McCoy, DA meeting reportedly on, police complain of “preferential treatment”

Bills running back LeSean McCoy was scheduled to meet with the Philadelphia District Attorney on Tuesday and then that meeting was reportedly cancelled due to a feared “media circus” before word out of Philly changed again on Tuesday afternoon.

According to multiple reports, McCoy and/or his attorneys will meet with prosectors on Tuesday after all. The latest shift comes amid further complaints from the Fraternal Order of Police about the way the District Attorney is handling the case. FOP president John McNesby said it was “bizarre” that District Attorney Seth Williams would meet with McCoy and accused Williams of providing McCoy special treatment.

“If that’s not preferential treatment, I don’t know what is,” McNesby said, via CSNPhilly.com. “I don’t know if [Williams] is cozy [with McCoy], not cozy, but we’re scratching our heads over the whole situation. It looks like special treatment to me.”

A spokesman for Williams’ office said that the meeting was nothing of the kind.

“Anytime an attorney wishes to have their client reach out to us, we do that,” the spokesman said. “That’s part of our investigation. This is not an issue of preferential treatment. This is an issue of conducting a thorough investigation.”

McNesby added that police officers will “lose a lot of respect” for Williams if McCoy isn’t charged with a crime, which could make the fallout from McCoy’s nightclub fight with off-duty police officers go much further than most incidents involving NFL players.

    Would the police care if he was still an Eagle? They seem to have no problem throwing current 76ers player, Jahil Okafor a bone after his 108 mph car chase. That warranted more than a $400 fine.

  2. corporatemediaprostitute says: Feb 23, 2016 5:05 PM

    Yeah, this is troubling. How will the FOP be able to count on an acquittal the next time a Philly cop murders an unarmed citizen?

  3. darutledge3 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:06 PM

    Nah preferential treatment is starting a fight in a night club and getting away with it cuz you’re an officer by day

  4. pedrov1 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:06 PM

    Police always want their own way they will lie just to protect their own

  5. bostonbadass says: Feb 23, 2016 5:09 PM

    Not a bills or McCoy fan but this looks like the D.A knows his officers are not exactly innocent & wants the truth before he makes a judgement he regrets.
    Maybe Old Roger the media dodger should take some advice from someone with a Brain

    Just an FYI
    Not all cops are on the level.

  6. nfceastfan says: Feb 23, 2016 5:10 PM

    Good luck.

    The city of Philadelphia is corrupt from top to bottom. I thought Michael Nutter would help but he just compounded an already existing problem.

  7. jonwill57 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:12 PM

    So now we have it…the mayor and the FOP are flapping their gums. If I’m McCoy I will welcome a jury trial. I grew up in that town when Rizzo’s officer’s did whatever they wanted and got away with it. Those days are over…

    During the 1960s the FOP opposed the creation of police review boards, spearheaded by Robert F. Kennedy, at one point describing them as a “sinister movement against law enforcement”. The FOP also clashed with the ACLU on the issue of police brutality, seeing it as a “liberal attempt to discredit law enforcement”.

    FOP is nothing more than a “see no evil, hear no evil” organization designed to serve and protect those officers who are on the wrong side of the law. Since they are supposed to be representatives of the law, why would they be speaking out of turn knowing the potential damage caused to a potential legal case? IDIOTS!!

  8. silverandblack052099 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:18 PM

    If anyone could recognize preferential treatment it’s the police, they are very familiar with it. So now that they are on the wrong end of it they want to cry foul?

    Subject: Fwd: NoSubject
    The truth is anyone with street experience can see whats happening…

    This isnt about the ‘financial’ power of these pro athletes (although its good they have it or theyd likley be railroaded.)

    But its obvious some beligerant intoxicated cops decided to go into bully mode with the wrong guys (professional football players) and now everyones outraged that the “winners” DIDNT FIGHT BY ‘THEIR’ RULES eg: once they started hurting the cops, they KEPT ON hitting them (allegedly.)

    For whats actually witnessed, thats the ONLY charge that COULD be brought vs them (IE: they no longer needed to ‘defend’ themselves but continued.)

    But ANYONE with experience in a real fight knows you BETTER BE SURE if you stop fighting. Quiting in a real fight could get you killed.

    For the DA to bring charges, that the players “should have known when” to stop fighting (vs off duty cops who, IF let up, may have called MORE cops to come meet them in the parking lot) – is a REALLY HARD thing to argue to a jury of citizens who know how arrogant & bullying their “off duty” cops can be.

    Jurys dont typically fill with the privileged citizens who “love the protection” all the “nice police officers” provide them.

    In todays world, regular people see cops as bullys.

    Apparently so did the witnesses to this fight.

  10. 6thsense10 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:19 PM

    The FOP head is not helping at all. He wasn’t there yet he keeps acting like he witnessed the entire event himself. It really is not unusual for potential suspects to meet with the DA to convey their side of the story. And it’s not unusual for a DA to meet.

    If this idiot want to talk about preferential treatment then he can explain to us why the officers are not facing any charges at the moment when witnesses have said that it was the cops that grabbed a bottle of expensive champagne that wasn’t theirs and proceeded to choke and slam an individual that objected to it. He also needs to explain why neither of the cops are facing intoxication or DWI charges. Why according to some of the ladies that were with McCoy and the cops that the officers drove to the club intoxicated and why according to a number of witnesses one of the cops pulled out a gun in the club whilst intoxicated. He also needs to explain why the cops were the ones tossed out by the club bouncers and why the injured cops decided to drive past much closer hospitals to another one future out. Why the cops waited a couple of days to report it when protocol is to call 911 and stay at the scene so a police report can be filed and people questioned. Also if at the hospital were there any tests for drugs or alcohol done? Why or why not.

    This whole thing didn’t pass the smell test when first reported and stinks even more as each day passes.

    What the hell do you expect? That he would stand up for the cops?
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    No I would expect him to stand up for the law. If the cops broke the law, they should be charged. If McCoy broke the law, he should be charged. The only issue here is off-duty cops got the snot beat out of them for some reason.
    If you’re suggesting McCoy won’t be charged because of his skin color, you couldn’t be more wrong…but you won’t admit though.

    imperial pig scum cops trying to force blame and charges on McCoy and ct like their officers are not corrupt

    if the cops get charges and lose their jobs without benefits charge McCoy with a crime of disorderly conduct but that is it.

  16. tjacks7 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:21 PM

    As a cop, these cops are opening a can of worms and going down a slippery slope claiming “preferential treatment.” From what I read so saw, you pretty much have to charge everybody or nobody. That’s the risk you take when you get involved in a bar fight even if you’re an off duty cop. These dummies probably lucked out because they’ll sue him in civil court and that’s where they should take this case if they’re smart. Otherwise they’re going to go down the road and get themselves charged and canned for their involvement.

    Also, as a cop, I’d much, much, much rather walk into a bar and deal with 100 people that are high than 100 people that are drunk. Legalize weed, tax the heck out of it, and start climbing out of this deficit!!

  17. mogogo1 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:23 PM

    ““If that’s not preferential treatment, I don’t know what is,””
    ________
    I thought he was talking about getting the cops to rubber-stamp charges being filed for some bar fight you started and lost.

    I’m no fan of McCoy but I’d be willing to bet that we’ll eventually get details showing this fight started nothing like the off-duty cops claim.

  18. ashhole420 says: Feb 23, 2016 5:24 PM

    cops in PA must be thinking McCoy can be treated like the average joe and be charged with felonies while the cops cover up their dirt.

    The Da knows the media will not let McCoy get treated unjust like the average joe.

  19. purpleguy says: Feb 23, 2016 5:26 PM

    That cop spokesman is doing his cops much more harm than good with all this over-the-top gum flapping.

  20. whenwilliteverend says: Feb 23, 2016 5:27 PM

    I don’t know what all the facts are but I think the FOP should keep their mouths shut until all the facts come out. This is nothing more than a blatant attempt to influence the outcome of this incident. Let it play out in the justice system.

    Really love all the respect for law enforcement posted here, don’t get me wrong. You are all making perfect sense, but I doubt any one of McCoys entourage knew they were dealing with off duty police officers through out the altercation. If they did they sound have there heads examined. I agree, It’s the cops fault. If a man buys four bottles of champagne and doesn’t like it when my homey comes and snatches one out his hand, he deserves to be hit. He tries to defend himself, he deserves to be stomped by 4 guys. His buddy tries to break it up, he deserves to be stomped as well, should of known better. Send them all to the emergency room with fractures all over their bodies. A $200 dollar bottle of champagne should be shared, even if the guy who bought it doesn’t want to. McCoy and his boys aren’t in the wrong at all here. It’s perfectly normal behavior in our society for you and 3 friends to inflict serious physical harm on 2 individuals cause you want what’s theirs. What crime is that?

  26. bettywhiteshairnet says: Feb 23, 2016 5:44 PM

    Preferential treatment is not recommending charges for your boys in blue.

  27. granadafan says: Feb 23, 2016 5:44 PM

    Preferential treatment? How about internal affairs and auditors take a look at the OFF DUTY cops and how they could afford multiple $1000 champagne bottles? If they’re off duty, they’re not cops but civilians. The FOP and mayor make it sound as if McCoy and his friends walked up to an cop and just started beating them.

  28. stepback2see says: Feb 23, 2016 5:49 PM

    So some “tough guys” start some nonsense in the club.. Why only one group of “tough guys” is being held responsible for the fight!? Because they lost? I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work.. People wonder why their is so much distrust and windy against cops.. Never liked tattle tales or bullies growing up, still don’t like em now that they grew up to be police officers.

    If the cop showed a badge before getting physical I have no sympathy for Mc Coy and his buddy, and they should suffer the legal consequences . If the cop did not show his badge ,then the cop is on very shaky ground as far as I’m concerned . The NFL halftime show was a disgrace.

    Yes, it’s absurd that cops get preferential treatment. Everyone acts like cops are special, when in fact they are just as likely to lie, cheat or comit a crime as anyone else. The only difference is they get to carry a badge, a gun & no one will legitimately question them unless there is video evidence proving their guilt, like there would be in a “night” (Strip) club.

    My understanding is there are two videos that look bad for Shady. A bottle of champagne was sent to the wrong table. Shady’s “boys” went to reclaim it when an argument started. The cops were then beat up. They didn’t start a physical confrontation He will be charged, just a matter of what charge.

    It’s not so much who initiated it. It’s the fact it’s between a famous athlete and off duty cops that makes this a story. Otherwise, it would be “just another bar fight.”

    These happen every night of the week. There’s less than a .5% chance that McCoy, or anyone else, single handedly picks a bar fight with a complete stranger without any involvement from the other side. It doesn’t happen.

    Both sides are at some degree of fault for putting themselves in this position. Chalk it up as being drunk and dumb, learn from it, and move on.

  55. genericcommenter says: Feb 23, 2016 7:40 PM

    1. Weren’t these guys off-duty?
    2. I haven’t heard (have you?) anything about who initiated the fight or any other details.
    3. Sometimes a fight in a bar is an assault; other times it’s just a bar fight that someone lost.

    =
    I think it’s hard to know who to believe, but I don’t know how anyone can jump to the conclusion that McCoy committed a crime just because he’s famous and it involved people of a certain profession. Members of that profession get the benefit of the doubt more often than not when it comes to DAs filing charges. Isn’t that “preferential” treatment? Maybe the DA should say: “You’re right, there shouldn’t be preferential treatment,” and charge the other guys!

    Sorry, this is the sort of thing that someone who doesn’t know how to use logic and debate actual issues says. Frankly, there may have been sometimes, maybe right now, that hate for police is disproportionate. At other times, it has been OK and socially acceptable for police to murder people with impunity. That is a fact known by anyone with a small grasp of history or recent current events, basically anyone with a grade school education. Society hasn’t criminalized police. It has criminalized certain behavior, and is supposed to treat that behavior equally regardless of status or profession. A society that allows certain state agents to act outside the law cannot seriously argue that it is a nation of laws or one that supports “law and order.”

    All of you complaining about the police can do two things:

    1. Stop being hypocrites b/c if some people jumped your family or friends you’d be after them too.

    2. Don’t call the police next time something happens to you.

    Every cop isn’t crooked and it’s amazing that people are backing this punk and his friends after five of them jumped two guys whether they’re cops or not.

  66. phillybrilliance says: Feb 24, 2016 5:57 AM

    The double standard in this case is mind boggling. If the beating were the other way around and the black guys ended up in the hospital with broken ribs and orbital bones we would have the naacp marching down broad street. But it was the cops who got beat and you’re still saying the cops are the bad guys. None of you know anything about the case and yet you are claiming police misconduct. Please stay out of Philadelphia.

  67. bubba703 says: Feb 24, 2016 6:59 AM

    The FOP should stop venting to the press and let the process play itself out despite the snail pace. The DA obviously knows this case is being closely watched. The FOP seems to have concluded McCoy and his friends are guilty. But the longer process suggests there might be more to the story. For example, if it somehow turns out those off-duty cops started the fracas instead of McCoy’s group, the FOP could end up with egg their faces , and the off-duty officers facing charges. One would hope those officers did not start it, but we just don’t know. Let it play out.

    Celebrities (including NFL stars) generally do get some sort of preferential treatment over ordinary citizens. Having said that, McCoy won’t be getting nearly the amount of coddling and preference as Manziel because Manziel comes from a family of immense wealth that can buy all the right connections.

    I would be investigating how two police officers had the money to order 4 expensive bottles of Champagne.

    one could say the same about the police and preferential treatment, no?

    The police would be wise to assess the facts, and call it how it is, rather than play frat boy games.

    A fight happened. One side loss. The end.

    I’m confused in many investigations by police they love to have the
    suspect come on in and have a talk. ” hey Mr. Witness just come in and meet with all 5 of our investigators and by the way….don’t bring your lawyer…..we just want to talk…”.
    Weeks later Mr. Witness is now Defendant based upon his admissions that the police are now using as a basis for the affidavit of probable cause that is filed along with the charges.
    Police are permitted by our courts to lie and trick when questioning a person. Never ever talk to a police investigator without
    a lawyer. Believe me the cops will tell you ….you don’t need a lawyer
    and seem nice but they are tricking and pressuring you in order for them to arrest you. ” hey if you help us we will help you ” is the biggest lie of all. In addition the DA is not bound by any supposed
    ” agreement ” or ” handshake to help ” if you should decide to give a statement that causes you to be arrested.
    In addition bar fights are difficult to prosecute and ironically difficult to defend. All the witnesses are usually under the influence.
    Factual info is usually supplied by witnesses to a fight that happens very quickly. The winner of fight charges are usually the first ones in the door with some type of advantage like knowing the bouncers.
    The cops in this case did what their training told them to do …went to a friendly hospital to document injuries and filled out complaints
    immediately…..to be first in the door.
    The FOP are just mad that their cops statements and info are not being
    given the absolute authority the FOP arrogantly believes they should be given.

    “Would the police care if he was still an Eagle? They seem to have no problem throwing current 76ers player, Jahil Okafor a bone after his 108 mph car chase. That warranted more than a $400 fine.”

    Wouldn’t it be the same DA and courts who handle what happens to Okafor as who handle McCoy? Police don’t determine innocence or guilt.

    I would question the role of the off duty police out fighting in public as much or more than a football player.

    The POLICE are complaining about preferential treatment? That’s rich.
