At least one cop has been disciplined for ordering the NYPD’s highest-ranking uniformed black officer out of his auto while the three-star chief was off-duty and parked in Queens, the Daily News has learned.
"How you can not know or recognize a chief in a department SUV with ID around his neck, I don’t know,” a police source said.
Chief Douglas Zeigler, 60, head of the Community Affairs Bureau, was in his NYPD-issued vehicle near a fire hydrant when two plainclothes cops approached on May 2, sources said.
One officer walked up on each side of the SUV at 57th Ave. and Xenia St. in Corona about 7 p.m. and told the driver to roll down the heavily tinted windows, sources said.
This just shows that no matter how you dress, how much you achieve in life, how educated you are, how much money you have, what your status is, some people will see you as just another black person that’s up to no good.
To those who think we live a post-racial society…
I had to double check that this wasn’t from The Onion, The Daily Currant, The Freewood Post or other such satire site out there. Ugh.
still a nigga.
I guess he wasn’t new black enough for the cops
Just remember, there is nothing wrong with “Stop and Frisk.” It works to make white people feel safer.

The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force.
If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America.
Yaaaasssss this has been on repeat on the news and I can’t stop laughing at it.
