If that's against the law, why isn't they ticket him or it? Maybe because they were jaywalking?

I jaywalk all the time but I don't expect cars to yield to me in the middle of the road.

They're clowns who obviously had nothing better to do.

Flushing-So like I said, you need to grow up, instead of flashing your close minded ignorance. Your arguments look weaker than my knees when I'm busting a nut.

There's that word "obviously" again... It's interesting when people throw that word around knowing full well that they have no idea what was going on and are just assuming. The shame of it is that the majority of the time when words like "obviously" are used, they are thrown around randomly.

Answer me this: in your mind, you're telling us that you see absolutely no probability that they may have been crossing the street to answer a call? Or maybe they were footpost cops who were sent to check out cars on the block or were walking to the next avenue to answer a call? None of this is even remotely possible correct? Because they were "obviously" doing nothing but crossing the street to see if your friend would give them the chance to harass him.

If any of what I mentioned above is even a remote possibility in your head, then you should realize that using the word "obviously" just makes you seem like a person who responds emotionally when confronted with a decision making point, rather than analyzing information to arrive at possibilities. Without all of the relevant information, one can only determine possibilities.

I expect car to yield, even when I'm jaywalking. I sure don't expect them to speed up and try to run me over.

I also yield when people are in the middle of the street. I don't press on the gas pedal, trying to win.

I'm white too, but also depends how you look like. I used to be harassed solely because of how I dressed.

They dont prevent crime, AT ALL. It is IMPOSSIBLE to PREVENT crime for the simple fact that a crime isnt a crime until a law is broken which means that the crime has already occurred.
Before I can even get into how many ways I could prove you wrong on every post you ever made about the NYPD, I will only go on about the point I bolded above.

If you had ANY clue about how the NYPD works, as opposed to just some biased opinion, you would know that they are NOT ALLOWED to work in the same precinct they live in. There is a good reason for this. Main one being so that they don't end up having to deal with possible conflicts with people they know. If you find your neighbor or family member in trouble, you would be hesitant to arrest them. Not to mention, before they graduate the academy, they have to choose 3 areas they want to work in. The higher ups then decides where they go. They only choose themselves when they have enough tenure. Or if they go into IAB.

Try knowing the facts for once instead of believing the hyped up media. If you think everything you read on the internet and the newspapers is true, then I have a bridge to sell you.

Good point, and I will also add that most of them DO live in the communities they police. Like Miss said, they don't live in the precinct they work in for the above reasons, but they usually live within the same borough.

. Tell me, how did Officer Richard Haste, who fatally shot an unarmed teen named Ramarley Graham in the bathroom of his Bronx home earlier this year, get assigned to the NYPD’s 36 Street Narcotics Enforcement Units yet he has NO narcotics training?


By the way, send that bridge to me as soon as possible.

Simple.

Narcotics is a division within the NYPD. If you do well enough (or do your 2 years in IAB) then you can pretty much pick and choose what division you go into. There are cops in the media division that have never been in media or have a background in it. It's a division, nothing more. Now if he was working for the DEA, that's a different story.

And yes, I proved my point on the not being able to work and live in the same area argument, because your ignorance was showing on the issue. Don't try to tout things as fact when you clearly don't even know about it.
