A respectful, disciplined cop, who doesn’t trample the rights of individuals, is a great asset to any society. What happens, though, when police training goes from respecting the rights of citizens and morphs into utter apathy towards people? Here’s what happens: law abiding people are taken from their homes and vehicles and are detained. Officers begin to use fake evidence to conduct false arrests just to get information or money, or to fulfill their own power trip. Innocent people spend time behind bars. Glaring evidence of this is noted in the recent arrest of Miss USA Westchester beauty Queen pageant winner Kristy Abreu.

According to pageant winner Abreu, NYPD pulled her and her mom over on their way to her next event. What was thought to be a basic traffic stop turned into a nightmare for the two ladies.
The 19-year-old pageant winner said, “The best way to describe it, we were literally treated like animals – both of us. We showed them valid license, registration, plates,” but she said, “No one would listen.”
