Serpico (remember him?) Comes
Out of Obscurity To Fight For Justice
READ MORE HERE: http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/
watched the fascinating Frank Serpico interview on the
"Aljazeera American Tonight" Channel on January
13, 2015 and witnessed Frank Serpico, who at age 78,
still has some fight left in him. His story, made into a
major motion picture, acknowledged him as the embodiment
of bravery and a crusader for justice. Risking his life
to bring light to the criminal activity within the ranks
of the NYPD who were hired as communal protectors of the
public not as tyrannical oppressors, of which they had
is speaking out again, telling the world that some of the
best and brightest within the NYPD (and elsewhere) have
habituated back to their old corrupt habits of 45 years
put it mildly.)
the Wikipedia outline (below) on this amazing man. And
watch the embedded video, Part 1 and Part 2.
In September 1959,
Serpico joined the New York City Police Department (NYPD)
as a probationary patrolman. He became a full patrolman
on March 5, 1960. He was assigned to the 81st precinct,
then worked for the Bureau of Criminal Identification
(BCI) for two years. He was finally assigned to work
plainclothes, where he uncovered widespread corruption.
Serpico was a
plainclothes police officer working in Brooklyn and the
Bronx to expose vice racketeering. In 1967 he reported
credible evidence of widespread systematic police
corruption. Nothing happened, until he met another police
officer, David Durk, who helped him. Serpico believed his
partners knew about secret meetings with police
investigators. Finally, Serpico contributed to an April
25, 1970, New York Times front-page story on widespread
corruption in the NYPD. Mayor John V. Lindsay appointed a
five-member panel to investigate charges of police
corruption. The panel became the Knapp Commission, named
after its chairman, Whitman Knapp.
Shooting and public
Serpico was shot
during a drug arrest attempt on February 3, 1971, at 778
Driggs Avenue, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
Four officers from Brooklyn North received a tip that a
drug deal was about to take place.
Two policemen, Gary
Roteman and Arthur Cesare, stayed outside, while the
third, Paul Halley, stood in front of the apartment
building. Serpico climbed up the fire escape, entered by
the fire escape door, went downstairs, listened for the
password, then followed two suspects outside.
The police arrested
the young suspects, and found one had two bags of heroin.
Halley stayed with the suspects, and Roteman told Serpico
(who spoke Spanish), to make a fake purchase attempt to
get the drug dealers to open the door. The police went to
the third-floor landing. Serpico knocked on the door,
keeping his hand on his revolver. The door opened a few
inches, just far enough to wedge his body in. Serpico
called for help, but his fellow officers ignored him.
Serpico was then shot
in the face with a .22 LR pistol. The bullet struck just
below the eye and lodged at the top of his jaw. He fired
back, fell to the floor, and began to bleed profusely.
His police colleagues refused to make a
"10-13", a dispatch to police headquarters
indicating that an officer had been shot. An elderly man
who lived in the next apartment called the emergency
services and reported that a man had been shot. The
stranger stayed with Serpico. A police car arrived.
Unaware that Serpico was one of them, the officers took
him to Greenpoint Hospital.
The bullet had
severed an auditory nerve, leaving him deaf in one ear,
and he has suffered chronic pain from bullet fragments
lodged in his brain. He was visited the day after the
shooting by Mayor John V. Lindsay and Police Commissioner
Patrick V. Murphy, and the police department harassed him
with hourly bed checks. He survived and testified before
the Knapp Commission.
surrounding Serpico's shooting quickly came into
question. Serpico, who was armed during the drug raid,
had been shot only after briefly turning away from the
suspect when he realized that the two officers who had
accompanied him to the scene were not following him into
the apartment, raising the question whether Serpico had
actually been brought to the apartment by his colleagues
to be murdered. There was no formal investigation.
On May 3, 1971, New
York Metro Magazine published an article about Serpico
titled "Portrait of an Honest Cop". On May 10,
1971, Serpico testified at the departmental trial of an
NYPD lieutenant who was accused of taking bribes from

I hope Frank Serpico can help put a stop to the brazen
attitudes of those who wear a police uniform and think it
entitles them to be above the law.
