Ambassador of Scarsdale’s director presided over unlicensed Brooklyn facility

By JASON CHIREVAS

David Pomerantz is the executive director of The Ambassador of Scarsdale, a new 115-unit “resort-style” housing complex for seniors on Saxon Wood Road, which is scheduled to open this month after it was issued its license by New York State to operate as an assisted living residence in April. Heading a licensed facility will be a departure for Pomerantz who, as executive director of Prospect Park Residence in Park Slope, Brooklyn from 2009 to 2014, oversaw an assisted living facility for seniors that operated unlicensed, and, in some cases, without the sufficient care apparatus for some of its residents, for most of his tenure.

Editorial

Can it happen here?

The suspension of a Greenburgh police officer for an offensive posting on Facebook is a local manifestation of global confusion about the rights and limits of free speech and national concern about racism on police forces.

We continue to be amazed that each month another black man or boy is killed by police somewhere in the United States. Knowing what has happened to their colleagues, how can police be so oblivious to the risk of shooting unarmed men? Why do they keep
doing it?

As far as we know, Officer Brad DiCairano has not been accused of using excessive force on duty or of physically harming anyone, but we wouldn’t blame the black citizens of Greenburgh for distrusting him. His post implies that he equates black protestors with rampaging baboons. Not a constructive attitude when policing black neighborhoods in Greenburgh.

If he were a private citizen, DiCairano would certainly have the right to post racist pictures or comments on Facebook. But he is not a private citizen. By accepting employment as a police officer, he has agreed to accept certain limits on his First Amendment rights. We are pleased to see police chief Chris McNerney take prompt and decisive action in suspending DiCairano from the force.
