Case # 15CV06815, U.S. District Court - Eastern District NY
Plaintiff 1 heard her sister scream in their apartment building and saw her being shoved by three men who ended up police officers that did not identify themselves. When Plaintiff 1 asked what was happening, officers screamed racist comments and ordered her arrest. More residents objected at the scene and were arrested. Officers then warrantlessly entered Plaintiff's apartment, ransacked it finding nothing, and ordered everyone to be arrested. The officers questioned the Plaintiffs about guns in the neighborhood at the precinct and then released 3 of them. Another Plaintiff was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon and 3 other Plaintiffs were charged with OGA. All charges against all Plaintiffs were dismissed.
