The NYPD Threatens To Sue Occupy Wall Street Protesters

PHOTO - NYPD thug Anthony Bologna shows some love for certain protesters.

Here's some afternoon comedy courtesy of the NYPD:

New York Post

"Deeply concerned" police sergeants are coming out swinging today against obnoxious Wall Street protesters, saying they plan to "pursue legal action" against demonstrators who injure any of its members.

Ed Mullins, president of the NYPD's Sergeant’s Benevolent Association, said his group plans to pursue legal claims against Occupy Wall Street protesters should they cause injury to any of its 5,000 members.

“In light of the growing violence attendant to the 'Occupy' movements across the country, particularly as evidenced by the recent events in Oakland, I am compelled to place these so-called 'occupiers' on notice that physical assaults on police officers will not be tolerated."

"I am deeply concerned that protesters will be emboldened by the recent rash of violent acts against police officers in other cities. New York’s police officers are working around the clock as the already overburdened economy in New York is being drained by 'occupiers' who intentionally and maliciously instigate needless and violent confrontations with the police."

police is brutal apparatus for collecting taxes.
any other role is purely wishful thinking.

to serve and protect is actually a pledge for the tax collectors.

Arresting protesters is UnConstitutional. What part of NO LAW do police and politicians NOT understand?
Oct 27, 2011 at 1:55 PM | Unregistered CommenterAstraea
Although I do not advocate (unnecessary) violent acts against cops, I do feel that if the cops are are abusing their power and purposefully harming the protesters, the protesters do have a right to defend themselves physically and LEGALLY. Therefore, if ANY protestor is physically injured or harmed by the cops, they should exercise their right to sue. Let's face it, too many times the cops are guilty of using excess and unprovoked brutality. Perhaps if there are enough class action lawsuits, some of the violence would stop.

Sgt. Raymond Brickley, one of the early targets of the probe, was caught on a wiretap talking about fixing tickets, sources said. Brickley, assigned to the 42nd Precinct, is an official with the Sergeants Benevolent Association.

So the donut sucking Pinkerton thugs are suing their victims? How laughably corrupt.


How many donuts do you have to eat before you can legally undermine someone's constitutional rights and commit felonious assault and battery against someone engaged in lawful assembly?

The twisted irony here is that thenpolice are advancing the interests of the very same Wall Street criminals who are looting their pensions.

That's a really good PR manoeuvre by the NYPD- Men belonging to an organization with a long history of brutality, some dressed in body armor, armed with guns, batons, tasers, backed by the iron fist of the state (military force if necessary) trying to play the victim card and threatening to sue peaceful unarmed citizens exercising their inalienable 1st Amendment Right. Just wow

"New York’s police officers are working around the clock as the already overburdened economy in New York is being drained..." Oh really? How much has Wall Street drained from the taxpayer. There will be no end until the perps are held accountable

Never thought I would see the day it took two white and one black police officer to take down one white woman with pink hair. The law suit they are filing is to cover the law suit they will probably be getting for negligence. and yes I am being a bit sarcastic.

Who Do the White Shirt Police Report to at Occupy Wall Street Protests?

Financial Giants Put New York City Cops On Their Payroll

If you’re a Wall Street behemoth, there are endless opportunities to privatize profits and socialize losses beyond collecting trillions of dollars in bailouts from taxpayers. One of the ingenious methods that has remained below the public’s radar was started by the Rudy Giuliani administration in New York City in 1998. It’s called the Paid Detail Unit and it allows the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street corporations, including those repeatedly charged with crimes, to order up a flank of New York’s finest with the ease of dialing the deli for a pastrami on rye.

The corporations pay an average of $37 an hour (no medical, no pension benefit, no overtime pay) for a member of the NYPD, with gun, handcuffs and the ability to arrest. The officer is indemnified by the taxpayer, not the corporation.

New York City gets a 10 percent administrative fee on top of the $37 per hour paid to the police. The City’s 2011 budget called for $1,184,000 in Paid Detail fees, meaning private corporations were paying wages of $11.8 million to police participating in the Paid Detail Unit. The program has more than doubled in revenue to the city since 2002.

The taxpayer has paid for the training of the rent-a-cop, his uniform and gun, and will pick up the legal tab for lawsuits stemming from the police personnel following illegal instructions from its corporate master. Lawsuits have already sprung up from the program.

When are these cops going to arrest the real criminals, the ones running banks on wall street?
Oct 27, 2011 at 7:03 PM | Unregistered CommenterHarry Johnson
I'd be willing to bet any injured cops are injured by their fellow officer's "friendly fire" or Agent Provacateurs.

In any case breaking up a Peaceful Assembly is a direct and flagrant violation of the First Amendment.

I had to laugh at this...THEY want to sue us?! This is unbelievable.
I flashed back to the cartoon SUPER CHICKEN with the punch line directed at Fred Super Chickens side kick... every time Fred got hurt S,C., would look at Fred and say,"You knew the job was dangerous when you took it".
As a child growing up we were taught to respect cops, that goes both ways - if you do't respect us then HOW can we respect them? They are macing young women, they are punching peaceful protesters, they SHOOT your pets, they are insane. They dress as if they are in the middle of a war...pusses.
I KNOW this will bring more people out to protest...we will have our protest this Saturday in Dubuque...smash the FEDS.

There is an extra amount of tension facing these NYPD police officers, in particular over police of the nation's other major metropolitan areas. These NYPD individuals are running interference for what, since 9-11-2001, has become the most corrupt and vile police department in this country. The department, in turn, is running interference for the 9-11-2001 perps. This corruption stems from the FACT that financial entities within NYC arranged and carried out the demolition of the WTCs, I,II, and 7. Although Bush power retriggered at least one building. And the chief of police and that c___ Giuliani KNOW the names of the people who set charges in building WTC6 just before firing these charges off as well. Mass murder. Insurance fraud. Accessory after the fact. Take your pick. Each one of the NYPD police is aiding and abetting in the looting of the country. Let them sue. Then respond. But, be nice. And don't swear in front of the old ladies. Over 3,000 people and their families deserve justice and the rest of the nation deserves to live with a government that stays out of habitually committing felonies like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Or the Bush family.

Don't nail cops. Teach them the errors in their ways. Some of them are very fucked up. From the top, down. Then there are the fucked up cop wannabes like the dope who shot Scott Olson. This idiot shot a U.S. Marine who was defending his country against criminals and a corrupted justice department. I pity the fool.

NYC Police Captain Tony Baloney has filed for permanent disability because he dislocated his trigger finger spraying down dangerous criminals with pepper spray. He will be awarded the Distinguished Merit Award with an oak leaf for valor. He will be paid $9,000 a month with full benefits as well as $4,500 a month for Social Security Disability for his injuries. He is being transferred to the JP Morgan Protective Division where he will earn another $10,000 per month on light duty. He will continue to fight crime although he can only hold one doughnut at a time with his disability.

How many times has NYC police force been turned inside out in the past? Anyone remember how many cops lost their jobs over Frank Lucas, This time however they will be rewarded with pensions and lucrative security jobs on Wall Street.

This is about covering for ALL the white collar crime of The Big Apple. They preset the charges and blew up and killed over 3,000 people to make money instead of paying to demolish WTC I and II. Numerous investigations of other white collar crime were destroyed in WTC 7 and a massive T-bill and securities fraud case was destroyed. Obummer hired the most criminally ineffective turd in the justice department to be AG and carry on with the Bush legacy;destruction of the economy of the U.S. and Japan. The American people did not start WWII with Japan. The sneaky garbage in the State department did. Now, we have psycho-Hillary to revive that tradition.

Tony Baloney is a real "man" when it comes to beating up WOMEN. Someone needs to check into his HOME LIFE, how many bruises on his WIFE? IF he has one ..... how often has she been hospitalized?

Al Queda today praised the Oakland Police for attacking peaceful Citizens exercising their RIGHTS and crippling a MARINE.
Al Queda awarded a SILVER CRESCENT "in absentia" to Tony Baloney of the NYPD for his repression of FEMALES
in the finest tradition of Taliban "Morality Police".
Al Queda also praised the PAID SHILLS who are flooding comment sections with derision of OWS and FREEDOM.
Al Queda welcomed these LACKEYS into the WAR on FREEDOM.

Understand who you are dealing with.
The NYPD, having refused to acknowledge the fraud that is 911 and caused so much damage to them and especially the New York fire department during that criminal episode, now morphs into Pinkerton thugs who violate and undermine the constitution and commit acts of thuggery and felony assault against people simply trying to constitutionally protest endemic fraud and theft.
The city of New York's chief executive himself is a Wall Street thief whose entire business model (starting with the Bloomberg terminal) was and is a fraud designed to selectively provide insider trading information to those, especially corporations, hedge funds and other thieves, who pay his fee.

NYPD "threatens" to sue? How moronic! That kind of lawsuit will be thrown out on even the lowest court level. 4th Amendment litmus test is still the standard unless the court has a bought and paid for judge which most do today. A dog with a note in his mouth could answer the complaint if done properly and this wouldn't get past first base.

If they are spending money on this kind of frivolous stuff I would fire the police chief and his cronies for misappropriation of funds.

Hey Tony Baloney,we'll get YOU for AIDING AND ABETTING AFTER THE FACT if you don't round up those of the NYC financial community that did 911 with Bush41&43. Your goose is cooked as far as 'have a nice day' goes. You have been bad. Looks like too much authority and vice. Too much aiding and abetting for pay. Get an expensive lawyer because you wouldn't be tried in NYC or NJ.

It isn't as if any rational person still believes the USA is a free country. Think about it. No-warrant wire taps, indefinite detention of citizens without charges, approval of rendition of prisoners and torture, stop and frisk without probable cause, search and seizure without a warrant, no-knock entry, confiscation and destruction of cameras that might have been used to film police acting illegally, police brutality, police shootings that go without investigation, managed news, and the civil-rights destroying "Patriot" Act.

Acts of police behaving illegally, with shootings, Tasers, and unwarranted violence now appear almost daily. Rarely are these offenses punished. Most often "an investigation" is claimed, but soon forgotten.

In addition, the USA, with 5% of the world population, has 25% of all of the prisoners in the world. That means the USA has the most people in prison of any nation in history. Even by percentage of residents incarcerated, not just sheer numbers. USA is # 1

Does any of that sound like a free country?

As Dwight D. Eisenhower said about communism, "It's like slicing sausage. First they out off a small slice. That isn't worth fighting over. Then they take another small slice that isn't worth fighting over. Then another and another. Finally, all you have left is the string and that isn't worth fighting over, either.
