Rod from Queens

Your guest from the Police Sergeants' Benevolent Assn. is a perfect illustration of the fact that the NYPD needs to be dismantled and rebuilt from scratch. These guys are so drunk on power that they can't even acknowledge any problems with the department. They have no regard for the communities they are supposed to be serving; and I have to agree with your caller about rudeness: every single encounter I have had with the NYPD bears this out.
