Who's Policing The Police?

Dear Editor;

Who's Policing The Police?

Dear Editor;

There are two groups of people in the United States of America; they are the members of law enforcement and suspects. The police in our great city treat our city streets as their own personal parking spot, immune from any parking ticket. Call the 100th precinct and tell them about an illegally parked car that belongs to a cop from another precinct. Good luck getting any action. But go to the deli on 129th street and double park for 10 minutes. The police want respect? From whom? Officers patrolling the boardwalk on bicycles, I can't wait to hear how many tickets they issue for illegal cycling on the boardwalk. And it must be perfectly legal to drive without seatbelt since New Yorks Finest never wears seatbelts. Disgruntled? You bet I am. Anti cop?
There is no such word. The people see everything, both good and bad. The
police deserve respect, but if you flaunt the power of the badge, and show disrespect to the community, even subtly, we remember.
