The Mayor of Monticello spent several hours in police custody last weekend after he was arrested for DWI. He has since plead not guilty to those charges. Friday we obtained surveillance video from the night Gordon Jenkins was held by the Monticello Police Department. YNN's Eva McKend has the exclusive report.
MONTICELLO, N.Y. -- "You still work for me, don't you," said Jenkins.
A firm warning from Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins to the Police Officers who arrested him last weekend.
"You are working overtime aren't you? I think you should be suspended because you are working overtime and you shouldn't. We'll figure that out tomorrow," said Jenkins.
During the several hours Jenkins was held after he was arrested for DWI and other charges, he shouted obscenities at Police Officers and referred to them as Nazi's and racists.
"They say you are the Klan, I believe it now. You are trying to lock every black mother****** in this ******* town. I believe all the f****** n****** and what they be talking about, about you. You lock my black a** up tonight. You got everybody else locked up," said Jenkins.
We're showing you just a small portion of video where we were able to remove the profanity.
The Mayor said he was illegally arrested and at one point said he felt like he was a having heart attack and needed medical attention. He also accused the officers of giving him welts from the handcuffs.
Throughout the ordeal, he maintained his innocence.
"You can give me ten years to life mother f******* You guys are going to pay for this. Mayor or no f****** mayor," said Jenkins.
There were accusations of racism throughout the entire ordeal.
Many of the Mayor's supporters including the ones that came out in full force Tuesday night continue to stand by him because they feel as though he has been unfairly targeted, a message the Mayor alluded to when he was under arrest.
"Maybe I should resign for Mayor and f****** be just a f****** Al Sharpton around here. Call Dennis Lynch, you know his f****** number. We're going to have an emergency board meeting tonight. I'm going to ask Rochelle to have an emergency board meeting," said Jenkins.
At several points, the Mayor accused officers of being insubordinate.
He said he has been trying to get the Attorney General to intervene.
His lawyer spoke on his behalf Friday after the Mayor's license was suspended.
"I know that the Mayor was very upset and has been upset by the treatment he's received from several police officers. I don't think it's everyone. I think the Mayor was aware there were contract negotiations beginning again this week and he felt that there might be motivation on the part of Police Officers to harass him and I think that's part of his story," said Michael Sussman.
Sussman says more will come to light the proceedings move forward.
The Mayor is due back in court next month.
Epic level racism.
Oh look - An AA acting like an AA.
The cancer is exposed for all to see
The Black Plague has hit Monticello
This guy’s history is something else. He was a registered Democrat (surprise) when he ran for the equivalent of Councilman (Trustee) and served a single term. He decided he wanted to be Mayor in 2008, but there was already a White Mayor (a Democrat-Conservative). The Democrats didn’t want him to run, so he went to the county Republicans and got their endorsement and they called him a “rising star” for the party. He beat the incumbent Mayor (as a Republican) and then switched back to the Democrats (after having used them). He won reelection in 2012 as a Democrat and since then, his antics have gone public.
This was the “big blowup” captured on LiveLink.
Sorry sir, you are not above the law and we are not peasants to be spat upon.
I believe that Crackers make up 56% of the population of that town.
Future msnbc host!
56% with the self hating White element factored in is enough for a Black majority.
Mayor Gordon Jenkins
Well, as a wise man once said, you always get the Government you deserve.
Get me Michael Susman, my Jewish lawyer!
He was arrested for DWI, and he has supporters? Is he an alcoholic? Or is it just that he’s black?
I’m sure Eric Holder will send his folks down tomorrow to file discrimination charges against the white police chief. Gotta take care of “his people”
Sounds like more Black Ku Klux Klan Racism
Heck...maybe the mayor next will go Knockout Game or Polar Bear Hunting
His superstar hollywood moment. Next he will apologize and admit he’s gay.
Such language..and the dreaded “N” word..If he was in the NFL he’d be suspended for two games..
whoever said that is beyond an idiot
You mean Jesus deserved Herod
peasants in Ukraine deserved Stalin
Uganda deserved Idi Amin Dada
I refuse to believe that
Geez! Are Republicans doormats at every level of government, in every city of every state?
