Former Assemblyman Dov Hikind says a man has reported an NYPD officer cursing at Jews.
The man, a Chassidic father, told Hikind he was walking with his 17-year-old son Friday night after attending a tisch, and as they were at the intersection of 15th Avenue and 50th Street, a police car passed by and the officer who was driving rolled down his window and yelled a curse at them. The officer laughed and drove off.
The main reported the incident Dov Hikind, founder of Americans Against Antisemitism.
“I have so much respect for NYC’s Finest, but sometimes things like this happen,” said Hikind. “This incident must be thoroughly investigated by senior officials in the NYPD. With anti-Semitism reaching unprecedented levels, we can’t allow any form of hate to be tolerated.”
Hikind tweeted a video of a phone conversation he had with the man who reported the incident. Hikind later told Hamodia that the man was meeting with the NYPD to report the incident. Hikind also relayed Hamodia’s interview request, but the man declined.
