It would seem that like many members of the public, NYPD Officers like to express themselves on Facebook – mindless of the consequences. Comments such as those made by Oficer Rey Hernandez, “wish I was there with you guys..it would be nice to crack a white guy over the head” give some insight into the racist and violent tendencies of some NYPD Officers. The comments in this particular link pertain largely to the build up of the mass arrests on Brooklyn Bridge where thousands were led onto the bridge only to be trapped by police.
Here’s another little reminder of the attitude displayed by NYPD Officers down at Wall St., as an officer tells another officer in advance of his intention (or foreknowledge through orders perhaps?) that he is going to beat protesters with batons, that evening.
