Officer and Freeholders Brother not Prosecuted for crime - NJ

Posted February 9th, 2010 by redgar

A Garwood Borough NJ Police officer is caught on tape vandalizing at a laundromat, then the next day is caught (again on tape) breaking into the municipal building and going through the drawers of the Chief Financial Officer. He is issued two summons. Prosecution is moved to the Westfield Municipal court. The Westfield prosecutor refuses to prosecute based on "the interest of justice." Today we find out Garwood and the police officer have signed an agreement to give the guy a good reference if he agrees to resign. John Paff of the NJ Libertarian Party Open Government Taskforce does excellent work exposing these crooks. See the link for links to the actual summons.

Protesting dismissal of charges against the cop

The NJLP is planning protests. Some ideas we are kicking around are:

  • showing up at the Westfield court giving out flyers detailing what happened and urging defendants to ask for the same treatment, i.e. dismissal of charges in the "interest of justice"
  • showing up at town hall in either Westfield or Garwood and filming while asking questions
  • showing up at the next town hall meeting asking questions and filming (Westfield has a town meeting on 2/23).
  • Its sick that the press has not been covering this.

As a result of an OPRA request we now have the video of the copy vandalizing the change machines. I've updated the original story to include the video.
