CIVIL RIGHTS
During the Republican National Convention, Bloomberg authorized illegal mass arrests through the use of orange nets. Many of the arrested were completely innocent. Bloomberg said, "This isn't something like it's supposed to be a fair fight. We have laws." Bloomberg added, "You break the law [and] you're going to find yourself arrested. Period. End of story." Bloomberg's methods were widely criticized by the New York Civil Liberties Union.
