"[A]ny non-published internal version of that same database could reveal a great deal about the numbers of unresolved, unsubstantiated, or abandoned misconduct complaints that have yet to see the light of day."
“By no means has the NYPD entered a new era of transparency by disclosing only those misconduct complaints that they themselves deemed worthy of prosecution."
“You need to film as much as possible while keeping the privacy of others as safe as possible,” an NYCLU organizer recommended to protesters.
Advocates say police bias against transgender people, especially people of color, is pervasive.
"We have policy makers that weren't privy to this info either. That's a real failing."
"The release of this database is an important step towards greater transparency and accountability and is just the beginning of unraveling the monopoly the NYPD holds on public information and officer discipline."
The restraining order is in effect until at least August 18th.
The delay seemingly stems in part from errors made by attorneys for the city's Law Department.
"When you look at the history of stop activity in the NYPD, even though they've come way, way, down from the highs of the Bloomberg years, these numbers are not believable.”
To get ready, the NYPD started spying on protesters a year before the convention!
Officers charged a transgender woman in the Bronx with identity theft after handcuffing her to a cell overnight, and subjecting her to sustained harassment, according to a lawsuit.
The NYPD says it'll be used for things like search & rescue missions, crime scene documentation, and large gatherings, but the NYCLU wonders what defines large gatherings and how long the data will be retained.
