A New Jersey police officer has resigned after he was caught on camera saying he didn’t have to follow the Constitution because the president has decimated it. The video went viral, making national headlines.
As RT reported Thursday, Special Police Officer Richard Recine, a part-time employee of the Borough of Helmetta Police Department, was seen on video saying, “Obama has decimated the friggin’ Constitution, so I don’t give a damn. Because if he doesn’t follow the Constitution we don’t have to.”
The statement was made in response to resident Steve Wronko, who was at the municipal building to serve an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request after being kicked out of the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter earlier in the week.
