A Long Island woman said she was assaulted by police after a recent shooting – but on Friday, New York officials said the officers’ dash cams told a different story.
“The evidence gathered during this investigation shows that the allegation that officers assaulted this individual without cause is untrue,” Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone told reporters when speaking at the county government office in Hauppauge, New York, according to Newsday.
“In fact, the evidence shows that these officers acted in the best interest of this victim,” he added.
The development not only brought down the offensive claims of Cindy M. O’Pharrow but also the stereotype that it was targeted officers she is a black woman.
Based on Fox News, O’Pharrow “filed a notice of complaint against Suffolk County and its police department, alleging that officers injured her arm while forcibly amputating her [from] an ambulance after the June 27 shooting at the graduation party in Dix Hills. “
Her attorney, Frederick K. Brewington, announced the claim during a July 7 press conference in which he noted his client’s other allegations that employees abused her. , “refuses to give their names and shines a flashlight at her cell phone as she tries to take photos and videos of police at the scene”.
Bellone has her own thoughts to share about Brewington’s stage, apart from O’Pharrow’s.
“This attorney has been in front of multiple cameras and said that these officers used force against someone for no reason,” he said, according to Fox News.
“Then the lawyer actually held up photos of these officers and accused them of abusing their power… that they abused their authority, that they assaulted a woman without reason. what,” the county executive noted. “That’s what was said.”

“None of that is true.”
WSHU-FM reports of an incident that took place leading to O’Pharrow’s removal from the ambulance.
After a man was shot in the stomach at a graduation party in Dix Hills, O’Pharrow claims the victim’s family asked her to join him in an ambulance to take him to the hospital.
She argued that staff members then forced her out of the ambulance, injuring her arm when they cursed at her.
In a press conference with the media, Acting Police Commissioner Stuart Cameron confirmed that uninjured people were not allowed inside the ambulance.
Then he turned police dashcam footage for supporting evidence.
The less than two-minute video sheds light on O’Pharrow’s claims in front of reporters.
Dashcam footage recounts the moment shooting victim was put in an ambulance and O’Pharrow tried to join him inside.
Cameron said it showed O’Pharrow becoming increasingly “agitated” and “waving” at EMS personnel before climbing inside, Fox reported.
“She won’t get off the bus and the fire department won’t let her in,” he explained to the media.
The victim, later identified as O’Pharrow’s cousin, repeatedly told her to “just get out [the ambulance] can leave. “
Two staff members then removed O’Pharrow, using their hands to lift her out of the ambulance so authorities could transport the victim to the hospital.
“To me, it looks like they were very careful to put her on the ground carefully so she wouldn’t get hurt. So they’re basically facing an unresolvable stalemate,” Cameron said.
“She delayed the transportation of a seriously injured person, but I believe she was in good faith,” he later added.
Unfortunately, it seems that she only wants one end of the equation to be such “improved”.
The Long Island Press also considers the incident to be the latest of “white Suffolk police officers charged with mistreatment of minorities,” which not only misleads the opportunists, but reiterates the story. which police officers were trying to find. targeting the minority.
However, to the chagrin of the opportunists, dashcam footage exposed the case.
