If you don’t know by now, police throughout the United States are on some bullshit. However, if the NYPD is an example, the bullshit they’re on is forced on them from the top down. Back in March, several NYPD officers of color sat down with NBC New York to discuss how the top brass in the department forced officers to fulfill unlawful quotas, or treat them like shit.
According to NBC, in 2010, the state of New York banned the practice of police quotas. However, according to these officers (who have filed a lawsuit against the NYPD), Commissioner Bill Bratton still directs his units to round up as many people as they can for whatever reason they can conjure up. They describe the orders to go “hunting” for more “vulnerable” groups (i.e. Blacks, Hispanic, LGBT, etc.)
