Boyfriend of mayoral aide Rachel Noerdlinger told a judge his parking tickets are the result of racial profiling

The ex-con boyfriend of City Hall aide Rachel Noerdlinger told a city judge that “police lied” in slapping him with several parking tickets and that he was singled out because he was a black man with a nice car.

In a July 9 hearing before Administrative Judge Blueth Bromfield, Hassaun McFarlan tried a variety of arguments in fighting $420 in tickets he received while using Noerdlinger’s white Mercedes Benz.

When asked if he had evidence to refute a ticket for parking by a fire hydrant, McFarlan said, “Is it evidence into consideration that the police be lying?”

He went on to suggest he was singled out because of his race.

“I’m black and I drive nice car. I’m not driving an old piece; I drive all exotic cars. And I’m young. Every time I get out I’m having this problem. I got 20 tickets against me,” he complained, according to a recording of the proceedings obtained by The Daily News.

“You being a black woman, I don’t know. Maybe you might have some understanding,” he told the judge.

At another point, McFarlan, 36, argued, “The police lied. I didn’t do what they accused me to do.”

He added, “People are getting shot every day in the city and they are giving me a ticket? C’mon, that’s crazy. It makes no sense.”

The judge didn’t buy his arguments.

“Generally, parking violations you’re not in the vehicle,” Bromfield said. “They don’t know what color you are.”

    All of our problems with the police are not caused by our race – not all of them! Some of our problems are caused by our ignorance of the laws and, more often, our refusal to obey them.

    It looks as if the black judge took the black defendant’s claims under consideration, but the evidence prevailed.
