Samuel Farina named new Fairport Police Chief



Congratulations to the NYAHN president, Sam Farina, on his new appointment.

Samuel Farina named new Fairport Police Chief

A former Rochester police commander who has also been with the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Monroe County Sheriff's Office on Monday was named chief of the Fairport Police Department.
Samuel Farina was sworn in during a short ceremony at 7:30 p.m. at Village Hall, 31 S. Main Street.
Fairport Mayor Fritz May said Farina's extensive experience made him the ideal candidate for the police department's top spot.
"He's just done a gazillion things," May said. "He's a competent leader and everyone we spoke with spoke very highly of him. We are sure he's going to come in and make a smooth transition."

      It took FOUR showers and it was not until THE NEXT MORNING to finally not see dirt come out from some orifice of my body. 😜

  2. One of the most disturbing and frustrating things I've noticed in my 20-plus years as an activist, writer, filmmaker, and most recently, blogger, exposing police misconduct and corruption, is just how broken the legal system is, especially when it comes to dirty cops.

    Primarily the way that rogue, corrupt cops, IF and WHEN they're terminated or forced to resign from their police departments, almost always end up being hired by another law enforcement agency.

    Free to once again prey on innocent citizens.

    Not much different than what predicate felons do.

    The only difference being that unlike predicate felons, most rogue, dirty, corrupt cops are never charged with any crimes.

    In fact, these cops know all too well that the "Good Ol' Boys Club" which is the law enforcement profession, will no doubt afford them new opportunities.

    They know that regardless of what they've done, the law enforcement community is a very tight knit group, which takes care of their own.

    They know that they'll soon land another job as a police officer.

    Take, for example, former Rochester, NY Police Commander Sam Farina.

    Tuesday evening, in a small ceremony, Sam Farina was sworn in as the new police chief of the Fairport, NY Police Department.

    Fairport Mayor Fritz May lauded his new police chief.

    "He's a competent leader, and everyone we spoke to spoke very highly of him," Fritz said.

    And while many of you good folks in the beautiful Village of Fairport, NY, commonly referred to as the "Crown Jewel of the Erie Canal", may think that Sam Farina is a stand up cop, you're sadly mistaken.

    Fairport Mayor Fritz May lied to you.



    On a beautiful May Spring night in 2011, Rochester, NY resident Emily Good stepped outside of her Aldine Street home on Rochester's west side, and saw several Rochester, NY Police officers detaining and searching a black motorist.

    Aware of the well known racial profiling pattern and practice which Rochester, NY Police officers subscribe to, and having witnessed white RPD officers harassing black motorists countless times in front of her home, Emily Good exercised her first amendment right, and began video recording Rochester Police officer Mario Masic and his fellow officers.

    But RPD officer Mario Masic didn't like that Emily Good was video recording him.

    And he could care less about her constitutional right to record.

    Masic threatened Good and gave her an ultimatum.

    Go in the house, or be arrested.

    Just a few minutes later, Masic made good on his threat and Emily Good found herself in handcuffs, in the back of a Rochester Police cruiser.

    Emily Good's video of RPD officer Mario Masic violating her constitutional rights, by arresting her for video recording him went viral, and put the city of Rochester, NY, and the Rochester Police department under an international spotlight.

    Not long after Good's video had been viewed throughout the world, Rochester, NY Police department West
    Division Commander Sam Farina put together a plan.

    Upset about the video, Farina knew just how to retaliate against Good.

    Shortly after Rochester's mainstream news media outlets reported about a support meeting which was being held by supporters of Emily Good, including myself, RPD Commander Sam Farina ordered several RPD officers to show up at that support meeting and target Good's supporters.

    Commander Farina ordered his cops to do anything they could to disrupt that meeting.
