Narco cops told to stop arresting those over 40


When I first caught this news, I thought it was something from The Onion. But apparently no. So all of you city dwellers, run do not walk to the nearest exit while you still can. New York City, the next Detroit in the making. Look for the ads to go up. Wanted. Pushers over the age of 40. What could go wrong. Here we go:

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.

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. More over at the New York Post

    Talk about convoluted logic! So people who have most likely been lifelong criminals catch a break, does this make any sense? Rhetorical question…

    “I know! I get the drugs and I have ol’ Hal down the street, who’s 50, sell ’em!”
    What am I missing? !!

      Geeez, I’m not there yet, but soon enough I’ll be 40 on top of 40. Ten years ago CFP’s were writing that one should plan to work ’til 70. I did to 71. Now they’re saying work ’til 80. So yeah maybe they creating job opportunities . Zeke Emanuel has other ideas though. 🙂

        yes, the young pusher gets the old guy to SELL, they all make money!!
        Maybe Obama’s got this in mind!? And, just think, this wouldn’t be a government project🙂 The pot smokers/heroin addicts would be paying for the old guy’s retirement!

        There you go! So Grandma died …doing a drug sentence. I’m thinking of BOTH of my grandmothers and trying to imagine them selling drugs, or doing drugs, right? What a hoot!

        I can’t imagine it either. Last car my grandmom had was a ’53 Ford two door, with post, you know not a coupe. Other grandmom never had a car and never drove (well so she said🙂 ) Always said after WWII she wanted to learn to drive a Jeep. Always good to wish for something. Never happened though.
        P.S. You heard about Nissan floorboards rusting out. Grandmom’s car did that, her brother a car mechanic put a old car tag plate over the hole and covered with a rubber mat. The more things change the more they stay the same. Oh hell, well it worked then, 🙂

    Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    I do not know how an Interim Order of that nature could ever be issued. The logical approach would suggest those over 40, may possibly require a trip to the hospital for existing medical conditions, and then the command is down two cops, babysitting. If admited, then around the clock guard while the subject is handcuffed to the gurney or bed, and until NYC Corrections takes over at the correctional ward. The biggest help, at times, was the Hospital Police, but who knows their workload. The illogical approach would suggest a new and happy social agenda of Giddy Bill (DeBlasio, A/K/A: Warren Wilhelm, a card carrying member of the American Communist Party). The City Council has not opposed anything, therefore, drug use is back on the upstroke. That means more arrests, more overtime, more horror stories every now and then.

      What about equal distribution of justice? How can anyone just decide what laws apply to a selected class?

        I got into big trouble repeatedly over that stuff, and found myself on Charges & Specifications, for disciplinary action to the point of being charged with Gross Insubordination & Mutiny. The adjudicator ruled, that management, has the right, and authority, to manage. A commissioner may, opt to change or modify any policy at any time, as does the mayor, and, the city council. Without any legal challenge, and in this case, I highly doubt any challenge or grievance, will be filed, the city corporation, simply turns a blind eye and deaf ear. But.., mark my words: That will only lead in the future to allegations of corruption, when cops make determinations on the street based upon a directive. Then the city cries about cops not working because no summon activity and, no revenue going into coffers subsequent to fine schedules in courts, because cops will be “winging it”, on their own, as a judgement call. It was joked after tours, in the locker room and barrooms, that we should carry a yellow flag in our back pocket, like the NFL. The real problem is serious, because it is political, and involves political correctness and kowtowing. It causes cops, to hate. After I retired, I sat along about six months, just to become human again. To this day, since 1998, I speak to very few people, because I continue to have a suspicion about people’s motives regarding many things in person. That will never go away. I always am on guard, because I feel that people are about to physically attack me. Why? Because too many mandate of the fifedom were in play, and I had little time to debate anything, with anyone, in most cases, on the street. Kick it up the chain of command, that’s why they get paid the big bucks, otherwise, you get labelled a loose cannon, or worse. I probably could have made it to Captain, but I was not an ass kissing politician of a cop. I was a gutter kid, who made it to the top when I passed the civil service open competetive exam and they gave me a shield. With that shield, then the gold shields, I helped people as best I could. Now, cops are in fear of supervisory retribution(s) for anything they might due that gets interpreted wrong. It starts at City Hall. That’s where the basket of rattle snakes belongs, should something go awry, due to this new style of policing.

        What a sad story and sorry to hear. I still don’t know how a it could be called a policy. The regime wants anarchy. Finish the police and that is what we will have. I wish you much peace.

        These New Yorkers, you know the ones who installed a card carrying commie in Gracie Mansion, have their heads so far up their ass will blame the police for the coming lawlessness and anarchy – is that redundant?- coming down the pike. The central planners in DC will be more than happy to step in and team up with the gangs to restore order with the populace sticking daisies in the barrels of their rifles in a show of thanks.

    For a true analysis of the spike in all criminal activity one needs to compare pre deBlasio crime with current crime. As he prepares to campaign for his next term as mayor, he should be a shoo-in, he is courting the over 40 criminal voting bloc. If I’m an under 40 drug dealer I’m getting a fake ID an an AARP card.
    A sad commentary on the world’s center of finance and commerce.

      Good point. Get fake I.D. and what can they do? Apparently you and I can connect the dots. Not so much the wizards running the cities.
