Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz
By Davy V.
The Rochester, NY Police Officer who is heard on my video threatening me after I complain to him that the handcuffs felt too tight, after I was falsely arrested while exercising my first amendment right to record, is a loose canon and a liability to the City of Rochester, NY.
Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz, a U.S. Marine sniper who has served tours in Iraq, apparently thinks he is still in Fallujah.
In one of several disturbing Facebook posts, the veteran Rochester, NY cop comments that he'd love to shoot minorities from the top of an inner city high rise.
Responding to a comment praising a photo which he posted on his Facebook page, where he is seen holding a U.S. military assault rifle, in Iraq, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz writes:
"If I could just take it to the roof of 100 Borinquen Plaza I could take out every drug spot from Fight village to Norton st.!"
Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz
For my readers not familiar with Rochester, NY, Borinquen Plaza, located on the corner of North Clinton Ave., and Upper Falls Blvd. in Rochester, is a low income housing project which includes a 10-story high-rise called Los Flamboyanes, or "Los Flambos" for short.
North Clinton Avenue or "La Avenida", is a heavily populated Latino section of Rochester.
Fight Village is another low income housing project on North Clinton Ave., where the residents are primarily African-American.
In essence, with his post, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz is saying he'd love to sniper Blacks and Latinos.
But that's not the only disturbing Facebook post by Officer Renz.
In another Facebook post Rochester Police Officer Chris Renz shares a link for a video about street choke holds, titled "SIX STREET CHOKES EVERYONE SHOULD MASTER"
Specifically "Bamboo Choke, T-Shirt Choke, Hood Choke, Sleeve Choke, Houdini Choke, Baseball Choke."
Officer Renz captions each post: "Sleepy time"
Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz's posts, where he seems to get off on violence, and killing, are especially disturbing given the fact that he's a police officer.
Choke holds are illegal and banned by most police agencies including the Rochester, NY Police Department.
In fact, at a recent news conference, stNdibg next to Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren, Rochester, NY Police Chief Michael Ciminelli denounced the use of choke holds, in light of the recent suspension of a 27-year veteran Rochester, NY Police Officer who was suspended after bodycam video showed him choking a handcuffed man in Rochester's East End nightclub district.
The FBI has launched an investigation into that incident.
But there's more.
In another Facebook post, RPD Officer Chris Renz once again seems obsessed with violence.
Referring to a military assault rifle, Officer Renz writes:
"its def not the best in accuracy dept.. but for warfighting...it fucks shit up.... I know one HaDJI canelfucket who will disagree....oh wait he cant cuz I blew him away....god I loved shooting people with that thing."
Officer Renz writes: "I feel like slipping a sandbag over someones head.....I miss that."
In the post below, Rochester, NY Police Officer
Chris Renz referring to protesters in Rochester, posted a photo of a gun magazine with the caption:
"Celebrating Veterans day!!! But extra prepared for socialist anarchists!"
Speaking of body cams, in another Facebook post, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz writes:
"Pancoe said I wasn't using my bodycam enuff... When I get warmed up he is gunna regret mentioning it lol"
"Pancoe" is Rochester, NY Police Sgt. Timothy Pancoe, Officer Chris Renz's superior.
Throughout his Facebook timeline, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz continues a disturbing pattern of his obsession with violence and glorifying killing.
In one post Officer Renz writes:
"People are pissing me off..the old crazy Renz is coming back.. so game on..."
A Facebook replies to that comment with: "Not the SAW!!"
"SAW" stands for Squad Automatic Weapon.
It's an M249 military weapon.
Basically, a light machine gun.
Officer Renz replies:
"And the grenade necklace. Just cause apparently. I don't give a fuck..."
During a March 26th search and rescue for a man wanted by police, who had gone into the Genesee River, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz, who responded to the call, was posting comments on social media during the rescue, posting "It's over.....There is no escape..."
During the search and rescue, Rochester, NY Police Officer Renz also posted the comments below, on which included a photo he took of an RPD assault rifle, and others referring to the man in the river as an insurgent, and another comment laughing at the fact that the man was in the cold river water, and that he was "frozen" when the Rochester, NY Fire Department rescued him.
In one Facebook post, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz posts a photo of a dismembered head and spine in Iraq with the caption: "Just like that fatality in MORTAL KOMBAT!!!"
I tried reaching out to Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren regarding not only my case where I was falsely arrested by Rochester, NY Police Officer Joel Hasper and Chris Renz, but also to let her know about Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz's disturbing posts and violent behavior.
Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren never returned multiple messages which I left with her secretary.
I did speak with Rochester, NY City Council President Loretta Scott, who took time out to meet with me.
Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren, who is up for reelection, has recently denounced rogue behavior by members of the Rochester, NY Police Department.
Again, Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz is a danger and a liability to the City of Rochester, NY.
I want to clear about something:
I am thankful for our military.
The same men and women who have sacrificed their lives for all of us.
Our soldiers are heroes.
Many of them don't return home.
But Officer Renz's comments as a U.S. Marine are disgusting.
I don't know Officer Renz personally.
Perhaps he is traumatized and suffers from PTSD like many of our veterans do.
I don't know.
But I do know that someone with this mentality, someone who has taken a sworn oath to serve and protect a diverse community, and someone who is obsessed with violence and killing, is unacceptable.
And I know that someone this disturbed SHOULD NOT be a police officer.
Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren, you need to take action.
It is only a matter of time begure Rochester, NY Police Officer Chris Renz kills an innocent person.
I will be updating this piece.
