NYPD “Rape Cops” Had Prior Abusive Incident Towards A Woman

Two months ago, a New York City jury acquitted two NYPD officers who were accused (in a 2008 incident) of allegedly entering the apartment of a drunk woman — who they’d been called to help — several times over the course of one night and raping her. Kenneth Moreno was accused of raping the woman, then a 27-year-old Gap employee who was blackout drunk, while his partner Franklin Mata stood watch.

A source told Page Six at The New York Post that the Shore’s biggest poonhounds “didn’t know” their cover would be for the gay issue. It’s funny, considering their homophobia and blustery machismo, but still a little unethical, no? [New York Post, The Village Voice] Keep reading »
