High-ranking NYPD inspector transferred to Staten Island command after 'Occupy Wall Street' pepper s
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The high-ranking NYPD cop caught on video blasting pepper spray at a group of fenced-in Occupy Wall Street protesters last month has been shuffled into a borough command post on Staten Island where he lives.
Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna who last week was docked 10 vacation days for violating NYPD guidelines following the Sept. 24 incident was transferred on Monday from Patrol Borough Manhattan South to a position as special projects coordinator here, an NYPD source told the Advance.

He now reports to the borough command headquarters in New Dorp, just a few miles away from his Westerleigh home.

The Sept. 24 incident took place during the starting days of the protests, and drew a national media spotlight to the movement.

Videos from multiple angles show a group of women, fenced in by orange netting, yelling, "Shame, shame!" as they watch police tackle a man with a camera during a tense moment at Fifth Avenue and 12th Street.

A few seconds later, Bologna, who is wearing a white shirt that indicates a command rank, takes out a canister, looses several bursts of the pepper spray into the corral, turns around, re-holsters the canister and strides off. Another video shows Bologna using pepper spray on a second group of protesters.

Two days after the incident members of the hacker collective "Anonymous" released a document containing personal information on Bologna a possible phone number, names of Bolognas family members, every address in public records the group could find, and the docket of a lawsuit where hes named as a defendant.

17. It's difficult to tell anything from phone numbers anymore.
When people call to inquire about my services I find that about a third with "local" numbers are actually living out of state and people with other area codes are living here locally. People are hanging on to their cell numbers after they move. And then again, who knows if Anonymous has the correct phone number. Likewise, who knows if the article is accurate.

6. Staten Island is a career killer
for a command level cop. He's pretty much been consigned to Siberia.

19. There is pretty much nothing that will ever
cause him to lose his pension or his job. The NYPD police association has a pretty good grip on that.

20. You're right
but it's pretty much as good as you'd ever expect to get with an NYPD cop especially one in the command structure.

15. That sounds like punishment to me.
SI and downtown Manhattan are very different places. I'd rather be downtown.
