In a weird twist of fate surrounding the already disturbing events of last week's savage attack on a New York motorist, it turns out an undercover New York detective was among the angry motorcycle mob which turned on the driver of the black Range Rover after he accidentally hit a biker.
Though he didn't report his presence at the September 29 melee for three days, undercover New York detective Wojciech Braszczok was not only there, he played an active role in terrorizing the family of three by punching in the rear window with his gloved fist. He initially told his superiors that he pulled up to the scene, but chose not to assist the family in peril because he "didn't want to blow his cover." Video evidence recently proved he was actually one of the aggressors.
The detective has been charged with rioting and criminal mischief, and can eventually be sentenced to up to seven years in prison thanks, in part, to the fact that a Range Rover's rear window costs $1,730, and causing more than $1,500 in damage qualifies as a D Felony. The New York Post portrays several fellow police officers as being disgusted by the actions of their wrongdoing peer and calling him an "embarrassment." But it's safe to say that those most disappointed are the citizens who hope to be protected, not assailed, by members of law enforcement.
