(Reuters) – A New York Police Department campaign to burnish its image via social media instead produced a flood of pictures of apparent police brutality and tweets critical of the force being shared at a rate of thousands an hour.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said on Wednesday he would continue and expand the NYPD Twitter campaign a day after it backfired, triggering an outpouring of negative images including police violence at New York’s Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, an NYPD officer pointing a gun at a dog, and an officer asleep in a subway car.

“The reality of policing is that oftentimes our actions are lawful, but they look awful,” Bratton told a news briefing at New York City Hall.

“Most of those photos that I looked at are old news,” said Bratton, appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio to take over from Ray Kelly, who served for 12 years under de Blasio’s predecessor, Michael Bloomberg.

NYPD commissioner welcomes attention from disastrous #myNYPD hashtag

FILE - In this May 1, 2012, file photo, a police lieutenant swings his baton at Occupy Wall Street activists in New York. This photo is among the many put on Twitter in response to a New York Police Department request for Twitter users to share pictures of themselves posing with police officers. The NYPD sent a tweet on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, saying it might feature the photographs on its Facebook page. The responses soon turned ugly when Occupy Wall Street tweeted a photograph of cops battling protesters with the caption

The New York Police Department’s attempt at using social media to connect with constituents on Tuesday went…well, let’s say awry.

An initial tweet asked people to post photos of themselves with police officers along with the hashtag #myNYPD. Obviously this went poorly, because obviously it was going to go poorly, because these things can really only go poorly (we’ll get back to that in a moment). In response, people sent in lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of photos of New York police officers doing violent things to people. (Like the photo at the top of this post. It’s almost two years old, but thanks to the #myNYPD hashtag, it has been everywhere over the last 24 hours.)

William J. Bratton, the police commissioner, said he isn’t too bothered by the reaction:

“I kind of welcome the attention,” Bratton said Wednesday as the negative tweets kept coming nearly 24 hours after cops invited the cyber-submissions….

“Most of the pictures I looked at, they’re old news,” Bratton said, tossing previous NYPD administrations under the patrol car. “They’ve been out there for a long time.”

Despite Eight Ongoing Criminal/Civil Investigations of JPMorgan, the Bank’s a Law Enforcement Partner With the NYPD

By Pam Martens: November 4, 2013

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly Inside the Lower Manhattan Security Coordination Center

Nothing reveals the incestuous, one-percent-mindset that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly have with Wall Street than the next to last photo at this link. The photo shows an employee of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s number one target for financial fraud investigations, JPMorgan Chase, working inside a high security spy center in Lower Manhattan to — wait for it — help the New York City Police Department catch crooks.

While most law enforcement bodies around the U.S. would instantly weed out serial wrongdoers as job hires, Bloomberg and Kelly have created an art form out of joint policing ventures with Wall Street, operating both a rent-a-cop program with Wall Street as well as pumping at least $150 million of taxpayer money into the Lower Manhattan Security Coordination Center where Wall Street employees sit elbow to elbow with NYPD officers.

Under some Orwellian concept of citizen surveillance, the very Wall Street banks that proved they were a far greater threat to the United States than any foreign terrorist when they collapsed the Nation’s financial system in 2008, are part of a joint venture with the NYPD to use high-tech spy equipment to monitor the comings and goings of citizens in the streets of Manhattan – the majority of which, unlike Wall Street, are law abiding citizens.

Last week, JPMorgan Chase revealed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it is under eight separate investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice. Some of the investigations involve potentially criminal matters ranging from allegations of hiring well-connected family members to get business in Asia; turning a blind eye to fraudulent transactions that Bernard Madoff ran through his business bank account at JPMorgan; rigging the Libor interest rate index; manipulating energy trading markets; gambling in London with insured deposits (London Whale episode); to improper credit derivatives and mortgage bond sales.

One of the most serious crimes for which JPMorgan is under investigation is the decades-long Ponzi scheme perpetrated by Bernard Madoff, which stole $17 billion in actual cash from thousands of investors while producing account statements showing the fictitious portfolios had grown to $64 billion. The fraud left hundreds of families destitute or forced to move in with children.

Outside of Madoff and his employees, no one had a better birds-eye view of this operation than JPMorgan Chase, the bank where Madoff held his business bank account for 22 years. According to lawsuits filed by the Trustee handling the Madoff recovery funds, Irving Picard, JPMorgan knew that Madoff was engaged in an investment advisory business for a broad array of customers but the Madoff bank account that JPMorgan Chase oversaw never showed a payment going to clear or process a stock trade.

Wall Street’s Biggest Banks Had a Trading Scheme With Madoff

By Pam Martens: October 30, 2013

The trial of five former employees of Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi operation is currently playing out in Manhattan as the U.S. Justice Department weighs bringing charges against JPMorgan Chase, where Madoff had his primary business banking account, for ignoring flashing red lights that a fraud was taking place.

According to lawsuits filed by Irving Picard, the Trustee handling the Madoff recovery fund, JPMorgan knew that Madoff was supposed to be engaged in managing stock portfolios for hundreds of clients. JPMorgan even created structured investments that allowed investors to make leveraged bets on the returns achieved by Madoff. But the Madoff business bank account that JPMorgan Chase oversaw, showed billions of dollars in cash being wired in and out but no payments ever going to any party engaged in processing or clearing a stock trade. Under Wall Street’s Know Your Customer Rule, the activity in the account should have been reported to U.S. regulators because it was completely incompatible with transactions that would be happening in a legitimate investment advisory account.

On October 28, 2008, less than two months before the Madoff Ponzi scheme collapsed following a confession by Madoff, JPMorgan finally did reveal its suspicions to a regulator that Madoff was running a fraud – to the Serious Organized Crime Agency. That regulator is based in the United Kingdom. According to Picard, JPMorgan never reported its suspicions to U.S. authorities.

But there are four other major Wall Street firms and their high-priced lawyers who have some explaining to do. According to prosecutors trying the current case against the five former employees, Madoff was funneling tens of millions of dollars that he was stealing from his investment advisory clients into his broker-dealer operation. Madoff has heretofore said this was a legitimate business. One such check for $31 million was dated December 28, 1999.

That was a little more than three months after Madoff started a business with four of the biggest names on Wall Street, effectively putting these primary dealers to the U.S. government’s Treasury auctions in business with the biggest financial felon in U.S. history.

On September 14, 1999, Citigroup’s Smith Barney, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs partnered with Madoff to compete with the New York Stock Exchange in a venture called Primex Trading. When Wall Street behemoths create a joint venture with a much smaller firm like Madoff’s, it would be expected that the top law firms on Wall Street would have been crawling all over its books and conducting a thorough due diligence.(Major European banks were harmed in the Madoff collapse. No major Wall Street bank had any serious exposure.)

Madoff had purchased the rights to a new technology called Financial Auction Network (FAN) created by Christopher Keith, a 17-year veteran of technology creation at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Keith had retired from the NYSE and started a technology think tank in lower Manhattan in the early 1990s called Exchange Lab. FAN was one of the early technology offerings and the rights to develop it were bought by Madoff, ostensibly with stolen customer funds it now appears. The firm that emerged was Primex Trading, a division of Primex Holdings.

Was 9/11 landing gear found beside mosque lowered there by opponents of development? Extraordinary claims following stunning find

  • 5-foot piece of landing gear from one of the planes from 9/11 was discovered just blocks from Ground Zero
  • Found near 51 Park Place, the site of the Islamic center Park51
  • Lawyer for mosque developer calls the part discovery a ‘gimmick’
  • Police probing whether the piece was intentionally planted by opponents to the Islamic community center
  • Area is being treated like a crime scene as investigators search for human remains

New York City police are looking into the extraordinary claims that the landing gear from a 9/11 plane, found this week in downtown Manhattan, could have been planted by opponents to the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

The airplane part was discovered wedged between 51 Park Place, the site of the proposed 13-story Islamic cultural center Park51, and 50 Murray Street, a luxury apartment building in TriBeCa.

Now a lawyer for the proposed religious site has suggested to the New York Post that the piece was intentionally placed near the center as part of a ‘gimmick.’

Found: part of a landing gear from one of the 9/11 planes was discovered wedged between buildings with a mysterious rope around it

Found: part of a landing gear from one of the 9/11 planes was discovered wedged between buildings with a mysterious rope around it

 

After news emerged this week about the discovery of the part, a lawyer for Park51 called the find a ‘gimmick’ organized by those who seek to block the center’s development.

 

‘I don’t believe it for one minute,’ said Adam Leitman Bailey, the lawyer for the project’s lead developer, Sharif El-Gamal, in comments tothe Post.

 

‘I think this is a prank, and there’s no way this all of a sudden showed up. It’s hard to believe they now have found evidence that wasn’t put there recently.’

 

New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said that police would consider the possibility that the part had intentionally been situated between the two buildings.

‘We are also looking at the possibility that it was lowered by a rope.. We are not ruling it out … there’s a rope that is intertwined in the part itself,’ he told reporters at a press conference late on Friday.

Park51 (originally named Cordoba House) is a planned 13-story Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan.
50 Murray Street New York, NY

Discovery: The piece was found between Park51 (left, an artistic rendering of the planned project) and 50 Murray Street (right, a luxury apartment building in TriBeCa)

 

Controversy: Instead of the state of the art facility in the plans, the Islamic center underwent renovations and opened to the public on Sep. 21, 2011 (pictured an NYPD officer standing guard on the center's opening night)

The piece was discovered on Wednesday, 11 years after the terrorist attacks on September 11 when two Boeing 767s, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, crashed into the World Trade Center Twin Towers around 9:00am.

Within two hours of the attack, both towers collapsed – killing 2,753 people in New York.

But the developer himself tried to downplay the possible controversy over the part’s proximity to the religious center.

‘Adam Leitman Bailey has no authority to speak on behalf of Sharif El-Gamal, Soho Properties or Park51,’ a spokesman for El-Gamal said.

‘We are cooperating fully with the appropriate authorities to make sure this piece of evidence is removed with care as quickly and effectively as possible.’

The plans for Park51 have attracted considerable attention given the center’s location in the neighborhood near Ground Zero.

When plans for the center became public in 2010, opponents said they didn’t want a mosque so close to where Islamic extremists attacked, but supporters said the center would promote harmony between Muslims and followers of other faiths.

The current building that stands at the location is from the 1850s. It had been previously owned by Burlington Coat Factory before it was damaged in the September 11 attacks.

 

Piece of ‘9/11 plane’ found in Manhattan

 

The developer plans to construct a 13-story, 4,000-square-foot center with a 500-seat auditorium, theater, performing arts a fitness center and swimming pool among the amenities. Construction costs have been estimated to top $100 million.

 

The prayer space for the Muslim community would accommodate 1,000–2,000 people.

But the plans sparked outrage from the families of 9/11 victims and the developer has since pared down the development.

 

In September 2011, the renovated building was opened to the public. The space remains under renovation.

The space now features a prayer center and space for artistic events and lectures but not the ambitious fitness and recreation center the developer had hoped to rival the 92 Street Y, on the Upper East Side.

The twisted metal part – jammed in an 18-inch-wide, trash-laden passageway between the buildings – has cables and levers on it and is about 5 feet high, 17 inches wide and 4 feet long, police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Friday.

‘It’s a manifestation of a horrific terrorist act a block and a half away from where we stand,’ he said after visiting the alley.

Commissioner Kelly said in a news conference on Friday that surveyors were working in the narrow space on Wednesday when they came across an unidentified mechanical part.

Police received a report about the discovery, but officers who responded were not sure what the large piece of metal was resting in a very confined space littered with debris.

 

The FBI, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Medical Examiner’s Office were notified.

Pilots who were consulted ruled that the large piece of steel measuring 5 feet by 4 feet by 17 inches at one time was part of a plane’s landing gear.

Off-Duty Cop Kills Son, Boyfriend, Self: Sources

NBCNewYork

An off-duty police officer shot to death her 1-year-old son and her boyfriend, who is believed to be the child’s father, before taking her own life in a Brooklyn home early Monday, authorities said.

The officer’s 19-year-old son managed to escape out a back window and find police; he was not injured.

Police responded to the home on East 56th Street in Flatbush after receiving reports of shots fired shortly before 8:30 a.m.

When authorities entered the first-floor apartment, they found the officer’s 33-year-old boyfriend dead in the doorway. The bodies of the 43-year-old officer, a 13-year cop with the 108th precinct, and the child were found in the bedroom.

All three victims died of gunshot wounds, authorities said.

Fans of justice will be glad to hear that New York City will pay for all those books and all that media equipment that the police trashed when it famously raided the Occupy Wall Street camp on November 15, 2011. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York just announced a $366,700 settlement in Occupy’s case against the city for the damage caused during the raid as well as all of the legal fees the movement’s poured into seeking retribution. Sound like a lot? Let’s itemize those expenses for you:

The People’s Library ($47,000 in damages, $186,350 in legal fees)

Ray Bradbury probably turned over in his grave, when the New York Police Department went after the 5,500 donated books that Occupy was keeping for the people in Zuccotti Park. First covered in the media by The New Yorker, the so-called People’s Library was so popular it even earned its own blog in the early days of the movement and maintained it long after Zuccotti was empty and the majority of its books destroyed. As Occupy’s lawyer put it, the settlement stood for a lot more than books. “This was not just about money, it was about constitutional rights and the destruction of books,” Normal Siegel told The Village Voice.

Michael Premo was found not guilty of assaulting an officer after video evidence contradicted police testimony.

In the first jury trial stemming from an Occupy Wall Street protest, Michael Premo was found innocent of all charges yesterday after his lawyers presented video evidence directly contradicting the version of events offered by police and prosecutors.Premo, an activist and community organizer who has in recent months been a central figure in the efforts of Occupy Sandy, was one of many hundred people who took part in a demonstration in Lower Manhattan on December 17 of 2011, when some protesters broke into a vacant lot in Duarte Square in an attempt to start a new occupation.

After police broke up the action in Duarte Square, hundreds of protesters marched north,
playing a game of cat and mouse with police on foot and on scooters, who tried to slow and divide the column of marchers. At 29th Street near Seventh Avenue, police finally managed to trap a large number of marchers, kettling them from both sides of the block with bright orange plastic netting. After holding the crowd in the nets for some time, a few people managed to escape, and police rushed in to the crowd with their hands up. In the commotion, Premo fell to the ground and attempted to crawl out of the scrum. (Covering the march, I was also kettled on this block for a time, though I only witnessed Premo’s arrest from a distance.)

Police were kettling protesters on 29th Street using orange nets when they arrested Michael Premo.

In the police version of events, Premo charged the police like a linebacker, taking out a lieutenant and resisting arrest so forcefully that he fractured an officer’s bone. That’s the story prosecutors told in Premo’s trial, and it’s the general story his arresting officer testified to under oath as well.But Premo, facing felony charges of assaulting an officer, maintained his innocence. His lawyers, Meghan Maurus and Rebecca Heinegg, set out to find video evidence to contradict it. Prosecutors told them that police TARU units, who filmed virtually every moment of Occupy street protests, didn’t have any footage of the entire incident. But Maurus knew from video evidence she had received while representing another defendant arrested that day that there was at least one TARU officer with relevant footage. Reviewing video shot by a citizen-journalist livestreamer during Premo’s arrest, she learned that a Democracy Now cameraman was right in the middle of the fray, and when she tracked him down, he showed her a video that so perfectly suited her needs it brought a tear to her eye.

NYPD lied under oath to prosecute Occupy activist

An Occupy Wall Street activist was acquitted of assaulting a police officer and other charges on Thursday after jurors were presented with video evidence that directly contradicted the NYPD’s story.

Michael Premo was found innocent of all charges this week in regards to a case that stems from a December 17, 2011 Occupy Wall Street demonstration in Lower Manhattan. For over a year, prosecutors working on behalf of the New York Police Department have insisted that Premo, a known artist and activist, tackled an NYPD officer during a protest and in doing so inflicted enough damage to break a bone.

During court proceedings this week, Premo’s attorney presented a video that showed officers charging into the defendant unprovoked. The Village Voice reports that jurors deliberated for several hours on Thursday and then elected to find Premo not guilty on all counts, which included a felony charge of assaulting an officer of the law.

Since his arrest, supporters of Premo have insisted on his innocence. “They’re trying to make something out of nothing and they’re trying to charge him with something that didn’t actually occur,” colleague Rachel Falcone told Free Speech Radio News this week.

After being arrested, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office presented Premo with a deal that would have let him off the hook by pleading guilty to lesser charges. Maintaining his innocence, however, he was determined to fight the case in court.

Premo was “facing serious charges and potential substantial jail sentence, even though he never should have been arrested at all,” his supporters claimed in a post published on The Laundromat Project website.

NYC to Round Up Mentally Ill Before They Commit Crimes

Written by 

In its latest Big Brother endeavor, New York City has begun a program to round up the city’s mentally ill and ensure they are taking their court-ordered medications. The New York Post reports that police will be armed with a list of the most-wanted mentally ill and a tracking system, and will force those deemed ill to go to a hospital.

The new policy comes as a result of two recent subway deaths in which the victims were pushed onto the train tracks by mentally ill suspects.

“After the Queens subway attack, the [city] decided to take a proactive approach to track down the most dangerous mental-health patients that currently have mental-hygiene warrants” out for them, one law enforcement official said in the Post report.

The first incident involved a homeless man named Naeem Davis, who cited different motives for his pushing a complete stranger onto the tracks, including voices in his head and being angry at the loss of his favorite boots.

The second case involved assailant Erika Menendez, who targeted an Iranian man based on her misguided political convictions. She told the police that she targeted Sunando Sen and pushed him in front of an oncoming 7 train in Queens because she “hated Hindus and Muslims since 2001 since they put down the Twin Towers.” She added, “I have been beating them up since.”

There are currently 25 names on the most-wanted list of mentally ill. The process involves the issuance of a specific type of warrant that permits the police to arrest individuals, even if they have not committed a crime, simply for not attending court-ordered therapy.

The Washington Times reports:

The arrest warrants the police are pursuing do not mean the targets are wanted for crimes, but rather for avoiding court-ordered mental-health treatment, according to the Post. Police in the city’s Real Time Crime Center are tasked with the roundup using advanced technology. Once tracked down, the suspects then will be forcibly taken by detectives to hospitals for treatment.

A handful of police officers are currently assigned to the new policy, which began a few weeks ago. The program is a variation of an older policy. The New York Post explains:

In the past, the city Department of Health would ask cops for help finding mentally ill people who aren’t taking their court-mandated meds so they could be taken to clinics. But that only applied to those who had known addresses — and patients who went off the grid were rarely pursued, the sources said.

The city is now concerned it could be liable if one of those people goes off the rails and hurts someone — or themselves, the sources said.

Mentally ill roundup plan after train pushes

The city is making a major push to sweep the streets of dangerous, mentally ill New Yorkers — and has even compiled a most-wanted list, The Post has learned.

The measure follows a pair of high-profile subway-shove fatalities from December allegedly involving mentally ill individuals.

The city has already drawn up a list of 25 targets, sources said.

“After the Queens subway attack [of immigrant Sunando Sen], the [city] decided to take a proactive approach to track down the most dangerous mental-health patients that currently have mental-hygiene warrants” out for them, a law-enforcement source said.

TRACKING ’EM: The city, fearing liability following splashy front-page subway-shove tragedies — like those involving suspects Erika Menendez (above) and Naeem Davis — is looking to get the mentally ill off the streets.

Those warrants mean that the patients are not wanted for a crime but instead are being sought because they are not getting their court-ordered treatment.

There are a handful of cops assigned to the detail, which began working in the past few weeks, the source said.

Cops in the NYPD’s Real Time Crime Center are using high-tech methods to first track down the individuals, and detectives on the street have been assigned to then go after them and take them to hospitals, law-enforcement sources said.

Prosecutors want jurors at the upcoming “cannibal cop” trial to learn about defendant Gilberto Valle’s computer chats with an online pal who told him that the taste of human flesh “isn’t quite like pork, but very meaty anyway.”

Court papers say Valle’s would-be dining partner — who used the screen name “Moody Blues” — boasted that he’d feasted previously on “a black woman and a white child.”

“I’ve not had a young white woman. Looking forward to it,” Moody Blues added.

Valle — who said he hadn’t eaten anyone before — replied, “Excellent,” according to the Manhattan federal court filing.

Prosecutors also cited the following exchange:

Moody Blues: “If we get someone…and we finish the meat early, would you go for another?”

Valle: “Yeah. I think we would have to give it time though.”

Moody Blues: “Why? Go for a completely different type. I’d love to eat another child.”

In addition, court papers say Moody Blues noted: “I also love roasting whole pelvises, mind you only did with the little one so far.”
