A Williamsboard user posted yesterday evening that a police officer grabbed him from behind while he was walking down Bedford Avenue & stuck his hands directly into the man’s pockets in search of something far more sinister than what was found.
Im walking down bedford avenue today with a friend of mine, and all of a sudden I feel someone grab the hood of my hoodie and pull me back. initially I thought it would be a friend. middle of the day, bedford ave, etc. turns out its the man. I turn around and he immediately reaches into my front pocket and says “oh, thats just a pen. theres been some robberies around here lately”. I dont say anything, we both turn and go our different ways.
what the fuck?
What the fuck indeed, assuming “the man” is a reference to the NYPD and not this guy or this guy. We’re pretty sure that’s illegal search and seizure, but here’s the full thread if you’d like to offer up your nonprofessional opinion.
