Here is your NY tax dollars at hard work.
You may contact the New York City Comission to Combat Police corruption by calling (212) 487-7350 during regular business hours or you may write to us at: New York City Commission to Combat Police Corruption 17 Battery Place, Suite 327 New York, NY 10004 If your complaint involves physical force, abuse of authority, discourtesy, or offensive language by a member of the NYPD, you may wish to contact the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board's complaint hotline at (800) 341-CCRB (800-341-2272).
No more can you make a friendly joke without being handcuffed and harassed by law enforcement officers. Your job is to shut up and keep walking and if you don't you are gonna get taken down. This is clear violation of the first amendment. But since when do police care about that stuff. Most think they are above the law. Make up their own rules along the way. I hope the media has been contacted about this incident because I am sure law enforcement will do something about it once the news has their hands all over it.edit on 15-4-2011 by fordrew because: (no reason given)
He said to the guy on the bike,your a grown man,you should know better.Thats a real funny joke,especially when the cops are about to ticket you.The punk was rubbing salt in the wound.He deserved a fat lip for the instigation.

i really cant believe that everyone seems to be on the guys side. The guy clearly shoots his mouth of, when he should of just kept it shut. Isn't anyone sick of people like this? I cant even leave the house anymore without running into people like this, who always have to say something sarcastic or inappropriate, especially when it has nothing to do with them. Why do people have to say anything in the first place. Its a sign of lack of intelligence and lack of manners. Why do most people just say the first stupid or rude thing that crosses their mind? I understand the human race collectively is not an evolved species but why cant people just keep their mouths shut. I hate to tell most of you this, but your not anywhere near has funny, cute or intelligent has you think you are. When you go around to actually make the pathetic effort of being sarcastic you generally find trouble. This guy should have minded his own business and he should have especially not talked junk to the cop. What did he think was gonna happen? Im not a cop lover but i have enough sense to know that the cops cant let people walk around saying whatever they want to them. There would be a loss of respect and therefore control and personally id prefer big mouths like this to learn control. People need to start being less sarcastic to each other and more respectful. And by all means please keep anything you think is funny to yourselves, because chances are its not. Give it a shot

The guy on the bike took it how it was intended, as a joke. I do this all the time, share jokes with random passers by, especially on a firday/saturday night when drunk. And you know what? I've never been assaulted becasue of it, nor been arrested becasuse I DARED to interact with another human being. (oh the thought of it!!)
So you scream repeated comments at people while they are being ticketed by the police too?.Do you guys have a secret club that targets people being ticketed.How much are the dues?
This happened on a busy street in nyc.You dont know what the decimal level was unless you were there at the scene and not watching it on video filmed from a building.The officers who were there at the scene and could determine the mans decimal level,told him he was being agressive.They could hear better than you because they were actually there.You were not there.Maybe you were the guy who filmed,who knows?Why were the guys filming this using racial slurs repeatedly?
