Corrections officer attacked by 5 Bloods gang members

Another city correction officer was attacked at a Rikers facility – this time by a pack of Bloods gang members, the president of the jail guards’ union said Wednesday.

Elias Husamudeen, the president of the Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association, said the officer was assaulted Wednesday afternoon with a cane by five Bloods members at The Bronx’s Anna M. Kross Center. It came just a day after a Brooklyn correction officer was savagely beaten by an inmate accused of murder in an attack caught on surveillance footage.

The inmate who attacked the officer on Tuesday was also a Bloods member, Husamudeen said.

“All of this is going on while the commissioner does nothing,” said Husamudeen as he called on Department of Correction Commissioner Cynthia Brann to resign from her post.

“We’re calling for her resignation – it’s time for her to go,” Husamudeen said as he also put the blame for the spate of assaults on correction officers on Mayor de Blasio.

“It’s time for the mayor to do his job. All of this is happening because of his policies,” Husamudeen said, adding, “The mayor has decided it was too cruel and inhumane to segregate [the inmates] and to remove them from [general] population to protect correction officers.”

Husamudeen went on to say that Hizzoner “has marginalized the life of correctional officers. He’s decided the life of mostly black and Latino and people of color is not worthy of his attention – him or the city council.”

“Today what are they concerned about? Uber,” Husamudeen said. “They’re at City Hall worrying about Uber and we have corrections officers who are being beaten, beaten to death and they’re worried about Uber.”

Husamudeen said that since de Blasio took office in 2014, there have been more than 2,000 attacks on city correction officers.

In the past two weeks, there have been five attacks on correction officers, Husamudeen said.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
