Electing a communist mayor has consequences and those consequences are NOT good…NYC is toast.
NYC 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 new policy was laid out in a May 14 memo obtained by The Post that scolded police bosses for busting people outside the 18-40 demographic — and demanded written explanations for arrests of midlife perps.
Division commanders who got that memo immediately ordered the rank and file to stop making collars in that age group and threatened officers with transfers and other discipline if they did not comply, according to multiple police sources.
Don’t blame the cops. Blame those who voted de Blasio into office.
Commanding officers vented about the directive at a Friday meeting with [Assistant Chief Brian] McCarthy at One Police Plaza, according to sources.
“You’re telling us not to lock these people up,” one of the officers said. “However, the people over 40, they could be your burglars, they could be responsible for car break-ins, they could be responsible for robberies.”
McCarthy allegedly responded, “I’m glad you brought that up, but [the bosses] don’t give a s–t.”
Gasps a veteran source:
“I’m blindsided by this. I don’t even know what to say. We’re letting criminals go. Crime is going to skyrocket.”
Murder already is under de Blasio’s criminal-friendly leftist rule.
Come back tomorrow, to see if they have stopped arresting drug dealers altogether — or next week, to see if muggers are getting a pass.
Just don’t try selling coffee or an order of sweet and sour pork in a Styrofoam container. After July 1, the NYPD will come down on you like a ton of bricks.
Under anarchotyranny, the police are more prevalent than ever. They just don’t do anything useful.
