At the West Indian Day Parade in Sept. of 2011 video captured showed individuals wearing “NYPD badges” grinding with attendees, clearly failing to embody the “professionalism” tenant of their oath. Though the dancing seemed consensual it’s not an activity I’d choose to pay for. Clearly the individuals depicted will face no serious recourse, as has almost exclusively been the case for their colleagues who commit much more serious rights-violations.
This video is obviously satirical in nature. It’s purpose is to showcase just how unaccountable are those who purport to “protect” individuals (by first violating their rights) and ultimately to encourage people to move past their grudging acceptance of the double-standards for those wearing badges and instead, change the institution itself.
The only way to address the current oversupply of policing and have true accountability is through competition and consensual interactions.
