Cop Gives Break To Teen Who Punched Him In Face, So She Brags Online

Diamond Forrest punched a police officer in the face and the bragged about on Facebook

New York, NY – The New York Police Department (NYPD) didn’t charge a 17-year-old with a felony for hitting a police officer in the face and let her off the hook. Diamond Forrest responded by gloating about it on Facebook.

Forrest also admitted to the New York Post that she doesn’t like police.

An unidentified NYPD housing officer was among several officers who responded to an incident March 6 at an apartment. The 5-foot-4, 170-pound Forrest was acting in a violent and threatening manner, according to the New York Post.

Police said that Forrest punched a police officer and then said, “I’m sorry I hit you, officer.”

The police officer decided not to arrest Forrest because he wasn’t injured.

Forrest was issued a summons for disorderly conduct, a violation punishable by up to 15 days in jail. The more serious offense is second-degree assault on a police officer, the New York Post reported. That crime is a felony with a seven-year prison sentence and a mandatory minimum of two years.

Forrest didn’t show appreciation for facing the less serious charge.

Forrest wrote on Facebook: “I duffed like 3 cops today .. I’m glad they let me go.” She then added a crying emoji.

“75th Precinct is horrible,” Forrest told the New York Post. “I don’t like them. I don’t like how they go about things. It’s despicable and horrible.”

In October, Forrest posted a photo of herself holding up a middle finger with a 75th Precinct police cruiser in the background.

Forrest said she called for help because she was having trouble with her boyfriend’s brother.

“I called for help, but when they came in, they came in acting rough and pushed me out the way,” she told the New York Post.

“They hit me first! That’s why they didn’t arrest me. I hit one of them by accident,” she added.

Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, didn’t approve of not charging someone who has punched a police officer.

“We’re sending a message that it’s OK to punch a police officer,” Mullins told the New York Post. “This never would have happened 30 years ago.”

Do you think that assaults on police officers should ever be excused? We'd like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the comments.

I do believe DeBlasio is the worst mayor New York has ever had! Seems he's out to destroy it!

I have a question for her. If she doesn’t like cops, especially the ones from the 75th, why call them for help? Can’t have it both ways. You either respect them and the job, or don’t call when you need help.

That's not how that works. You may not like government, and even be vocal about it, but they still need to do their job.

Say you didn't like Obama and you made a post about every single day. You would still expect the leader of the government to carry out his orders, because that's his job.

my experience working with juvenile offenders tells me they aren't stupid(well, not totally) and they know they are immune to serious consequences and even when faced with them they know to hang their head and shuffle their feet playing the nods and it works

The moral of the NYPD is on a downhill spiral. That mayor they have hates cops and he would rather love on a thug than back his own officers. I feel for the officers that work there. Until they get rid of the mayor the whole thing stinks! Brothers and sisters in blue hang tough!!

More fallout from Black Lives Matter and then environment of hate against police. Police are the good guys.

I don't blame the officer for not filing charges because I don't think I would either, even if I did know she would mouth off about it. A prison stint for something so stupid is just unreasonable to me. I'd do something much worse. I'd pay off a heavy bill she has and then give her a stern talk to really make her feel like a schmuck. And at the end, I'd say "I didn't file charges because I'm a nice guy. But some of my buddies, they're not nice like me. So think about that before you let your twitter-opinion put you in a world of hurt."

Can she be charged now with assault on the officer?
She thinks she's a tough bitch?
Next time she has the nerve to call for help from our brave cops, lose the address, oh, wait, can't find the location.
By the time they do get there, maybe she will be dead. Nice ending to a bitches life.
