Brickbat: One Bad Apple


Police car
Redwood8 /

When Edison, New Jersey, police officer Paul Pappas was caught in full uniform, on duty, and out of his jurisdiction slashing the tires of his former girlfriend's car, it quickly expanded into a department-wide investigation that include allegations of steroid use, officers illegally running license plates, and officers getting paid for no-show jobs. Four other officers have been charged so far, and local media report that as many as 20 officers could be involved.
