Steve Wronko was recently told by a Helmetta, N.J., police officer that law enforcement doesn't have to follow the U.S. Constitution because President Obama doesn't follow it.
Wronko was filing a compliant against the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter in a video (below) that was posted by an activist group, which claims the animal shelter has been violating the law, noted PhotographyIsNotaCrime.com.
“I’ve made objections about what’s going on at the shelter over there,” Wronko states. “My first and fourth amendment rights were violated, my civil rights were violated.”
“Obama just decimated the freaking Constitution, so I don’t give a damn. If he doesn’t follow the Constitution, we don’t have to,” states Special Police Officer Richard Recine.
The video then shows a previous incident in which another officer apparently tells Gronko to leave public property.
The video cuts back to the original footage that shows Officer Recine and a second police officer escorting Wronko out of the police station.
“Either you get out or you’re gonna get locked up,” states Officer Recine.
Helmetta Police Director Robert Manney has now placed Officer Recine under an internal affairs investigation.
Police Director Manney told MyCentralJersey.com today that Officer Recine's comments were "uncalled for and unprofessional."
"I've already spoken to that officer in regards to that," added Police Director Manney. "In my opinion it's an embarrassment."
"[Wronko] was in our building and he got some of our employees upset," stated Police Director Manney. "They were worried because they've seen him before lurking around. In my opinion he was looking for an issue."
Wronko's wife Collene Freda-Wronko, who filmed the incident, claimed that she and her husband were trying to file public record requests in the building.
The Wronkos claim the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter gave them a sick puppy that required medical care and cost thousands of dollars.
"We wanted them to pay for the medical bills. Now it's way past the money," stated Freda-Wronko. "Now it's about getting animals out of that shelter and getting people into that shelter who could run that facility better."
