NEW YORK — The NYPD sergeants union wants the head of the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau fired because IAB investigators searched the car of an off-duty cop brutally beaten outside a Queens diner on Sunday.
The union on Tuesday demanded Chief Charles Campisi be canned for treating Sgt. Mohamed Deen like a suspect. They not only rifled through the BMW, but also interrogated his wife while he was in a medically induced coma recovering at Jamaica Hospital on Sunday, the union said.
“It is clear that Sgt. Deen was the victim of a brutal assault,” they said in a statement. “No allegation of misconduct was ever made against him.”
