“Rape Cop” Street Posters Reveal Where Accused Officer Kenneth Moreno Lives

Things are getting ugly: after NYPD officer Kenneth Moreno was acquitted of rape last week, posters went up in his Brooklyn neighborhood allegedly listing the street on which his family resides. “Police rapist Kenneth Moreno lives on [blank] street in Park Slope,” the signs read (above), which have been posted on New York City-based blogs with the address blacked out. Other signs, evocative of artist Shepherd Fairey’s “Obama” posters, read “NYPD Rapists” with Moreno and Mata’s pictures (after the jump).

I personally think Moreno is guilty as sin (as well as his former partner, Franklin Mata, who allegedly stood lookout while he raped an unconscious drunk woman in her bed). And I’m not necessarily against protest-art-as-vigilante-justice. But I absolutely cannot support making the guy’s alleged address public when, over the course of his job, he surely pissed off a drug dealer or murderer.

What do you think of these signs? [Gothamist]
