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.

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.

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.

Laughing so hard that I couldn’t comment. 🙂

Still can’t fix stupid. 🙄
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.
This article is absolutely HILARIOUS! Haha!
Paybacks a bitch, ain’t it?
What goes around, comes around.
However, they didn’t “get it.”
