SSCC #435&#436: NYPD

The Brooklyn DA and NYPD Internal Affairs are investigating cops caught on tape beating a man wrongly suspected of trespassing in a Crown Heights synagogue, authorities said yesterday.

So the security guard screwed up and called police when he really didn’t need to.  However this is how the cops behaved upon showing up:

To put the icing on the cake.  Here is how the department has responded to the behavior of the officers.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said one of the cops involved, a 49-year-old man, “has been placed on modified assignment.”

Yup, business as usual for our anointed overlords.  When they say “To Protect and Serve” they really just are leaving off the hidden word at the end, “Themselves.”

State Sponsored Criminal #435: John Doe

#436: John Doe

Because by all means beat the hell out of someone without actually talking to them first.

    Modified assignment… Oh I know, that would be the NYPDE Soda Squad, you know, cracking down on nefariously large sugar filled drinks… {/insert scary music here…

    I note that it took three or four cops to subdue one innocent man. And they sent twelve. There’s a lot of information in that vid. For one thing, a single man on a couch can divert a dozen cops.

    Hmm; what if this had been a mosque?

    • Barron says:

      If it had been a mosque, it would have been like the Occupy episode of South Park where every cop in the tri-state area shows up for two kids.

    WTF? Since when has a haymaker been a valid method in restraining an uncooperative suspect?* Don’t they teach cops all sorts of “compliance techniques” for this exact type of situation? Or maybe pepper spray might have been a good option? But throwing down the handcuffs and boxing? F’ing stupid.

    If the suspect goes into a fighting stance, that’s when you step back and get the pepper spray or Taser out. Range minimizes the chances of injury on both sides of the encounter.

    * Assuming for the sake of argument that attempting to restrain him was at all valid in the first place.

    • Barron says:

      As Lyle correctly points out, the amount of fail and lessons that can be learned from that video are numerous and plenty.

    I don’t see TASER guns in the cops’ belts. Does NYPD issue pepper spray? No wonder they went stupid.
