This blog was not started to be vindictive. It was started after a grave injustice was meted out at the hands of corrupt police and it was birthed to effect change and bring justice to those who have been denied any. There have been times that this journey has brought me to anger; not only on my account but on the account of those I report on, but that has not been the primary goal of this blog. Below is the primary goal : 80% of NYPD cops are “Hesitant to aggressively fight crime” because of repercussions from the citizens they are sworn to protect. This comes from a city that paid out over $68 million in fiscal year 2019 to settle abuse lawsuits against the NYPD. It is good to see that cameras, phones and concerned citizens are finally putting a stop to the unbridled and rampant abuse by one of the nations most notorious police Dept. I am hopeful that with continued vigilance this trend away from injustice and violence will continue.
More than half of NYPD officers wish they never joined the force, according to a large internal survey.
An internal New York Police Department survey of nearly 6,000 officers found that 56% of NYPD cops say they wouldn’t become a police officer if they had a chance to do it all over again, according to the New York Post.
When asked if they feel the public disrespects them, 46% of officers believed they are disrespected versus 42% who didn’t believe so. The officers were asked if the public distrusts them, and 44% agreed while 41% disagreed. There were 73% of police poll participants who said the public does not have a good relationship with the NYPD.
A whopping 80% of NYPD officers, detectives, sergeants, lieutenants, and captains are hesitant to aggressively fight crime because of the ramifications of criminal liability, being sued, or being unfairly disciplined.
“My retirement date is next month,” said a 20-year veteran of the force. “I can’t wait to run out of here.”
