Stunner: Gun-Toting NYC Thugs Taunting Police After Stop-and-Frisk Ruling

Posted by on Aug 27, 2013 at 9:18 am

Hard to believe criminals would be so daring, huh?

Thugs with guns think they’re the ones calling the shots on the streets in the wake of the anti-NYPD stop-and-frisk ruling.

“You can’t stop me! You can’t do that no more! There are new rules!” suspect Steven Sidbury, 21, allegedly yelled at officers as they approached him in crime-riddled East New York last week.

The cops walked over to Sidbury when they spotted a suspiciously heavy object in the pocket of his hoodie outside 225 Wortman Ave. in Brooklyn just before midnight Thursday.

He taunted them over stop-and-frisk, then ran and tripped — and a loaded .38-caliber revolver dropped out of his jacket, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

Sidbury was arrested — his third weapons bust in three years.

“This is just what you’re going to see more of — people are going to be more arrogant and brazen, and they’re not going to be afraid of the police,’’ said a source familiar with the case.

Cops in the troubled 40th Precinct in The Bronx also griped that criminals have been openly jeering them — even in front of their precinct — over this month’s Manhattan federal-court ruling against stop-and-frisk.

Officers responding to a call about three suspects with guns on 138th Street across from the station house around 7 p.m. Saturday saw a trio matching their description, sources said.

The suspects ran into a building, where one turned around at the stairwell and hissed at the cops, “You ain’t stop[ping] me! You ain’t gonna frisk me! No more stop-and-frisks! Whatcha gonna do?”

Shooting them would be a start.

    Many years ago when I sold Beepers (remember them?) in Brooklyn when Dinkins was mayor, a huge number of my customers were cops.

    More than once they would complain that when they drove past the projects, the hoods standing outside would lift their shirts to show the cops they had a gun.

    Under Dinkins the cops were discouraged from doing anything.. Looks like history repeating.
