    I agree, except in the case of garner. You had a cop with 4 incidents, including a settlement in less than 2 years for excessive force, put a modified lapel choke on an obese dude for suspicion of selling single cigarettes, and a lackluster emt response at best. this is a case one can get behind showing the police in general need reform.

    The problem must be those 50% of beat officers who are white, in a 37% white city. Fire all the white police. Make them 100% minority. That'd solve everything.

    What we need here is a post from several NYC police, giving their input with their identity unknown..
    So tempting that 10 to 20% of the police be laid off .. their numbers may be too great ..

    In their hatred of police, some on the left has found the problem and the solution!

    Damn parking meters, crosswalks and stop lights. All those picky misdemeanor and regulatory rules should be eliminated.

    TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT!
    TOO MANY REGULATIONS!
    TOO MANY LAWS!

    Roll government WAY back. Eliminate 90% of regulations and rules. Lay off over half of all government employees and staff. Radically cut taxes.

    A NEW liberal agenda. That's got my vote!

    I know right, then you have the other extreme calling for more government, more laws, and enforcment of victimless crimes... it's a strange world we live in. lol

    We disagree and you have no better system to suggest do you? You just have this general feeling, without the entirety of the facts in any of those cases, that something "unfair" went on. That translates in your mind to misconduct.

    The cops can't do anything about the EMTs and what happened to the cop who violated department policy?

    Not enough if you ask me. Palenteno was called an "eagle scout", yet he has 4 excessive force complaints including one where the nypd paid out 30 grand.


    Why was he still employed?

    Yeah, except those mentioned are LOCAL ordinances and law. Now, do that with the federal government and you might have something.

    Dunno, doesn't NYC have a Citizen Review Board? His history may not be as characterized for those who had all the facts.
