Like millions of others, I am thankful and indebted to men (and women) like Frank Serpico who put what is moral and right above their own interests. May they be recognized for the true heros they are!

Police across the country are still owned by organized crime, but a different kind, as in the government and big corporations. Forest City Enterprises has the Chicago police in their back pocket. It will be the same in Brooklyn if their AY project gets built.

The legacy of Frank Serpico lives on in my novel, "Trench Riker" About a Desert Storm vet-turned detective, faced with racism and his own personal demons, and how he exposes corruption and hate-crimes, despite his afluent up-bringing.

Belated Happy Birthday, Paco. I may not agree with all of Frank Serpico's politics, but he's a good, caring, honest man, who if at all possible, will help another person in need of advice or help. God bless him.-Joe www.bluewallnypd.com

Mr. Frank Serpico is my hero since the 80's.
His character is great, he is one of the few police officers, who tell the truth and he came out and let the public knew all about police corruption.
I live in Germany, not in the USA. But I think, he is the hero of many many people outside USA.
Best wishes for Frank Serpico!
Regards
Sabine

Police Officer Frank Serpico was a true leader during his days with the NYPD. Those that "go along" with corruption posses the inability to stand up on their own two feet, and are in effect followers. For those, it is easier to go with the flow than to walk against the tide. Although I was very young during Serpico's time in the NYPD, I am very aware that in my own hometown of Los Angeles, and many other big and small city police departments, corruption was or became known at some point in our not too distant histories. Hopefully now, there are many more Frank Serpico's serving U.S. citizens in our nation's police forces today. We cannot thank him for his standards and integrity and for doing the what was right enough.

sounds like you know about all that pedophile stuff from experience there buddy. just don't try and attribute it to the prophet just because you're an webfooted inbred from hickland georgia. that ain't right man...

I see you didn't deny that mohammed is a child raper,and that muslims in general approve of it.Check your muslim kids for the webfeet.Since you're a muslim please answer this:when you rape and impregnate your daughter,is the offspring your child,grandkid or both? And do you kill your daughter for allowing you to rape her before or after the child is born?

what was that?? did you SAY something? i'm sorry, i only acknowledge what is truth, and what seems to be the truth here is that you are quite experienced in such deviant activities and you are so full of self-scorn and have a desperate need for vindication, so you project this hatred onto others who are different from you in a way which is blasphemous, incendiary, and shameful, as if you are making a case for yourself. but you have not a modicum of class or any idea of tact, and unlike you and your inferior counterparts, i will not blame this on your religion but just on you. it was not jesus who made you the piece of shit you are, but your environment, family, and lack of anything resembling intellectual capabilities. what scum you are. bashing the prophet mohammad will not change this simple fact.

all i'm saying is i cant wait for the second civil war. the south will lose again and it will be sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet
