Two Brooklyn cops sideswiped a parked SUV, then arrested a man sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, accusing him of damaging their car, a suit charges.
And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.
Robert Jackson, 31, told The Post his nightmare began when a police car heading the wrong way on one-way Watkins Street in Brownsville scraped against a parked Ford Explorer, which belongs to his girlfriend.
Jackson, a maintenance worker, said he was sitting in the legally parked car outside of his apartment when the accident happened. He got out of the vehicle and walked up to the officers.
“I was smiling, like, ‘How’d you run into me?’ ” he recalled. “Then the cop said, ‘Dude, you ran into me.’ ”
“I just wanted them to fix the damage and apologize, but it didn’t turn out that way,” Jackson said. “They were trying to cover it up.”
At that point, things got even more surreal.
The two cops checked the block for surveillance cameras before arresting him for destruction of city property, according to the lawsuit filed by Jackson in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
“When they thought no cameras were on. I saw their gloves go on, and that’s when I was arrested,” Jackson said.
But fortunately for Jackson, the officers, Christopher Oliver and Shazad Shigri, missed one camera on the home of one of his neighbors, Jackson said.
In case you were ever wondering just how flagrant the NYPD is
All cops and cop cars should be outfitted with audio and video recording devises that are impossible to turn off until the officer clocks out. If they attempt to block the video feed, they are fired. That is the only solution I can come up with to lower the amount of bullshit like this from happening. Unbelievable.
There is no such thing as a good cop.

kaydone asked: I'm Kaiden (or Kadu). My favorite color would be blue, second favorite would be burnt orange. They are the happiest colors I've been able to feel so far. I ship Draco with like everyone, mainly Ron though. My favorite ice cream is a tie between superman, and this one toffee / caramel one. I also have 4 cats. c:

I like your color choice. Always liked those two together. I would be able to give my input on the ship, but hey, I’m the only person on Tumblr who doesn’t know a damn thing about HP. :c
