2 New York Cops Caught on Tape Stealing $6,000 From Parolee
2 NEW YORK COPS CAUGHT RED-HANDED STEALING $6,000 FROM PAROLEE ON TAPE
Another day, another dose of police nefariousness. It’s getting hard to keep up with it all, frankly. And this time, we have yet another round of bad police news from New York. 2 cops from the New York Division of Parole have gotten themselves into some real hot water, as they were caught on tape stealing $6,000 from a parolee. One officer is still yet to be identified; the other was Doris Hernandez. The two were in a parolee’s bedroom, searching, when a hidden camera caught the two, red handed. It’s not a good look, though it doesn’t rise to a reaction of civil unrest.
TAPE SHOWS COPS FINDING, DISCUSSING, AND STEALING MONEY FROM PAROLEE
But the tape is not good, not by any means. The hidden camera’s recording caught the two discussing the theft, in detail. The two cops were searching parolee Shannon Carpenter and her boyfriend John Grandberry’s bedroom when they found a case of money hidden in a pair of pink Timberland boots. In the video, Officer Hernandez seems to type a message on her phone and hands it to her still unidentified colleague. He looks at it, hands it back to her, and the two whisper too quietly for the microphone to pick up. Then the colleague looks out the door before turning back to Hernandez.
PAROLEE TURNED CAMERA ON WHEN COPS ENTERED ROOM TO SEARCH
That’s where the microphone picked up the criminal words, “We can share the money.” “You’re right,” Hernandez replied. “As long as there’s enough money to go around,” her colleague then says. That sure seems to indicate that this behavior was almost normal. Cops stealing from parolees whenever they have the opportunity. Who can a parolee go to, to complain? The police? And how can they prove the loss of cash? Poof, it’s gone. But this time, parolee Shannon Carpenter turned on the camera when the two cops entered the room to search it.
