Behind the Blue Wall
This is the true story of
NYPD police officer Kenneth Eurell.
www.angelfire.com/ny2/bluewall/main.html?police

On May 6 1992 six New York city police officers and one retired NY police officer(Kenneth Eurell) were arrested in a five month undercover drug operation.

The Suffolk county police dept. tapped the phone of a low level street dealer and soon found out that NYC police officers were involved in a multi-level drug operation.

Suffolk county in cooperation with the NYPD internal affairs unit arrested all of the officers involved and 49 civilians. The probe which lasted five months included undercover drug buys and electronic surveillance. Twenty-five vehicles were seized also seized was an undisclosed amount of cash and drugs.

The cops acted as venture capitalists and pooled their money to buy cocaine from known Brooklyn drug dealers for resale in Suffolk county.

According to unknowing Suffolk authorities the cops made purchases that amounted to four ounces at a time. Eurells admitted involvement to the US Attorneys office Southern District (which he later cooperated along with the DEA and Internal Affairs Department in an ongoing undercover probe of his former partner Michael Dowd and Colombian drug dealers) were purchases of up to one kilo.

Investigators were stunned when Eurell explained how they were protecting and assisting narcotics traffickers for weekly payoffs of $10,000.00.


To the left you can read the true story of one of the key players in the New York police departments biggest scandles ever.

1. Composition of the NYPD

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is the largest police force in the USA, with more than 38,000 serving officers at the end of 1995. The department is divided into 76 precincts covering the five boroughs of New York City (NYC): Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island. In the spring of 1995 the NYC Housing Authority Police Department and the NYC Transit Police Department (comprising a total of 7,000 officers) were merged with the NYPD.

2 Inquiries into the NYPD

Since its creation in the last century, the NYPD has suffered from a series of corruption scandals, running in approximately 20-year cycles, followed by investigations and periods of reform. A major inquiry conducted by the Knapp Commission in 1972 found institutionalized corruption throughout the department, mainly involving officers taking bribes to allow gamblers, prostitutes and others to avoid arrest. A number of reforms followed, including reorganization of the department's Internal Affairs Division (IAD), and the creation of the post of a State Special Prosecutor to prosecute police officers for corruption. This post, which operated independently of the local prosecutors (district attorneys), was dissolved in 1990.
However, new allegations of corruption surfaced in 1992 when six NYC police officers were arrested on drugs charges by the Suffolk County Police Department, and questions were raised as to how they managed to avoid detection for so long. The renewed scandal led to the appointment of the Mollen Commission of Inquiry in July 1992 by the then-mayor of New York City, David N. Dinkins.In its report published in July 1994, the Mollen Commission found serious corruption among patrol officers in several of the city's high crime precincts which, though no longer as pervasive as the bribery uncovered by the Knapp Commission, was of a far more serious nature. The corruption included groups of officers protecting and assisting narcotics traffickers; conducting unlawful searches and seizures; committing perjury and falsifying records; and engaging directly in drug trafficking and robberies. The Commission found that the department from the top downwards had failed to monitor or adequately investigate officers guilty of abuses and that senior officers practised a deliberate “blindness” to corruption, with IAD investigations serving to minimize rather than expose corruption. It also found that corrupt officers were able to operate with impunity in certain areas largely because of a “code of silence” in which even honest officers were unwilling, or afraid, to incriminate their colleagues. The code of silence, the Commission found, was particularly powerful in crime-ridden precincts where fear and alienation from the local community had bred an “Us versus Them” mentality and officers depended upon each other for support. The report cited examples where officers who had tried to report or investigate police misconduct had suffered from hostility, lack of cooperation and in some cases reprisals.

The Police Department has taken steps to address the problem of corruption and other misconduct since the Mollen inquiry, a process which began while the Commission was still sitting. During the past two years dozens of officers - the largest group from the 30th Precinct in Harlem - have been arrested on charges including perjury, extortion and narcotics trafficking. There have also been internal reforms within the department in line with the Mollen Commission's recommendations. These have included an overhaul of the IAD and its field units into a centralized Internal Affairs Bureau (IAB); new procedures for monitoring officers for corruption and brutality and changes in recruitment and training policy.
The Mollen Commission recommended that the Police Department should retain primary responsibility for investigating corruption within the force. However, one of its central recommendations was the creation of a permanent oversight agency, independent of the department, which would perform continuous assessments of the NYPD's own anti-corruption measures and, where necessary, conduct its own investigations. This proposal has not been implemented and is the subject of dispute between present Mayor Rudolf W.Guiliani and the City Council. The City Council passed a bill setting up an independent to monitor and investigate corruption along the lines recommended by Mollen, but this was vetoed by the mayor who established his own panel by executive order. Unlike the council's proposal, the mayor's panel has no independent powers to investigate police corruption.

Drug dealing
Once Dowd entered the farm he continued to collect payments directly from Diaz on an inconsistent basis. He told Eurell payments had stopped. This was in attempt to have Eurell sell cocaine. Eurell on one occasion purchased one ounce from a 125 gram transaction.
At this time two other officers and the retired officer Guvera were also doing off-duty raids as narcotic officers. Jeff Guzzo and Walter Yurkiw also worked in the 75pct. They were aware of Dowd and Eurells activities. They learned about this because Dowd felt secure in telling them since they also used cocaine. Yurkiw knowing Eurell was no longer making money since Dowd had left the 75 asked him to participate in the raid of a drug location. Eurell turned down the offer knowing it was time to stop before it was too late.
That night Guvera, Guzzo and Yurkiw robbed and kiddnapped a bodega owner who dealt drugs. The dealer/victim decided to report the incident. When he reported it to dectectives at the 75 Yurkiw was reporting for work. Yurkiw after the robbery went directly to work with his share of the money and drugs in his car. Yurkiw was arrested that night at the 75. Guvera was arrested within a week and Guzzo in two weeks. All three were charged with robbery and kiddnapping. Guvera was in on alot of what Eurell and Dowd had done. Eurell had the feeling of going to work everyday thinking he was going to be arrested. Dowd by this time was out of the farm and working in the motor transport division. it did me good to get away from Mike, we didn't see each other for almost a year While they did speak, Eurell didn't see Dowd and was no longer involved in criminal activity, Dowd became a cocaine dealer.
Eurell turned around and went in the other direction. He was making about 4 arrests a month,and his overtime went way up. Slowly he was returned to work in an rmp and taken off foot posts. With 9 years on the job he was senior man on patrol in the 75. Everyone else with his time had gone off to a detail, a slower pct or made boss. It was at this time that an injury put Eurell on light desk duty. He was transferred to the applicant processing division. There he worked a security desk on steady 4pm to 12am shift. After 15 months there, a police pension medical review board approved a disability pension. He was than investigated and approved for a pension. If any wrong doing was found in his past the pension wouldn't have been approved. Either someone dropped the ball or they were unable to prove criminal activity.
When Eurell returned to the 75 to clear out his locker other cops came over wishing him the best, saying they wanted to get a minor injury and retire too. As a cop or firefighter disability is a good thing if the injury isn't to serious. Walking with a limp or not being able to hold and fire a gun is the end of a police officers career but if Eurell was back in construction with his father he (and any other city worker)would still have to work. Eurells next return to the 75 would not be a happy time.
Being at home all day retired might sound like a fun thing but, it took alot of getting used to. During the day his wife went back to work full time and Eurell took on the role of Mr. mom. Eurell would start finding any excuse to get out of the house at night. He would meet his friends from the 75 in any bar after a 4x12. Going to all the pct parties. He began to go out with his younger brother John again. Something he hadn't done since his marriage. He was even going to 73 gatherings because his cousin was an officer there. Last but not least he started seeing Dowd again.
Dowd by this time had been transferred to the 94 pct. His new partner Tommy Mascia went through the same routine with Dowd that Eurell did. Masica found himself without a partner(because his retired) and Dowd was soon in the rmp with him. Dowd was now telling Mascia what he had done with Eurell. Just as he told Eurell what he did in scooter 3. Mascia was soon involved in a mulitude of crimes with Dowd.
Eurell quickly found out that Dowd was still selling cocaine and making very good money at it. Eurell still wasn't interested in dealing but the prospect of making money stired up those old feelings. On patrol Dowd was robbing the dead, removing items from burglary scenes, had a kickback scam with a towing company and was picking up cocaine to sell. Dowd and Eurell discussed doing protection work for another drug organization. This was possible because Dowd was still in touch with Perez who was making cocaine transactions for him. Eurells cousin and his partner Phil Carlucci was willing but Perez didn't know any dealers in the 73. Eurell and Dowd than discussed what present 75 officers might be interested in such work. Four or five names were thrown back and forth. Their number one choice was working steady inside the station house so they considered the number 2 choice.
They trusted this officer because they were aware of his cocaine use. Dowd and Guzzo had used cocaine with this officer on a few ocassions. Eurell called and met with the officer at a Long Island bar after a 4x12. Eurell explained what was involved and what would be expected of the officer. He wouldn't have to meet anyone but Eurell. Eurell said he and Dowd would pay him $1,000.00 a week. The officer was more than willing to work for them. Dowd was to set it up with Perez. After a month went by Eurell asked Dowd what was going on and Dowd had said they were still working on it. Eurell didn't push the subject when he didn't hear from Dowd for a while. its possible Mike cut me out,I didn't pursue it because my father in-law had passed away and left us a large sum of money Between the inheritance,his pension,his wife working full time and a rental income Eurell was living well and didn't push for the scam.
Eurells downfall came when he started going to a number of Bayshore bars and became good friends with people who were harmless weekend cocaine users. At the same time Eurells cousin came to him with his own scam. The cousins partner in the 73 Carlucci use to deal cocaine before becoming a cop and wanted to start up again but needed a supplier. Eurells cousin and Carlucci wanted to know if Eurell would be interested in pooling together some money with them. Eurell would be required to make the connection with Dowd for the cocaine give it to his cousin, who would give it to Carlucci. Carlucci would than make all the sales and they would split the profits 3 ways. Eurell thought this sounded great he wouldn't have to lift a finger and he would be making a few dollars. Dowd loved that Eurell came to him for cocaine. This allowed Dowd to purchase a higher quanity for a lower price. Dowd was more than happy to drop off the cocaine on his way home from Brooklyn.
At some point Eurell started to cut the cocaine intended for Carluccis customers and began selling it to his friends in Bayshore. Eurell was making twice the sales on the same buy. Once to Carlucci and than to his Bayshore friends. Eurell started to get a reputation in Bayshore as a dealer. He gave his customers credit and free cocaine on their birthdays which was unheard of. His customer base quickly grew. He now went from being partners with his cousin and Carlucci to being partners with Dowd. The cousin now dropped out of the loop and Carlucci was Eurells customer.
Many times cocaine wasn't available to Dowd while he was working. So on Dowds days off Eurell would go into Brooklyn with him. Dowd had a falling out with Perez over money so the cocaine was being bought from a Dominican named Ray. The routine was always the same beep Ray to make sure he had the required amount on hand. The money would be dropped off at one location and Dowd and Eurell would pick it up from Ray at another location. The amount of cocaine was from anywhere between a big 8 (125 grams) to a kilo (1000 grams). Eurell and Dowd would divide the cocaine and than make some deliveries. They were partners in the buys but they both had their own customers for sales.
One night after a 4x12 Dowd was meeting Eurell with a delivery. He showed up with his partner Mascia. They were driving Mascia's new Corvette. Up until that point no one from the police department knew what Eurell was involved in (except his cousin and his partner) Eurell and Dowd began to argue about letting other people know what was going on as they had in the past. Eurell stated "who the f**k is that?" Dowd said "hes my partner, you think he doesn't know what we did?" Dowd just brushed it off "don't worry about it". Eurell hated the idea that now someone else knows but, there was nothing he could do about it.
One of Eurells Bayshore friends/customers Patty Patwell introduced Harry Vahjen a low level dealer to Eurell. Vahjean wanted to be a big player. Eurell made a major mistake with Vahjen he became friends with him.I should have kept Harry strickly as a customer Vahjen was young (21) and had a lot of learning to do about being discreet. Vahjen introduced other dealers to Eurell. With so many customers Eurell would sometimes run dry of cocaine early on a Friday night. With Dowd in Brooklyn not coming to Bayshore until 1 or 2 am with a fresh supply. This forced Eurell to find suppliers on Long Island to fill the void. The first buy on Long Island was for a big 8 (125 grams). The buy went fine, Vahjen drove Eurell and they stopped at a bar on the way home. Eurell explained to Vahjen this was for one beer because they had the coke in the trunk. After his beer Eurell went out to the car to find Vahjen and 3 others in the car partying. "Yo, get these f**king losers out of the car!(Eurell had a habit of calling everyone Loser. This is why suffolk county came up with "operation loser") How stupid can you be? Just what I need the cops to see you four assholes than search the trunk and find a big 8! Take me home we're f**king through!" After Vahjen apoligized a hundred times, a month later Eurell and Vahjen started to do business again.instead of sticking with my instincts, knowing it was time to call it quits, instead of thinking with my head I let f**king greed take over.

Out of control
All this time Eurell and Dowd were still working for the Diaz organization. One of the ways they helped the drug trafficking was to observe the "spots" and make specific recommendations as to how to avoid police scrutiny. Subsequently Eurell and Dowd found new locations from which the Diaz organization would sell its cocaine. For example, following arrests at one of the organization's location, Eurell and Dowd located a new storefront, which the Diaz organization acquired for $60,000.00 and then used to continue its sales in cocaine. After more problems Eurell and Dowd advised Diaz to move his business to a location controlled by Perez, where the organization continued its cocaine sales once more.
Adam Diaz asked Eurell and Dowd to assist the organization further by disrupting the drug business of a competitor located nearby. Once again they turned to Dowds former partners to assist them. Along with Guvera and Spenser, Dowds brother Robert(who was a police officer in the 105 pct) and childhood friend Marcello went along on the planned raid. While Eurell and Dowd waited outside the location watching the back, the other four entered showed badges and pretended they were conducting a drug raid. After "arresting" the two dealers inside the four removed the drugs and money. The six divided $94,000.00 and gave 4 kilos of cocaine to Diaz.
Dowd and Eurell continued to conduct "hits" on their own. Eurell was in court when Dowd was guarding a prisoner in the hospital. This was a female prisoner so Dowd smooth talks her and finds out she was arrested when detectives doing a door to door search for a missing person stumbled upon her apartment after a recent drug delivery. Everyone in the apartment was arrested. The prisoner ends up telling Dowd the detectives missed all the money which was hidden in a bathroom ceiling tile.
The next tour which was a midnight tour for Eurell and Dowd they planned on going to the apartment and removing the cash along with the help of Guvera. While at the apartment other residents called 911 to report a break in at the location. Radio gives the call out to the sector concerned and Eurell states "we're close by central we'll backup." In a minute or two Eurell again gets on the radio and says "we're 84 central, slow the other unit down, do you have any further information." (84 means on the scene) There was only $15,000.00 but it was worth the few minutes work to them.
There were other times when they missed the money. During a fire at a first floor apartment that started in a kitchen, Dowd told Eurell "theres money here". Mike could have been a supercop if he did the right things After the fire was placed out by the fire department who were later accused of stealing jewelery. Dowd and Eurell were waiting to secure the location or for the owner to return to the scene. The kitchen was destroyed and Eurell was complaining about the smoke and not being able to breath. Dowd unwillingly agreed to wait outside. The owner shows up and Dowd asks do you have any money or valuebles that you want to remove. The owner reluctantly says "my sons have some money in the kitchen." Dowd flashed Eurell a look that could kill. The owner removes 4 coffee containers filled with hundred dollar bills. They missed about $50,000.00. Dowd was sick, for the remainder of the day he mocked Eurell saying "the smoke,the smoke I can't breathe."
There was another time Eurell and Dowd went to a call of drug sales with two other units. There was about $5,000.00 rolled up into a crack in the wall. Dowd tried the old why don't you leave it routine so you don't have to waste time vouchering it. Everyone agreed, two minutes later when Eurell looked it was gone someone pocketed it.
At this time Dowd began to use the cocaine that he planned to sell. Mike became totally out of control when he started using and I was blinded by my greed of money At the opening of Perezs new radio shop(thanks to the money paid to him by Eurell and Dowd) Dowd thanks to his cocaine high attitude was involved in a fight and was stabbed. Eurell and Robert Dowd rushed Dowd to the local hospital where Eurell and Dowd were friendly with the ER staff and Dowd was treated with no records. Eurell and Robert Dowd after dropping Dowd off returned to the scene and beat the stabber into the ground. On another occassion Dowds attitude turned a Nassau county bar into a brawl where Eurell was hit in the head with a glass pitcher causing 12 stitches. The money and cocaine blinded them so much it was only a matter of time before it fell apart. Dowd is selling and using drugs on the side,not on the side from being a cop but on the side from what he did with Eurell. He also bought a brand new corvette convertible and started parking it in the bosses spots at the 75. Even if the bosses were oblivious before they had to be aware of something now. The cocaine and corvette were major friction between Eurell and Dowd. Dowd appeared to take comfort in the more people that know the better. Whereas Eurell didn't want anyone to know what they were doing.
One tour Eurell and Dowd responded to a radio run of shots fired. They recognized the address as a primary trafficking spot of the Diaz organization. They were the first to arrive on the scene and spoke to the Diaz worker (dea informant) who told them that he had been robbed at gunpoint of multiple kilograms of cocaine by a man named Franklin. Eurell knew the name as a local stickup man of drug dealers. Dowd and Eurell looked for Franklin finding him three days later. The plan was to turn Franklin over to the Diaz organization. They stopped Franklin in his car and Dowd gave Franklin numerous automobile summons which he never filed with the police department. The purpose was to get Franklins verified address. Franklin has not been heard from since. He is carried today as an active missing persons case. The Diaz organization's business was slowed by the robbery and the subsequent arrest of the Diaz worker and other key figures within the organization. During this time payments to Eurell and Dowd became erratic in both frequency and in amount.
They spent money as fast as it came in, they were out every night bought clothes furniture and gambled. There were limo trips to Atlantic City. When they went to restaurants the $400 to $500 bills were paid with fives and tens. On precient bus trips to Atlantic City where most officers would bring $200.00 Eurell and Dowd would bring $5,000.00 each. Did any bosses catch on? If they did they never said anything.
Dowd entered himself into the alcohol program(the farm) on the advice of the PBA. This left Eurell open to abuse from the bosses. He went from a steady sector to guarding EDPs,sitting on DOAs and walking footposts on mid-nights.
Before they split up Dowd and Eurell did do police work along with their scamming. In fact they handled more jobs than other units because they were always "looking". Not for arrest but for drugs and money. They probably took more guns off the street than the rest of their squad, unfortunatly they sent the guns back onto the street. They were both extremely experienced and never needed to tie up bosses with questions.(which also allowed them freedom) They were in great shape physically(mental stability is something else) and never called for backup from other units. They were usually the first to arrive when others called for backup.
One occassion three stickup men robbed a drug spot and when leaving the location shot an undercover transit cop. His partners called a 10-13(officer needs assistance) arriving first on the scene and under fire Eurell and Dowd carried the officer to their rmp and removed him to the hospital. Unfortunatly the officer was dead before he even hit the ground. When Eurell and Dowd returned to the scene the stickup men were pinned down. Bosses and the press were everywhere. Instead of sending Eurell and Dowd to the station house to be questioned by the detectives or the hospital to see if they needed treatment (mentally or physically) because they were covered in blood. The bosses were more concerned why they weren't wearing their hats. They were ordered to leave the scene and go pickup other jobs that were coming in. It turned out Eurell and Dowd knew who the shooters were through their contacts in the drug trade. They never were given the chance to give this information to the detectives.
It seemed Eurell and Dowd got along better with the street element than other officers. While taking a report for a automobile accident. People started yelling there was a man with a gun down the block.Thank goodness we were both experienced because I know other cops would have shot this guy. Other people have been shot for far less in recent years As they drive up to the scene sure enough theres a male hispanic in the middle of the street pointing a automatic handgun at two male blacks. Eurell and Dowd point their guns at the male hispanic. Hes standing there with his gun pointed at the two male blacks and not saying a word. The two male blacks are yelling at Eurell and Dowd "shoot him! shoot him! hes got a gun!" Eurell and Dowd are yelling "Don't move! drop the f**king gun! Drop the gun! Finally after what seemed like an eternity the man with the gun doesn't drop the gun like hes ordered but moves placing the gun at his side and reaching behind his back with his other hand. we would have been justified killing this guy but we held off a second more Suddenly the gunman pulls out a black shield case and says hes an undercover narcotics officer! imagine how it would have looked now if we shot a narcotics cop. The two male blacks knew they were in trouble now. The undercover officer witnessed them making a drug buy but was waiting for his backup so he didn't have to reveal his idenity. The backup team finally arrived as Eurell and Dowd were holding down the suspects. The undercover didn't even thank Eurell or Dowd for not shooting him or the least for capturing his perps. About two months later while in the neighborhood off-duty a male black approached Eurell and asked if he remembered him. When Eurell said that he didn't the male placed his hand around his own neck which is how Eurell took down the suspect for the undercover. "Do you remember me now?" Of course Eurell than remembered him. "You and your partner are alright. That asshole cop wanted to kill us. I just want to thank you." They had neighborhood perps thanking them and their own equal ignored them.

Previous Story: Kerik indicted on federal corruption charges

Former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik surrendered to the FBI this morning to face a 16-count federal indictment charging him with everything from stealing from taxpayers to lying to the White House.

The indictment, unsealed this morning in a White Plains federal court, is likely to become a campaign liability for his mentor and close pal, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani has acknowledged making a mistake in pushing Kerik’s nomination for Homeland Security director, but has stood by the 52-year-old Kerik's performance as head of corrections and police.

Kerik is charged with conspiracy, tax fraud, making false statements and depriving the city of his honest services while he was Giuliani’s corrections commissioner and top cop.

The one-time nominee to be President Bush’s Homeland Security czar faces charges that carry a top prison sentence of 142 years, if convicted. He also faces more than $4 million and fines, and would have to repay $255,000 in free rent he got from a Manhattan developer.

Kerik is charged with trying to convince city investigators that a New Jersey contractor secretly renovating his Bronx apartment was free of mob ties.

He also faces multiple allegations of tax fraud, including failing to report those renovations as income, hiding $75,000 in income from his book, “The Lost Son, and to taking a bogus $80,000 charitable donation.

Kerik is scheduled to be arraigned later today. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia was scheduled to have a press conference at 11:30 a.m.

NYPD Corruption Cases Surged in 2006
http://www.officer.com/web/online/Internal-Affairs-News/NYPD-Corruption-Cases-Surged-in-2006/5476
Posted: Monday, October 22, 2007

The number of NYPD cops using drugs, stealing property - even from the dead - and committing other acts of corruption, including extorting sex from female suspects, spiked sharply last year, according to a confidential NYPD report.

The astonishing wrongdoing in cluded everything from cops solicit ing sex in exchange for overlooking crimes to stealing credit cards from the homes of dead people to hiring a hit man to commit murder.

The tawdry tales include stories of cops not only betraying their badges, but also their brother and sister officers in blue.

In one case, two cops allegedly disclosed the identity of an undercover officer who came into a restaurant while they were bartering for sex with a woman they had once arrested.

In another case, two Manhattan cops were caught looting money from a precinct house's kitty that included cash collected from T-shirt sales for the cancer-stricken daughter of yet another cop.

"It was ugly," a source said.

In yet another incident, a cop teamed up with a "police impersonation" robbery ring after she could not find another corrupt cop to work with the gang.

And then there was an officer who hung out with drug dealers who also made "friendly" bets on sports events - with the payoff in marijuana.

The revelations contained in the NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau 2006 Annual Report - obtained by The Post - include:
Arrests of New York's Finest rose 25 percent in 2006 over the previous year, from 91 to 114.
The number of cops caught using drugs last year jumped 138 percent, from eight incidents the previous year to 19, including one cop using PCP (phencyclidine), and another shooting steroids into his butt.
Fraud allegations involving insurance, credit card and welfare swindles rose 85 percent to 50 complaints from 27 the previous year.
The number of cops stripped of their guns and badges and placed on modified duty jumped 55 percent, from 137 to 212, but suspensions fell 11 percent from 159 to 142.
The Post pieced together the accounts using sources, court records and district attorneys' offices, along with the tightly guarded annual IAB study.

For its part, the NYPD insisted The Post submit in writing its requests for specific case information and names of fired or disciplined cops, which the newspaper did on Aug. 14.

Since then, follow-up reminders, in person and via e-mail, have fallen on deaf ears.

The IAB states that cops accused of stealing property made up 34 percent of the 1,057 corruption cases launched last year - with 357 thefts reported, an 8.5 percent jump over the previous year's 329 cases.

Among them were two cops at a Manhattan precinct who handled thousands of dollars collected from T-shirt sales and vending-machine proceeds for their stationhouse "club."

Investigators determined the duo skimmed about $4,000 from the club's bank account, purchasing tires for their cars, paying Internet hookup fees and cellphone bills.

Adding insult to injury, the sources said, some of the stolen cash was raised to defray medical costs incurred by the cancer-stricken daughter of an NYPD sergeant.

The duo was convicted of grand larceny at a departmental trial and fired. The DA declined to prosecute, primarily because bank records had been destroyed, sources said.

There's also Mammianne Zadja, who reportedly tried to steal from her own family, changing the deed to her father's home and removing her brother's name from it.

The 32-year-old initially obtained power of attorney for her healthy father by filing phony medical papers showing he had Alzheimer's, court papers alleged.

She then axed her brother from the deed and applied for a second mortgage on the house.

The cop was caught after a bank loan officer became suspicious when he held a conference call with Zadja and her "father," who turned out to be someone posing as her dad.

She was fired, but at the family's request, the Staten Island DA did not press charges.

Perhaps the most ghoulish thievery involved Officer Eduardo Saillant, 38, of the 60th Precinct, who swiped credit cards from the homes of four dead people last year.

Saillant was accused of responding to 911 calls involving people who died of natural causes and taking their cards and using them at Home Depot hardware stores in New York and New Jersey and to buy gasoline for his car.

Saillant, a divorced father of two, resigned from the NYPD. His criminal case is pending, according to Brooklyn DA Joe Hynes.

The most notorious crime involved the widely reported conviction of police recruit Kabeer Din, 22 who tried to hire a hit man for $3,000 to assassinate his Suffolk, L.I., girlfriend.

But the worst betrayal might involve cops allegedly in the process of extorting sex from a woman.

Two officers came under investigation after a woman arrested in a drug roundup claimed they offered her drugs for sex.

IAB zeroed in on the cops, listening in on a call in which one cop was heard offering marijuana for sexual favors. The cop, his partner and the woman then met in a popular Manhattan eatery, El Malacon on Broadway and 175th Street, where the officers bragged about their coziness with drugs.

The rendezvous became even more untoward when an undercover cop walked in and one cop quickly gave up his identity, "warning her to be careful since he works in the area," according to the report.

The officer who ratted out the undercover resigned the force. The other cop was suspended, but remains a cop.

In The Bronx, a veteran NYPD detective was found guilty of getting a woman who was implicated in an identity-theft case to perform oral sex on him.

Detective Dominic Calvanico initially insisted the woman sign a confession and cooperate, according to the report.

He then told her that if she would "take care of him" - engage in sexual activity - he would "talk to the DA and make the case go away," according to the report.

"Fearful of being arrested and having just started a new job [at a hospital], the victim met the detective in her car, where she performed oral sex on him," the report says.

She spit his sperm into a tissue, which was thrown into the center console. Afterward, she alerted Internal Affairs and the Bronx DA.

IAB later retrieved the detective's investigative case folder, where they found the woman's written confession, but no mention of it in the file.

The detective, who claimed the sex was consensual, was found guilty at his NYPD trial of bribe receiving, coercion, associating with a criminal and filing false statements.

In an extraordinary plea deal worked out among the NYPD, the DA's office and his union, Calvanico - a cop for 19 years and 11 months - agreed to resign and surrender a portion of his pension to avoid criminal charges.

Ex-Staten Island NYPD commander reassigned following corruption probe
by Staten Island Advance
http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2008/01/staten_island_detective_reassi.html
Tuesday January 22, 2008, 1:35 PM

A former Staten Island precinct commander has been reassigned, along with more than a dozen other cops, in the wake of charges that members of the NYPD Narcotics Division accepted drugs, sex and money from drug dealers, several law enforcement sources confirmed today.

Inspector James O'Connell, former head of the North Shore's 120th Precinct, was transferred from his current position as commander of Brooklyn Narcotics South, in light of allegations that several of his officers stole drugs to pay informants, or traded the drugs for sex with them and with prostitutes, according to the sources, and several published reports today.

It is unclear what role O'Connell had in the scandal.

Several sources speculated that he and Narcotics Division head Deputy Chief James O'Neill were transferred for lack of oversight. O'Neill was temporarily replaced with Deputy Chief Joseph Reznick, an NYPD spokesman confirmed.

The broad, 5-month investigation into the corrupt culture in Narcotics first made headlines in December with the arrest of Det. Sean Johnstone, a Tottenville resident and former officer in the 122nd Precinct. Johnstone, 34, who is assigned to Brooklyn South Narcotics, was taped on his own wire tap allegedly bragging about stealing seized cocaine. He was charged with official misconduct, falsifying business records and filing a fake document.

O'Connell, a Brooklyn native and 23-year NYPD veteran, was promoted to commander of the 120th Precinct in July 2000.

His first assignment here was as operations coordinator for Borough Command in 1997, and then, in 1998, he led the Staten Island Tracer Unit. After a stint in Brooklyn, he returned to the Island in 1999 as the commander of the Task Force.

"Culture of corruption" in Bloomberg's mayors' group?
http://armsandthelaw.com/archives/2007/09/third_power_rep.php
Posted by David Hardy · 6 September 2007 09:44 AM

Third Power reports that Mayor Samuel Rivera of Passiac NJ, a member of Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns, has been arrested on federal corruption charges.

He joins Frank Melton, of Jackson MS, another of the Mayor's group, who plead to weapons infractions after he and his bodyguards broke into a house.

Has Bloomberg's mayors group created a culture of corruption? Perhaps someone should demand their resignations!

Add to that a plea to tax evasion and mail fraud by a Brady Campaign LEO, with another such LEO in in hot water over accepting gifts, and certainly sounds as if that's occurring. All this is in the last twelve months, too.

Allegations Rock NYPD Corruption Probe
Investigator On Mayor's Independent Commission Claims Wrongful Termination For Asking Certain Questions

 New questions have surfaced about police
corruption and whether or not complaints are really being investigated by the city's independent commission.

CBS 2 HD spoke exclusively with an investigating attorney who says they're not.

Willa Bernstein worked for Mayor Michael Bloomberg's commission to combat police corruption. But after six months she was out of a job. Fired, she says, because police brass wanted her silence.

"I started asking questions and I was terminated," Bernstein said.

Those are chilling words coming from a woman who was hired to ask questions, questions about police corruption and tactics.

"The questions didn't please the executives at the Police Department and I was fired without notice," Bernstein said.

Bernstein, along with several others, was asked to investigate questionable incidents in the NYPD. She claims police brass didn't like her asking questions about a case where a teen suspect was tasered twice. They said she was anti-cop after she compared it to the Abner Louima police brutality case.

"I think that's an extremely unfair label," Bernstein said. "I think it's quite the opposite. I in fact took this job because I have enormous admiration for the Police Department."

Even though this commission is made up of civilians, CBS 2 HD has learned that the NYPD internal affairs chief actually spoke to Bernstein's boss about her alleged anti-police comments. City documents we obtained indicate what her boss did next.

In a memo about the termination, commission executive director Marnie Blit wrote:

"It was after this incident that I started preparing to terminate Willa because she insulted IAB and destroyed any credibility she might have when criticizing their cases."

Bernstein took issue with that statement.

"I was handed files, asked to review them. I did that in good faith and was told after the fact that certain types of cases would not be looked at," she said.

The most troubling allegation of all is Bernstein's claim that this commission can only investigate classic corruption cases and not use of force by officers. Bernstein alleges the NYPD made a deal with the commission.

"I was shocked. I felt again betrayed that I hadn't been told in the beginning that the jurisdiction was limited. I might have reconsidered taking the job," Bernstein said.

Mayor Bloomberg said he will look into Bernstein's charges.

"If there is an allegation, we take them all very seriously and I think we do a good job," Bloomberg said. "Can I promise you that nothing slips through the cracks? No, I can't promise you that."

Other lawmakers are stunned.

"The Police Department should not have any say over who the investigators are investigating it, so, again, this is a troubling allegation. There is an obvious conflict here," NYC Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. said.

Councilman Vallone says he intends to hold hearings in the fall to see if the agency and the Civilian Complaint Review Board should have subpoena power. Meanwhile, Michael Armstrong, chairman of the commission, said he stands behind the decision to terminate Bernstein.

Bloomberg: N.Y. Too Corrupt to Function Without Illegals
http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=15984
by  Mac Johnson
07/11/2006



Michael Bloomberg is the Barney Fife who ended up in charge of New York City when the lovable Sheriff Giuliani retired. And last week, he went and shot off his one bullet during a Senate hearing on amnesty for illegal aliens. Essentially, he said that the Big Apple is rotten to the core. So rotten, in fact, that if we ever began seriously enforcing our immigration laws, the city that claims to be America’s greatest would collapse and die.

I’m not sure what was more ridiculous, Barney Bloomberg’s Chicken Little moment in defense of the corrupt underground economy, or just the fact that the Senate was staging hearings on amnesty at all. For the Senate to hold hearings now, after they’ve already passed the most sweeping amnesty bill in U.S. history, is a little like a court, after pronouncing the verdict, deciding to have a little trial --you know, just so the peasants stop whining about the fix being in.

Regarding the estimated 500,000 illegal aliens that have stowed away inside the city that never checks immigration status, Mayor Fife stated that:

"Although they broke the law by illegally crossing our borders ... our city's economy would be a shell of itself had they not, and it would collapse if they were deported.”  Adding ominously, "The same holds true for the nation."

Oh, thank God, they got here just in time. If they hadn’t been willing to break the law, who knows what horrors could have befallen the poor helpless United States? I mean, Bloomberg himself might have had to eat buffet style for lack of little foreign servants to wait upon him. And only Allah knows who might drive the cabs (or the Ryder trucks).

As far as I know, only one part of New York City has ever actually “collapsed,” and seeing as several of the 19 hijackers involved in making that happen were illegal aliens, it was not a lack of “undocumented workers” that caused the collapse.

Since Deputy Bloomberg seems incapable of considering anything other than economics in the immigration debate, let’s examine a few numbers, just to estimate what a repeat of a large terrorist attack could cost New York City. According to a report commissioned by the New York Senate after 9/11, the attacks of that day were estimated to cost New York $105 billion dollars in damage, lost taxes, lost jobs and lost businesses. That works out to $210,000 for every illegal alien in New York City. At that rate, I don’t know how much more cheap labor we can afford. That would buy a lot of legal busboys, Barney.

The al Qaeda operatives who were foiled in their plot to blow up New York’s subway tunnels last week must love the sort of institutionalized corruption that has taken hold within much of America’s ruling class -- a corruption that has fostered the “sanctuary city” policy of asking no questions, of ignoring the fake Social Security numbers, the fake IDs, and the illegal driver’s licenses. They must love the large community outside the law that will not co-operate with police, the supporting networks of human smugglers and forgers, and the cash-only, off-the-books jobs beyond the ability of the IRS, ICE or FBI to monitor.

What good is a “watch list” when the man on it lives in an apartment in someone else’s name, working for cash in a back room, among a community that hides all, in a city that tells its cops to ask no questions -- lest the price of hors d’oeuvres go up 3%?

But wait, there’s more! Mayor Fife also threw in this nugget regarding the ability of the United States to control its own destiny regarding illegal immigration:

"No wall or army can stop hundreds of thousands of people each year."


And that would be especially true if Bloomberg were in charge of the Army. That man has the sort of “can-do” spirit that New York needs in a mayor! If only Mayor Bloomberg had been in charge of stopping the Axis in World War II, those German classes I took in college might never have been necessary. Rudy Giuliani was “America’s Mayor.” Bloomberg seems set on being “Latin America’s Mayor.” Oh well, to each according to his abilities, I guess.

Lastly, I would like to address a moral issue inherent in Bloomberg’s statement that our immigration laws must not be enforced too vigorously for fear that it could hurt some businesses: Perhaps some businesses should be hurt by law enforcement -say, those that make their profits by breaking the law. And if an entire city is dependent upon such businesses, then perhaps it should be hurt too.

The illegal alien employer has no more right to have his profits protected from law enforcement than does the tax cheat, the thief, the con man, or the bribe giver. These things are illegal, and if you make your money by means of them, it is in society’s best interest to harm your business.

And if that means some cities are hurt more than others … so be it. The more honest ones will finally benefit from their honesty.

That Bloomin’ Blatherer Bloomberg
http://thisiscommonsense.com/2009/02/03/that-bloomin%e2%80%99-blatherer-bloomberg/
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, once a man of the people, claimed his billions immunized him from the pitfalls of politics-as-usual. Who could bribe him, right?

But it seems power seduces even without payola.

New Yorkers passed a two-term limit on city officials. But Bloomberg wants another term, and couldn’t be bothered taking the question to voters yet again. So he convinced the city council to water down the law so both he and they could run for a third term.

So, why did Bloomberg overthrow the voters’ decision? Not because he’s seduced by power. No. Because he’s so darned indispensable. In an economic downturn, the city needs a financial wizard like him to steer things.

Except this is the same maestro who dug New York’s current financial hole. The city is looking at a $7 billion budget deficit in a couple years if nothing changes. And according to a new report by the Citizens Budget Commission, the average cost of city employees has increased 63 percent since 2000. Average pay has jumped from $52,000 a year to $69,000. Then you have benefits, which ballooned from $13,000 a year to a whopping $38,000 a year.

Bloomberg can’t say no to unions, so taxpayers suffer. He can’t say no to a power grab, so democracy suffers.

Gee whiz, who but Bloomberg could give us all this suffering?

Coming in the Leadup to the Election
http://www.blockbloomberg.com/?tag=corruption
February 9th, 2009
No comments

More on why Michael Bloomberg is eminently unsuited to be reelected Mayor, including:
Why wanting to be an elected official in the US should count as a disqualification.
Why the superwealthy should be barred from holding elected office.
Why billionaire Bloomberg in particular should be barred.
His direct attack upon the Will of the People, the Voters, in subverting the twice voted term limits (done with the connivance of the equally self-serving City Council Speaker Christine Quinn).
Why, if he has the best interests of New York at heart, he would do better donating some of his vast fortune to the city and serving as a special economic and business advisor.
Bloomberg’s failed “Build and They Will Come” policy, with Dan Doctoroff, Bruce Ratner and others in the case of the Westside Stadium, Yankee Stadium, the 2012 Olympics, and the Atlantic Rail Yards, among others.
Bloomberg’s glaring failures on public safety, schools, infrastructure, healthcare, and housing.
His failures as a business “genius” who turned out to be just another money-grubbing Wall Street fat cat.
His real record as a business executive, including sexual harrassment of employees.
His militarization of New York City schools via Schools Chancellor Joel Klein and the NYPD.
His reprehensible hostility to fundamental American civil rights, guaranteed in the Constitution and under attack by conservatives for over 3 years, including the right to assemble and the right to speak.
His extension of the Giuliani program of using the NYPD as stormtroopers to enforce obedience.
His cozy ties with corrupt New York elite.
Bloomberg’s callous indifference to the common people (the “little people” to use his phrase), exemplified in the numerous construction accidents and the electrocution of 30-year-old Jodie Lane in the East Village in January, 2004.
Bloomberg’s support for American war crimes and other crimes around the world, including most recently the atrocities in Gaza.

IS MIKE BLOOMBERG REALLY CORRUPT?
http://www.mayorbrodeur.org/bloomberg.html
YOU BE THE JUDGE.
Lord Bloomberg not only doesn’t deserve to be re-elected, he doesn’t deserve to walk the streets a free man.
He has committed more crimes than I can even list, and below, you’ll see just how diverse his lawbreaking is.
I’m not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that he has stolen billions of dollars from you and given it to his crooked pals and if you doubt this, then ask Mike Bloomberg if he will debate me publicly so he can shoot down all of the facts.
(He will decline faster than Ken Lay of Enron.)

REMEMBER: when Mike first entered office, he did some good things (just as Mussolini made “the trains run on time”) but he rapidly got worse and worse and now he’s shockingly CORRUPT. (But the media won’t tell you most of it, because everyone wants to be friends with a billionaire.)   

HERE ARE JUST A HANDFUL OF EXAMPLES THAT SHOW HOW CORRUPT HE IS.
 
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

FACT: MIKE BLOOMBERG RIGGED THE JETS BID. (And he’s admitted it!)

(It’s basically what his pal Guy Velella went to jail for. He took bribes to rig contracts to steal more tax money from you to give to his pals, exactly as Bloomberg is doing.) (No wonder Bloomberg tried to help cover up Velella’s illegal release from Rikers at the hands of Giuliani cronies!) (Probably a coincidence that Giuliani and Velella and Bloomberg are very close pals, or that lots of Team Giuliani goons have since been convicted of crimes against the taxpayers, with plenty more on the way, such as SuperCriminal Bernie Kerik, whom Bloomberg desperately tried to keep on as Police Commissioner despite his numerous criminal scandals.)
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
FACT:  MIKE BLOOMBERG LIED OVER AND OVER WHILE TRYING TO STEAL OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS OF YOUR MONEY WITH THE JETS STADIUM SCANDAL

EX: he (and his lying spokespeople, Jennifer Falk, Ed Skyler, Bill Cunningham, Jordan Barowitz, et al) repeatedly said that MIDTOWN MANHATTAN REAL ESTATE… ON THE WATERFRONT(!!) was not worth much money---one of the most insane LIES in the history of LIES.
(Waterfront midtown Manhattan real estate is actually the MOST valuable real estate on Earth pretty much!!)

[NOTE: AND Bloomberg paid these liars $100,000 PLUS salaries with your tax dollars, to LIE to you!]

EX: The crooks at the MTA themselves said the property was worth at least $900,000,000 and yet Bloomberg tried to give it away for $800,000,000 LESS THAN THAT!!

And he did it all BEHIND CLOSED DOORS because he knew you’d be angry if you found out the truth. (Just as he did for all his other scams, like making Snapple the “official” drink of NYC and his leftover-Giuliani plans to have corporations take over our sidewalks furniture to promote themselves!)
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
FACT: MIKE BLOOMBERG VIOLATED FEDERAL LAW REPEATEDLY

…when he illegally arrested INNOCENT PEOPLE during the Republican National Convention and Critical Mass bike rides. (And it’s on video!)

            And he not only arrested innocent people, he ILLEGALLY detained them for as long as he could, and then got caught LYING about it! (EX: they said that they couldn’t “process” people fast enough because they weren’t “ready” for so many arrests, yet long before the RNC, they announced their plans for mass arrests!) (This is why Mike REFUSES to outlaw lies by politicians.) (And it’s why Mike is so EVASIVE and more.)

And as of this writing, Mike had already paid out almost $260,000 of YOUR dollars to pay off some of the people (and their legal fees) that HE HAD ILLEGALLY ARRESTED AND DETAINED!

In the end, YOU will pay millions in damages to settle lawsuits because Mike broke the law.

But YOU didn’t break the law! HE did, and Ray Kerik, er, Kelly did, and so ONLY the people who broke the law should be punished, but Lord Bloomberg did the exact opposite: he only punished innocent people and let the crooks who broke federal law get away scot-free!! (see below)

For this alone, Mike Bloomberg has to be brought to justice and has to reimburse you for tens of millions he stole from you during the RNC.

(Should I even talk about the millions he cost businesses, after he promised the RNC would benefit our economy? How the hell could businesses near Madison Square Garden prosper when their blocks were barricaded off by the NYPD??? It was just another of Bloombeg’s ridiculous LIES. And most Broadway theaters showed that their receipts DECLINED during the RNC thanks to Bloomberg’s police state! When I’m mayor, I am going to welcome any business to come in and show us their evidence, and I am going to force Mike Bloomberg to reimburse them for every penny they lost because of his illegal blockades on the street and more.)

(We are going to put an end to corrupt politics once and for all, by creating the first system of accountability in NYC’s 300 year history.)

(I’m also going to publicly grill all the FEDERAL prosecutors and make them explain why they IGNORED every violation of FEDERAL LAW by City Hall. I bet they have a real good excuse!)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

FACT:

MIKE NOT ONLY ARRESTED INNOCENT PEOPLE, BUT HE REFUSED TO ARREST REAL CRIMINALS INSTEAD!!

EX:

there is enough Probable Cause to arrest Bernie Kerik 50 times, yet Mike refuses to allow this crook to be arrested! (Instead, Mike tried to HIRE this supercriminal to head the NYPD!) (Lucky for us, Kerik felt that getting rich was more important than rebuilding NYC after 9/11! Whew! Close call!)


EX:

Remember the brick attacks in midtown Manhattan, and the homeless black men they arrested for these crimes? Well, in one of those attacks, the NYPD framed an INNOCENT MAN (who just happened to be black and poor!) named Bently Grant. He was almost convicted after “confessing” to the crime and being picked out of a “lineup” until it was discovered that the Virgin Megastore in Union Square had a surveillance video tape which showed Grant was nowhere near the scene of the crime when it happened!

They quietly set Grant free.

And the real violent criminal was never caught.

(And even if they had caught the real criminal, it would be impossible to convict him now, as the NYPD had already FRAMED the last guy who “confessed” and was picked out of a “lineup”, rendering the NYPD’s “evidence” worthless!! Just as the LAPD set OJ free with their lies and crimes, the NYPD has protected thousands of dangerous criminals. Ask me for details and challenge that crook Ray Kerik, er, Kelly to debate me in public. He’s scared to death of debating me because he knows I can prove he protects criminals and punishes innocent people instead.)

 AND WHAT DID RUDY BLOOMBERG DO ABOUT THESE CROOKED COPS WHO TRIED TO FRAME AN INNOCENT BLACK MAN?

 They promoted them!!

Surveillance Video Promises "NYPD Corruption At Its Best"
http://gothamist.com/2009/02/02/video_promises_nypd_corruption_at_i.php
Posted by Lynn in NYC Life on 02 2nd, 2009 | no responses

A YouTube video titled “NYPD corruption at its best,” depicts undercover NYPD officers stuffing cash in their pockets during a raid at embattled Staten Island bar “Beer Goggles” ( MySpace ). The surveillance tape was recorded back in November 2007 when cops busted the bar for promoting gambling; three employees were arrested but the charges were eventually dropped. In the video, (see below), the officers are shown smashing a poker video game, counting cash on the bar, and putting it into their pockets. The NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau investigated Sergeant William Lewis, a 24-year veteran, after the bar’s landlord accused
him of alerting Beer Goggles to the raid. After a five month investigation, he was suspended and charged with corruption last March. Several cops from the raiding party testified against Lewis, and his lawyers introduced the surveillance tape to impeach the credibility of the raiders’ testimony. But according to the Post , no “official determination has been made as to whether cops were simply doing their jobs,” when they pocketed the money. $700 of vouchered cash was later returned to bar owner Chris Shaffer.

Corrupt NYPD Cops Suspected of Robbing, Torturing Drug Dealers
http://gothamist.com/2008/10/13/two_nypd_cops_suspected_of_robbing.php
Explosive accusations are being leveled against two NYPD cops, one active and one retired, who allegedly participated in at least 100 robberies of drug dealers, netting more than 100 kilos of coke. The duo are part of a crew that's been named in federal indictments in Brooklyn. The Daily News reports that the cops would change the collar brass on their uniforms to disguise their precincts when they kidnapped drug dealers and took them to "remote areas," where they'd torture them to find out where they were hiding their cash and drugs, which the crew would later resell. Two defendants who worked with the unidentified officers "applied a pair of pliers to one victim's testicles, threatening to squeeze the pliers if the victim did not talk." U.S. Attorney Andrea Goldbarg last month promised additional charges and the arrest of the two cops, who, apparently, have not yet been taken into custody.

Bloomberg: Get Used To Surveillance In Big Cities
http://wcbstv.com/topstories/bloomberg.surveillance.cameras.2.312728.html


LONDON (AP) ― Residents of big cities like New York and London must accept that they are under constant watch by video cameras, and opposition to the use of high-tech surveillance to catch criminals and terrorists is ridiculous, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday.
   
Bloomberg, holding talks with his London counterpart, Ken Livingstone, said measures such as London's "ring of steel" -- a network of closed-circuit cameras that monitors the city center-- were a necessary protection in a dangerous world.
   
"In this day and age, if you think that cameras aren't watching you all the time, you are very naive," Bloomberg told reporters at London's City Hall.
   
"We are under surveillance all the time" from cameras in shops and office buildings, "and in London they have multiple cameras on every bus and in every subway car," he added.
   
"We live in a dangerous world, and people want to have security cameras."
   
Bloomberg visited a London police station to view the ring of steel, a system of cameras and road barriers introduced after Irish Republican Army bombings in the 1990s to protect the city's central business district.
   
The New York mayor watched cars driving into the financial core on banks of screens at City of London police headquarters. Every vehicle entering the business district, known as the City, is photographed and has its license plate recorded by one of hundreds of cameras.
   
London has one of the world's highest concentrations of surveillance cameras. An estimated 4 million CCTV cameras operate in Britain, and some civil liberties campaigners have warned the country is becoming a "surveillance state."
   
New York has far fewer, but the number is growing. Authorities hope to implement a version of the ring of steel for lower Manhattan, featuring surveillance cameras as well as barriers that could automatically block streets.
   
"It's ridiculous, people who object to using technology," Bloomberg said during a meeting with the City's head of counterterrorism, Chief Superintendent Alex Robertson.
   
Bloomberg said New York lagged behind London in the number of cameras on trains and buses.
   
"We are way behind, and we really do have to catch up," he said.
   
"There are some people who don't like cameras," Bloomberg acknowledged, "but the alternative is so much worse."
   
Bloomberg, on a European trip focusing on environmental issues as well as security, also said he was confident of introducing a road-pricing scheme modeled on London's traffic-busting congestion charge to New York.
   
The toll on entering the city center by car was introduced by Livingstone in 2003 and has been credited with cutting traffic gridlock and increasing the number of bus and bicycle journeys.
   
Bloomberg must convince both New York's city council and the state legislature to back his plan, which calls for charging $8 to drive a car into Manhattan south of 86th Street on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
 
A commission is studying Bloomberg's plan and other ways to reduce the city's traffic and is due to make a recommendation by the end of January.
   
The two mayors arrived at London's riverfront City Hall on Monday after a ride on a new hybrid double-decker bus, another of Livingstone's green initiatives.
   
Bloomberg said he was confident his toll plan -- he prefers the term "congestion pricing" to London's "congestion charge" -- would be introduced.
   
"The bottom line is, this is a popular thing. We have to convince the state legislature," he said.
   
"I'm very optimistic the assembly and the senate will pass it, the governor will sign it. I just think there would be such a firestorm if they didn't, because every day our children are breathing in the air, every day our stores and business are suffering, and it is going to get worse."

Release the Surveillance Records
http://www.dailygotham.com/blog/paul/release_the_surveillance_records

The thing is, to the New York Post, you're all just a bunch of dirty hippies - and potential terrorists. Oh, you may say you're just an ordinary American citizen and New Yorker, who wanted to demonstrate your disapproval of the Republican machine that chose to exploit 9/11 once again by flaunting itself at Madison Square Garden. Your nefarious plans may involve little more than wearing satirical costumes, helping poor folks with AIDS get housing, or even, say, being black and on the City Council.

But, according to the Post's editorial board, there's every reason to believe you're a terrorist like the ones who attacked the World Trade Center. As Oliver Koppel so insightfully noted, "vigorous advocacy can turn into violent acts." So try to keep your advocacy as tepid as possible.

In response to yesterday's revelations in the Times about the extent of the NYPD's pre-RNC domestic spying program, the Post has launched a typical right-wing broadside, once again ditching common sense for fluttery hysteria. Accusing the Times of "smearing the NYPD," the editorial breathlessly asks:
What will it take to make The New York Times wake up? Another 9/11? Madrid-like bombings? Violence like that of the '99 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle?

(More...)

I'm no fan of the silly "anarchist" brigade. But neither do I equate them to the people who hijacked four commercial jets and flew them into the Pentagon and the twin towers. Unlike the Post, I can tell the difference between mass murder and a bunch of teenagers breaking windows at Niketown. But then, unlike the Post, I'm not trying to blur those distinctions to further a political agenda. The Post means to draw a continuous line from Mohammad Atta through the guy with the foam sea turtle on his head, to you, dear reader, if you ever get so out of line as to consider exercising your right to freedom of speech (that would be one of the freedoms for which the terrorists hate us - evidently the right's strategy is to stop the terrorists from hating us by ditching the freedoms that bug them so much).

Don't get me wrong. I respect the NYPD and I know how necessary good intelligence is in fighting terrorism. Given how badly the Bush administration has wrecked the American intelligence apparatus, we need all the help we can get. But good judgment is required, and we have reason to believe that the NYPD's judgment was atrocious. Every minute they spent spying on a bunch of pacifists from Schenectady was a minute they could have spent doing something useful to improve security plans. It was a minute they could have spent tracking real terrorists, if that's what they were trying to do. Instead, it was a minute they spent chilling freedom of speech.

The Post plays dumb:
Sunday's gripe: Cops traveled far and wide "to conduct covert observations of people who planned to protest at the convention."

No wonder the convention went off without a hitch, most normal folks might think. Thank God! Good for the NYPD!

Clearly such a triumph by cops just doesn't sit well with Times editors.

Sunday's piece claimed that the NYPD's Intelligence Division "chronicled the views and plans of people who had no apparent intention of breaking the law."

Is that so?

But how can cops know a group's intentions unless they first review its actions - and maybe chronicle them?

The Post asks: was this legal? Yes, they tell us.

Okay - so why doesn't the Bloomberg administration want to release the surveillance records? It if was legal, show us. The only excuse the mayor's lawyers are giving is that people might “fixate upon and sensationalize” the information. That's no excuse. The burden of proof is on Mayor Bloomberg's administration to show that it did not go over the line when it allowed the NYPD to spy on peaceful demonstrators - demonstrators whom anyone with any modicum of judgment should have known posed no harm to anything but the mayor's ego.

If the Post is so sure that everything was on the up and up, why don't they join the Times in demanding the release of the surveillance records? Then, if the records support their contention that the spying program was fruitful and not abusive, they can flaunt the "triumph" even more.

Instead, the Post resorts to scaremongering and casual contempt for those with non-Murdoch-approved opinions - and the temerity to express those opinions in the street.

But supporters of such domestic spying programs should be cautious. It was the excesses of COINTELPRO that led to the Handschu limitations on undercover surveillance. Some complain that Handschu places undue burden on intelligence-gathering activities. If that's the case, one would think that advocates for such domestic spying programs would want to be very careful to avoid another backlash - which could ultimately result in even tighter restrictions.

So let's see the evidence. Prove that this program was justified, rather than oppressive and wasteful. Release the surveillance records, Mayor Bloomberg.

Mussolini, Schwarzenegger, Bloomberg Sound the Same? They Are the Same!

Jan. 10, 2008 (EIRNS)—Compare today's "emergency powers" speech by California Guvernator Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with this week's remarks by David Boren, the Draft-Bloomberg National Unity spokesman, to vintage speeches by Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator in Italy (1922 to 1945), and you get the same corporatist double-talk. No accident, the backers of Schwarzenegger and the election ploy of N.Y. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, are financial circles intent on imposing fascist regimes as the outcome of today's economic breakdown crisis. George Shultz and Warren Buffett are personally running the Schwarzenegger operation. On the Democratic side is Felix Rohatyn. The common theme is fierce austerity, imposed by forces "above politics."

Mussolini, 1922: `Economy, Work and Discipline'
On Nov. 16, 1922, Benito Mussolini gave his first speech to the Chamber of Deputies as Premier. He opened by threatening the Parliament that they would be shut down, if they did not go along with what his Black Shirts Fascisti were demanding, which he called, "development, progress and equilibrium."

He said, "In Italy, there is no lack of programs, but there is a lack of will power to translate programs into action. That is what we are here for...." He repeated at one point, "I can dissolve Parliament the day after tomorrow, just as easily as next year...."

"Above the minorities that go in for militant politics, there are 40 millions of Italians who work, who sweat, who reproduce themselves, who ask and have the right not to be thrown into chronic disorder and faction, which is the certain prelude to general disaster."

What economic programs? He said, "My internal policy can be expressed in the following words: Economy, work, discipline. The financial problem is a fundamental problem. We must arrive at a balancing act of the State budget."

After continuing with non-specific proposals, he said, "Let us take an oath to restore our finances and we will restore them; to follow a peaceful foreign policy and we will follow it; to discipline the nation, and we will discipline it...."

His concluding warnings were simple: "This is my program and this I am going to do. Either you help me to do it, or I will kick you out and get on without you."

(Account from the highly favorable coverage in the Nov. 17, 1922 New York Times, "Mussolini Demands Chamber Obey Him or Be Dissolved." The "Times" praised the "great dignity" with which Mussolini forcefully spoke, and included such observations as how "Mussolini keeps in the pink of physical condition.... He insists on sixty full minutes of hard fencing every morning.")

Mussolini, 1932: Fascism Denies Pursuit of Happiness
Excerpts from a Mussolini speech in 1932, titled, "The Doctrine of Fascism":

"Fascism ... does not believe in the possibility of 'happiness' on earth as conceived by the economistic literature of the 18th century....

"Fascism denies the materialistic conception of happiness as a possibility, and abandons it to the economists of the mid-eighteenth century. This means that Fascism denies the equation: well-being = happiness, which sees in men mere animals, content when they can feed and fatten, thus reducing them to a vegetative existence pure and simple....

"If liberalism spells individualism, Fascism spells government. The Fascist State is, however, a unique and original creation. It is not reactionary but revolutionary, for it anticipates the solution of certain universal problems which have been raised elsewhere, in the political field by the splitting up of parties, the usurpation of power by parliaments, the irresponsibility of assemblies; in the economic field by the increasingly numerous and important functions discharged by trade unions and trade associations with their disputes and ententes, affecting both capital and labor; in the ethical field by the need felt for order, discipline, obedience to the moral dictates of patriotism.

"Fascism desires the State to be strong and organic, based on broad foundations of popular support. The Fascist State lays claim to rule in the economic field no less than in others; it makes its action felt throughout the length and breadth of the country by means of its corporative, social, and educational institutions, and all the political, economic, and spiritual forces of the nation, organized in their respective associations, circulate within the State. A State based on millions of individuals who recognize its authority, feel its action, and are ready to serve its ends is not the tyrannical state of a medieval lordling. It has nothing in common with the despotic States existing prior to or subsequent to 1789..."

Schwarzenegger, 2008: `Permanent Victory in California'
In his speech Jan. 10, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, issuing a declaration of fiscal emergency in California, decreed that the state faces a "very tough solution." He said he will eliminate more than 7,000 jobs from the state payroll and make other cuts. His formulation is, "With tough times come historic opportunities, and I'm convinced that the Legislature will help in order to take this temporary problem that we have and turn it into a permanent solution, a permanent victory for the people of California, by joining me to enact true budget reform.


"We simply cannot have a budget system where revenues and spending are not tied together. We must rise to the challenge and fix California's budget system once and for all."

Bloomberg, 2008: `National Unity' Corporatism
On Jan. 6 and 7, 2008, a "national unity" confab, took place in Norman, Oklahoma, co-hosted by former Democratic Senators David Boren and Sam Nunn, backing a potential Michael Bloomberg 'independent' candidacy. At a press conference held Jan. 7 by David Boren, Bloomberg, and a variety of Democrats and Republicans, a mission statement was released, using soft-sell rhetoric to cover the corporatist policies behind the initiative. Excerpts (from coverage in The Norman Transcript, Jan. 7):

"A nonpartisan appeal to a nation at risk: America is in danger. Our ability to meet and solve the problems that face us is seriously compromised...

"Our budget and trade deficits are out of control. We are squandering our children's future. The ominous transfer of our national wealth has made our economy vulnerable, and our economic strength and competitiveness are both declining. Middle-income Americans are struggling to keep their homes and jobs and educate their children.

[Problems abound—overstretched military; vulnerability to terrorism; lack of energy policy; poor education; lack of health care; etc].

"The failures of bridges in Minneapolis and levees in New Orleans are harsh metaphors for the reckless neglect of our infrastructure. These critical issues are uniquely interlocked and we must have a national strategy and prioritization of resources. We are failing to address them because rampant partisanship has paralyzed the ability of our government to act. If we allow polarizing politics to continue, we will remain a nation divided and no matter who is elected this fall, he or she will not have a mandate for governing.

"Too many in both our parties have sought to energize their bases instead of reaching out to address the issues that concern our nation as a whole.

"They appeal to extremes and marginalize those in the commonsense center. In order to break this partisan impasse, we urge the presidential candidates to provide: clear descriptions of how they would establish a government of national unity; specific strategies for reducing polarization and reaching bipartisan consensus; plans to go beyond tokenism to appoint a truly bipartisan cabinet with critical posts held by the most qualified people available regardless of political affiliation; and proposals for bipartisan executive and legislative policy groups in critical areas such as national security. National elections present an opportunity for candidates and citizens to have a serious and civil discussion of the imperative issues facing our country at home and abroad.

"Today, we urge our fellow citizens, including the news media, to join us in asking the candidates to address these challenges. If as a nation we begin to ask, debate, and address these and other fundamental issues, we can renew our commitment to community and empower those we elect to govern effectively. We are convinced that if we establish a government of national unity, we can meet these challenges head on, develop a cohesive strategy prioritizing our responses and matching our goals with our capabilities.

"In short, we believe that if we unify, we can turn America's peril into America's promise and face our future with optimism."

If you haven't noticed, Bloomberg and Schwarzenagger are Mousilini parrots and their controllers (Shultz and Rohatyn) are both fascists.

Now we have a situation where Arnold is dictator of California and Bloomberg is becoming dictator of New York.

RETURN TO THE 14TH CENTURY

Rohatyn, Bloomberg Peddle ‘Post-Nation-State’ World


http://www.larouchepub.com/eiw/public/2008/2008_1-9/2008_1-9/2008-9/pdf/04-09_3509.pdf

............
City-States and Private Armies
A year later, Rohatyn joined George Shultz to co-host a conference at Middlebury College in Vermont, on the “privatization of national security.” During the early 1970s, when Rohatyn was an outside director of IT&T, and Shultz was a top Nixon Administration official, the two played a pivotal role in the Pinochet coup in Chile, which violently overthrew the Allende government. In the wake of that fascist coup, a number of World War II-era Nazis joined with Pinochet in “Operation Condor,” a death-squad program that carried out scores of targetted assassinations in the Americas and Europe over the ensuing decade.

At the Oct. 9, 2004 conference, Rohatyn argued that virtually all national security functions of the Federal government could be outsourced to the corporate sector. Peter Feaver, a speaker at the event, who was, at the time, a consultant to the Bush-Cheney National Security Council, openly used
the “F-word” in his speech, boasting that “In fact, what we’re seeing is a return to neo-feudalism. If you think how the East India Company played a role in the rise of the British Empire, there are similar parallels to the rise of the American quasiempire.”

Rohatyn, in his own remarks, focussed on the bottom line:
I will address this issue as privatization and what goes with it—not if it’s good or bad—because I think it is here to stay and there’s no point in arguing that issue. And also because I think it will grow. I don’t think for a moment that privatization will stop with security services. . . . I believe it is inevitable that
more and more ranking officers will leave the Pentagon and go with private companies, and then go back to the military as contractors, with businesses that have far greater market values.
Because one actor that you haven’t included here are the securities markets. And privatization, which is a dogma as well as a process, usually brings with it two other elements. One is
deregulation and the other is a need for transparency.”

Enter Michael Bloomberg
While Felix Rohatyn’s Big MAC tenure as the bankers’ gauleiter over New York City set the precedent for the gutting of the city and its transformation into an imperial metropolis, it would take the 2001 election of Michael Bloomberg as Mayor, to give the financial oligarchy a direct vise-grip on power in New York, and a hands-on control over the larger international cities movement.

Bloomberg barely won the 2001 mayoral election, relying on the Independence Party of New York ballot line, run by looney-birds Lenora Fulani and Fred Newman, to squeak past Democratic candidate Mark Green by 50,000 votes. Once in office, Bloomberg paid off his debt to Fulani and company, through an $8 million municipal bond, which financed a “community center” headquarters for the radical therapy group and its network of community front groups. In 2005, when he ran for reelection, Bloomberg again drew on the support
of Fulani, and in return, poured a reported $270,000 of his own money into the Independence Party coffers. Today, Independence Party of New York chairman Frank MacKay is leading Bloomberg’s 50-state effort to launch a 2008 independent Presidential bid—once the Democratic and Republican
party nominees have been pilloried by a ravenous media, led by the likes of Bloomberg ally Rupert Murdoch.

Despite the narrow victory, Bloomberg moved instantly to revive the worst looting features of Big MAC, and combine it with some of the most radical “global warming” swindles to come out of the Al Gore “climate change” mafia. And every step along the way, in league with Felix Rohatyn, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Mayor’s cronies from the Wall
Street corporatist establishment, all part of the David Rockefeller-founded Partnership for New York City, the New York “model” was spread around the U.S.A. and Europe.
...............

Barnstorming for Green Fascism
As part of his highly publicized drive for the Presidency, Mayor Bloomberg has been barnstorming as the self-appointed ambassador of America’s cities. In London last September, Bloomberg, joined by Governor Schwarzenegger, addressed the British Conservative Party’s annual convention in Blackpool, where he made the outright treasonous remark to his London sponsors: “You forgive us for 1776, and we forgiveyou for 1812.”............
