Not sure if this is on here yet, searched but didn't find anything that related to this 'happening' ... this is an interesting example of how crooked some cops can be ... article below with video

The New York City Police Department has launched an internal probe to investigate a raid on a Staten Island bar. In a video posted on YouTube, police officers wearing jackets decorated with the NYPD logo can be seen smashing gambling machines at the "Beer Goggles" bar and putting confiscated cash into their pockets.

"A shocking video showing NYPD cops raiding a bar, smashing gambling machines and shoving confiscated cash into their pockets has become an Internet hit and led to an internal probe of the officers involved," The New York Post reports.

Criminal Justice editor Murray Weiss continues, "No official determination has been made as to whether cops were simply doing their jobs during the Nov. 14, 2007, raid on Beer Goggles, a troubled bar on Staten Island, or if they had more sinister motives. But they told superiors things were done according to procedure."

According to the paper, "The raiders reported confiscating approximately $700 and arrested three workers for promoting gambling."

ANd thier was an investigation? Unless the bar owner was hiding coc aine in thier, thier shoulda been 0 reason for them to smash the gambling machines open...that would be reckless endagement and destruction of private property via the NYPD...which is what appears in the video. All for $700 too? Money is money, but damn, if i was desperate, idee go after the big bucks, not chump change.
