A New York City police officer named Jose Tejada took part in three robberies or attempted robberies of drug dealers while he worked in Harlem, prosecutors allege, acting as the “intelligence czar” for the robbery crew, according to the New York Post. Beyond that, he allegedly helped outfit them with police gear. “He also supplied the crew with police uniforms, paraphernalia and police vehicles, the authorities said.” As we’ve seen before, this city’s fake cops don’t have a great record of success.
Acosta/CNN also argued a First Amendment violation of viewpoint or content discrimination. Judge did not end up having to consider this.
