How do you figure that the MSM would be so interested in proof of police quotas and underreporting of serious crimes in poor minority neighborhoods in
order to pad stats? The hard proof is key and better than any I have seen in the past, but it's kind of a "dog bites man" story in NYC - the
allegations have been around since Giuliani's re-election in '97... and quite enough of us have personally been frisked, questioned, given bull#
tickets and summonses, etc.
Twice in the last 10 years I personally have been stopped and ticketed for breaking the NYC Parks Dept. curfew of 1 AM... BEFORE 1 AM and had the case
thrown out. Cops would not be at checkpoints giving these tickets at 12:15 and 12:25 AM to people just walking home through the park, if they weren't
under pressure to issue tickets by any means possible. It sadly isn't that new or surprising.
BTW, much thanks to the person who posted the Corporate Avenger vid earlier in the thread for introducing me to a great band.
