Online marketing pioneer Bryan Eisenberg has run into a renters nightmare with a new landlord, who also happens to be a New York Police Department Officer.
Bryan has turned to the Internet by detailing his plight with landlord and NYPD Officer Mehtab Malhi at 2842brigham.com.
This sort of story (too many details to list here – read 2842 Brigham Street -Terrorized by a Police Officer Landlord) of a bullying landlord is bad to hear, but all the more appalling when the behavior is administered by one of “New York’s Finest”.
It reminds me of an experience I had about 15 years ago when I was a big brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City.
One day my little brother mentioned to me how police were bad. I explained to him how they were the good guys, but I don’t think he was buying it.
I don’t know if it was something he saw, or maybe his family taught him that the police were bad, but at just 9 years old he held those negative stereotypes some people have about police.
I’d like to think I changed his mind, but I have to wonder what the Eisenberg kids will carry with them when they see this sort of behavior from Officer Malhi.
