A group of Halloween trick-or-treaters dumped boxes of garbage on an NYPD patrol vehicle in Brooklyn, then stood by laughing as the officers tried to clean up the mess, video posted on social media shows.
The video, posted on Facebook on Thursday, was taken at the corner of E. 95th St. and Clarkson Ave. in Brownsville.
“Trick or treat, m—— f—–s!” someone says off-camera as two officers wearily remove the cardboard boxes from the patrol car.
“A lot of people call 911 in this neighborhood. They’re holding us up,” one irked officer says as he points off-camera.
“This is what happens in the hood. Police get trash,” says the man taking the video. “Trick or treat!”
Not everyone was amused by the trashy trick.
“That is so wrong in so many ways. remember they are just working like you and … not all police officers are bad,” one woman commented on Facebook.
The incident is yet another example of police officers being taunted on the job, following various attacks over the summer where cops were doused with water and food as they responded to complaints.
