NYPD Union Protests Internal Affairs Actions Toward Beaten Sgt.

November 21, 2013  | 

The NYPD sergeants union wants the head of the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau fired because IAB investigators searched the car of an off-duty cop brutally beaten outside a Queens diner on Sunday, the New York Post reports.

The union on Tuesday demanded Chief Charles Campisi be canned for treating Sgt. Mohamed Deen like a suspect. They not only rifled through the BMW, but also interrogated his wife while he was in a medically induced coma recovering at Jamaica Hospital on Sunday, the union said.

The NYPD declined to talk about the car search, but said it is standard procedure to interview witnesses to a crime that results in a member of the department being severely injured.

Deen, 40, has recovered enough to start speaking to relatives, who have been keeping a hospital vigil.

Ok, NYPD is investigating a serious crime and are attempting to put the "puzzle" together and the union is crime foul play because the investigators are trying to do their job. Why not everyone get on the same playing field and try to solve this mess. I have been a union member for years but sometimes the mind set is riduclous.

The only serious crimes IAB investigates is dirty cops. Or cops they want to be dirty or cops they think are dirty etc etc. IAB looks to jam up cops that is the mindset NYPD has and for good reason

I guess its ok to violate the U.S.Constitution at NYPD. With no probable cause the search of the vehicle is illegal and those officers should be prosecuted for civil rights violations. If they had probable cause then they could easily have obtained a search warrant and do whatever the warrant authority allows. It sounds from NYPD's own comments that the vehicle search was illegal. The interview of any witnesses is fine and was well within the law. Personally, I think the only reason this guy was investigated was because of his name, due to the current police profiling policy by NYPD. Even NYPD admits in the Newspaper article the off duty officer was the victim and not under any kind of investigation nor will he be. I trust the union here.
