“A New Jersey police officer was caught on camera telling a resident that police don’t have to follow the Constitution because President Obama doesn’t, either.”

“Special Police Officer Richard Recine, of the Borough of Helmetta Police Department, is now the subject of an internal affairs investigation after the video was posted online and was seen by Police Director Robert Manney, who called the comments an “embarrassment.””

“In the video, taken Monday at the borough municipal building, resident Steve Wronko gets into a verbal confrontation with Recine, who was called to the building because Wronko was seen taking pictures inside.”

“Because if he doesn’t follow the Constitution we don’t have to.

After Wronko insists he has a constitutional right to record in a public place, Recine responds.”

“Obama has decimated the friggin’ constitution, so I don’t give a damn,” said Recine, who is a retired Franklin, N.J., police officer. “Because if he doesn’t follow the Constitution we don’t have to.”

“Wronko then turns to the person recording the camera to make sure that was recorded. Recine repeats himself.”

“Our president has decimated the constitution, then we don’t have to.”

“On Wednesday, Manney said Recine’s words were “uncalled for and unprofessional.””

“Manney, who appears in the video but only after Recine had made his comments, said the investigation should be “completed very swiftly” because “the evidence is right there.””
