WATCH: NYPD Cops Point Guns at Subway Commuters to Arrest Fare Evader

A video that has gone viral shows subway commuters running for cover as New York City police officers point their guns into the car from outside.

The video then shows a young black man sitting on the subway with his hands in the air as a horde of NYPD cops enter the train and drag him to the ground, piling on top of him as other cops try to keep witnesses with cameras away.

The man, Adrian Napier, 19, was charged with fare evasion.

The incident took place Friday afternoon and police said they pulled their guns on the teen (and on everybody else on the train) because a witness reported him brandishing a gun. They also say he fled into a subway by hopping over a turnstyle when they tried to confront him.

The pursuing cops then “transmitted” his information to cops in the subway, according to NBC New York, who were able to pick the young black man out of a train filled with other black commuters.

But after tackling him on the train and searching him, they found no gun so he was only charged with theft of services in relation to hopping over the turnstyle. The cost to enter the subway is $2.75.

Earlier this year, the city added 500 uniformed cops to combat fare evasion, which is estimated to cost the city more than $240 million in revenue, according to the New York Times.

But statistics show almost 90 percent of all arrests for fare evasion were minorities, according to Gothamist.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
