New York Police used Snapchat to mockingly wish Merry Christmas to handcuffed suspects in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. While conducting routine warrant sweeps the police took time to humiliate a low income family two days before Christmas. Turns out they had the wrong apartment anyways.
The neighborhood is home of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.
Kimberly Santiago, one of the victims of the raid, ended up calling 911 after the experience, and then filing a report with the police department.
“The worst part was the Snapchats. That’s what really got to me. The things that he wrote, it’s like, this what you all do? If he did that to, picture how many other families he’s done that to. And he was the only one standing there watching us.”
The incident is currently under internal investigation according to ABC 7 in New York.
