    Bratton says NYC Police are disproportionately non-black because the city has difficulties hiring black officers, because so many of them have felony convictions. :jj:

    and Bratton is serious about this: he publicly announced that the prohibition of hiring police officers with criminal records limits it's ability to recruit black police, and he doesn't seem to see anything wrong with this statement.

    It's just his opinion on how he sees things. I think he's entitled to speak his mind without worrying about how it's perceived.

    I wonder what the percentage is of African American applicants that get denied due to their criminal records. If it's more that 10% I think he's speaking the truth.

    Whats wrong with that statement? If blacks are committing disproportionately more crime and getting convicted for it are police supposed to just start ignoring it so that theyll have a larger pool of potential recruits?

    I hope he has stats to support that statement and if he does he should have included them.

    If it's true that a big percentage of black applicants have criminal records that preclude them from joining the force, I don't see anything wrong with saying this. If you're facing criticism as to why your police force does not represent the population of the city, and you have a legit reason as to why, those are just the facts. Ain't shit racist about that.

    Also: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONS

    Some departments also run a credit check which can lead to issues for many applicants as well.

    The community is all aggy over the statement: like he is exaggerating. Bratton says because of stop and frisk > 20% of the blacks have felony convictions.

    Maybe they have felony convictions because they were caught committing a felony? Would he prefer that we adopt his "Don't look Don't tell" policy? That way they will still be committing felonies. They just wont get caught and won't have the conviction on their records.

    Bratton doesn't answer that question.

    Very few jews are on the streets with illegal guns. and if we did, what would we do with them? mug black residents? whatever for? they don;t have anything. we don;t look good in those stupid sneakers, and those caps with the price tags still glued on.

    You know how expensive and hard to get ID's are?? That's why we can't require them to vote. @Bro
