"I feel like I'm in an alternate reality. We're probably the only civilized country that sends their troops into battle and then criticizes them every day," he said on May 11 while discussing the NYPD.

Police are not soldiers and law enforcement is not war. Perhaps we need to be doing a better job making that clear to them.

Want people to respect police? Try earning it. But be warned - after decades of police violence and bias being aimed squarely at the people you claim to "protect and serve", respect for police is so negative you'll have to work for years to get back to "neutral".

If Mayor Shiatforbrains insists on likening police to the military, someone should inform him that soldiers get court martialed when they don't fight.

Apparently, police officers are not  - collectively, individually, or as an organization  -  obliged to intervene to save anyone's life.

So why the hell do we give them guns, the power of life and death, a pass on nearly all brutality and murder charges, and create special classes of crime for which the penalty is DEATH? 

"Sir, I know my client, Officer bogartus, watched while that man pummeled 52 children to death over the twenty minutes that it took him to eat his sandwich , but we deny that he had an affirmative duty to intervene because OMG that guy was scary and looked like he might punch him out"

I don't remember the arguments for it but it seems kind of silly. Usually when I see things about it and close votes, the argument is along the lines of how important it is to get a lot of 2nd place votes which seems odd to me.

No... sorry, it's not ONLY used to protect themselves.  They also use it to enhance their sex life.

Isn't this the same dipshiat who was going to pay his brother $210,000 a year as "senior advisor for mayoral security"?

I'm starting to think that cops are completely corrupt at every possible level.

You don't get praise when you are just adequate at your jobs.

Perhaps start holding bad cops accountable. Like ones that run over protesters in SUVs or illegal choke holds, or assaulting women in the street, shooting unarmed people trying to enter their homes, stopping and frisking POC to in your feeble attempts to crack down on something. The list is endless. Oh and at the same time let's pay all these folks too dollar with the best benefits and only require a GED

Agreed.  "Troops"? "Battle"?  If the Supreme Court didn't allow civilians to act like soldiers with tools of war, maybe the police wouldn't have the mindset to treat them as such.

There were good candidates for NYC mayor. Why did we end up with this ex-police, corrupt tool?

The NYPD annual budget is SIX BILLION A YEAR.
 
2022-05-27 8:21:13 AM  
Since that day, the pair has rolled out a more aggressive form of policing. Neighborhood Safety Teams, similar to the disbanded and controversial plainclothes anti-crime unit, began patrols. The NYPD also launched a Quality-of-Life Enforcement Initiative. Some have criticized the initiatives as over-policing and a return to Giuliani-era broken windows policing.

The problem is literally the cops themselves and their "forms of policing."

There are plenty of stories of police making heroic efforts in the face of danger.  The problem lies where police murder innocent people or brutalize minorities without consequences.  He really needs to come down off that cross and try to understand why people criticize police officers.
And most officers aren't "going into battle".  They're just doing their job.  Stop trying to militarize police officers.  Make them do their jobs properly without the "blue-collar hero" nonsense.  And for God's sake, stop giving them MRAPs

I've already said it, but why are teachers expected to give their lives for other people's children in the case of a psychopath with a gun, but law enforcement gets to go around claiming they have to "get home safe" at the end of the day? While armed and pretty much in a starting position of power when approaching some one on the street.

Certainly, the issue here is the NYPD needs even more money.

"There is a middle ground. We only talk about, 'How do we protect the rights of those who commit a crime?; How about start talking about, 'How do we protect the rights of people who are doing the right thing?'"

Wtf does this even mean? If you're doing the right thing, your rights could only be put in to jeopardy by shiatty cops.

The police actions at this shooting seem to prove more than anything else, police are too localized and held to insufficiently high standards. Especially in highly populated states like Texas. Make 'em employees of the state, not municipalities. Give 'em uniform training. And for god's sakes, keep employment records so they don't get fired for shiatty policing and go to the next county to get a new job.

There will always be bullies taking jobs, but even doing things like making them no longer beholden to a county for ticket quotas to drive municipal revenue will give them more self-respect and encourage them to be better cops. Ask someone to demean themselves by doing dumb shiat like that, and they won't rise above that bar you set. Instead, elevate the bar, and then promote the ones that rise to the occasion.

/ I'm just ranting into the void, anyway.

"He's said police got the wrong message for eight years "

Hey shiatheel mayor:
The Maksim Gelman stabbing spree was 2011, 11 years ago. Your city.

The police standing by waiting for the dust the settle while you let the guy with the weapon keep hurting innocents is a time honored tradition.

When the guy who actually did stop the killer sued the police for standing there in the next car watching him get stabbed, attorneys for the City of New York argued that police had no duty to protect Lozito or any other person from Gelman (and won).

So you're ok with that "message" to the police?

At least in NY that guy was only able to get a knife, probably would have been able to kill off the whole subway car of people with a gun while the two cops cowered.
