What Happened to the NYPD?
After 9/11 there was not a more respected police force in America then the NYPD. Now 10 years later, that respect is beginning to unravel. As I write this more than one dozen officers are turning themselves in an apparent ticket fixing scandal. There is also speculation that there may be drug charges coming against officers as well. People should be getting indicted, not cops. I know that the police keep us safe but that is why this is so disappointing. Cops have to hold themselves to higher standards and it is discouraging to hear about stories like this. With trust of the police at an all time low, this is exactly the wrong thing the NYPD and police officers in general need. So let's tighten it up NYPD and get back to doing what you do best, keeping the streets safe.
