This is why blacks should be banned from law enforcement.

Once again, the criminal just shows his side of the story. I doubt highly that 2 plainclothes would have been called in for an illegally parked car. Profanity? Sometimes those are the only words dirtbags like the one filming understand.

Are you kidding me ? Blacks should be banned from law enforcement? Who in the hell do you think you are? We already kniw you're racists. No one race is better than the other. It's the white cops that commit the most civil rights violations and have committed way worse infractions than this SGT. What a joke!

The racist comment has no place in a civil society and does not do anything but show the ignorance of the commenter and therefore should be ignored.
I would like to know more of the context of the encounter before making a judgement on the sgt's actions. A lot of things taken out of context can on their face seem out of line while in reality are not. However, police officers do not need to use profanity and when they do I think they lose respect from the public. Police officers should act professionally at all times. The problem is, a lot of officers today act more like criminals then officers of the law and are rapidly losing any respect from the public. People don't trust police anymore because there are a few very bad apples that are still on the job because the unions and weak administrators make it hard to get rid of bad cops.

This Sgt is hilarious. Thanks for keeping us safe. So what he spoke like that. Sometimes you have to be creative to get the point accross. It's called Community Policing.

That Sgt is awesome! I would work for him anytime. Sure many hypocrites will comment that "OMG, what a bad cop", but I back that guy 100%.

Well the racist comment at the top is just pathetic. The SGT is highly unprofessional by behaving like that in a business instead of pulling the guy out. I dont see why the plain clothes cops needed the uniform to come chew a guy out for a parking issue. If he was showing his backside, the plainclothes guys should have pulled him out but instead we have this where it appears like the cops are bullying the man who "didnt do anything". The SGT either made an error in judgement or is on the dark side saying he does not care if they are hustling. Maybe he was inviting them to offer a bribe by sliding that in there. Last point, the plain clothes guy wearing sports gloves in plain clothes just looks like a dork. Sports gloves are useless in uniform and even more useless for some one trying to blend in. I wish for once I would see a video of NYPD guys acting like the most professional and highly trained officers they claim to be but all we see are bad examples. I will wager it is because of the union protection they have that they can act like fools and not get fired. All the bigger the agency, they act like they have more important things to worry about so it breeds a culture of breaking small rules and what is considered small just gets bigger and bigger. The broken windows theory also applies to enforcement of the law as was proven by LAPD under Bratton. Focus on little things and the big things start to become less and less.

Atilla....You should think about keeping your comments to yourself, especially when people like me do not see color in law enforcement...Just brothers and sisters who are all working towards the same goal. Ass.

New Yorks Finest At work.

Larry @ 5/22/2012 12:10 PM

I hope Atilla is not a policeman, if he is get a different job because all your going to do is make the good cops look bad. Mike Murphy I don't blame you for being mad and commenting back but what you said brought yourself down to Atillas ignorance level.

young112 @ 5/23/2012 7:40 PM

over a parked car, c'mon, there has to be more to the story to get that kind of reaction from the sgt.

Bruce Greinke @ 5/24/2012 6:16 PM

Real nice example in front of the seargent's subordinates. Aren't people in a supervisory position supposed to set a POSITIVE example? His demeanor was deplorable in my opinion.

TexasJustice2012 @ 5/29/2012 6:16 AM

Come on !!! This isn't about illegally parked vehicles. It's about gangsters pushing sh#$ in the SGT's district. And in dealing with these type of clowns, you can't be soft !! NOT saying that you physically abuse people or their rights. So the SGT uses profanity. Holy Crap. Bad Officer...Do you really expect for this SGT to go in and say PLEASE STOP CONDUCTING ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES ON MY STREETS ?!?!? So this officer gets down to their level. He isn't saying that it's ok to hustle. What he is doing is telling them I KNOW YOUR SH#@ stinks and I have my eye on you. Now the word will get around that this SGT doesn't play. Good Job.... And this is ONLY one part of the story.

CT LEO RET @ 5/29/2012 6:43 PM

This no place for the racial comments. We are all brothers and sisters in "blue". You haven't walked a mile, until you walked a mile in my shoes. He's talking to these citizens at a level that they can understand. If you deal with the same people on daily basis it gets old fast. I think the Sarge should get a medal for not tolerating there crap!!!!!!!!!

Hoffa45 @ 8/27/2012 6:24 PM

In the 'Ghetto' this is the only way you can come across these outstanding citizens. But how would must of you commenting know this if you haven't worked these high class law abiding areas. Good job Sgt. letting him know who's running things! 'Keeping it Real'

JO @ 8/27/2012 9:29 PM

THAT BLACK COP IS A DISGRACE TO THE UNIFORM! THE BADGE MAKES THE MAN (CORRECTION) MAKES THE A HOLE, MAYBE THATS WHY HE HAS NO LIFE, NO WIFE ETC. HES A BUM!! SOMEONE SHOULD SLAP THE CRAP OUTTA HIM. HE'S AN ABUSIVE, SPEWING PIECE OF TRASH. TOO BAD HE PASSED THE POLICE TEST.

HE SHOULD NOT HAVE A SHIELD, HE IS SHAMEFUL! THAT JERK!

SOMEONE SHOULD TREAT HIM LIKE THAT OR HIS FAMILY LIKE THAT, OH YEAH THATS RIGHT, HE DOESNT HAVE ONE OF THOSE. HES AN ALIEN DEGENERATE! KARMA WILL CATCH UP WITH HIM IN A FORM OF AN ILLNESS
