Reminiscent of the federal political persecution of January 6th protesters that has swept the nation, the NYPD has taken it upon themselves to persecute one of their own.
In a dreary trial room at 1 Police Plaza, Lower Manhattan, NYPD Police Officer Sal Greco is currently being tried in an internal Disciplinary Hearing for the crime of associating with Roger Stone.

“It’s a classic case of guilt by association,” said Roger Stone, who was present in NYC for the hearing.
Greco, a 14 year veteran NYPD officer, is at risk of losing his job as an NYPD police officer and his pension for the crime of befriending Roger Stone. According to an NYPD spokesperson, police officers are not allowed to associate with convicted felons.
Clearly, the NYPD does not understand that Roger Stone was pardoned by President Trump in 2020 for all 7 of his felony charges.
“Roger was a victim of a corrupt and illegal Witch Hunt, one which will go down as the greatest political crime in history. He can sleep well at night!” President Trump wrote in a post after pardoning Stone for all convictions.
“Stone is technically no longer a felon,” said Ryan. “He was pardoned by President Trump. Apparently, the NYPD does not respect a Presidential Pardon, a power granted to the President in Article 2 of United States Constitution. Especially if it was a pardon issued by President Trump.”
Greco has been accused of hanging out with Stone on Jan. 6 and being photographed outside the Willard InterContinental Hotel with Stone and a few members of the Oath Keepers. He is also accused of working as Stone’s security, although there is no record of payment to Greco for such services.
Greco’s internal NYPD charges include “conduct prejudicial to the good order and efficiency of the department”.
This past Wednesday, an NYPD Internal Affairs officer took the stand for the majority of the day. His testimony predominantly consisted of presenting the judge with dozens of photos taken from social media of Greco in the presence of Roger Stone, as well as members of the Proud Boys and the Oathkeepers on January 6th and other events he attended.
A piece of evidence in the case against Greco is a statement from FBI informant Joshua James, an Oath Keeper who is cooperating with the government in its ongoing investigation into January 6th. James cooperation is described as “a major win for the Justice Department” as the witch hunt continues to convict as many Trump supporters as possible. According to the NYPD, James described Greco as “part of Stone’s security team”.
“James’ testimony is not credible,” said Tina Ryan of Citizens Against Political Persecution. “Everyone knows that if you work with the Feds you will say anything they ask of you in exchange for a lenient sentence.”

According to Stone, Greco is a hero who is being persecuted by the NYPD in a two-tiered justice system. (See his full statement here.)
“The entire case appears to be one of ‘Guilt By Association’”, said Stone. “Sal Greco is a hero. Here is is an officer with a fourteen year unblemished record of serving the people of New York in some one the most dangerous precincts in the country in the graveyard shift…and his repayment is to take away his pension that he has paid into for fourteen years?”
“He is essentially being considered for termination and loss of his pension simply because he as a supporter of President Trump and a friend of mine. He has never provided security for me, he is my friend. Yes, he was with me on January 5th. Neither one of us was at the Capitol on January 6th, nor do we know anything about it.”

Marq Claxton, director of the Black Law Enforcement Alliance, said the actions against Greco were “late but appropriate and necessary.”
“It is imperative that the department holds him accountable if any of his actions contributed to or supported the Jan. 6 insurrection or the organizers of the event,” said Claxton, a retired NYPD detective. “Because Capitol police officers were seriously injured and some died, the larger law enforcement community expects full accountability. P.O. Greco’s NYPD colleagues deserve assurances that his allegiance is to the rule of law and he can be trusted to operate accordingly.”
“NYPD wants to fire a good cop with an unblemished record for befriending Roger Stone and being pictured with him on January 6th,” said Ryan of Citizens Against Political Persecution. “But then you have Capitol Police officers and DC Metro Police who killed Trump supporters on January 6th that are not being discipled! Talk about a two-tiered justice system even within the police forces.”
“In the midst of a crime wave, we are spending precious police resources to investigate and try to prove that Officer Salvatore Greco in an unpaid capacity socialized with Trump Adviser and “No Longer A Felon” Roger Stone,” said Newsmax Host John Tabacco. “It is a complete waste of taxpayer funds that should be going to making New York City streets safe again.”
Stone also accused The New York Daily News of writting an unethical hit piece on his friend. Stone says he sent The Daily News clear answers to their questions regarding Greco but they never used them in the story.
“What I told them would totally-debunk the false narrative concocted in their fake news story,” said Stone. “The Daily News chose to be sneaky and dishonest in reporting on this.”
“If we have learned nothing from the years we had with Donald Trump as president it is that things like fairness, due process, and truth are utter irrelevancies to the corporate and social media propagandists who act as mere mouthpieces for the Democrat party and its radical left-wing zealots. Now they are subjecting this dedicated officer of the law to their latest politically-motivated witch hunt, using cheap innuendo and ‘guilt by association” to potentially destroy the career of this patriot for the unforgivable sin of being my friend.”

This NYPD charge has a set precedent in its history. Mayor Eric Adams bragged in his own memoir book that when he was a police captain he provided security for Mike Tyson, a convicted felon. Adams was investigated by Internal Affairs but was not penalized by the NYPD. Will the same happen for Officer Sal Greco?
“Mayor Adams writes in his book that when he was a police captain he provided security for Mike Tyson, a convicted felon,” said Stone. “Now they are saying Mr. Greco provided security for me. That’s not even correct but he did associate with me. They argue I am a convicted felon. Well is there one standard or two? They investigated Adams- he was cleared. He went on to his career at NYPD- he went on to become Mayor. So why isn’t Greco being held to the same standard? Is there one standard or do we have a two tiered standard of justice?”
“It is a known fact that police befriend convicted felons in order to get tips on the street,” said a police officer who asked to remain anonymous for fear of losing his job. “The line is blurred. It is not really a rule that is enforced as far as I know.”
Unless, of course, you are a vocal Trump supporter.
*We reached out to NYPD Internal Affairs for comment and have received no response. The next scheduled date of Greco’s hearing is March 29th. Greco is expected to take the stand. Please help Sal Greco HERE.
