Update: Utica Police Allegedly Plant Evidence In Suspect’s Car

officer Update: Utica Police Allegedly Plant Evidence In Suspects Car

Utica police pull over suspect couple


Update: Utica’s police force claim that the entire video shows that the evidence was taking off the body of the suspect before it was thrown in the car by the officers. Why they would do this however, is anyone’s guess. Longer video has been added below.

Upstate New York’s finest have been allegedly caught on tape trying to plant drugs on an African-American couple that was pulled early last year.

The Utica police, who are identified in the video as Officers Palladino and Padulla, then search the car. It appears (from the video) that they can’t find anything, which is when one of the officers pulls out a small baggy from his pocket, places it in the car, and then reappears moments later holding the same bag out in front of him as apparent evidence.

Long video:

Perhaps this video is a fake, because it was put up last February and only has 310 views. Still, it doesn’t look very good for the officers involved.

    sorry, his body language (the driver)… does not look like a man who just had the cops find weed …or whatever in his pocket.  Drugs were planted… and every possession case in the history of the officer’s career must now be thrown out with apologies from the courts…

    The truth is a lot more boring than the conspiracy video.  Police often
    put evidence in their pockets when they find it on suspects, because
    they need their hands for other things and it is more efficient than
    putting it on top of their heads or some other silly alternative.

    The
    Full 30 min video very clearly shows police finding bags of drugs on
    the suspect.  it also shows them using the hands that had held those
    drugs to look in additional pockets for more drugs.  The drugs they
    found were placed somewhere and they were not on top of the policemen’s
    heads, so the police had to have put them somewhere out of view.  The
    police say they put them in their pockets, the full video clearly
    supports that claim.

    But who wants the truth when BS is a lot more sexy and interesting.
