    Sounds like an expensive cop to keep around. You would’ve thought they would be glad to get rid of him. I wonder what he will do next to cause the city to waste a bunch of money? What a waste. This is like a republican hangover.

    Whether, or not, the absolute numbers of racial bias in policing can be determined, it’s clear that there are more than enough examples to demand independent citizen’s oversight councils to research cops like him. These panels must have supoena powers and must have the full support of the local authorities. Until a thorough investigation happens, the police are tainted by the horrors of the actions of officers like Pantaleo and Darren Wilson.

    And yet all I hear is that there is no more racism in America. I’m sure that someone from Faux News will point out the 45+ white men he has brutalize. You can dazzle me with all the statistics you’d like but you’ll have a hard time convincing me that the country hasn’t taken a giant step backwards in racial equality over the past forty years.

            He stresses how he had to educate his son to be afraid of the police….that the police have a problem with people of color….

    Is it any wonder that NYC paid out $177,000,000 last year to cover law suits??

        I think you’right this would be an excellent way to get their attention – a stop gap measure.

        They never learn unless they get sued…..most are settled out of court but the final tallies are public record
