NYT Article: In Naming Top Police Official, De Blasio May Signal Change
Here is my comment at 8:49PM -- let's see if it makes it past The NY Time Censors that often make me feel like I live in Communist China and not NYC, USA. I had to remove 2 paragraphs to make it acceptable for their word count.
"The NYPD fix crime like a Las Vegas Casino.
I know first hand as a victim of a violent crime at a doctor's office in Soho after I had cyst removed on my elbow with 2 numbing injections and 2 bags on my arm I became a human piñata for a receptionist/office manager and not fired or arrested. The NYPD involved coerced me to drop charges 19 days after the attack or go to jail for a weekend with a hole in retina and my neck in a brace!
The Public Advocate's office called Internal Affairs on my behalf and was told the case open but guess what? The lead detective that coerced me to drop charges has already had the case closed by -- try not to laugh -- "The Integrity Bureau" which I am told is where Internal Affairs send cases to die. Coercion is a crime
The NYPD met with my attacker but refused to meet with despite a video my attacker threatening me with bodily harm and repeatedly assaulting me after she repeatedly violated my patient rights.
Time for a new Commission in to NYPD and Internal Affairs and a new commish and head of internal affairs that will make ground breaking changes including stopping the retaliation against whistle blowers.
We get a new commission every 20 years. I called up the retired Honorable Judge Mollen and asked him how we get a new Commission in to Police corruption. Retired Honorable Judge Mollen told me he was appointed by the mayor. I don't believe Bill De Blasio will do so until the 2nd term but we need one asap."
