From the NY Post:
Eight current and former city cops were part of a ring that smuggled guns, cigarettes and slot machines into New York from out of state, the feds charged today.
The 12 defendants -- including five active-duty officers NYPD officers based in Brooklyn -- were busted this morning on charges including conspiracy to transport firearms and conspiracy to transport and receive stolen merchandise.
The early-morning arrests capped an undercover sting operation that began in late 2009 after an FBI informant was introduced to one cop -- William Masso of the 68th Precinct -- "as a person who could 'fix' the (informant's) traffic tickets," the court papers say.
The Bronx District Attorney's Office is currently investigating a massive NYPD ticket-fixing scandal that sources have said will lead to charges against at least 17 officers.
The other active-duty cops named in today's federal complaint are Eddie Goris and John Mahoney, also of the 68th Precinct; Ali Oklu of the Brooklyn South Task Force; and Gary Ortiz of the 71st Precinct.
Good old fashioned corrupt cops. I mean there is nothing like it. Fixing tickets, selling you some guns, they got whatever you need. I mean shit I've seen fucking American Gangster, I know that cops are the fucking biggest drug dealin', money bribing, gun toting folks around. Kudos to the NYPD, the only people more corrupt than the people you arrest, are your officers. Fuck the police.
