After determining no criminal action was necessary, the cops, who are neighborhood-coordination officers were leaving, only to be verbally accosted by at least two men as they walked out.
As the officers descended the stairs, a man holding a camera shouts at them 'You p****! You p****!' inside of the building on Westchester Avenue near East 158th Street.
'Suck my d***! Suck my d****!' the man adds.
And another man chimes in yelling at the cops: 'Get the f*** out my building!'
A police source told the New York Post that the cops could have arrested the people screaming at them as they left, or at the very least issued a summons for harassment or disorderly conduct, however because of how officers are trained right now, they are told to back down and just take it.
'Who wants to be talked to like that?' the source said. 'It's because the way they're teaching you now. You gotta hold hands with the perps.'
But 'sometimes you gotta put the neighborhood constable aside and be a police officer.'
'Sadly, this is the result of years of elected officials demonizing police officers and decriminalizing abhorrent behavior,' said Patrolmen's Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch.
'They have eroded respect for the uniform and the shield with their constant false narrative about police brutality and this is the result,' Lynch added to the Post.
