Cuomo On NYPD RANT Forum: Most Disgusting, Discriminatory, Vile Blog You Can Find on the Internet

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo today had much to say about the online behavior of members of the New York Police Department. “This is one of the most disgusting, disturbing, discriminatory, vile blogs that you can find on the internet,” he said.

Transcript:

“There was a story in the Times today that was so disturbing on so many levels I can’t even begin to tell you. I want to applaud Councilman, soon-to-be-Congressman Ritchie Torres, who did an investigation that disclosed a well-known, long-term police blog that was in existence for about 20 years where police officers, NYPD police officers, would speak basically to each other on this blog. This is one of the most disgusting, disturbing, discriminatory, vile blogs that you can find on the internet.

This is a blog where they referred to Barack Obama as a “Muslim savage.” Darcel Clark, the District Attorney of the Bronx, Black a “gap-toothed wildebeest.” They called the Mayor’s son, Dante, “brillo-head.” They call Representative Omar, a federal Congressperson, a “filthy animal.” This, from NYPD. This from the NYPD and it’s gone on for years. Some estimate this blog is 20 years old. It was only called to light by Councilman Torres’ investigation. Now, all respect to Councilman Torres – and I’m a big fan of the Councilman. I’ve worked with him on NYCHA. I think he’s extraordinary and I think he’s a star for the future.

But the City Council is not the most sophisticated internet investigatory body. As Attorney General I did internet investigations. You indicate a subpoena, you give it to the internet company, you mirror a hard drive – that’s how you do these investigations. The City Council was just doing it by reading the blog and then piecing together who these geniuses were. It’s almost incredible that this went on for so long, was so widespread, so many police involved. How did nobody stop it? How did nobody blow the whistle? You’re in a time, George Floyd murder, Eric Garner in New York, demonstrations, are the police culturally sensitive and in touch with the needs of the people of the city, and you have this blog up which could not be a more damning representation of the NYPD? It is one of the most disturbing situations. George Floyd was disturbing to watch, to use a mild word.

This blog is just as disturbing to read because they both suggest discrimination and racism and abuse of power that has gone on for too long. This is not about one person. The New York Times writes a story; it’s one person, it’s one person. It’s not one person. It’s hundreds of people who are on the blog. How about everybody else? How about all the other police officers? One person? Come on.

The NYPD says they’re going to do a full investigation. It’s not about one person. This has to be fully disclosed. It went on for years. There are hundreds of contributors. The blog mysteriously came down. Any investigator worth their salt issues a subpoena today to the internet company, gets everything. Any investigator worth half their salt goes on the blog right now, copies it, starts reading it and tracks down the hundreds of submissions on the blog. NYPD says they’re going to do a full investigation. I think it should be expeditious, I think it should be full, I think this is misdirection to be pointing to one person, that’s not what it’s about, I would urge a real investigative journalist, go to this blog right now. You can put it together the way Councilman Torres put it together a good investigative journalist could put it together because they give you their information. I joined the NYPD in 1982, I’m in precinct this, I was on this case, you can figure out who they are. It’s not one person. NYPD, full investigation, quickly, expeditiously.

I think they should tell us what they have as soon as they have it because this is going to inflame the current tension between the NYPD and the community and frankly it’s uglier than I thought it was.”
