Two Brooklyn cops sideswiped a parked SUV, then arrested a man sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, accusing him of damaging their car, a suit charges.
Jackson was arrested for destruction of city property, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, the suit states.
And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.
The two cops checked the block for surveillance cameras before arresting him for destruction of city property, according to the lawsuit filed by Jackson in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
“When they thought no cameras were on. I saw their gloves go on, and that’s when I was arrested,” Jackson said.
New Jersey police allegedly hid dashcam video from prosecutors showing they beat an innocent man on the side of the road and made up a host of false charges to try to get him imprisoned. Link
So glad these cops were caught. They should never be allowed to be in the force ever again!
Cities need to institute honor systems where the community is also incentivized to report positive service from cops. Every cops promotions and raises are contingent on these rankings.
