Former Officer Sues NYPD, Claims He Was Fired for Conservative ‘MAGA’ Ideals

Published on

Apparently freedom of speech is no longer a constitutional right when it comes to your 9-5 job. I’ve heard countless stories over the past couple of years from friends and neighbors that aren’t allowed to so much as weigh in with their political opinions, let alone put down the other side.

Looks like the NYPD follows similar guidelines. A former New York City police officer says he was fired because of his conservative political views and his association with Roger Stone, a former adviser to former President Donald Trump.

According to Newsmax, Salvatore Greco is suing the NYPD, claiming the department and Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell violated his First Amendment rights when they terminated him for supporting “Making America Great Again” ideals, WPIX reported.

Greco was at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and was filmed with Stone and Kristin Davis, who’s known as the “Manhattan Madame” and was convicted of prostitution.

The former police officer was not accused of doing anything illegal or violent at the Capitol, a lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court said.

“The action taken against me has cost me my reputation, my job, and my life savings,” Greco said in a statement, WPIX reported.

Greco admitted he has “familial” and “political” ties to Stone and Davis, and also supports right-wing groups the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers, the suit said.

“Unfortunately, Mr. Greco’s case is not unusual in that the department has been engaging in these sorts of ‘political viewpoint’ hit jobs for more than forty (40) years. With these legal claims, Mr. Greco intends to shed light on the institutional problem and hold the city and the other defendants accountable for these actions,” lawyer Eric Sanders said in a statement, WPIX reported.

Per Newsmax, The suit alleges that NYPD Internal Affairs in January 2021 received an anonymous letter saying Greco and another cop attended the Capitol attack and that “these officers want to have a civil war in America.”

NYPD then launched a probe and reviewed Greco’s phone, social media, and other personal accounts. Departmental charges were filed in April, according to the filing.

An attorney representing Greco claimed during his departmental trial that the police used an “illegal” subpoena to obtain his phone records.
