    This type incident is ALWAYS uncalled for.I'm not at all surprised it occured though.I also worked in a large dept. which had seven volumes of S.O.P. each containing some five hundred pages.In essence you could be reprimanded,suspended or fired for durn near anything that was contrary to said books.Unfortunately there are always a certain amount of individuals withen the command structure who are unaware that rules and regs. should always be tempered with common sense.I ALWAYS made it a point to get to know the youth in my district,A.S.A.P. whenever I transfered to a new district.It is amazing how much trouble an officer can avoid by doing so.

    All I can say is that my superiors encouraged a positive interaction with juveniles like this! It was nothing for me to jump out of my squad, turn on my portable and throw the football or shoot a few hoops with the kids. Unheard of and I hope these officers get justice for this wrongful disciplinary action.

    The bosses do this kind of thing, then they wonder why the rank-&-file officers don't trust them. Only in the Big Apple ......

    This is crazy. All they where doing is throwing a football to children and being a positive row model to them.

    Like alexy said... but on the face of it this sounds like someone had a sharp stupid axe to grind. One would think they would rather this positive interaction than the dirty dancing.

    The department trial is what we call a KANGAROO COURT If you win there then you have a 4 leaf clover in your pocket cops barley win there. Those projects are ruff and they did nothing wrong playing with the children but the supervisor that gave them the CD , wrote them up is a complete Jerkoff. I wish them the best and cant wait too see and hear the outcome. I will post it when i hear about it

    If this is ALL they did this is a crock that reeks. Sounds like there might be a little more to this than first reported. While I am the first to go to defense of the patrol officer who is doing his job and just gets screwed by the guy with the gold badge sounds like there was some reason to watch or ask them where they were and what they were doing to bring this up... Let it play out... but on the face of it this sounds like someone had a sharp stupid axe to grind.

    BUMP SKOOLCOP!
    This is micro-managing and demoralizing LEO's who actually give a damn about community relations. Hope they have a good Union Rep who stays on top of this, and these officers prevail.

    BUMP Robo and Skoolcop. Sounds like these officers' CO and borough commander have a weed up their posteriors. This IS community policing - if they weren't ignoring calls, something serious going down at their location or playing a full 4-quarter game, what's the problem? This kid probably has a lot more positive view of LE, and these cops, than anything he's ever seen.

    Some time the brass waits for the man to stumble and then it's payback for a old grudge. if you are looking for imperfections you will usually find them first in your own mirror.

    I meant to post as long as the officers AREN'T needed on other calls. Excuse the typo.

    Good Lord............ How dare these officers pay a few minutes of attention to a 7 year old boy from the Bronx who might just use that one experience with these two officers to aspire to be a law abiding citizen simply because these two cops gave a damn. Who knows? This interaction might also make the boy want to become a NYPD cop himself........ God forbid. We certainly can't have this type of behavior and interaction from anyone wearing a uniform........ could we? Seriously........ I don't see any policy or law being violated here and hope that the officers prevail in this one.
