Buffalo Hero Chokes His Victims, Makes Videos Reveling in Thuggery

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Richard Hy, a Buffalo Police Officer who became internet famous for 15 minutes earlier this year when he was suspended for posting satire videos making light of police brutality and other types of misconduct has now been charged with harassing and choking someone he was involved in an “altercation” with.armed-government-asshole

The unnamed victims were said to have been recording a music video using their cell phones when they were involved in some sort of incident with Officer Hy and an off-duty West Seneca Police Officer, whom the department has refused to identify. Although few details have been released concerning the incident that happened on September 13th, Hy was charged with harassment and “obstruction of breath.” The armed government worker has reportedly been suspended as well while an internal “investigation” is being conducted, although whether he is on a paid or unpaid vacation was not specified.

Previously, Hy had received quite a bit of notoriety after he was suspended by the Buffalo Police Department in February of this year for posting “Vines” under the title “Angry Cops.” The satirical videos uploaded to that channel included many that joked about prison rape, police brutality, shootings and stealing from the evidence room. One of them included a video in which he claimed to have stolen a bag of cocaine from evidence and can be seen with (presumably) simulated traces of coke on his face.

Given that armed government workers such as Hy are routinely caught doing those things, it didn’t sit well with his department once he began to get a large following on various social media sites. He was suspended for 22 days for violating the Buffalo Police Departments’ social media policy. Partly because he often did the videos in uniform with his badge and name tag clearly visible.

At the time, he defended his videos to the New York Daily News:

Hy, 29, told the Daily News he thought the clips humanized cops at a time when police tactics are under scrutiny nationwide.

“Did I do anything for malice? Absolutely not,” he said.

“I just thought it was harmless fun…”

“It was kind of like a visual diary, just to show the lighter side of the job,” he said.

As is often the case though when cops show their true nature and thought process by making jokes about assaulting or otherwise harming citizens, that fun wasn’t so harmless back in September when he was caught actually choking someone.

  1. Got nuthin to say about officer Hy.

    However I did find the video on Paragard very informative.

    “Paragard® is a copper-releasing device that is placed in your uterus to prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years.”

    Most men spend untold amounts of time, effort, and cash trying to get the girl with the golden pooter. But thanks to advances in medicine (and the fact the gals are willing to stick anything up there (wings, rings, strings, cups, and I think salad dressing just to name a few I saw in the lady’s isle at the store)) the young lady with the copper coochie might just be the better deal.

    You can just say NO to Club 216. Avoid those 12 pesky monthly payments EVERY YEAR for 18 LONG years. Never utter those three terrifying words, “My baby momma.”

    Keep your gold and go for the copper!
