Ann Stanczyk had a Black Friday she'll never forget - the 49-year-old Queens woman says she was humiliated and beaten by two NYPD cops in a dispute over dog droppings.
Pictures taken by her son a day after the Nov. 26 incident show Stanczyk with a welt under one eye and a garish purple bruise on her breast, plus injuries to her hands and knee.
Yesterday, the Polish immigrant filed a complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board and plans to sue.
"I just doing it to protect other people from police brutality," Stanczyk told the Daily News. "I don't want what happened to me happen to anyone else. I want to protect the others. If it can happen to me it can happen to other people."

Guilty. But a beating seems harsh. They should have just hit her with a rolled up newspaper and rubbed her nose in it.
That...is not my poo.
Only people who don’t watch where they are walking support pooper scooper laws!
She looks like an honest woman to me. She told the police that her dog had only peed, not pooped. She was polite to them. When they pointed to a nearby dog poop, she picked it up on their order, but pointed out to them that it could not have been produced by her dog, because it was cold. Then she got handcuffed and arrested.
I’d say that these cops deserve to be disciplined or fired.
I hope she gets millions and the cops lose their jobs and go to JAIL and they have to suffer the same beating x 10.Senseless!
Well, that's another issue, but I agree. Leave the poops in the grass or bushes, and they will go back into the ground and fertilize it. Or if you don't like it on the lawn, throw it into the bushes or woods. Pick them up and bag them and it just makes a mess of the garbage cans and then has to go into the landfill, probably in a damned, wasteful plastic bag.
Not very green.
If she was Muslum and wearing a suicide vest that made it difficult to beng over and pick up the dog-crap, the cops would have picked it for her to avoid being sued. Unfortunately, she is just Polish with a clean record so she got the crap beat out of her and won’t get a dime.
Welcome to New York. Here is your bill for the court costs.
A Polish immigrant? And here she thought she was coming to the land of the free and the brave. Cross out free around NYC. There was an earlier article about the 80-year old woman fined $100 by sanitation department personnel for putting a newspaper in a trash can. That was in NYC.
Question: How come if I am lax in picking up my dog’s popo, I step in it but she never does? Inquiring minds want to know...
that poor woman looks like she had a heavy beat down...fire the cops without question...
The quest for cash is on in the big apple, there have been stories for quite a while about extremely nit-picking summonses being handed out.
However, if you have 2 cops who can’t restrain a 50 yo woman without beating the cr*p out of her you may lose in settlement money anything you might gain by over ticketing the populace.
And that dope Bloomberg thinks he can be pres?
He makes Obama look like the leader of the libertarian party in comparison.
If true this is an outrageous story.
I hope the locals organize and march to the nearest police precinct with their dogs to stage a poop-in.
Somethin’ smells fishy in Denmark. I don’t believe it.
Her hair looks much too long for this to have happened less than 2 weeks ago. Also, based on the shiners my mom got when she fell, she was severely bruised around the eyes for a month. This woman’s bruising isn’t even in the same place on the current photo as it is on the posted picture.
I’m with you.
I’m a Pole. Polish women are bold and nasty when crossed. They won’t be told they are wrong either and WILL attempt to take you out if you don’t like things their way.
Mean, bossy, and control freaks.
The Irish on my Dad’s side tempers the Pollack in me. And that says a lot.
“And that dope Bloomberg thinks he can be pres?”
Sh**berg wants to the Himmler of the new world order as soon as he can!
