My wife told me about this yesterday and I was laughing out loud before she could tell me that is was immediately failed to have the desired response.

How ridiculous are they: they abuse, stomp mudholes, violate the 2nd and 4th amendment on a regular basis, act like sociopaths while rarely being held accountable and now they requested the general public to post friendly “selfies?” What a bunch of stoopid shitheads these copfuks are…

Well, the #MyNYPD hashtag sure backfired quickly

For another case study in the perils of using Twitter for branding, look no further than the #myNYPD hashtag that is now trending for all the wrong reasons in the New York City area.

What started out as an attempt to solicit pent-up good feelings among the New York Police Department’s constituents is turning out to be a troll-fest of epic proportions.

One by one, hundreds of tweets with photos of what the tweeters suggest is police brutality or misbehavior are being sent out with the hashtag #MyNYPD. No good can come from this, but as US Airways and others have learned recently, its hard to take back a tweet.

  1. More from the gang that can’t shoot straight. Now they are picking on each other.

    On Duty Cop Charged With DWI After Shooting Partner
    Two NYPD detectives. partners at the 75th Precinct in New York City have lots of explaining to do especially Det. Jay Poggi, a 31 year veteran. According to court documents, Poggi, 57, accidentally shot his partner in the wrist, while intoxicated early Thursday morning.

      • According to a 2008 RAND Corporation study evaluating the New York Police Department’s firearm training, between 1998 and 2006, the average hit rate during gunfights was just 18 percent. When suspects did not return fire, police officers hit their targets 30 percent of the time.

        Aug. 25, 2012- NEW YORK – All nine people wounded during a dramatic confrontation between police and a gunman outside the Empire State Building were struck by bullets fired by the two officers, police said Saturday, citing ballistics evidence.

        The veteran patrolmen who opened fire on the suit-wearing gunman, Jeffrey Johnson, had only an instant to react when he whirled and pointed a .45-caliber pistol as they approached him from behind on a busy sidewalk.

        Officer Craig Matthews shot seven times. Officer Robert Sinishtaj fired nine times, police said. Neither had ever fired their weapons before on a patrol.

        The volley of gunfire felled Johnson in just a few seconds and left nine other people bleeding on the sidewalk.

        Sept 14, 2013 – Two bystanders struck by NYPD cops opening fire on suspect near Times Square
        The 35-year-old man police were aiming for had ‘simulated’ a gun with his hands, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. Two women, ages 54 and 35, were struck by bullets, while the suspect was unarmed when he was taken into custody. NYPD’s logic – “The defendant is the one that created the situation that injured innocent bystanders,” said an assistant … Police Department (NYC).

        The Shooting of Amadou Diallo occurred on February 4, 1999, when Amadou Diallo, a 23-year-old immigrant from Guinea, was shot and killed by four New York City Police Department plain-clothed officers: Sean Carroll, Richard Murphy, Edward McMellon and Kenneth Boss, who fired a combined total of 41 shots, 19 of which struck Diallo, outside his apartment at 1157 Wheeler Avenue in the Soundview section of The Bronx.

        The Most Horrific #myNYPD Images on Twitter

        Personally I am taking N.Y. city off my vacation itinerary. Too damn dangerous.

  2. Couldn’t be happier how this turned out, I just hope it spreads far and wide enough that even Clover might re-evaluate what cops really are: the occupying army of the PTB.

  3. “The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.”

    I completely disagree with this statement. Preventing crime MUST be accomplished through intimidation and preemptive “pre-crime” intervention. Preventative policing entails giving officers power to judge the INTENTIONS of the innocent and intervene in their lives before any crime has been committed.

    Until I’ve committed a crime, leave me the hell alone. Then, if I do happen to commit a crime, you may arrest me and bring me before a jury of my peers so that I may defend myself. Preventative policing leads to liberty crushing policies like “stop and frisk”, roadside sobriety checkpoints, TSA groping, etc… where guilt is presumed.

    Also, stopping a crime in progress is not part of the duty of an officer. Heroes don’t require getting paid for their heroism. If you choose to heroically intervene while a crime is being committed, you are no longer acting in the capacity of a police officer, but an ordinary citizen “good Samaritan”. You should be granted no more use of force rights than me if I was to intervene as a citizen and your testimony as a witness should carry no more weight than mine.

    Cops have too much power and sway, and thanks to the advancements of technology putting a video recorder on every phone, we are seeing over and over what happens when you give a person too much power. They abuse it.

    • Crime is prevented by a strong and healthy society.
      There is no money in power for the institution of government and a tiny ruling elite when society is strong and healthy.

      This is why the powers that be do everything they can to make society sick and weak, which results in poverty and crime. Which then empowers the state.

  4. After escaping California (LAPD) Commissioner Bratton is finally going to earn his paycheck and put up or shut up.

    In my long police career I have often drawn inspiration from a great hero of mine, Sir Robert Peel. Peel founded the London Metropolitan Police in 1829. He went on to serve as British Prime Minister for two separate terms and earned a reputation as a powerful and effective reformer.

    In addition to establishing London’s first modern, disciplined police force, Peel articulated “nine principles of policing which remain as relevant and meaningful today as they were in the 1830s. The man had an innate grasp of the challenges police officers face and of the complex interplay between the police and the public that is at the very heart of policing in a free society. Defining the basic mission of police as prevention, recognizing that police must win public approval, favoring persuasion and warning over force, and defining success as the absence of crime and disorder rather than in terms of police action — these were all cutting edge ideas in the 1980s let alone the 1830s.

    Peel’s nine principles inform the vision of collaborative policing that I believe is essential to healing the divisions that exist between the police and the communities we serve. They will guide us in our efforts to foster shared responsibility for public safety as we move forward:

    Principle 1 – “The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.”

    Principle 2 – “The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon public approval of police actions.”

    Principle 3 – “Police must secure the willing co-operation of the public in voluntary observance of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public.”

    Principle 4 – “The degree of co-operation of the public that can be secured diminishes proportionately to the necessity of the use of physical force.”

    Principle 5 – “Police seek and preserve public favor not by catering to the public opinion but by constantly demonstrating absolute impartial service to the law.”

    Principle 6 – “Police use physical force to the extent necessary to secure observance of the law or to restore order only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient.”

    Principle 7 – “Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

    Principle 8 – “Police should always direct their action strictly towards their functions and never appear to usurp the powers of the judiciary.”

    Principle 9 – “The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it.”

    Guided by such values and with the help of all New Yorkers and the best efforts of the men and women of the New York City Police Department, I am confident of our success.
