Mr. Brian Puricelli was the Attorney for Ex Police Andre Boyer who was fired on August 8, 2013 ironically after he had filed a $200,000 dollar federal lawsuit against the city of Philadelphia and Internal affairs investigator Lt. Karen Baldinio for violation of his racial discrimination, civil rights and corruption within the Police department internal affairs division. Attorney Brian Puricelli uncovered during the deposition of Lt. Baldinio that her investigation had been impartial and bias and not conducted properly and found numerous departmental violation that had not been made by his client. furthermore during the deposition found that evidence had been tempered with that was produced by internal affairs. The case report had been closed in 2010 and someone had added additional evidence to the case folder in 2013 after officer Boyer filed his lawsuit in 2012. The City solicitors Attorney after hearing and seeing the evidence during the deposition immediately requested not to pursue this case in federal court. The city solicitors office settle settlement on Nov 19, 2013 in federal court before Judge Thomas Rueter. During this investigation by internal affairs Lt. Karen Baldinio there was never any evidence produce during the deposition to show or prove that officer Boyer commit any crime or falsify any paper work that he was accused of doing. But However it did show where other officers and supervisors violated department rules and regulations.but yet were not interview or investigated after Lt. Karen Baldinio uncovering numerous departmental violated made by other officers and supervisors during her investigation. And what makes this coverup even more believable Officer Boyer filed a online police complaint form for corruption, harassment and also found out a high-ranking official within the department ran his personal information without just cause. Boyer waited two months before doing anything after not being contacted back by internal affairs with in 72 hour as per departmental policy. And was later told by A supervisor within internal affairs they did not investigate complaint given by police officers it would have to go to an outside agency to be investigated. The department Then dropped the case and no further action was taken nor was the case given to an outside Agency to investigate as the department is required to do so under law if an officer is alleging corruption within the police department and is a whistleblower. As a result of firing officer Boyer unjustly well over 280 cases were thrown out or not prosecuted by the DAs office and at least 8 felony gun cases thrown out. The tragedy to all this is he was a aggressive good cop doing his job. And because he pissed off the wrong person within the department he was persecuted it's clear that there is no justice. if you're interested in the truth You can contact me or my lawyer
