USA: Police State

Yep… A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words.

And since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will keep this short…

On a recent night, in Rochester, NY, RPD officer Eliud Rodriguez, who is also a professionalphotographer, decided there were better things to do than patrol the streets.

So he called 8 of his fellow RPD brothers and told to him to meet him on a building rooftop in downtown Rochester to take pictures.

On tax payers time.

In 2010, Rochester, NY Police officer Eliud Rodriguez’s base salary was $69,100.12.

Rodriguez made an additional $39, 614.00 in overtime, and $2, 510.00 in compensatory pay.

In total, Rodriguez made $111,224.16

Must be nice to snap photos of your fellow officers ‘Kung Fu Fighting’, on duty, on a building roof-top, while the taxpayers pay you in overtime alone, more than many people make in a year.

I have called the City of Rochester Mayor Thomas Richards to see what he has to say about this.

I will be update this as soon as I hear back from someone.

Note: Rochester, NY Police officer Eliud Rodriguez is one of 7 RPD officers who executed

Israel “Izzy” Andino, a mentally-ill young man this past June.
