BRUTALITY AGAINST NYPD OFFICER Jim Hoffer reports on a woman who claims her serious injuries came from an aggresive NYP

Thursday, July 31, 2014
NEW YORK -- Unlike in the Staten Island choke-hold case, there is no video in this alleged police brutality incident but there are pictures and we'll warn you, they are hard to look at.

They are pictures of injuries a woman claims she received at the hands of an out-of-control NYPD Officer .

The store window designer says she heard someone from an unmarked van yell at her friend and her for jay-walking in Greenwich Village last Friday. She yelled back. She says she had no idea she had just tossed an F-bomb at an NYPD Officer.

"I didn't even know he was an officer. There were tinted windows," said Stephanie Maldonado.

But Stephanie Maldonado says by then it was too late , she claims the officer came at her in a fit of rage.

"He grabs me and puts me in handcuffs and then with handcuffs already, I feel my arm, he just throws me on the floor." She continues, "With his knee he put all his weight on my face that's why I have all these abrasions, please you are hurting me, you are hurting me."

The injuries, Stephanie says expose the brutal force allegedly used against her handcuffed, 120 pound body.

Jim Hoffer: Did you resist arrest?

Stephanie Maldonado: "No, once I knew it was police, why would I resist arrest, where am I going to go, where am I going to run to?"

Soon after being arrested, Stephanie was taken by ambulance to Beth Israel Medical Center where doctors treated her for a fractured hand, broken teeth, and facial bruises.

It's also where officers from Internal Affairs came to visit to take pictures of her injuries and ask her questions about the arresting officer, Eric Duval of the 6th Precinct.

"Officer Duval approached me; he grabs me picks me up off the ground and slams me face-first into the ground, knocking my teeth out," said Michael Gjenvick.

Gjenvick tells a similar story after he claims he was falsely arrested a few years ago by the same NYPD Officer Eric Duval.

"I was screaming very similar comments, Why are you arresting me? What are you doing? What is going on right now? Not really getting any response other than him shoving my face into the ground," adds Gjenvick.

Pictures show a handcuffed Gjenvick bleeding from his mouth, teeth broken when slammed face first into the sidewalk.

Four months ago, without admitting any wrongdoing, the city paid Gjenvick $207,000 to settle a lawsuit against Officer Duval and two fellow officers.

"Police officers like this need to go to jail, there needs to be a course of action against them," adds Gjenvick.

Now after her encounter with Officer Duval, Stephanie Maldonado has months painful physical therapy and dental surgeries ahead. She wants the NYPD to do something before it happens to someone else.

"There's something wrong, something wrong and nobody is taking action," adds Maldonado.

We have placed several calls to Officer Duval and left messages, but so far, no response.

By posting yet another story on NYPD misconduct in arrest procedure, I guess I've kind of flooded the cyber realm. However in comparison to the flood of crazy-cop madness by the NYPD, my flooding pales in comparison.

Point being law enforcement officers who take an oath should be held accountable for actions inconsistent to their mission staement which is the following: http://www.nyc.gov/html/n...sion.shtml


The MISSION of the New York City Police Department is to enhance the quality of life in our City by working in partnership with the community and in accordance with constitutional rights to enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear, and provide for a safe environment.
eek
one does not even have to question if the NYPD acts within these standards as a whole, because as it stands the answer would be a loud "NO."

I believe a lot of their disrespectful attitudes/actions/negative behavior towards specific groups is based on what some of those animal cops are taught at home.

^....and what they're taught by older cops(in many cases their daddies, brothers or uncles), on and off-duty.

It's sad but it often takes tragedy to strike for all of the other cases that weren't publicized to come to the forefront. A lot of people who work in law enforcement, including attorneys, take advantage of people's vulnerability and they do it just for fun. That's what makes this even more upsetting. They're very good at making the victim look like the aggressor. That happens a lot when you deal with racist, spineless bullies. They operate with two sets of rules and when you call them out on their own bad behavior, inconsistences and favoritism, that's when you get put back in your place. If this sounds familiar to you, it's probably because it happened in some other area of your life when you spoke out but were put in place by the powers that be....the same powers who pretended they were fearing for their lives, or offended by a remark.

Trolls be gone!
