    NYPD disciplines white officer who stopped black commander

    NEW YORK (AP) — A white police officer was disciplined for acting "in a discourteous manner" when he confronted a black motorist who turned out to be one of the highest-ranking commanders in the New York City Police Department, an agency spokesman said Saturday.
    Chief Douglas Zeigler, the head of the NYPD's Community Affairs Bureau and the highest uniformed black officer on the force, was off duty and sitting in his department-issued sport utility vehicle on a street in the borough of Queens on May 2 when two white police officers approached.
    The encounter turned testy, and one of the officers tried to wrest open Zeigler's door, even after the three-star chief had identified himself, police spokesman Paul Browne said.
    "He dealt with the chief in a discourteous manner, which is unacceptable," Browne said.
    He did not provide details of why the officers decided to question Zeigler. The New York Daily News reported Saturday that Zeigler was parked near a fire hydrant and that one of the plainclothed officers spotted Zeigler's service weapon inside the vehicle. Browne said he could not confirm whether the officers saw a gun.

    Who is this black commander:​
    "...There are but four black chiefs in a department of 38,000 officers – an estimated 15 to 20 per cent of whom are black. None of the four chiefs have key leadership positions.
    Of them, only one, Deputy Chief James Secreto, came up through the ranks of the NYPD. The three others — Douglas Zeigler, Gerald Nelson, and Elton Mohammed — all came from the Housing Police after it merged with the NYPD under former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani a decade ago...."
