Today’s anti-police atmosphere loves pointing blame at police officers for shooting perps who resist arrest and fight back, because it’s a lot easier to sit on the sidelines and place blame than to actually walk the streets and deal with people who would happily kill you every single day. But videos like this one show why cops have to be defensive — an NYPD officer was attacked by a thug as he tried to restrain the thug’s sister on a Manhattan street.
A cop trying to restrain a woman on an Upper Manhattan street was walloped in the head by an attacker, an online video shows.
The officers spotted Terrell Mitchell, 26, with an open bottle of Hennessy on W. 144th St. and Frederick Douglass Blvd. on Friday at 11:30 p.m. But his sister, Asia Banks, 38, intervened when the two cops approached, police said.
As the cops tried to apprehend Banks, who was punching and scratching, Mitchell repeatedly sucker punched the male officer in the head from behind.
He fled but was nabbed nearby. Both he and his sister were charged with assaulting a cop.
Police said Banks had reached for the female officer’s gun during the scuffle.
In the video, the officer is seen putting her hand on the holster as Banks grabs her wrist. Throughout the altercation, Mitchell is heard yelling “that‘s my sister.”
The punched officer, whose glasses were knocked off in the attack, was treated for swelling and a cut to his mouth, police said. His partner suffered scratches to her arms, police said.
Here’s a genius idea: don’t break the law, don’t resist arrest, and don’t attack a police officer. Maybe if more people would follow this groundbreaking advice, they wouldn’t have to worry as much about being shot by a cop.
