Police officer hailed a hero for staying calm while suspect yells the N word at least 50 times

[link:https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/police-officer-hailed-hero-staying-calm-suspect-yells-n-word-least-50-times-175358537.html|


A black police officer who stayed impressively calm while an arrested suspect screamed the N word at her — more than 50 times in one minute — has been called a role model for law enforcement.

A cellphone video shot Wednesday shows the unnamed officer standing with suspect Ilya Freyman, 51, who is sitting in front of Ocean Auto Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., while he screams the slur. During the racist episode, the officer keeps her composure, avoiding eye contact with the man, even as he yells, “F*** you” to her colleague who tries to intervene. The video was originally posted to Facebook last week by user Swagnista Keda, who has reportedly deleted it.

A representative from the New York Police Department told Yahoo Lifestyle that officers responded to a call from a neighboring gas station on Ocean Avenue after Freyman punched and shattered a glass booth. He was arrested on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, and harassment.

1. Oh, please. Is it really so unusual for a police officer to do the job properly

that when one actually does so, we're supposed to call her a hero? All police officers should be able to find it within themselves to refrain from assaulting handcuffed suspects.

2. She didn't shoot him even though he ignored her repeated commands

Respect for life.

5. When police officers NOT doing there job are all over the news,

a police officer doing her job receiving accolades can do no harm. Showing people what "right" looks like is a good idea.
