NYPD Cop Pleads Guilty In Gun-Smuggling Case

February 07, 2012  | 

The ringleader of a gang of active and retired cops pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to transport illegal guns, cigarettes and slot machines across state lines, reports the New York Daily News.

Disgraced NYPD officer William Masso, 48, pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court in exchange for a prison sentence that could put him behind bars for five to six years when he is sentenced June 15.

He also agreed to forfeit $50,000 in illicit proceeds. Masso was one of eight current and former cops arrested, along with four others, after a two-year FBI sting.

Why?

When we are facing record numbers of Officers being killed in the line of duty and an increasingly hostile public, WHY in the world would someone who wears or had worn a badge want to just ensure more black marks on all of us??? Most things we cannot control, being ethical and having some honor about ourselves and our actions is completely in our power.

Not for nothing, but we who wear the uniform are human. It is human to explore the curious, and it is human to err on the side of criminal activity. There is a little bit of perpetrator in ALL human beings, and because we put on a uniform, dosen't make us impervious to crossing over to the other side. Others find it easy to do, and others take into consideration the consequenses of what might happen should they get caught. Just be thankful that the majority have not decided to crossover, or things could be alot worse than it is now.
