NYPD Arrest Mailman For Making Deliveries

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams wants the NYPD to investigate the arrest of a postal worker caught on video in Crown Heights last week, an incident he said “could have been another Eric Garner situation.”

Adams, himself a former NYPD captain, stood with the 27-year-old worker, Glenn Grays, and his mother at borough hall on Tuesday to release a video of the March 17 arrest.

In it, Adams said Grays is seen in his United States Postal Service uniform, with a package in hand, being cuffed and lead away by at least four plainclothes officers from the 71st Precinct.

Adams said the officers made the arrest shortly after Grays told them off for nearly hitting him with their unmarked police car, which passed him as he was trying to cross President Street near Franklin Avenue on his mail route last Thursday.

“It is not a crime for someone to voice outrage after almost being struck by a vehicle,” Adams said, adding that “members of the New York City Police Department” should be aware that their actions are likely to end up on video nowadays.

“There is someone … called Steve Jobs. He invented this thing called iPhone. Millions of people purchased them. And they take pictures of cops that do things that are wrong,” he said.

Grays was issued a summons for disorderly conduct after the incident, Adams said, and declined to speak about the incident because of the pending case. But Grays mother, Sonya Sapp, a Fort Greene resident and mother of six, spoke for him.

“As soon as I saw the video, I immediately started crying because I worry about all my boys, every day, every minute, every second of every day,” she said.

“I raised him to be humble,” she said of Grays, holding back tears. “And if the cop could have just humbled himself and just let it go, it would have been a lot easier.”

“I’m just so sorry it happened,” she added.

What do you think of the video of Glenn Grays' arrest?

Adams is calling on the police department to relieve the four officers in the video of plainclothes duty immediately and for the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau to investigate the incident. The police department did not answer questions about the status of the officers involved, saying only in a written statement that “the matter is under internal review.”

On Tuesday, Adams praised Grays, who he said has never been arrested before, for keeping his cool during the “traumatizing” incident.

“This could have been another Eric Garner situation if Glenn would not have responded as calmly as he did," he said. "Haven’t we learned from Staten Island?”

He stressed that the video does not reflect the “thousands” of officers who do their job correctly, nor the mayor or police commissioner, who he praised for making “great strides” in police training. But, still, he described the actions in the video as “a relic of the past.”

“When you see the video that shows nothing went wrong, it’s hard to not believe that the only reason Glenn was handcuffed was because of the color of his skin,” he said

    It's a big deal for the media now because this guy is a postal worker and because it's on camera, but this type of 🤬 happens in NY (and probably other hoods too) every 🤬 ' day.

    Of course he deserves to be compensated, and hell no those MFs don't deserve to be cops and should be locked the 🤬 up.

    And then you got people talking 🤬 when the people they harass are glad (or give zero 🤬 ) when they get killed.

    @The Lonious Monk, let's talk about those "good cops".

    This is obvious, but this doesn't prove that there are no good cops. How could it?

    Man, shut the 🤬 up.

    Who said it did ? This is to show that if there are so few bad cops in relation to good cops, how come out of all the cops on the scene arresting this guy for something that is so "obviously" 🤬 , that none of them happened to be "good" enough to stop the 🤬 .

    What about them? There are tens of thousands of cops in the country. It's illogical to act like all of them are the same as the few that we hear pulling this 🤬 . It's also illogical to celebrate the deaths of some cops because of what some other unrelated cops have done. Both of those things are just silly.

    That said, I'm not one of the people in the "some cops are good camp." I believe some cops do their jobs better than others as with any other job, but the fact that even the ones that do that will cover up for the bad ones means they can't really be considered good either.

    This 🤬 is wild foul, they couldn't just talk to the mailman about the incident? They had to arrest him as he's making deliveries?

    🤬 . All those cops need to get fired and charged with some felonies. But watch a punk ass prosecutor give these idiots a pass somehow.

    @Janklow. But remember we thought college students and potentially professors would never be able to carry either. It's not even an argument anymore and just accepted as " the way it is or a sign of the times." We're reverting back to a Cowboy justice country.

    well, college students and professors can't carry around here. we've made the former DOUBLE prohibited.

    but the difference is, they're carrying as personal citizens. postal carriers are not going to be sanctioned to carry on duty.
