Cop: Payback Likely After Frisk Testimony

NEW YORK (AP) -

A New York City police officer testified Wednesday that he’s already been labeled a rat and expects more retaliation from colleagues for testifying that the department routinely enforces quotas.

Officer Pedro Serrano told a federal judge in Manhattan that his colleagues in the Bronx already dumped out his locker and stuck rodent stickers on the outside, implying he is a rat for testifying.

“I fear that they’re going to try and set me up and get me fired,” he said.

Serrano, along with Officer Adhyl Polanco, said if they didn’t get the 20 summonses, one arrest and five street stops per month while working patrol, they’d face poor evaluations, shift changes and no overtime.
