New Rochelle Cop Pulls Gun on Teens Having Snowball Fight, Officials Deny Story

Officials give their side of the story below:

“There was no snowball fight,” he said.

A high-ranking source agreed with Murphy.

“The video looks terrible, but it’s completely out of context,” the source said. “It’s a completely different incident than it appears from that snippet. There’s clearly a lot of misunderstanding. The record of the 911 call will by itself illustrate what was going on.”

Officials said they will not release a recording of the 911 call, but may release a transcript of the call.

“I’m sure that if I release it (the recording), there are people in the neighborhood who will identify the (caller),” Murphy said. “We depend on the public to give us information. If you violate that (trust), then what do you tell people? We know what happened, I know what happened and that’s it.”

New Rochelle Councilman Jared Rice, who in the past has raised questions about police training, took to Twitter Sunday to address the incident.

“Just heard from NRPD re the gun video. They say that there was a call of someone w/a gun and that person ran. That’s where the video begins,” Rice tweeted.

“Although there appears to not have been a snowball fight and instead reports of a gun, there are many questions that still need answers,” he continued.

The story has gone viral and generated so much traffic that the “host company thought (the) site was under attack,” according to the outlet’s Twitter account.

  1. Tea party bullshit. This is what republicans want. Divide and conquer by race and color. Cops are non skilled high school or GED qualified applicants that worked minimum wage jobs in the rural white suburbs. They get hired and dumped in minority communities where the damage is done not white Jewish, Irish or Italian neighborhoods! This is what happens when you hire non skill Walmart’s Home Depot McDonalds Berger King Dunkin Donuts former employee’s and give them a badge and gun! The biggest problem is the rank and file veteran cops that are worst examples than the new recruits! They pass their racism on to the new bunch. No oversight no consequences no morality or ethics! Bad fruit don’t fall to far rom a rotten tree!.
