Cops Strip Boy Naked, Beat Him and Leave Him in a Swamp

Two Staten Island cops are in hot water for trying to scare a 14-year-old boy they caught tossing eggs on Halloween by stripping off his clothes and dumping him in a desolate area, a police source and family members said.

Officers Thomas Elliassen and Michael Danese caught the prankster throwing eggs at cars in a 120th Precinct neighborhood about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, the source said.

The cops drove the teen to a swampy area of the 122nd Precinct, dropped him off wearing only boxer shorts and socks and left, the source said.

The boy, Rayshawn Moreno of Graniteville, walked to a Burlington Coat Factory store on South Ave. and asked a security guard there to call his parents, who picked him up, his dad said.

"Rayshawn was taken to a secluded, remote area, stripped of his clothes, beaten by the officers and left for dead," said his father, James Hezel.

The cops later told their supervisor that they dropped the kid off to scare him, the source said. They said they returned to find him later but that he was gone, the source said.

"He is shaken up. He is scared. He is terrified," Hezel said of his son, a freshman at Port Richmond High School.

Elliassen and Danese were put on modified duty. Their guns were taken away, and they were both working behind desks, the source said.

"The officers were placed on modified assignment based on a complaint made and the matter is under investigation," an NYPD spokesman said.

Internal Affairs Bureau detectives interviewed the boy and his mother last night.

Hezel said he believed the officers, who are white, picked on his son because the teen is black.

"There's still racism in the New York Police Department, especially in Staten Island," the father said.

Officers Thomas Elliassen

Officer Thomas "The Pussy" Elliassen

Staten Island cop bragged of being a gangsta on MySpace

One of the two city cops accused of dumping a 14-year-old boy at a Staten Island swamp to teach him a lesson brags about being a "gangsta" on a personal Web page.

A gleeful photo of Officer Thomas Elliassen shows him sitting between two curvy women.

"Damn it feels good to be a gangsta," the MySpace page declares.

The main headline on the Web site screams, "LET'S DO LINES OFF A STRIPPERS A--!!!" - an apparent reference to drug use.

Three of Elliassen's neighbors identified him as the man in the photograph. The MySpace page also notes he is 28, lives on Staten Island and last logged onto the site on Halloween.

That was the day Elliassen and his partner and roommate, Officer Richard Danese, also 28, allegedly caught Port Richmond High School freshman Rayshawn Moreno throwing eggs at cars.

Rather than arrest him, the cops packed the boy into their squad car and dumped him at a desolate swamp 2 miles away, police said. The cops later told supervisors they were trying to scare the teen and drove back to find him minutes after dropping him off, police said.

But Rayshawn already had walked to a nearby strip mall and asked a security guard to call his parents for help.

Elliassen and Danese, who both joined the NYPD in 2004, were arrested Thursday and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree unlawful imprisonment, both misdemeanors.

Elliassen's MySpace page is registered as "shouldhavebeenfamous."

Rayshawn's lawyer, Jason Leventhal, said the personal Web page "says it all."

"It speaks for itself. This is a young officer who's not trained properly and has no respect for his shield and the authority that goes with it," Leventhal said. "To think it's all right for a police officer to publicize himself like this, it's scary."

Rayshawn's dad, James Hazel, told the Daily News Thursday that the cops had stripped off most of the teen's clothes, leaving him in only boxer shorts and socks.

"He was scared to death," Leventhal said. "He told me he sprinted down railroad tracks at 9 p.m. because he was terrified that they would come back."

Police sources said the cops deny they made the boy undress or manhandled him.

Leventhal said the officers, who were placed on modified duty, should be hit with more serious criminal charges.

"That sounds like kidnapping and official misconduct to me," the lawyer said. "I am not happy that they were charged with low-level misdemeanors."

Hazel said yesterday his son was too traumatized to go back to school. "He's trying to get back to doing normal children's activities," he said.

Parents want cops charged with hate crime after stripping teen

The parents of a black New York City teenager who was picked up by two police officers on Halloween for throwing eggs at cars are asking for the officers to be charged with a hate crime.

When one of the eggs hit a police car, 14-year-old Rayshawn Moreno was taken into custody, driven to a remote, swampy area of Staten Island, forced to strip down to his boxer shorts and socks, and left there alone.

"He's been stripped of his dignity, his civil rights," said Rayshawn's mother, Telisa Hazel.

The police officers, who say they were just trying to teach the boy a lesson, now face misdemeanor charges of unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a child. However, Rayshawn's parents say that's not enough and have asked for the district attorney to investigate whether there are grounds for bringing a felony hate crime charge as well, claiming that the officers, who are white, used a racial epithet to their son.

To kidnap someone, hold them against their will and endanger a child is only a "misdemeanor?" No wonder most of the bad guys live in New York, they can get away with just about anything.

Where in the job description of a police officer does it say they're allowed to "teach someone a lesson?"

I say hang these cops and set an example for the rest!

NEW YORK - Staten Island police officers handcuffed 14-year-old Rayshawn Moreno on Halloween night, placed him in the back of their marked patrol car, drove him to a secluded wooded area, and left him. The two White officers wanted to teach him a lesson for throwing eggs at passing cars.

The teen had to run over a mile in gym shorts and socks to a mall where he asked a security guard for help.

Community activists attended an NAACP-sponsored Dec. 3 press conference to protest a decision by the district attorney not to present the case against the two officers to a grand jury. Officers Thomas Elliassen and Richard Danese were scheduled go to court Dec. 5, but the hearing was postponed. They were facing charges of misdemeanor second-degree unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a child.

District Attorney Daniel Donovan will not answer reporters’ questions, but in a statement, said he was acting within the legal framework available under the state penal code. “These are the highest charges available,” Mr. Donovan said.

The attorney for the family wants prosecutors to charge both officers with second-degree kidnapping.

“What I am asking for is for the law to be followed, and if it’s not the law, show me where a judge ever said that the facts presented here don’t give rise to a kidnapping,” attorney Jason Leventhal explained to reporters.

“This is about a police cover-up,” Mr. Levanthal told The Final Call before the press conference.

“We are asking for a full investigation concerning why the district attorney won’t convene a grand jury,” said Ed Josey, president of the Staten Island chapter of the NAACP.

If the officers are convicted on the misdemeanor charges, they face a year in jail. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the department is awaiting the outcome of the case before determining what to do with the two officers. Both are on desk duty and have been relieved of their weapons.

“They need more than a year in jail,” Mr. Josey said. “Unfortunately, I don’t expect anything but a slap on the wrist.”

According to the penal code, a person is guilty of unlawful imprisonment in the first degree, when another person is restrained under circumstances which expose the latter to risk or serious injury.

Mr. Josey joined Atty. Levanthal on a ride to the spot where the officers left the teen, and found train tracks with a live rail. “Suppose the young man had run into that live track?” he asked.

This is criminal behavior and a gross dereliction of police department procedures, said Marq Claxton, a former NYPD officer and a member of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care.

“People are making a mistake when they call this police misconduct, when you kidnap a juvenile, and then place him in danger, that is criminal behavior. These officers should have been immediately terminated, and their commander replaced or fired because he is part of the cover-up,” Mr. Claxton said.

“I want justice for my son,” Telisa Hazel told reporters. “They tell me this is ‘old school’ policing. But, I am older than either one of these officers, so what do they know of ‘old school?’ If that were true then they should have put him in their car and brought him home to us,” Ms. Hazel said.

James Hazel, Rayshawn’s father, told reporters that if the parents had taken the boy to the woods and left him, the Agency for Children’s Services would have arrested them. “So how do they have the right to treat our son this way?” Mr. Hazel asked.

“The constitutional and civil rights of Rayshawn were violated Halloween night when the officers, no matter how well meaning, decided to take the law into their own hands. This is unacceptable and simply cannot be ignored,” added the Staten Island Ministerial Alliance in a prepared statement read by Rev. James Seawood, of Brighton Heights Reform Church.

Mr. Josey told The Final Call Dec. 4 that the district attorney postponed the trial date, saying he needed more time to investigate the charges.

Two "vigilante" Staten Island cops were indicted yesterday on charges they punished a 14-year-old Halloween prankster last year by stripping and abandoning him in a desolate swamp.

Richard Danese and Thomas Elliassen of the 120th Precinct handcuffed Rayshawn Moreno and tossed him into the back of their patrol car to teach him a lesson for egging cars, according to Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan.

But instead of charging him, they allegedly dispensed their own brand of punishment by taking him for a 40-minute drive, stripping him, hitting him and abandoning him alongside railroad tracks.

The cops will be arraigned on a 33-count indictment that will be unsealed today in Staten Island Supreme Court.

The most serious charge is unlawful imprisonment, a felony that could land them behind bars for up to four years.

"I'm sorry. I can't make a comment or anything like that," Danese said before hanging up when called for comment.

Eliassen's lawyer, John Patten, said, "When all the facts come out, there will be two completely different versions of the story."

Rayshawn's mother, Telisa Hazel, said, "We're really happy that these officers were finally indicted and we hope that they will be held accountable for their actions."
