Commanding Officer: Who commits the crimes in the city?

Birch: Who commits the crimes? Well, it’s mostly teenagers, anywhere between the ages of 15 and 19, mostly male blacks and Hispanics.

OK. Who are you stopping?

Everybody. I stop everybody.

Fifty-four TABs up to 8/20. Twenty-five of those are female. Half.

Like I said, I stop everybody. I’m not targeting anybody.

You just told me who the bad guys are.

Yeah, I know that. But there’s also other people who are committing violations as well. I’m not saying that there’s not violations being made.

The male blacks, that you told me commit the crimes—

Plenty of people that I write summonses to are male blacks and male Hispanics.

You stopped two male blacks.

Not for the whole year. You’re telling me for the whole year I only stopped two male blacks on summonses?

8/20. From January 1st to August 20th. Fifty-four TABs: two male blacks, seven Hispanics, seven other, ten white, three Asian. So where are you targeting the perps that you just told me?

Like I said, if I don’t see a perp jumping over the turnstile, what am I supposed to do to him?

These people are not going to pop.

How do I know that? A female Hispanic that I stopped in Sheepshead Bay did pop, actually, for a warrant, and I arrested her. Female Hispanic. The Hispanics that we’re supposed to be going after. That are committing the crimes. The people that I—

Did you think that she was going to pop?

Did I think she was going to pop? I didn’t put no thought into it. If you come up for a collar, I’m taking you in.

Here’s what I see. You just described to me who’s committing the crimes. You’re fully aware of it. But you’re not targeting those people.

I am. I’m targeting everybody.

Two male blacks.

Whoever is out there. If I—

So you only saw two male blacks jump the turnstile?

If you’re saying that’s what’s in front of you, then yes, that’s all I saw, is two male blacks for the whole year jumping the turnstile. If you’re saying that’s what’s in front of you, I’m not disputing that. If that’s what I got there.

That is what you have. That is not disputed here.

I’m saying, we’re also talking Hispanics as well. I stopped a lot of Hispanics, too.

Seven male Hispanics. But more than half are female.

And like I said, everybody’s committing violations in front of me.

    The dude just signed his own death warrant. Bad things happen to people who snitch.

    • EmoCity

      snitch? just showing you how it goes at his job on a daily basis

    • B!

      MF’s & this snitching rule kill me. This cat brought awareness, not snitched. Whether he brought awareness that we already knew of or confirmed it, that’s what he did. He didn’t snitch; not by street code, mob code, work code, bro code…..

    • mew

      fuck you abcxyz…

  • Real!sm

    Since the popo is basically a “gang”, I will say this is a form of sn!tching …

    • duane774

      And I’ll call you a dumbazz. FIRST of all, a snitch is SOMEONE WHO COMMITS A CRIME WITH ANOTHER PERSON, GETS CAUGHT, AND THEN, tells (snitches) on the other person. THIS what this cop just did IS NOT SNITCHING you blithering coward. He’s telling the public (us) what these racist cowards are doing to us. HE’S HELPING BLACK AMERICANS you freak. Boy, know what you’re talking about or STFU!

  • hag3

    we gotta STOP the street rules bullshit. we born into this world to live not survive. problem is no one from uptop is investigating this corrupt supremist $$$-pipeline. Drugs….Guns….Prostitution. Cats need the Untouchables; a private gang of legal vigilantes bustin up this corrupt cop national gang…

  • Destiny Polite

    He’s not snitching he is a servant of the people and as a servant of the ppl he has a duty to protect and serve and he’s serving the community by exposing racial profiling. Stop the madness I’d rather him “snitch” then to unlawfully lock up more black men taking them from their families Ijs

  • Yolanda Hinton

    Wow

  • Susan Murphy

    Wow, I guess there are some good honest cops. Thank you officer for doing you job honestly.

  • MICHAEL

    That really sucks that the system that preaches the most about democracy is the most racist…

  • FulaniyiraSpeaks!

    Is it me or is dude fine, lol.

  • FulaniyiraSpeaks!

    For the record I would have done the same thing. Thanks Apple. I can record anything anywhere at any time with the app, lol.

  • Born True

    Most people don’t know what a snitch is. If a person commits a crime with another person knowing very well of the consequences then gets caught alone. Then informs on the other person involved. That is a SNITCH. This is no way snitching. AT ALL. He did his JOB. To protect the innocent from a criminal.

  • REY

    When it come to telling on cops ain’t no such thing as snitching they snitch everyday

  • Keniel Winston Osbourne Huntle

    A police officer’s duty, is to protect the rights (life, liberty, and property) of people. Racial profiling, which is injustice against a particular race, is a form of crime. It threatens the liberty as well as the lives of individuals who are a part of the the race which is being targeted. The Police Officer, unlike0 most of his colleagues, is true to his duty. He did his job well. And as a black man, I appreciate it service.

  • djcisco

    WHY ARE YOU STUPID BASTARDS SHOCKED ITS BEEN LIKE THIS FOR EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • djcisco

    THATS WHY THEY DROPPING LIKE FLIES NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Black Lives Matter Too

    And you wonder why Blacks don’t trust the police! I’m not saying that blacks shouldn’t be arrested BUT they shouldn’t be targeted either. ANYONE can commit a crime…

  • Tanya

    I want to know what’s going to happen to the cop for being a dirty pos?

  • ‎Zoë

    this supervisor seems more obsessed with arresting black men than he is of how many people actually jumped the turnstile. apparently he doesn’t care about the law himself.

  • Spanishbradpitt

    Lol… What a fake story!!!! Lol… Bums!!!

  • True Grit

    The truth is most violators were White, and the department wants them to be ignored.

  • GuitarJam

    I keep saying over and over. white people are the devil

  • Edward

    Nothing new to most blacks. Most blacks already know the deal! What is bad about this is it will be the cop who is doing the right thing that will suffer the biggest consequences, while the no good racist supervisor will get a slap on the wrist if that much!

  • Eddy

    Semper FI Officer Pimental-Loyalty and integrity both in uniform and out of the Camo. Do the right thing all the time even if it requires exposing your chain of command for not upholding the standards across equally. You go Devil Dog—–Semper FI…..Always a marine…Hoorahhh!!

  • Jeannette Testamark

    We wondered where the good cops where and we found one…..he’s not saying anything we did not know all along…….. thank you for being an honest cop. Nice to know a good cop really exist!

  • Stephanie Werner

    That isn’t the real guy’s picture…this is. But good job getting people to read the story lol

  • LoveCreem SkateWax

    THESE COPS SHOULD GET FEDERAL WHISTLE BLOWER DEALS TO AMKE SURE NO TYPES OF PAYBACK ARE COMING AND THEN WHEN THEY PROVE WHAT THEY SAY THEY GET A CUT OF ALL THE ILLEGAL PROCEEDING OR LAWSUITS FOR BEING THE WHISLTEBLOWER AND A THANKS AS PER FLOYD FEDERAL WHISLTE BLOWER LAWS

  • Deserie Sanders

    Well good…gotta weed them (the racists ones) out from the inside -BEFORE- it spills onto the streets.

  • Discodee

    why ya’ll post a picture of another cop? wack site

  • limitedlogic

    Most of you don’t even understand what you are reading. When his supervisor talks about them “popping”, he’s referring to having another warrant for a separate crime. He’s saying that because most crimes there are committed by minorities, focus more on the minority turnstile jumpers. It’s called math and police work. No one innocent is going to jail.
