After Eric Garner's murderer was fired in 2019, the NYPD threw a temper-tantrum staged a slowdown in protest, and instead of pandemonium ensuing, the opposite occurred as crime decreased substantially.

Hey NYC criminals, want to really fark with the police?

Stop committing crimes for the next month or two.  Take a vacation.  Go to Jersey instead to rob somebody.

It'll be really confusing for everybody if there's 26% fewer cops on the street yet crime goes down.

Anyone who voluntarily chooses to lose their NYC city job over vaccines will almost immediately be replaced.  People want city jobs and many have years-long waiting lists for hiring.  Especially FDNY.

Also, to actually address the central conceit of the thread: cops are mostly security theater, and the only reason New York was 'cleaned up' was because Giuliani used cops more or less brute force the homeless and other 'undesirable' elements out of the city.

It's almost as if cops are a state sponsored gang of bullies that peaked in high school, and their threats are dependent on the premise that they don't actually solve any of society's ills!

A hole bunch of public safety workers who are not really clear on the concept of public safety are voluntarily defunding themselves.

win-win

We can spend the next few years re-staffing these jobs with civic-minded civil servants.
 
2021-10-29 5:18:07 PM  
Oh please. Even with the recent uptick in crime (which has leveled off this year, and is not even unique to NYC), we're only back to the bad old days of ... the early Bloomberg administration. We're still one of the safest large cities in the US.

Did you know how many Jizz moppers lost their careers when Guilianni took those places out of business?

Hundreds of jizz moppers out of work...standing in the unemployment line.


"Sorry sir, we don't have any work for jizz moppers, would you consider being a waiter at the new Applebee's in time square? Come to think of it, you might be able to mop even more jizz there in their bathrooms..."

You laugh, but, I used to work as a third-shift porter in a Dunkin' Donuts in CT, next to an industrial park with a bar. The things I cleaned up in those bathrooms would horrify an EMT.

So what you guys are saying is, if there are fewer cops on the street, there will be a reduction in reported crime.  That's some genius right there.  You guys need to bottle that up and sell it.

For real. Honestly considering seeing what's going to be available in sanitation. Play this right and I'm looking at a 6 hour workday with absurd benefits.

Plague spreaders shouldn't be working public service jobs anyway. How are you going to "protect and serve" while spreading around your Trump Lung withering plague filth.

Or any jobs for that matter. Or have access to housing, financial services or public spaces.

My mother in law owned a jazz bar in downtown Baltimore.

At least once a night she had to call EMT because some idiot was doing illegal things in the restrooms.

and my dad owned 3 restaurants and I was the poor sap that had to clean the women's room. I swear they are more nasty then the men's room.

Gross...

Not in the NY suburbs, they'd still need to be vaccinated.

This is true.  Boston and Philadelphia are suburbs of NYC and they require vaccinations.

If you have brainwashed yourself to the point where you are refusing a vaccination you are no longer suitable or welcome in your public safety job.  There's the door.

If it's anything like when the NY cops went on strike then things will actually get better.

So bye bye plague piggies.

There have been challenges to vaccine mandates for a long time.  Guess what?  The US Supreme Court sided with the mandates!  So good luck challenging that, plague rats.

We're within days of the one year anniversary of the first Covid-19 vaccine passing its tests (just after Election Day IIRC; then the EUA was issued on December 10 or 11.

There's still a mofa-sized-and-shaped hole in my house from when I shot out of my house like a rocket to the pharmacy where I got my vaccine shots.

That there's so many anti-vas cops is fully illustrative of the far-right wing rot inside police departments.

Like, imagine if any other profession did something like this. If fire departments started doing walkouts and threatening to quit over installation of 5G towers, there'd be cause for concern.

Neat, bleah, yes, and yes. I've never had to peel a used tampon off a wall in a men's room, and, yes, I've had to remove used condoms in both rooms.

Ironically (or not?) the 70s crime was also because of the corruption in the police force itself that helped to enable and perpetuate it.

There were many other extenuating circumstances, so this was definitely not allcops. The Irish/Italian/whatever mobs still played a huge role in many facets of the economy and government infrastructure.

And, definitely ironically, Giuliani was actually a reasonably good guy back then...
