NYPD

NYPD arrests reportedly plummet following assassination of two officers - AOL.com

Usually I don't support job actions by police.  Police swear an oath to serve and protect the public.  That is important and it means that officers have to do their jobs, even when it is unpleasant.  Still, their agency has certain responsiblities too.

The City of New York and it's mayor have not been supportive of their police department in recent months.  If you want your police to do a good job, you have to support them.  Police need the backing of the city government and officials.

The Mayor has not been supportive of the police.  He has made statements that were inflammatory towards the police.  When police officers were killed in the line of duty, he had been siding with those protestors.  He has done a poor job of standing up for the police.  The police are even working without a contract and yet are still doing their jobs.  I support NYPD; that's what the SGT Says.
