Chuck Schwarz was railroaded in the infamous and horrific Abner Louima police brutality incident.
When this story broke, every cop I knew , myself included, laughed it off as a bullshyte allegation against an arresting officer. When it was revealed that it actually happened, cops were disgusted and shocked. Justin Volpe snapped and was obviously mentally ill. His act of brutality would cause mistrust for the entire department and create hell on earth for any cop working that night in the 7-0.
Incident in the 70th Precinct
It started with a mêlée outside a Haitian nightclub and ended with charges of unspeakable police brutality in a bathroom at the Brooklyn precinct once nicknamed Fort Tombstone. Talking to the cops, to investigators, and to family and supporters of the victim, Abner Louima, the author examines evidence of torture so sadistic it shocked the entire nation—and touched off an urban political war.
Chuck was punished by an overzealous prosecution because he would not say what he did not know and he would not lie.
HE WOULD NOT BREAK.
The lunatic cop responsible (Volpe) was found guilty and sentenced to 30 years.
But more cops were needed for sacrifice upon the alter of the court of political correctness and public opinion.
Volpe testified Schwarz was never in the bathroom repeatedly but they were hellbent on making an example of Chuck.
Volpe Repeats That Schwarz Wasn’t There
So began a long ordeal of prison and trials in which this ex-Marine held his ground and did not compromise himself . They would imprison him for “perjury”.
Chuck had many people in his corner. None greater than Steve Dunleavy of the Post
THE TRUTH MUST SET HIM FREE
Steve would write column after column documenting Chuck’s ordeal and keeping him in the public eye.
Chuck was eventually freed in 2007. A complete travesty of justice. He was forced to take a vow of silence in exchange for his freedom.
Chuck Schwarz Freed

9/22/02-Schwarz Takes Plea- Must Be Silent About Innocence Chuck had to take a plea to avoid being railroaded into a long prison sentence. 4 TRIALS!!!!! Where were the great legal minds to condemn this travesty? One attorney on the prosecution’s team (Barry Scheck) used and abused our system to get OJ Simpson off despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
What kind of legal system do we have???
Chuck adamantly maintained his innocence throughout, and the trial (I mean trials) showed much doubt as to his guilt. What was done in the 7-0 bathroom that night was horrendous. But that should not negate a fair trial. Only a NYC cop can be forced to renounce his freedom of speech and his claim of innocence to avoid being railroaded by the courts of the politically correct and public opinion.
Philadelphia police office Daniel Faulkner is another example of how cops are railroaded, even in death!
Check out http://www.danielfaulkner.com in which a celebrity cop killer has been given support and hero worship from the liberal elite and numerous trials for 20 years !! It is one of the most open and shut cases I have ever seen (read the trial transcripts and the 20/20 transcript) and the defense attorneys continue to make up new defenses for every appeal!!

Another travesty of Justice….***Richie was released from prison
Welcome Home Richard Diguglielmo
9-15-18 UPDATE- Richie DiGuglielmo has been granted parole, scheduled release date 01/07/19. Brother & Sister Officers stepped up and helped Richie get released, after being wrongfully imprisoned for 20 years. Police groups like Blue Line Only, were a huge help!
Richard DiGuglielmo: The Facts and the True Story
One day almost ten years ago, a tragic series of events took place in Dobbs Ferry, New York, that would end one person’s life, ruin another man’s life, traumatize two families and shake up a community. There is a well-known version of these events essentially authored–“spun” if you prefer–by Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro. Not surprisingly, since reporters rely on the DA for so much of their information, Pirro’s version of the story was the one portrayed for the most part in the media.
An objective review of the facts, based on police reports, court documents and transcripts, tells a more accurate, truer story. We invite you to make up your own mind, among other ways by imagining that you were Richard D. DiGuglielmo Jr.–“Richie”—an off-duty 11-year veteran of the New York City police department working at his family’s deli in Dobbs Ferry, New York, on October 3, 1996
As a younger lawyer, Loretta Lynch prosecuted New York police officers who sodomized a Haitian immigrant in a precinct bathroom. As attorney general, she’s broadened her focus to go after entire police departments for unconstitutional practices.
