Cop was caught on tape saying he "fried another n-word."
The racist NYPD cop who said he "fried another nigger" is now admitting he falsely arrested the black man he said that about to teach him a lesson.
The lesson? To teach him respect for law enforcement.
Michael Daragjati is scheduled to be sentenced Friday for violating the civil rights of Kenrick Gray after he was stopped and frisked in Staten Island. The officer claimed Gray mouthed off to him and he charged him with resisting arrest. Gray spent two days in jail as a result of the bogus collar.

“I did so, not because of the color of his skin, but because he was rude and disrespectful to me,” Daragjati wrote in a six-page letter from his jail cell to Brooklyn Federal Judge William Kuntz, who is black and a former member of the Civilian Complaint Review Board.
“I thought that if he received a (desk appearance ticket and was released) this person wouldn’t have learned a lesson that he should not be disrespectful to law enforcement.”
He faces up to 57 months in prison for the civil rights and extortion charges he pleaded guilty to this year. He has been fired as a result of the conviction.
