The Red Truth Hezitorial
YONKERS, NY — June 12, 2018 — The past Sunday incident at City Lights is revised herein through credible sources that advise there was no merciless beating by 5 YFD employees. Further, there was no attack with such veracity by 5 firefighters, that caused a man to a be beaten into a coma.
The firefighters did show up at City Lights and attempted to gain entry and were denied. Lt. Christopher Mitchell entered into a verbal altercation with an individual and was shoved. Lt. Mitchell responded by throwing a punch which struck the individual in the head. The man fell backwards and struck his head. The man was rendered unconscious. At no time did ANY of the other YFD employees strike the victim.
The probationary firefighter, who was with Lt. Mitchell, was fired. However, it was not for striking this man.
While our thoughts and prayers are with the victim, our sources do not know his name.
It seems our initial sources were incorrect or intent on misleading us. We thank those who have taken the time to advise us what did transpire.
Yonkers Police Department has gained access to pertinent video and is studying the tapes.
