“...but it does far more far more right than the Citys electorate deserves...”
My surprise is not so much at the NYPD, but at the fact that the politically-correct morons that run the city aren’t losing what little is left of their minds over the fact of it.
Or if they tacitly and quietly approved it.
Or did the NYPD just go ahead and do this on their own?
NYC government is a strange mix. Yes, there’s the corruption and the goofiness too. But underneath it all there is a pretty high standard (for government) of effectiveness and making things work.
At least there has been from Giuliani through Bloomberg.
