Lame Cops: Several Off Duty NYPD Cops Stood By While Bikers Beat Dad

BEATINGAt least five off-duty New York Police  Department officers have admitted being present at the savage revenge beating  last weekend on the Henry Hudson Parkway, according to reports.

Among the off duty cops were at least two  detectives and three other officers, all who witnessed the attack and did little  to stop it. One of the detectives, an undercover narcotics officer, watched as  the violence broke out and chose not to break it up for fear of ruining his  cover.

The five officers were not the only ones  present, WABC is  reporting that the NYPD is investigating whether several off-duty corrections  officers were also present. Police present for the violent attack did not begin  coming forward until Wednesday – four days later.

It is believed that the 38-year-old biker who  was seen on the video smashing his helmet into the Range Rover’s window is  expected to turn himself in to police for his role in the melee, according to  WABC. It is not clear what further role, if any, he played in the  fracas.

Investigators have already questioned some of  the six individuals seen in the YouTube video of the assault, according to WABC.  They plan to talk to as many as possible, the station noted.

‘This is a complex investigation with a lot  of people involved,’ a source told WABC.

One of the bikers who spoke to investigators  said that Mr Lien ‘drove erratically and bumped the bike on the side,’ adding  ‘when he bumped that bike on the side, that bike became aggressive because his  life was in danger,’ according to WABC.
