There has been talk that there should be a decrease in NYPD funding in the budget. This is totally illogical.
If there needs to be any cut in the city's budget due to the current economic crisis, then let the cuts come from other places. The NYPD and FDNY are the two most critical departments in our city.
Those officers who are not doing their jobs properly should be dealt with immediately, and should not be reflective of the vast majority of the department.
Our elected officials must stand against any such proposals.
