Brooklyn, NY Man to Sue City Over Anti-Gay Assault by Homophobic Cops
Jabbar Campbell, a gay Brooklyn man is claiming that he was attacked by homophobic police officers who responded to a noise complaints at a party he was having and that the officers tried to disable a surveillance camera on the outside of the building before entering and then beat him mercilessly while screaming anti-gay slurs.
Officers from the 77th Precinct, responding to reports of noise at Campbell’s Sterling Place party, “They bum-rushed me” Campbell said after he opened the door of his apartment.
“They were screaming and cursing saying things like ‘fag,’ ‘homo,’ ‘a–hole,’ just a bunch of anti-gay slurs,”
Campbell said he was beaten by the officers, who bloodied his mouth, split open his lip and caused swelling to his left eye. He was then handcuffed and charged with resisting arrest — and spent 24 hours in police custody.
Campbell, a 32-year-old forensic specialist filed legal paperwork Wednesday revealing his intention to sue the city.
