NYPD Twitter #myNYPD Campaign Goes Horribly Wrong

Ben Swann – by Samuel Eaton

New York City – The NYPD News tweeted earlier today that they wanted people to share their photos of themselves with NYPD. They asked people to use the hashtag #myNYPD. They hoped to have a lot of smiling faces showing the nice side of the NYPD. However, it did not take long before the feed filled up with images and videos of police brutality.  

One of Luke Rudkowsi’s tweets showed a NYPD officer beating him with a baton.

Others posted pictures of the elderly man who was beat for jaywalking and other recent police brutality images.


Copwatch reminded us of the innocent people shot outside the Empire State building.

Complex Magazine shows us how the NYPD handles someone being detained.

Aside from the complete failure of the marketing campaign, the most surprising thing may be the sheer number of images and videos of NYPD police brutality there are.

    What IDIOTS!!!

    Like I told admin, be careful what you ask for.

          1. Outstanding! Good find, Angel. 🙂 You should send that second link to Henry/admin. That would put some smiles on us West coasters faces. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. It is to be expected, anyone with average intelligence would anticipate what the result of such a request would be.
    The Police only hire sub-average persons. (commonly known as Morons.)
    Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
