“The Bronx NYPD sergeant who shoved a handcuffed teen into a store window — shattering the glass and critically injuring the youth — was docked five vacation days, a penalty his lawyer called an “outrage” in light of a Daily News report about another cop punished more harshly for criticizing the mayor on video.Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton in May signed off on the penalty against Sgt. Eliezer Pabon, who was found guilty of using excessive force against then-14-year-old Javier Payne at an administrative trial, police sources said.But the disciplinary action was shrouded in secrecy because it came after the NYPD reversed a decades-long policy of providing the media the results of disciplinary actions taken against police officers.Word of Pabon’s punishment comes a day after The News reported that Bronx Officer Joseph Spina was docked eight vacation days for an April incident in which he was caught on video trashing the mayor while giving a driver a summons.”
