An LA cop warns that it might well happen....
"Jack Dunphy" is an LA cop who has for more than a decade written under that pseudonym, with very many politically incorrect insights that have proven prophetic.
JD's take on New York City under Mayor diBlasio & top cop William Bratton warns that dystopia is just around the corner.
Put simply, with the diBalsio administration dropping an appeal of a federal judge's ruling "stop-and-frisk" unconstitutional--an appeal the city was virtually certain to win--and with top cop Bratton a man who puts making himself looking good above all else--JD's appraisal having worked under him in LA--the city is already seeing unsettling signs of a return to pre-Giuliani/Bloomberg crime reduction days. Shootings are up and low-level criminality is once again being ignored.
Bottom Line. Visiting NYC soon? Follow the famous line (0:09) of Sgt. Joe Esterhaus from the 1980s tv hit "Hill Street Blues": "Hey,, let's be careful out there."
