An NYPD Detective, minding his own business and taking notes while investigating a crime, was assaulted by a black man with two long plastic sticks. The man whipped the detective in the head with one of them, who immediately reacted to the intense pain.

A man struck an NYPD detective over the head with a plastic stick on Monday — in a broad-daylight attack that took place as the officer was investigating another crime, according to police.
The cop was processing the scene of a robbery in Queens around 11:50 a.m. when he was assaulted, the NYPD said.
Footage shared by the Detectives’ Endowment Association showed the cop standing outside the crime scene and taking notes near some broken glass — when a man holding two long white sticks creeps up behind him.
The perp then whacks the officer, who crouches down while holding his head in pain.
“What happened?” someone asks, as the attacker saunters away and crosses the street.
Another cop and a man who appears to be a bystander can then be seen taking off after him.
Akeele Morgan, 25, of the Bronx, was arrested not far from the scene on 39th Avenue, near Prince Street in Flushing, police said.
He was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The detective suffered a gash to his head and a whip mark, according to his union.
No motive was immediately provided for the attack.
“Once again, New Yorkers witness just how emboldened violent criminals are,” DEA president Paul DiGiacomo said in a statement. “If there’s anyone wondering why this happened, they can ask their elected officials who have created a city of no consequence for criminality.”
De Blasio has really allowed NYC to go to hell for their cops. This kind of action is despicable, but will city prosecutors really punish this perp like he deserves? My guess is he’ll probably just get probation or something and he’ll be back out on the street before you know it.
This is why there’s a mass exodus of officers in NYC, because of crap like this that thrives in a toxic, anti-cop, BLM climate. And I can’t blame them one bit. I’d get the heck out of there too.
Rudy Giuliani needs to run for mayor of NYC again to clean up the city again and remind people just what true leadership looks like. Because this De Blasio generation doesn’t have a damn clue.
