Video: NYPD Officer Accused of Making Racist & Violent Comments During Arrest
Three teenagers arrested last June are accusing a New York City police officer of making racist and violent comments during their arrest and they have a cell phone audio recording of the incident.
The teenagers were arrested for disorderly conduct, the charges were later dropped.
Below is a portion of the ordeal caught on tape and provided by New York ABC affiliate WABC:
Female teen:” Racist comments like that. I don’t understand where this is coming from. I don’t understand.”
NYPD Officer: “I don’t talk to c**** who touch police officers!”
But the officer lashes out at the girl.
Female Teen: “I hope you’re daughter doesn’t see people…”
NYPD Officer: “I hope my daughter doesn’t look like you walking down Avenue B, thinking she’s a f****** hot tramp, drinking a 40oz beer. I mean are you white are you black? What the f*** are you?”
“I don’t know if it was racial profiling, once they figured out I was Russian, definitely felt some racist, hatred after that,” the teen said.
NYPD Officer: “Where are you d**** from?
Teen #2: “I’m from Brooklyn.”
NYPD Officer: “Good, you should f****** stay there. What are you f***** Russian?”
Teen #2: “You know what, officer.”
NYPD Officer: “No you’re Jewish. Go back to Israel, or where ever the f*** you’re from.”
The NYPD annouced late Wednesday afternoon that they are investigating the incident and have not yet confirmed if the voice on the tape is indeed an NYPD officer.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
