The information below was shared by Rocco Iannacchino via CopBlock.org/Submit about a less-than-savory interaction he had with NYPD’s “finest” in 2011. It’s unclear, despite the objective video, whom Rocco supposedly wronged, and why he was taken away by folks wearing badges.

Brady Cops

testilying-copblock

Self-proclaimed “authorities” dictate that it’s a crime for you to lie to a police employee, but it’s permissible for that police employee to lie to you. This is demonstrative of the double-standards upon which today’s policing institution is based. Police employees lie in conversations on the street (when soliciting information), in their own reports (to […]

Recently a page about Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests was added to this site (copblock.org/foia) in the hope that it lessens the learning curve on how to use that tool to obtain information and thus achieve greater transparency from those who purport to work for us. Yesterday I received an email that informed me […]
