Cherry has been the target of at least two federal civil rights lawsuits during his career. Both of those cases were settled by the city, according to court records. Both lawsuits came while Cherry was assigned to the Brooklyn North Narcotics Division at the 73rd Precinct. The incidents both stemmed from “stop-and-frisk” arrests.

Once upon a time I would have assumed these accounts were highly exaggerated or completely made up but now I believe they are true and he has probably done much worse that was never reported.

Now I'm starting to feel a dog pile
He has and will receive substantial discipline ... his tirade will probably cost him somewhere in the neighborhood of 15.00 a second... I assume he will get 30 days on the bricks by the civilian review board. I thought his apology was complete .. I thought the police chief didnt sugarcoat the behavior identifying it as totally unacceptable
The lawsuits don't name him specifically nor say he was the instigator of them... so drawing conclusions is unfair. It is not unusual to receive complaints as a picensn. They are founded unfound or unsubstantiated.... sounds like his were unsubstantiated.

But, by the end of the day he'll still get his $136k per year.

The NYPD Civilian Review Board does not mete out discpline itself. It is purely investagatory and recommends (or not) cases to the NYPD Office of the Inspector General which has the discretion to act as it sees fit on the CRB's findings; e.g.:
