Retired UPD

I'm retired UPD. Benny had a clique. I was not in it. I got crapped on by him and his wife for years. All I wanted to be was a good cop. But corruption got in the way. I could have been promoted, but because I didn't kiss Benny's ass I didn't. Lot's of corruption. Cops out on the street would chew people's asses out for minor violations when they were doing things much worse. Put my 20 in and got out. The hypocrisy, the double standards. It's just one more reason Utica isn't moving forward.

When Rotundo was Chief of Police, only his "buddies" got hired and promoted - especially, if your name ended in a vowel.

In order to get hired, you had to be Italian, and kiss Rotundo's ass which went on for years UNTIL Hanna became Mayor. How many old timers remember all the battles between Hanna and Rotundo with Hanna winning most of the battles!!!!

Back in the days of Rotundo, UPD was a "good old boys club" and if you knew anyone at UPD, you could get away with any crime (including Murder). The mob ran this City - NOT UPD!!!!!

The best thing that happen for Utica was when Rotundo finally retired.
