Downgrading of crimes still going on
From Eyewitness News:
John Jewett says he was victimized twice. First, by a young man he met at a bar and then by the Midtown North Precinct. It all began, last March when the man he met allegedly attacked him with a wood table and threatened to kill him. Police responded, and Jewett was rushed by ambulance to the hospital. He had a fractured rib, numerous cuts and bruises and broken teeth.
Jewett says that the police did everything in their power not to have him file complaint. When he went to the Precinct to get the assault report, he was told there was no record of the incident. For weeks, he pleaded with the Precinct to file it as a crime and charge the man who attacked him.
