Outrage! New York City Cop Issued Tickets To Dead People

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The New York Police Department said investigators discovered an officer had written 36 fraudulent tickets, including some issued to dead people.

Police said Officer Paul Pizzuto, 40, a 17-year veteran, wrote tickets for drivers who had committed no offenses, including some motorists who were deceased, between March and June of 2010, the New York Post reported Thursday."



The cop falsely claimed to have worked a lot of overtime, he issued the fake tickets to make it look like he really was working a lot of hours.

A police officer is supposed to "protect and serve" the community, instead this crooked cop was victimizing drivers by issuing them tickets when they had committed no offenses.

This cop stole from his employer by falsifying his time cards, and he preyed upon citizens he should have been protecting. This wretched police officer should immediately be fired.
