Man with color thrown from 4th story fire escape by New York City police officers.

I was recently retained by a young black male who was assaulted and battered in his Brooklyn apartment by several members of the New York City police department.  When he ran to his  window to call for help, he was violently  pushed out of his window and on to a fire escape. The police officers then threw him off of the fire escape to the ground below. To make matters worse, the police officers then dragged the man for some unknown reason. The police officers then intentionally failed to call for medical assistance. A notice of claim, a prerequisite to bringing a lawsuit against the City, was filed last week. Additionally, complaints were filed with the Internal Affairs Bureau and the Civilian Complaint Review Board who are performing an investigation of this matter.  Does this outrage you as much as it does me?
