TRENTON, NJ — Brian C. Biscieglia, a Deputy Attorney General IV for the State of New Jersey, appears to have either deleted or completely locked down his personal Facebook posts after we reported on the controversial nature of them recently and the president of the State Troopers Fraternal Association requested an investigation.
Biscieglia’s Facebook profile picture is still up and shows him standing next to and pointing towards a piece of “artwork” that depicts criminal Pablo Escobar, a Columbian drug lord who founded and led the Medellin Cartel.
His background cover photo shows a Minneapolis liquor store engulfed in flames and a person walking nearby with an upside down American flag.
As we recently reported, it appears that Biscieglia has held his Deputy Attorney General IV position for over 10 years and works in the Department of Law and Public Safety’s Gaming Enforcement section, making him a law enforcement officer.
According to OPENGOVUS, Biscieglia’s annual salary is $86,925.63.
There is not much to glean from his Facebook page at this point, but he does have some interesting items that he has “liked,” ranging from Sticky Graphic Novels to The Arc of Atlantic County to the women’s clothing store DressLily.

On Twitter, the account @BrianBiscieglia is currently suspended due to violating Twitter’s rules, so it cannot be verified whether this private account belongs to the deputy attorney general or not.
Regarding his Facebook posts, however, Law Enforcement Today had obtained confirmed screenshots of a few of his controversial posts before he locked them down. Let’s review a few of them.
In one, he suggested police body cams are useless because “plenty of pigs have been caught on film murdering,” yet got away with it:
“Body cams don’t mean anything until the culture changes. Plenty of pigs have been caught on film murdering, and they still walked away. A step in the right direction, yes, but FAR from the answer.”
On April 29, he wrote:
“This fucking bullshit about society falling into criminal chaos if we change policing is nonsense. And this shit with cops whining about wanting so much commendation for their jobs is fucked.
It’s your job, who the fuck cares? Being a cab driver or a crab fisherman is dangerous as fuck, but you don’t see them whining about it all the time. The more cops that quit because they are angry over not being able to abuse or kill people, the better.”
In another dated May 1, Biscieglia wrote:
“So much of the US are authoritarian loving bootlicking cowards who think that not complying with anything the pigs say is punishable by death. That’s fucked.
What kind of miserable fear makes people like that? Its so pathetic. And these are usually the people who talk about freedom all the time, while simultaneously saying comply or die. The levels of stupidity in the US are overwhelming.”
Biscieglia may be on to something there with his last sentence.
He also wrote on May 20 that “Law and Order” is code for “I’m afraid of people who aren’t white.”
When he is not picking on police, Biscieglia has no issue bashing family members of those killed in the line of duty.
As previously reported, he tore into Maureen Faulkner, the widow of Philadelphia officer Daniel Faulkner, who was killed by Mumia Abu-Jamal in 1981:
“Man, fuck Maureen Falkner [sp]. Her fucking husband got killed 40 yrs ago, and FOX still brings her racist fucking ass out whenever they feel she can add to the racism. And to lie. She does a lot of that.”

On June 2, Biscieglia admitted his issues with police may have started when he was 14 or 15:
“Weird how I just made the mental connection that maybe my issues with the police started when Galloway PD tried to pin a fucking arson on me when I was 14 or 15. No fucking evidence. And talk about white privilege, I remember my dad telling the cops to ‘get the fuck out of my house before I throw you the fuck out,’ and they just left.”
In addition to not liking police, even though he is a law enforcement official himself, he also posted his dislike of Republicans, the Holy Bible and the U.S. military.
On May 12, he wrote:
“Top 3 platforms of today’s GOP
- Trump won the election
- White supremacy/every other form of bigotry
- Conspiracy theories.”
On May 18, Biscieglia posted a picture of the Holy Bible and labeled the most revered book of Christians worldwide as excrement:
“The easiest way to become an atheist is to actually read this piece of shit.”
On Memorial Day, Biscieglia outdid both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris by actually mentioning the somber holiday and then insulting every soldier who ever fought to keep us safe and free:
“Fuck Memorial Day. Fuck your wars, fuck your worship of people who will kill when ordered to, fuck the death cult that the US is, fuxk the slaughter the US military has caused worldwide, fuck memorializing destroyers over creators, fuck your ‘Freedom isn’t Free’ bullshit, fuck funding weapons over education and Healthcare, fuck you for not questioning it, and fuck all the assholes who just go along because it’s an excuse to pour more liquor into their stupid fucking faces.”
What do some people think about Biscieglia’s posts?
Michael J. Burke, President/Founder of Brothers Before Others Inc., told Law Enforcement Today:
“As a Deputy Attorney General in New Jersey, Brian C. Biscieglia reminds me of the middle child. He is the one who gets no attention, but is willing to do anything to get it. He is as irrelevant as his title.
“Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, however, is far worse. He is the proverbial parent that ignores the problem…in this case because he is too busy destroying the State of New Jersey and the morale of the law enforcement officers who serve it.
“Put mildly: the rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rat-infested tree.”
William D. Legg, Second Vice President of the State Troopers Fraternal Association of New Jersey, Inc., was also disturbed by the social media posts and told Law Enforcement Today:
“I find Mr. Biscieglia’s social media posts extremely troubling. As a Deputy Attorney General, his radical, unhinged views and opinions begs the question is he fit to serve in his current role?
“As an executive board member for the State Troopers Fraternal Association and also the National Troopers Coalition, I am deeply concerned. Someone who is responsible to oversee investigations up to and including prosecution should be impartial and focus on just the facts.
“I fear that his views may have tainted both investigations and prosecutions. We have called for an investigation into Mr. Biscieglia’s conduct. There are policies and directives that he has undoubtedly violated.
“If one of the Troopers I represent conducted themselves in this fashion, you could guarantee the investigation would be swift, transparent, and discipline would be served.
“Attorney General Grewal boasts about integrity and accountability. Here’s his opportunity to take action and hold one of his own employees accountable.”
Law Enforcement Today obtained a copy of a June 4 letter written by Wayne Blanchard, President of the State Troopers Fraternal Association (STFA).
In the letter, which was addressed to Jennifer Davenport, Principal Law Enforcement Advisor at the Office of the Attorney General, Blanchard wrote:
“As you may be aware, the STFA represents over 1700 rank and file New Jersey state troopers. Over the past twenty-four hours, myself and other members of the STFA Executive Board have received several ‘screen shots’ of disturbing social media posts by an individual named Brian C. Biscieglia.
“These crude and crass posts include references to police officers as ‘pigs,’ degrading language with respect to our veterans, the displaying of and glorifying of criminals such as Pablo Escobar and a domestic terrorist group, and a lack of acknowledgement of the authority of our Courts.
“An inquiry has revealed that Mr. Biscieglia is employed with the Office of the Attorney as a Deputy Attorney General IV.
“It is deeply troubling that an individual who works in the criminal justice system and works beside the men and women of the STFA could be responsible for making these social media posts and maintaining such a hateful ideology.
“This calls to question Mr. Biscieglia’s integrity and credibility at [the] very least. I know that if a member of the STFA were to conduct themselves in a manner similar to Mr. Biscieglia, they would certainly be INVESTIGATED and DISCIPLINED.
“Therefore, I respectfully request that an investigation be undertaken by the Office of the Attorney General into the conduct of Mr. Biscieglia and potential violations of many policies of the office of the Attorney General, the Division of Criminal Justice, and attorney ethics codes.
“Most important, please let this letter and the attached exhibits of Mr. Biscieglia’s hateful social media posts serve as a formal letter of complaint on behalf of myself, the entire STFA Executive Board, and the over 1700 rank and file STFA members who serve the people of our great state with Honor, Duty, and Fidelity.”
