More of "LI's finest" commiting crimes. Starting to wonder who the cops are and who the criminals are. With the recent police brutality resulting in death and now this, one begins to wonder.

Nothing to wonder about except your attempt at false propaganda regarding an imagined claim of excessive force.

Lookie lookie. I wonder how many people this shining star locked up for DWI. The pot calling the kettle black my friends. With all the competition for this job, this cop goes a makes a no no. It'd be nice if he got fired, considering his criminal actions resulted in a civilian's injury. Maybe DA Rice should make an example out of this officer. After all, if you can't trust the cops for your safety, who can you trust?

'Police Pay
In response to the March 4 letter, "Blue Benefits," may I state that it is not the police but the writer who is "missing the bigger picture."
This month marks my eighth year as a Nassau County police officer and - contrary to what County Executive Thomas Suozzi and Newsday would have you believe - I have never come close to earning $100,000 in any year. In fact, I have never made even $90,000 in my eight years on the force.
The writer also misses the "big picture" when he talks about retired police officers collecting their pensions for 40 years. The life expectancy of a retired police officer is far shorter than that of workers in the private sector - the same one where most of you do not have to work nights, weekends and holidays.
Then, the writer tries to compare the differences in our work "when things get tight." Let me point out another difference in law enforcement as opposed to the private sector when things get "tight." In my job when things get "tight," there is a good chance I could get hurt or killed.
And, lastly, in response to the writer's advice that I have my spouse work: She does work, in a job I left - underpaid member of the New York City police.

Points all well taken but I thought it was in the contract that top pay after 5 years is $95-96K for NCPD?? How do you figure then that you never made $90K after 8 years?

Was the policeman also a clown? If so, it would have been scary getting pulled over by him.

Yep - you are right - sleeping in your car, having a bully complex, acting holier than thou, being too stupid to do some honest work - you are correct, I wouldn't last a week

To "The Voice":
I believe that the figure you cite is at the end of the contract period in 2012. Current "top" pay would be well below that. Departments also tend to fudge the "estimate" a bit by "assuming" a certain number of night hours, holidays and other optional add-ons that only a portion of the force actually will earn.

You Sir, would last a day in my shoes! I work on Wall Street as a trader, entrusted with tens of millions of dollars of other peoples money. You would have a nervous breakdown by noon. Cops have a short life span because they overeat fast foods and are overweight. Your job is not as "stressful" as u want everyone to believe.

Its amazing that cops get caught driving drunk only after they've actually crashed or injured somebody. I wonder how many off duty cops even get speeding tickets let alone stopped and arrested for DWI? Half of you guys are the biggest scofflaws in society. And you know it!
