If this is true, it is truely monumental, and hopefully just the start!

More and more cops/military need to start standing up for whats right, and not whos paying you...

I thought by the headline the cops might have been protesting on the other side of the line, but they just refusing to show up, which is still a great step forward, Would be even better if they started protesting, and facing off against the other cops

So 100 police officers got fired because they agree with the protesters? And the next civil service test will be held at town hall next week? Hiring immediate NYPD positions?

That's how that would go down if true.

It's about time. I was beginning to wonder if any police officers still had hair on their sacks.

Police abuse of the citizenry is rampant and obviously these officers agree. Kudos to them, and may this have a snowball effect to other departments where the good cops stand up (finally!) and cross that thin blue line onto OUR side (where they should be.)

Thats exactly what I was thinking also, let face it, our police and military are after all working class, and when it comes to the police they are considered working poor.

Most of them are just people like us, friends, family members, that are having the same hardships as anybody Else in the nation that do not belong to the Uber rich class.

So are they done with the pepper spray? Just when you think you have the world figured out something like this happens. Let me know when the politicians join.
Ron Paul should be there. Actions speak louder then words.

You might be right. If I'm not mistaken, NYPD is union and I would think 100 officers not showing up for work would constitute a wildcat strike.


The U.S. 1932 Norris-La Guardia Act held that clauses in labor contracts barring employees from joining unions were not enforceable, thus granting employees the right to unionize regardless of their workplace situation. Unions have the power to bargain collectively on behalf of their members and to call for strikes demanding concessions from employers. Under the 1935 National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), federal courts have held that wildcat strikes are illegal and that employers may fire workers participating in them.

This is good, to a point.

Depending on how things go and if by chance the crowds start getting bigger and bigger. Those same officers will have to put their uniforms on and get back out there to stand by the citizens, or turn in their badge. If the police are to ever gain any credibility and trust with the citizens, then this is the time. As we can see from protests from around the world, things get chaotic and it will be these officers that will have to keep order as much as possible and if they have the trust of the citizens, their job will be so much easier. And as long as the citizens work and cooperate with the good cops then the police can do what they signed up for.

Heroes or villains.
We will be divided in our answer.
From this a war might be fought.
Or a bug beneath the heel.

I got a feeling the government will be saying "Don't let the door hit you on the way out!!!"

I think this is bad, once the ones with heart and courage get sacked it leaves only the cowards and jockstraps.

I highly doubt this is true. No news on it, mainstream, twitter, word of mouth, nothing. Asked a cop friend of mine whos nypd in bklyn and he said it was the first he heard of it.

If this is true, it's better that they just boycott rather than manifest a face-off with remaining police. We don't want another civil war here, just a peaceful transition/reclamation of our American constitution.
