Carlos Betancourt apologizes for remark about WNYPD, supports Salgado


West New York United commissioner candidate Carlos Betancourt, a 34-year veteran of the town’s police department, apologized for a remark he made about the police force at a WNYU fundraiser last week. He also voiced his support for rookie WNY cop Jorge Salgado, who was involved in a fatal accident Monday night.


“I spoke in reference to the police department, and in my zeal of delivery, I said ‘we’d make them work,’ Betancourt reiterated at the WNYU campaign headquarters on Hudson Avenue earlier this afternoon

“I want to rectify that: it certainly had noting to do, I believe that the [police] department of West New York, which was my honor and privilege to serve with them for so many years – the finest in the area.”

Betancourt also offered his support for the 28-year-old Salgado, who killed a pedestrian in North Bergen when driving through North Bergen on his way to work late Monday night.

The investigation is ongoing and no criminal charges have been filed in the matter as of this writing.

“There was an incident that took place in the last 48 hours … this young man is a wonderful and excellent police officer, it was an accident, and I don’t want to see things with people rushing to judgment.

  1. Can someone please tell me what an “APUNPA” is…WTH…LMAO did anyone notice Wileys face…You think hes mad???Wait til choqui’s voter fraud comes out as well then he’s gonna blow his top!!!

  2. Come on frank. everyone knows roque lives in Cliffside and sue lives in fairview And Guzman ran illegal day cares. Don’t throw stones when you have skeletons.

  3. Rumors and talk are one thing and facts are another…Give me the facts and nothing but the facts,remember that yellow pages commercial….I hear ridiculous rumors everyday but when I put something out there I back it up with facts…

  4. Frank, now that Menendez is bye bye… and Roque has no protection…it will be a good idea for you to take a vacation and stay quiet… you know… shyt start to filter out like the money you taken from alamo…and things could get ugly may brother from another mama… smoke you pipa and remember donald duck could go from pato to canario in no time.. you should go back to you hometown and stay away from the bad smell … you starting to smell like jail rat.. and that is not good me brother…

  5. I aint no brother of yours,my brothers when they have something to say they say it like men and write their real names behind comments.I have nothing to worry about,never gotten a dime from Alamo,lol,so your caca talk is just that caca….I will stay front and center proving to people that Wiley and Choqui are fakes and no go for WNY…Everyone will see it by May 12th and the vote will speak for itself….GOOD LUCK!!!!

  6. You are truly full of crap frank and a joke. You’re being used by the very people you fought against. And yes, the truth will come out about sue and roque living arrangements soon enough. What are you going to do may 13th when there is nowhere for you to tuen anymore.

  7. Frank, I don’t know how you got your hands on Wiley’s kid’s records, but I can garantee it wasn’t legal, unless he handed them to you himself. You’re just a slob with a big mouth looking for hand outs. I do hope that they find out how you got the records, and as for the living arraingments, well why don’t you go to the food bank in farview and check out sue’s apartment, then keep driving north to cliffside to visit roque. You took the gloves off when you brought the guys kids into this. That’s just not right. I don’t agree with Wiley all the time, but his kids should be off limits. No one has mentioned roques convict son lately have they. Maybe that;s because he was basically thrown under the bus by his own father. You’re right, good luck to everyone. By the way, these are all points you were screaming about not too long ago. You seem to have a short memory, maybe its the weed that’s affecting your brain.
