Talk about abuse of power. These guys need to be punished to the “full extent” of the law.
The corrupt cops, who all specialized in #narcotics investigations, were arrested Wednesday. Four of the officers were previously removed from street duty during the two-year federal probe, Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV reported.
In one case, Liciardello knocked a suspect’s teeth out so he could steal $34,000. In another, Spicer dangled a man off a balcony so the other officers could swipe a designer suit.
The cops also held suspects without arrest warrants, broke into at least one suspect’s home, stopped cars in traffic without reason and searched residences without warrant, according to the indictment.
In a massive six-year heist, six Philadelphia police officers viciously beat up drug suspects and stole more than $500,000 from the people they were investigating, federal agents said Wednesday.
