NYPD Whistleblower Says He Won't Settle for Money

September 28, 2010  | 

A whistleblower cop vowed Monday night never to settle his $50 million federal lawsuit against the NYPD.

"This is not about money," Police Officer Adrian Schoolcraft told the Daily News.

Although Schoolcraft said he's flat-broke and living on Ramen noodles, he said that, "There's not enough money in the state to get me to settle this suit.

"It's going to trial and there's no way around that—the truth has to come out."

Schoolcraft, an eight-year veteran from the 81st Precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, has been suspended without pay since last Halloween, when, he says, the NYPD forced him against his will into a mental ward at Jamaica Hospital in Queens.

He said in his suit that the NYPD cast him as a lunatic because he blew the whistle on supervisors who fudged crime stats, enforced illegal quotas and badgered victims trying to report felonies.

If what Officer Schoolcraft says is proven to be true, there is no excuse but to fire and prosecute every NYPD Officer who was a part of this. Anything less would in itself be criminal. I just don't understand how these people get up in the morning and look in the mirror. Words cannot describe how disgusting and disgraceful this type of behavior is; totally unacceptable in our profession.
