Opinion: Email to an NYPD Police Officer that contacted me about someone stealing my phone on April 3, 2023.


Greetings Officer,

I always treat police officers respectfully in person.

I have no issue with any police officers personally.

I respect what you do.

With that being said, let’s not conveniently leave out any details.

T Mobile wasn’t asking for a police report for the lost/stolen phone.

I just wanted to document that I’ve been robbed so many times in New York City that I lost count.

In my opinion, people I know pay various law enforcement, former law enforcement, and civilians to harass me, sabotage me, and run scams on me.

I’m not going to type a book here.

I don’t drink.

I don’t smoke.

I don’t date women or anyone, for that matter.

I don’t have a criminal record.

I don’t do anything illegal.

I live squeaky clean.

If you look up my name in the NYPD computer system, you will see I’ve been robbed several times.

In my opinion, people I know pay others to harass me.

Who is going to investigate that?

I wish it weren’t the case, although I understand why the NYPD and New York FBI don’t want to get involved.

I’m doing my best to get the word out to non-government organizations to try and get help.

I have no idea why you are contacting me.

To be honest, I don’t care.

If my response is mandatory, I’ll do it.

If it’s not mandatory, let’s just stop playing games because respectfully you’re not helping me.

In my opinion, people I know pay your bosses to run scams.

That doesn’t mean I’m anti law enforcement.

If it was up to me, I say triple the salary of every person in America that works for the government.

NYPD Internal Affairs blocked my phone number.

The New York FBI, Manhattan District Attorney, and the US Attorney for New York City all blocked my phone number.

People know who I am.

You aren’t helping me.

If I see you around Manhattan, it’s 100% respect.

If this conversation isn’t mandatory, I’m politely and respectfully ending it now.

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine
