Many people were outraged after a viral video of a female officer from the New York Police Department throwing what appears to be a minor girl out of the subway station in Brooklyn.
The controversial incident caused a lot of public reactions. Most people labeled the vide as a clear abuse of power on the officer’s part and even suggested that the officer had bullied the teen girl. Take a look at the following video:
Conflict reports were surrounding the question of why the girl was removed from the subway station. But the New York Police Department has released a statement to The Shade Room saying that the video does not show the whole incident.
“The video posted on social media did not record the entire incident. Specifically, it did not show the female attempt to jump over the turnstile without paying the fare,” Lt. John Grimpel said.
“As a result of this action, the officer approached the female and instructed her to properly enter the system by swiping a MetroCard. She was asked multiple times to pay the fare which she refused and was physically removed from the Transit System. A summons was not issued in regard,” John concluded.
History repeats itself. November of the last year, four NYPD officers surrounding who were a woman of color in the same subway station. And now this.
It seems like they are still officers with inappropriate actions (putting hands on the minor girl). There’s no need to get physical or violent with the young lady. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
