Teen-Tasering cop friends with woman-punching cop?

Apparently, Philadelphia Highway Patrol Lt. Jonathan Josey, recently fired for punching sucker-punching a woman in the face, and Colwyn police Cpl. Trevor Parham, charged with Tasering a 17-year-old while he was handcuffed in a jail cell then texting a "lol" about the incident to another cop, are like BFFs or something.

Apparently, Highway Patrol Lt. Jonathan Josey, recently fired for sucker-punching a woman in the face, and Colwyn police Cpl. Trevor Parham, charged with Tasering a 17-year-old while he was handcuffed in a jail cell then texting a "lol" about the incident to another cop, are like BFFs or something, according to NBC10:

It turns out the two officers are friends, and have known each other for 30 years, according to Parham. Parham revealed this while speaking with NBC10 after his court appearance on Monday. The former Colwyn Borough Police Officer is accused of tasering a handcuffed teen prisoner.

Both men also have similar extracurricular activities. Josey runs a production company, "Brothers In Blue," and played a detective in the 2011 movie "Operation: Get Rid of Pinky," a gym instructor in the 2010 movie "Sure Looks Good" and a lawyer in the 2011 movie "Love and Litigation," according to his IMDB profile. Parham is a filmmaker who can be seen in the below video.

What does this mean? Absolutely nothing, except to the most devout conspiracy theorists. But that's never stopped us before.

The Philly FOP is planning to hold a $30-a-head party at its headquarters this month to support Josey. No word on whether Parham can expect a similar celebration in Delco ... or whether he also has a nipple ring.
