Ferguson Effect - New York

  • Cops in some crime-ridden South Bronx neighborhoods have all but abandoned aggressive or intuitive policing — to avoid getting sued or otherwise derailing their careers, officers admitted to The Post.

    The dangerous hands-off approach in the NYPD’s 42nd Precinct is reflected in official crime statistics, which show that shootings are up dramatically there.

    “Usually, when you have people peddling hard drugs, you have guns nearby, inside a car or an apartment,’’ a precinct cop said.

    But instead of being “proactive’’ in such cases, “I try to minimize incidents where I can get in trouble,” the officer said.

    “It’s kind of sad, but it’s career preservation.”
And who is to blame?
  • Cops throughout the 42nd Precinct, which covers the Morrisania section, are steering clear of encounters that could land them in court or in front of the city’s Civilian Complaint Review Board for alleged brutality, a law-enforcement source said.

    “Police officers are afraid to do their job because they’re afraid of being sued and possibly arrested and prosecuted,’’ the source said. “Basically, the Bronx DA has made it open season on officers in the 42nd Precinct, emboldening perps to go out and commit these violent crimes.”
If you make enemies of your police, you better make friends with the criminals.

"If you make enemies of your police,

Is what happens when the un-satisfiable
are sufficiently politically weaponized
and allowed a "seat at the table" to
dictate Police operations and
Public Safety policy.

Just y'all wait for the other shitty
shoe to drop...

"We suin' cuz y'all refusin' to interact
with us thereby denyin' us Po-leece
service an' shit..."

Call it what it is.

They want "fubu" Policing.
For Us (Only) By Us (Only).

"Honkies, Conservatives and y'all other
'Free Thinkers' need not bother applying"

"Reparations or BUST!
De-fund da Po-leece an'
gives dey money to US!"

Let the "select" among THEM, patrol the
violent, hate-ridden shit piles
they breed and feed in.

The rest of everybody else will just
have to learn to ignore the screams.

It'll get quiet in under a generation.

Or they'll emerge from the ruins
waving anything passably white
trying to attract the attention
of civilized society after civilized
society has once and for all decided to move on...

Duly noted and passed along, SCC...

And yet New York's murder rate has continued to fall. I don't disagree with you, SCC. Yet it's pretty interesting how differently things have played out in different places. Yeah, the one precinct they're talking about has seen shootings and murders "skyrocket." But the increase was from 14 to 23 shootings and from 2 to 6 murders. Awful. But small enough that it's hard to know whether it's a statistical blip or a meaningful change.

Clearly Chicago's murder rate shot up exactly when proactive policing was killed off. And I believe that is cause and effect, though for some reason, no one will even touch that idea in local media.

I would argue that if you establish the monopoly on force first, as New York had, then you can use softer police tactics. Chicago not only never got the numbers down, we never got the clearance rate very high. They have a very high clearance rate, which implies substantial community cooperation. We never established any of the conditions under which one could soften tactics.

There is a reason Chicago has more shootings and murders than New York City and Los Angeles combined and that's a population 8 times that of our Chicago.

New York City has or had some institutions that are strongly anti crime and pro police.

New York City has

The Manhattan Institute (Antif and BlackLiesMatter riot on campuses where Manhattan Institute spokesmen are scheduled to speak)

The New York Post - populist Conservative (though Neo Conservative, Zionist in foreign policy, bad on immigration)

The last two mayors before this Santinista loving Lib coal burner mayor DeBlasio Mayor Bloomberg and Mayor Guliani were no nonsense about crime, backed the police in encounters with criminals, mau mauling Black demagogues like Rev. Al Sharpton.

There are so many good things in New York City that we need here. Practical people in positions of influence that can get things done.

Look at this gem from the NY Post:

"From the New York Post:

City offering to pay homeless a year’s worth of rent if they leave town

By Yoav Gonen September 29, 2017 | 9:04pm

The city wants the homeless to get out of town — and is offering to pay a full year’s rent to those willing to abandon the five boroughs.

Under a pilot program quietly launched last month, shelter residents who have been in the system for at least 90 days and have a source of income can get 12 months of rent paid up-front virtually anywhere they can find an apartment.

Their travel expenses to vamoose would also be paid under a program already in place known as Project Reconnect. …

In the past five years, the city has paid $1.2 million in travel expenses — the only expense that was previously covered — for 2,512 families who relocated outside the five boroughs. Last year, the top destinations were Florida, Puerto Rico and North Carolina, according to DHS."

You also need to take into account competency. Which starts from the top on down. For far too long piss poor shoddy Police work that fociused on Quantity over Quality. Clear ups to bring the numbers up when the prints came back to offenders that were incarcerated when the crime occurred. Locking up Juvys and piss bums so the commanders had numbers for the monthly meetings while burglaries and robberies were through the roof. Piss and moan all you want but the chickens have come home to roost and now you’re feeling the fallout of inept Malfeasance that was tolerated as the norm.
