TWO RAPIST NYC COPS GET AWAY WITH IT

What's a little rape-by-cop in a town that made an industry of lies about 911?

They were caught on security video going in and out of the victim's apartment THREE DIFFERENT TIMES. They admitted to "curling up in bed" with the victim, who was "bra-less" at the time. She was drunk but she distinctly remembered "being penetrated". The jurors claim there was no DNA evidence, but the collection of that evidence isn't the resposibility of an unconscious sexual assault victim. Welcome to New York, where every unethical hurdle that can be placed in a sex assault victim's way is used to clear dirty cops who abused their trust. These ugly Gestapo Goons did lose their badges though. But they deserve more. A lot more. This is the sort of mindset toward justice that reigns supreme in the NYPD these dark days. All of the post-911 bullshit about foreign terrorists is laid bare as the real enemies of the people are revealed to be the very ones chosen to protect us. In the old West crooked sheriffs and deputies who raped or robbed were strung up by the neck even quicker than seasoned outlaws. Betrayal of that badge was the worst thing a man could do to his community. Welcome to NY, where the victim always "asks for it" and the cops walk away DNA free.
