NYPD Reform PROP Stop and Frisk, Court and more Watch Video





Dear Friends:

Here is a brief update on PROP's work and policing issues in New York City:

At Best a Tweaking, at Worst a PR Dodge

The Manhattan DA, Cyrus Vance, announced supposed changes -- supported by statements from de Blasio and Bratton among others – claiming to represent a meaningful departure in arrest practices for low-level infractions in his borough. His plan seemed substantive at first brush, but when we at PROP took a closer look, we saw it for what it really was: a distinction without a difference providing no true reformof broken windows arrest and summonsing practices that inflict harm and hardship on primarily New Yorkers of color everyday. Here are links to relevant articles -- please disregard the headlines which were lifted from Vance's press release & completely misstate the facts -- from the New York Times and the Gothamist that include PROP’s comments and criticisms:

The New York Times: Summonses, Not Arrests, for Small Crimes in Manhattan

The Gothamist: The NYPD Will Stop Making Arrests For Most Low-Level Offenses In Manhattan

"Broken Windows" Video - Here is a powerful 8 minute video -- produced in a highly professional fashion by the online news platform Elite Daily -- featuring PROP's views on abusive & discriminatory NYPD tactics.

Ten Days in the Life of a Police Reformer - Here's Bob's recent op ed published in an online news outlet, the Gotham Gazette. It's an attempt to present some of the troubling & troublesome things that we at PROP encounter regularly that drive our efforts to effectively expose & end discriminatory & abusive police practices. The piece also expresses our frustration & cynicism about self-identified progressive leaders who out of political considerations essentially punt on these issues & abandon their constituency of low-income people of color to the harsh mistreatment of our criminal justice system.

Please don't hesitate to be in touch with your comments & questions about any aspect of PROP's work. Also, feel free to join us in the activities announced in the sidebar. Our movement needs the presence & voices of all concerned New Yorkers -- with such support our ambitious policy goals are in reach.

Onward,
