dirty pigs – When the corrupt NYPD isn’t busy arresting 12 year old girls for doodling or drunk driving while on duty, what else could they possibly be doing? Well, for starters they’re sleeping on duty, standing around playing PSP video games with an M16 slung over their shoulder at Grand Central, stealing drugs from evidence and getting high, abusing their authority and the society they’re supposed to protect, etc. the list goes on.
Undercover (Seriously, LOL) or uniformed, members of the NYPD are by far the most ignorant demographic in our society. Don’t respect the uniform or the badge, NYPD is a disgrace to law and government around the world. Everyone knows it. When these ignorant doush bags are raping young women behind clubs, selling narcotics out of their patrol cruisers and then they want you to respect them for “risking their life” you should understand they are the worst criminals because they have irresponsible politicians asking everyone to “bow down” to a bunch of half wit pigs raised in the gutters of the city. Don’t bother.
The requirement for becoming a detective and climbing the chain of command at the NYPD is sucking mayor bloombergs dik, robbing some jews and sticking a nightstick in some negros butt. If you want to make captain you have to get a coke habit, murder at least 5 innocent people and molest some school children.
Some cool stuff -- but mostly disappointment – New York City has the nation's largest police department and a huge number of its most notorious criminals and gangs. Just imagine how incredible it would be to visit a museum that presented the department's history and its current operations with compelling storytelling.
You'll have to keep on imagining. The NYC Police Museum has a fair number of classic artifacts but they appear to have been mounted and glossed by a less than ordinarily talented 3rd grade art class. If you like old guns and uniforms and hidden weapons, it's probably worth a visit but your heart will cry at what could have been.
Best thing I learned: No one on the police force every came up with the idea of putting sirens on police cars. A guy wrote in to the commissioner and suggested the idea as a means of getting people to vacate the street for vehicles on emergency missions.
A site of historical significance honoring the city's law enforcement officers. – In Short
This institution chronicles the history of local police from the formation of the NYPD in 1845 to the present day. The ground floor--decorated with furniture culled from precincts throughout the five boroughs--holds the transportation room and a uniform exhibit; the second floor focuses on lawbreakers; the third showcases heroes, forensics and rotating exhibits. Visitors can activate lights and sirens in the transportation room, view Al Capone's hat and Willie Sutton's bank-robbing tools and more.
