Here’s an interesting thread, courtesy of civil rights attorney Scott Hechinger: https://twitter.com/ScottHech/status/1482869672038985728?cxt=HHwWgMCroYaHm5QpAAAA
As it stands, people are inclined to believe police accounts of things unquestioningly, and they’re exploiting that. In this thread, Hechinger discusses how the NYPD is now refusing to investigate or take reports on violent robberies and lying that “our hands our tied” by police and bail reform so that the business lobby pushes to undo those reforms. He then goes over what the bail reform and the prosecutor’s memo ACTUALLY say, and why the NYPD’s hands are NOT tied when it comes to robberies. He lastly quote tweets examples from the replies showing cops all over the US doing the same.
Nationwide, cops are effectively going on a soft strike until they get their impunity back.
