NYPD Caught Tampering With Evidence.

Charges have been dropped for over 400 people in last year’s mass arrest during the Republican National Convention. While video evidence proved that none of them had committed a crime, the New York Police Department tampered with video evidence in the case of arrested protester Alexander Dunlop. Dunlop, who claimed he was falsely arrested, was charged by the police using confiscated video evidence that had been edited. The police failed to tell the court that the video had been edited in two spots. A member of I-Witness Video had found another tape capturing Dunlop’s arrest, and once the tape was presented to the court showing that Dunlop was acting peacefully, the prosecution immediately dropped the charges. The city is now claiming that the video was edited by a technician by mistake. Nearly 1,700 of the convention cases have run their course with 91% of charges either being dismissed or have come back with a verdict of not guilty.

I guess you can't count on cops to do anything but to protect the local dunkin donuts shop!

I guess because of the acts of a few you can convict the entire NYPD? And I thought it was the Dems who were the ones who were supposed to be the most tolerant of others!

Glad you cleared that up for me....

I will bet however that if your local Dunkin DOnut shop was robbed of all of their donuts you would accuse them of stealing it too wouldn't you...
