Yep... A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words.

By Davy V.
On-duty Rochester, NY Police officers on rooftop,
goofing off on tax payer time.

And since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will keep this short...

On a recent night, in Rochester, NY, RPD officer Eliud Rodriguez, who is also a professional photographer, decided there were better things to do than patrol the streets.

So he called 8 of his fellow RPD brothers and told to him to meet him on a building rooftop in downtown Rochester to take pictures.

On tax payers time.

In 2010, Rochester, NY Police officer Eliud Rodriguez's base salary was $69,100.12.

Rodriguez made an additional $39, 614.00 in overtime, and $2, 510.00 in compensatory pay.

In total, Rodriguez made $111,224.16

Must be nice to snap photos of your fellow officers 'Kung Fu Fighting', on duty, on a building roof-top, while the taxpayers pay you in overtime alone, more than many people make in a year.

I called City of Rochester Mayor Thomas Richards to see what he has to say about this.

Update: I spoke with Rochester, NY Police Spokesperson Sgt. Justin Collins, who informed me that all of the officers in the photo were on lunch break.

Sgt. Collins also added that the photo is from 2009.

Note: Rochester, NY Police officer Eliud Rodriguez is one of 7 RPD officers who executed
Israel "Izzy" Andino, a mentally-ill young man this past June.
