Spoiled brats not allowed to abuse others are having a tantrum. I think they are doing it because they know their own methods and feelings and know that if they stay on the force they would be up on charges. They have gotten away with it so far and now are getting out while they can. Hugs
Explaining the mass retirement, Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch recently said, “[NYPD officers] at their breaking point, whether they have 20 years on the job or only two. We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’ And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”
Wrong, people do not want no law enforcement at all, they just don’t want thugs breaking the law to harass and kill them. If you have to be a militarized force above the law and using your gun and badge to harm the people then we don’t want you, please quit and retire. You are not police, your thugs. It is clear the mind set of the police that the talk of reform is so upsetting to them. They are not saying OK lets make it better for everyone, they are demanding no change at all. No change from their abuses, no change from their killing people, no change from their absolute authority. That is not a civil society, not a democracy, that is an occupied population ruled over by gang thugs to keep them inline.
Two flyers being passed around by officers state, “NYPD cops will strike on July 4th to let the city have their independence without cops… The people and this city doesn’t honor us, why honor them?” The images provide instructions for a sickout, a form of labor protest that encourages workers to simultaneously call in sick to work, depriving a facility of its ability to operate.
Any that do that should either provide a doctors note or be fired. When I worked for the hospital you couldn’t call in sick on a holiday and return to work with out a doctor verifying you had an illness. Plus any such sick days on holidays went against your evaluations.
“People have had enough and no longer feel it’s worth risking their personal well-being for a thankless position,” he said. “There is no leadership, no direction, no training for new policies. Department brass is paralyzed (and) too afraid to uphold their sworn oath in fear of losing their jobs. Sadly, the people of this city will soon experience what New York City was like in the 1980s.”
It is a myth that policing is a dangerous job. It is not even in the top ten. I looked at a dozen sites and as for the rank of danger the job presents the most dangerous I could find was 14. On many lists of 25 it was left off. Most policing is 99% routine and boredom with only 1% pure adrenaline spike. So to preach, teach, and drill cops to have a constant fear for their safety and to view every situation as they will die is what is causing all these abuse and unwarranted deaths. It is criminal to teach police this way. It incentives the warrior mentality instead of the helpful problem solver mentality. Hugs
