In NYC the rich own the NYPD and commanders are their lap dogs ticketing poor people on their behalf.
I called the First Precinct when I caught the illegal planters being dropped with Henry Buhl's flunkie Barbara Thomas over seeing their criminal drop to displace long term vendors who they consider an eye sore.
For the little People it is a recession or already a depression but Barbara Thomas, Henry Buhl and The Mercer Hotel celebrated their crime confident they are above the law.
2 years ago I documented the Mercer Hotel getting the First Precinct to ignore the hotel running a private parking scam in their loading and unloading zone yet they got the NYPD to ticket Veteran Vets from Iraq, Afghanstan, Viet Nam and Eric 81 Korean War Vet over inches.
When the good NYPD Vets who also served our Country where no enthusiastic enough Buhl dropped the illegal planters and they say there for months until we got a Holiday Miracle and We The People won over greed and cruelty.
Henry Buhl was implicated in the Vesco scandals named in at least 1 if not 2 law suits and rumored to have inherited a fortune from Daddy which is how he bought an artists loft across from Apple Soho.
I video taped the illegal drop called 311, Community Board 2 and the media.
Mocker WPIX carried the news and the miracle renewal where The People win!!!
If OWS dropped illegal planters there would have been arrests and instant removal.
Did Henry Buhl grease palms?
Thanks to NYPD who refused to ticket our Vets over inches and were so kind to me when I peacefully protested outside the First Precinct.
