The lawsuit involves two police officers in the Bronx. New York.


[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]Hannah Biggan claims in the suit that the two cops—Nicholas Konner and John Repetti—brought the shirt to her one morning in May of 2013, saying that it was too big for one of them, and that they’d like to give it to her. Biggan says she then put it in her locker. Later, Konner and Repetti came up to Biggan, asked her to put the shirt on, then proceeded to ridicule her. From the New York Post:

Biggan put the shirt in her locker and went back to work — not knowing she was being ridiculed, the suit says. Later that afternoon, Konner and Repetti allegedly told her to get the shirt and put it on.

Repetti then used his cellphone to snap a photo of her standing alongside Konner, as both men laughed, the suit says.

When the men asked Biggan if she could read the shirt, she told them that she couldn’t read. She said she tried to read the words but she couldn’t. When she went home later, wearing the shirt, her sister Maryann told her what it meant.

    No one would ever accuse them of being overly sensitive…probably bought the same shirt for their children..

    I’m sorry, these two geniuses passed the psych test to get on the force? This is the behavior of a 12 year-old bully. This was a planned premeditated act designed to humiliate someone they should have been protecting. The act itself is not actively harmful but screams “we are unable to utilize proper decision-making skills”. These two should not even work with the public, much less in a position of authority and never in law enforcement.

    Without provocation, at their earliest opportunity they went out of their way to arrange for the humiliation of another human being, one that should have triggered their protective instincts. This just screams future “abuse under the color of authority”. And someone has issued these men firearms. People should be terrified.

      That was as terrifying, if not more so, than the 1968 movie Charly. I’m still disgusted how his coworkers treated him and I’m still haunted by the waiter scene.

    How horrible. These 2 idiots might better serve in uniform guarding a warehouse at night full of rats rather than the jobs that they currently have. What do they teach their children 1 has to wonder?
