In 2010, Bennett Hinds saw flashing police lights coming from behind his red Honda on W. 97th St.
“Suddenly I had three 9-mm. handguns pointed at me,” he tells me. “Three plainclothes cops, including a female, were screaming at me to ‘Get out of the f—— car.’ They searched my whole car, screaming, ‘Where’s the f—— drugs?'”
Only after they handcuffed him did they learn that Hinds was a retired police officer, once a member of an elite all-minority NYPD unit called The PEP Squad.
