Police unions

The bill was written at the behest of revanchist interests, and it was passed into law over the objections of legislators, civil liberties groups, and law enforcement officials.
"I was just like, 'You're making a mistake. That's not me. I wasn't there.'"
Bill de Blasio announced today a new contract agreement with the Sergeants Benevolent Association, a move that might be regarded as an effort to patch severely damaged relations with the NYPD.
“Simply put, signing this bill righted a wrong.”
The NY Times has had just about enough of all this insubordination.
"We no longer have confidence in Mayor de Blasio, nor in his ability to lead New York City and promote the values that both the NYPD and the good law abiding citizens of the city hold dear."
Bratton said, "Can you point out to me, one mayor who hasn't been battling with the police unions in last 50 years? Name one. Name one."
