WORKING WHILE BLACK: NYC POLICE ARREST MAILMAN

A POST OFFICE WORKER, GLENN GRAYS, IS NEARLY STRUCK BY A VEHICLE. He feels some kinda way about that. He expresses his outrage. It turns out the badly driven car is being driven by plain clothes policemen.

Apparently, the policemen get out of their car while Post Office Work Glenn Grays is delivering a package and generally go about abusing their authority, demanding identification as if they don't know who Grays is or what he's doing despite his
1) being in a postal uniform
2) getting out of a postal vehicle
3) delivering a postal package.

Grays appears to be perceived by the officers as a mouthy slave and then they proceed to treat him like one. They arrested him. But Grays didn't get upset and stayed very still-- which is probably why he's still alive, which is why the verbal threats of physical harm was as far as it went


“It is not against the law to voice outrage after almost being struck by a vehicle,” Borough President Adams told the media, “This could have been another Eric Garner situation if Glenn hadn’t responded as calmly as he did.

Adams has demanded a full review of this incident.

When the police officers reportedly left the mail unattended, this should have represented the police officers breaking federal law. I wonder when federal officers are going to pick them and put them in jail? Will they go to their homes and pull them out into the street and put them face down on the pavement in front their wives, children, and neighbors?

Somebody make sure to get video of that in the alternate universe, okay? 








Cell phone cameras. Gotta love em.
