Cop's Voicemail Rant Threatening To Ticket Teachers Deemed "Justified"

Sgt. Craig Lynch in action earlier this year.

You have to understand, THE POLICE ARE NOT AND NEVER WILL BE ON YOUR SIDE.

An excerpt from NorthNewJersey: A borough officer has been cleared of wrongdoing after he was recorded threatening to ticket teachers and boasting there was nothing school officials could do about it during a profanity-laden rant. 

Sgt. Craig Lynch left the recording, which is expected to be addressed by the Board of Education during a special meeting tonight, when he accidentally dialed a school district phone line with his cellphone after he left the Steen Elementary School principal's office in August, according to district officials.

"[Expletive] you and the school superintendent and your [expletive] Ph.D. and the entire school district," he says in the recording. "[Expletive] you. You can't touch me. You're not my [expletive] boss. [Expletive] you."

In the recording, which was obtained by The Record and NorthJersey.com through a public records request, Lynch is heard threatening to stand outside the school giving tickets to every teacher who pulls out of the parking lot.

During the four-minute rant, punctuated with curse words, the officer warns that the district does not want to get into a fight with the police.

“You’re not going to win a battle with the police,” he says. “You’re not going to win. That’s a losing battle every time.”

Another pet peeve of mine, we don't know what set him off. We're never told what caused the problem in the first place. Like the road rage videos, yeah it's people going off the deep end, but something caused it. The people doing the recording act all innocent like they were just minding their own business when suddenly.....

Shelworth Cop apologist eh?

Well ok fine, lets say the cop's wife left him, his dog died, and his mom died of cancer, and all this prompted him to lose his shit.  OK, no problem, lets give him a pass.

What you CANNOT give a pass to, is the other cops ignoring this horrible unprofessional breach of trust with the public by saying his actions were justified.

Hopefully you never run afoul of some dirty cop bullshit, cause people like you will say "something had to have caused the cop to act that way"

Shelworth I was robbed, shot down in my own living room.

Police showed up and pointed a gun in my face, while i was lying there with a gunshot wound.  Yeah, calling the cops, HUGE help.  I literally begged folks to not call the cops, because i thought they might come and finish me off.  Thankfully they didn't.

"Lynch, who often worked with students in the district leading anti-bullying and anti-drug programs"

Fuck You buddy.  Welcome to the world of Social Justice, and Teachers in America have the "long arm" of that law.  You DON'T threaten teachers, PERIOD.  Prepare for retirement.

How is this not wrong doing? Hes Literally threatening to use unlawful force, because apparently one of his buddies didnt get hired by the district. Seems like everyone involved needs to be investigated. and Lynch needs to be convicted for the crime he both admits to and evidence shows.

The purpose of a police force is to control the population, not to seek justice. 
Laughingly the courts are supposed to find justice.
The cops are there to stop you from doing something or to pin something on you. 
Don't trust them.

Gerry1of1 In a perfect world, they would promote peace and order and act as the fact gathering arm of the legal system. Let me know when the world is perfect and I can feel safe to go outside again.
