Cop. Gang banger. Sometimes the only difference is the color of the colors.

The NYPD is a pack of criminals.
Although it is a little surprising this guy is just a vandal and not something more violent, given that he's retired NYPD.

Considering that in the past couple of weeks 16 NYPD cops were indicted for bribery, perjury, and obstruction of justice, one for rape at gunpoint, seven for planting drugs on innocent suspects, eight for gun-running, three for robbing a perfume warehouse, and one for making a false arrest as a favor to his cousin, this guy seems like a model officer.

We have historically accepted corruption in some police departments, getting away with drunk driving, testilying.

Only recently did the police start turning on the population in general to be 'tough on crime' and to generate revenue, while not improving their own problems.

Now it is more than just poor urban people that learn how to say 'fark the police'.

Nowhere to be seen, probably because they exist only in your head.
The NYPD is an outlet for those with no opportunities or self-esteem. I imagine some of the crimes they commit on a daily basis involve some level of creativity.

Maybe he's too old and/or crippled after a career of beating up vandals, you know?

At least he didn't claim to be Samo. Because Samo was KING. Also, Renee was the best artist.

Who else from the Fark community was around New York in the Eighties? Remember seeing those Haring drawings in the subway?

Some of the stuff below is pretty amazing. Just throwing up tags, and doing what passes for a dog pissing on street post by gang members is another thing entirely.

35,000 NYPD Officers.

36 bad cops.

That's 0.102%

(Cue: "Cops looking out for cops" "Just the cops we know about" "That's only in the past couple of weeks" "Fascist Pigs")

But, but, but, (insert your location here)'s finest are the most wonderful people ever to draw breath.

I know this because hoardes of authoritarian Farkpologists have told me so.

But then again, if this guy was a real dedicated cop he wouldn't let a bum leg stop him from getting out there with his "brothers" macing and beating the piss out of those ninety-nine percenters.
 
2011-11-06 9:25:04 PM  
You're right, ZackDanger. We should expect 36 NYPD cops every few months to get caught committing major felonies. That's totally acceptable.

And no, I didn't include the near-weekly DUI's that plague the police department, and yes, given the near-worthless state of the Internal Affairs Bureau, I'm sure there are hundreds more who don't get caught.

Just because you 'called' these objections doesn't mean they're valid, farktard.

Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be tagged by men with spraycans. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt, Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for these walls, and you curse the taggers. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of of not knowing what I know. That the painting of these walls, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want to know the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me painting that wall, you need me painting that wall. We use words like honor, code, hip-hop. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very tagging that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I tag it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a spraycan, and spray a wall. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

There are two theories. The first is that this is an organized conspiracy. The other more bizarre theory is that this is the work of one man - Superman, apparently!

Det. Ryan: A fire in the bathroom. You leave the mayor's office unguarded for a fire in the bathroom? Jesus Christ, Callahan. That trick's in my kid's commando game! You'd better get yourself a new pair of shoes, Callahan.
Callahan the Cop: I'm... gonna be... doing a lot of walking?
Det. Ryan: [nods] Smart man. Have a nice day.


Mayor Tyler: If I see one more of this Turk messages that is bigger than a postage stamp, you are going to spend the rest of your career - I swear before God - pounding the beat in the South Bronx! Is that clear, Ryan?

Det. Ryan: [trying to find out who's behind Turk 182] Just give us the names and addresses of everyone involved.
Terry Lynch: Everyone?
Det. Ryan: Everyone involved.
Terry Lynch: There's the Penguin, the Riddler, Catwoman, Darth Vader, Jack the Ripper, Atila the Hun...

/Turk 182! quotes seemed appropriate here.

considering most of these "retired" officers go on to find full employment elsewhere, its 40k extra a month into their pockets.

I've been out of work for 2 years and even the fricking fast food places won't hire me. Right now I think I'd run over a bag of newborn puppies and eat their faces raw for a $10,000 a year pension.

or a $1 million annual salary?
 
2011-11-07 5:51:37 AM  
In at 18, out at 38, full health, dental, vision, and $38K per year. Very low for a cop, though. I smell cop math. More like $60K per year when everything is added in, I'd guess. Not to mention he apparently never veered away from being a hypocrite who does the things he used to bust others for.
