i just skimmed the article and im not sure what you are saying. the cops arent going to lose vacation or sick days. if they dont approve vacation the cops will file a grievance with the union and the union will sue for it. the city cant win this battle if the cops push back. the city politicians lack the political will to do so.

Here in Mass. everyone knows you shouldn't speed 2-3 days before the end of the month because cops need to make their quota of tickets given out.

Police can legitimately make fewer arrests if fewer acts were made to be illegal.

the most powerful groups politically that oppose legalization of drugs are law enforcement groups (police, corrections officers, judiciary, etc.). less things illegal, less need for them. people keep blaming the republicans but its really law enforcement.

Everyone profits off of crime, the police, lawyers, judges, prisons, politicians.

The real point is this. It's about the idiocy of the people (city leadership) who implied the police were racist in the way the dealt with the public are now the very ones who are crying for the police to resume those policies because it's hitting them directly in the pocketbook.

i.e. Please arrest more Blacks.

I know this is off-topic, but: It is interesting that a Congressman's "success" is sometimes guaged by how many laws he (or she) sponsored/passed; how about success based on laws repealed?!

i dont think the leadership complained that auto tickets were distributed in a racist manner. in a world that wasnt nuts, the police are basically demonstrating the NYPD is vastly overstaffed and the city could start mass layoffs based on their work slowdown. but the city isnt allowed to lay them off so they need the revenue to pay them.

Apparently they have to resume making arrests in Black neighborhoods or no transfers, vacation, time off, etc. What's being referred to a "slowdown". City is missing the revenue from the reduced policing. This from those responsible for gutting the policing in the first place.

Quotas are good and being encouraged again.

This would make a good episode of the Twilight Zone.
Only in the twilight zone of your mind. Gutting the police? And who did that exactly? But, based on your other posts, this is certainly in line with your ongoing narrative of nonsense. Too bad it has no basis in reality. But how would you know that when you're getting your info from the Daily Mail and post accordingly?
