Retired cop defends suspended Eastchester officer

A retired Eastchester police detective is coming to the defense of an officer who has been suspended without pay since allegedly issuing false tickets over the summer.

Retired Detective Louis Suarez calls it abuse that Officer Ramon Rosado has not been given a hearing regarding his suspension.

Rosado was suspended without pay in July for allegedly making a false arrest, an arrest that he insists he was forced to make. He believes he is being retaliated against for a $20 million discrimination lawsuit against the department. Eastchester Police Chief Timothy Bonci calls the claim bogus.
