    Default Psycho Cop in Philly

    Lol, how does a city get so corrupted that something like this can happen? They had the tape in internal affairs, but they let this nutjob back on the street. I'll bet the woman gets a solid $7-figure lawsuit from this loser. Too bad he was allowed to procreate.

    [ame=""]YouTube - Woman Assaulted By Cops At Lukoil In philadelphia PA.[/ame]

    Cop caught on video bullying woman is taken off street duty

    Philadelphia Daily News 215-854-2595
    A Philadelphia cop caught on a surveillance video jamming his service weapon into the neck of a young woman in a convenience store has been removed from street duty until disciplinary proceedings against him are complete.

    Officer Alberto Lopez Sr. confronted Agnes Lawless, then 20, last August at a Lukoil store in the Northeast, after Lawless and three friends had been in a fender-bender involving Lopez's son.

    Images from the store video appeared with an article about the incident in Monday's Daily News, and yesterday police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore said Lopez had been placed on desk duty.

    "That was a decision made by the commissioner or one of the deputy commissioners," Vanore said. "After having seen the video and the story, they took him off the street until the discipline is decided, and that should be shortly."

    An investigation of the incident by the department's Internal Affairs Bureau concluded that Lopez had verbally abused Lawless and that "a gun was pushed into her neck." It also concluded that Lopez was guilty of "departmental violations."

    A June 15 hearing for Lopez before the Police Board of Inquiry was canceled and won't be rescheduled until next month, Inspector Chris Flacco said. The board will recommend what discipline, if any, will be imposed on Lopez.

    The decision ultimately rests with Commissioner Charles Ramsey.

    Lopez originally was removed from street duty last September when Internal Affairs was investigating, but he was restored to full duty in December after the District Attorney's Office declined to pursue criminal charges against him.

    After his physical struggle with Lawless inside the store, Lopez arrested her on charges of assaulting a police officer. After the surveillance video of the incident was released, Lopez failed to show up at three court appearances and the charges against Lawless were dropped. She now lives in Florida.
    Lawless' attorney, Alan Yatvin, said yesterday that it was "a good thing they're taking [Lopez] off the street, given the conduct we see in the video, but a more important question is why those decisions aren't a matter of routine.

    "Why does it take a story in the Daily News and on television for the department to do what it should have done, which is to take him and keep him off the street and proceed quickly with the disciplinary process?" Yatvin asked.

    Lopez's attorney, Gerald Stanshine, could not be reached for comment.

    Amen to that. Some think that a badge and a gun make them above the law. It's ass hats like this that make all the other cops look bad.

    that's the problem, is that they don't. at the very worst, they're force him to resign and he'll pick up a job at another city/department. like was said before, even though its a small percentage of people that don't belong being cops, they make a lot of others look bad. it doesn't help that the brotherhood sticks up for people they know shouldn't be in there.

    That angers me. I believe in Cops, and Fire, EMS, etc. Ex medic, going back to school for medic again, I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly on all sides. Some cops really do get power hungry behind the badge. And its sad for those cops who are good people, and good at what they do.
