After Rift Over Protests, N.Y.P.D. Pulls Out of Prosecutorsí Offices
NYT ^ | 06 15 2020 | Jan Ransom

Posted on 06/16/2020 7:39:50 AM PDT by yesthatjallen

A few hours after the Manhattan district attorney announced he would not prosecute some of the protesters who had been arrested during demonstrations against police brutality, the Police Department sent him a message: All the officers assigned to his office would be pulled off the job to help with crowd control.

The district attorneys in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens made similar decisions and received the same news.

Police Commissioner Dermot F. Shea said on Friday that the timing was unrelated to the prosecutors’ decisions. Resources were pulled from the entire department to cover the protests, he said.

But to some in the prosecutors’ offices, the episode was emblematic of a growing divide between the police and most of the city’s district attorneys over how to address public outrage about racial disparities that pervade the criminal justice system.

As thousands have taken to the streets in New York City to protest the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and more broadly, systemic racism in America, the city’s prosecutors have taken an increasingly liberal stance on issues of policing.

No bias in THIS article, is there?

Most modern lawyers are progressive.

They’ve been indoctrinated by the public schools and socialist universities.

Too bad each of the prosecutors office did not mysteriously burn to the ground just as the police left.

In Boston the MBTA ( subway / buses / ferry service ) announced they would no longer bus police to areas for crown control.

Waiting to see what blow back there will be against the MBTA. Should be interesting.

Every police protection detail to the various DA'S offices, the mayor, city council members etc should be pulled at once.
Further any and all 911 calls from these jokers for police should be ignored.

THAT right there is what we call a “BINGO!!!”
Especially, for that goofy communist, murderous, anti-semite mayor.

Wait a minute—there is systemic racism in America—against whites and Asians.

They call it “affirmative action”.

It is racism—discrimination against people based on their race.
