NYの警官が信号無視した歩行者を暴行

ニュース

According to a Daily Caller report, the 84-year-old named Kang Chun Wong committed jaywalking at an Upper West Side intersection on Sunday afternoon.


A police officer came to him and tried to write him a ticket, but Wong, who doesn't speak English, didn't understand what the officer wanted and continued walking away. The police officer then tried to grab Wong, who pushed the officer away.


This prompted the fury of several cops on the scene, who descended on Wong and threw him against a wall.


According to local media, Wong came away from the encounter with a bloodied face and was brought to the police station after having four staples in hospital to close a head wound.

 経緯が書かれているところを引用。個人的な体験から言っても、アメリカの警察は、日本と比べて、歩行者の信号無視に対して、物凄く厳しい態度で臨む印象がある。アメリカに旅行する人はうかつに信号無視しないように気をつけたほうが良い。
