More Philly Police Officers Arrested

By Wyatt Earp | October 5, 2010

This is just fan-freakin’-tastic! Less than a week after one Philadelphia police officer “retires” after being found with a card counter in a casino, two more idiots were arrested for stealing cash and drugs from a “drug dealer.”

Sadly, the drug dealer in question was an undercover Internal Affairs officer.

I have to admit, this story really pisses me off, and be forewarned, I am about to let loose with some sentence enhancers. Apparently, the new fad is for officers to rob drug dealers. I guess they justify their actions by telling themselves the dealers are the bad guys. Well guess what? This isn’t the fucking Boondock Saints, and police officers don’t get a license to do whatever the fuck they want because the victim is a piece of shit!

There are thousands of good cops in this city, and a few morons ruin the reputations of every one of us. I’m getting pretty fucking sick and tired of it all.

The bottom line is this: if you live in Philadelphia, you can kill, steal, and betray the public trust every day of the week. You can be the biggest toad in town or the most corrupt politician ever elected and it won’t matter. Why not? Because a day after that person fucks up, some jackass police officer will fuck up much, much worse.

Two Philadelphia police officers are under arrest for stealing drugs and cash from an undercover officer posing as a drug dealer. Sources indicate that investigators set up an undercover operation on Monday after being tipped off that the officers may be stealing money and drugs from suspects.

The two arrested officers are identified as Sean Alivera, 31, and Christopher Luciano, 23. They were taken into custody at the 25th District headquarters and charged with robbery, conspiracy, kidnapping, and other offenses. Alivera is a ten-year veteran of the force; Luciano is a three-year veteran.

Investigators say the pair stole 20 pounds of marijuana, with a street value of $24,000, and about $3,000 in cash from the undercover state agent who was taking part in the sting. The cash was recovered but the drugs were not.

Wonder where the drugs went? My guess is that these assholes either used them or sold them to make a few extra dollars. Good job, dickheads. Throw away your career, life, and freedom for a couple thousand dollars. You’ll enjoy federal-pound-you-in-the-ass prison, especially when the biggest, baddest inmates find out you’re former cops.

Oh, and a note for the trolls that always show up on these posts claiming every police officer cheats, steals, and is corrupt as the day is long. Go fuck yourself. Every single time someone in my department gets fired, locked up, or both, you read about here almost immediately. I don’t make excuses for them and I don’t ignore the story or bury it on an overnight post. I expose these fuckers with pleasure, because they need to be thrown in prison for life.

    This is what happen when the party of ass’s do not do their jobs the right way. The quota system.

    Medic Bob – Lot of blame to go around. There are detectives who are supposed to do thorough background investigations on these jerkasses. They go to work, collect a check, and go home. Of course, when they find someone that raises a red flag, the department has them push them through anyway.

    This could have been 10 times more tragic..what if the State agent had thought he had to defend his life and had killled one or both of them or they him. I pray those former officers don’t have families because they pretty much flushed the toilet on them too if they do. And all for what……..?

    The thing that pisses me off is that these assholes perpetuate the stereotype of heavy handed, oppressive, and menacing, dirty officers. Like it wasn’t bad enough that movies, songs and television already demonize law enforcement.

    This is not a new fad. It has happened all over the country for years. Now do most officers do it? No, only a stupid few.

    The baddman is as the baddman does. Duhkeys and illaphants have nothing to do with it. Discipline and consequences do. The two shamblers pictured above are less the problem than a symptom thereof.

    Wyatt: I am sorry this continues to happen within the PFD. As Jack Webb said once as Sgt. Joe Friday “One bad cop puts the spotlight on all Cops.” Sad but still true.

    My wife works as a $9.00 an hour Part Time DayCare provider at our Park District before she could work one day there she had to go through the following:

    1) Fingerprint check
    2) Drug Test
    3) Thorough Background screening

    She had to wait almost three weeks for all of the checks and tests to come back before she could be one minute with the kids. For a $9.00 Hour PT Job?

    Second story then I will shut up. I worked with a woman about 11 years ago who’s husband applied for the Chicago Police Department. He got to the part where he was now talking with the Psychiatrist or Counselor. He was asked if he was ever involved in something where the police had to get involved. He said that 10 years before he got into a fight with a drunk because he was hitting on his girlfriend (who is now is wife) and wouldn’t leave her alone. It was a fistfight, blood was drawn and the police were called. The police took both of them to jail and then released my friend’s husband after an hour saying that the drunk had instigated the fight.

    He was then told thanks, but no thanks by the CPD.

    “He was then told thanks, but no thanks by the CPD”.

    He probably didn’t have the right attitude, such as not paying off some Politician. More vets are probably turned down by the CPD for psych reasons. If they took the vets thed’d have too many highly qualified recruits.

    Now the trolls will be out in force.

    ZZZZZ to me. It’s a big police force and there are few bad apples of course.

    Btw your favorite paper will make a big deal of this and I predict it will downplay the travesty when Ofc Pawloski’s killer does not get the death penalty.

    They can get matching prison tats with a rusty paper clip for all I care. Luciano is one purdy boy. He’ll need a volunteer to hold the vaseline for him.

  11. Robbie Says:

    There’s ALWAYS bad apples in the bunch, it goes for families too – my husband’s brother is a fuck up as is my sister – there is the same rule for co-worker’s cops or not. C’est La Vie, some people are just smacked assess

  12. Robert Says:

    DAMN. I am going to ask a couple questions though. What are the drug testing policies in your dept” Do cops get tested randomly or at all?

    Most NORMAL folks know that the vast majority of Blues are straight up. BUT I think it’s going to get worse not better. The reason? Education, morals, the line between right and wrong are now blurred due to the constant “Excuse” train that rolls through our schools and system.

    YOU and I and many others know what they did was dead wrong. Those that see this as something else need to have their head examined.

    Back in the day, you saw a person that drove a nice car, had money, lived in a big house you would say “One day I’ll have that if I work hard” NOW it’s all the rage to say “He shouldn’t have that stuff all by himself, he needs to share it with me”

    Jon – For some quick, easy cash. Idiocy.

    DL474 – It’s not fun seeing what a scumbag you are in the media every day. It’s worse when the stories are true.

    Harp1034 – And every one of them should be locked away for life, IMO.

    Rizzo’s Ghost – Agreed. No political crap in this case. Two morons who did something moronic.

    Ferrell – And he would have probably been a very good police officer. But the thug with the juvie record is welcomed in big cities. Sad.

    LDIV – Yeah, because vets aren’t good choices for law enforcement. /Face palm.

    AJ – Absolutely. I love how that prick pled not guilty. I know why he did, but it’s still a disgrace. He did it, end of story.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Looks like T-Bag will soon have a new fish.

    Robbie – Our smacked asses just make more publicized fuck ups.

    Robert – We’re randomly tested. When I was in the 24th, I was tested five times in one year. It got so bad that the tester knew my by sight. Some go for months without a test. Freaky.

    Of course, the jackass DA was all on top of this. We’re talking about a publicity hound of the first order here. Go after real scumbuckets with the same vigor, Williams, then talk to me.

    I was just thinking about all the checks I have had to go through recently. And am still waiting on some even though it is a repeat.

    Background checks for:
    Cub Scout Den Leader
    Volunteer at a free clinic
    Board of Directors for a battered woman’s shelter
    Girl Scouts (simply because I am there and don’t just drop my daughter off.)

    Finger Printing for the free clinic and the shelter

    Drug testing for the free clinic

    The finger printing and drug testing is yet to be done. Those will happen next week and the week after respectively.

    How is it that I have to go through a criminal background check just to be able to sit in the same room with a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds (not even involved in the troop, just sitting there) and there are officers who are pushed through regardless of what their checks show? It makes no sense to me.

    It also ticks me off to no end that a few bad apples suddenly make all cops evil, sadistic bastards (pardon my language) in the eyes of the public.

    Wow, I’ve been reading this blog every day for a while now and this is the first time I’ve seen you actually cuss.

  17. Wyatt Earp Says:

    Bob – This is the guy who wants an independent witness before prosecuting domestic assault cases. Until someone dies, then he’ll blame us.

    Kim – A lot of it is for quotas, just like a lot of professions nowadays.

    Kaveman – Sorry, but this brings it out in me. Still a cuss-free zone here, though.

    As bad as all of these recent arrests and charges are, I’m glad that these folks are being caught one way or another.

    I’m sorry you have idiots that tarnish such a noble profession and who make your job that much harder.

    You ran out of duct tape again, didn’t ya? I’ll send some of the tie die tape I saw at Target the other day.

    The Left’s idea of ideal law enforcement officers.
    I feel sorry for ya, there Wyatt.

    BTW. Hernia surgery on the 18th. Did it at work three weeks ago. Which led to some Blood Pressure issues, like a peak of 170 over 110. It is now down to the upper 130s over the low 80s.

    Wyatt – My condolences to you and the other decent cops on the Philly Force. I know Murphy’s Law of Unequal Distribution will apply, but try to keep this in perspective: the majority of your associates are good men and women. Be proud to be one of them.

    Stay safe.

    Sadly these morons will get all of the press coverage.
    But a officer does some thing heroic they will be ignored by the press.

    Damn shame!

    I’ve known some bad cops. They definitely are known by their brother cops, sometimes cops look the other way when its another cop! This should have been handled in house!

  24. Wyatt Earp Says:

    RT – It’s bad that they’re out there, but you’re right; at least we’re snagging them.

    Code Monkey – Not necessary. Skull is in a million pieces on the floor.

    Glenn – Good luck! I have to get an ultrasound the same day for the back of my head. Possibly cyst.

    Robert B. – Thanks. It’s a tough job, made tougher b y people like this.

    Rick – Especially in this town.

    Danny – Not that type of department anymore. There was a detective in my division that excused Luciano, saying, “He was just following his partner’s lead.”

    I needed duct tape for that.

    Whatever happened to the “good old days”, when a couple of officers rolled a dealer, took his drugs and dumped them in the street IN FRONT of him…and THEN helped him up a few times (because he fell down a LOT) into the meat wagon and took him for a “bounce” to the Roundhouse via DELAWARE AVE (with no cuffs on the bar)?
    Now THAT wasn’t BAD policing…it was called “wising up the wiseguys”.

    I miss THOSE days.


    And YES, call those out that DESERVE it…it’s NOT snitching…it’s protecting the INTEGRITY of the entire damn PPD…period!

    Stay strong & roll safe out there.
