New York Considering Legal Action Against Police
[su_right_ad]If the police slowdown continues, New York City may take legal action against the police.
CBS2 has been reporting on the dramatic drop in the number of parking and traffic violations, and on Thursday political reporter Marcia Kramer learned that Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration is weighing all of its options…
…new and troubling crime statistics have city officials on high alert, watching to see if there is a work stoppage going on.
In the two weeks that ended Sunday, there was a 70 percent drop in DWI arrests, a nearly 96 percent drop in arrests for incidents in the subways, and nearly 80 percent fewer arrests on housing development property, Kramer reported.
And that’s in addition to the plummeting number of tickets written for parking and traffic violations.
City sources told Kramer if those numbers continue and there is clear evidence of a slowdown, “corrective” actions will be taken. Possible sanctions could involve administrative actions by NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton or even invoking the Taylor Law, with its threats of fines and penalties.
