With 72 hours of the above video’s YouTube posting, the vicious assailant on the video was identified and is now being actively sought for the horrific assault he perpetrated on his helpless, elderly female victim. Now, these types of videos can be submitted directly to the City’s police. Coming to you soon, the NYPD’s video submission network: BlueTube.
Scenario: Average Joe/Jane is minding his/her own business (or not), filming around town and captures potentially criminal activity on video. He or she may be aware of the video’s contents at the time or connect it with a news report.
Quandary: What to do with the video??
Solution(s): a)Delete it, b) show it to the retired cop neighbor, and follow his/her advice, c) wait and see if a reward is mentioned or d)submit it to the NYPD and let them determine the vid’s use and viability.
We’re hoping most people will go with at least response (d). The NYPD is putting the technology in place to receive the public’s videos as noted in this recent NY Post article.
Until the official NYPD site is up and running, we suggest dropping off videos of potential criminal activity (with relative information, i.e., time, location, focus of video) to: NYPD, One Police Plaza, New York, NY 10038. Mark the package “Video Evidence”.
When the official site does become available, we will bring you that information. It is our hope that this information will be available for the public under FOIL. Perhaps that activism should begin now through local bar and community board associations.
