NYPD Cops Turned in by EMT's After They saved a handcuffed Patient gets beaten bad

On July 20th, an emotionally disturbed patient was physically assaulted by four police officers. The patient was handcuffed on a stretcher, and the officers repeatedly punched him several times in the face. The only reason the attack didn’t go on was because two FDNY EMTs bodily intervened.
The attack originally began because the patient cursed and spit at one of the Emergency Service Unit officers. Although the patient was in cuffs and unable to defend himself, the officers started hitting him in the face, pulling him off the stretcher and throwing him onto the ground before tossing him back on the stretcher.
The two EMTs had been called to Brooklyn’s 67th Precinct stationhouse around 7:30pm to transport the patient to the hospital. The four ESU officers arrived on the scene to restrain the patient, who was emotionally disturbed and combative.

In the Unusual Occurrence Report filed with FDNY brass, one of the EMTs involved wrote:
“Pt. came out of the cell in cuffs. Pt. became combative with PD and (was) put on our stretcher.  Pt. was struck in the face by an officer … pt. spit in the face of an officer, whereupon the officer punched the pt. in the face multiple times.” [source]
The EMT reported that the patient spit on the officer again, and the other cops began to beat him as well.
“Three cops began to punch the patient in the face, EMS (had) to get in the middle of it to intervene. Pt’s. wounds and injuries cleaned in the (ambulance).” [source]
The second EMT was there to verify the account of the incident, and said that the patient was brought out by ESU in “handcuffs and foot shackles.” The EMT noted that the patient was
“taken off the stretcher to the ground and restrained again, pt. was thrown by ESU again on to my stretcher. Pt. sustained injuries to face and head.” [source]
Currently, the incident is being investigated by the Internal Affairs Bureau.
