Oct 19 - NYPD cops refuse to wear masks, boot rider from NYC subway for raising issue
 

 

A pair of unmasked NYPD cops shoved a straphanger out of a Manhattan subway station on Tuesday after he says he repeatedly asked them why they werent following a state rule that requires people to cover their faces in mass transit facilities.

Andy Gilbert, 27, said he got off his downtown W train at 8th St. in the East Village around 8:40 a.m. when he saw the cops standing on the platform without masks.

Recently I started doing short videos whenever I see that and ask why the cops arent wearing masks, said Gilbert, who lives in Queens.

This morning I did the same thing. I asked both of them if they realize its illegal to not have a mask on in the subway. I asked, Why dont you just put on a mask?

A state rule that took effect in September 2020 requires everyone to cover their faces on the subway or face a $50 fine.

The male officer kept saying he couldnt hear me through my mask, said Gilbert. Eventually the back and forth went on for two or three minutes. The male officer declared that I was being disruptive.

At this point, the officers who Gilbert identified by their badge numbers as Joseph Vincent and Grace Rosero Tapia shoved the querying straphanger out the stations emergency gate.

Video posted on Twitter shows a male officer pushing Gilbert toward the gate. A female officer pushed the gate open as the male pushed Gilbert out of the platform area. The video doesnt show the confrontation that led up to that incident.

An NYPD spokesperson said the incident is under internal review.

Gilbert said he regularly sees cops flouting the states mask requirement in the subway and has never seen officers crack down on riders who fail to wear masks.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials have over the last 15 months pushed for mask usage so more New Yorkers feel comfortable riding the the subway. The MTA regularly holds mask force events in which volunteers and agency leaders hand out masks to riders in trains and stations, and asks those who are unmasked to cover their faces.

The MTA last month announced a crackdown on riders who decline to wear their masks in transit after the agencys internal police force issued just 41 summonses for the violation over the first year the policy was in effect.

Its unclear whether the NYPD has enforced the mask requirement at all. NYPD representatives said the department does not track data to that level of specificity.

Ive had police threaten me a few times for asking them why theyre parked in bike lanes, but Ive never had any cop physically a*sault me, Gilbert said.

Cops dont care about the law, said Gilbert. They just do whatever they want and theres no accountability.

Oh wow, they're fining people for not wearing a mask on the train!?! sh*t... I could only imagine the craziness that's taken place on the subway and buses these days.

I'm not an anti-masker but I'm just imagining how turned up this sh*t had everyone from the masks to the mandates. Probably more than I've realized.

I'm in the grey with this one. Yeah masked guy shouldn't be telling another grown dude what to do. Yeah jacob should've been wearing their masks. But iono man, it's kinda fu*ked up how a lot of them feel like they gotta be above the law instead of enforcing it. It's also fu*ked up too that they shoved him out through the gate like that and I'm sure he paid. Hopefully the person at the booth let 'em rock.

But he is BOLD for pressing them like that. Another user said that a black person wouldn't engage with them like that and I agree. They tend to do corny unnecessary sh*t when they're on the scene. Sometimes sh*t could end up fatal. Too risky.

They did that guy dirty but I'll digress and just end this post by saying that it's a good thing that that sh*t didn't escalate and also that the dude wasn't black because I am very certain some dumb crazy sh*t woulda happened if that was the case just off the strength of how the male officer was moving...

Any police officers in here? Is pushing him out of the station considered use of force?

Seems like that should have been documented in an incident report

no surprise, it's been known cops are filthy fu*ks

cops exist to get paid and get home, that's it

and if they can shoot an unarmed person in the back, all the better

but why would they stop?

ya'll keep rewarding their behavior with your support of the racist economy

are you really asking if a cop will admit to wrongdoing?
