It sure is disappointing when the people we trust to keep us safe from the dregs of society turn out to be the dregs of society.

Enter New York City police officer/convicted crooked cop Michael Carsey, 31, who was convicted this afternoon of lying under oath in order to get a search warrant for the apartment of Antoine Melville, a drug suspect Carsey and his supervisor, former boy in blue Michael Eiseman, detained illegally during a 2007 stop in Manhattan.

In all, Carsey was convicted of two counts of perjury and one count of offering a false instrument for filing after lying to a judge to obtain a search warrant -- and cover the asses of him and his supervisor for the bogus stop.

"Police officers take an oath to protect and serve, and have a responsibility to uphold the highest standards of their profession," Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance says in a statement. "Failure to do so risks damaging the reputation of their peers and violating the public's trust."

The illegal stop happened on August 20, 2007, when Eiseman and Carsey -- who was fresh out of the Police Academy at the time, and assigned to the NYPD's Impact Response Team, which patrols particularly bad neighborhoods -- stopped Melville at 3333 Broadway. Following the stop, Carsey testified during a search warrant application hearing that Melville admitted that he had drugs in his apartment, which led a judge to issue a search warrant for the place.

The only problem is Melville never said he had anything illegal in his apartment -- the officers made it up so they could get a warrant, which ultimately turned up nothing illegal.

But it didn't end there.

About a year later, during a hearing to suppress evidence the officers found on Melville during the illegal stop, Carsey -- also under oath -- lied again.

Because Carsey and Eiseman lied, the case against Melville was dismissed.

Eiseman, a former sergeant, pleaded guilty in June to one count of perjury and three counts of official misconduct for several bogus stops that took place between August 2007 and the summer of 2008, where he would unlawfully stop and detain civilians, and then direct subordinates to falsify paperwork to justify the stops.

He was sentenced to three months in jail and five years probation.

How many times did this criminal do this? How many have had their homes, lives, destroyed by this scumbag? This goes on all over the country and is covered by immunity for the cops. It's rare that any of them it caught because the corrupt police departments won't release the affidavits that need to be examined to check for lies. The internal affairs investigation is more concerned with the department not getting sued than any real, meaningful accountability, and the unions protect any cop just because they need members, and the way you keep members is by protecting them from the officers own illegal activity.

Corrupt Criminal Cops deserve TWICE the prison sentence that an ordinary citizen would receive for the same crimes !!

The only reason these pigs got caught is they didn't play the game the right way. ALL COPS LYE OFF THEIR ASS TO CONVICT INOCENT PEOPLE AND LET THE TRUE CRIMINAL GO FREE, I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME IN CALIFORNIA, OREGON AND WASHINGTON. The only honest (good) cop is a dead cop!

I'm not sure a cartoon is the best way to illustrate a serious story. It trivializes the whole thing. When I was in high school our paper did an editorial about the legalization of marijuana and I illustrated it with multicolored marijuana leaves but I was 15.

We all do it.  That's what it takes to get the bad guys off the streets.  They were just unlucky and got caught.

Dear Withheld. Read the paper much?. A dude that has a past arrest record for selling drugs and has an AK 47 with cash and rounds in his home was off the streets.  So he wasn't really free until his lawyer told him what to say. Add one lying ADA that tried to save her ass by pinning her screw up on a rookie cop. 

I don't fault you... California, Oregon, and Washington? Maybe you can finally get your life straight in NY.

Quit sucking Mikes dick and admit he is nothing more then a uniformed thug who carries a badge and a gun.

Most NYPD officers are nothing more then ghetto street thugs that terrorize innocent New Yorkers.

Wow, James, looks like your fan club has followed you from Phoenix. Congratulations! 

(For the record, I comment on the Village Voice's Scientology articles with some regularity. Russell Pearce is kind of lower among my priorities.)

I agree with you allover. We must have been in the same court room. I love how an admitted drug dealer with an AK 47 (with rounds), cocaine, cash, and weed in his home and an ADA spin their lies and a rookie cop gets all the heat.

"That's what it takes to get the bad guys off the streets." 

As this was a "stop and frisk to trick the guy into displaying" that the cops tried to parlay into a search of his residence where nothing illegal was found, I assume "bad guys" is defined by you as "someone who wasn't doing anything wrong and was otherwise minding his own business, but looked like an easy collar for newb cops". I feel safer.

There's nothing to convince me that the NYPD is not comprised of a special brand of scum.
