    "NYPD disbanding anti-crime unit, another officer disciplined for protest actions

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- The NYPD announced Monday it is eliminating its anti-crime unit, a group of plainclothes officers who blend in to fight crime but have caused tension in relations with the communities.

    Police Commissioner Dermot Shea described the move as a massive cultural shift for the department, saying the 600 officers who are part of the unit will be transitioned to other departments, including the detective bureau and neighborhood policing.

    "This is a seismic shift in the culture of how the NYPD polices this great city," he said. "I would consider this in the realm of closing one of the last chapters of 'Stop, Question and Frisk'...I think it's time to more forward and change how we police in this city. We can do it with brains. We can do it with guile. We can move away from brute force."

    Anti-crime officers are often closest to criminals, and Shea said the move is "not without risk" as he questioned whether the decision would result in fewer firearms being taken off the streets. He said the risk is "squarely on my shoulders."

    PBA President Pat Lynch blasted the decision.

    "Anti-Crime's mission was to protect New Yorkers by proactively preventing crime, especially gun violence," he said in a statement. "Shooting and murders are both climbing steadily upward, but our city leaders have clearly decided that proactive policing isn't a priority anymore. They chose this strategy. They will have to reckon with the consequences."

    NYC' violent crime rate is going to take off like a rocket.

    I ran one of those teams for four years. We did God's work.

    Just breaks my heart.

    Crime will rise and the poor, minority neighborhoods will be hit the hardest.

    I'd be surprised if it took that long.

    They will get a few months of padding stats and then they wont be able to hide it as the criminals take over areas. Then they will get a drastic drop in crime as folks will stop reporting them all together as they become apathetic to the problem.

    These "people" don't give a hoot about all the poor and struggling families who will be preyed upon by common thugs. They dont give a hoot about the countless kids whose lives will be ruined by things "recruiting" them into gangs.

    The question is will there ever be a backlash from those communities. Not against the cops, but against the known thugs in their midst? With cops underfunded who is going to go investigating the missing dealer or dozen??

    Dollars to donuts, when the SSS brigades appear the city will immediately have the resources, will and willing officers to go after those criminals.

    There's your problem. New York isn't a community, it's a bunch of communities that hate each other, all packed together in a place about big enough for a family of Texans.
