Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Power Struggle In NYC

It will be interesting to see what happens in the latest power struggle between the police union and its members and the mayor.  The NYPD has won most of its confrontations with majors, including Rudy Giuliani whom they tussled with in the '90s.

But I think the climate is different now.  Crime is down and awareness of police lethality is up.  I'm not sure that they will win this time.

But the idea of a police slow down is not going to win them many supporters.
