Schenectady's Corporation Counsel John Van Norden said, "If you abolish the police department you still have a need - not an obligation - but a need to police the community. You would need something in transition. Declaring martial law would be one way to bridge the gap."




Ok, so I know this is only going down in a a small area of New York, but Schenectady is still a city of over 60,000 people and declaring martial law, even temporarily, seems an excessive solution to replace 5 bad officers.

Could this be a test market for other cities, perhaps larger ones?

yeah it seems like overkill, I'm interested to see if any more situations like this pop up.
