The undercover cop, pretending to be a dealer, worked on a two-week sting operation when they received information on an unrelated drug case.
The two cops made him pull over at a traffic stop, robbed him, arrested him and took him to the police station where a unpleasant surprise was waiting for them: arrest. A videotape is showing that all of this really happened.
Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey is embarrassed on behalf of the whole department. He says that it’s not the first time that Philadelphia police is embarrassing themselves.
The two young cops apologized later for having disgraced their badges during the incident. They should have sentenced 67 years in prison but they only got 10 to 20 year term.
They pleaded guilty to charges including robbery, conspiracy and kidnapping.
