I’m not entirely sure on what planet this makes sense. It appears that NYC police officers are being told not to arrest anyone over 40, because…reasons?
The city’s narcotics cops are being told to stop arresting suspects over the age of 40 — a major strategy shift designed to target younger dealers, who are more likely to carry guns and use them, The Post has learned.
Top brass issued a directive that makes it all but impossible for cops to bust older drug suspects, in order to combat a spike in shootings — which are up 7 percent in 2015 compared with the same period last year and 12 percent over the last four weeks, police sources said.
Officers are allegedly being threatened with transfers and/or worse if they don’t comply. Welcome to DeBlasio’s NYC.
