What happens when an elected official is roughed up after leaving an event he hosted about community policing? Assemblyman Michael Blake talks to Roland Martin about his encounter with the encounter with the NYPD and the complaint filed against the department.

“I see a commotion happening so I go see I was bear hugged and thrown up against the gate. If I wasn’t recognizable that day, I don’t know if I would be recognizable today. It shouldn’t matter that I’m an elected official. The officer apologized but said he’d do it again,” Blake said.

    There were a lot of african americans who thought that they would not be subject to police brutality and racist hate. Now we all know that because of police unions nationwide the extremist police and law enforcement officers are above the law and will not be held accountable for criminal behavior against anyone that is african american or mentally ill. Welcome to reality!
