Racist NYPD Officer Gets 5 Years In Prison For False Arrest Of Black Man

 

Officer Michael Daragjati’s racist practices finally caught up with him, when a judge sentenced him to 57-months in prison last Friday (June 22). Daragjati was under FBI investigation for extortion, and faced federal charges for falsely arresting a Black man named Kenrick Gray, after which he remarked that he “fried another n—er.”

Brooklyn Federal Judge William Kuntz had no mercy on Daragjati, reaming him for his acitons. “Today is also your earthly judgment day,” said the judge. “My goodness sir, you just made the worst possible argument a policeman could make,” Kuntz added, referencing the officer’s argument that he is not racist. Kuntz also likened Daragjati to Denzel Washington’s character in the movie Training Day, in which he played a cop who used his status to break the law. “You knew how to act as a real police officer,” he said. “You embraced the anti-cop way, the criminal way.”

In the case of Gray, Daragjati falsified documents to warrant the arrest, and later pleaded guilty to charges of violating civil rights. He also apologized to Gray, who was in the courtroom.
