NYPD Officer Brutally Assaults Man In Synagogue



Published on Oct 14, 2012 by CHInfoVideo

NYPD officers from the 71st Precinct in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY entered the private premises after receiving a call that an individual was sleeping there.

Police woke the sleeping person and attempted to place him under arrest. When he resisted one officer assumed a boxing stance and proceeded to pummel him non-stop.

CrownHeights.info was told that the person had permission to be in the premises. For more information and the full story please visit http://www.crownheights.info


- Well, I knew that DUIAA/H/B (Driving-Under-The-Influence-Of-African-Americanism/Hispanicism/Brown) was a longtime PBDO (Porkie Beat-Down Offense) in the NPSWO (New Police State World Order), I hadn't been informed that SWAHJIAS (Sleeping-While-A-Homeless-Jew-In-A-Synagogue) has also now apparently been added to the list of Capitalism offenses. The MSM has failed to inform us of these changes. Once again......

6. I was thinking exactly the same thing! Where the F did they all come from?

I'll bet there were three banks robberies going on in that neighborhood at the time.

Ridiculous!

10. The guy hit the cop first -- big mistake

Whatever the situation -- if you put your hands on a cop like that you are risking serious injury. There may be a misunderstanding, he may have permission to sleep there, etc but you have to speak to the cops in a non-confrontational way and do not start a sentence with "You can't..." when speaking to cops.

If you talk to them the right way they won't want to cuff you but if they do want to cuff you the only sane thing to do is put your hands behind your back and get cuffed.

14. He absolutely did not!

The cop attempted to grab him and he pulled his arms out of the cop's grasp. That's a whole helluva lot different than hitting the cop first! As far as I could see he never struck the cop - all of his actions were defensive.

This is just blaming the victim and suggesting if we all cower before the authority of those thugs ever more meekly, we can (maybe) avoid a beating. Fuck that shit.

20. So 'fuck' avoiding a beating? Personally, I try to avoid getting beaten up by 10 cops

or even 2 cops. Anyone above the age of 4 should know that you will not win a fight with cops. They aren't there to wrestle you or wrap you in bubble wrap -- they have handcuffs, pepper spray, a club, a tazer, a gun and 8 more cops who come pouring in within one minute.

Almost every beat down you see on YouTube starts with the person fighting being cuffed. It is a bad move. Cops are trained to escalate their use of force at that point. This guy could have been very seriously injured. For those of us who do NOT wish to risk brain damage or broken bones I recommend 1) talk to the cops in a non-threatening way, do not wave your arms around, do not get in their faces, do not ball your hand into a fist and raise it, do not tell cops what they can't do and do not start a physical altercation, and 2) if you can't talk your way out of being cuffed then stand there and get cuffed.

Not trying to blame anyone or excuse the 20 punches. Just saying from a self-preservation and pragmatic viewpoint that it is a bad idea to start any type of physical altercation with police officers. I have talked my way out of parking tickets and speeding tickets but I didn't do it by arguing, fighting or telling cops what they can't do.

15. Oh please! It is this attitude that they are some kind of gods that must be handled with care

that has allowed them to actually believe it. What utter nonsense.

They get respect when they give respect.

How is that people in other civilized countries don't have to handle their police with kid gloves?

Unless your advice is based on the premise that they are threat to society and therefore need to be approached with extreme caution, and I somehow misunderstood!

There is NO excuse for any police officer to beat the crap out of another human being. When they get THAT message then maybe fewer citizens will die or end up hospitalized after a brief encounter with them.

8. If I'd been caught

beating someone like that, even in self-defense, I'd be in jail right now and some DA would be looking to put me away for awhile. The only reason the victim remained conscious or wasn't killed is because the fat cop hasn't got a punch.

9. Recent events have shown that there is a very clear need for additional oversight of the NYPD.......

he man, Ehud H. Halevi, had permission to sleep at ALIIYA, which is a synagogue and outreach center for troubled youth serving the local Jewish community, when two officers from the 71st Precinct confronted him last Monday night. After Mr. Halevi told the officers he had permission to stay at the center, the two officers attempted to arrest him. When Mr. Halevi turned away from the officers, one of the officers immediately assumed a boxing stance before punching the defendant numerous times and continuing to attack the defenseless man. Both officers then proceeded to repeatedly beat Mr. Halevi with their fists and batons dozens of times. After several minutes, the officers placed him into custody with the help of ten additional police officers.

The entire episode was captured on surveillance cameras inside the center. Ironically, the victim was charged with felony assaulting a police officer and four misdemeanor charges before being released on bail.

“These appear to be two of the worst members of the NYPD. It is an embarrassment to the entire outstanding police department that two trained and armed police officers were unable to arrest this individual without resorting to the disturbing violence clearly shown on the video. By my count, one officer punched the victim over 20 times after he was already subdued. That's insane,“ said Greenfield. ”I am calling on the NYPD to do the right thing and fire these two officers. I have also asked the District Attorney's office to investigate these officers for possible criminal behavior in their assault on this defenselessness man. We must send a message that this type of violence against New York City citizens by anyone, much less police officers, will not be tolerated,” said Councilman David G. Greenfield.

Greenfield also noted that this was why he is supporting new legislation to establish an Inspector General of the NYPD. “Recent events have shown that there is a very clear need for additional oversight of the NYPD. That is why I am co-sponsoring legislation that would appoint an Inspector General to oversee the daily operations of the NYPD to prevent incidents like these from happening again.”

11. What the fuck has happened to NY?

Or, bad cops, who used to just be assholes at best. It looks like they just couldn't get enough of this guy. By the way, that looked like two shifts of cops. Must have been report time.

16. Nothing has happened, the NYPD has always, at least in my memory, been like this. Especially

when it comes to the homeless and minorities. They have a sad record of wrongful shootings, (Amadou Diallo eg) of abuse, of corruption that goes way back. The reason nothing has changed is because they are rarely held accountable for their crimes.

Giuliani's NYPD are a perfect example. I am always suprised that people think it was ever different with them.

Al Sharpton gained fame fighting the brutality of the NYPC against minorities. Until he stood up to them publicly, there really was no accountability for the crimes they committed against the poor and minorities.

17. I think I was using that as a baseline, sabrina...

I knew they weren't kind to the homeless and minorities, but THIS.... sets the baseline far worse!
I think they started really getting bad after Gouliani "cleaned up" NYC , but I don't really know anything other than where I live. (famous last words... "they would never do that here..." cannot be considered anymore)

19. I know, I was just pointing out that they have been shooting and killing minorities

for decades and without any accountability. I think 9/11 gave a lot of bad guys, like Giuliani, some new life when they made the national scene and many Americans knew little about their history. That's probably why people are shocked now when they see what most NYers, especially minorities, are not shocked by at all. 9/11 has given them even more lee-way as they have used it to become even more abusive.

They definitely need to be reigned in as they are completely out of control imho and there's so much we don't see. This incident was caught on tape, but so much happens that they cover up.

Giuliani totally defended every brutal act committed by them, in fact he encouraged it. I remember being in shock when the media turned that bully into a hero. He was no hero. He was the opposite of a hero.

Lol, don't get me started on Giuliani! All I can say is, some of my Right Wing adversaries online were thrilled when he ran for the WH. And they knew how much I despised him so they were 'rubbing it in'. My response was: 'good, NOW the rest of the country will find out what a creep he is along with his Chief of Police'.

They didn't believe me but since then his best friend who he appointed to a position he had not experience for, went to jail after he too was turned into a hero.

That whole Department needs to thoroughly cleaned out and some outside entity needs to take it over.

Lol, as you can see, I am not very fond of the NYPD! Didn't mean to seem argumentative, so my apologies about that ...

21. I totally get this...

It just hurts to admit it, since my family came over from Italy, my mother worked in the 40'd where the twin towers would be, and my whole world is changing one pocket at a time, to a police state.

I agree... sweep!

12. At the 4:45 to 5 minute mark it looks like they're cooking up their alibis?

Getting their stories straight? No sound so it makes you wonder.

18. ****UPDATE****

Jewish Officials Demand Cops Be Fired

By Oren Yaniv AND Simone Weichselbaum / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Monday, October 15, 2012, 10:32 PM



Stills shots taken from video of Ehud Halevy beating on
Oct. 8 at Aliya Institute in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.


JEWISH ELECTED officials on Monday called for the heads of two city cops caught on tape pummeling a young man who was sleeping inside a Brooklyn synagogue.

An NYPD spokesman said Internal Affairs is investigating the officers’ conduct regarding Ehud Halevy, 21. He was subjected to a barrage of blows after police roused him at the Aliya Institute in Crown Heights Oct. 8, according to a disturbing video that went viral Monday.

“By my count, one officer punched the victim over 20 times after he was already subdued,” said Council member David Greenfield (D-Brooklyn). “That’s insane.” He called for the NYPD to fire the officers, identified in court papers as Luis Vega and Yelena Bruzzese.

Internal Affairs has referred the matter to the Civilian Complaint Review Board, said a police spokesman. Vega has been placed on desk duty.
