Baltimore reaffirms its commitment to douche-y cops

WTOP reports that a Baltimore judge has granted a motion to dismiss the civil lawsuit against Officer Rivieri for assaulting a minor. There’s been a back and forth about whether the suit could be filed; the underlying point of law has a restriction that suit must be filed within six months, which it was not. Whether or not this applied when a juvenile is involved is the issue that the boy and his mother would need to appeal, which their lawyer seems to have some doubt they can afford to do.

Rivieri is back on the beat, presumably continuing his history of delightful behavior. Here’s another one of his efforts to reach out to the youth on the inner harbor.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Quite the charmer, isn’t he? I always thought it was ‘protect and serve’, not ‘throw to the ground and berate’.

    I don’t know what the kids did to arouse his anger in the first place- there may have been something before the camera kicked in- but there was NO reason to throw that kid like that. He wasn’t armed, he wasn’t resisting arrest, there’s no justification for an action like that.

    As for the second video, again, what a dick- steps out of the car and starts kicking things around. Again, no justification for actions like that.

    Here’s hoping Baltimore P.D. takes the proper action and tosses this jackass before his next temper tantrum- because otherwise, judging from these two videos, there WILL be another one.

  2. No surprise here — there was little doubt that this pathetic fool would have to face any consequences for his ‘heroic’ actions. As expected, the ‘Brothers-in-Blue’ protect one of their own, no matter how outrageous or pathetic. What’s really scary is that this ticking-time-bomb is once again wearing a badge and carrying a gun. At least the whole world has seen what a laughingstock this pathetic ego-maniacal fool is. I bet his family is so PROUD! Way to go Baltimore!!!
