Hey Sgt., your rank and experience should have told you to always be prepared ... like take along your riot helmet?

Its easy to pass judgement Iam glad the officers are ok and the jurk is in custody.

good point are they not wearing helmets to "look less aggressive?" I HATE the NYC Mayor he will get more cops killed with his pansy way of treating criminals.

Sargent should have called the line of officers behind him to come in and create a bigger perimeter and I would have started clearing the area with close in swings stating get back get back. That is fair warning for anybody that doesn't want to engage or just hit and run. I am afraid I would have arrested a whole bunch of idiots for disorderly conduct and rioting. The mayor needs to have his ass on that front line and see what his officers are dealing with.

No video.

The crowd is way to close to the officers. It limits their options, mobility and reduces their response time.
