    Undercover NYPD Officers Frame 4 On Drug Charges
    NYPD Investigating Incident, Officers Placed On Modified Duty

    Undercover police officers who arrested four men on drug charges are under investigation after surveillance video proved the men they arrested committed no crime.

    Drug charges against brothers Jose Colon and Maximo Colon, along with two of their friends have been dropped.

    The undercover NYPD officers are seen on video dancing in the street, then attempting to frame four innocent men.

    "I asked police officer why are you arresting me," said Maximo Colon. "Never did I get an answer."

    The investigators swore under oath they bought drugs from the four men. Jose and Maximo colon say that didn't happen.

    "The cops are supposed to help us," said a shaken Jose Colon.

    Defense lawyers say the surveillance cameras proved their clients were framed.

    "It was nauseating," said defense lawyer Rochelle Berliner.

    Two hours of video showed no contact at all between the four men arrested and undercover officers - proof that lead prosecutors to drop charges against the four men, and even declare in court the men did not commit the crime.

    Defense lawyers say it's disturbing but not uncommon.

    "As defense attorneys you know it exists more often than government wants you to believe," said Brad Wolk.

    In the 6 months it took to clear the Colon brothers names, they lost their business and their savings.

    As a result of his ordeal, Maximo Colon has lost trust in police officers.

    The two men are now involved in a civil suit against the city and hope to one day rebuild their lives.

    The NYPD is investigating the officers involved in this incident. Two of the officers are reportedly on modified duty.

    Most LEOs are great people, but when you get a bad one they can really screw people over

    Since since drugs weren't involved, I wonder what particular attribute or behavior of these nice citizens prompted the police to falsely arrest them?

    That is, what personal opinion were the police enforcing by making up charges?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
