Fort Lee Police Department Being Sued for $8 million in damages.

Onn
Rapeika Fights back after Raid That Destroyed his Life.
Fort Lee, New Jersey. February 8, 2016
A man from Fort Lee New Jersey, who was a target of the Fort Lee Police Department, is
fighting back after they planted evidence at his house, stole from him, and destroyed his life,
all within a few minutes.
Onn Rapeika is suing the Fort Lee Police for all of the damages that they incurred on him and
his life last year. After being arrested for a crime that he didnt commit, he sought help and is
looking to bring justice not only to himself, but to others who have had the same fate as him,
in the hands of the law.
During what they say was a legal drug raid, the department proceed to find 30 firearms,
drugs, and illegal armor-piercing ammunition. They claimed that these firearms had no
licenses to go with them, and proceeded to steal about $250,000 worth of watches and gold
coins and $34,000 in cash. Not only that, but they destroyed furniture and belongings.
This isnt the first time there has been an allegation against the police for these types of acts.
They have in the past done the same thing to other people, and made it look as if they are the
ones that are doing illegal things, when in fact, it is not true.
Rapeika is looking to stop this illegal act that they do and make sure it doesnt happen to
anyone else who is just trying to live an upstanding life in America. His lawsuit was just
filled last month, and the whole town is waiting to see if and how he will succeed in his court
case.
