Surveillance Video Proves NYPD Cops Lied About Dirt Bike Wreck That Killed Driver and Left Passenger Brain Dead
How much of a lie does it take to put a cop in jail?
Newly released surveillance footage showing a New York City police car mowing down a dirt bike, leaving a 20-year-old man dead and his 17-year-old male passenger paralyzed with brain damage, proved witnesses were correct when they accused the NYPD of lying.
Now the family of the teen is suing the New York City Police Department.
The incident took place in October 2012 but the video is just now surfacing, disproving the NYPD tale that police were not pursuing the occupants on the dirt bike, but that it tried to “overtake” the police vehicle before it lost control, swerving in front of the patrol car, which was when the cops struck the bike, killing Ronald Herrera and leaving Leonel Cuevas paralyzed.
But even back then, witnesses contradicted the official police report, according to a New York Daily News article published December 10, 2012.
