When I was but a lad in my 20’s I wanted to be a cop. I had cops as friends, I have cops as relatives, and I wanted to make a difference. However, two things prevented me from doing so. One, I didn’t possess the physical prowess it took to pass the physical test and two, I heard too many stories of guys who were just in it to collect a paycheck or worse. This one of the stories about worse.
37-year-old Glen Smokler was a 13-year-veteran of the NYPD. He was arrested this past Wednesday and uncovered as a major marijuana dealer. He allegedly belonged to a ring that smuggled millions of dollars in reefer from Canada to Long Island. Police were tipped off when someone reported that Smokler robbed from the ring leaders.
Apparently, he never figured that even criminals call the cops sometimes.
