Last week, former New York City cop Kenneth Moreno was acquitted of the rape of a 29-year-old woman, though he and his partner were convicted of misconduct and stripped of their jobs. This week, a tipster in the neighborhood noticed these posters on and around Moreno's Brooklyn block.
The acquittal sparked widespread outrage, including at a protest outside the courthouse a week ago. Posters with Moreno's face and "NYPD Rapist" quickly appeared in the alleged victim's former neighborhood of the East Village. These, posted on 20th Street near 4th avenue and nearby blocks, hit closer to home. (The Morenos are listed, and their block also appeared in local tabloids.)
