A New York police officer's union is threatening to sue Occupy Wall Street protesters if any more of its 5,000 members are injured during demonstrations, the New York Post and New York Observer are reporting. A union spokesperson told the outlets that the union, NYPD's Sergeant’s Benevolent Association, says that over 20 officers have been injured in related Occupy protests. "Any assault on a police officer is not only punishable as a felony in the State of New York, but will also be met with swift and certain legal action by the SBA, which will seek monetary damages against any individual who causes injury to a New York City Sergeant," said the president of the group, Ed Mullins.
How long before they sue the veteran?? Some cops are just full of themselves.
"Any assault on a police officer is not only punishable as a felony
But a cop assaulting a peaceful crowd of protesters is them ``doing their job`` right? And totally legal...
Cops, don't want to get ``assaulted``?? STOP PROTECTING THE CRIMINALS. STOP ATTACKING PEACEFUL PROTESTERS.
