Warning to Progressive leaders: NYPD cops say they won’t go above and beyond the call of duty over ‘stop-frisk’ lawsuit risks

This is what progressives bring to the safest big city in America-increased crime!stop and stare

People can see how these Liberal policies are not working out in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.Nonetheless, the Democrat candidates for mayor and an out-of-control-progressive-dominated City Council are demanding New Yorkers copy a crime fighting model doesn’t work ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY!

“If someone gets raped and says it was a black male, I’m going to be handicapped to stop someone because I could get sued for racial profiling. So now I’m just going to take reports,” the cop said.

“Perps on the street are saying, ‘If they’re not going to stop me, I’m going to start carrying [my gun] again.’ That’s the word on the street,” said one police source.

New York Post reports Nypd beat cops posted a police-union warning in every precinct yesterday instructing officers not to go above and beyond the call of duty – or risk losing their jobs because of the new stop-and-frisk laws, The Post has learned.

“All officers should take action if he or she sees a crime in progress, or if he or she sees that his or her life or the life of another person is in danger . . . [But] all officers should be careful not to initiate any law-enforcement action that could be construed as violating the new legislation and subject the officer to legal action,” read the memo by Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch.

Several rank-and-file cops said yesterday that they plan on following Lynch’s advice rather than risk their careers.

“We are being told not to look for perpetrators of crimes because then we are opening ourselves up to a lawsuit and the job isn’t going to represent us,” a police source said.

“Crime is about to skyrocket. We are going to show up and take reports. This was the safest city in the country . . . Now most crimes will go unsolved.”

Another source added: “These rookies are just getting on the job out of college. They’re not going to risk their pensions. Arrests are going to drop, and crime’s going to soar.

“It really puts a wrench into law enforcement. They’re going to be second-guessing everything they do.”

Another cop agreed that fear of being sued will hinder investigations – even in rape cases.

“If someone gets raped and says it was a black male, I’m going to be handicapped to stop someone because I could get sued for racial profiling. So now I’m just going to take reports,” the cop said.

Even the bad guys have gotten the memo.

“Perps on the street are saying, ‘If they’re not going to stop me, I’m going to start carrying [my gun] again.’ That’s the word on the street,” said one police source.

“The number of stops is going to go way down, and crime is going to go way up. Shootings and murders are going to come back big time,” the source said.

“Now all these guys who weren’t carrying guns are going to carry again, because they know we can’t stop them. The first thing a perp is going to say is, ‘You can’t stop me, I’m going to sue you,’ a second source agreed.

As a lifelong NYC resident, I remember the high crime days under Mayor David Dinkins in which New York suffered with a murder rate that ran from 2,300 to 2,600 murders A YEAR!That’s the way the city used to be.

But, progressives gladly exchange the safety of all New Yorkers just to get votes from blacks and Hispanics who are trained to vote only Democrat!If this city votes in a Democrat mayor then the blood is on their hands.A vote for a Democrat is a vote for crime–pure and simple!
