Press Statement: Family beaten by NYPD on 4th of July, Rally and BBQ revisited

Dennis Flores | This 4th of July will be the one year anniversary of the attack on the Acosta Family by former 72nd precinct captain, Dominic Gentile, and scores of police officers whom rained punches, kicks, racist slurs and disgusting insults upon Margarita, Jose, Elena, Marisol, Darrell, Edgar, and others. What prompted last year’s vicious attack was Captain Gentile’s allegation that he was responding to a noise complaint (which to date has not been substantiated by the precinct, courts, or attorneys), resulting in the brutalization of the family, their friends, and neighbors, as well as felony assault charges and a list of misdemeanor charges against Margarita, Marisol, Jose, Elena, and Edgar. Pictures of the family’s injuries have been the source of major media attention in the past year, especially those that captured Margarita’s 62 year-old body covered in bruises, getting shoved into a police paddywagon, handcuffed, shirtless and shoeless, the very night of the attack. more...  0 Comments
