New York authorities are reporting that a s*x offender has been entering jails across the city disguised as a police officer. Matthew Matagrano was arraigned on impersonation charges following his arrest on March 2. Witnesses who have seen Matagrano report seeing him smoking cigarettes with inmates and walking around the correctional facility with ease.
The union head, Norman Seabrook, was extremely upset about the events that had taken place and told reporters, “We’re talking about a serious breach of security. Dora Schriro is our Cathie Black”. The name comparison is in reference to a former failed school chancellor in the city. This isn’t Matagrano’s first instance of impersonating an official. NYDailyNews.com reports Matagrano’s criminal history reportedly includes impersonating a Board of Education staffer in 2004 by flashing an ID so he could sneak into elementary schools and sift through confidential student files. He served three years in prison on those charges. In 1996, he served only a year behind bars for sod*mizing a 15-year-old boy, and is required to register with the state as a s*x offender.
The fact he was able to walk right into facilities such as Riker’s Island and Manhattan Detention Center, even though he was certainly registered with the city law enforcement, leaves me with a diminished faith in the justice system. This occurrence does not need to be repeated.
Do you have faith in the U.S. Department of Justice?
