The manager of a New York City Shake Shack restaurant said he was unlawfully detained by police and "taunted" after he was falsely accused last year of poisoning three officers' milkshakes. It's not clear if Gilliam is still employed with Shake Shack, and the company could not immediately be reached Tuesday. After sipping the shakes, the officers said they did not taste right, threw them in the trash and told Gilliam. The suit says that police tested the officers' discarded shakes "and found no evidence of any bleach or other toxic substances." The detectives union tweeted out that the three officers had been "intentionally poisoned" by workers at a Lower Manhattan Shake Shack.

Award-winning actor Lisa Banes has died from injuries she suffered when she was hit by a motorized scooter on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, New York Police Department officials said Tuesday. Ms. Banes was struck by the scooter at about 6:30 p.m. on June 4 while walking in a crosswalk at Amsterdam Avenue and West 64th Street, near the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The operator of the scooter crashed into Ms. Banes after running a red light, according to the officials. The 65-year-old actor suffered head injuries and died Monday at Mount Sinai Saint Luke’s Hospital, according to the officials. Ms. Banes, who was born in Ohio and studied acting at the Juilliard School in New York City, held regular roles on television and acted in films, including “Gone Girl,” “Cocktail” and “The Hotel New Hampshire.” Ms. Banes also starred in Broadway plays and in 1981 won a Theatre World Award for her performance in an off-Broadway production of “Look Back in Anger.”

The manager of a New York Shake Shack who was falsely accused of poisoning New York Police Department officers' milkshakes with bleach is suing the officers and NYPD unions. Marcus Gilliam filed the lawsuit on Monday against the Police Benevolent Association, Detectives' Endowment Association, unnamed NYPD officers, and the City of New York. In the lawsuit he says the accusations of milkshakes being poisoned tarnished his reputation. The NYPD ultimately found "no criminality" on behalf of Shake Shack employees in the incident last year, in which three police officers said they were hospitalized after consuming an "unknown substance" inside their milkshakes.

The New York Police Department has set up a mobile command post and increased patrols in the heart of Midtown Manhattan following a surge in robberies, assaults and shootings along a corridor popular with tourists and office workers. The command post was installed on June 4 at the intersection of Eighth Avenue and West 38th Street near several hotels, stores and offices. The setup includes an NYPD truck and metal barricades that run along the city block to carve out a staging area for police. An additional 24 officers have been dispatched on daily patrols along Eighth Avenue and Ninth Avenue from West 36th Street to West 46th Street to reassure the public and deter crime, according to NYPD Assistant Chief Stephen Hughes. There were about 150 robberies in the Patrol Borough from January through May, triple the number last year.

New York City Early Voting Begins for Primary Election

Voters trickled into polling sites in New York City over the weekend to pick the next mayor in the first big test of the city’s ranked-choice voting system. The primaries in the mayoral race and other local races, including for comptroller and dozens of city council seats, take place on June 22, but early voting in all the contests began Saturday at some locations. Under the new voting system, voters can rank their top five candidates in the mayoral primary and in most other races in preferential order. She ranked five Democratic mayoral candidates. “But I ranked them because it said the city would save money if we didn’t have to go back and vote.” Ranked-choice voting avoids potentially costly runoff elections if no candidate wins the majority of votes.

"Technically, with the advent of this facial recognition technology, that trope has become a truth." Ingram said he was "taken aback" and "shaken" to learn that facial recognition tools seemed to be involved in his investigation. A new Virginia law restricting facial recognition by local law enforcement will soon put an end to the facial recognition system, the Post later reported. Reining in facial recognition technologyMomentum for facial recognition laws has seemed to wax and wane over the past year and a half. California now has in place a three year moratorium on the use of facial recognition technology in police body cameras.

REUTERS/Mike Segar/File PhotoFor months, a trio of liberal Democratic candidates in New York City's mayoral race has vied for the mantle of progressive standard-bearer in a crowded field. "New York is not a progressive city," said Christina Greer, a political science professor at Fordham University. "We know there are a lot of Democratic voters who call themselves progressive and support progressive values but think AOC is a little too far left." "She's clearly the progressive candidate that can win in this race," said Gabby Seay, the political director for the union, which represents healthcare workers.

Top Mayoral Rivals Attack Adams and Clash on Policing and Ethics

More than any other candidate, Mr. Adams has discussed issues of rising gun violence and other crime, at a time when polls show public safety to be a top priority for New York Democratic voters. At the debate, the contenders focused on issues of gun violence as well as hate crimes. She went on to sketch out plans for confronting mental illness and homelessness as part of the solution. And as in previous debates, some of the clearest distinctions in the field emerged over issues of public safety, as Ms. Wiley staked out some of the most left-leaning positions on the stage. Asked about the idea of taking guns away from New York Police Department officers, every candidate except for Ms. Wiley said no.

The Deadly Results of Defunding the Police

In June 2020, 3-year-old Mekhi James was killed on his way home from a haircut, riding in the back seat of a car in Chicago. Over the past few years, the deaths of unarmed black people at police hands—including the murder of George Floyd—have rightly generated national outrage. But the number of unarmed blacks killed by police represents a fraction of those who are killed each day in our neighborhoods. In 2020 nearly four children and teens were shot and killed each day in America on average. The movement to “defund the police,” which rose to prominence after Floyd’s death, has actually gotten innocent black people killed.

It’s Pride Month, which means cities across the country will be having parades and other festivities, albeit scaled-down versions. In New York and several other cities, parade organizers have said uniformed police officers may not march as a group. Organizers say the move acknowledges that a Pride march isn’t just a celebration and that it began as a statement about police violence against L.G.B.T.Q. This week, Jane Coaston speaks to André Thomas, a co-chair of NYC Pride, which organizes the parade, and Brian Downey, a New York Police Department detective and the president of the Gay Officers Action League.

Wall Street boomed and property values soared, drawing foreign investors who parked their fortunes in constantly appreciating New York City real estate.

Of the 100 biggest school districts in America, New York City’s school system already spends the most per capita. The mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia, formerly the commissioner for the New York City Sanitation Department, pulled ahead in the polls in late May.

The Supreme Court declined Monday to consider the constitutionality of a federal law requiring men, but not women, to register for the military draft when they turn 18. But a federal appeals court overturned the ruling, concluding that it was bound by a 1981 Supreme Court decision upholding the men-only requirement. The Selective Service Act requires all men to register for the draft within 30 days of their 18th birthday. But in 2015, the Defense Department opened all military roles, units, and schools to women. Previous Supreme Court rulings have said that "the court should defer to Congress where possible in this sensitive military context," she wrote in the government's legal brief.

Native New Yorker and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the Democratic Party's leading progressive voices, on Saturday endorsed Maya Wiley's bid to become the next mayor of New York City. The New York Democrat's nod could give a boost to Wiley, a former lawyer for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has lagged behind Democratic frontrunners Eric Adams, Andrew Yang and Kathryn Garcia. "We have an option of a candidate who can center people, racial justice, economic justice and climate justice," Ocasio-Cortez said during her announcement in New York City. "[Wiley] didn't just come up to run for mayor but has experience and has a lifetime of dedication to this." "She will be a progressive in Gracie Mansion," Ocasio-Cortez said, referring to the mayor's official residence.

The Democratic candidates in New York City’s mayoral race are set to square off in a second debate on Wednesday night, as recent polls show no clear front-runner with less than three weeks before the primary. The debate will feature eight of the 13 candidates on the ballot and will take place in person after a previous debate was held virtually. Polls released after the first debate on May 13 showed a tight race with shifting preferences among voters. But support for her campaign has surged in recent weeks after she won endorsements from the New York Times and the New York Daily News. Another poll released by lobbying firm Fontas Advisors and Core Decision Analytics had Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams leading with 18%.

New York City police have charged a man with a hate crime after he was arrested for an unprovoked assault on a 55-year old Asian woman in the Chinatown area, police said. Alexander Wright, 48, was charged with "Assault", "Assault as a Hate Crime" and "Criminal Possession of Controlled Substance," Detective Annette Shelton told Reuters by email. The man, wearing an orange hoodie and blue jacket, then walks away as passers by come to the victim's aid. "This just happened in my district in Chinatown," Niou said on Twitter, adding the video was sent by a constituent.

FBI Joins NYPD to Address Rise in Anti-Semitic Crimes in New York City

Federal agents and the New York Police Department are fighting a rise in anti-Semitic hate crimes by launching new investigations and increasing community outreach and patrols in affected neighborhoods. Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said agents discussed anti-Semitic crimes with Jewish groups and held meetings and conference calls with community leaders in May as more than two dozen crimes with anti-Semitic motivations were reported to the NYPD. The push includes posters with instructions for reporting hate crimes in languages including Yiddish, Hebrew and Mandarin. The FBI defines hate crimes as crimes in which perpetrators act on a bias against the victim’s race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or other categories. Hate crimes potentially carry a more severe penalty than crimes without the designation.

Police made 26 arrests on charges including disorderly conduct and criminal possession of a weapon, the officials said. The NYPD is also investigating two incidents of commercial fireworks being fired at counterdemonstrators on West 47th St., the officials said.

New York State Attorney General, Letitia James, speaks during a news conference, to announce criminal justice reform in New York City, U.S., May 21, 2021. New York Attorney General Letitia James introduced a measure Friday that would tighten the rules governing the use of force by law enforcement. James' office touts the new bill, dubbed the Police Accountability Act, as "the most far-reaching use of force reform in the nation." The bill would also raise the standard of proof of criminal conduct required to establish justification for lethal force. This important legislation corrects that and defines it in the law," said New York state Sen. Kevin Parker, a Democrat, who sponsored the bill.
