From The New York Daily News
A black off-duty NYPD sergeant carrying takeout food to his girlfriend’s apartment claims he was racially profiled and roughed up by aggressive cops in the Bronx.
Sgt. Reginald McReynolds says he was handcuffed for 20 minutes while threatened by a rookie cop with arrest and the loss of his pension.
“I was minding my business,” McReynolds told the Daily News. “I can think of no other reason for being stopped but my skin color.”
“This incident has opened my eyes,” added McReynolds, who’s assigned to the Quality Assurance Division, which audits crime statistics.
