Inspector Anthony Bologna v. The Invisible Men

City Declines to Defend Sued Officer

The lawsuit was filed in February in U.S. District Court in Manhattan by two women who accused Mr. Bologna of pepper-spraying them “for no legal reason.” In May, the city indicated in court papers that it wouldn’t indemnify Mr. Bologna. Another federal lawsuit from two additional protesters was filed on Tuesday in Manhattan.

Mr. La Pietra said Mr. Bologna didn’t intend to spray the women and he expects to argue that the video doesn’t show the “context” in which the deputy inspector’s actions unfolded.

The lawyer said Mr. Bologna believed he saw men trying to sneak under the netting and sprayed twice “in the vicinity” of where he thought those men were.

    Thinking they should check out his shootings history. I wonder if he’s claimed to have seen an invisible gun before.
    All those other cops standing there and Bologna just happens to be able to see through the wall of blue from behind and spot invisible men sneaking under the fence. hah!
