One of the best parts of the Greg Bates North Shore Eats story was when he tried to attack a former advertiser by telling her that a Peabody cop referred to her as a criminal:

Only to have the cop publicly call out Greg Bates for being a liar:

Then Greg Bates told us it wasn’t him who said that, and alleged that someone created a fake Greg Bates account and pretended to be him in order to frame him:

So the woman who he messaged went back through the conversation, clicked on his profile, and proved 1,000% that it was in fact him who had name dropped the cop:

Yet he STILL denied it.

Anyway, we only bring this up because a lot of people messaged us about Sgt. Hawkins and the great work he does in the community, including running in the Boston Marathon to raise money for kids with cancer.

Well it just so happens that this poor guy, like a lot of cops out there, can’t seem to catch a break with assholes. A couple months back he was the subject of a viral cop block video that has been viewed nearly 2 million times. It was filmed by this poon patrol:

His name is Joshua Gray, he claims to be a Private Investigator, and he even has the Facebook page to prove it.

I don’t know much about PI’s. All I know is they’re not real cops. From my understanding you can hire a PI to investigate a crime if you’re not happy with the way the cops are investigating it. It’s certainly got a purpose and a role, and the free market should allow them to exist. But my problem is when these people start thinking they’re real cops, which apparently Joshua Gray thinks he is when you watch this video of his encounter with Sgt. Harkins…..

To summarize:

  • Encyclopedia Clown is on “surveillance” of someone else and thinks this means the rules of the road don’t apply to him
  • He then allegedly cuts off another driver to stay with his subject, causing the other driver to hit a pole and get upset with him
  • He shows on the video that he clearly darts across a lane of traffic in order to keep pursuing his subject

  • He whines that he never hit the car, which was never really in dispute since he was accused of cutting off a car, thus causing an accident

  • When a real cop arrives (Harkins) Encyclopedia Clown jumps out of the car, because he thinks he’s a real cop

  • The real cop (Harkins) doesn’t like this because it’s extremely dangerous to jump out of a car at a motor vehicle stop and he lets him know what a moron he is

  • The real cop yells at him and closes the fake cop’s door because it’s wide open on what is clearly a busy street

  • The fake cop whines that the real cop shut the door on him

  • The fake cop files a complaint with the Peabody Police which they rule is ridiculous

Not the first time Encyclopedia Clown whined about the cops acting a fool and not following police commands because he thinks he’s a real cop:

Do people actually pay for this man to do surveillance?

I’ve seen better work on Tom Duggan’s Live videos.

The bottom line is, you couldn’t pay me enough money to be a cop and deal with maroons like this all day. Poor Sgt. Harkins can’t seem to catch a break. He’s got wannabe PI’s and wannabe food critics making shit up about him, and bad mouthing him to millions of like minded idiots, when all he’s trying to do is go to work.

    Honestly your outburts to people to contradict your opinion and the sloppyness of your writing makes me think a your probably a family member whos uneducated or an uneducated person who has a thumb up there ass about their police department, and I believe that we can all agree that if this is what you uphold of being right in your jurisdiction or maintaining control of your neighborhood I feel sorry for you.

    You are a joke and Harkins is a joke. Harkins would have been fired if I was his CO on the spot. Nice try trying to spin it around and making Josh as the aggressor. People like you are the reason why the world is fucked up.

    Peabody has no class. As you can see from the comments from all the cops.

    Say what you will, but the officer was rude and out of control, going soley on what another driver said the PI did. Granted, jumping out of your car is stupid, but not because of traffic. He could have gotten shot. In this day and age with all the violence against cops, it could happen. I was recently pulled over and issued a ticket for going 37mph in a 30. My wallet was in a bag in my back seat, but I did NOT attempt to reach back there to get it until the officer was at my door, and I told him I needed to retrieve it (and I’m a 50+ year old female driving through Paxton. Not exactly a threat.) Common sense. For all he knew, I could have been reaching for gun. We have all been pulled over, and most of the time the police officers are very nice…perhaps a little cocky, but professional, even if they issue you a ticket. The cop here was yelling and screaming like a lunatic. Most likely has a tough guy attitude.
    Police should be held to the same standards as other professionals. Calm the fuck down.

    i do think harkin was a little out of control, but opening the door in a stop is a good way to get seriously hurt – it is (and was) interpreted as an act of aggression. a good ‘p.i.’ this guy ain’t but he’s got the “p.a.’ thing down cold.

    Sgt Harkins is out of control. Love the failed attempt at spinning the truth in this article! There’s an old saying “if you have to explain yourself, you’ve lost the argument” . Time for Sgt Harkins to find another job.

        I would have hit you until you were dead and then admitted to it as it was only an accident.

      The only failed attempt at anything is your attempt to appear correct in your feebly smug passive-aggressive self-assurance. You’re so arrogant that you don’t even notice how much your own video incriminates you. You demonstrably forced traffic off the road because the welfare of others mattered too little to you, and then you jumped out of the car when you were stopped like someone who was going to open fire on the cops, which now is all the rage thanks to the vacant liberal mindset that enables criminals. It’s also duly noted that you didn’t even ask if the other driver was OK, and you even said the guy had a previous accident and tried to blame it on you. That either means you looked directly at the car you cut off and noticed it had damage, or you’re dismissing a serious issue that you caused by lying about it.

      The reason why the cop was going off on you was because you posed a potential threat to him until he figured out that you’re an idiot cop-wannabe and don’t know what you’re doing. He probably thought for a split second that he was going to have to kill someone. You need to find a new line of work, not the cop. He’s a noble and decent guy who does charity work. You’re a self-important slovenly imbecile who is out to prove something, but all you’re proven is that you’re a threat to the safety of people because you put your own ego above everything.

      You even attempt to motivate others to rally against law enforcement. Notice that the only commenters who are on your side in this are Antifa-type leftists who automatically hate cops because they advocate chaos. If you knew what you were doing, it would be immediately evident that if they’re on your side, you’re not one of the good guys. Who hates cops? Ask anyone throughout the ages and you’ll get the same answer.

      If you thought you’d become a private investigator to work on the side of good, you’ve failed miserably. In summary, if you know you’re wrong, you’re a consummate jerk, but if you don’t know you’re wrong, you’re dangerous.

      Admit it, own your error, and learn from it if you’re to continue this questionable career. If you don’t, the outlook for you is grim.

    This shitstain should be the next subject of a multi-part blog saga. If I’m not mistaken, you basically have to be an ex-LEO to be a registered PI in MA. You can do simple surveillance for insurance fraud cases, etc – but to be an actual PI you need to be licensed and the requirements for said license essentially mandate that you were once a LEO in MA. If this guy is trying to pass himself off as a real PI then I’m sure some hack in state government might be interested in making his life hell.

    I’d go after him but I’m too busy using taxpayer money to file political lawsuits against Trump, Exxon, Glock, the Gun Parlor, etc.

      Throughout this entire debacle Joshua Fray does not even acknowledge or even justify why he did something utterly stupid and dangerous like jumping out of a car during a law enforcement traffic stop. Oh, wait. He thinks he IS a law enforcement officer. That explains it.

    It should be a law to stay in your car unless directed during a stop. That makes sense though.

    If I was a cop, I would have pulled him out of the car and pistol whipped him yelling that I represent the 0.00000000000000000000000001% of actual asshole cops out there and today he picked the short fucking straw.
