Two Cops Face Rape, Burglary Charges

Prosecutors say two New York City police officers will face charges of rape, burglary and evidence tampering in connection with an attack on a Manhattan woman.

Officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata are accused of assaulting an intoxicated woman they had escorted home in December.

The officers were initially responding to a 911 call from a taxi driver complaining that the woman had gotten stick in his cab.

The officers are also charged with official misconduct. Moreno faces an additional drug possession charge.

They could get up to 25 years in prison. Lawyers for the two men say they are innocent.

    I find it incredible that people are ready to hang police officers based on this little information. As in all cases these men are nothing more than accused! I am quite sure there is more to the story than meets the eye. If they are guilty, so be it. They should be punished to the full extent of the law. According to the information on this site it would be hard to convict anyone without prejudice.

    Yet if the Democrats have thier way, only these guys will have guns. Then they can rob and rape all they want. No one would have the power to resist them.Every gun owner should support the NRA if you want to keep your guns.
