Bedford Police Under Fire For Insensitivity To Plight Of Rene Perez
 Reporting
Tony Aiello=20
BEDFORD, N.Y. (CBS) ?=20
There was anger and pain Thursday for the family of a man allegedly left =
to die by a suburban police officer.=20

CBS 2 HD has obtained an audiotape of police joking about homeless =
immigrant Rene Perez on the night he died.=20

Perez's brother told CBS 2 HD he is outraged.=20

The calls obtained by CBS 2 HD were made by Bedford cops last April as =
they monitored the status of Perez on the night he was found dying on =
the side of a desolate road.=20

*Sgt. Dunn: "Bedford police, Sgt. Dunn."=20

*Officer: "You wanna hear something really funny?"=20

*Sgt. Dunn: "What's really funny?"=20

*Officer: "He's back."=20

*Sgt. Dunn: "He's alive?"=20

*Officer: "He's alive."=20

*Sgt. Dunn: "I thought they pronounced him."=20

*Officer: "They did (ha ha). They're in there seeing him off."=20

*Officer: "They're getting him all ready . and . and he's started . he's =
breathing again."=20

*Sgt. Dunn: "Holy ----."=20

*Officer: "They're in there and the dude's pickled man."=20

*Sgt. Dunn: "Unbelievable."=20

An hour later Perez was dead. Then there was another phone call.=20

*Sgt. Purdy: "Bedford police, Sgt. Purdy."=20

*Officer (singing): "Don't walk away Rene. . What's up?"=20

*Sgt. Purdy: "This Idol competition?"=20

Anival Perez told CBS 2 HD it was painful to hear cops joking about his =
brother.=20

"It's very unrespectful about the reaction by Bedford police listening =
and watching about my brother dying," Anival Perez said through a =
translator.=20

Some might view the joking about Rene Perez as "gallows" humor police =
sometimes use to lighten what can be depressing work.=20

Asked for comment, the Bedford police chief said, "We are not callous or =
indifferent. Beyond that I cannot comment on a pending case."=20

After a lengthy investigation led by the Bedford Police Department, =
Mount Kisco cop George Bubaris was charged with manslaughter, accused of =
injuring Perez then dumping him on a desolate road.=20

It's not clear if the tapes of the Bedford cops joking will in any way =
prove useful to Bubaris' defense team. The case is expected to come to =
trial by early April.=20

Every police officer in Bedford and Mount Kisco knew Rene Perez. They =
say he was an alcoholic and troublemaker who had hundreds of run-ins =
with both departments.
