NYPD Disciplines White Officer Who Stopped Black Commander


www.rawstory.com

A white police officer was disciplined for acting "in a discourteous manner" when he confronted a black motorist who turned out to be one of the highest-ranking commanders in the New York City Police Department, an agency spokesman said Saturday.

Chief Douglas Zeigler, the head of the NYPD's Community Affairs Bureau and the highest uniformed black officer on the force, was off duty and sitting in his department-issued sport utility vehicle on a street in the borough of Queens on May 2 when two white police officers approached.

The encounter turned testy, and one of the officers tried to wrest open Zeigler's door, even after the three-star chief had identified himself, police spokesman Paul Browne said.

LOL

Uh-oh...Whoops! Looks like these pukes didn't get away with the racial profiling (that they all try to deny exists) this time around!

Sad part about this is just think about how many of these stories involve regular citizens, and NOTHING gets done about it.

This was a classic case of karma IMO.


At least the NYPD held the offending cop accountable, unlike the cesspool LAPD who just dismissed every last case as "non-signifigant"!



He did not specify what discipline was taken by the department. The News said the officer was stripped of his gun and badge and placed on modified duty Friday.

The incident was reported as police are being criticized for stopping and frisking record numbers of pedestrians — about 145,000 in the first quarter of this year. The majority were black or Hispanic.

No one is safe. When I got jacked-up by the police on my front porch, I was quite surprised that I was not extended some professional courtesy. Instead I was kicked repeatedly in the head and torso, tased ten times, and accused of kicking and punching the officers.
