The NYPD’s Internal Affairs unit was looking into the report that the officers repeatedly struck a shackled and handcuffed patient on a stretcher before the New York Fire Deparment EMTs intervened to end the beating, an NYPD spokesman said.
He declined to confirm details of the July 20 incident at the 67th Precinct station house in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, which was first reported by the New York Daily News.
Fire Department officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Citing an FDNY report, the Daily News said the police officers and the EMTs had been called to the station house to help transport the patient, who was combative and banging his head against the wall, to a nearby hospital.
The emotionally disturbed patient spit on the officers and swore at them, and they responded by hitting him in the face, pulling him off the stretcher to the ground and then hurling him back onto the stretcher, the Daily News said.
An excerpt of the Fire Department report quoted in the Daily News said: “Pt. (patient) was struck in the face by an officer … pt. Spit in the face of an officer, whereupon the officer punched the pt. in the face multiple times.”
He spit at the officer again, and more officers started slugging him, the report said.
“Three cops began to punch the patient in the face, EMS (had) to get in the middle of it to intervene. Pt’s wounds and injuries cleaned in the (ambulance),” the report said.
Некий поц был арестован и прикручен наручниками к носилкам. Ему не понравилось и он стал обзывать мордокопых, плюнул в них. Мордокопым тоже не понравилось, тогда они стали его бить прямо в наручниках, да с оттяжечкой, да все вместе. От смертоубийства чмошника спасли пожарники, которые стали отбивать закдержанного у копов! Так бы и сошло с рук (все произошло 20 июля), но все же произошла утечка негрофиллам типа Шарптона и понеслось дерьмо по трубам. Тем не менее, пока никаких санкций против копов. Демократия!
Это все происходит на фоне того, что полицейские на днях задушили еще одного поца, который продавал на улице отдельные сигареты (поштучно), что запрещено. авалимли, придушили и не очень слушали сдавленные крики, что тяжело дышать. Так и помер за продажу сигарет.
The New York City medical examiner's office Friday confirmed what demonstrators had been saying for weeks: A police officer's choke hold on a man being arrested for selling loose cigarettes killed him.
Eric Garner, 43, died July 17 after being confronted by police on Staten Island for allegedly selling cigarettes illegally.
During the encounter, Garner raised both hands in the air and told the officers not to touch him. Seconds later, a video shows an officer behind him grab the 350-pound man in a choke hold and pull him to the sidewalk, rolling him onto his stomach.
"I can't breathe! I can't breathe!" Garner said repeatedly, his cries muffled into the pavement.
The cause of Garner's death was "compression of neck (choke hold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police," said Julie Bolcer, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office. The death was ruled a homicide.
Полицейские тут же прыгнули за своих и заявили, чтьо душили "по закону", ничего не нарушили и вообще дело политически мотивировано
A New York police union leader denied on Tuesday that officers used a choke hold while trying to arrest a Staten Island man who later died, saying the coroner's finding in the case was politically motivated.
"This was not a choke hold," Pat Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said at a press conference, referring to a July 17 incident in which Eric Garner, who was accused of selling illegal cigarettes, died in a scuffle with police.
"It was a big man who had to be brought to the ground to be placed under arrest by shorter police officers," Lynch said.
Ну а чтобы слова звучали весомее, главный свидетель и автор ролика, который привел к расследованию дела, был арестован якобы за ношение оружия. Чувак не ангел, несомненно, но время ареста..... Не при нарушении чего-то, а в результате конкретной слежки
The man who recorded video of a fatal police chokehold in New York City has been arrested on gun charges, police said Sunday.
Police said 22-year-old Ramsey Orta was arrested Saturday night on Staten Island, a few blocks from where officers confronted his friend Eric Garner on July 17.
Orta, whose recording of an officer restraining Garner with a chokehold fueled outcry against the police, is charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Police said Orta had a previous weapon conviction that prohibited him from possessing a firearm.
He is due in court this month on robbery charges stemming from a May arrest and an assault charge from an arrest three days before Garner's death, according to court records.
Зато мне сейчас напомнят про Казань, где ментов всё же уволили и некоторых посадили. А потом посоветуют ехать в Москву по непонятным причинам.
