New York Citys cops say the town is in trouble big trouble.
The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York commissioned a survey of 6000 of its members and their opinions are sharply at odds with the rosy picture being projected by Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio.
In part its findings were, The overall survey results show that members believe the relationship with the public and elected officials has worsened in the past few years, with a lack of support and respect for police officers the top reason cited. Members also expressed they personally feel 'less safe' while on duty and most agree that they are often reluctant to take police action for fear of lawsuits or complaints from the public.
The survey found:

No surprise after the way the communist treats them.
A merely bad mayor like Bloomberg isn't enough. Question now is where will they find the next Ed Koch or Rudi Giuliani to clean things up?
What? The union doesn’t like it’s Democrat masters?
So glad my brother retired when he did.
But he told me the horror stories. FN Democraps.
Big Bird lies
Rudy for life next election.
There's construction going on at one of the buildings on the grounds of the old Griffiss Air Base. Don't know what's going in there. There's a business park there as well, plus NORAD. The old air base runway is run by the county, and is now known as Oneida International Airport. Air Force planes still land for refueling, and maintenance.
The only other construction taking place is at the Rome campus of MVCC (Mohawk Valley Community College). It's just down the street from me. They're expanding existing buildings. Construction is expected to be finished in fall 2017.
NYC now called de Blasio World
As a NYC resident, I can attest that duh Blasio sucks. The fact that he is despised by the cops is the first good thing I’ve heard about him.
Granted, the cops aren’t quite as bad as some other city employees who routinely claim false disabilities, but when cops get caught, the rest of the them see nothing wrong with the practice.
I wonder how many retired NYPD Officers retire to Florida?
There are a lot of police officers that retire to Idaho.
One did! The other stayed.
It’s getting to the point where America looks like a train wreck and I really don’t want to rubberneck. With the uniparty, there is really no chance to stop it. It’s a one way road - down hill at brake neck speed.
You ain’t kidding.
The crime statistics are announced on the news almost every day right after the daily slashings, rapes, murder and robberies............... Its comical!
Substantially different. Our local police know that we, the average citizens, have their backs in my town.
