How to make Strawhorn and Tanner look lightweight:
TWO “mob cops” went on trial in New York yesterday, in a case closely watched by Hollywood, for betraying their badges to work as paid killers for the Mafia.

Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, decorated New York detectives who met at the police academy in 1969, are charged with a total of eight “hits”, including one on the wrong man. Prosecutors say they received up to $75,000 (about £42,000) each time.

“The two men were not traditional mobsters,” Mitra Hormozi, the prosecutor, told the jury. “They were better. They could get away with murder because these two men were New York City police detectives.”

    Read a little bit about this one. This sort of shit can't be good for the moral of the honest cops and and sure a sshit won't instil confidence in yJoe Bloggson the street, towards the cops in general

    Anyway, there's almost no difference between a good crim and a good cop - the cops have to think like the crims to catch them. They're simply standing on opposite sides of the fence


Don't screw this up.
