  1. The NYPD is notoriously known for doing things their way without any consideration of the bill of rights in the US constitution, which they are sworn to protect.There was incident a few months ago where a NYPD police officer chased a 17-year old drug suspect back to his house and then entered inside without a warrant, and shot him as he was trying to dispose of the drugs in the toilet of his home. Also, the NYPD has the ability to spy on other people in other states, in which they don’t have any jurisdiction.

  2. Liberty and Truth will emerge victorious, it will take time, pain and suffering. The NYPD are the same as all other western police, militarised boot boys in black. I could wax lyrical but wont.

    I have had experience of London’s finest at many levels over many years. They are rather akin to an exclusive club. One that kills innocents and seems to expect to get away with it. One that terrorises and hides behind dubious “laws”, which they do not understand.

    Well, as present investigations into police corruption at all levels go on. We must ask ourselves what do we expect? The sight of an NYPD officer spraying pepper over peaceful demonstrators has stuck in many English minds. Rather akin to pictures from Abu Gharib and Lindsey Lohan.

    They are not “peace officers”, they are bullies with guns and other lethal toys, along with an increasing arrogance to use them to terrorise.
    We all know what happens to bully boys in the end 🙂
