The overzealous NYPD cops who arrested an on-duty mailman for shouting at them have been placed on desk duty, the NY Daily News reports.

Lt. Luis Machado who oversaw the three plainclothes cops that arrested postal employee Glen Grays was relieved of his gun and badge.

Machado and the three cops were driving recklessly in an unmarked police car when they nearly sideswiped Grays’ mail truck in Brooklyn.

The officers exited the car and got into a shouting match with Grays who was out delivering mail.

It should have ended there, but the hotheaded cops arrested Grays under a trumped up “resisting arrest” charge.

After video of Grays’ arrest went viral, the Internal Affairs Bureau launched an investigation.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said he had “strong concerns” about the officers’ actions.

“I am very interested in the charge that was made against this individual, what he was arrested for and the validity of that,” Bratton said Tuesday.

Patrick Lynch, head of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, blamed Grays for the officer’s actions.

“Everyone, including the police commissioner, should withhold public comment until all the facts are in,” Lynch said.

“No one ever has the right to resist arrest,” Lynch added. “Compliance is not optional.”

Grays, who is married to a city cop, wants an apology.

“Honestly speaking, we’re all human, we all make mistakes, but lately a lot of mistakes have been made by police officers,” Grays said.

    Desk duty = vacation with pay?
    Still it’s better than them not getting “reprimanded” at all.

  • LeBrick James

    The real serious question is… would this man have been released, the officers reprimanded, and an apology given by the Police Commissioner if this incident had NOT been caught on video?
    I think the answer is a definite NO!
    Which leads to the next question… how many thousands of black men are in jail now or have been jailed in the past in similar situations like this where there was no camera-phone video available to help them get justice?

  • the guest

    Exactly. The charge was fake to begin with. I hope the mail carrier sues the police department and if the post office didn’t back him up, sue them too and retire.

    People forget that especially in NY becoming a cop is the only resort for stability for the most ignorant and bigoted and violent of white trash with Good Enough Diplomas. And for their white trash female neighborhood girls landing a cop is the most successful thing they’ll ever achieve in life. And the ignorant cycle continues through racist white trash procreation and police department nepotism.

    Police officer should be educated and socially conscious. Not adrenaline driven racists.

    I had this happen to me. Long story, cops got cursed out by the judge at arraignment and solicitor through out case because the officers lied on official paper work to get a warrant for my arrest for not giving them my ID which the assholes had seen like a hundred times when they pulled me over hundred times.

    @Lisa – The mama was really on the phone? This is horrible?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    That was really sad! But, they keep on exposing themselves, this was not some guy with a criminal rap sheet, running from them with a shiny object in his hand, they were cold-busted! I love New Yorkers, they called the cops out! This is a prime example of citizen or black activism in the streets! Otherwise, this guy might have ended up with the usual s u i ci de as cause of death! These people may have very well kept this man alive! This goes to show, for me, that the dislike for black men has more to do with the perception (many times true, sometime not) of their member endowment, excellence in sports, and the way whyte, black, and brown women go after them on any level! Like the film In the Heat of the Night with Sidney Poitier, not much has changed since the making of this classic!

  • EbonyLolita

    If his fiancée wasn’t a cop would he be so docile!? The hell with an apology when now you have a damn record for a bogus arrest. It may say dismissal but he still has it! Black ppl stop being so forgiving to a system that doesn’t give you ANY passes!

    The positive thing out of this is that the man is still alive! No chokehold death, “suicide”, or shot in the back while being unarmed. I don’t think all police are bad but the ones who are definitely make it hard to trust them.

    Some of those boys in blue do too dayum much. Smartphones are so helpful nowadays and yet some cops still think they are the law knowing folks won’t hesitate to film now.

    They want to put our black men in the system soooo bad! Things like this happen all the time and it ruins lives of those who don’t have spokesman to stick up for them. Three of my little brothers had these same charges trumped up on them. They called the police because 2 girls ran up in my fathers house and jumped on my brothers bm. The police came on our property and immediately started harassing the boys. When they protested and tried to explain the reason why they called the police they were hit with resisting charges and put in jail and juvenile. No charges dropped either. Ohh and the actual criminals, the girls, weren’t pursued or arrested.

    And you CAN resist if it’s an unlawful arrest.
    Patrick Lynch is a scumbag piece of garbage, and he doesn’t believe there’s such a thing as a cop that makes a mistake. He seems to believe that cops are some sort of elevated status that make them gods to us mere mortals. While his position may be to defend cops, he makes it MUCH harder when he defends unlawful or illegal acts by bad cops and then blames the victim who was innocent all along.
