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.
