NYPD union boss sent members overtly racist video in email

The NYPD sergeants’ union urged members to “pay close attention to every word” of an overtly racist video that the group shared over the weekend — in which an unidentified narrator bemoans “Section 8 scam artists and welfare queens” — before quickly deleting it, The Post has learned.

“Pay close attention to every word. You will hear what goes through the mind of real policemen every single day on the job. This is the best video I’ve ever seen telling the public the absolute truth,” reads an email sent to union members Saturday and signed by Sergeants Benevolent Association president Ed Mullins that contained an embedded version of the video.

The roughly 15-minute video kicks off with footage from a fatal Los Angeles police shooting as someone raps, “Don’t make the blacks kids angry.”

“One of the most astonishing aspects of police work in an urban environment is that almost literally no one has a job,” the unnamed narrator says, descending into one of several racist rants during the nearly 15-minute video.

“A presidential administration succeeded in forever vilifying its nation’s police while simultaneously granting blacks crime as their new entitlement,” the narrator says later.

The video, which was also posted to social media Saturday, was quickly taken down and the union president apologized for the gaffe.

Mullins told The Post he had gotten the video from a retired sergeant who was a “pretty good guy” and hadn’t listened to the narration before sending it out.

Mullins said he had seen footage of the shooting before — without narration — and thought it would be a “good tactical video” to share for training.

It was taken down about two hours later, according to Mullins, after someone sent him an email asking, “Did you listen to this thing?”

“There is no one to blame but me for the video that was distributed,” Mullins wrote in a follow-up email to the union members apologizing for the video’s content. “For those members who may have been offended by the video, I sincerely apologize.”
