High-Ranking NYPD Officers Demoted After Submitting Fake COVID-19 Injection Cards


Two high-ranking NYPD officers got busted of uploading fake COVID-19 injection cards into the department’s system.

The lieutenant and captain have been stripped of their shields and guns after an internal investigation discovered the fraudulent paperwork.

In response, the NYPD officers were demoted to desk duty.

The New York Post noted:

Lieutenant Joseph Marsella and Captain Desmond Morales were placed on modified duty Tuesday for allegedly trying to evade the citywide vaccine mandate by submitting the bogus paperwork into the department’s system, police sources said.

“There’s two modified right now,” a high-ranking police source said. “There’s numerous people being summonsed by the Attorney General and FBI.”

Marsella works in the 72nd Precinct and joined the department in 2008.

Morales joined the force in 2000 and works in Brooklyn. It wasn’t clear what precinct or unit he’s part of.

Both will lose their guns and shields, the sources said.

“I know he’s not the only one,” another source said of Morales. “But I don’t know how many.”

A spokesman for the NYPD confirmed that Internal Affairs had launched a probe and the two cops had been stripped of their badge and gun and assigned to desk duty.

On October 29th, NYPD and other municipal workers were placed on unpaid leave for not showing proof of COVID-19 inoculation.

Thousands of NYPD officers sought a medical or religious exemption from Mayor De Blasio’s COVID-19 jab mandate.

Officers that applied for an exemption could remain on the job until their application was approved or denied.

The police union representing NYPD officers sued the city and vowed to fight the tyrannical mandate from the mayor’s office.

Oddly enough, the NYPD has aggressively enforced the same COVID-19 jab mandate their union vowed to fight.

Just this week, 10 NYC anti-mandate activists were arrested by NYPD officers for attempting to legally patronize Cheesecake Factory and Applebee’s.

Does NYPD want their cake and eat it too?

Do they have zero difficulties enforcing the illegal COVID-19 jab mandates on law-abiding citizens while not wanting it applied to their officers?
