Here it is, the "stop and frisk" receipt that NYPD will be required to give to everyone they have a police interaction with:
You can bet ours won't be nearly so simple, seeing how it was written in conjunction with ACLU lawyers and Department pinheads. From the accompanying article:
- The NYPD has formally introduced the “receipt” cops will now be required to issue to anyone they question during street stops, the Daily News has learned.
Patrick Lynch, head of the largest NYPD union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, called the new paperwork “another nail in the coffin of proactive policing” and predicted a rise in retaliatory complaints against cops.
“Instead of improving community relations, these receipts will accelerate an increase in crime and disorder, which will damage the city’s economic health while hurting those crime-ridden communities who need our protection the most," Lynch said.
How bad will it affect policing in New York?
- Street stops reached a record high of nearly 700,000 in 2011 but are on a pace for about 42,000 this year.
We expect similar reductions in contacts here, along with the accompanying rise in mayhem that New York is experiencing now, too.
