Bill Bratton said ( about Bill Bratton ) : "This is an issue that the community itself is going to have to face up to when they accuse the police department of racial profiling, disproportionate impact," “Police have to go where the crime is and it has been an unfortunate face in this city, in this country for decades if not for centuries, that crime falls disproportionately on the poor, on minorities". The former top cop did say there were some good things to come out of the police reform measures. Foremost among them was taking tasks away from the NYPD that the department never wanted or was designed to be tasked with, saying officers "would be happy" not to have them on their plate anymore. Namely, Bratton said working with homeless, the mentally ill, or those who are addicted to drugs should fall under another authority, but was always left for police. "For 30 or 40 years, in this city in particular, when something is not working — dump it on the NYPD. They’ll take it. They’ll fix it," Bratton said. "And in poor neighborhoods…they end up taking the blame for what doesn’t go right. And so much of what doesn’t go right is the rest of city government’s failure to fix things” External link

Bill Bratton said ( about Bill Bratton ) : "This is an issue that the community itself is going to have to face up to when they accuse the police department of racial profiling, disproportionate impact," “Police have to go where the crime is and it has been an unfortunate face in this city, in this country for decades if not for centuries, that crime falls disproportionately on the poor, on minorities". The former top cop did say there were some good things to come out of the police reform measures. Foremost among them was taking tasks away from the NYPD that the department never wanted or was designed to be tasked with, saying officers "would be happy" not to have them on their plate anymore. Namely, Bratton said working with homeless, the mentally ill, or those who are addicted to drugs should fall under another authority, but was always left for police. "For 30 or 40 years, in this city in particular, when something is not working — dump it on the NYPD. They’ll take it. They’ll fix it," Bratton said. "And in poor neighborhoods…they end up taking the blame for what doesn’t go right. And so much of what doesn’t go right is the rest of city government’s failure to fix things” External link

The former top cop did say there were some good things to come out of the police reform measures. Foremost among them was taking tasks away from the NYPD that the department never wanted or was designed to be tasked with, saying officers "would be happy" not to have them on their plate anymore. Namely, Bratton said working with homeless, the mentally ill, or those who are addicted to drugs should fall under another authority, but was always left for police. "For 30 or 40 years, in this city in particular, when something is not working — dump it on the NYPD. They’ll take it. They’ll fix it," Bratton said.

foxnews Friday, December 10, 2021 12:53:00 PM EAT

Bill Bratton said ( about Bill Bratton ) : "This is an issue that the community itself is going to have to face up to when they accuse the police department of racial profiling, disproportionate impact," “Police have to go where the crime is and it has been an unfortunate face in this city, in this country for decades if not for centuries, that crime falls disproportionately on the poor, on minorities". The former top cop did say there were some good things to come out of the police reform measures. Foremost among them was taking tasks away from the NYPD that the department never wanted or was designed to be tasked with, saying officers "would be happy" not to have them on their plate anymore. Namely, Bratton said working with homeless, the mentally ill, or those who are addicted to drugs should fall under another authority, but was always left for police. "For 30 or 40 years, in this city in particular, when something is not working — dump it on the NYPD. They’ll take it. They’ll fix it," Bratton said. "And in poor neighborhoods…they end up taking the blame for what doesn’t go right. And so much of what doesn’t go right is the rest of city government’s failure to fix things” External link
