Pulled off the road and placed on & # 39; limited tasks & # 39 ;: Bikie-busting agent Andrew & # 39; Raptor 13 & # 39; Murphy
Raptor 13 – the & # 39; no nonsense & # 39; police officer recently struck for & # 39; serious misconduct & # 39; about a traffic stop of two Muslim women – was taken off the road by his commanders.
Andrew Murphy, chief officer of the NSW Police Force, was placed on limited duties earlier this year and no longer works & # 39; en route & # 39 ;.
Viral videos & # 39; s of Mr. Murphy's confrontations have turned him into a cult figure, but a video released by the police watchdog has recently led to growing calls for his resignation.
Daily Mail Australia was told that the police officer in Sydney was on leave & # 39; was due to his regular position as part of the bikie-busting squadron of the Force during & # 39; months & # 39 ;.
But police sources said he was on & # 39; limited tasks & # 39; was placed because of threats against him, instead of the probe of the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC).
A spokeswoman for the NSW Police Force said: & # 39; Since earlier this year, the officer has been performing appropriate limited duties. & # 39;
More than 15,000 people have signed a Change.org petition calling for Mr Murphy's termination, with calls escalating after a LECC report was released last week.
The LECC said that Mr. Murphy had threatened and abused two Afghan women after being persuaded to them in Parramatta on April 20 because of a safety belt.
In video, released by the commission, Mr. Murphy criticizes the hijab-bearing P-plate driver, 24, as & # 39; the dumbest person & # 39 ;.
He also threatens to accuse the driver & # 39; as an accessory for bloody murder & # 39; and ensuring that her passenger – a new migrant – & # 39; back to prison & # 39; is going.
Murphy told police watchdog investigators that he & # 39; was not proud of & # 39; are & # 39; dumbest & # 39; note.
He denied that his behavior was because the women were Muslims.
But he admitted that his behavior might be & # 39; racially motivated & # 39; for the women or passers-by.
One of Raptor 13 & # 39; s first viral incidents occurred when he waved a metal pole at an audience member
Two of the many tense stalemates with Raptor 13 that went viral: On the left he inspects a motorcycle. On the right he confronts a & # 39; veteran & # 39; in an angry attitude
But it was this incident with two Afghan women who caught the attention of the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC) and found him to have & # 39; serious misconduct & # 39;
The LECC ordered Mr. Murphy to be disciplined under S127 of the 1990 Police Act and described his actions as & # 39; serious misconduct & # 39 ;.
But the punishment is still excellent, and he doesn't have to worry much, with a former agent who says the LECC recommendation is for a & # 39; slap on the wrist & # 39 ;.
Mr. Murphy would still have & # 39; operational duties & # 39; and has recently been seen in court in his full police uniform.
But it is unlikely that he will be able to repeat some of his earlier antics, such as going toe-to-toe with mourners going to the funeral of a Comanchero kingpin; waving a metal pole at an audience member or throwing a driver's license on the floor.
The antics of Raptor 13 revealed while the police confirm that he & # 39; has been pulled off the road and placed on limited tasks & # 39;
Raptor 13 is part of an anti-gang team that focuses on motorcycle groups with unconventional tactics. It's his team name
Senior police officer Andrew Murphy caught the public's attention about two years ago when videos of his stand-offs with members of the public went viral on social media.
The hard-nosed officer is part of an anti-gang police enforcement team called Strike Force Raptor, which focuses on motorcycle riders and uses unconventional tactics.
He fanned the headlines for confronting mourners on the way to the funeral of the murdered Comanchero boss Mick Hawi, waving a metal pole near the head of a man and in the face of an older man.
& # 39; Move it … I'm not asking, I'm telling you, & # 39; he hears the man tell in a viral video.
Mr. Murphy has been praised on talkback radio for his & # 39; no nonsense & # 39; tactics – and videos & # 39; s circulating on Facebook show that he rarely retreats to tense stand-offs.
But he has also become a hatred and the target of despicable online abuse, including rape and death threats.
