CARROLL GARDENS An NYPD commander is using Twitter to distribute the names and mugshots of convicts recently returned to his neighborhood after serving prison sentences and his actions could result in a lawsuit.
Capt. Jeffrey Schiff, commanding officer of the 76th Precinct, which covers Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and part of Gowanus, said his goal is to protect his community and keep residents safe.

We can publish the names of law-abiding citizens but we can't publish the names of felons released from prison? The liberals are hypocrites.
Of course. That’s Liberal Law didn’t you know?
I hope that this important detail comes out big.
what part of Fun City is that?
Gee, where’s the “Legal Aid” suit coming for those gun owners? ACLU? WTF?
A very expensive, gentrified part of Brooklyn that borders several housing projects.
Love it! I live in Zone 21, which covers the 72nd, 76th and 78th precincts. I listen to my radio scanner all the time and there are constant issues with the PJs in and around the 76th. Lots of domestic violence, strongarm robberies and regular assaults. Thank God someone is posting photos of people to avoid!
I say if a convicted felon is striped of his rights then
he/she has no rights at all. If there is no way to fully
reinstate all of a felons rights then he/she should be
considered to have no rights at all and be treated as
such. No matter how harsh the sentence or how well you
paid your debt to society you should never, ever be
considered a citizen with rights protected by law.
Unless you intend to be a carer criminal. Then you get
special rights and protections that law abiding citizens
With the increase in tax burdens on everyday society ,
you will see an increase in inmate releases.
Initially , it will be alledged ‘non-violent felons’,
then you will see increasingly more violent felons released.
Then , the streets will be even less safe than they are now.
