Punish Cop Accused of Publicly Masturbating to Minors and Assaulting Disabled Veteran

Target: Cyrus Vance Jr., District Attorney of New York

GoalSeverely punish detective who allegedly assaulted a disabled veteran and was accused of masturbating while looking at underage children through their windows.

NYPD Detective Robert Francis was allegedly caught masturbating to underage children while looking through their windows. Francis was charged with exposing himself on four separate occasions outside the homes of teenage girls. The charges, which include public lewdness, endangering the welfare of a minor and criminal trespassing, are still “pending.” This detective has faced three federal lawsuits, but it seems his repeated criminal behavior has gone mostly ignored. In a 2010 case of excessive force, the city ended up having to pay over 14,000 dollars while Francis was supposed to pay 500 dollars and never did, according to the victim’s lawyer.

The most recent lawsuit filed against Francis was after he allegedly assaulted a disabled Vietnam veteran using a cane. The victim, Sylvester Wilson, reportedly witnessed Francis giving a summons to the driver of a “dollar truck.” When Wilson spoke up, telling Francis that what he was doing was wrong and that the driver is a “hard working person,” Francis reportedly pushed him to the ground. Afterward, the police department refused to allow Wilson to report the incident, claiming that he’d need a badge number or the officer’s name.

A few months after the initial incident, Wilson saw officer Francis in public and tried getting a photo, but he covered his badge and disappeared into a store. When Wilson approached the officer, asking why he hid his badge, Francis reportedly responded by dragging the victim out into the street and pepper spraying him before assaulting him with kicks and punches. Wilson was charged with attempted assault and resisting arrest, but the case against him was later dismissed.

This detective has been allowed to get away with too much. That’s why we must pressure authorities to put this alleged repeated offender behind bars. Please sign this petition demanding that Detective Francis be barred from working in a position of authority and severely punished if found guilty for these crimes.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Vance Jr.,

A detective was arrested on charges of public lewdness and exposing himself on four separate occasions to minors. Detective Robert Francis was reportedly masturbating while peeping inside the windows of underage girls. This is just one of many criminal accusations Francis has faced. For instance, he had three federal lawsuits against him, including one where he allegedly assaulted an innocent, disabled Veteran.

It seems this continuous criminal behavior over the years has been grossly overlooked, so there’s little reason to believe that justice will be served in the most recent cases against Francis. We, the undersigned, demand that Francis be barred from ever working in a position of authority and severely punished if found guilty for these crimes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The NYPD’s coddling and protecting of this disgusting vile criminal cop and allowing this creep to continue his crimes unabated is unconscionable. This cop must be fired, prosecuted and imprisoned to protect the public. The corruption in the NYPD should be investigated.

  2. NYPD must lighten their load and (1) fire this pervert and (2) prosecute him making sure that he spends his life in prison. This will benefit the world from having to deal with him.

  3. This is life in New York City under Mayor DeBlasio? Why is this cop being protected after he’s committed at least half a dozen crimes against New Yorkers? Has he been suspended? Is he still carrying a gun? This cop is mentally disturbed and is a walking time bomb.
