BREAKING : NY Cop Sues Over De Blasio’s Anti-Police Policies

A veteran NYPD detective is fighting back against the anti-cop political machine known as De Blasio’s administration.
David Terrell has filed a $175 million-dollar claim against the city, which he claims ginned up bogus police wrongdoing claims.
Terrell claims he has been a victim of De Blasio’s anti-cop policies, and he’s asking the liberal, commie-like mayor to change his anti-police ways.
A veteran NYPD detective who has been branded a “monster” and “terrorist” by critics is fighting back — claiming he is a victim of the de Blasio administration’s anti-cop policies.
David Terrell filed a $175 million notice of claim against the city Wednesday that says it created a “cottage industry” of gang-bangers who collect taxpayer money with bogus complaints of police misconduct.
“You can sue an officer and the city’s going to pay out, whether it’s true or not true,” Terrell told The Post.
“What I say to the mayor is: Stop these people from making these frivolous claims and back the officers when something is 100 percent not true.”
“I want my name cleared, first and foremost. And I want these people to pay for their lies,” he added.
Terrell says he has been targeted by gang members and others who hire “unethical private investigators and legal counsel to file frivolous civil-rights lawsuits.”
Terrell’s notice of claim alleges violations of his own civil rights and a state law that bars lawyers from engaging in “any deceit or collusion . . . with intent to deceive the court.”
He also says he has been defamed, pointing to news reports based on “completely false or distorted information” that was spoon-fed to reporters who used it for “click bait” to generate online ad revenues.
Terrell’s legal notice, filed with city Comptroller Scott Stringer, specifically names Sarah Wallace of NBC4/New York and James Ford of PIX11, both of whom have reported on allegations against him.
Meanwhile, a column posted Wednesday on the medium.com website by reporter Shaun King — who credited Wallace and Ford in a related story Tuesday — called Terrell “one of the most brutal men in the history of the department” and said he belonged in prison.
“I’ve heard him called a ‘monster,’ a ‘terrorist,’ ‘evil,’ and have had multiple families tell me he’s ‘the worst human being’ they’ve encountered in their entire lives,” King wrote.
Terrell’s notice also accuses the law firm of Nwokoro & Scola and a fired NYPD cop-turned-private investigator, Manuel Gomez, of peddling “false or distorted information . . . through news stories and/or legal filings.”
Terrell, 44, has racked up more than 1,000 arrests since joining the NYPD in 2002, and three years ago was named a “field intelligence officer” to target gang members in the crime-ridden 42nd Precinct in the Bronx.
He was promoted to detective specialist in recognition of his role as lead officer in the 2015 takedown of the Lyman Place Crew, in which 22 reputed gang members — with nicknames like “Sal Capone” and “Mal Pacino” — were charged in a 57-count indictment.
The NYPD “is fully aware this sort of assignment is particularly dangerous and a legal minefield” in which “gang members, their families and members of community that benefit from criminal enterprises routinely disrupt criminal investigations . . . with false allegations of police misconduct,” his notice says.
But under Mayor Bill de Blasio, the department doesn’t call in the state Attorney General’s Office or the feds to help with civil or criminal prosecution, or pursue civil cases through the city Law Department, Terrell says.
errell has been hit with 36 Civilian Complaint Review Board complaints, only two of which were substantiated, both for failing to share his badge number over the phone, he told The Post.
Since 2006, Terrell been named in 15 lawsuits filed in federal and state courts, records show.Two of the cases were tossed out of court, while the city settled three — for $614,500, $55,000 and $25,000.One of the 10 pending cases involves allegations that Terrell propositioned a Bronx mom, Elizabeth ­Rosado, “whenever any of her sons, Angelo Cotto or Antonio Cotto, was arrested.”During one interaction, Terrell allegedly offered to protect Angelo from any future arrests if she slept with him, court papers claim.
In Terrell’s notice, he alleges that Angelo Cotto, 20, is a member of the Hilltop Gang. Terrell denies claims of assault and false arrest, saying he was on his “regular day off” when Angelo claims the cop busted him.
