Apparently, NYPD Detective Christopher Perino thought he was slick and denied threatening a suspect Erik Crespo in court. Well don't you know the tech savy teen taped the entire "conversation" that included threats to the then 17 year-old's mother and sister on a tiny MP3 player he had in his pocket?
So much for doing a thorough job of frisking the suspect, huh?
Therefore, when the trifling Detective got on the stand talking about he never interrogated Crespo let alone threatened him, the defense attorney basically whipped out the 62-page transcript of the taped convo and cold busted his ass. Mmm-hmm, just like that.
In addition to being played to the left in front of a courtroom full of people, the Detective was immediately charged with perjury and arrested. He is suspended without pay, will probably lose his pension and could now go to jail his DAMN self.
You know.... I wanna say I feel bad for the former Detective, especially since it turns out the kid is truly guilty of the crime they arrested him for (he was caught on tape shooting someone).
BUT at the end of the day, I'm not really for all that threatening of folks mothers and sisters... No sir, not at all.
