Man Sodomized by Cop Sues for $225 Million
Michael Mineo, the guy who allegedly got a police baton stuck up his ass by a cop, is suing the city for $220 million. Mineo, being a marginal character, was little credited by press and powers-that-be ("A Varied, Troubled Past May Affect Credibility" -- New York Times) until investigators sweated a transit cop who witnessed the incident and confirmed Mineo's story that Officer Richard Kern had sodomized him, for which Kern was indicted by a grand jury.
The cops and cop fans at Thee Rant remain unsympathetic. "Nice wear the sweatshirt with the hood backwards to hide the tatoos on the neck," says 3qtrs. "This guy is no stranger to having balls on his chin."
