Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
The NYPD claimed that Orta and Alba Lekaj entered a Staten Island hotel that is "a known drug-prone location."Moments later, Orta and Lekaj walked out of the hotel and were approached by police.
"Officers, in plain clothes with their shields displayed, approached the two individuals to question them when they observed [Orta] slip an object into the waistband of [Lekaj]," the NYPD said in court papers.
"Officers immediately took control of the two and observed, in plain sight, a gun in the waistband of [Lekaj]. The two were placed under arrest and an unloaded .25 caliber Norton handgun was recovered," added the NYPD.
"When they searched me, they didn't find nothing on me," Orta told the Staten Island Advance in August. "And the same cop that searched me, he told me clearly himself that karma's a bitch, what goes around comes around. I had nothing to do with this. I would be stupid to walk around with a gun after me being in the spotlight."
Name a hotel in all of greater NYC that isn't a "drug-prone location?"
I would think the police could make up a better story than that. But to be on the safe side they picked the smallest possible firepower caliber - and unloaded - to see in plain view - seen handed off to someone else - because everyone who illegally carries a gun in NYC carries unloaded guns.
I bet they are extra nice to him in city jail.
Throughout history, don't mess with the NYPD. No matter the facts, you lose. Bad.
