Four Jersey City Cops Suspended Without Pay After Car Chase; Kicking Victim

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop is under scrutiny by media and political foes for a Rhode Island home he bought with a line of credit from a Hudson County-based bank with which the city has deposits, and his use of an architect from Jersey City’s biggest landlord.

THE Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office is investigating a police stop and the actions of police caught on camera kicking a victim in response to a report of shots fired in Jersey City.

The department indefinitely suspended four officers without pay and reassigned two deputy chiefs amid allegations of multiple violations, including allowing the chase to go on as long as it did (6 miles), firing shots at a moving vehicle, and kicking a victim who was on fire following the chase.

Ludwig, Kahn, Kazinisky and Rodriguez are the suspended officers. They initiated the stop because they thought the car matched the description of a vehicle involved in a shooting a few nights earlier.

“We repeat our call for a full and impartial investigation into this incident,” stated Carmine Disbrow, President, JCPOBA. “Unfortunately Mayor Fulop continues to indicate that he has no intention of allowing this to be the case.”
