That mentality honestly makes me ill. It's not too different from mafia tactics. de Blasio, instead of meeting with union leaders and trying to work out a way to pacify the cops into doing their jobs, should be going to the people to determine what to do about an extorting, plainly obvious corrupt, police department.
While Mayor Bill de Blasio was personally coaxing the city’s police union presidents to meet with him, his top aides were on the phones with lawmakers urging them to blast PBA President Patrick Lynch and other officers for turning their backs on the mayor following the assassinations of two of New York’s Finest, DNAinfo New York has learned.
City Hall wanted me to blast the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association for turning their backs on him,” a Big Apple legislator told “On The Inside.” “They called up Monday, said they were calling all of us, and that it was our obligation to stand up defending the mayor.”

As long as politicians create the laws that they mandate the police enforce? I would love to see the police "stand down"! Let those of the PC crowd realize what humanity is and can be without those who act as enforcers to protect them! Hell, just look at the lawlessness of the protestors of late! They don't give a damn about blocking a highway and preventing other citizens from freely traveling. Nope! All they care about is their opinion and mind controlled actions courtesy of the government and MSM!

I agree, I would like to see the stastics for violent crimes that are happening during this time frame. Not just murder, but for battery, domestic violence, assaults, rape, kidnapping, extortion, and other crimes that are normally stopped by the police. I wonder if there is an increase in said crimes while arrests are done.

See, to me, this entire story is a testament to the fact that 90% of arrests made are unnecessary.
All these cop actions down 80-90%, and new york is still standing. No riots. No mass looting. No complete takeover by the criminal element.
The NYPD is too stupid to realize it, but they are proving that they are not as invaluable as they claim.
Ive said it for a long time: the minute law enforcement became about budgets and revenue, the culture of law enforcement changed with it.
most police find the revenue stream they create to be necessary to their well being and pension.
Im not saying cops arent necessary. Im saying the sheer abundance of them as well as the claims of needing more funding and weapons and mraps and yadayadayada are being proven to be bunk, and they are too stupid to realize that they are the ones proving it.
agree with your point though that a very large % of what they do is unnecessary but there will always be a need for a certain amount of peace keepers.
