Suspect cites dislike of authority in decision to assault rookie N.Y. officer with bat
By Luis Perez
Danny Fernandez says he has a problem with authority figures - and that's why he bashed a police officer in the head with an aluminum baseball bat, then stole his gun and handcuffs, he said in prison yesterday.
"I wasn't looking at the individual," Fernandez said in a visiting room at Rikers Island Jail in Queens. "I was looking at what they represented."
