Smackledorfer: Note it mentions compstat meetings.This is deplorable, but final control over cops goes to elected officials, does it not?Kick the farkers out.
lizyrd: Smackledorfer: Note it mentions compstat meetings.This is deplorable, but final control over cops goes to elected officials, does it not?Kick the farkers out.Yeah.Instead of just accepting that a city needs X number of cops based on whatever criteria is used (density, crime rate, land area), there is a huge push for quantitative "productivity." The idea that a police officer is simply patrolling, on the clock but not doing anything in particular, is offensive to some. By demanding productivity, they are forcing a proactive approach on a service that is reactionary by nature.It isn't the average patrol officers that think it's a good idea to hassle people for petty stuff and create hours of paperwork. If you told an average cop, "Here's you job: Patrol your assigned area. Keep an eye out for major violations of the law. Assist the public. Issue tickets when necessary as a corrective measure, not as revenue generation. Respond to emergencies when dispatched," he'd be thrilled. That's what most of them sign up for.Instead, the city administration is on the chief for proof that his cops are "doing something." The shiat starts rolling downhill, a few supervisors get chewed out, and before you know it a bunch of useless paperwork is generated by hassling residents. The chief gets lots of numbers to show the politicians proving that his cops are busy, so his bosses back off him.
jedihirsch: Actually Rudy made almost no new rules (actually he eliminated many) all he did was actually enforce the ones that existed (something novel) as well as increased the NYPD from 16,000 cops to 42,000 cops (now 34,500, as they were reduced after crime fell) In fact under him Police abuse actually dropped, we only gave up the constitution and our rights under Nanny Bloomy
OgreMagi: I'm getting my NYC mayors mixed up, so it seems.
teenage mutant ninja rapist: Smackledorfer: BMFPitt: Smackledorfer: I feel people like you, if given the power, would be even worse than those you rail against.Who are people "like me"?What do you see as the proper response to this kind of thing?Why should I bother trying to reason with someone calling for the death penalty for cops and elected officials?Cops and elected officials should be put to death. Or atleast beating, givin the state of things.
Fark It: Impossible. These are America's heroes, New York's finest. Remember 9/11.
Trance354: cop hate thread of the day?/little late in the day for it
jedihirsch: Yaaaawwwwwwn.Don't blame the cops blame the system that has been around since Mayor LaGuardia. You want to know who are really bad with tickets, the Sanitation Cops, who give tickets for things that aren't illegal, then get the worst court date times to fight it, so most people just pay it. The NYPD has nothing on the sanitation cops.the very hated Sanitation Cops who think b/c they got a badge they can be a$$holes and pricks
davidphogan: Mock26: davidphogan: Fark It: Impossible. These are America's heroes, New York's finest. Remember 9/11.New York's finest is the FDNY.Those lazy bastards could not even contain two skyscraper fires! Instead of doing their job and putting out the fires they turned tail and ran, letting the buildings collapse. Hardly "finest" by any definition of the word.Too soon.
Oldiron_79: Smackledorfer: BMFPitt: Smackledorfer: Note it mentions compstat meetings.This is deplorable, but final control over cops goes to elected officials, does it not?Kick the farkers out.Kick them out, send them all to jail under RICO laws, and farking hang them.I feel people like you, if given the power, would be even worse than those you rail against.If I got to be a benevolent-ish dictator of the US Im sure I wouldnt suck any worse than the republicrats and dempublicans
Fluid: Sure, it makes the commanding officer look good. But won't someone notice sooner or later that some officers are doing suspiciously well?
DarkSoulNoHope: Jeep2011: Since when did NYC become a small town?Ever since Rudy Giuliani decided that NYC should become the new Disney World for white people. Bloomberg is just continuing the bad ideas.
