Five NYPD Cops Hurt In Rap Concert Brawl

June 30, 2011  | 

Five New York Police officers were injured attempting to subdue rowdy attendees at a rap concert outside Tammany Hall on the Lower East Side.

The NYPD says officers received a 911 call about a dispute at the Tammany Hall venue. Witnesses say the lights turned on in the middle of the show and dozens of NYPD officers entered the room and began telling people to leave.

Five people were arrested, including Jade Everette, the daughter of DJ and rapper Pete Rock.

Since 5 officers were injured and some semi seriously, the rapper's complaint of excessive force by the police falls flat. The police are not paid to be pummeled as some people seem to believe. It appears that those present were given an opportunity to leave but didn't respond. Instead they refused to obey a lawful order and therefore are largely responsible for any injury they sustained. Anyone knocking out an officer's tooth or breaking a nose should get prison time.
