SORT BY Relevancy
Abuse and Other Alleged Misconduct reported by Citizens of this Great City of Yonkers, New York Alleged to have commited acts of misconduct.
Are acts of police misconduct in the United States increasing? Are rogue police officers being held accountable for their acts of misconduct? Who pays the price when criminal cops are not purged from the police department? Has any police officer involved in a questionable or controversial shooting death been successfully prosecuted by State Government?
On Thursday January 31, 2013 at 6:00 PM eastern time, we will provide information that will answer these questions. This will be an insightful segment of the Justice For All Show.
According to published reports the U.S. Justice Department announced a federal monitor will watch over the Newark Police Department. The announcement followed the culmination of a three year review of the police department.
The review found several serious problems that were reasonably believed to be a pattern and practice of the department. Among the problems uncovered were violations of citizens Constitutional Rights, thefts by police officers, and excessive force.
Why did so many negative and unlawful department wide practices go undetected and unreported for such a lengthy period of time? Who has been held accountable for the wide spread misconduct? Will effective changes be made to make certain these problems are not repeated?
Please join us on Thursday July 31, 2014 at 6:00 PM for the first part of this analysis and discussion. We will take a very close look at this problem and explain why the proper steps to arrest police misconduct have not been initiated to date.
With everything going on in the country today we thought that it would be a good idea to have an episode on Police and the community. The police are supposed to be there to make you feel safe, comfortable and protected. However, some members of our communities are scared, in danger and feel unprotected. Some people see the police as the good guys, some view them as the bad guys. We are going to have a great discussion on this today. We will touch on what makes people feel the way they do about the police and how we can improve relationships between community memebers and the police officers who serve them.
We'll talk a little bit about Michael Brown and the others that have been in police involved brutality, shootings or confrontations.
Of course the police will always have people that dislike them (the criminals) because they hinder their plans of breaking the law. However, the police shouldn't have a stigma of not being fair to certain people or have the community scared when they cross paths with an officer.

We will continue our discussion of the U.S. Justice Department's announcement of a federal monitor to watch over the Newark New Jersey Police Department.
The Justice Department's review found several serious problems that were reasonably believed to be a pattern and practice of the department. Among the problems uncovered were violations of citizens Constitutional Rights, thefts by police officers, and excessive force. Additionally the Justice Department report stated, concerns that the NPD's current suicide prevention, policies, practices, and training create an unacceptable suicide risk to future Green Street detainees if not corrected.
Why did so many high salaried members of upper management fail to detect serious misconduct that was a pattern and practice of the department. Who has been held accountable for the wide spread misconduct? Will effective changes be made to make certain these problems are not repeated?

Joe DeCicco is a retired New York City Detective who originally attended college to practice electrical engineering.
After working as a lighting designer for several years, life circumstances decreed that he join the New York City Police Department in 1973. He has spent more than half his service in plainclothes; including over four years as an Organized Crime Control Bureau narcotics investigator, one year with Brooklyn Central Robbery and more than three years with the Brooklyn South Detective Division assigned to the 62nd Squad in Bensonhurst. After spending twenty years on the streets of New York, Joe happily retired with over twenty awards and decorations on July 4th 1993, uniquely celebrating his own independence day and combining it with our Nation Holiday.
Joe explains that his writings come from an inner need to share his experiences with others in a well-defined attempt to show that, “The Job”, is not a vocation but an avocation that spans all the nuances of the human spirit. His entertaining works show sometimes complex personalities of those who choose to be the daily guardians of our society, while fulfilling the public’s ongoing interest with police work.
Joe has been a featured guest on American Heroes Talk Radio, San Dimas, California and Blue Line Radio, Wilmington North Carolina.
Joe DeCicco now resides in the coastal area of Wilmington North Carolina with his wife and is a licensed private investigator.
The death of Mike Brown in Ferguson Missouri once again highlights the growing problem with police brutality in America.

The Horrible Naked Truth goes in raw and does not mince words about an issue that affects us all. Whether you are black, white, rich, poor, male or female, this problem affects us all.
