Why Police Reform Advocates Say New York’s Police Secrecy Law Is Part Of The Problem

Section 50-A became law in the 1970s, in order to protect police from harassment by defense attorneys. But reporter Nick Pinto says the law has been expanded in the decades since, to shield information about allegations of police misconduct and any disciplinary actions taken against officers, from the public and the press. He says victims of alleged misconduct don’t know officers‘ track record and watchdog groups can’t hold departments like the NYPD accountable.

The NYPD is run by an illegal union, the Police Benevolent Association (PBA). Have the city stop empowering it by refusing to deduct their dues money from cop’s paychecks every pay period. And, ban union delegates from station houses.

The vast majority of protesters are peaceful. They are separate & distinct from the criminals who are opportunistically using this situation for their own purposes. Criminal activity & looting MUST stop. Not only is it illegal—it distracts from the point of the protests.

And with crime at historic lows, a growing number of people — including for the first time, some city council members — are now explicitly demanding that cities save money for much needed services by cutting police budgets.
