I'm sure most of you remember the waste of human skin in this video.
Well Officer Piglieri, err, I mean Rivieri, has been caught on tape again
demonstrating again how he loves to intimidate people and lord his
authority over civilians.
New charges against Baltimore City cop';2nd Incident Caught on Tape
2/15/08 New video of Baltimore police officer Salvatore Rivieri in action at the Inner Harbor. This time he confronts Billy Friebele, an artist from
Washington D.C., who was videotaping at the Harbor last summer.
Friebele said he was taping the reactions of passersby to a box he was moving with a remote controlled car. Officer Rivieri is seen on tape kicking
the box off of the car and then kicking the car. The officer then orders Friebele to leave the area.
Rivieri is the same officer caught on a video wrestling a 14 year old skate boarder to the ground. A spokesperson for the Baltimore Police Department
declined to comment on this latest videotape. Officer Rivieri is suspended without pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation of the
incident with the skate boarder.
Apparently a couple artists filming a RC car with a box on it was a big enough crime to send Rivieri into a tirade.
I know some people are going to comment on that the box was an obstruction and someone could have gotten hurt, but those comments sound pretty
ridiculous to me. The box was on top of the car to see people's reactions, and I think the reaction from Rivieri was too over the top.
Why does this man have a badge/authority over civilians? Better yet, why does this man have a gun? This man obviously has some anger problems and
IMO I think he has some personality issues.
He should have been removed from the force after the first video came out of him manhandling that 14 year old.
This video was posted February 15, and at that time he was under investigation for the skateboard incident and was suspended with pay. I don't know
of his current situation, is there any Baltimore residents that do know of any updates?
Hopefully this scum bag got kicked off the force.
