NYPD officer charged with using badge, cruiser to help rob drug dealers

A 17-year veteran of the New York City Police Department pled not guilty Thursday to charges that he supplied police paraphernalia and weapons to a stickup crew, which then used the equipment to rob drug dealers.

Officer Jose Tejada is accused of involvement in a string of 2006 and 2007 robberies in which he is alleged to have provided NYPD badges, uniforms and even police vehicles to a group of thieves. Tejada, 45, who had been assigned to police Harlem, was in uniform and on duty at the time of at least one of his alleged crimes.

He’s been connected to three of the more than one hundred robberies the crew is supposedly behind, with some dating back to 2001. Tejada is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to distribute drugs including heroin, cocaine, MDMA, and marijuana, as well as an unlawful use of a firearm charge, according to local NY1 news.

Do you want better laws to come out of Congress?

Well, we'll all need to work towards getting America a BETTER Congress.

I hope that I only have to say this once.

Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learned from Mr. Rogers

Someone once asked me if I could “model” myself after anyone who would it be? After thinking about it, I said, “Fred Rogers.”

Now, THAT got a laugh.

But the reason is simple. Fred Rogers did what most people dream of: he spent his life doing the things he loved and at the same time made a positive impact on millions of people. And he did it in an honest way without changing who he was (and by all accounts he was just the same off-camera that he was on-camera).

Who could ask for more?

But even more, I figure that I pretty much learned everything I needed to know from Mr. Rogers.

Fred Rogers and his TV show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood taught me more about life than most of those self-help guru/scammers out there. And he did it for free!

So, what did I learn? These are just some of the lessons I learned from Mr. Rogers.


“If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
Fred Rogers


Margaret Thatcher could have learned a million things from Fred Rogers.

If she did, then the whole world would not be going out of its way to piss on her grave.
