    Undercover NYPD Cop Watched SUV Driver Get Beaten

    "An off-duty undercover New York City police officer was among the crowd of motorcyclists on the scene as SUV driver Alexian Lien was beaten on Sunday, officials confirmed to ABC News today.

    The undercover narcotics cop did not intervene in the beating out of fear that his cover would be blown, sources said."

    It further reads:

    "The information is part of the ongoing investigation by the NYPD and the Manhattan district attorney into the confrontation and beating that happened Sunday afternoon between a group of 20 to 30 motorcyclists and Lien, caught on video and uploaded to the Internet.

    The officer's involvement is also the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation, sources said."

    Uh oh, someone is in trouble!

    In the Mossad, you can actually help engage in a terrorist act in order to infiltrate the group that you need to report on.


    It's deeply unfortunate, but I can see why he made the call he did.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    How can a cop be be undercover and off duty?

    He was a motorcyclist who was there on his own time,
    Oh. So he wasn't really undercover.



    Apparently, that motorcycle gang were trouble where ever they went.

    So he should've just blown his cover, putting himself and his family in danger, to inject himself into a fight that still would've been 2 on 20-30?

    Yeah, I don't blame him. If you remember the supreme court ruling, the police has no obligation to protect you, that's up to you and you alone.

    You can be off duty while remaining undercover and in character. Maybe he had somebody with him.

    Are you seriously misinformed enough to think that all undercover cops at the end of the day go home to their families and become their real selves again?

    Helping could have blown his cover, so I support him not doing so.

    That group of bikers is lucky. If that was me behind the wheel of an SUV vs a bunch of bikers looking to do that there would be much more than one in the hospital. I do not necessarily blame the cop for not bursting out. He was already on the scene of a group of outlaw bikers who were hunting a person down to gang beat him. He might have done some good, and he might have ended up in the same situation. I feel really bad for the people in the car because it was clear this gang went out to find a victim and antagonized a situation to the point where they put a family at risk. When you get to that point in the crazy road game you do not give. Cops have rules which is why you pull over for them, but you never pull over for someone else. Had they met someone like me I would have been going for score.You are on a bike, I have a car, you are getting hurt. I have played road warrior with other cars before, and there would be no fear in hitting a bike on a homicidal race. I don't know what those guys are thinking, but i would have played see how many bounces i can get before the final skid of blood.

    Good point. I had the same question as she, but didn't think that way but good call.

    The cop will be a credible witness, wonder if he'll be for the prosecution or defense.
