How can a dirt bag like JS get away with that. He should've been put in jail. You can't go around flippin cops off and figure the cops are going to ignore you. If someone was robbing his house, the cops would be the first one he calls for help. I hope they don't show up. What goes around comes around.

Great to see comments in New York Times how backwards we are. NY cop says if we arrested every person who gives us the finger, millions would be on court duckets. These play John Wayne's hiding everywhere are finally getting their justice.

From the Leader Herald newspaper...."Attorney Thomas Murphy, who is representing Collins, pointed out Friday that Swartz is suing Insogna and Collins, and not municipalities."
