NYPD Allegedly Harassing Man Who Accidentally Gave Directions To Cop Killers
Karim Baker, the former FedEx employee who unwittingly gave directions to the man who shot two NYPD officers, says he has been subject to harassment and even a beating by the police.
A former FedEx driver claims he has been subjected to an NYPD campaign of harassment that culminated in a brutal beatdown for unwittingly giving an assassin directions to the Brooklyn housing project where he killed two brave cops. Karim Baker says he had no idea Ismaaiyl Brinsley was about to gun down Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu when he helped him out. But after that, Baker said he was stopped 20 times — but never ticketed — for supposed traffic infractions by vengeful cops before he was assaulted by gang officers on Oct. 21.
Baker, who says he has nothing against the New York City Police Department, claims needed hospitalization after the beat down by officers. Baker’s Lawyer, Eric Subin told the NY Daily News that he believes the police have been keeping tabs on his client, pulling him over repeatedly and shadowing his every move. This is now moving to the courts.

“Twenty times in a year is a lot of times to be pulled over and never issued a summons,” he said. “This is our strongly held theory. It’s too much of a bizarre coincidence not to hold water” …Baker has been “systematically harassed by the police,” said Subin. “They began showing up at all hours of the day and night at his mother’s house, all hours of the day and night at his father’s house. Siblings, friends, co-workers, his boss — and this went on forweeks” … Subin said Baker has had enough and he is filing a notice of claim Tuesday in Queens Supreme Court in advance of a state lawsuit.
