Emboldened by liberal politicians who are more likely to attack the police in New York City, rather than defend them, another incident of police disrespect was caught on camera Halloween night in Brownsville.
Video posted by CBS shows people deliberately covering an NYPD vehicle in trash on Halloween night, while a small group of residents sit by, laugh, and taunt the two officers that were left to clean up the mess.
One resident is heard saying "trick or treat", followed by a slur.
The officers calmly show restraint as they are left to clean up trash filled boxes, broken eggs and rotting food. The officers were in the midst of responding to a domestic dispute call and were upstairs at a residence long enough for their vehicle to be vandalized.
“A lot of people call 911 in this neighborhood. They’re holding us up,” one officer said.
A nearby bodega owner said he saw the vandalism take place, but that (surprise) he was unable to give detailed descriptions of the suspects. He also said that the boxes atop of the police cruiser were momentarily set on fire, prior to the cell phone video of the incident beginning.
“It was eggs and things put on it and also the boxes they were set on over fire,” the bodega employee said.
Police have been continued targets of disrespect in New York City, with some prominent cases involving citizens dumping buckets of water on the police.
“Our great police are being disrespected, even with water dumped on them, because a mayor and governor just don’t have their backs,” the president Tweeted out last Friday.
“New York’s Finest must be cherished, respected and loved.”
Retired NYPD Detective Sergeant Joseph Giacalone said: “It’s not a prank in any sense of imagination. I mean, what they do is they slow the response time down to this patrol car or wherever they need to be which puts the public safety in danger.”
