When an unmarked police car drove very close to mailman Glenn Grays in Brooklyn, Grays shouted at the car. Four plainclothes officers got out of the car and started to handcuff him. Grays initially tried to resist, and one of the officers said “Stop resisting! You’re going to get hurt if you don’t give me your fucking hands.”
They arrested him and left the mail truck completely unattended, which is a violation of federal law. Most of the action was recorded on a cell-phone camera, and [Brooklyn Borough President Eric L.] Adams — who is a former officer — reviewed the video during the press conference. He calls this a “questionable arrest” for these reasons: “It is not a crime for someone to voice outrage after almost being struck by a vehicle … It is not a crime to state that you’re angry at someone who almost hit you. That is not a crime … If they would do that to him in his postal uniform, they would do it to any person of color in that community.”
NYPD will not offer an explanation why they arrested Grays, who does not have a criminal record. He was released with a ticket for resisting arrest.
Above: Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams urged the New York City Police Department (NYPD) to take swift disciplinary action against the police officers responsible for a questionable arrest of an on-duty postal worker that occurred last week in Crown Heights, which was captured on a newly uncovered cell phone video that will be shared with the media.
Borough President Adams was joined by that postal worker's family as well as members of his union, National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 41.
