Pepper Spray Cop Outed

The NYPD “pepper spray” cop also “stands accused of false arrest and civil rights violations in a claim brought by a protester involved in the 2004 demonstrations at the Republican national convention,” the Guardian says. An injunction was filed against the cop, identified as deputy inspector Anthony Bologna, and is expected to be heard sometime next year, or whenever somebody gets around to it, apparently.

The Village Voice reports the hacker collective Anonymous helped identify the cop with a close up of his badge. However, Anonymous also released his possible phone number, address, and names of family members with the warning “Before you commit atrocities against innocent people, think twice. WE ARE WATCHING!!! Expect Us!” (Yes, but how will anyone know who you are?)

Patrick Bruner of Occupy Wall Street and pepper-spray victim Chelsea Elliott condemned the release of Bologna’s personal information.

I agree with Mistermix.

  1. This guy sounds like a real prince.

    Releasing his name is one thing, the rest of the informtation, another. Not that is takes a rocket scientist to find that stuff out.

    I don’t want us on the left to be like the loon’s on the right. I don’t care whether this cop with a history of abuse has granite countertops, or sent his kids to Uncle Ronnie’s Conservative Camp.

  2. Yeah, the whole “Anonymous” thing smacks of cowardice, when Outing is their entire raison d’etre. Now folks have reason to sympathize with the cop, who was horribly wrong in the first place.

    Probably a good rule of thumb: Would Michelle Malkin do it? If so, then don’t.

  3. Well, Anonymous has all the credibility of an unnamed administration official, talking to the press. So there’s that.
