It appears the New York City council would like to see some changes in the NYPD.
No, really? Ostensibly, the reason is to provide oversight. In reality, it's because Bloomberg is a power-hungry, racist, megalomaniac nut job.
Part of the NYPD's problem is Mayor Bloomberg himself. The fact that he regards the police department as both "his" and a "military organization" is indicative of his mindset. Bloomberg wants a military force policing his city and has done everything in his power to bring his own brand of martial law to NYC. For its own good, of course.
Claiming sole direction of the city police force, and describing them as a military organization? Geez. Only a right-wing nut job would have any problems with that.
