NEW YORK, NY - On September 24th in front of the GMC Brevoort Garage on E 12th Street near University Place, NYPD's deputy inspector of Patrol Borough Manhattan South Anthony Bologna shot pepper spray into the eyes of Chelsea Elliott as well as hitting 4 other female protesters (including 3 police officers) whilst they had nowhere to go. The same supervising officer was seen laughing after the arrests while looking at his text messages. 

We demand that Anthony Bologna be charged with assault for his actions and that he sees jail time.

We demand that Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly resigns. Not only can he not control his most senior officers, he is involved in actively sheltering them from receiving any punishment. Anthony Bologna is just one example in a long line of problems, not to mention the rape commited by Officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata or the handcuffing of a 7 year old earlier this year for decorating an easter egg, or Michael Mineo who was sodomized by NYPD officers in Brooklyn with a baton and later taunted about it by other NYPD officers, or Sean Bell who was unarmed and had a total of 50 shots rain into his vehicle on his wedding day in Queens, the list goes on and on.

We demand that Mayor Michael Bloomberg address the Occupy Wall Street & General Assembly and apologize for the police brutality and the weak attempt at a cover-up that has followed.

Please call:
Mayor Bloomberg: +1 (212) 639-9675 or +1 (212) 788-2958
Deputy Commissioner of Public Information: +1 (646) 610-6700
NYPD Switchboard: +1 (646) 610-5000
First precinct: +1 (212) 334-0611

Make our voice heard. Make sure that the world knows that everyone deserves equal protection, service, and punishment.

Remain true to our principles of non-violence.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: The unfortunate state of the NYPD..

----------------
Remove Raymond Kelly, jail Anthony Bologna, K. Moreno, F. Mata, et al.

The brutality shown by the NYPD to its people has gone on for too long and without enough internal oversight and discipline. We need a police for by the people, not against the people.

Sincerely,

      When the cops are the criminals the system has failed. The only way to fix it is to pull this filth out of our country.

      I'm disgusted by this police brutality. At a time when suppression of revolution in the Arab world is being condemned the authorities in the western world are doing exactly what their arab counterparts are doing.

      As a son of a former cop, I can say without a doubt this is police brutality, You wanna know a little story...My father fired a cop who unloaded a whole can of pepper spray into a holding cell at the local jail to quiet a drunk...The cop in question did not get any chance to explain his behavior...He was called into work by my father after he had gone home at 3 am...at 7am he recieved a phone call from my father to come into work with his badge and gun...he did...Was asked to place them on the desk then told to promptly "Get your ass out of my office you are fired" THIS is what should happen to the officer in question...When is the NYPD going to stop harboring domestic terrorist cops?
