I’ll Give You Something to Videotape You F***ing Clown – Lodi Police Employee


Early in the morning of January 25th 26th, 2014 a man saw some Lodi police employees detaining another gentleman and attempted to capture the truth of the incident with his camera. Immediately he was aggressively confronted and called a “fucking clown.” This, by someone who swore an oath to “protect the innocent against … intimidation” and to “enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear.” The videographer left the scene as he felt “very threatened,” according to the person who send the copy of the video to Cop Block.

Today I called the Lodi police outfit and spoke with Richard Policastro, who heads-up the patrol division, and Vincent A. Quatrone, the deputy chief to find out the names of the Lodi police employee on the scene:

  • Richard Cordero #155
  • Frank DeBartola #137

Will the aggressive Lodi-police-badge-wearing individual who clearly acted out of line be held accountable?

 UPDATES

  • 2014.01.28 10pm EST – email with link to this video sent to Vincent Quatrone, deputy chief of Lodi police vquatrone@lodipd.org
  • 2014.01.30 10:15am EST – spoke with Vincent Caruso, chief of Lodi police, who indicated that 1) the incident in question happened in the early morning hours of 2014.01.16 and thus, not all the information communicated in the video was accurate. Specifically, that Christopher Perrilli was not working that shift and thus had no involvement with the incident. As such, his name has been removed from the above text and an annotation has been added to the video. And 2) that an internal affairs investigation is underway and when it’s concluded, Caruso will reach out and share the outcome
