Mayor: New NYPD oversight jeopardizes city safety

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says legislation passed by the City Council will make it more difficult for police officers to protect the city and continue to drive down crime.

The City Council today voted to create an outside watchdog for the nation’s biggest police department and make it easier for people to file profiling claims against it, overriding Bloomberg’s vetoes.

Proponents see the legislation as a check on a police force that’s come under scrutiny for its heavy use of a tactic known as stop and frisk and its extensive surveillance of Muslims, which was revealed in stories by The Associated Press.

A federal judge recently ruled the New York Police Department discriminated against minorities with its stop and frisk program and ordered a monitor to oversee changes.

This is a greater plan to let the cockroaches destroy USA as in the middle east countries so there will just be the rich in palaces and the rest of the population fighting in the streets. Its working, normal and whites need to stick up for themselves and get rid of this. Contact your congress person and let them know! By The Thousands get busy
