Is the NYPD Starting a Fake Crime Wave? Woman Randomly Attacked by NYPD Officer in Subway



NEW YORK — An innocent 28-yr-old woman working as an MTA employee in a subway station was brutally shoved and choked in an unprovoked attack, according to reports.

The woman was working in the station at around 2:30 AM when a huge man ran over to her and attacked her.

After the attack, the man can be seen on video leaving the station grinning with pleasure, as if he had choked the woman just for fun.

The woman was hospitalized with injuries to her head, neck, and back, according to reports.

The Wonkette observed that when the New York Daily News heard about this incident, it was described as follows:

A hulking brute grabbed a 28-year-old MTA employee up in a bear hug at a Bronx train station, shoved her onto the platform and began choking her in an unprovoked attack – then ran away smiling, authorities said Wednesday.

But when learning that the attacker was a cop, the description changed to the following:

Police Officer Mirjan Lolja, 37, was suspended after the assault in which the Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker — who was on-duty and in her uniform — was allegedly put into a bear hug, thrown to the floor and choked, cops said.

Conveniently, the term ‘hulking brute’ was taken out and ‘allegedly’ was added.

“The callousness of him smiling has been dropped, too,” notes the Wonkette, “demoted to the second paragraph. This is no surprise — it’s just an example of the subtle way in which our media defers to and genuflects before law enforcement, shaping and coloring the narrative in their favor.”

Aside from typical media propaganda, many Americans are deeply concerned about this purportedly random attack. They are concerned about whether NYPD officers are planning to dress in plain clothes and begin attacking people in order to start a crime wave.

Here’s why this is a concern.  As most know, the NYPD is angry at the mayor of New York and has is currently staging a de facto strike: they’ve stopped arresting people for victimless crimes and they’ve stopped issuing revenue-generating “tickets” for harmless traffic infractions.

But the strike has majorly backfired on the NYPD, because it has demonstrated that citizens are actually saving money and avoiding harassment. The NYPD only did what Americans have been wanting them to do: leave peaceful people alone and focus on real crime.

Realizing that the strike backfired, many suspect that officers in the NYPD may purposely stage some kind of disaster or crisis scenario, or they may take to the streets at night and start a crime wave, in order to create the illusion that they are needed for protection, so that they can continue receiving salaries.


We remember that during the Egyptian revolution, police stations were burned down in just under 72 hours in several cities. Communities started their own crowd-funded patrol units, neighbors developed emergency response plans, and basic self-defense measures were taken to deal with the occasional break-in or burglary. And for a while, communities were peaceful; people began realizing that they didn’t need a police state. At that point police went undercover and began randomly attacking citizens in order to get people thinking that they were needed again.

Indeed, it appears that this “random” subway station attack by an NYPD officer in plain clothes was quite possibly an attempt to increase crime on purpose.

We must all be vigilant on our streets and fully aware of our surroundings. Take your cameras out and film anything that looks like an agent of the State may be engaged in suspicious terrorist activity.

    • Helena_Handbasket

      Police DO historically use tactics like the one the author of this article discussed.. but you are correct to say that THIS incident is not a case of such. This happened BEFORE the police strike started… and even the victim says this wasn’t a random attack… but a psycho going out of control during a confrontation.

    Not only is the video provided in this story removed (or isn’t playing) NONE of the copies of the same video are working on Youtube.

    Google doesn’t care for The First Amendment. In fact….they have an agreement to work against it on behalf of the government.

    We need our own video sharing website for specifically watching cops….that won’t get deleted or censored.

      I just watched it.
      It shows him running from the scene.

      • Kevin Murray

        The crime took place on the platform below,in an area where there were no cameras. However you can tell he is nervously running from the scene of something. Cops NEVER run away nervously in NYC.Not unless they are outmatched or caught in the middle of wrongdoing.

  • Marc Shelton

    NYPD costs taxpayers $1 Billion dollars in lawsuits over a 10 year period of time and act like the poor misunderstood brotherhood of fuckin hero’s…..these arrogant pricks refuse to admit they have ANY room for improvements and continue be corrupt…..every punk ass cop on the NYPD payroll that commits a crime and violates the civil rights of citizens has the blood of all murdered cops on their hands…..and your criminal leadership and courts as well…..

    • Sheep O’Doom

      Then the city needs to start trimming the fat. Maybe THE NYPD need to have some of their problem stations closed & Units shut down do to Cuts in funding. STARVE the Pigs.

        the yare starving themselves by not doing their jobs of revenue collecting

    • Helena_Handbasket

      What can you say about a department that is CONFIRMED to have been formed by politicians LITERALLY picking the easiest gang members to work with, and setting them against the non state-sanctioned gangs.

      It’s true.. it’s not just simple observation that allows one to call the NYPD a gang. It’s proven historical fact.

  • Ahhh, kinda like a fireman starting fires so he can put them out and play the hero.

    • Sheep O’Doom

      The BIG difference is the firefighter Union would turn their backs on that Firefighter & he would NOT be welcome back to the firehouse. His actions put the lives of his fellow firefighters at risk & they are NOT going to allow that. Maybe the FF’s Union needs to take over the Pig’s Union…

  • Ann

    You’re really grasping at straws for a story here. I hate the NYPD as much as anyone. The guy claims the lady mouthed off to him, which is entirely plausible if you’ve ever had an interaction with an MTA employee, and it’s entirely plausible this guy way over reacted and no matter what the lady said he never has a defense of hurting her. But he is a Serb I believe and they are very antagonistic people. yes I know many.

    • Peter Principle

      so why retract the story? is he a smiling thug or an alleged perp

    • In_Miami

      Try doing the same thing… I believe there would be lots of locked doors in your future!
      Cops have the EXACT same laws that WE have to follow, therefore, they should have the same penalties too!

    The reality is these disguised police aren’t police officers at all. Anyone can get a badge out of a cereal packet.

  • In_Miami

    It would have been such a tragedy if someone with a CCW just happened to stop this poor fellow from choking her!

  • koti

    Of course he was smiling to let the others know he did what they had planned…nobody should be charged with wronging anyone who is a plain clothes officer..without being informed that they are an officer…it’s just another evil plan..but when its time to reap everything they’s not going to be anything to smile about..i pray for all to do their jobs fairly..

  • therealone

    Cops are just coward pussies who think they are above the law especially in NY. Fuck all cops

  • Viewerdiscretionadvised

    Stockton California:
    Rather than sticking to the traditional form of protest in which signs are held and slogans are chanted, these citizens have taken direct action and offered a grassroots, crowd-funded incentive structure to end police brutality in their community.
    They have offered a $2,500 reward to anybody who submits information leading to the arrest or termination of cops who brutalize or kill people.
    They were able to let people know about the offer by printing all the details on flyers and spreading them throughout their community.
    The flyer specifically names 15 cops as a start, and includes pictures of at least 10 cops who have been involved in either the brutalization or killing of Americans

    • Jamila Baker

      Actually a good idea.

  • Helena_Handbasket

    This article is utter bullshit. Speaking as someone who understands that police DO use tactics like that, and am an ardent activist for police accountability, you are HURTING more than you are helping with this bullshit.
    If you’re going to speculate on whether police are using this tactic.. DO point to instances that happened AFTER the police strike started.. instead of BEFORE the police were striking. Furthermore, it is verifiable fact that this wasn’t a random attack, but an assault done in the heat of a confrontation.
    Clearly this cop is, like many of his ilk, a bastard. Also clear is that the tactic you discuss is an old one in police states, even predating the Egyptian situation. However, you do not help us get other people to take that particular concern seriously when you are posting that which is easily confirmed as bullshit.

    For the record, another old tactic in police states is to join the police watchdog groups, then issue a bunch of utter bullshit in their name, to discredit them. I’m not saying that that is NECESSARILY what you’re doing.. but unlike YOU, I’m not posting confirmed bullshit to back MY claims up.
