Here’s video of an NYPD officer delivering a profane, threatening tirade at someone while appearing to be okay with them breaking the law — as long as they show him the respect he thinks he deserves when he comes around. The New York Post reports:
A uniformed NYPD sergeant was caught on video unleashing a vulgar tirade against a group of Brooklyn men — threatening them with his gun even while condoning their criminal behavior, The Post has learned.
Sgt. Lesly Charles even indicated that some criminal activity is apparently OK on his beat — as long as he’s paid proper respect.
“You guys are hustling or whatever, I ain’t got no problem with that. Listen . . . do your thing,” Charles barked during the April 28 diatribe, which is now being investigated by the city’s Civilian Complaint Review Board. “But when I come around and I speak, you f–king listen. Tell your boys.”
The surly sergeant apparently was angry over a car that was illegally parked on Ditmas Avenue in the Kensington section.
His rant against the men was recorded on a 20-minute cellphone video obtained exclusively by The Post.
The footage includes Charles berating a young man in the roadway near a silver BMW, telling him: “This is my street. All right? If you got to play tough, that’s your problem . . . I do whatever the f–k I want.”
A short time later, Charles followed the group into the nearby No. 1 Chinese Food restaurant, flanked by two plainclothes cops.
“I have the long d–k. You don’t,” the cop bragged.
“Your pretty face — I like it very much. My d–k will go in your mouth and come out your ear. Don’t f–k with me. All right?”
