UPDATED MONDAY OCTOBER 17, 2016 BY DAVY V.
Monday morning I took a drive down to the New York State Troop E Barracks in Rochester, NY.
The NYSP Troop E barracks, located on Scottsville Rd., right behind the Greater Rochester airport, is the same barracks which is using unmarked police vehicles to pull over motorists for traffic violations, such Elaine Capriccio, who was pulled over recently near Rochester, NY, after being followed for several miles.
At first Capriccio didn't know who was following her since the unmarked Chevy Tahoe being used by the NYSP, had no markings identifying it as a police vehicle.
You can read my full story below.
Also, as you can see in the video below, Monday I spoke with New York State Trooper Finney.
I want to say something.
While I have been critical of the New York State Police, the fact of the matter is that if there's one police agency which has for the most part handled themselves professionally over the years, it's the New York State Police.
Again, there's been some incidents, of course, but my point is that the New York State Police is usually more professional than other city and town law enforcement agencies.
In fact, the New York State Police has investigated incidents of misconduct and corruption involving other police agencies.
In the Rochester area, the New York State Police was involved in a high profile corruption scandal involving the Greece, NY Police Department in 2008.
That's when former Greece, NY Police Sgt. Nick Joseph rear ended a stalled vehicle with a pregnant woman inside, nearly killing her, her unborn child, and her boyfriend.
Sgt. Joseph, who was high on cocaine as well as drunk, fled like a coward, but was later arrested, charged, and convicted, thanks in large part to a great investigation by the New York State Police.
The New York State Police investigation also led to other arrests, and convictions of Greece, NY cops including Greece Police Chief Merritt Rahn and Gary Pignato.
Back to Troop E barracks.
In the video below, I ask a very professional and courteous Trooper Feeney about the use of unmarked vehicles.
