From former tennis stars to sidewalk grillers to NBA players to everyday Black folks walking down the street, the NYPD can do the absolute most when it comes to who they arrest, but this newest arrest takes the cake.

According to the New York Daily News, an on duty mailman Glenn Grays, 27, yelled at an unmarked car that almost slammed into his work truck. For whatever reason, police believed that being read for filth was so dangerous that the situation warranted four plainclothes police officers and a lieutenant  to approach Grays, who at the time was carrying a large brown box. 

Thankfully, the confrontation was recorded.

The video shows the cops asking him for ID, which quickly tells them is in his truck. Soon after, the cops pull Grays away from the door and cuff him, despite Grays never resisting. The cops put him in the car and drive off leaving the mail truck completely unattended, NY Daily News notes. 

Gray’s mother, Sonya Sapp, told reporters that when she saw her son get handcuffed on video, she started to cry. 

“I worry about all my boys, every day, every second of every day,” she said. “I’m just sorry that it happened and I don’t want it to happen to anyone else’s son.

This arrest and treatment of Grays isn’t sitting too well with Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams who is calling the police’s behavior a gross overreach in authority and hopes Internal Affairs starts an investigation.

“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,” Adams stressed. He added, “they issued him a summons in hopes of sweeping this under the rug.”

Adams also believes that this incident is part of a larger ongoing problem of overpolicing of Black and Latino areas.

“They place handcuffs on an on-duty postal employee delivering the U.S. mail. If they would do that to him in his postal uniform, they would do it to any person of color in that community,” Adams said Tuesday at a press conference.

Adams also noted that forcing Grays to leave his truck unattended may have violated some federal laws too.

“I believe there were federal violations. Number one, leaving that truck unsecured. Number, two, interrupting the delivery of mail. There are clear NYPD procedures when you are arresting a federal employee,” he said. “We don’t know if even those basic procedures were followed.”

Meanwhile, Adams says Grays is “traumatized” by what happened.

    Cave n!@@er statistics are a figmentation of a dysfunctional mind. These cave apes commit more crime in this country in proportionality and in totality, absolute reality. Cave n!@@ers wipe out their own families incessantly in this country. This is a prominent illustration of the depravity of these monsters, freaks and savages. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  2. We already know how violent and racist blacks are. 12 percent of the population yet over 60 percent of violent crimes. True statistic. The black racist mailman probably didnt like a “cracka” cop being in his neighborhood and threatened him. I am sure of this. Just like the three sheboons at the University of Albany that faked the entire story and were actually the instigators!

      PJ, your statistics are true and verifiable by anyone in search of truth, but in this case, the video appears to show the cops overstepped their bounds with probably the only black man on that street working a legit job.

      -Holla’

    F*ucking dumb racist cave n!@@ers with badges. This is why these neanderthal apes with a GOD complex are being liquidated. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  4. Come on!!!! This has just gotten out of control at this point. I don’t even believe there will be a way back. Walking while black, driving while black, now working while black….Sad

    Absolutely appalling! What’s the arrest for? Not one of these “cops” thought, just let him go, what’s the charge, yelling while black? Suspensions w/o pay, no less.

    I am Aghast at reading this. It seems when you think the cps cannot go any lower, they go even further into the depths of of racist ignorance. Unfortunately, we havent seen the worst though. The more they are exposed the more determined they appear ot be to justify horrible behaviour.

  7. Linda on said:

    Mr. Grays now needs to obtain an attorney and sue NYPD for being total assholes!!!!!

    While these POS PIGS were wasting time harassing this man–real crimes were occurring in the city!!!!!!

    • The Postal Union will handle this! For one the cops should have contacted the postal inspector immediately so the mail would be protected.
