Political Activists Say the NYPD Still Silent After Its Undercover Cops Were Exposed

Harry Bubbins, Robert Jereski, and Matt Metzgar filed their complaint on Tuesday.
Tuesday was NYPD Inspector General Phillip Eure's first day on the job; it was also the first day that the job existed at all. The office was created (and vested with a $5 million budget) by the City Council over the veto of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg last year, and Eure, who previously headed up Washington D.C.'s office of police complaints, was appointed by the Department of Investigation on March 28.

In a statement shortly after the announcement, Mayor Bill de Blasio called independent police review "a critical component" for improving public safety and the NYPD's relationship with the community.

Communities United for Police Reform cheered Eure's appointment too. In a March statement, the group reiterated its hope that the new IG would not only work to ensure the end of stop-and-frisk abuses, but "review the disparate impact of the NYPD's enforcement of minor offenses on low-income communities of color; the disturbing patterns related to police brutality and killings of unarmed New Yorkers and those with psychiatric disabilities; the surveillance of Muslim communities and political group; and basic transparency by the department." That's a lot to do! So, how's Eure doing so far?

Well, on Tuesday afternoon, Robert Jereski of the activist group Friends of Brad Will filed the first complaint with the office. The group was created in 2006 after Will, a journalist, was murdered in Mexico. Their aim was to spread awareness about human rights abuses resulting from of the war on drugs. Members of the group long believed their organization had been infiltrated by members of the NYPD. They found proof to that effect in 2012 when the Associated Press revealed a memo proving the NYPD had dispatched an undercover officer to surveil the group at a 2008 conference.

The group had previously filed Freedom of Information Act requests for access to information in the NYPD's files on Friends of Brad Will, but their request was denied. On Tuesday, Matt Metzgar, an activist whose efforts to remove from his East Village home an undercover officer during a 1997 political benefit are documented in the complaint, told the Voice the AP leak was proof "I'm not paranoid."

Now Metzgar, Jereski and others are demanding further information on the NYPD's surveillance from Eure. Tuesday's complaint is wide-ranging. At least four groups -- Friends of Brad Will, Time's Up!, Reclaim the Streets, and so-called "Housing and Garden Activists" -- are mentioned as having been the targets of illegal NYPD monitoring as far as 1997. Among other things, the activists asked for a full audit of NYPD programs that have targeted political activists, and a full investigation of the department's Intelligence Division.

On Tuesday, when Jereski, Metzgar and Friends of Brad Will spokesman Harry Bubbins arrived at the Department of Investigation's Lower Manhattan office to hand deliver their complaint it felt... slightly anticlimactic. Eure did not come down from his new office, two floors above, to meet his first complainants face to face. Instead, their complaint was accepted by Pamela Woolbright, the Department of Investigation's director of complaints, who dutifully copied down Jereski's number and told him Eure would be in touch within two to three days.

Bubbins was mildly disappointed by his first interaction with the inspector general's office. "I would think that police misconduct is a little different than a broken swing in a city park," he said on Tuesday.

On Friday, Jereski had still not heard from anyone at the Inspector Generals' office.

There's been alot of press exposure regarding surveilance of the Muslim community but little if nothing regarding the infiltration and surveilance of the Chinese American community by the NYPD Intelligence Division/FBI and the continued decades long observation of the African American community. Only recently did it come out that Al Sharpton was a confidential informant for the FBI.

The guy's disappointed that a city employee did his/her job unceremoniously. 


Was he expecting a parade?  Fireworks?

I suffer from exhaustion from this traumatic event. Trying to write from iPhone and can't edit in 5 min.

I wrote Mr Eure care of Mr Bratton's office and lodged a complaint Det John Vergona coerced me a crime and Internal Affairs allowed him to retire. I have 2 audios - 1 at the first precinct with the NYPD refusing to allow me to report Delita Hooks false cross complaint because I am told I am not a detective or from the DA. 2nd audio IAB Sgt Mary O'Donnell stating case closed refusing to listen to what I have to say.

IAB Sgt Mary O'Donnell promised to mail back my notes I accidentally handed her. She never mailed them back. She had lead me to believe the detective's name she gave me Dwyer was spelled Drier. She saw that on my notes and never corrected me and did not return the notes. His name is Detective Andy Dwyer, Delita Hooks detective never even contacted me. The lies go on and on and I was told by the NYPD's lawyer the NYPD sealed my attacker false cross-complaint in under a year. I allege he did that to protect her and themselves since they committed the crime of coercion and fixing a crime.

Det Vergona refused to meet me repeatedly he's never met me but in his DD5 dates I didn't want to meet him which is not true.

I got three police reports and het false cross-complaint aka lies (in my opinion) and posted them up on scribd.com. The video posted below proves lies and the doctors office to the NYPD an internal affairs I was treated like a Jew in the early stages of Nazi Germany.

Delita Hooks violated my patient rights and my body and corrupt cops were like ha ha you got what u deserved like an extend hate crime from the MD's to One Police Plaza. Ray Kelly is on record defending Det Vergona who said I don't care if you have two black eyes. You are gong to drop the charges or I am going to arrest you!

He decided I had to wait until Saturday 4 o'clock to be false arrested. I asked arrested the Jew on the Sabbath are you anti-Semitic?

Why do I have to wait for days to be false arrested?

No answers and Ray Kelly and gang says serve Det Vergona at 1 Police Plaza after the judge instructed the city to help me to serve the retired detective since I couldn't locate him.

Below the attack which permanently damaged my left eye and created floaters in both eyes and damaged my cervical spine. I was a medical patient my arm numb from injections hold 2 bags one with an iPad and my phone as Delita Hooks came out from a long closed off reception desk to continue violating my patient rights she provoked me to get help when I couldn't get help she provoked me to video tape/ document her verbal assault and gestures and she repeatedly violated my body. The NYPD did her employer Dr Andrew Fagelman 155 Spring St a favor since he did not fire her. I sent an private investigator to ask if he spoke to the NYPD and he said no comment. He did comment he's never met me and I'm not his patient. He and the women in the video never apologized to me. I am told I was lied about and blamed. I have deleted hooks false cross-complaint. I was read the letter she sign stating if I ever come back and file assault charges again she will file another cross-complaint. That would be too false cross complaints that apparently she's confident the NYPD will help her out with rather than bring to the Manhattan DA.

The mayors office forwarded my email about 911 tech corruption and NYC Pensions to Mr Eure as well. In my lawsuit against the city the NYPD and internal affairs I stayed in part but was done to me was retaliation for being a whistleblower including 911 (HP, etc.)
