It Can Be Hard to Tell the Good Guys from the Bad Guys

A drug dealing cop? This is my shocked face. Drug-dealing cop who beat a hospital patient says he ‘lost his temper’

There is at least 1 good guy in the mix.

Facing a federal judge in Newark, a 26-year-old Paterson police officer on Wednesday admitted beating a suicidal hospital patient in two attacks in March, one of which prosecutors said was captured on cellphone video by a fellow officer.

He pleaded guilty. (With video evidence…)

And “Well done” to that fellow officer. If the good cops are ever going to regain the trust they once enjoyed, then the bad cops are going to have to go, and the good cops are going to need to be seen pushing them out the door.
