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.

So there you have the 3 sides of this coin.

One group says that Police is brutal, and protests.

Police is saying we are upholding the laws and doing what we are told by the government. Police is outraged that they are getting a bad rap when they are doing what they told.

One of the worst.
No, quite the contrary. Fox is an actual major television broadcasting network, in fact, it's number 6.
The others are nothing more than online news-wannabes, filled with click-bait.

NYPD just make sure you arrest 35% White, 15% Asian, 25% Hispanic, 20% Black and 5% other or the DOJ will accuse you of Profiling by race.

There is no method for "repealing" a law without passing a new law to replace it (at least not through the legislature).

i.e. Please arrest more Blacks.
This is when you need a leader with the political will like Ronald Reagan.

LOL. Sure.

I would pretty much say that watching only a SINGLE source of news is pretty foolish. And I'm not sure why that is even relevant.

I did not understand this was about actual arrests, and I am not sure that they are substantially down from previous years for violent crimes and other things like robbery; but the slow down is lack of enforcement of citations that generate revenue for the city, and that's the beef, the city is now looking at a revenue shortfall because so few citations are being issued.

FYI, the Eric Garner arrest was about enforcing tax law on cigarettes, and the "arrest" would have led to fines (i.e. revenue!). Cops will do what the politicians require, but I personally don't know any that joined the police department to be a tax or revenue agent.
