole with a badge who shouldn't be allowed within a nuclear mile of any position of authority.I don't care how provoking the idiot is who is facing you, soon-to-be private security guard Recine, America (even New Jersey) does NOT need police who feel they don't need to respect the Constitution.Wonder what "Officer" Recine's arrest record and disciplinary jacket looks like....
styckx: At least he didn't use the old "terrorism" angle*clicks play*Oh jesus christ...
dantheman195: Ahh, the liberal utopia we all call New Jersey
Rwa2play: Yeah, give him his walking papers. He doesn't deserve to be a cop...anywhere.
Ivan the Tolerable: styckx: At least he didn't use the old "terrorism" angle*clicks play*Oh jesus christ...This. I also like the whole '9/11' justification for screwing with the guy about filming in a public place.
The My Little Pony Killer: Fired? Unlikely. This little piggie will receive a paid vacation while the department takes a year or so to "investigate" before quietly putting him back on the beat./when that happens, we'll know that there are no good cops on that force
jso2897: BTW - did this guy specify which 1/10 of the Constitution Obama removed?Or did he just line up all the articles and amendments and scratch every tenth one?
mcmnky: Helmetta! Should have guessed.I've now seen more Helmetta stories on Fark (2) than we had traffic lights in town when I lived there (1).And to follow up, he has resigned.
