WOW!!! Arrests and citations by New York City police are down 90% because the crypto-fascist PBA leader Patrick Lynch (Namefreak alert!) dictated that only “essential” arrests would be made—this is in protest of the Mayor offering generous praise to the cops while noting that excessive police violence against African Americans (Sean Bell, Eric Garner and more) is real and must be addressed. Mild. OK, so Lynch orders cops to turn their backs on the Mayor and many do, and to only make essential arrests (90% reduction!). Clearly NY should lay off 90% of the cops right now to avoid frivolous arrests, and as Chris Rock tweeted, teach the cops to turn their backs when they see Black folks doing nothing.
