Tactical analysis of police traps today

Luke from DC | The police traps that were used on us today were greatly facilitated by an environement containing mostly cops and protestors where teh pens were set and closed. While escaping(and negotiating final exit a block east), I noticed a total lack of open businesses to duck into and whose customers represent cover. more...  11 Comments

NYPD is also the working class

me | The NYPD IS WORKING WITHOUT A CONTRACT. They are not happy with Republicans either. As the Republican National Convention arrives in town, the police officers of the NYPD are engaged in a battle of epic proportions with the Mayor of the City of New York. As it stands, Mayor Bloomberg, the billionaire media mogul, has offered police officers a three year package that includes no wage increase for the first year and 4% over the remaining two years, or an average of a little over 1% a year. The zero offered would be the third zero increase for the NYPD officers in eight years. These proposed increases take on an even greater significance because the NYPD officers are already being paid upwards of 30% less than other police officers in the local area. I write to each of you to seek your assistance and support in this battle. Having witnessed a similar scenario play out in Boston, where under Tommy Nee’s leadership, Boston police officers were able to get out from under a horrendous offer to obtain a more favorable settlement, we understand that standing shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters from around the country will send a powerful message to the policymakers in New York City. You were there for us after the attack of September 11th, and we are forever grateful. We are asking now that you join us in New York City on August 30th & 31st, to protest a Mayor who devalues what we do and has no appreciation for the sacrifice we as law enforcement officers make each and every day. We currently plan to hold informational pickets, and other activities, at various locations around the City, generally designed to correspond with appearances by the Mayor. If you are able to join us in New York City on those days, kindly contact our office at (212) 298-9145. My office can assist you in obtaining accommodations in and around New York City. Only in unity will we prevail. more...  26 Comments
