Nassau County Police that are reporting an African American man Daryl Jackson was assaulted by individuals who eschewed derogatory racial hate speech at him during the attack. The victim an African American man stated his attackers shouted ” go back to Africa”. See http://www.1010wins.com/AUDIO–NYPD-Cop-Charged-in-Alleged-Bias-Attack/3984995 . Let’s pray he recovers from this attack, but when four men beat you for a period of time and you are 52 years of age, the injuries and psychological scars may last forever.
The reports and sources are now saying an off duty member of the NYPD ( pictured above) may have particpated in this possible “bias” incident. To be labeled and charged as “bias” investigators must determine if the crime was motivated by racial animus. See http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2009/03/09/2009-03-09_offduty_cop_was_part_of_racist_gang_that.html That an off duty officer was present in such an attack is mind boggling. That he himself was Latino, indicates that any individual can be racist even if they themselves belong to a traditional minority group.
One thing for certain this week has been a nightmare for NYPD public relations. First the ” mafia cops” are sent to jail see http://www.newsday.com/news/local/newyork/ny-nycops0307,0,3864438.story.
Than another disgraced former cop was involved in a double shooting. See http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2009/03/08/2009-03-08_dirty_excop_jerry_bowens_nabbed_after_sl.html. Telling on this guy, is that newspapers reports he owns a 2009 Camry, a Hummer and a Denali. Owning such expense cars certianly is circumstantial evidence of extraordinary income far and above the payscale of the average officer.
