This past week saw New York City cops shift from symbolic protest—turning their backs on the mayor—to actually packing it up and not doing their jobs.
Local cops, already known not to be huge fans of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, are now openly disrespecting him after two of their own were executed by a lone gunman in Brooklyn.
On a cold Friday night in New York, about 50 people gathered to show their support for Gotham's finest, but it wasn't long before counter-protesters angry about police brutality arrived.
The NYPD did some recon in Missouri last week ahead of its own grand jury decision on police violence, expected any day now.
Crime rates are low and the new mayor is an outspoken progressive, so why is the NYPD going after graffiti artists like it's 1994?
