Serpico Joins NYPD Whistleblower's Legal Team

February 05, 2013  | 

Frank Serpico has joined the legal team of Officer Adrian Schoolcraft, a cop suing the NYPD for $50 million after police allegedly dragged him off to a mental hospital after he accused them of fudging crime stats.

"This is the way they do it," Serpico told the New York Daily News. "They make you a psycho and everything you do gets discounted. But I told Adrian just to tell the truth as he knows it and to be himself. When you tell the truth, they can't do a damn thing to you."

Serpico, 76, was credited with exposing corruption inside the NYPD. He testified in front of the Knapp Commission in 1971 and retired the following year.

I'd just be happy if any of those police officers that swear to defend the U.S. Constitution would take the time to actually read the U.S. Constitution.
