An Asian NYPD detective is suing a man who was allegedly captured on camera spewing racist slurs at the 16-year veteran.
The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court Tuesday, says Terrell Harper harassed him repeatedly during a demonstration on March 11, calling the cop a “goddamn cat eater” and asking if “he can see right?”
“You going to Judo chop me? I don’t give a f–k, you are being recorded, too,” according to a disturbing video released by the Detectives Endowment Association, which filed the suit on behalf of Detective Vincent Cheung.
“All I care about is the apology,” said Cheung, who is assigned to the Fifth Precinct. “No matter how much is awarded, I’m donating it to some Asian aid society or anti-Asian hate society.”
The lawsuit is believed to be first of its kind, according to DEA attorney James Moschella.
Union head Paul DiGiacomo said, “This city is in a crisis of violence and in a crisis of hate. No citizen should be subject to hateful racist slurs whether they are wearing a uniform or not.”
The suit looks to force Harper to explain why he targeted the detective with the hate speech.
“It certainly has caused emotional trauma to the Detective and it clearly fits inside the current law,” Moschella said.
Harper has not been charged with a crime for the incident.
