Let’s blame Mark Zuckerberg for this one: Without Facebook, how would members of the NYPD be able, allegedly, to post derogatory comments about September’s West Indian Parade and have the words live on the Internet forever?
“Let them kill each other,” wrote someone identifying himself as an officer on a page called “No More West Indian Day Parade Detail,” where cops allegedly gathered and used their real names and job titles without bothering with the Internet privacy settings.
““I say have the parade one more year and when they all gather drop a bomb and wipe them all out,” wrote another supposed NYPD employee.
Ray Kelly is not exactly a populist favorite right now, but then again, when are police commissioners ever considered to be working on behalf of the working class? (Besides Law & Order, and also Batman.) But Commissioner Kelly has it especially tough right now–particularly with students and journalists and civil rights groups.
That’s probably why NYU student and activist Matthew Swaye took time out Tuesday night to honor Commissioner Kelly for all the hard work he’s done with NYPD’s new “stop-and-frisk anyone looking suspicious” policy. He was also shouting, “Thank you for keeping the city safe for white heterosexual males.”
