34. "I am also, all these years later, still persona non grata in the NYPD"

"Never mind that, thanks to Sidney Lumetís direction and Al Pacinoís brilliant acting, 'Serpico' ranks No. 40 on the American Film Instituteís list of all-time movie heroes, or that as I travel around the country and the world, police officers often tell me they were inspired to join the force after seeing the movie at an early age.

In the NYPD that means little next to my 40-year-old heresy, as they see it. I still get hate mail from active and retired police officers.

-snip-

A few years ago, after the New York Police Museum refused my guns and other memorabilia, I loaned them to the Italian-American museum right down street from police headquarters, and they invited me to their annual dinner. I didnít know it was planned, but the chief of police from Rome, Italy, was there, and he gave me a plaque. The New York City police officers who were there wouldnít even look at me."


That's just sad. And very telling.

Houston ... I mean New York, you STILL have a problem.
