Reason First: Man Kicks NYPD Officer Off of Train Platform, Sends Wrong Message About NYC
New Yorkers represent more than the cowardly actions of one inhabitant.
In the big city that seems to have not caught a break in nearly two decades, New York Police Department officers must still deal with the savages in the streets. Like the goddess Soteria, who promoted safety and kept the good from harm, a lady cop in the greatest city in the world tried to wrangle a monster. In order to preserve the peace, her partner and she attempted to keep down a beast that ultimately kicked the female police officer into the path of trains. Fortunately, no engines ran on the subway track at the time of the kick.
The situation never escalated and the cop regained control over the idiot. In the incident, Officer Carolyn Anderson fractured her wrist but is expected to recover. As for the suspect, he is currently in police custody awaiting his fate.
But what should be made of this whole scene? The videographer Joaquin Santiago exclaimed, “This is New York,” into the camera as he held it steady. While this took place in Gotham, it is not representative of true New Yokers. The real inhabitants of this city busy themselves in making money the (legal) fast way.
As for Officer Anderson, her strength and resolve to be put in a precarious spot should embolden her to fight even more crime. The suspect should be put in the worst position possible. Cops remain the sentinels keeping the streets and neighborhoods clear of all hurt, harm and hazard. As hundreds of thousands of cops commit to holding onto the last vestiges of justice.
This case should be preserved in the annals of police procedural action. Law enforcement deserve the utmost respect and solemn appreciation for having to put up with miscreants like the suspect.
The status of the city has been hammered by COVID-19 cases and mounting deaths. New York is experiencing one of the most catastrophic time periods all over again. With cases finally decreasing in the number of coronavirus victims and the number of survivors increasing, some glimmers of hope should shine through this entire city. This horrific video should provide for anyone who wants to see justice in the world.
Right before Officer Anderson fell onto the tracks on the opposite side, a train barreled through. This would suggest that the charges against the suspect should be attempted manslaughter at least. His disregard for the law and the officer’s personal safety should go down as some of the worst instances of criminal justice in the city. NYPD has faced the seedy scene in the eighties and early nineties during the Crack Era. Before that, the heroin trade and even prior to that alcohol bootleggers amongst a whole host of other serious challenges.
Now, cops have to be aware of nasty people spitting in their faces. With glasses specifically designed to withstand such an attack and a mask to shield them as well, they at least have some protection from bastards like the male laying in the subway platform. For all of the ways that police officers display courtesy, professionalism, and respect, they should have a modicum of each reciprocated. By kicking an officer trying to arrest him, this miscreant made matters worse for himself and others. The focus should be placed on Officer Anderson who could have shot the man. But she possessed the presence of mind to know that she showed up on a camera screen. Why didn’t she just stun the man or let rookie cop Elijah Pardieu hog tie the perpetrators legs with zip ties? Whatever the case, in the largest city in the best country in the world, such vermin should be carted off to prison. For her role in apprehending the suspect through what could have been a deadly situation against her, Soteria would’ve been proud of Officer Carolyn Anderson.
