    Person kidnapped. Ransom demand made via phone call. Call traced to a detective's home. Detective answers the door.

    Why was the detective not arrested? The other three perpetrators were arrested. But the detective who owns the house were the victim was found, while he was there, gets a suspension. It is stories like these that make you wonder.

    Now, would an LEO tell me how this is "part of a case" or try to explain this away?:dunno:

    Interesting....

    The ole crooked cop, "I went undercover on my own defense?"

    Nowadays, I wouldn't be surprised.

    ETA: I have no clue from just reading the article.

    A quick glance of the article brings a couple questions. Can we know more about the building - it refers to it as his home and also says another guy lives in the building. Is it a single family home or multi-unit dwelling? How did we determine Johnson owns the home or building? Is the garage solely used by him or is it a common garage? If it is not a single family home what if any is the relationship between these people? What type of telephone was traced, a hard wire line or a cellphone?

    All valid and good things to think on right now. I mean insomuch as there are many unknowns at this point in time.
     
  5. The way the article is written, one of the kidnappers who was arrested and charged lives at that building (updated article says he was a family member). As already asked, was the garage a common area or maybe also rented? (article says detached garage). The phone that was traced belonged to the kidnapped victim.

    Also, the four people arrested knew the victim. Seems they did past business together. Question is, what did the victim say about the cop and his role?

    This is what I found interesting: NYPD cops can't even hang out with who they want to off-duty? Or associate with family members who have criminal records? Damn.

    My guts is the cop is really working a case where his bosses want him on the inside of the wire to break the case open. So he gets busted in a public way, a few weeks /months later he is stripped of his job and gets a 5month sentence, and just like that, he is in.

    Yes, I freely admit to trying some of the stuff Peace Warrior shipped me. It's great! :)

    Fortunately, I've been browsing the forum and understand:

    Glad you're buzzed---I was going to call EMS to deal with the stroke you were having. Is all this part of your campaign strategy? It's what---a little before 10:00 AM where you're at?

    My guess is that it's not unlike other cases where police arrest the people that are obviously involved in the crimes in a structure - e.g., police raid a home where drugs are being bagged in the living room but do not arrest all occupants until the investigation is completed.

    I would expect they will be questioning the people who were arrested to determine whether or not the detective was involved and, if so, what his level of involvement was so that the DA can file the appropriate charges against him (if the evidence supports that he committed a crime).

    Just because someone is not immediately arrested, it does not mean they will not be later charged and arrested. Just ask Mr. Zimmerman.

    Cops socializing with known felons on their off time seems like a red flag to me.

    So you see a major media push on this?
     
  17. This is like when I talk with Aussies. I understand each and every word they're saying but when I put the words together in a sentence, I have no clue what they're talking about! :rofl:


    Or to paraphrase that cop movie with the black guy and the asian guy: "DO-YOU-UNDERSTAND-THE-WORDS-THAT-ARE-COMING-OUT-OF-MY... KEYBOARD?"

    clearly they are hoping the ransom still gets paid...there really can't be any other logical reason
     
  19. I understood this as:

    "Have you ever not seen cops when they aren't?"

    Which raises the question: "Aren't" what? Aren't on duty? Or aren't surrounded by criminals??

    :headscratch:

    I recall movied in 80s. Two crooks get caught (together) so they go to trial (together) same lawyer, same sentence in same prison so they wind up in same cell for 15+ yrs. Both get parole and condition of parole? "they can NOT associate with each other"
